: Hi Fellow Gatherers:
: Have you been pouring over maps and racking your brain trying to decide where to stay during the gathering? Should you stay in or near the campground? Near the movie theatre? Chimney Rock Park? Or perhaps the Biltmore Estate? Aaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhh! We’ve decided to share our lodging plans with you in case you’re going through the same difficult decision that we did.
: We’re staying at the Big Lynn Lodge in Little Switzerland on Thursday, Friday and Sunday nights and at the Hendersonville Quality Inn on Saturday night. Staying at the Big Lynn Lodge puts us near the campground and the hub of activity. Why stay at the Quality Inn on Saturday night instead of the lodge? Location, location, location!
: The lodge is over a 2-hour drive from Hendersonville. Staying there would mean a long drive back after the movie on Saturday night and then another long drive on Sunday morning to Chimney Rock Park. By staying in Hendersonville on Saturday night, we’ll cut out a lot of driving time. Not only will we have a short drive to the hotel after the movie, but also a relatively short drive to Chimney Rock Park on Sunday morning.
: If you’re interested in staying at either the Quality Inn or the lodge, here are the phone numbers:
: Hendersonville Quality Inn: (800) 581-4745. Be sure to mention that you’re attending the 2000 Great Mohican Gathering. They have rooms set aside for those attending the event and are offering them at a discount rate.
: The Big Lynn Lodge: (800) 654-5232. Their rates include two meals per day so if don’t plan to have any meals at the lodge, mention that you’ll be dining out and they’ll give you a reduced rate.
: We’re looking forward to seeing all of you in June.
: Best wishes,
: Goody Sandy, Pilgrim Penny and Alma
Hi, Goody Sandy, Pilgrim Penny, and Alma,
This sounds like an excellent plan to me for those who don't want to stay at Bear Den. Staying much farther away than Little Switzerland could definitely interfere with any plans to spend some time around the campfire in the evenings. Of course, I'd still like to hear from a couple more folks about Bear Den, as I have 4 spaces left to fill.
And speaking of Bear Den, let it be known herewith that the Trading Post and the Hitching Post (our Show & Tell & Raffle Headquarters) will both be open every night for your shopping pleasure. We figure to have a campfire going outside those two cabins to provide a nice atmosphere for looking over the trade goods, buying raffle tickets, and having a good time with your fellow attendees. Do plan to join us at least one or two of the nights!! It will be THE place to be for laughing about the day's adventchas, as well as picking up that perfect souvenir from one of the Trader's or from Ariel's Cabin!
PS...don't forget, donations for both the Mohican Raffle & Ariel's Cabin are being solicited! We need your help!
