Storybook-like Lakeside Lodge

Today would have been the 107th birthday of Dr. Seuss, the well-known American author of children's books, so Happy Birthday, Baby.  You might be wondering what that has to do with ski houses;  well here's a place where you can connect with Dr. Seuss on skis!  According to the Mail Tribune, one Oregon ski area is "Cuttin' loose with Dr. Seuss" tomorrow.  Mt. Ashland is hosting their Annual Screamin' Tele Lizard Classic and this year it's got a Dr. Seuss costume theme.  (Check out their Screamin' Tele Lizard page to see the Cat in the Hat as well as Thing 1 and Thing 2 on tele skis!).  I don't know if Ashland has enough snow to resemble Whoville, and I'm not sure if The Cat in the Hat Comes Back to turn Ashland's snow all pink, but the event is a benefit for the Special Olympics, so it's  A Great Day for Up -- on Mt. Ashland!

The Ski House of the Day is the Lake Side Lodge, a cozy 3-bedroom log cabin a short drive from Mt. Ashland.

In A People House as cute as this, I think I'd feel as if I had stepped right into the pages of a storybook.

The snug master bedroom suite even has an antique claw-foot tub (just be careful about spreading any pink bathtub rings out onto the snow!).  And the cozy fireplace in this cabin looks like a comfortable and perfect place to read a Dr. Seuss book.

Step out the front door of this adorable ski house into the snow and Oh, The Places You'll Go!

So, on his birthday, and in the words of Dr. Seuss himself:
"Today is your day.  Your mountain is waiting.  So...get on your way."
