I'm a very busy single Mom of 2 children. My daughter is 15 and son is 10. Aside from work, school, social obligations, money issues, family and friends, and a home to care for on top of it all, sometimes life just gets a little too overwhelming. One such Friday afternoon I had just had enough. Without the funding for a full fledged vacation I decided to splurge on a nights stay at the Mainstay in Alcoa TN not 10 minutes from our home. Just walking in the front door felt like a million miles away. The lobby was such a peaceful beginning to a lovely night. The staff greeted us with a smile and found us a lovely suite for the night. It was very neat and clean and beautifully decorated! Immediately everyone claimed their "spot" for the night and changed for a dunk in the pool. Even as the staff passed by they each had a "hello" or a "ya'll need anything?' It was so pleasant to be cared in such a simple way. For dinner we enjoyed the short walk to the local restaurant ate fast and hurried back to the room where we enjoyed time together without the stress of the outside world. For that one night we were alone on our own little resort island far away from everyday world. We slept like babies and woke refreshed. The breakfast bar was such a treat and the children got a kick out of making their own fresh waffles.
Another dip in the pool and we reluctantly made the trek back to the real world.
Thank you Mainstay for giving us a lovely memory of the vacation we took in our own back yard.
