So, to bring you up to speed: Palisade Tribune Editor Bob Dougherty stayed with the Wine Country Inn for four nights in September. Dougherty described his visit in his weekly column, "A Visit with Uncle Bob." To set the stage, Bob has just watched a winning Broncos game. Flush with vicarious victory, Uncle Bob slept soundly through night, and has just entered the lobby the next morning, very hungry:
"Breakfast at the Wine Country Inn is an elaborate affair, served buffet-style. There were waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, hard boiled eggs, fruit salad, muffins, toast, fresh orange juice, pastries, granola, Cheerios, oranges, bananas, coffee, milk, etc., a variety of jellies and marmalades.
"My first floor north-facing room in the three-story Guest House had a patio, which was a wonderful treat. Sitting there provided a perfect vantage point to study the Palisades and Mt. Lincoln, and to watch the cars and semis roll by on the Interstate. For the life of me, I can't understand what is keeping some of those rocks in place. It looks as though they will start tumbling down at any minute.
"On the weekend ahead, the hotel will host its first wedding, then another one a week later. There is a trellis structure, a pergola, which is affectionately known as the 'bridal launching pad.' The bride and bridesmaids will march from there to the pavilion, where the ceremony will take place."
So there you have it, a first hand account from Uncle Bob of many of our hotel's amenities. Please feel free to visit and add your own first person accounts!
