We rented Marlene’s house last summer and had such an amazing time that we knew we had to rent it again this year. The experience was even better which I didn’t think was possible! But, our familiarity with the house, it’s incredible views and all its wonderful amenities, made it feel like home to us. Even our dog seemed to remember it and couldn’t contain her excitement and sheer joy when we let her out of the car! The lake was calm most days so the kids were swimming daily and even tried kayaking. And when there were waves, they just had fun riding them. We did have a couple of cooler, rainy days and we used those days to pull ourselves away from the comfort and calm of the home and beach and do some exploring. The road was not busy which allowed the kids to ride their bikes without us worrying. We rode our bikes to Legs Inn for lunch one afternoon. We weren’t sure our younger one would make it but lunch at Legs Inn seemed to motivate him. The food was very good and the views of the garden and lake were stunning! The only downside to our trip this year was that it was harder to leave this time … and our depressed pup was even more depressed, attempting a brief hunger strike and only now finally accepting the fact that we don’t actually live there ☺ Thank you, Marlene, for providing us and so many other guests with such a memorable experience. We will be back!!
