Ohio Vacation Day 1 (6/25/2021)

We departed home at 9:30 am en route Hudson, OH. We stopped for breakfast at the Station 61 Restaurant in Youngsville, PA. We both ordered a western omelette with toast. Breakfast was delicious and filling. We were back on the road by 10:40 am. We arrived in Hudson around 2:00 pm. We passed by our rental Airbnb and drove to Szalay’s Farm and Market in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We ate lunch–a Polish sausage for Bob and an all-beef hot dog for me. For dessert we each had a fruit sundae.

We get a fruit sundae, whenever we visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The cost was $5.00 the first time we got a sundae. The price is still $5.00. It is a GREAT buy!

We visited the Boston Mills Visitor Center, where I purchased a pocket size National Park passport.

Cancellation stamps from Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be the first stamps to be made in the passport.

We checked into our rental Airbnb, “Wildlife and Serenity in Hudson OH”, at 4:00 pm.

Our host and hostess, John and Deborah, met us in the driveway as we got out of our car. One of the first things pointed out to us was a pair of bald eagles on a tree snag in the middle of a pond in their back yard. We saw that eagle pair in the same spot several times, as we “moved in”.

This is the street view of our rental Airbnb. The listing refers to our rental as an apartment. We had use of this home from the front porch and everything to the left.
This is the back yard view of our rental Airbnb. We had use of the first floor of this home from the three windows on the left to the end of the house on the right. Deborah and John live in the rest of the house. We had use of the deck and shared the back, front and side yards. The deck looks out on a wetland, where the eagles hung out. This was our first Airbnb rental where we shared the house with our hosts. Deborah and John were accessible, but they would keep to themselves if that was something we had desired. We did share some conversation, in person and via text, with our hosts. Our first shared living experience was a good one.

Our rental space is an open floor plan, with the bedroom being the only room shut off from the other part of the house.

After moving in, we went grocery shopping at the nearby Acme Food Market. We picked up fruit, lettuce, milk, eggs, water, beer and frozen dinners. Tonight’s dinner was chicken parmigiana with a tossed salad.

I went to bed shortly after 9:00 pm. Our king size bed is HIGH off the ground. The bed sits on top of deep drawers. A foot stool is needed to climb into bed.

    It looks as if you got a great Air bnb: You must really like Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We need to get back there one of these days.
