It’s been a late fall season this year, with 80 degree days in November and colors slow to peak. But there’s no denying those early sunsets and the blankets of leaves now covering the forest floor. At night winter edges in, leaving hints of itself as pockets of frost in the fields. We’re reminded that this time of year is best for quiet reflection, rest and cozy nights in a warm cabin. Where better to be than Montfair?
Last week we were excited to host our second-annual Montfair Open House. We celebrated the season with hot apple cider, chili and cornbread, chicken-noodle soup and caramel apples (made by Cakes by Rachel). Though the day was beautiful and warm, visitors roasted marshmallows at the bonfire.
One of our favorite parts of the day’s events was the old-time bluegrass tunes struck up by the Doyles River Cut-Ups out on the lodge deck. It was enough to inspire flat-footing and twirling and even some spontaneous harmonies. Can’t quite imagine it? Click on the video below for a taste of a joyful day at Montfair!
