CarriageRidePicture this — snow gently tumbles from the skies, swirling down and blanketing the dark woods of Cook Forest. You warm yourself by a crackling fire sipping wine by candlelight and savoring every bite at dinner. Music serenades you as you treasure the time spent with that special person next to you. Winter in the Woods Weekend packages feature a two night stay in a Fireside Jacuzzi Suite, five-course tasting for two on Saturday and breakfast each morning of your stay for $499. Wine pairings are an additional $25 per person and to be paid for at time of dinner.

As you go dashing through the snow along River Road, snuggle close to that someone special and take in the breathtaking scenery. Space is very limited and is open to lodging or dinner guests only, so reserve your spot today. $60 per couple. Contact us for available times.
