My husband and I came up on Friday afternoon with another couple. Due to us booking late and limited availability, we stayed in a lakeside cabin for 12 people on Friday, then had to check out and into the Lodge on Saturday. This turned out great because we would never have booked a cabin for 12 people when it was only 4 of us! Now we KNOW that we LOVE the cabin and we will be back next year with more friends and rent the cabin!
Saturday we went rafting down the Dead River! We had never rafted before and I have to admit, I was a bit nervous! "Down Town Peter Brown" was awesome and told me on the bus ride to the river that my butterflies would soon fade once the adrenaline kicked in, and boy was he right!! He kept us laughing all "10 minutes" of the bus ride and again at the BBQ that afternoon! I was disappointed we were not assigned to him as a guide for our raft! But, my dissappointment faded quickly once we were on the raft with Kim, our guide. She was awesome! She was great at getting us to work as a team paddling, she led us into some great waves but kept us safe at the same time! She made the whole group laugh, including me, when she played a fun prank on me! She was super fun!
After the rafting trip we could not stop laughing during the slide show at the BBQ. The food was great, but the slide show and the commentary done by another guide, I don't know his name, was even better! Totally hilarious! We then went down the street to watch a pumpkin get blown to pieces! Chunks of pumpkin were blown all over the place, it was awesome!
After that we enjoyed the live music by Suzie and the Smelts and the pub. We tried 4 different beers and brought home a Growler! We slept Saturday night upstairs in the lodge. I prefer the cabin, but was glad that all 4 of us could enjoy lots of fresh brewed beer and walk up to our room without having to drive to the cabins. We all had a fun time with lots of laughs the entire weekend!
We will definately be back next year, I am already trying to put together a large group of friends to plan for it! We will tell everyone what a great time we all had and we will see you next year!
