This is part one of a news statement by Featherwinds Lodging, LLC. The news statement provides background, history and present information regarding Featherwinds. From nightly accommodations to destination weddings, Featherwinds is unique in their abilities and what they have to offer their guests.
Our family is privileged to be part of the ever-growing industry referred to as, Bed and Breakfasts. We now are going on twenty years since the inception of Featherwinds and in an industry of many short timers, we still get a kick out of guests and enjoy who and what we encounter in our profession. Having built each of our facilities, we find ourselves in the unique niche of an ever-growing story of growth and service to our clients. Guests often come for a weekend and come back as a family to enjoy our area and our very special town and it's setting.
Just to be in these beautiful Cascade Mountains of Washington is one of the incredible gifts of our life that actually started with the first Christmas Lighting Festival many years ago when our children were little and my parents purchased the first property here in this recreation area for the family to enjoy.
One can never determine where the journey will take you but ours started with the actual first of our facilities, Featherwinds Bed and Breakfast. It began as we endeavored to serve the best, freshest and wholesome foods that we could and ultimately seemed to bring people back again and again. Return guests often request a breakfast or dessert they had enjoyed on a prior visit. On all weekends except holiday, festival and wedding weekends, a complimentary breakfast is delivered to our cabins. Early on we started our Cake and Champagne complimentary offering with a two night stay for anniversaries and birthdays. We found it to be tremendously successful. We have since changed to sparkling cider; however guests can bring an alcohol beverage if desired. Fresh roses, beautiful white linen with sparkling stemware with silver flatware, and a gentleman not knowing how to impress his special lady, just tipped the scale in his favor to be sure! This beautiful and delicious specialty would be delivered to their suite when they were out for the evening and always is a welcome surprise to both upon their return.
With the cake and sparkling beverage surprise we started with, we have incorporated it into the Inn that we built five years ago. The Cake and Cider is still a favored gift from us for many on a two-night stay here at Featherwinds. This gift can also be enhanced with a dozen roses and a special gift package as well if requested.
Part two of the news statement by Featherwinds Lodging, LLC, will be continued in our next posted on 1/23/09.
Warm wishes, from the staff at Featherwinds.
