Girls night Out

We do a lot of “Girl’s Nights Out”.  Partly this is because our Bungalows and the Main House are particularly well suited (Suite-ed) get it?) and partly because our property has lot’s of personality. Today I received this from Nancy:

Hi, Julie!

We never got the chance to meet, but I wanted you to know how great the weekend was, and how much everyone enjoyed the main house.    We found it very quiet and comfy!     During the downpour of the afternoon, we played board games and sat in the kitchen chatting and having a great time.     One of the gals had broken her ankle about a week before we left but she was able to use the downstairs bedroom and really loved the shower!   

Thanks for everything – we had a blast!


PS – your kitchen could use some Pampered Chef items!

 Name that Frog

Date: April 14, 2007
Time: 07:00 PM – 08:30 PM
Event Description
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County will offer a twilight program about local frogs and what their songs can tell us about our water and Skaneateles Lake.

The young and young at heart will learn about frogs using a miniature lake model and the ?Name That Frog!? listening game. Participants will then be led on a short, guided walk along fields and wetlands at the south end of Skaneateles Lake to listen for the peeps, ribbits, hums, and croaks of various springtime singers.

To register, call Cooperative Extension at (315) 424-9485 ext 0. Space is limited. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather!
