Christmas 'Tis the Season

December 2010 Newsletter

Gift Certificates now available on the website. If you haven't noticed, you may now buy gift certificates directly on our reservation page of our website. These are available in $50, $100, or $200 increments or you may purchase one for a s pecific amount to include any "extras" and/or sales tax (7%). They make GREAT stockings stuffers.

Despite the change in weather, there is no slow down in activities at the house. As Notre Dame Football prepares for a bowl bid, its time once again to dust off the Christmas decorations. I'm not worried about the pending cold weather since I have the man-powered (remote controlled) fireplace now available for guest use in the sitting room. In case that isn't enough, we've raised the temperature on the hot tub to a toe-tingling 103 degrees.

For the less adventuress, this fall/winter will feature some great Notre Dame indoor athletics in men's and women's basketball, as well as the up and coming men' s hockey team. LATE BREAKING NEWS: Congratulations to the women's soccer team -- 2010 National Champions.

For those who can't get enough of the cold.there is a great ice skating venue in Elkhart.

NIPCO Slating Park

When you're done there, we've discovered some great new (to us) options for dining: Mad Anthony's (a converted former movie theatre), McCarthy's and the Chubby name a few. Elkhart

Another outdoor venue is the frozen toboggan run at Pokagon State Park about 30 minutes down the toll road. This local favorite promises to excite as you can reach speeds in ex cess of 35 miles/hour. If that isn't your cup of tea, there is cross country skiing (w/equipment rentals). Visit their website for a video preview of what can be had. Local cross country skiing is available in some of our county parks, as well.

Downhill skiing is just 30 minutes across the Michigan border at Swiss Valley ski hill.
