"I'm not sure I can summarize our trip in just a few words ... From the moment we turned into the driveway our mouths were open. The land, the house, the lake, the view are all utterly gorgeous! There were 10 adults and two children in our group. We arrived before the rest of our clan, and I loved showing each couple around the house and watching their faces as they took in every room and all the details ... and the deck with that amazing view! The furnishings and decorations are just perfect!
Our group was our four children and their spouses, plus two grandkids. The bottom level with the bedroom housing two queen-sized beds and its own private bathroom was perfect for the parents with the two granddaughters (ages 10 and 7). The game room is also on this level, and we put an air mattress in the office for my son and his wife to have a private room as well. The other couples arrived first and snagged the upstairs bedrooms (we got the master, of course). ;)
The bathrooms are beautifully updated with gorgeous tile and fixtures. The "car wash" shower in the master was awesome! The kitchen was perfect as we brought all of our food and drinks so we wouldn't have to leave the house! (Two refrigerators sure helped!)
We did do the short drive to Greeter Falls and hiked down to swim at the bottom of the falls. That was so much fun, even though the falls weren't gushing that day. There was still plenty of water to swim! However, we didn't stay long since we wanted to get back to the house!
Two of the guys spent many hours on the canoe jug fishing. Our granddaughters must have burned off 300,000 calories jumping off the dock into the lake and climbing back up the ladder. It was hard to keep them out of it! The garage full of floats was a pleasant surprise! Everybody enjoyed floating on the lake together. The paddle boat was so much fun, too! The girls had their little electric scooters with them and the driveway was perfect for that! The seven-year-old fell in love with the male donkey (and vice versa!) and didn't want to leave him. <3 We visited the momma and baby, too. One of my favorite spots was the rainbow hammock by the lake. So peaceful!! We loved hearing the geese fly over, sometimes "crash landing" into the lake. We played board games, foosball, ping pong and corn hole ... and enjoyed the fire pit on the last night.
It was the perfect place for our family getaway. Time to decompress and reconnect with each other. Thank you for an amazing trip!"
