New Owners at Garnet Hill Lodge!!

Looks like the lodge went through bankruptcy and now has new owners!
See;  http://www.garnet-hill.blogspot.com/ for some of the story.
I stayed there a couple years ago; nice site and trails, but really
lacking in helping a first time visitor in knowing what was what; I
didn't know breakfast and dinner was included in lodging, didn't find
out about the uphill shuttle until I left (no signs or info anyplace!).

Hopefully the new owners and XC director will bring it back to life.
Anybody know any details?

Thanks for the post, Gary.  No details, except what I read online
(google "Garnet Hill Lodge owner").  Maybe you remember a few of us
on this newsgroup being pretty skeptical at the time those Boston
beer-loving yuppies bought it from George Heim, and then fired
longtime (original) Nordic Director*** Carlson in favor of some
recent college grad with a business(?) degree but no real Nordic ski
experience.  I guess the new owners had more than a little in common
with the Boston couple that bought the LA Dodgers.  So I hope the new
owners, Don and his partner Mindy, are able to make a real go of it.
Along the way, it'd be nice if they'd bring back some of the old staff.
