Leaf Peeping at The Omni Mount Washington Resort

 

A special thank you to the Omni Mount Washington for having us.

At the end of September Joe and I were so blessed to have the opportunity to stay at The Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire! After a long 9 hour drive, we were greeted with the most beautiful fall foliage surrounding the infamous red roof resort; I could not believe that the leaves had reached their peak just in time for our arrival!! We eagerly jumped out of our car and hopped on the brand new gondola and headed up the mountain to check out the Rosebrook Lodge that had just opened. The views were out of this world!




After getting settled into our room, we freshened up and headed down to the newly renovated main dining room for dinner. The space was so elegant, yet cozy at the same time and the food was absolutely delicious! *I also just wanted to note here that the resort took all of the proper precautions for COVID. They implemented social distancing, required masks when social distancing was not possible and had excellent cleaning services. We felt very safe during our stay.





The next morning we started off our day with breakfast in the main dining room which included the most stunning view of the foliage covered mountains! 





Later in the afternoon we headed over to the stables to get ready for some horseback riding! I had never rode on a horse before so I was a little nervous about it but the horses were so friendly and riding was actually a breeze! The guided trail ride took us through the woods which made for some awesome leaf peeping. I would love to revisit the resort in the winter time for a horse drawn carriage ride through the snow!





We decided to have dinner at Stickney's Steak and Chop Pub that evening. We were seated by the fireplace which made for such an intimate and cozy environment. We both got burgers and they were truly scrumptious.




We spent the majority of our last day at the resort sipping coffee and wine on the grand porch while taking in all of the beautiful scenery. We had such a lovely trip and can't wait to revisit this incredible place again someday!




A special thank you again to The Omni Mount Washington Resort for having us.

Exploring Chatham.

 


Today I wanted to talk about the second day of our Cape Cod trip- Chatham! If you missed my day one post about visiting Nantucket you can check that out here.

We started our day in Chatham by visiting the infamous Chatham Bars Inn! All I can say is WOW! This waterfront resort was absolutely stunning and had the most beautiful hydrangeas I had ever seen all around the property. I would love to stay at this gorgeous place someday.

After exploring CBI for a while, we headed downtown for a little shopping. Downtown Chatham was so cute and picturesque; it was my favorite town on the Cape for sure! While there, I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of a boutique I had been following on Instagram for a while, Jaks Chatham! They were so sweet and they had such a darling collection of souvenirs and clothes in their shop. If you ever find yourself on the Cape make sure to check them out! 

After some more shopping we decided to treat ourselves to some Lime Rickys from Buffys Ice Cream to cool off from the summer heat. We spent the rest of the day checking out lighthouses near Chatham which was nice and relaxing after a busy day before in Nantucket!











Special thanks to the owners of Jaks Chatham for gifting me a few items from their shop!

Last night Joe and I were able to turn an ordinary Thursday into a Thursdatethanks to The Melting Pot! Every Thursday The Melting Pot offers a special 4 course menu complete with candles and rose petals on the table to help couples rekindle date night! 

It was such a treat to get dressed up and go out on a proper date night with my love; it really felt like it was Valentines Day or our anniversary! We indulged in cheese fondue, filet mignon and of course chocolate and drinks! It was perfect.

Make next Thursday a Thursdateby booking a reservation at The Melting Pot!

Hi loves! Today I wanted to share part one of my Cape Cod trip from July! This trip was so special because I went with Joe and my parents; we are all best friends and have such a good time together! When planning the trip earlier this year, we knew we wanted to visit a different part of the Cape each day we were there so we wanted to stay in a pretty central location so we decided to stay in Sandwich, MA at the cutest little mom and pop motel, The Sandwich Inn & Suites. They took every precaution possible to make our stay healthy and safe and they made us feel very comfortable (and the price was great!!). Sandwich, MA was about a 7 hour car drive for us from PA.

Sunday morning was our first full day and we woke up bright and early and headed to Hyannis to catch the 6:30 am Steamship Authority ferry to Nantucket. I want to note that I did not do my research well enough and parking was very difficult to find- luckily we found a lot near the port that wasn't too far of a walk, but I recommend that you have an idea of where to park before you get there by checking out this page. Also, please make sure to check out Steamship Authority's homepage for Covid-19 updates!

We took the traditional (and cheaper) ferry ride over to the island which was about 2 hours long. It was a long ride but it was so worth it! Just around 9 am we made it to Nantucket and we were greeted with a charming wharf full of people riding bikes to grab their morning coffee (masks on!) and lots of golden retriever pups riding in the back of Jeeps (I think I really need a puppy now!!).  

I wanted to see the Brant Point Lighthouse first thing before it got too busy so we started the short walk there from downtown while taking in all of the island life.  








After taking endless photos by the lighthouse, we headed back to the wharf to grab some iced coffee, which was much needed on the 90 degree day! We then strolled in and out of some shops downtown trying to find the perfect souvenir to take home. I found the cutest "Nantucket red" crewneck sweatshirt at the store, 3 Girls and a Dog. 

I had been dreaming of getting ice cream from the infamous Juice Bar ever since I first saw a few preppy bloggers post about it on Instagram in like 2014 so I made sure to be first in line for it at 11 am haha! Let me just say, the wait was SO worth it!! I got cake batter ice cream in a warm waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles and it was absolutely delicious! 




After ice cream, some more shopping and a quick outfit change, we decided to hop on a bus and head over to 'Sconset for lunch and more sightseeing. We ended up grabbing lunch to-go at Claudette's Sandwich Shop and oh my goodness was it scrumptious! Get the smoked turkey sandwich with the works- it will not disappoint! Following lunch, we walked down the street a little bit to the 'Sconset Bluff Walk which is a public walkaway that has the most breathtaking views of quintessential Nantucket homes with ocean views and hydrangeas galore. We practically had the path to ourselves!!










After strolling through the lovely homes in 'Sconset we decided it was time to head home. We had such an amazing day in Nantucket and I hope to be able to stay on the island some day to really get to see everything it has to offer!
