Just this past weekend two groups stayed with us - a car club and a family reunion. This gave us a chance to exercise some of Tony's decades of experience in the event planning business.
We are able to arrange some nifty packages and journeys and even group discounts. We've got some great ideas for keeping your group entertained while they're here.
Furthermore, if you're doing a team building or business getaway we are thrilled to work with you to put together team building exercises either right here on the property or around the area.
This weekend's groups enjoyed a number of fun activities from our list of options.
On Monday, the entire group went on a boating adventure with Eyes of the Wild, which offers terrific journeys on Clear Lake. Owner Faith Rigolosi is an incredible photographer who has quite an eye for wildlife. You're virtually guaranteed to see some of the more than 200 birds that stop for a vacation on Clear Lake while you're enjoying her easy pontoon boat ride.
We also had fun with a photo scavenger hunt where participants are asked a series of questions that can be answered photographically. Pitting each contestant against one another makes a fun way to see unique details at the Featherbed Railroad. Plus the whole scavenger hunt culminates with a photo slide show at breakfast.
- Poker Run: We work with various businesses around the Lake, including the wineries, to have a poker run around the Lake.
- Scavenger Hunt: This fun activitiy pits members of your group against one another in a fun photo scavenger hunt. We provide clues about the Featherbed Railroad and participants then take pictures that they feel satisfy the tricky questions. The individual with the most correct answers is the winner and we can share the photos with the group via a large video screen.
- Wine Tasting: With a group we can arrange to have local wineries come and do tastings right on the property. We can also work with them to coordinate with a caterer on a wine-paired meal. This is also true of beer, where we can work with our local brewery for a sampling of their wares and even work with caterers on beer or wine paired dinners.
- Bonus Meals. Working with local caterers or even within our own kitchen, we can arrange for lunches and dinners. For lunches these can be either enjoyed on the property or prepared as to-go items.
- Outdoor Movie: All the members of your group can enjoy a movie on teh big screen thanks to our huge outdoor movie screen. We can even include popcorn with almost a dozen different toppings as part of this experience.
- Golf: While Lake County i snot a world-wide golf destination, we do have several courses and we absolutely have a terrific 19-hole mini golf course to boot. Golf could be a fun part of a group getaway.
