Gunpowder Room (#15) $110

The first year of operating the lodge, we would tell our guests we welcomed any and all suggestions to help us make things better.  We were enjoying breakfast with a large tableful of our guests when our daughter asked what I wanted done with a certain pewter water pitcher we had purchased at a flea market the day before, so I related the story of how the men in the family thought us girls were decorating the rooms ‘too phoofy’.  We had suggested they pick a room and decorate it; they chose room 15 because it had a dark green carpet and had found an old metal milk bucket as the trash can.  Thinking the antique pitcher would look great with it, I stated, “Put it in the men’s room.”  Later, as the guests were checking out, one lady whispered in my ear that her husband had a suggestion for us.  When I asked him what the suggestion was, he said, “Maybe instead of calling it the men’s room, you could call it the gunpowder room.  You know, like a lady’s powder room?”  The name stuck.

“Thanks for making this a good stay!  We love our room with the cool roofline & rafters.  Aside from the amazing breakfast, my favorite place was the porch with hummers (hummingbirds), though the hot tub after a long hike was also terrific.  We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, and I’m so glad we found you!  Thanks for being our home away from home.”
