After a long Friday at work, we drove just 30 miles South down Route 28 to find a gorgeous 200 acre property with an early 1900s mountain stone mansion turned into an upscale lounge and restaurant with an attached 22 room inn and spa. We arrived around 8pm and had a 5 star meal with Chef Kenneth Hughes in The Manor House Restaurant before heading to bed for our early morning spa appointments.
Even though the Inn was booked full on Friday night, I was one of the early risers on Saturday morning. I actually was able to spend about an hour alone reading the paper (when's the last time you did that?) and enjoying a hot cup of coffee while looking out over the picturesque fall foliage.
After the services, I was offered to spend a few minutes relaxing in the hot tub or sauna before meeting Melissa, the spa director, for my manicure and pedicure - served with a glass of chilled white wine!
You can stay connected with The Poplar Springs Inn on Facebook or spend a day at their Wellness Retreat on November 15th. Thank you to Melissa and The Poplar Springs Inn team for inviting us out to spend a wonderful weekend getaway with them!
