Destination Friday: The Lodge, Verbier, Switzerland

We live in a snow belt.
Purposely!

It's not uncommon to find the kids trick or treating with a sprinkling of snow on the ground..

My theory is that if you live in a country with snow, you may as well embrace it :)

So this destination friday takes us to the mountains -
 The Lodge located in Verbier, Switzerland.




The common room is centred around the hearth - and isn't it gorgeous?!

The wood has a beautiful, aged patina without all the red or yellow tones
 that sometimes make timber chalet interiors feel claustrophobic.
The green is a perfect accent to maintain the restful atmoshpere.




The party room uses lively amber accents to stimulate conversation and appetite.




a corner for reading, or wine and conversation..




the rooms provide a peaceful ambiance..






fantastic bunkies! 
This tiny space accommodates six children, and I know my kids would love the sleepover vibe.




Beauty that takes your breath away. If you ski, you know the magic that lies in being above the clouds..




where better to spend a winter evening?




If you are more of a warm-weather traveller
summer offers paragliding, golf and hiking, among other things..





Lovely!

How are you spending your weekend?

We are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday,
which means cleaning today and baking tomorrow..
I will try to get some pics of the tables (25 people!!) to share -
hope you all are looking forward to a family and friend-filled weekend..

til next time..

How do you do it? How do you find these amazing places? I'm booking my ticket. This is a perfect vacation for me. One of my favorites ski trips was in Whistler, but I guess Switzerland would do! ;-)
