New Around the Miller Tree Inn

Last weekend our friends Trent and Mary Beth were here and built us this beautiful new bench.  We tried it out last Monday night to watch the sunset over our neighbor's yard.  It worked great.

Also this past week we had Marcus Berg of Unique Angles Photography in to take pictures in some of the rooms that we have repainted, remodeled, or re-done in some way since the last time he was up.  Be looking for those new photographs in the next few weeks when we get them up on our website.  There will be new pictures for Weather Vane, Elk View, Country Clover, Cedar Creek and one new one for Orchard Suite.

We have been having some seriously beautiful weather this last week, but we keep wondering if winter will be back?  Doesn't matter.  We have those nice whirlpool rooms and gas fireplaces to help us stay warm and cozy!

Happy New Year!

We have been back from our new year adventure for a couple of weeks now and are beginning to sort of get back to normal.  Pocket Edward took us on a fine tour of New Orleans, Montgomery and the Mobile areas.  We really enjoyed the southern hospitality and cuisine.  We were hoping for a little more sunshine and warmer weather, but we survived.

We attended a national B&B conference in New Orleans, met some new friends, tried lots of restaurants, visited museums and plantations and even learned some things at our conference.  All in all it was a good time.

Once we got back to the inn, we took down the Christmas decorations and are now all set for Valentine's Day.  We still have availability on February 13 and 15 and limited availability on February 14.  Hope to see you.

Merry Christmas from the Miller Tree Inn

Another year is winding down and we are happy to see it has been a good one.  We continue to have wonderful guests come and see us from all over the country and all over the world.  We can happily say that we are often blessed by our guests and are rewarded with meeting some lovely people.  We are grateful for the opportunity to share our home and our beautiful area with appreciative travelers and look forward to meeting new friends in 2015.

Moira, though often a naughty kitten, makes us laugh on a daily basis.  She truly loves to be around people and will play until she drops.  She is quite the beggar, so we have to remove her from area at breakfast time.  She goes willingly and is equally willing to return when breakfast is over.

All of us at the Miller Tree Inn would like to wish each one of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.

The Miller Tree Inn Christmas Tree Is Up

We were successful bidders at the Festival of Trees yesterday.  We were able to purchase the tree awarded "Most Imaginative."  It was sponsored and decorated by the members of the Bogachiel Garden Club and the name of it is "Tea for Two."  It is decorated with golden glittered snowflakes, china tea cups and saucers and small china dishes.  It fits right into the front window at the Miller Tree Inn.  We think it looks lovely and so far, our guests have agreed.

Even our kitten Moira hasn't bothered the tree.  We feel very fortunate!

Mandolins, Thanksgiving and Other Coming Events

This past week we were honored to host Brian Oberlin and Evan Marshall.  These two gentlemen gave two wonderful mandolin concerts in Forks this week.  On Thursday night they gave a concert at the Forks branch of Peninsula College and last night they performed at the Miller Tree Inn.  Both performances were fantastic and we hope to have them back again.

Next up, we are preparing for Thanksgiving.  The Miller Tree Inn has availability all week, including Thanksgiving weekend.  So, if you need a day or two to relax before the Christmas holiday season begins in full swing, come on over!

Many events are scheduled through December.  On December 5, Cherish the Children will be up and running.  This is an annual dinner and silent auction with the proceeds going to help make a Merry Christmas for the children of LaPush and Forks.

December 6 is the date for Breakfast with Santa, the annual Twinkle Light Parade and Moonlight Madness.  The Festival of Trees are available for viewing on December 6 and bidding on the trees will be December 7.  Come over and take a look at the trees and let us know which one you think that we should buy for the inn.  Also take advantage of the great sales that the Forks merchants will be offering during Moonlight Madness.

For more information on all of these events and others, please check out the Forks Chamber of Commerce Events Calendar found at www.forkswa.com

Happy Halloween Weekend

Tonight, we decided to get our pumpkin ready for Halloween.  In honor of our new kitten, Moira, we thought a cat jack o'lantern was in order.

We still have availability this weekend and there is a haunted house open both Friday and Saturday nights.  It is called the "Rain of Terror."  It will be open from 6pm to midnight October 31 and November 1, 2014.  It is sponsored by the Forks Police Foundation and all proceeds will go to the foundation.  They are in process of getting uniforms for and training their cadets.

The Rain of Terror is being held at the Quillayute Airport Hangar.  It takes about 15 - 20 minutes to get there from the Inn.  There is also a shuttle bus leaving from the Concerned Citizens Offices (across from Forks Outfitters), if you do not want to drive out to the Hangar.  The shuttle is scheduled to leave every 1/2 hour and makes one stop at JT's Sweet Shop for some pre-haunted house ghost stories to help get you in the mood.

We are proud to offer support to the Forks Police Foundation, but you won't find us at the haunted house.  We are too scared!

New Staff Member at the Miller Tree Inn

We would like to introduce everyone to our newest staff member at the Miller Tree Inn.  We adopted Moira, a 3 month old tabby kitten from the Humane Society on Thursday.  She is busily and happily exploring her new surroundings.  So far, we have found Moira to be affectionate.  She loves to be held and petted and she talks A LOT!  Moira hopes that you will come and visit her at the inn.

Pocket Edward Visits Yellowstone National Park

We took Pocket Edward on a little road trip about a week ago.  The purpose of the trip was to go to innkeeper Bill's Aunt Betty's 90th birthday party in southern Idaho.  Since we were that close, we took a little side trip to Yellowstone National Park and enjoyed viewing the geysers, paint pots, hot springs and wildlife.

We were lucky enough to see several geysers erupt and lots of bison, an elk and a grizzly bear.  We also took in a Ranger led walk around geyser hill and two evening Ranger programs at the Visitor's Center.  It was a fun and relaxing couple of days.

Pocket Edward was especially thrilled with the grizzly bear sighting we had on our way out of the Park.  We got a blurry picture of him that we thought Emmett would appreciate given his fondness for grizzlies!
