Glamping is here!

Written by admin on . Posted in Lodging, Sustainability

Camping at Brahma Ridge has always been a favorite lodging choice for brides, grooms, their guests, even their parents. Each year we add more space for campers and more amenities for their enjoyment.  We  have had hot showers for campers’ use ever since we opened as a wedding venue eight years ago. 

But last year we added more campsites in a newly-cleared area of woods alongside a little stream – still close to the bath house with hot showers (and where Holly brings out hot coffee and tea each morning!).

This year in 2015 we have added some new special camping options – extra comfy structures furnished with the comforts of home including queen-size beds.

Our new camping atmosphere is “glamping,” short for glamorous camping.     Close to nature in the mountains yet elegant in our own rustic way.

Spring Update – weather, gardens, etc…

Written by admin on . Posted in Sustainability, Weather

Now that Spring 2014 is in full gear we can now observe which perennial plants did not survive the below zero weather nights of the past winter. Some vegetation varieties are just not turning green with new growth.

Our multi-colored daisies that bloomed so prolifically last year have not shown any intent of returning this year. The Black-eyed Susans made it through winter well, though, and look good coming back. Butterfly Bushes took a beating with most limbs and branches “freeze-dried” and now only sparse new growth is evident near the base of the plants. Neighbors have reported the same with their Butterflies.
