A Season’s HolidayStay that stays with you
OCTOBER 24, 2017 • LOGDEN LODGE BLOG • BY ANNELIES ELLERMAN
Wherever you are born or grew up, the imagery we all share is a holiday season with fluffy snow, colourful lights, a tree in the house and probably above all else, quality time with family and loved ones. Children travel, sometimes from far, to spend time with their parents, enjoy mum's (or dad’s) cooking, go for long walks and play games together, preferable in our PJ’s, all day long. Time stops, no-where you need to go.
It is the time that magical something is the air that makes us cheerful and expectant, but also reflect. What did we accomplish this year, is there something we like to do (better) in the next? On our relationships and those who are not with us anymore. Happiness and sadness go hand in hand and that is ok, because it is Christmas, because it is New Year.
During our first year as a Lodge we thought long about how we could best create a December to remember?
As we do with all that concerns our Lodge, foremost we think of how we would like to spend our holidays in these magical woods ourselves and hope our guests will like it too. For instance, we’d love to have privacy, so we built our cabins not next to each other but apart. Coziness, to us a cabin is not a cabin without a wood burning stove. Relaxation to recharge, so we made sure the beds are of high quality and the bathrooms have a large deep soaker bath. And very important, to be able to choose to do nothing at all one day and get outside the next, reason why we offer five special ski packages during winter.
So in December we roam our property and carefully pick the most beautiful trees we can find and add some little touches of Christmas throughout the cabins. “The Cabin was wonderful with all the things you need to fully feel at home, there was a decorated real Christmas tree in the living room, all the cabins were decorated with lights, and of course the wood burning stove that seemed to be on all the time. When you stepped outside you were greeted with fresh powder snow each day, what more could you ask for?” , is how one of guests described Christmas.
And New Year’s Eve? “They had an amazing set up for all guests during the countdown - candles lighting the way to the bonfire, champagne and mulled wine for the guests, and fireworks at midnight.” “I couldn't imagine a better way to ring in the New Year!”
We wish you and yours
a Wonderful Christmas
and a Happy New Year!
