Celebrating the Three Sisters

November 23, 2021

“Three Sisters” is the respectful name give by the Native Americans to their staple foods – the threesome of corn, beans and squash. In celebration of this, we’re inviting all guests to join for lunch. The menu will be inspired by the three sisters – fire roasted corn, beans, and a bountiful array of local squash in partnership with our farmers.

Carols and Choruses

December 25, 2021

Our ritual ‘Spirit Hour’ brings guests together in the intimate lounge – mulled wine, apple cider, hot chocolate, fire, and musical tunes initiate a celebratory spirit. At 4:30, a Victorian Caroler group will perform just outside the plaza and then guests are invited to follow the carolers as they make a stop at the Bunkhouse, and ultimately to the Chapel.
