The resort pros and cons. And this time I’m blaming the husband for the cons.

.

Because our first trip to Vermont was a quickie, the husband wanted to go back and spend a bit more time in the same area… so that meant booking another condo at Smugglers Notch Resort.

.

.

Pro:

We’ve been there numerous times and enjoy the quiet, nestled in the mountains setting. When checking in this time around, we were going to luck out and occupy one of the newly remodeled units… which after our previous stay in the 1980’s horror sounded perfect.

Con:

My husband saw they booked us on the first floor. And since nothing upsets my husband more than people stomping above us, he immediately requested a top floor unit. Naturally there were no third floor remodeled condos available, so we were stuck in the Willows.

.

Tired. Outdated….

.

.

And very …. woody.

.

.

Pro:

It was clean, quiet and had a comfortable king size bed.

.

.

Con:

Would it kill them to add a bed skirt and a pretty spread?

.

.

Pro:

There were 4 beds in the unit. A king, a queen and two twins… in case you like a variety of sleeping areas.

.

.

And the master bath’s whirlpool bath was in the bathroom.

.

.

It even had its own television if that’s your thing.

.

.

Con:

There were two random cows overhead.

And Holy guacamole Batman! The wallpaper. How bad was it?

.

.

Really, really bad.

I mean, WTH? This is Vermont… not the southwest.

The decor mattered not one iota to my spouse. It was clean, comfortable, and had working appliances with no one stomping above him, he was happy. But no matter how many times he told me to enjoy the sunrise off the balcony….

.

.

I wasn’t forgiving him for turning down the remodeled unit.

  1. I have lived with floors under me, and floors over me. The ONLY real problem I ever had was having a dancer (or dancers) either under or over me. They may be light on their feet on stage, but they can be heavy-footed and noisy as a neighbour.
    I admit Vermont was not the place for the wallpaper, but both Gail and I kinda liked it.
    I have my peculiarities, but in a relationship it is often necessary to put up with the other person’s needs 50% of the time, not just when it is convenient for me.
