Relaxing, everyone had fun, many things to do
This house is lovely. Nestled in the trees, almost at the end of the road, Scandinavian Retreat is away from busy roads. The house is very clean. We were so happy and we appreciate that we were allowed to bring our dogs. We were respectful of the property so dogs would continue to be allowed. We all have food allergies so we cooked and ate all our meals at the house. The kitchen and the appliances were very nice and clean. All worked well. We grilled outside as well. The beds were made with the rented linens and the towels were good. All of the linens were nice and clean. We were two houses away from the community dock. The kids and grandkids went fishing every day - starting early in the morning. We attached a long rope line to the dock and tied together the rafts, flamingos, and even a unicorn to creat a “float-illa” and lazed the afternoons away on the lake. We swam and paddle boarded. The dogs enjoyed lying in the rafts and lying on the paddle board going around the lake. The kids and grandkids enjoyed playing pool. We all ate and played games at the nice large table in the great room. We also sat around the fire pit at night, talking and roasting marshmallows. One couple enjoyed using the hot tub. I enjoyed quiet time and drinking my tea in the morning down at the private lakeside table and chairs. Lovely spot. We went to the nearby State Park and hiked to Swallowtail Falls. We went to Wisp and rode the Mountain Coaster - lots of fun. We went to Funland and played miniature golf on one of the nicest courses we have ever seen. We also rode the go-carts, climbed the rock wall, and enjoyed the arcade. And we did this Wednesday - Saturday. We didn’t feel rushed at all. Plenty of time to do everything! Everyone said they were so relaxed and enjoyed this vacation and this vacation home. We all had a hard time going back to work! We are still talking about the good time we had. Next time we hope our schedules work out that we can stay a whole week!
