Welcome to our very first Hanna Banana Blog entry! We just got back from a trip to the Savage River Lodge in Frostburg, MD with our pooches, Indi and Grace, and loved it so much, that we had to share.
It takes about 2 – 2.5 hours to get to Frostburg from Mo. Co., and it is well worth the trip for outdoor enthusiasts and dog lovers alike. The lodge consists of several detached luxury cabins that are totally dog-friendly. And by dog-friendly, I don’t mean dirty, hairy, or smelly with grungy furniture. The cabins are outfitted with the stylish, comfy furnishings, down bedding, and oversized soaking tubs that we humans appreciate. And for the pooches, there were water bowls, extra towels, and our favorite: fresh-baked cheese and garlic biscuits delivered daily by the lodge dog, Bodhi. Our two pooches went wild every time they heard footsteps outside, in hopes that it was Bodhi bringing more treats!
Dogs are welcome all over the sprawling property, with the exception of the main lodge building and restaurant, as that is where Bodhi holds court with all of the visitors. Indi and Grace loved hiking the over 13 miles of freshly groomed, snow-covered trails by day. We enjoyed delicious dinners and excellent wine in the lodge in the evening. Even though there’s no TV in the cabins, there’s plenty to do! Enjoy the crackling heat from the campfire outside, cross country ski, snow shoe, or even build a snowman (as you can see, Grace enjoyed the destruction of said snowman more so than the construction ;).
So, if you’re in the market for a fun vacation with your pooch, call up Mike and Jan and tell them that Hanna Banana sent you. and don’t forget to check out Bodhi’s oh-so-stylish Hanna Banana gear while you’re there!
