We stayed in a great location called Mariport right outside of Pepin, WI. Pepin is where Laura Ingalls Wilder was born and there are references all over town referring to her. Jeremy and I drove to the actual site where she was born which is a couple of miles out of town. The site is right off the road and there is a cabin there. The cabin isn't the actual cabin where she was born, but I guess it is a good representation. (???) I think Little House in the Big Woods took place in Pepin. If I'm wrong, somebody please correct me. As we were driving up to the site I can see how a little girl would think that the woods were big! There were many, many trees. (This photos was taken from my phone)
As a little girl I read all of the Little House books and I also watched all of the tv shows. I still love all of the stories. I want to go to the Guthrie to see the musical which I is guess is really good. Melissa Gilbert is playing ma.
The accommodations at Mariport were beautiful! I will end this post with a couple of photos from our "cabins." The first two shots are from the only day that it rained. I think that was the only time when there weren't any people in the pool!
