Food scene

Within 10 minutes of walking you'll arrive at the local pub and greasy spoon. Perfect for après ski, and Spring time or Summer lounging. Our kids love the Shirley Temple refills! Wait times can be upward of an hour on the weekend. But with home made appetizers in our bellies prior to making the short trek over, and a timeless mountain time mindset, it's worth catching the fun vibe.

This is our favorite mom & pop - owned bakery in the area, 20 minutes driving distance away. Grab your grub, and enjoy it at the park behind the Murphys Hotel. Their hours and week days of operation are very limited, so be sure to check them first.

We love their Summer back yard concerts, coffee and brunches. Lots of space outdoors. We recently discovered their dinner BBQ platters, which are not only a very good deal, but also to die for!

Our favorite micro brew pub. They have a small selection of sandwiches, appetizers and board games too. And lots of seating outside. It's kind of hidden, as it's located in the back of a winery. But very much worth the find!

Perfect place to get your basic needs like eggs, milk etc. They also carry sandwiches, beer, memorabilia and (expensive) gas. They feature Saturday evening summer concert series, will fire up their wood fired pizza oven and offer other pub grub.. It's only a 5 minute drive away.

After antique shopping (or a Walmart run), descend one flight of stairs to this lovely restaurant. It's the creek view that drew us in. Their stonebowl food is delicious!

Made famous by Mark Twain, and his loaded frog stories. We can't wait for their movie theater to be completely up and running again! We enjoy the Friday afternoon farmer's market (check for hours), antique shopping, and just hanging out in this quaint little town.

We like to call this our private swimming/BBQ-ing/beach lounging lake, but the truth is, you'll have to walk 10 minutes to get there. A fun fact about our cabin is, dat you can see a shallow well right next to our property, that feeds into Snowshoe Springs.

A medium effort 8 mile stretch of diverse and beautiful scenery, of what eventually will become a 350 mile long trail. Enter from the Cedar Center entrance in Arnold. You'll find the ART in about 0.5 miles. Check this site for updates: https://arnoldrimtrail.org/trail-information/arnold-rim-trail-map/
