January Happenings - Happy New Year!
Updated: Feb 23
We are so thankful for the support we have received in these very interesting times. We welcomed many people for the first time and were finally able to host some long overdue guests’ returns. We still have rainchecks that need to be redeemed and are looking forward to welcoming your smiling faces.
Beginning January 1, we are all taking a break, as we relax after a very challenging but rewarding year. Our Pie Shoppe and Eatery will be open again, from Wednesday through Sunday, beginning on February 10 from 11:30 – 4:30. We look forward to serving you.

Increase in food costs… and a solution…
We received notice that one of our suppliers is increasing their costs by 12-13% on the items that we buy… and they are continuing to rise.
In order to mitigate a large price increase for our stays, we are raising our prices by approximately $10. We are also asking that your deposits be made by e-transfer. That way, we can avoid paying very expensive credit card fees, which should help to offset escalating food prices.
Valentine’s Event is Coming!
Our Valentine’s “Heartfelt” event will be held in February, featuring the lovely music of Jenna and Danae.
