Weekend Getaway Announcement!!!

This will be the location for The Scrappin Studio's 1st Annual Weekend Getaway Crop!!!
"Gimli Getaway, Gone Scrappin"
will take place April 4, 5, & 6th, 2008
in Gimli, Manitoba.
The lodge is about one hour out of the city ( maybe less...depending on who's driving! ) and they are excited to be hosting a bunch of giddy scrapbookers for the whole weekend!
mike and i go here every year for our anniversary so i was REALLY hoping that they would accomodate our needs and be fair in pricing...
i chose Misty Lake because i wanted you to get out of the city, take a load off and have some relaxation time for yourself. the lodge is about 5 minutes down the highway from the town and Main docks. super easy to find as it's right off the highway. i have several rooms blocked off with set prices for my if you would like some room pricing, please email me!
the lodge features very cozy and spacious rooms, an olympic size indoor heated swimming pool with an 8 person hot tub!! ( so bring your bathing suits and go for a dip! ) the lodge also has its own restaurant with AMAZING food so you don't even have to leave if you don't want to! i was told by the banquet manager that the chef will be preparing daily lunch and dinner specials for us as well!! If you want to go for a quick stop into town to stretch ( only a 5 min. drive ) there is several places to eat in town as well ( including Oma's Tea House right on the docks beside the Museum! )
go to and check out the lodge for yourself... they now have some photos of the rooms up. ( keep in mind that the prices of the rooms i have blocked off are different than what is on their site. a great deal! )
i won't get into any more details on Misty Lake Lodge for now...please email me if you want more info on the location.
