New Housing Option

While doing some more research I found this 7 bd house. Although it is not in the "Windsor Hills Resort" area which we prefered. I think the savings outweigh the difference. It is a few miles further from DW and the resort pool isn't as nice imo. But since we are talking over $1000 savings I am voting for this option. And we will all be in one house....Yippee!!

You can check out the resort here.

Dining Room/Living Room


Family Room

The new cost per bedroom is roughly $330. Add in the $100 per person for food (just a guesstimate: will further refine the cost as we get closer to the time and decide how many meals we will be eating at the house) Get your money to Margie asap!

Housing Links

Here are the Links to the houses online so you can check it out more if you like. I tried to post pictures of the living spaces so you can compare and see why I think we need the 6 bd living spaces, but this way you can see for yourself.

4 bed Brother Bear's Den

Please start remitting payments to Margaret so that we can be sure to book these wonderful homes!


Ok, so I think we have narrowed down our choice for housing. We are going to rent a 6 bd house across the street from a 4 bd house. Even though we only need 8 bedrooms, this will give us more "flopping" space to hang out.

The total deposit is $500. So each bedroom works out to $63 each. I have found out that the earliest we can book is in January, but I still think we should hold to the Nov. 11 for the deposit deadline. The holiday's are going to be really crazy and we want to be able to "book" it the first possible minute.
