Hay Sculpture Greets Guests This Fall at Killington, Vt.’s Snowed Inn, as Part of a “Hay and Stay” Package
Sept. 9, 2013
Rosie the Raccoon and her babies lived at the Snowed Inn last fall and they will return to their fall vacation home as part of the town’s Hay Festival, on display Labor Day Weekend through Columbus Day Weekend. For the sixth year in a row, owner Manfred Karlhuber and Assistant Innkeeper Jim Gasco will create the giant animal structure, made creatively from hay. This year Rosie and her babies will greet guests at the Inn. Snowed Inn is offering special a “Hay and Stay” Package available through Columbus Day from $110 per room per night.
“Rosie has been a part of our family for awhile now,” said Jeanne Karlhuber, innkeeper and owner of the Snowed Inn. “So many of the sculptures are simply amazing. In year’s past there has been a 25-foot teddy bear and a 2,000-pound pink pig. Two years ago we had Eloise the Elephant, who had water spurting from her trunk. The local businesses go all out on the sculptures, and it’s fun to drive around, enjoy the foliage and see what has been created. It feels good to come together as a community to celebrate the fall season in a fun way and offer our visitors a unique foliage experience.”
