Let it Rain at Marriott’s Harbour Lake, Florida


The rain was coming down in buckets when I arrived at Marriott’s Harbour Lake, A Marriott Vacation Club Resort, in Orlando, Florida today. I was discouraged. I’m only here for three days; I didn’t want to spend one of them with nothing to do. When I checked in, though, and was handed the resort activity guide, my mood instantly changed. Their guide reads like a phone book. I  took it with me to lunch at The Patio and started planning my mini-vacation. For the next hour, I enjoyed exceptional service and delicious food. Now, the rain has gone and my week is looking brighter.

I ordered chicken tenders and cheese fries but I couldn’t decide on a sauce for the chicken. The waitress suggested that I try them all. A little shocked that that was even an option, I jumped at the chance to appease all of my taste buds. When my lunch arrived, I realized I’d ordered enough for two people. The servings were huge. The quantity was equally matched by quality and I did a decent job at polishing off both plates. Don’t judge; with food that tasty, it’s difficult to stop.

My choices for today include ice cream sundaes at the arcade, pool chair trivia at the Shipwreck Pool, mini golf at Key Lime Greens, a wine and cheese social at the Den, and Monday night football. Rather than packing everything in at once, I decided to select two options. I can’t pass up the ice cream sundaes so I’m heading in that direction shortly. Then, I’m going to attend the Wine & Cheese Social at 6 pm. Rain or shine, Marriott’s Harbour Lake is full of unique, fun activities.


I’ll be sure to take lots of photos, especially of the ice cream, and post this evening. I’m sticking with the more relaxed events today, but tomorrow will include pirate ships, water slides, mini-golf, volleyball, and water balloon toss. I like to mix it up.

    I just went to the Marriott Vacation Club Resort website. I need a vacation. That Thailand photo on the site got me. This should be my yearly Christmas gift. I’m sharing this article with my husband.

    We’ll be following you over the next few days to see what’s there.

    Have fun,

    You always find the most amazing places. We go to Orlando every year but I haven’t heard of this resort. I’m going to look into Harbour Lake now. Our trip isn’t until March but we start planning early. Thanks.
