Attended a wedding here with many family and friends, and mostly enjoyed it. With one exception. We all spent alot of money here, first just getting there! (airfare to Toledo was ridiculous) and the rooms weren't cheap, even with the wedding rate. But we were thrilled to be reunited with family and friends.
Once everyone had arrived, about 1115 pm when all the little ones were tucked in with grandparents nearby, 4 of us used the two hot tubs. The pool area is open till midnight and was totally empty, except for the 4 of us.
We were so happy to see each other again, so we sat around the hot tubs, quietly talking, enjoying a cold one held by koozies. About 10 minutes later, in walk the pool police; a supervisor appeared to be 'training' a newbie. They had to walk in and around the pool, all the way over to the hot tubs at the far end of the area. At first we thought they were coming to welcome us, or to remind us the pool area would close at midnight. But instead, the supervisor said we could not have cans at the pool, even soda cans, even when totally protected by koozies.
Again, not one single, solitary soul was anywhere near the pool, as we quietly chatted away by the hot tubs.
He was nice about it and asked if we had cups because we COULD have beer (or soda) in cups, such a 'Red Solo Cup'. For a minute, we thought he was joking; we're all familiar with the popular song and it's meaning. But noooo, he was not joking.
So again, while NOT ONE other person, old or young or inbetween was anywhere near us, we had to put away our first, and only cold one. Two had beer; two had caffeine free diet coke. You could not see any of them. And again, it was 1130 pm, and we four were alone in the pool area.
The next morning our guys golfed the links; they were competitive and enjoyable. They stopped at a nearby convenient store on the way back and paid a ridiculous price for red solo cups. After watching the football game and before the wedding, we again sat in the hot tubs with our Red Solo Cups, while many of the children we knew (or ours) walked by laughing and singing the Red Solo Cup song. Nice signature song for a lovely family property! haha, NOT.
Now I ask you: which is a better visual for this property? Four adults quietly enjoying a beverage TOTALLY covered by koozies so the cans were not seen -- (could have been soda, tea, beer, etc) -- OR four adults quitely enjoying a beverage in a Red Solo Cup? BTW, 2 of us did enjoy diet cokes in those red solo cups, but none of the kids scurrying around thought so as they giggled and sang the Red Solo Cup drinking song. The pool police must have been so proud!
We're big fans of following rules, in fact we're all involved in higher education. But this was soo far out of the realm of following rules. (those who've been here will understand regarding the layout of the area) If we'd been holding glassware, we could understand; they can shatter and cause harm. But these were 12 oz cans totally covered by koozies. While it didn't ruin the weekend, it wasn't necessary.
On a good note, the wedding that evening was absolutely lovely with excellent food, incredibly lovely setting on blue and beautiful Lake Erie. The connecting rooms were nice, clean and fairly spacious. All have fridges and the 2nd sink outside the BR was handy getting ready. Sunday bruch was fabulous. All in all, a very nice place to go for a wedding, or any weekend.
The indoor pool and hot tubs would be very nice too, had it not been for the pool police. We wondered what it would be like in the summer; the outdoor pool would likely be wonderful. Just wonder what the outdoor pool police would do....
pay a little more for a balcony overlooking the beautiful Lake Erie.
