Mohawk has big plans for Presidents week holiday, starting on Saturday, Feb. 15 and running through Sunday, Feb. 23, the ski lifts will start turning at 8:30 a.m. For you early birds, the lodge will be open at 7:30 a.m. for your convenience.

If you are renting skis, it is easy to convert your single day rental to a multi-day rental, which will save you time and money. Multi-day rentals are simply daily rentals that you keep for the length of your visit. You are required to take your equipment home with you which saves you time picking them up the next day when you want to hit the slopes again. Best of all if you rent skis for three days, you get a 10% discount on all three days, rent them for 5 days and get 15% off.

2013_Kitchen_Tour-Delaney_Kitchen3

Once again, this year, kitchen fans can look forward to another great line-up of unique and awe-inspiring kitchens offered by the annual Litchfield Hills Kitchen Tour. This highly anticipated tour is known for including a wide range of kitchen styles from cozy country chic to breathtaking ultra modern. The tour has grown in popularity because of the ideas and innovations that participants can take home to their own kitchens. This year, the 11th annual Kitchen Tour to benefit the Housatonic Musical Theatre Society will be held Saturday, November 2, 2013, from 10 am – 4 pm.

Kitchens in Cornwall and Kent are featured on this years’ tour. The kitchens range in style and size to inspire a variety of approaches to the “heart of the home.” This year’s homes include a barn designed for entertaining with a large kitchen island and table with cherry wood from a backyard tree; an Early Modern House finished in 1939 for Pulitzer Prize winner Hatcher Hughes, recently restored by the present owners to its original splendor; a restored barn with two storybook cottages; a house built for large crowds and family get-togethers featuring a beautiful screened-in detached room with a massive stone fireplace; and a center hall colonial that has a large center kitchen island,a bar area and a traditional dining room. An added bit of fun on this tour are the local samplings of goodies offered at each kitchen on the tour.

Tickets for the Kitchen Tour are $35 in advance and $40 the day of the Tour. There will also be a number of raffle prizes offered. Advance Kitchen Tour ticket buyers will receive two complimentary raffle tickets for the various raffle prize drawings.
