Nearby Areas of Interests &
Emmett is nestled in a scenic valley known for its
many orchards and locally grown melons and vegetables.
Frozen Dog Digs is tucked into the eastern foothills
above the orchards and is a stone's throw from one of
the best fruit stands in the valley.
A slice of Americana, the small town boasts its annual
Cherry Festival (June), "Lost in the '50s" Cruise Night
(July), and local Gem County fair and rodeo (August).

|| Mountain Biking: Frozen Dog Digs is built into the foothills
above the fruit orchards three miles east of the city limits.
Lazy country roads lead west to downtown and its quaint antique
stores, groomed city park, and island sports complex. Two miles
north of the Digs is Black Canyon Dam and Reservoir with its
parks and picnic areas. The road east from the Digs is paved
to the top of the foothills then turns into a well-maintained
dirt road all the way to Montour and Horseshoe Bend. The road
wanders on the south side of the reservoir through farm country,
open range land, and a wildlife bird sanctuary in Montour. One
can leave the dirt road at Montour and circle back to the Digs
on the main highway on the north side of the reservoir.
|Sports Bar Area: The 5' x 10' snooker/pool table in the downstairs sports room and the racquetball court in the middle level were influential in the owner's design of the main house. Sports memorabilia from all over the world are tastefully displayed, and unique sports-related furnishings are a ball-in-glove fit to the decor. The owner, who is pictured in the above photo beside the bike rack, played and coached baseball, football, and basketball in the United States, and during his four-year teaching odyssey around the world he played rugby in the Outback of Australia, coached high school basketball in New Zealand, and was humbled by the local English pub darts champion in England.
