After a wonderful stay at rugged Evergreen Lodge, we drove 15 minutes down the road to Rush Creek Lodge, a recently-built in 2016 lodge offering amazing amenities and comforts. The bros immediately felt at home with an oversized and well-equipped Game Room, offering an indoor playground, shuffleboard, a pool table and several other forms of entertainment. Across the way, the gorgeous guest lounge had a roaring fireplace, beautiful decor and an Activities Center with staff offering resources at the Lodge and in Yosemite.
We had a wonderful first exposure to Yosemite National Park while staying at Evergreen Lodge, located in a remote, wooded-wonderland not far from the northwest entrance of the park. We had just driven from San Francisco as we went up and down windy, lush roads and Evergreen Lodge impressed us as soon as we arrived.
We made spring break plans to head to the mountains and explore a new to us national park, Yosemite National Park. To fly into Yosemite, one of the best options is to fly to San Francisco from the east coast. We decided to make the best usage of our time there and spend two half days exploring Fog City. The first step was finding a Good Hotel® and I was thrilled to discover Hotel Spero, a downtown boutique hotel offering comfortable accommodations and a great launching pad.
Every now again, the chess pieces are put into place for Logan and I to score a weekend without our bros. Thanks to my awesome parents, this past weekend we chose to take the easy drive to nearby Chattanooga, Tennessee, a city located just under four hours from Greenville, South Carolina. Of course we chose to partner with a Good Hotel® and Read House Hotel exceeded our expectations.
For the last several years, Logan and I have used the Chase Sapphire credit card, a card that we put the majority of our purchases on to gain points. However, bad habits die hard and while I could have reaped the travel benefits from the card, it was easy for me to cash in those points for Amazon purchases instead. In fact, since I can remember, I have checked the “Points toward Amazon Purchases” box, feeling like my Amazon purchases were “free”. While the Chase Sapphire Preferred card does offer many travel benefits, I never used them as I should. Fast-forward to 2022.
is past weekend we decided on a whim to head to the Burlington, North Carolina area, a suburb of Raleigh, to pickup a trailer for my husband’s truck. When we decided to head that way, I realized that a Good Hotel® was located nearby and so we made a night of it! Below is our personal review of being hosted by The Umstead Resort, a luxury hotel with a Woodlands feel in Cary, North Carolina.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (But no really, what a magical time to visit Boise, Idaho!) We landed in the Boise airport watching snow flurries fall and we were immediately expectant of our upcoming snowy adventure. The bros were smitten walking around downtown Boise, making snowfalls out of snow that had fallen earlier. They brought along one of their favorite winter toys, snowball makers, and spent hours engaging in snowfall fights. December was truly a magical time to visit both Boise and McCall, Idaho.
These are a few of our favorite things! There isn’t much more that we love more than living only two hours from a day full of skiing and snowboarding. The bros own their own equipment and Logan and Landon especially can shred it up on the slopes! I am somewhere between keeping Griffin alive on […]
#hosted The Resort It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Now it really feels like Christmas after a weekend stay at good hotel, Chetola Resort. A visit to Chetola Resort, located in Blowing Rock, NC, has been on my list for over a year and I was so excited to bring the family along […]
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…and for the first time in 18 years, this is actually possible! We are loving the lower temperatures in the Upstate of SC this Christmas season as we experience our first Christmas and winter on the farm. I’ve formed a list of our favorite Christmas activities and we can’t wait […]
And just like that…it’s Turkey time again! We just love our annual visit to New Jersey to be with our cousins, siblings and grandparents for Thanksgiving. This weekend every year is filled with the same traditions: a Christmas Secret Santa Exchange with cousins on Thanksgiving evening, Jeopardy with Grammy & Pop, Braddock’s Tavern for a sibling meal and wonderful time together.
After moving from Florida and longing for the fall season, I have officially fallen for fall in Greenville, SC! There are an overwhelming list of resources of things families can enjoy in the fall season here, so I wanted to create a running list for the activities that we experience in person. My favorite scripture […]
