RATES INCLUDE LODGING, MEALS AND ALL FREE ACTIVITIES.*  KIDS AGES 0-4 ALWAYS STAY FOR FREE!
THANKSGIVING AT TROUT LODGE

Thanksgiving – the ultimate family celebration. It’s when we are thankful for all of the good things and loved ones we have in our life. When you make Trout Lodge your family tradition, you’ll experience awesome year round activities that will keep your whole family busy for days. Then on Thanksgiving Day, enjoy a wonderful family-style meal – with a turkey and all of the trimmings at every table. With no cooking or cleaning, you'll have more time to enjoy time spent together. Afterwards while other families are at home snoozing on the couch, your family will be zip lining or taking a horseback ride, hiking, doing archery or riflery, or visiting our Arts & Crafts center - we have 40+ year round activities. We welcome you to stay as many nights as you wish.

On November 28 your family is also invited to experience our Pioneer Christmas Village, complete with carolers who liven the streets with songs of Christmas joy, demonstrations from times gone by – apple press, branding, blacksmithing, dutch oven cooking, and more. Kids will have a blast painting hand-made clay ornaments, making yarn dolls and yo-yos, stringing popcorn garland and candle-making. We’ll have storytelling by Father Christmas and more. Create a tradition at Trout Lodge when your family gathers for a homestyle and memory-filled holiday.

Themed activities will take place on Thursday and Saturday. Enjoy our year round activities EVERY day!

Easy Tips for Keeping Your Cool This Holiday Season

November 25, 2015

The holidays are hard. So we’ve made this list of ways to keep you de-stressed and in the holiday spirit! Plan This seems obvious, but it still needs to be said. The first step to any successful endeavor is to figure out what needs to be done and when. Sit down and write everything that comes into your head that needs to be done. Don’t worry about anything like timeline or urgency—just make a list. (See step 2.) Organize Everyone has a different way to organize that works for them. Is yours stickers? Check lists? Paper? An app? Whatever it is, organize your list into it and you’ll feel ready to conquer your holiday! Budget The season of giving will surely make you feel even more generous than usual. Don’t be tempted to spend more than you can on gifts, food or decorations. The spirit of Christmas is even more important than the presents. Team Up Ask for help! Make a day of wrapping presents with your friends and you can all help one another. If your kids are old enough, let them bake while you get other things done. Celebrate generosity by accepting it—not just offering it. Roll with It At some point, something will probably veer off of your perfectly planned and organized list. If the cookies fall of the pan or the gifts aren’t wrapped just so—it’s okay! Hydrate Coffee will keep you up and at ’em, but remember to keep drinking water because you’ll be moving around a lot and bundled up. It’s easy to forget to hydrate in the cold months of winter! Fuel Eat healthy, energizing snacks while you work. (But if you want to eat a bunch of cookies, too, we totally understand. Just make sure to eat both!) Breathe Bottom line, don’t let your stress get the best of you. The things that make the holiday great are not perfectly executed plans—they are family, friends, joy and spirit. Enjoy When your holiday finally comes around, don’t miss out! Save the clean-up and the next task for the next day and soak in the family time and memories. Save the Date In February, we’re hosting our annual Women’s Wellness Weekend. After three months of major holidays, you and your friends will need a weekend off. Spend it with us. We’ve got fun activities, live music, buffets and even more.
