The Lodge is Closed

Hello, friends,
We’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your support of the Remington Lodge, and for your patience in awaiting news of our reopening. We were so excited to get the lodge up and running last year, with the anticipation of providing amazing local food and a gathering space for our community. What we did not expect was the gratification and magic of seeing friends and families gather, enjoying themselves over good food, conversation, and lots of laughter.

However, there was another unexpected factor we had to acknowledge, which was that, as much as we loved cooking for everyone, it was simply too exhausting for two people with full-time jobs. After having taken the summer to settle back into our regular lives and evaluate where we’d like to go from here, we’ve decided not to reopen the lodge for regular dinners. If anything changes in the future, and we decide to start serving again, you’ll be the first to know!

We’re exploring all the possibilities for how to use the lodge, including potentially renting part of it out for studio or living space. If you have ideas or suggestions for us, feel free to send us an email. We’d love to hear your thoughts! In the meantime, we have plenty of projects to keep us busy: starting new gardens, painting, and making other improvements to the building.

Thank you again, and best wishes to you.
We’ve enjoyed cooking for you!
Cathy and Carleen
