I failed to read the fine print. I thought we’d be getting this great cabin to ourselves, but as our reservation neared, I looked closer, and realized that I had booked a lodge. As in a cabin with multiple rooms rented out and common living areas to share.
It also happened to be opening hunting weekend and my plans crashed. I’d been planning to watch Pride and Prejudice on the big screen TV and drink coffee in the kitchen and run around like a maniac. Well okay, maybe not that last one but you know!
At this point I was considering calling the owner and finding out who else would be staying there. Would we be alone with a bunch of hunters? Families? Serial killers? But seriously, who calls a hotel and asks about the people in the rooms down the hall?
It was dark when we got there, and we quietly explored the place and discovered that we had it all to ourselves! I got to do everything I planned, and we LOVED it! The second night, there was another couple staying there as well, but in such a large lodge we barely saw them.
Of course, being hunting weekend, the owner was in and out getting hunting supplies, but despite the people, and the roofing crew, we had such a relaxing time!
