College Visit

Our daughters had their Defiance College Volleyball banquet here last year and we decided this season that we had to stay here one night. We wanted to stay two nights but senior weekend was the same as Halloween this year.  So we came for Friday night and had the team of a breakfast on Saturday morning. We had a relaxing Friday.. did a little shopping… guys played pool and hung out on the deck. Thanks for a memorable weekend!

Perfect for a Family Gathering

Our large, generational family gathered to celebrate the life of a loved one that passed away too soon.  This was the perfect spot for us to get together and spend lots of time laughing, crying, and remembering. The Second Story made such a difference in the time we got to spend together and our start of healing. We hope we can make this our gathering spot for years to come. Thanks so much for what made our lives a little more bearable this weekend.

Wedding Weekend

We rented the Second Story for our wedding weekend.  The rehearsal dinner was beautiful up here and the bridesmaids enjoyed Friday night dancing and having girl time. Saturday the girls got ready here listening to music and preparing for the BIG day.  Our wedding day was so beautiful  and PERFECT.  That night we came back to the Second Story as the new Mr. and Mrs. Hughes!  We LOVE the Second Story and can’t wait to continue to come here for events.  THANK YOU SYLVIA for EVERYTHING!
