As many of you who have already visited us this summer know, we here at the Baldpate love any excuse to get excited and celebrate something.  And since it's the middle of summer, what better way to cool off than by getting in a winter mood with Christmas in July!  Starting today, and going all the way until the 26th, we'll have the building all decorated and be singing some carols.  I hope you've been good, because Christmas (In July) Day is this Wednesday!

Today, we're serving up some guest favorites: Red Chili and Garden Vegetable, both of which will go great with our Zucchini Dill and Chocolate Mystery Muffins.

Come and join our Reindeer Games!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Summer Enchanted Evenings last night, it sure was packed on our porch!  Scott Rashid gave a very interesting talk on the hummingbirds that we have around the Baldpate and even caught one so folks could get an up close view.  Make sure you come by next wednesday to meet some live Yaks from Gillette Land & Livestock!

Today we're cooking up two of my favorite soups, Red Chili and Broccoli Cheddar.  Those will go perfectly with our muffins, Poppyseed and Lemon Blueberry, or a big piece of our awesome Cornbread.  Don't forget to save room for some pie!

Howdy Folks!

Today is shaping up to be a great day. Something that would make the day even more better is some soups and some muffins from the Baldpate Inn. You are in luck because that is what the cooks are making today. Some Red Chili and Cream of Mushroom soups are in the cooking pots as we speak. Tropical Paradise and Zucchini Dill are baking in the pans right now too. Won’t be long before we start to smell the world’s best Cornbread.

Tomorrow evening, Scott Rashid makes his return to the Baldpate Inn to give s presentation about hummingbirds. It was very interesting the last time and we all look forward to what he has to say tomorrow. The presentation will begin at seven in the evening.

This weekend we are continuing to have our plays here at the Baldpate Inn. On Friday evening, we will be featuring Love Letters. On Saturday evening, the play will be Southern Comforts. Both plays should be a great performance.

As always have a safe and great day,

Wow have we gotten some rain up by the Baldpate Inn. But don’t worry the rain or a little bit of flooding has not slowed down our cooks. They are hard at work cooking some Beef Stew and some Corn Chowder so that you all can enjoy it. They are also baking some Oatmeal Blues and Madarine Orange Muffins. They of course are not going to go a day without making our world-famous Cornbread. Come on up and enjoy yourself up here at the Baldpate Inn.

Hey There Folks!

Last night we had the opening night of our first of two plays, Love Letters, and it went off without a hitch!  And tonight we have the opening performance of our second play, Southern Comforts.  Since our theatre is outdoors and the weather is a bit cooler today, make sure to bring a light jacket.  We're also keeping a close eye on the weather and will make a decision later this afternoon on the off chance that we get too much rain to perform. 

Also, make sure you come by early to grab some dinner and drinks before the play. Today we're serving up our world-famous Buffalo Stew and Potato Leek Soup, as well as our Zucchini Nut and Cream Cheese Green Onion Muffins.
