I spent Christmas and the following week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  What a beautiful part of the United States.  The wide open landscape, the people, the small downtown; it is totally different than anyplace in the east.  On Christmas Eve Day, my wife and I had lunch at a place called The Wort Inn and sitting next to us were two cowboys.  And when I say cowboys, I mean real cowboys!  Hats, boots and leather chaps! Whenever I travel I always try the local cuisine and meat is the big seller out here.  My favorite restaurant in Jackson is The Snake River Grill, wher...

A big milestone that occurs in the month of December are couples getting engaged.  Christmas and New Years Eve are really big days that seem to prompt the question (in fact, I got engaged on New Years Eve).  We see a lot of couples get engaged here at The Inn and it is always exciting to be around a table when we know this is going to occur.  Just last night a young man proposed to his girlfriend in front of the fireplace in the lobby.  I am so proud that people choose our home for this major event in their lives.  I know I can tell you exactly where I was when I propo...

              Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday.  There is no pressure to choose a proper gift or get dressed up and religion plays no part in it.  All you have to do is eat!  What can be better?  Growing up in my family, the meal would go on for four hours with patched together tables extending out of the dining room and into the kitchen. Getting involved at the Bernards Inn has brought a new meaning to Thanksgiving.  First of all, you work that day, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. ...

Design and Technology Advice From the Inn’s Interior Designer Recently while sitting at the Inn’s Library Bar, a guest asked me if something had changed in the room – he shared with me that it felt even more warm and inviting than he remembered. “Yes,” I quickly responded – “we’ve added a large screen TV to the room” – No a large screen doesn’t add to a room – but a beautifully detailed bookshelf with aged books does.  Here’s a design tip that I would like to pass along – when you have to have “technology stuff” in a room, think about how it can become an added plus or feature.  My ...
