Slide Fire Continued...

Things have settled down now that the Slide Fire has taken its course, out of Oak Creek Canyon and onto the Mogollon Rim to the West. While over 20,000 acres have burned, no structures or lives have been lost, due to the heroic and coordinated efforts of over 1,000 personnel.

We have been allowed to visit the lodge with Sheriff's escort to check on things and grab necessities.


Gary, Rob & Mario have generators going to maintain water and wastewater systems and to keep freezers full of cider and other provisions running. 



On Thursday Hot Shot crews moved through the Lodge cleaning up debris, enjoying lunch under the apple trees.


APS is flying in and setting new powerpoles and we hope to have power by the end of today. 


We have received so many calls and emails... A collective and statewide sigh of relief that the lodge survived. We are thankful to our loyal guests and staff and look forward to opening soon. 


Special thanks to Jason Shook and Rick Evans and the Forest Service Firefighters that saved the Lodge.

Slide Fire Update

You may have gotten wind of the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon. A small, probably man made wildfire started South of the Lodge between Slide Rock State Park yesterday afternoon. The dry windy conditions kicked the fire into high gear and the Lodge was evacuated within 20-30 minutes.

The Lodge remains unscathed and we are relieved that the evacuation went so smoothly. The fire continues to move North, growing in size with the gusty conditions. Those North of us are in our thoughts as well as the firecrews in the air and on foot.

    Here in NY we heard Garland's buildings were spared largely because of your proactive landscaping design and your cisterns; and the efforts of the firefighters. We are glad you did not lose your historical and beautiful facility. We hope your workers and their families have not be harmed by the Slid...

    On Tuesday when I first saw and heard where the fire started, I felt that the Garland's Lodge would be in direct way of the fire. Thanks to the fire teams for their efforts on Tuesday night on saving this wondlerful property. I read that Taylor had very little time to grab personal items, he did gr...

Our Gardener & Garden

Every year magic happens in our garden. Rows of nitrogen fixing plants are set for the winter and removed come spring. The chicken coop is mucked, the "droppings" added to the compost pile. After weeks of stirring the pile and ammending with other organic materials a large pile of beautiful soil is produced. We use this for everything, enriching our soil to enhance the garden year to year. As Mario says, "You can taste when the soil is unbalanced".

As the soil is ready and the spring temperatures rise the garden transformation continues. The greenhouse is filled with tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce greens and chives. Trays of starts from seed are planted and kept warm and happy until it is time to move outdoors.

Kale, Chard, Peppers, Tomatoes, and more are transitioned outdoors in late spring. Insulated for the first week or so to prevent frost.
