Percy and Harry go to Woodland

For our anniversary this year, we booked a room at the Woodland Farmhouse Inn Bed & Breakfast in Woodland, Utah. For anyone not familiar with the valley towns between the Wasatch Front and the Unitah Mountains, there is a series of small communities heading south from I-80 starting with Wanship/Coalville and ending at Francis/Woodland before you hit Heber City. Okay, not that Heber City is a thriving metropolis, but it's bigger than Wanship, Peoa, Oakley, Marion, Kamas, Francis, and Woodland. Maybe even bigger than all of them combined.

Of course, Percy and Harry had to come along.

First of all, we have to rave about the Inn. It is located on State Road 35, about 4 miles up the canyon from Francis (about 2 miles south of Kamas, which is about 11 miles east of Park City from Highway 40). The building used to be Woodland Post Office (immediate references to Lark Rise To Candleford came to bot Mr. Perfect and Most Happy Girl). It was built in the late 1800s, and the owner, Sheri, has done a great job of maintaining the historic charm.

Here is the main building from the side.

The stairway leading up to our room.

Our room was the Loft, which has a large bedroom, a nice sitting/living room, and a massive private bathroom. Here's the bedroom (take note of the wonderful ambient lighting).

The king-sized bed was just right! Even Mr. Perfect (at 6'5") could lay out completely on it without his feet hanging off the end.

And the sitting room.

Including the view from the window across from the futon.

How fun is this tub?

So next we talk about the scenery. We are so spoiled living in Utah with the mountains so close (the drive to the Inn was about an hour from Salt Lake City). What are men (I think this is referring to people in general, and not males specifically) to mountains and lakes?

Next time, I'll write about the food. Yummmm!
