Our adventurous week in Atwater was a celebration of our childhood, 50+ years ago for my brother, sister and I. The house was the perfect storybook haven for us to temporarily pretend ownership and enjoy the unique features of an old house with personality. I particularly loved the creaking of the floors, reminding me of my grandmother's house.
We took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen and BBQ to enjoy family meals at the table and the homey alcove off the living room with its comfy sofa. Downstairs, we played ping pong just like teenagers. We only imagined what the attic was like.
Bike tires were pumped up and we tooled around the lakeshore together, exploring rocks and driftwood collections. On the walks down to the beach, we absorbed the Indiana dune grasses, landscapes and ambiance. It was a treat to open up the doors and windows and take in the vibe.
Everything was as promised. My dealings with Tricia were straightforward, honest and prompt. If you are looking for a quiet place to transcend to, this is the one. This house will take you in like an old friend.
