2018 Concert News Soon, Gift Baskets, a Blueberry Weekend, New in Our Fitness Center, More

2018 Concerts in TJ’s Corral
Good news . . . we are wrapping up the last few details and by next Wednesday’s blog we will start announcing some of the artists and dates for our 2018 concert series in TJ’s Corral. Judging by the numerous emails, phone calls, social media messages and inquisitive looks, we know there is a lot of interest – so check back next week as we start revealing what's coming up!

Has This Happened to You?
Gift Baskets Readily Available
in Job's Perk
You’ve just arrived at the Carson Valley Inn for a weekend that includes visiting some friends in our area . . . and you realize you forgot a hostess gift. Or, you’re here at the CVI for lunch and just remembered it’s someone’s birthday back at the office. We may be able to help – read on  . . .
A couple of us got in really early one day this week and stumbled up to Jobs Perk for a hot cup of wake-me-up coffee while we pondered what to write for this blog. As the coffee kicked in we started looking around, saw a few gift baskets, chatted with the ladies in Job’s Perk and found out some interesting information: turns out they’ve really ramped up what they can do in the way of Gift Baskets in Job’s Perk. Unless we just got hit by a panic buying spree, Job’s Perk has pre-made baskets on hand for those quick grab-and-go situations. If you’ll give us a few minutes, we can also custom assemble one for you in a variety of sizes with anything we have in Job’s Perk: wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, packaged food, CVI logoed items, etc.   Anyway, the next time you need a last-minute gift, or just want to do something thoughtful, we may just be able to help!

Run, Lift, Repeat
All New Fitness Equipment This Week!
We know that overnight visitors to the Carson Valley Inn don’t come here with the intention of doing heavy workouts. However, judging by the wear and tear on the equipment we just removed, both the aerobic and weight equipment in the fitness room near our indoor pool get used quite regularly. So, as we were finishing up this week’s blog, we snapped the above pictures right after the installation of all new equipment: two ellipticals, two treadmills, a recumbent bike, a TRX Pro System (not shown)  and a Paramount Multi Station with everything you need to tone all major muscle groups. The fitness room, indoor pool, and two large hot spas are available at no charge to all registered guests in our Hotel, Motor Lodge and RV Park daily from 6 AM to midnight.

Eagles & Ag This Weekend
A warm welcome to the 200+ participants in this weekend’s many sold-out tours, social events and workshops connected with the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce’s 16th Annual Eagles & Agriculture event! We are honored to be associated with this prestigious annual celebration of a key part of Carson Valley’s heritage and wish all those in attendance a most pleasant weekend!

Cookies, Pastries, Coffee, Cake!
