There was a beautiful sunrise today and it ushered in a beautiful day. The temperature
rose into the 50’s and the day made it hard to believe that it is only a few days until
Christmas! The trees are up and decorated. The decorations are done outside and the
stockings are ready to be hung. Tomorrow I will start baking Christmas cookies!
Can’t wait for the family to arrive! We hope your family also has a wonderful holiday!
Plan your visit to Glade Valley to include the High Country Light Show. This is a huge display
of lights that dance to music. You tune your radio to 96.5 FM and sit in your car to watch the
show. It began on Thanksgiving night and continues until New Year’s Day from 6:00 P.M.
until 10:00 P.M. It is located at the Glade Creek Fire Department at 6374 Glade Valley Road,
about 4 miles from us. A really fun thing to do while you are with us.
The Festival of Trees begins this weekend in Sparta. There will be 25 beautifully decorated
trees on display at 60 South Main Street from November 29th – December 28th. The display
is free to the public and is beautiful with lovely quilts surrounding the trees. The building
is open from Thursday through Saturday from 11:00 A.M. -1:00 P.M. and 3:00 – 6:00 P.M.
This is a picture of one of the trees on display last year during the event. Come out and
My cactus seems to be blooming very early this year. Usually it blooms between Thanksgiving and Christmas but this year it is in full bloom for Halloween. Hope it isn’t a sign of an early winter here in Glade Valley. The fall colors have been beautiful this year.
This is our new blog space for the website. We have added a blog to the website to allow for more information going out to our guests and potential guests. In the blog, we can share things that are currently going on at Glade Valley. When events are happening in Sparta I will blog about them so you will know about them too. Hope you enjoy our new website!
