We had a blast in the snow this year…but it’s all gone now. Time to put the snowmobiles and snowshoes away for a few months and turn our thoughts to life without snow. Here in Sumpter….life without the white stuff means lots of new adventures!
You may think it’s too early to start talking about summer…..until you take a look at the calendar!
Of course the first thing we would like to talk about is our hours! Beginning in May, as with every year, we will once again be open for Dinner! More details coming soon!
Next, the Sumpter Valley Dredge State Heritage Area will be opening May 1st. The dredge will be once again open to tours and the interpretive store will also be open. Friends of The Dredge will be holding it’s Annual Meeting April 13th and everyone is invited! See details here.
The whistle will be blowing in Sumpter again when the historic steam train begins running in May as the Sumpter Valley Railroad opens it’s season May 24th during the Memorial Day Flea Market. See the 2013 train schedule here.
Speaking of Flea Markets, the first of three Flea Markets in Sumpter will be the Memorial Day Flea Market – May 24th – May 27th. Learn more about Sumpter Flea Markets here.
So if old man winter locked has had you locked inside these past few months…..just break the door down and take a spring trip to Sumpter!

The other reason that we can hardly contain our excitement is that we get to announce the winners of our Sumpter Weekend Getaway!
It took a while to choose from all the great friends at our Facebook page….but we finally found our winners!
We would like to introduce you to Emma and Kaiden Williams
Emma and Kaiden have won a weekend in one of our cozy Log Cabins, their choice of a breakfast or lunch in our Restaurant, and a free guided tour of Sumpter. They are free to use their weekend in any season they choose, but we since they do live in Texas, we would like to suggest they come up this winter and enjoy our beautiful snow!
Congratulations guys….and thanks for being our friends!
We encourage you to say hi: facebook.com/kaiden.r.williams
We would like to thank everyone for adding us to their friends list…sure is great to have friends isn’t it?
But we have a question for you……how would you like to spend a night in quiet, cozy log cabin in the mountains? How nice would it be to enjoy some alone time with someone special? Would it be easier to imagine yourself enjoying a mountain getaway if it were free?
We are going to give someone a Christmas Present this year to show our appreciation for all the nice friends who have “liked” us on Facebook!
If you haven’t added us to your friends list yet…….
don’t worry…..you’ve still got a little time!

Scoop-N-Steamer is Midnight on Saturday, December 15th!
We’ll announce the winner next week!
about the Sumpter Christmas Celebration tomorrow…..
