Great family reunion location
The Old School Inn Archer turned out to be the perfect family reunion spot. We are pretty serious about our reunions which always include a theme and tons of organization. This reunion had an "academy" theme focused "learning by study and also by faith." Adults all shared something they have learned in their profession and through faith during brief "study halls" each morning and evening. The rest of the day was filled with art classes/crafts and physical education classes/games. Given our focus we were looking for an old school house and this ended up being the perfect one! We had 34 people attend and everyone was able to sleep in a comfortable bed and an air conditioned room. The kids enjoyed sleeping in the largest room filled with queen/twin sized beds and bunk beds. Adults had separate rooms, some of which also had bunkbeds for younger children needing to stay close to mom and dad. They gym, library, and cafeteria were incredible. Kids could play ball, ride scooters, and be active in the gym while others enjoyed playing cards and doing puzzles in the library. Everyone was happy! The gym also had a large screen and projector with sound system that we used for movies, slide shows, and Powerpoint presentations. The kitchen was great with lots of fridge/freezer storage space and plenty of seating. Nicole and Justun were great hosts. They responded to our text messages quickly and made sure we were comfortable without hovering over us. They provided us with suggestions for where to go and what to do. We especially enjoyed our trip to the warm slough to swim. We also rented the Strike Zone (bowling alley) for a couple of hours at BYU-Idaho and had pizza delivered. Nicole and Justun taught the entire group some country line dances in the gym for our "back-to-school" dance which was awesome! This place has everything you need for a great family reunion or large group get-together.
