With a toasty fire going and wind howling outside we went to bed. Sleeping like logs until sometime in early morning hours there was a banging at the door. Steve jumped up in the cold to find his robe to get to the door in the dark, no fire, freezing cold and then the person left. We figured get back under the cozy comforter and sleep til light. Well couldn't sleep then and good thing because the gentleman came back to tell us that the wind broke a utility pole and our room and several others on our side of the village plus the restaurant would have no power for a few days. He said we were welcome to stay the rest of the night and got us more fire starter. We made it warm and cozy again and slept til morning.
This is what was going on very early in the morning with high winds - snow. It's the mountains and I love it.
On our way with our things to the house a few hundred feet away. The Steele house named after family that used to own the home. Our room was called The Croft room.
Next to a creek with the clearest water running through it. Makes a soothing sound as the water rushes over the rocks.
Next to the Steele house is the little post office I didn't get a picture of. A quaint village and the scenery is beautiful.
View to back door from the front door.
Don' t think I would want to cart suitcases up these stairs although it's tempting as there is a balcony off of one of the bedrooms
Large piece in entrance hall
Our room painted a cheery color which Steve liked.
A nice warm fire set for us
A view from our window at the trees moving in the wind
Antique furniture in the rooms
like this old foot locker at the end of the bed
I like this one

Well time to head up to Monterey. A short 25 minute drive to purchase some maple syrup and have lunch at the old High's restaurant.
