That experience had made me fearful about mountain lodges, even though I chose to give it one more try
Getting away from the busy neighborhood life was the solution I’d been searching for, but my dad was adamant I had to finish the book before summer time and have it published! But I couldn’t seem to concentrate in my tiny neighborhood home with all the noise and chaos around. He suggested I go away for a while and find a peaceful spot to write. I did a little research and came across a mountain lodge set in the most beautiful location I had ever seen. It took some time to get there due to the snow, thankfully it was hot when I got inside, but the owner had told me the A/C plan was consistently on and would keep me comfortable throughout my stay. I wanted to believe her, though I had had a terrible experience before. We went for a family skiing trip one winter and chose to stay in a lodge like it. I had insisted on a lodge, but my parents wanted adventure. It turns out that was a huge mistake since the heating unit was faulty. We had to use the portable A/C units we’d brought with us just in case for the entire stay. The afternoon the A/C plan stopped working, a huge snowstorm and snow congested all the major access roads. There was no way an A/C mechanic would get to the lodge and look at the cooling system. That experience had made me fearful about mountain lodges, even though I chose to give it one more try. The owner had sent me the latest heating and air conditioning maintenance report to show the unit was in superb condition. She was right because the A/C plan worked throughout my stay at the charming mountain lodge. It even had an air purification plan that kept the air quality at its best.
