Presidents Day Weekend getaway to Eastern Oregon: Snow and a movie

Still wondering what to do for Presidents Day Weekend?  How about enjoying the Wallowa Mountains and the great snow we have here in Eastern Oregon?  And while you're at it, start the weekend really early, support a good cause, and see a spectacular film. (That's the teaser from the 2008 movie "The Fine Line" posted above and one of the movies that'll be shown at the event)

Need a place to stay for the weekend?  Check out two unique inns offered by the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild and combine your love of snow with an Oregon culinary experience.  Both are located in Joseph, OR--only a 6-mile drive from the fundraiser.

Bronze Antler Bed and Breakfast is known for (among other things), incredibly rich brownies that will melt in your mouth.  Heather bakes these from scratch, using Guittard chocolate and farm fresh eggs.  If you're looking for a romantic bed and breakfast, consider making the Bronze Antler B&B your choice.

Belle Pepper's Bed & Breakfast serves those same farm fresh eggs, because they come from Pepper's flock of laying hens!   Belle Pepper's B&B also carries green lodging certification and is recognized by Sustainable Travel International, the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild Green Lodging Program and the Green Hotels Association.

Both unique inns are ready for you for Presidents Day Weekend 2010.  Check room availability  for either bed and breakfast.  For more details, visit each inn's website.
