AUTUMN ARRIVES

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

So many guests are coming back to the Homestead Suites to take in that last essence of Summer.  Temps are unseasonably warm this week and bicycle riders, hikers, golfers, shoppers and some Segway riders are taking advantage of the great weather. There are only few trees that are showing signs of the fall colors that will peak in a few weeks. Our outdoor pool just closed for the season today, and the gardens are still displaying vibrant colors.

Don't delay in making your Fall reservations.  There are still some openings.

The NEW Guest House has become the favorite of many guests who have stayed and already booked for next year!!  Don't forget to check out the PINE:























and the CEDAR:

With June almost at an end, the Homestead Suites is in full swing for the Summer season.  It is wonderful to welcome many of our return guests back for another stay.  Greeting and meeting our new guests has also been a pleasure.


Guests who are staying in the New Guest House Suites (Pine and Cedar) are loving the new look and feel of the space! Many compliments to the designers, decorators and workers.

April Showers Bring May Flowers...

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

The Homestead Suites is finishing up some remodeling projects including our APPLE Suites.  They have the same floorplan as the former Hickory, except that the bathroom has a walk-in rain shower which replaces the old double whirlpool tubs. The countertops and cabinetry have also been upgraded.  Don't forget to check our website for the latest images when they are complete.



The off-season renovation of our Guest House (Pine and Cedar) is coming along nicely.  We hope to see the results sometime in May. 



Signs of Spring are showing up everywhere!

MARCH....CAME IN LIKE A LION

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

Will it go Out Like a Lamb? With the taste of Spring that we experienced during parts of February, we are hopeful that March will indeed Go Out Like a Lamb!  The Homestead is undergoing our usual off-season maintenance while still providing ample accommodations for our Winter guests.


The former "Hickory" Suites are being converted to the "Apple Suites".  The rooms that were converted last year were a hit with guests who enjoyed the new Walk-In Rain Showers in the bathrooms. 


Our Guest House has been "under construction" since November and is receiving a complete internal remodel with new floor plans, furnishings and amenities.  We'll keep you updated on the progress.


Don't forget to make your Spring Break plans to visit the Homestead Suites in Fish Creek for your biking, hiking, shopping, eating, fishing and wine tasting activities!



Waiting for Spring !
