escapeLast Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary (insert happy dance). We counted ourselves lucky that he’s actually around for this event that we wanted to go out of our way to plan a romantic weekend getaway. 

I found this great deal on a Bed & Breakfast stay for the Hillbrook Inn in West Virginia that includes a spa and dinner credit.

Why not?!

We’ve never been to a B&B before and I’ve been wanting to check it out for awhile now. This particular B&B is only about a two hour drive, so it worked out to make an overnight stay out of it.  Luckily, the traffic to West Virginia was great! We got there under two hours and right on time with check in.

When we got there, we were greeted with a welcome drink and toured the home with two other couples. After our guide left us, we went into our room, which was located in the second story on its own. Our dinner was scheduled for 6pm, so we had a couple of hours to kill.

Before dinner, we just stayed in our room and walked around the property — and what a beautiful property it is! After our delicious dinner, we were exhausted from our relaxing day we went to bed (plus, I wanted to make sure I was up and at ’em for the delicious breakfast. Besides, that day was our actual anniversary day and had a couple’s massage scheduled in the afternoon.

I was so sad to leave and get back to reality. My husband even commented on how it felt like we did absolutely nothing — but I didn’t mind. The quiet and relaxation was what we needed — sometimes you need to do absolutely nothing!

And honestly, I’m already trying to plan our next B&B stay!
