Ghostbusters have night to remember at the Laguna




Restaurant Association 2010


A recent “Thank You” letter we received reads:

Bert, We had such a great time on the tour and our dinner was wonderful in the “private” dining room!!!. Everyone is STILL talking about those chocolate/cherry martinis!!!  We LOVED them.  Thanks so much to Melissa for the tour, she was GREAT! We all had a very relaxing, enjoyable evening and I have already told 3 other groups about the dining areas!  Tony, Dawn, Norm, Corrie, Warren, & Sue.

“Thank You” letter we received after a wedding at our lodge reads:

Bert & Karel,

The wedding was beautiful and we owe it all to both of you.  Thank you with my whole heart and soul – for what you have done and what you continue to do for the bride and groom.  I hope to see more of all of you. Thanks for helping them into their home.

P.S. Please thank Sue at the lodge and also the couple that made the cake and wonderful food.  Sorry I forgot everyone’s names.  Bert, the meat was wonderful.

The most beautiful wedding I have ever been to – Eagle Nest is beautiful.  Sincerely, Diana


“Thank You” letter we received after a “Birthday Special” stay at our lodge reads:

Dear Laguna Vista Lodge Staff,

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for you hospitality during our overnight stay on November 4th. How wonderful it was to find a cozy room and a beautiful birthday cake waiting for me after the long drive from Colorado Springs! A quiet, restful night; birthday cake for breakfast; a gentle morning snowfall outside. What more could anyone ask? Thanks for everything.  Aleta Duvall


Recent “Thank You” letter we received reads:

Bert and Gunnie Gang!

We had the BEST time the other night! The ladies and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and others are asking if they can come “next time”.  We will see you all soon and please know we greatly appreciate the extra effort!!!!  Dawn and the Divas.


After a Political Forum held at the Saloon we received this Thank You Letter!

Dear Mr. Clemens,

Thank you very much for sponsoring the Republican Forum at the Laguna Vista.  It was a very nice event. Landon Newton


A recent email from one of our guests:

Hello Sue,

Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to tell you what a wonderful stay we had last weekend.
Our room, as always, clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view of the lake.
We will be seeing you again in April.
