a ground floor balcony?


Following our 3-hour Pictured Rocks boat tour (which my husband had kindly noted was the advertised length of Gilligan’s fateful trip), we ate a quick supper and drove along Munising Bay to our hotel.


From our “balcony” we noted cloud-covered skies, and were grateful that the tractor parade did not further delay our travel. We had barely arrived at the Munising Dock in time for the afternoon tour. I felt compassion for any poor souls who embarked upon the “sunset” trip, as it was sadly sunless.


Our hotel room was described as a “Lakeview with 2 queen beds, balcony w/ table and chairs, TV, coffee, great view of Grand Island!” Never before have I seen a ground floor balcony. That portion of our stay was slightly confusing.

As was the discovery that Holiday Inn intends 3 bath towels and 3 washcloths to satisfy the needs of 4 guests. The front desk clerk obligingly handed me the 4th towel and washcloth with a cheerful explanation that 3 towels meet chain policy regardless of the number of guests indicated with the reservation. How enlightening!


After claiming that 4th towel, I climbed into bed:) A few moments of relative quiet chased my headache away. Meanwhile, from a steamy hot tub, Terry valiantly supervised our dc in the hotel pool. Christian (although not pictured) reported the pool was “optime!

    I’d be disappointed by the “balcony” as well… as I like to be up higher off from the ground when enjoying the view from a “balcony.”
