We're Still On The Road Heading West Out Of Rockford Il. We Got Off I 90 Because Of Construction And Found A Roadhouse To Stop For Dinner. Status:Fantastic Sunset.
Yup, tthat's the Girlfriend's new car right there. We stopped at a Roadhouse Sunday for dinner on highway 20 after experiencing severe construction delays on I 90. Turned out to be a beautiful detour!
I'm such a sucker for a Sunset. I must have taken two dozen photos of this particular example. I bet I looked pretty funny doing it too as I had to hold my phone out the sunroof. There were just too many bugs on the wind shield. Anyway, please enjoy this older post from a couple summers back:
We checked out a LOT of Hotels and Motels around the Lake George NY area while we were there. All were pretty nice. Some were just more charming than others, like this little joint: the Flower Cottages.
Again, we didn't actually stay here. We have no first hand experience of staying in one of these
cute little bungalows, but we totally would have and might next time! The Flower Cottages had
plenty of units and a variety of sizes. I love that some are tucked way back into the shade of tall
mature pine and aspen trees. It's like camping...in a "sleeping in a small house" kinda way!
Oh, and if the lake is too cold for swimming there's always a nice pool to take a dip or just
lounge lazily around. Being named the Flower Cottages, you can bet the grounds and gardens
are gonna be gorgeous in late spring / early summer. There's plenty of outdoor area to just hang
out and enjoy the beautiful weather. It was "hot" out for two days while we were there in late
June. "Hot" being 90 degrees! The rest or our time there it was between 75 and 85. Perfect!
See, charming! Oh, and if you look closely in the upper photo you'll see another one of those
ubiquitous Solair hoop chairs. I'm telling ya, they were EVERYWHERE!!! Like these little
cabins need any help looking good. We did go inside and check one out real quick but we got
there too early and housekeeping hadn't gotten to it yet, so out of respect for the owners I
didn't shoot any interior pics. There wasn't anything special inside the unit we perused but they
were perfectly adequate for our needs. It was just kind of a toss up as to which of these places
we were going to end up staying. They all seemed pretty nice! If ya get up to the Lake George
area some day give this little place a chance. It might just be the place you were looking for!
