Never-ending Summer Rental – Via Houseboat Magazine

What started with a simple “yes!” from my sister-in-law to a marriage proposal resulted in a relaxing weekend for my own bride and me aboard a delightful rental houseboat in boat-friendly Bradenton, Fla.

When we learned that Maria’s little sis was to be married in an al fresco Pass-A-Grille, Fla., beach ceremony, we started looking for a place to stay nearby for the St. Petersburg-area nuptials. Involving a five-state, 15-hour, thousand-mile drive each way from our Ohio home to our favorite spring break destination state, we wanted to extend our stay and enjoy a mini break from work.

We Had Great Service – At The Manatee Riverhouse

From the initial meeting to the end of the event, we had great service! Cindi (the event manager), was very accommodating and helpful during the event. She helped us set up the room with the flowers and centerpieces, she was a great help with the Audio Visual. My attendees were extremely impressed with the venue and the food was out of this world! Everyone had great things to say!
