Have you ever heard " home is where the heart is", we think they should have added cool mountain breezes, beautiful sunrises over majestic peaks and people who are friendly and neighborly.
March 15, 1999, we hiked to where the Lodge sits today and looked at the splendid view. We both knew, atthat moment, that our dream was about to come true. We worked for the next eight months designing the lodge.
November 1, 1999
we broke ground. Patrick’s father spent four weeks cutting in the road, leveling
the ridge and excavating the basement. This was truly an exciting time to actually see construction.
December brought cool, rainy weather so we rushed to pour the foundation and the slab. On January 4th, 2000 the framing started and we were able to complete the Lodge on
July 4, 2000.
We worked seven days a
week for seven months.
