::SPOTLIGHT:: Stoney Mountain Lodge




In keeping in with the summer vacation theme, this week we Spotlight the Stoney Mountain Lodge. There's lots to see in this grand build, so let's get to it.




The story goes that as SammyMacman traveled south in search of new lands, he came upon the Stoney Mountain. While camping out for the night among the giant trees at the foot of the mountain, he planned in his mind a national park where all could come and enjoy the natural wonder.


Shortly after and due to the success of the Stoney Mountain Campground, the mountain lodge was conceptualized. The main idea being a place where you could stay and not have to worry about the rain... which is frequently the case in the World of RAAR. The lodge was designed and constructed by the Sam Co. Construction Company. It took months of research  and scouting a location before ground was broken on the massive complex.



The interior boasts many large guest rooms, a penthouse, a great room, a games room, a cafe and even a gift shop. The design is craftsman style utilizing the many woods located in the region. Sam Co. crews worked several long months on the project before it was finally completed. Since its opening, tourists have flocked to the lodge seeking a getaway from the daily grind. 



Thanks for joining us in exploring another element of the Stoney Mountain National Park. Until we meet again... Happy Crafting!!
