Summer Events at Hunter Mountain

There are some wonderful events coming up at Hunter Mountain. During the winter Hunter Mountain is, of course, one of the two ski resorts within 30 - 40 minutes of the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn. But they also have a lot of great activities happening in the summer.

Besides the Skyride, a 5,500 foot long chairlift to the summit of Colonel's Chair where you can see tremendous vistas of the Catskill Mountains, there are the following fun events:

  • August 8/9: German Alps Festival
  • August 15/16: International Celtic Festival
  • Sept 26/27: Microbrew and Wine Festival
  • Oct. 3/4 and 10/11: Oktoberfest Celebration
There are still plenty of flowers in bloom around the inn and the weather has stayed in the 70s with a couple of 80s now and then. Perfect for walking around town or sitting on the front porch.

Another Dalmatian on the Way to 101!

Delores, our office assistant, chocolate saleswoman extrordinaire, and all around nice person, gave me a new dalmatian figurine for my collection on my birthday today. It's it so cute!

I've had 6 dalmatians in my life so far and use to do the show circuit with some of them. So I've built up quite a collection of dalmatian figures. The entire collection is displayed in the dining room of the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn in the wonderful built-in display cabinets.

Hudson is our current Dalmatian and he is a dog with a great sense of humor, but I don't think he'd ever wear bows in his ears!
