 WINTERFEST 2015

January 29 - February 7

The Baker House will be transforming their lakefront garden into a winter wonderland featuring their 5th annual 'FIRE & ICE LOUNGE'. Festivities will coincide with the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition and will officially begin Thursday, January 29th at sunset with the ringing of the mansion bell-tower and ceremonial first run of the vodka ice luge.

 

The brilliance of the 'Fire & Ice Lounge' will become heavenly with the appearance of 'Ice Angels' serving fireside drinks in cups made entirely of ice and for those who prefer something a little less chilly, there will be signature hot toddy's to sip while cozied up on fur covered benches near crackling fire-pits or in the "heated spectators lounge". 

"This year's icy extravaganza promises to be the most spectacular event yet, with a custom carved Ice Bar, created by Guinness Book record holder and international award winning artist Max Zuleta.
