    What a fun show! We came in half-way through: What is the name of that restaurant with the creek running down the middle of the dining room?

    Thank you!

      Brookdale Lodge. Nice, but not fancy.

      1. Nanci Judd says: Be aware, the owner has some “issues”

      2. Fred H says:

        Nanci: Thank you! We like “nice, but not fancy.”

      3. Me says:

        What are the “issues”

      The Brookdale Lodge in Brookdale

        Brookdale Lodge. We stayed Fri. evening Aug. 15, 2011. Never again ! ! ! , king size bed was in bad shape, better off sleeping on the floor. Will not recommend this place to friends, family or anyone.
        Please go back and review this run down lodge and update your video so eveyone will not make the same mistake we did.

  2. Nanci Judd says:

    Can you tell me when this will be aired again or if it will be online?

  3. Gayle says:

    Will this be online as a video so I can send this to my sister who moved to Idaho and now misses Ben Lomond? Please let me know.

    The Antique Store is Fabulous!!!!!

  6. Chris Flynn says:

    Yay! Boulder Creek was on TV!! Did you see our Antique Store??

    The shows content and information was enjoyable, but I did not like Thuy Vu hosting with Brian Hackney. They didn’t seem to compliment each other as a team. My neighbor also said she noticed it when she was hosting with Liam on another show. Maybe its because we’ve think of her as a serious news person and like Eye On The Bay for its up-lifting stories and adventures.

    1. Steve Kr says:

      Well first of all, before you criticize on-air folks, maybe you should polish up your written language skills.
      1. “…content and information WAS… no, *were* NOT “was.”
      2. “…its because…” Wrong again; try “it’s” or “it is”..
      3. “..we’ve think” Not sure what you mean. Maybe, ” we think…”

      Well I like this piece and TWO of my neighbors liked it just fine. You need a life. Well, maybe I do too. But I am a retired teacher. What is your excuse? It’s a TV show for goodness’ sake!

  8. Jo says:

    Loved this episode. Does anyone know the designer/brand of Thuy Vu’s jacket she wore in the beginning – looked like leather, but close up a different material.

  9. Steve Kr says:

    Technical problems… there seems to be missing segments and portions of segments. Final segment is introduced but not there. Tyrolean Inn is mention at end of a segment and then no info after that.

  10. Bruce says:

    Thanks for the tip on Bocci’s Cellar. Awesome food and fun! Not only BOCCI but darts as well.

  11. Rick says:

    Suggestion: I wish you would post a map of the route on this website. Thanks! Great show.
