We are sadly returning home from our recent weekend stay at Moose Lodge at Clatter Ridge.. And it was exactly what others have described as well- welcoming, spacious, and very comfortable. We arrived on a blustery October day to a warm home with the fridge stocked w milk, OJ, farm fresh eggs, and many basic essentials. The beds were super comfy with flannel sheets and the towels incredibly plush and plentiful. What is especially nice is that the home is stocked w many essentials that are really frustrating to buy for just a weekend stay- such as shampoo/conditioner/soap, paper towels, napkins etc -- which is really nice and unexpected. However it is -- as always-- the human element that makes a stay memorable: enter Bobbie and Anne. They visited twice a day to feed the sheep and pigs- and took such time explaining about the animals and their routines. Our 9 year old was enthralled as well as ourselves. However, they are completely non intrusive if that is not your thing. The farm has been in Bobbie's family for generations, and you really get the sense of stewardship of the land- which is a lost and forgotten value. Being in the farmhouse made me feel a connection to a bigger picture- a past that seamlessly evolved into the present. And Bobbie and Anne are the most genuine hosts to walk you through the history of what once was, and what now is...bucolic perfection. Also- on a more practical note...I got an amazing cake 5 min away at Truffles for our 14 yr olds bday- scored great presents at Norstrom, 10 min away and had an awesome bday dinner. Best of all worlds.
