Day 9…. the Manor House and a goose free resort change.

 

Sunday dawned bright and sunny and our visitors wanted to check out the Manor House at the Historic Powhatan Resort.

The smallest of our group thoroughly enjoyed it.

Especially when she found a pint sized door just her size.

Shame it wouldn’t open.

But the game room was a good second choice.

I had occasion to use the rest room this trip….

And immediately fell in love with a sink.

Is that wrong?

Sadly, it was Sunday….. and that meant it was time to change resorts.

When we time share travel and I’ve never been to the area? I usually choose 2 different resorts for our 2 week stays in case one of them is a dud. Of course we adored this first place and hated to leave….especially when Gracie found this under the bed when we were packing up.

Proof positive there were no dust bunnies.

But, ever onward.

I was slightly appeased when we drove across town, found the road that led to the new resort and saw this on the corner.

Ample tequila in walking distance is never a bad thing.

The Wyndham Kingsgate actually got higher reviews than the Powhatan we’d just left, so I was expecting something special.

On first glance?

It looked like a school.

And their pond was totally goose-less.

Strike one.

The closest thing they had to a Manor House was the activities center which consisted of a few pools, a gym, and numerous video game machines.

Strike two.

The buildings were much closer together with more units per building and though it was empty in this picture…. the parking lots were filled to capacity the whole time we were there and didn’t have reserved spots. We circled and hunted for a place every damned night.

Strike three and we hadn’t even been inside yet.

Thankfully the 2 bedroom/2 bath unit was pleasant…… albeit smaller than the first resort.

But the furniture was nice quality….

 

IMG_1353

 

The kitchen well stocked….

 

IMG_1356

 

And though the balcony was the bare minimum….

The king sized beds were comfortable.

I did take issue with the fact the master bathroom was smaller was than the guest…..

And while the shower was attractive it only had that one tiny shelf which barely fit a bar of soap. What’s a girl supposed to do with her shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, loofah, razor etc.?

Piss poor planning if you ask me.

And while the guest bath was also attractive, there wasn’t a heck of a lot more room to move around.

See?

There isn’t even an entire horse in the picture…. that’s small.

But we did get the second floor that my husband always has to have. Which Destiny was actively cursing when she offered to drag my suitcase up to it.

I believe her grimace is in direct proportion to it’s weight.

The girls relaxed while we put the food away…. and Gracie drew me something to put on the refrigerator.

I was thinking something like this would be more appropriate….

But yeah, whatever.

  1. No geese? Something’s not right. At least there was a bar within walking distance. And, for the record, as someone who once made vanities, among other things, there’s nothing wrong in loving the sink.

  2. “The kitchen was well stocked” I didn’t see any food but then I did get to look at innumerable commode pictures!!

    “And immediately fell in love with a sink. Is that wrong?” As long as hubby is willing! LOL
