Holidays 2010

It was a spectacular fall, and this past week was a warm Indian Summer. The new windows are in, and have made a big difference in the look and feel of the house, inside and out. Window shades continue to be added. We look forward to the next phase, an addition of a great room, bedroom and 3 car garage. Hopefully, phase 2 of 4 will start this spring.

Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away, as is opening day of Deer season. We have had 2 bucks visit the field recently, along with doe, and yearlings. We still have some availability for the house and bunkhouse.

BCR B&B and Kelletville Sportsman club will sponsor a Christmas Tree on the Island for Christmas in the Forest this year. Check out our Fishing tree, and vote for us. The trees will be on display on the Island starting December 10 through the Holidays.

Snowmobile trails open Dec. 17. We're looking forward to another year of riding in the ANF. We are sponsoring a Winterfest on Saturday, January 22, for both Forest Area Clubs. Ride in or drive in, everyone is welcome. Events planned include, snowshoe racing, snow tubing, sled riding. A blindfold snowmobile course for couples is being planned as well. Food and beverages will be provided. Mark your calendars.

Fall 2010

Autumn is coming on early and fast this year. The leaves are changing seemingly overnight. We have guests booked in the lodge for the next 3 weeks. Still availability in the bunkhouse. The road paving is finally complete on Triple 6, but the German Hill bridge project is not. Lots of festivals in the area over the next few weekends. Still plenty of good weather left for hiking, biking and of course hunting and fishing.

There are going to be some renovations and upgrades to the lodge starting this year. Phase 1 of 4 will be new windows throughout the house and some tree removal in October. We'll keep you informed as we progress.

Spring 2010

We've had a busy spring! Lots of guests and activity at the lodge. We finally sold the house in Ohio, and looking forward to summer when we can slow down the pace and relax. The fishing has been good. The creek is full and running clear. Turkey season is over, so we can enjoy the forest again without worry.

The summer will bring the Forest Area Arts Festival on June 19, Relay for Life July 10 and the Rodeo July 15-18. August events include the Indian Festival and Rumble on the River. We will be closed the week of July 25-Aug 1. So, book your stay soon.

Spring has Sprung in ANF!!

The snow and ice have melted, the creek has been stocked, and the orange barrels are blooming. It must be spring in Kelletville. We are looking forward to another Opening day of Trout Season next week, starting on April 17th.

Last weekend, we took a kayak trip down to New Town. The water level is low. We need some rain. "Triple 6" is being prepped for repaving starting soon, because the signs went up this week between Creek Road and just East of BCR. We don't expect any closures, but there might be delays throughout the week.

Today, we took a long hike in the ANF. Everything is just about to burst open, and we could hear the gobblers up near the turkey feeder. Be sure to come and enjoy the blooming of mountain laurel and turkey season.
