Tips for Homeowners: 5 Ways to Keep Your Guest Entertained

Although many people who visit the lake spend time boating and in the outdoors, there’s always those times when the weather doesn’t cooperate or guests need a break from the hot summer sun.  A great way to keep guests happy and entertained is to have fun things to do indoor.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

  1. DVD Collection:  You don’t have to go out and buy the newest releases, but keep a collection of kids movies and maybe some classics for adults.  Family movies are a great option for the whole family to watch.  Find DVDs for less on Amazon.com or eBay.
  2. A Kids Collection: Board games, crayons and coloring books, and assorted card games are great for kids!!  Some of the best vacation memories are spent competing in a friendly game of Go Fish or Chutes and Ladders (remember that game?).  Believe us,  parents will thank you!
  3. Books:  A small book collection of poetry, illustrated books for little ones, or coffee table books of scenic nature scenes are great choices to keep on hand.  Have a variety so guests will bound to find something interesting.
  4. Listening Pleasure:  Do you have a stereo system?  With everyone having iPods and other audio devices, it’s a good idea to have a cord that will hook up to the stereo system.
  5. Outside Options:  Don’t forget the outside areas!  Add some fun yard games like washers, bean bag toss, or horseshoes. Your guests will love it!! The result — happier guests and return renters!
