Just a few weeks ago, my parents and I went to Victoria for my aunt's wedding. My family is from Michigan, so it was a very long trip. We love nature but aren't all that outdoorsy. For the most part, the three of us prefer nice hotels rather than bed and breakfasts, but we were absolutely amazed when we arrived at Ambraden Pond. We had to pick our jaws up off the ground.
The house is huge, modern, immaculate, stylish, urbane, chic, brand new, and totally amazing! My parents shared a bedroom in the main house, and Joan told me that I could stay in the adjoining coach house. There were rose petals leading from the foyer, all the way up the stairs, through the living room, to the bedroom, and onto the bed!!! Apparently, there was a honeymoon couple which had just left that morning.
There's also a lake right in front of the house, filled with rainbow trout. If you feed them you can see the fish jumping out of the water! Chris a Joan even built a peer that you can fish off of. Oh and they have pet ducks!!! They are completely tame but they are free to go wherever they want. You can even just walk up to them when they're sitting by the lake and pet them. I would have gone to Victoria just for that.
Breakfast was delicious too! The first morning we had some sort of English muffin with black forest ham and a single egg on top. The second morning we had the best french toast on earth. Chris and Joan are two of the most generous, good natured, and interesting people I've had the pleasure of meeting. When my father and I forgot our jackets for the wedding, Chris drove all the way to his brother's house to bring us some that we could borrow!
The area is full of farms, and there is an enormous golf course nearby. My family isn't even all that super fond of outdoor life, and we had a wonderful time. If you are interested in golfing, fishing, camping, agrotourism, photography, whatever, I can't even begin to imagine how much fun you'll have!
