|A Room With a View|
The room is lovely. It has high loft ceilings with whitewashed beams. The beds are comfortable with amble pillows and they have nice big glasses for wine in the rooms.
Our visit here co-incided with a very cold snap. I haven't been in such cold temperatures since I was 18 and skiing in Austria during a cold snap that caused tourists to lose fingers. It is very cold here. Last night it was 10 degrees F or -12 F. I found that my fingers became disabled while cross-country skiing at 3pm. The shadows brought bone-numbing ice and we had to retreat to the hot pools. The weather is so cold that the rocks around the hot pools were sheets of ice from water splashing out. Also, when I climbed out wet my feet froze to the ice and it was painful to pull them off.
This is not so fun. Especially since the first night we didn't know we had to bring towels with us and so we had to walk back to the room wet. Can someone say "cold"?
What was fun was cross-country skiing for the first time. After Wren's footwear malfunction was resolved it was great.

|The Glorious Snow Dog|
All in all our first trip to Sleeping Lady has been a great success. We are languid with cold and over-feeding and ready to return to a more temperate and active lifestyle in the city. The dog is happy.
This will definitely be a place to bring visiting guests in the winter season. Visiting guests, be warned :)
