Pocket Edward at the Innkeeping Trade Show

Pocket Edward spent the afternoon at the PAII (Professional Association of Innkeepers International) Trade Show in Las Vegas.  While there, he visited with Niles and the gang at Deneen Pottery.  The Deneen Pottery Company make the Cullen House and Miller Tree Inn mugs that we sell at the inn.  They have some beautiful hand crafted products and it was great seeing them in person once again.

Pocket Edward in Las Vegas

This week, Pocket Edward is attending the PAII (Professional Association of Innkeepers International) Conference in Las Vegas.  Today was filled with keynote speakers and classes to help make us better innkeepers, but yesterday we played tourist.  We took a Big Bus tour of the city and took Pocket Edward to have his picture taken with a million dollars.  We think Pocket Edward looks like a million!

More Weather Vane Progress

The contractor finished the sheet rock and mudding this week.  Innkeeper Bill is putting the first coat of primer on today.  We will pick out the lighting this week and hopefully get the walls painted.

Tracking in Eastern Washington

Though it is cold here and we had a few tiny snowflakes, last night, we have nothing on Eastern Washington.  We took Pocket Edward on a road trip to let him track a little in the snowy mountains.  Our car thermometer read  about 13 degrees at one of its lowest points.  The skies were blue the snow on the mountains and trees were lovely.  And Pocket Edward did not feel the cold, of course.

The Weather Vane Remodel

The contractor came and started working on the Weather Vane remodel, yesterday.  When finished it will be a suite with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.  The current bedroom will remain as it is, except it will get new carpeting.  The old storage room will become the new main room with a king sized bed.  We ordered the carpeting yesterday and today will start the paint selecting today.

Here is a picture of what the room looks like after the first day.  Remember it always looks worse before it gets better!

Happy 2013!

The Christmas decorations stay up through the 12 days of Christmas, so the Miller Tree Inn is still all  decked out for the holidays.  Around about January 6, we will start taking Christmas down and putting Valentines up.

It is a sparkling day for vampires today.  In fact, it hasn't rained a single drop this year, of course the new year is only 10 hours old!

Happy New Year to all from all of us at the Miller Tree Inn.
