A Girl Weekend

What a great time for Natalie's mom and her girlfriends. Despite the rain they seemed to have a wonderful time. They hope to keep up this tradition every fall! Thanks again Mary, Judy, and Donna for coming to experience Mantrap's beauty.

We will see you all again for Natalie and Jeff's wedding--it's coming soon!

Our Wonderful Guests

Thanks for spending time at Mantrap. We sure look forward to seeing you every fall! Hope all is going well.

Enjoying the fall season

Jeff's biking has sure rubbed off on Natalie. Natalie and her friend Jill enjoying a fun bike ride at Elm Creek Park Reserve!

Sounds like a great name for a motel/cafe.

Maybe we should buy this motel and run it in the winter!

If you're ever in Frisco, Colorado, be sure and stop in The Next Page Bookstore. It's a great bookstore with lots to offer, all the top books, lots of cute gifts and greeting cards. Best of all are the employees and Karen the owner is super cool. If you're lucky, Bode & Sam the bookstore dogs will greet you as well.

Our trip back to California and stops along the way.

Arrived in Breckenridge, CO. One of our favorite stops.
Beautiful fall morning in the mountains.

Carl & Vermo Roy
Thanks for letting us camp at your wonderful home in MO.
We had a great time!

Annie's friends say good bye.

Dear Friends,
Can't express how sad to hear the news about Annie. Brittny goes on your blog everyday and she is as devastated as I am. We always loved seeing Annie walking around the resort and her love of mooching food was priceless. Brittny always loved it when Annie wouldn't let you stop petting her, she would put her head under yourhand for more. My heart and prayers goes out to your family at this time. I will bring photos next year but I especially love the one of her on the dock. One could only wonder what she was thinking. Mantrap will not be the same.
Best wishes,The Paneks (Rich, Gina, Kelsey, Brittny, Jamie and "Buddy")

Mantrap thanks you for your wonderful email. Annie loved your family very much.

Another Annie fan.

She was a treasure and always will be a partof the resort and in the hearts and minds of the guest and her family. If there isanything I can do let me know. I love you and would do anything to have you nothave to feel her loss. all my lovepeg

To Our Annie

We are sad to inform our guests, family, and friends that Annie has passed away, and will no longer be joining us into our 15th year at Mantrap Lodge. Annie has been such a big part of the resort for many years. Her contagious spirit and memories will be with us always. We plan on keeping her memories alive for years to come by creating a special scrapbook in her honor. If you have any pictures or letters you would like to include feel free to bring them with you the next time you are at Mantrap. We would also like to take this time to thank all of you who have shared in Annie's life in some way. Annie was fortunate to have such wonderful people around her, and we know she benefited greatly from that!
