The 2011 newsletter
Loch Lyme Lodge
That’s what we have to say about 2010! Because of you and with a little help from Mother Nature, we recorded the best season in years! We started last May with several groups and a small local wedding (the Robinson clan) then some more June activities that
included the Dartmouth College graduation, followed by a sizzling summer chock full of returning guests and sprinkled with some new ones, and then… a packed Labor Day house! All we can say is Thank-you! Everyone of you contributed to a fun year full of great times! We had ball games and theatre workshops and Sunday buffet concerts, and
topping it all off was the weather - summer just the way it should be…..sunny and warm!
Lovely September brought us more beautiful weddings and another round of fun and festivities at the Lodge!
Congratulations to Dave & Michelle and Jen & Buddy. They tied the knot here in Lyme and celebrated in big tents set up in the ball fields behind the barn!
Amy and I both agree that it hardly seems like work when you’re planning events with such friendly and enthusiastic people! They and their families are wonderful and we wish them all the very best!
We had our last couples leave us on October 12, after hiking the area,
enjoying the fireplaces in the cabins as well as a picture perfect fall in New Hampshire.
We want to welcome all the new comers to the Lodge and note how seamlessly they melded with our families who have been coming here for decades! How nice is it to feel right at home after just one day on vacation! We do have the best guests here and year after year we know it more and more! We look forward to seeing you all again this summer and hope to make it as fun and relaxing and refreshing as last year!
We think our guests are going to love to see the independent movie that was shot in and around the Upper Valley last summer. The film is called “ Brief Reunion” and was written and directed by John Dashbach and produced by Ben Silberfarb. Two locally raised
Dartmouth grads who moved to NYC but ended up back in the area for this film.
You’re sure to recognize a few scenes and cabins from LLL!
They also shot scenes with Lyme’s July 4th fireworks, so who knows?
If you were here then, you might be in the movie!
We heard they were planning to show the film at the Independent Festivals this summer, then hopefully a broader release. Keep your eyes open for our, “movie of the year”!
Let’s go to the movies!!!
What a wonderful year it was!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It snowed again yesterday. A lot. Maybe even too much. Even for here! Juliet wanted to go out in the stuff, so did I.
We pulled on wool socks, donned our long underwear, slipped into our bibbed snow suits, threw on some vests, piled into our heavy winter coats, got our hats and goggles, made sure to have our snow boots thoroughly encased like sausages with our snow trouser legs, fitted our fingers carefully in our thermal gloves and headed out the back door.
Once outside Juliet looked up at me and said, “Daddy….would you come inside with me, I have to go to the bathroom.” So I did.
Calling all thespians!
