In 1907, the Mountain View Hotel in beautiful Centennial, WY was known to be the “Pride of Centennial” as well as the “finest and best equipped” hotel in the west. Over 100 years later, guests here still find the hotel to be just as cheerful, comfortable, and homelike as before. Through the past few months, we have closed our doors for remodeling and are excited to announce we will be opening them again on December 8th! We’d like to invite you and your family to join us in Centennial as we celebrate the holidays.

Here’s what’s happening this month at the Mountain View Hotel, Café and Coffee Roaster:

Mountain Music Festivals

Nothing like music in the mountains….the peace of sounds echo over the valley with songbirds singing trying to keep tune with the music. Small towns  in the mountain regions hold music festivals with food and artisans from the region join in to make it more memorable and engaging. Our little mountain town Of Centennial Wyoming  holds a new festival and is in the second year of success. When a town of 270 fills with people excitement fills the air. I encourage you to find a mountain town music and arts festival and plan a trip. Relax and enjoy the air and people from all over the world that attend these events. For your listening pleasure;Music life

 

City Living in Solitude

On a recent trip through a city, I realized something about me and people that live in the city center’s. “City people want to live alone but are afraid of the solitude.” Let me explain, in the city we move about our day and when returning home rush to get inside. Is this to avoid more human contact with the neighbor’s? I think so! All of the movement and action in a city allows one to be alone in a crowd, in a crowd one is not noticed like in a rural setting. In rural settings every move is noticed because so few exist. So we are more exposed. In the city we can move about barely noticed and live alone in large groups.

I moved away from the city 7 years ago and I realized this fact only last week. Now that I have experienced what true solitude is, I can not say I would ever live in that loneliness of the city again. It is dark and without feeling. The solitude of the middle of nowhere is like music, it is loud with life and peace at the same time. Your soul speaks and the people you have contact with are or seem more genuine.

If you live in the city…travel to a remote place and spend more than one day in this setting, and if you live in rural area go to the city and also stay for more than a day and observe what you see and feel. Then you may agree with my new mantra “City people want to live alone but are afraid of the solitude.”Storms

Spring Snow Travel

It is here! Spring Snow and wet roads make for slow travel. However early risers get the fresh powder. And for those of us which use snow shoveling for therapy out early with the snow removal equipment “a shovel”12036669_1049792005066299_5454788957978697424_n.Spring Snow TravelStay with us!

Winter Wyoming Traveling

At times it can be very slow moving or stopped due to road closures. Wind in the Winter is even higher, it can gust up to 75mph, in the east this is called a hurricane. We that live in Wyoming learn to plan trips to town around the weather.

If you are a winter sports activist then driving in extreme Winter conditions is a task required to enjoy your activity. Although tough at times the roads, once you arrive to your destination in the mountains, the pain of Wyoming Winter Travel goes away quickly.
