It was a sad day in May of 2020 when White Pines Resort in Mount Morris, IL announced they were closing for good after 80 years in business to due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People flocked to their gift store in the following days to buy goods before it was too late, all with the hope that this wouldn't be the real end...and thankfully, it's not.

New ownership swooped in, and now White Pines Lodge is ready to reopen to the public on Monday, June 14, 2021!

What's Opening On Monday, June 14

According to White Pine Lodge's Facebook, the restaurant, gift shop, and lodging will officially reopen on Monday, but the restaurant will be operating at limited capacity and group sizes as the serving and kitchen staff get used to new procedures. For a limited time only, the restaurant will also be closed from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday - Saturday.

White Pines Lodge is also currently booking reservations for weddings, receptions and other large events. I have been to several weddings at this location, and let me tell you, it is a gorgeous place to get married, especially if the "rustic chic" look is your thing!

Now for one of my favorite things about White Pines, their dinner theater. Shows will not begin when they reopen on Monday, but no worries, they already have shows booked and that part of the fun will begin in July.
