Recently, Chris and I have been jonesing for a bit of a get away. We discussed Seattle, Portland, Washington D.C. and Montreal, but we just didn't have the cash for the flights. So, for the first time ever, we decided to rent a cabin. After a fair bit of research, we went with Riverview Lodge for its lakefront views, option for a private outdoor hot tub and the fact that they allow pets (although we ended up deciding to leave Slim with family for the weekend).
It was a weekend of relaxing outdoors, drinking pour over coffees, curling up with good books, trying out new recipes, building fires, long talks and spending time with my absolute favourite human on the planet.
I'm so glad we decided to do this and it's definitely an option we'll be using again. Owners Margriet and Walter were so kind, helpful and thorough, and the entire weekend was an absolute dream.
