Debating? STOP! Stay here. Period.
We travel a lot. My sons have been in hotels in Belgium, B&B's in Ireland, and rooms above pubs in The Netherlands. When we got home from this house an hour ago, my youngest came to me and said, "I am homesick for the lake house, Mom. I want to go back." We booked this wonderful house to view the Bicentennial celebration of the Battle of Lake Erie. My parents, and my husbands parents were scheduled to join us. At the last minute, my sister-in-law and her husband and daughter from California were able to re-arrange a flight, and swing by for an evening. This house held us all, and we could not have been more comfortable. We gathered on the deck and had plenty of room to sit and talk while watching the waves roll in. My husband named it: The Infinity Deck. If you are seated, you only see water...no land at all. Amazing. The three bathrooms were good sized, and even with all those people, we had hot water. This was perhaps the most well stocked condo I have ever been to (and that is saying something). The dishes were plentiful, including huge bowls to hold fresh fruit and to marinade fresh veggies for the charcoal grill. The decor was classy beachy- not garish in any way. It was soothing, and calming, and made you really feel like you were instantly on a beach vacation. There were extra bath towels, and plenty of comfy sheets. And the beds! The hide-away sofa has a memory foam mattress. And there were two roll-a-way beds. And plenty of space to set it all up when we finally dragged ourselves away from the view to sleep. The next day, we ate cinnamon rolls while watching the Tall ships sail from the Port Clinton pier (so close you can walk to it). We saw some of the best fireworks we have ever seen, and to top it all off...an air show was going on, and my history-teacher father and history-loving father-in-law were treated to the multiple flights of B-17 bombers flying right over the house. At some point we remembered there was a pool four houses down, so we spent hours swimming in a great, clean, comfortable pool and whirlpool. There was a covered area with a full fireplace, and people were lighting fires and relaxing poolside. I am not sure what else I could say. The beach itself was covered in mud(as natural bodies of water are sometimes), and it didn't put even the slightest hitch in this amazing vacation condo. I enjoyed talking to the kind owner, and I am hoping I can stay there again. Thank you!
