My extended family stayed at the Sandrift from July 21 - 27th 2012 for our third family reunion. Families arrived from the North Dakota, Texas, Penn. and Maryland, we were greeted from both Chris and Linda in such a way that made us feel right at home. We had choosen this resort a year ahead time with the idea that we all wanted to be together in the evening and be able socialize while watching our kids and grandkids play on the beach and lake at the same time. It began the first night and ended with good byes on the last. We all agreed that we had a great time and wished we had another week. When you book places that you are not familar with - it can be a crap shoot. That week was great- parents & kids went to water parks, amusement parks, pizza parlors, zip lining, fishing, wave running, duck boats, House the Rock, shopping downtown & outlet malls, facials, thrifting (way to go Nance) boating. We cooked out and ate in, we tried mexicani Rose (Awesome) Culvers (best all around burger and chicken joint - great ice cream). The uncles and son-in-laws tried the Port a Vista Bar and grill down the road (walking distance) and came home very happy indeed.We enjoyed the campfires everynite. The little kids enjoyed the play ground equiptment and parents got to do other things while grand parents and Aunts and Uncles watched the kids. Cousins who only get to see each other every couple of years stayed up late outside while there little ones slept within eyesight. We all left on the 27th wishing it had not ended - ah but the real world was calling - back to work for all. Would we stay there again - I think I can speak for all, hell yes. The only things that would have made it better was a few more family members join us and our Mom, Cally could have been there. She passed way this February 2012 and was missed so much by all, because she loved these adventures with her children and grand children. Thanks guys, until the next time we are together - remember the good times always. Patty Jean Batschelet - Waldorf, Maryland
