Awesome Weekend Getaway
Awesome Weekend Getaway
The place was a quaint weekend getaway for our family. Our son is stationed at The Great Lakes Naval Station and it was just a short 20 minutes away. The place was as cozy as spending the weekend with Family. Plenty of kitchen accessories to cook a Thanksgiving dinner. Would love to see it in the summer! We would stay again!
