Our Stay At The Inn At Crestwood

On the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving, Ian and I headed up to the mountains of Boone, NC with our girls and ... dropped them off at my mother-in-law's house.

We had a PARENTS NIGHT OUT complete with a resort stay! Praise hands! Sleep til 8am!


This all came about because I was perusing Groupon (which I way underuse) and saw that a local resort called The Inn At Crestwood a matter of minutes from their home was running a pretty good deal. For $90 the week of Thanksgiving, we got a night away from it all.

Let me be very clear and say that this is no Grand Bohemian or Grove Park Inn, and (if I can be super frank) we probably wouldn't stay there again. The lobby was cute but the rest of the resort was rather outdated and we got the impression they were on Groupon for a reason.

BUT.

We got to treat ourselves to a parents night out!

We drove into nearby Blowing Rock, sat together at the bar at Blowing Rock Ale House and ended up chatting with the man himself who makes the beer (fascinating!) and then mozied over to Storie Street Grill for a really delicious dinner! I had the Horseradish Salmon which was divine.


And we woke up to a quiet hotel room!!!!


Breakfast the next morning was continental-style but they diddddd have a Belgian waffle maker so I was a pig in mud.



By check-out time, we felt ready to head to the house to see the kids and get ready for the arrival of five more family members for a good Thanksgiving. It was a really nice way to enjoy a quiet night out, a free babysitter (THANK YOU to my MIL!) and an easy morning!
