Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction

It is that time of year again. The Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction will take place next Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17, 2019. This annual auction raises money for our Forks High School Graduates to help them go to college or a qualified training program. All graduates of Forks High School are eligible for a scholarship. Last year the auction raised more than $90,000. The Miller Tree Inn will be donating a gift certificate for Breakfast for Four at the Miller Tree Inn as well as some baked good (which have yet to be determined.) There are always hundreds of items donated by local businesses and individuals. Items vary and could include cars, baked goods, packets of smoked salmon, firewood, fishing trips, sports mementos, etc. We also have rooms available at the inn if you want to experience this fun weekend. Come on over, help our 2019 Forks High School graduating class and join in this annual community event.

March at the Miller Tree Inn

The Miller Tree Inn is gearing up for St. Patrick's Day and we are all dressed up in green and shamrocks. 

Today is a beautiful day here in Forks.  It was a little frosty this morning, but the sun is out now and things are warming up a bit.  The cold, clear weather has brought the elk down into the surrounding fields.  We always enjoy seeing them up close.

March 17 & 18 is the Quillayute Valley School District Scholarship Auction.  Last year they raised $130,000 over the weekend and they are hoping to beat that record this year.  It is a fun filled weekend with lots of great items coming up for bid including some guided fishing trips by our local guides.  All the money raised over the weekend at the auction goes to scholarships for students that graduate from Forks High School. The Senior Parents run the concession stand during the weekend and the money they raise goes to the Senior Safe Night after graduation.  We still have rooms available at the Miller Tree Inn over the March 17 & 18 weekend.
  Come on over and check out this event.  If you are unable to come to Forks for the weekend, but want to help out with this cause, monetary donations as well as donations of auction items are gratefully accepted.

I would like to say that this is Moira wishing you a happy New Year, but really, she is just sleeping and ignoring all of us. The rest of us DO wish you a happy 2018. Your resident innkeepers, just returned last night after celebrating Christmas and New Year's with family and friends. We are very appreciative of Cheryl and the rest of the Miller Tree Inn staff for taking such good care of our guests and Moira while we were away for the holidays. Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in 2018!

Merry Christmas and Happy 2018

We are all decked out and ready for Christmas here at the Miller Tree Inn.  If you find yourself traveling through Forks over the holidays, we may just have a room available for you!

2017 has been a great year for us with lots of changes.  We have had to say goodbye to some of our staff and welcome new people with open arms.  We have tried new breakfast recipes, replaced worn items, cleaned, painted, rearranged and moved.  One thing that hasn't changed over our nearly 20 years as innkeepers is all the wonderful guests that have passed through our doors.  We are grateful for being the lodging choice for so many and we are thankful for the friendship and fellowship that we have shared during the time that each guest was here at the Miller Tree Inn.

May you all have a blessed Christmas and we hope that 2018 is your best year, yet.

Thanksgiving is upon us, and we are busily making preparations for the day.  The Innkeepers at the Miller Tree Inn are especially thankful this year for the completion of their new home.  It is just a hop skip and a jump from the back door of the inn, making it for us to have access to the inn, and for guests to find us in an emergency.  Though it has increased our commute time to work by at least 30 seconds, we find we don't mind too much!

We are also thankful for another year of innkeeping.  We believe that we have some of the best guests in the world, which makes our job easier and more fun.  For those of you that have stayed with us at the Miller Tree Inn, in the past, thank you for your loyalty.  You are appreciated. 

If you are traveling over the holiday, please travel safely. If you are coming our way, stop by, we might have a room available just for you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall is in the Air

Fall has definitely arrived in Forks. The evenings and mornings are a little cooler and we have been experiencing some rain! In house, we have been getting out the fall decorations and this little guy is our fall greeter at the front door!

We have been serving some of our favorite breakfasts this week at the Miller Tree Inn.  Though we serve these breakfasts year round, they seem especially fitting for a brisk fall day.  Yesterday's breakfast was gingerbread pancakes, today we had a hearty eggs benedict and tomorrow orange croissant french toast is on tap.  

Have a wonderful fall!

Signs of Summer

There are signs of summer all around the Miller Tree Inn.  We recently celebrated the 4th of July, our town's celebration of the year.  Coming around the corner is Relay for Life, which will be like a street fair downtown.  Lots of great guests from all over the world have been gracing our breakfast tables each morning.  But the surest sign of summer for us is the neighbors getting red to cut hay and the roses on the arbor blooming.  Some of those rose petals have been making their appearance as garnish on breakfast plates!

Memorial Day 2017

Yesterday was a busy day at the Miller Tree Inn.  Late in the afternoon, we tried to put up the patriotic red, white and blue decorations that will stay with us for Memorial Day, Flag Day and the 4th of July.  As hard as we tried, chaos reigned, and it was not until today that the decorations were completed.  Now we are ready for our holiday weekend guests and for the beginning of summer.

Today we have time to reflect and remember what Memorial Day is all about.  It is not just a 3 day weekend and the "kick off" for the summer season.  It is a day to think about and appreciate the sacrifices that many made for us and for our country.  Many gave all that they had and their families continue to suffer.  It is humbling and hopefully inspires all of us to live lives worthy of their sacrifice.
