"Even though the Rock of Ages is over 150 years old, Marla keeps this huge house updated, fresh, and clean every time! Our group of friends, some couples, some singles, have been making this our go to place for our winter weekend getaway nine years in a row! We wouldn't even consider going anywhere else because nothing could compare. We each have our own master bedrooms each with attached baths, a huge, extremely well stocked kitchen, several separate sitting areas for all of us or some, new reclining leather chairs overlooking the beautiful lake, a fireplace, and much, much more!
Our weekend usually starts on Friday at 1:00, when we meet for lunch in Port Clinton. We all can't wait until we get to the house and draw our room numbers! We're always excited to see what is "new" in the house. Sometimes it's new bed linens and comforters, new chairs, new dishes, new curtains, and most exciting- the new blue tiled main floor powder room(beautiful),whatever it is, it is the best kept house we've ever rented(and we go away a lot) (and we're pretty picky!). Friday night is filled with drinks and appetizers that we bring and share. Saturday morning starts with homemade waffles, fresh fruit, eggs, and bloody mary's! We then take an hour long walk along the lake-snow and cold will not keep us down! This year, we were thrilled to see a new winery right at the end of our street on Clements. A few of the shops on the main street are open in the winter and we like to browse. Saturday night is filled with games and music and lots of talk! Us girls even dance like we were in high school(the floor in front of the fireplace is as big as a dance floor and by the way, we're all in our 50's and 60's)! Saturday night, my husband makes us all a beautiful dinner of beef tenderloin with all the fixings. There is nothing lacking in the kitchen as far as utensils and cooking items. Sunday is sad as we all go our separate ways, but we know we have year TEN to look forward to!!!"
