Back to Junglewood!

As part of our stay, we had to let the owners know what time we wanted breakfast. We chose 9:00 a.m. in order to have a few cups of coffee before it was time to actually eat (plus, we could sleep in a bit..wink wink). So just about 9:00 we heard the ‘jungle’ music playing so knew it was safe to head down to the patio. (it felt like Christmas, lol). Once down the steps what must we see laying on the table but this…

WOW! I guess that noise we heard the night before in the woods while we were in the hot tub was a bear!

Here’s what our breakfast looked like…

Monkey bread, how fitting!

Cereal, juice and fresh fruit – yum!

We decided to check out Seven Points Marina –

Check out ALL the boats! This is truly boat country. From marinas to storage to boat launches, everywhere you look there are boats. In all our travels to ‘water’ places, we have never seen so many boats.

And look what was on display!

So there ya have it! Bears ARE here, lol.

Oh well, what can we do? We head over to Lake Raystown Resort and have lunch. It’s another beautiful day. If you look just right of the center, all the way at the top, our treehouse is beside the house with all the windows. Pretty cool view –

The fish are biting today, ha!

After a few hours on the lake, we head back to Junglewood. Upon our arrival, the owner approaches us and asked if we ‘got the note this morning?’. Of course we say we did and he goes on to share that the Game Commissioner had just left. Basically the bear was right around our treehouse while we slept in that morning. It’s a 400 lb. black bear they have named “Boston”. He has been coming each morning and evening and the owner was actually ok with it. He explained that Boston mainly keeps other bears away. Unfortunately the neighbors aren’t so happy and want him taken care of. There was talk of putting a trap out to catch him and if we didn’t see him that evening they were fearful that was what had happened. 😦

We cooked on the grill early, very aware of our surroundings, chilled out in the hot tub but no sign of “Boston”. Even the next morning our breakfast was safe: No Boston.

Since it was Father’s Day…this was stuck in our coffee cake –


After another wonderful breakfast and just enjoying the resort

we headed home. It was a wonderful weekend and I’m sure another visit is in our future!

If any of you ever get the chance, check this place out….you can’t go wrong. We promise.
