Delightful Summer Vacation
My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 1 and 6) stayed at Meadowstone Lodge for 4 weeks during June and July 2015. The home is modern, spacious, and clean – more spacious than the pictures are able to show. The home has two large balconies with self-closing birch screen doors and redwood railings on either side of the home. One balcony views a glimpse of the western slopes, and the other overlooks the famous Kirkwood RedCliffs. On warm days we would open both balcony doors and the cool refreshing air would flow through the home. On rainy days, the home was very warm, cozy, and dry. If it was really cold, we could turn on the fireplace for a while to warm things up. Sitting on the balcony, was a pleasure with a view of the meadows, a small creek, the children’s park, and thousands of wildflowers. The building and home is very modern, safe, and secure (even for young children) and the internet was sufficient to work remotely from the home using terminal servers. We also loved the underground parking with direct access to the elevators to carry our children and items directly to the condo via the elevator and available bell-hop carts. During the evenings we would take bike rides on the many trails and hikes to through the meadows and wildflowers directly from the condo. On weekends we would go drive to Silver Lake to swim or hike down to the famous Potholes. Definitely recommend a hike around Lake Kirkwood also. The kids loved playing in the nearby creek (200 yards away) and beautiful children’s playground. The folks in the area were kind and helpful and even let us mail some Amazon items to the local store and post office for pick up. The local store is open until 5 PM each day during the summer. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had during our stay. I would definitely recommend this location for a summer vacation, in fact, have fallen in love with Kirkwood!:)
Enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Mountains this summer!
