Finally back to what’s new at 100 Acre Wood Lodge
We have made it thru another year here at the 100 Acre Wood Lodge. The “fire season“was devastating.... 80 miles of fire came right to our back door. We’ve never seen smoke so thick or for so long in all of our years in business and growing up here. But, on the bright side, our valley in the spring will be so green you would not know there was a fire. Should be great mushrooming!!!
All of the usual wildlife has been seen as winter approaches, deer, bear, elk, eagles & of course the wolves..... we just heard them howling last night. The Steelhead fishing has been great with the warmer temps. We’ve had no actual snow down low yet, lots of rain. The weather has been great for hiking! Lost Trail Ski Area will open on Thursday, Dec. 6th....the beginning of a great ski season.. The mountains are supposed to have a ton of snow this winter. We are the closest lodging to Lost Trail Powder Mountain on the Idaho side...Be sure and check us out!! Save on gas and be close ton the mountain!!!
There are many other activities if you are not a skier, Try hiking, snowmobiling, snow shoeing or wildlife viewing. There are many hot springs to visit in the area also!!
The lodge will be opened all winter...enjoy a hot breakfast (or cold depending on your schedule!) which is included in the price of the room...All rooms have been upgraded this past year w/new pillow top beds, new linens, bedspreads etc .etc....Warm & cozy!! Our outside hot tub is up and running and fireplaces a blazing!! Dinners will be offered for overnight guests..(When possible)..Be sure and call 100 Acre Wood Lodge before settling for 2nd best...We are known as the best lodge in the area! We are in the process of getting permitted from the Forest Service for a gold mining area near the lodge for spring, for small heavy equipment. Our guests could be involved, like the show Gold Rush, but this would be “Gold Rush North Fork “How fun is that?
Snakes, Bikes & Bucks at The Wood
Things are starting to pick up at 100 Acre Wood Lodge. So I am not as fast at this as I would like. We had two groups of bikers, one who have been coming to stay with us on their trips every year for the past 10 years. The other for the first time, but we are sure it won’t be their last! Great looking bikes & trike. I call this particular trike a Mule, because when you cross a donkey with a horse you get a mule. So when you cross a sports car with a motorcycle you get a Mustang Trike. The best of both worlds. They came from Wyoming & Idaho .While they were having dinner we saw a Whitetail Buck by the pond. I went outside to take a photo, then he started running toward me. I had cracked corn in a container for the ducks & geese & he wanted some. I had been feeding a doe a few months ago, but I guess she was a buck. This was a treat for the guests to see him so close. Later out the front doors of the lodge we saw a Rattle snake!! Check out the photo. (Too bad it wasn’t real.) We had American Avocets land at the lake for a couple of days. Beautiful birds. Another jeep tour into the Salmon River Corridor. We saw baby elk, deer & sheep. Our buddy, a four point buck came back again. Until next time ....Don’t forget to check out the photo gallery.Be sure to click on the bottom left or right of the photo below to go to next photo or back a photo. 6/ 25/12
