We, along with our four adult children and their kids, stayed at 1 Norwood Heights in June of 2014. Our families were from IN, IA, CA, and MA and we were looking for a place large enough for all 14 of us and with enough possible activities for our diverse tastes. We found it! The location is great: just a few minutes walk from a beautiful private sandy beach. The grandchildren ranged in age from 0-6 years old and we felt very safe with them at Lighthouse Beach. One of the many great features of this property that appealed to our family was the very large, shaded yard. We played soccer, wiffle ball, hide and seek, and other yard games with the grandchildren every day. There was plenty of lawn furniture for all 14 of us to barbecue and enjoy eating lunches on the back patio. The house was well-equipped inside also. There were enough dishes and cookware for all of our needs and the dishwasher made clean-up easier. The game room had building blocks and LEGOS for the grandkids to play with while the adults read or played ping-pong. One of us had a crisis come up back at the office and the high-speed internet allowed her to communicate and take care of the issue.
The house has three floors, which gave us enough space to get out of one another’s way when we needed recuperation time. The size of the house also made it quiet enough so that the night owls and the baby, who started his day at 5:00 a.m., didn’t disturb each other.
Lisen and Bill were very helpful in responding to our queries ahead of time regarding the property as well as once we were on-site.
