I've never written a review before, but then again, I've never had a 40th anniversary before either...until two weeks ago. My husband knows me well after 40yrs of marriage, but I didn't know how well until he surprised me with a week long stay at the Westglow Spa in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.
He must have been listening all these years after all---I felt like I had stepped back in time--a better time! Our week long stay was one of the most relaxing weeks I can honestly ever remember having!
From the time we were picked up at the airport by the most personable fellow, Rusty, I felt this trip was going to be extra special. He regaled us of so many interesting tidbits about Blowing Rock and Westglow's fascinating history.
When we pulled up in front of this beautiful Mansion on the top of this winding mountain, my jaw literally dropped.
From the moment my husband and I stepped foot inside I knew we were going to have an incomparable experience. We were not disappointed. Our room , #16 was of the most exquisite taste. The beautiful fabrics, the maze of fluffy pillows on our opulent bed--the claw foot tub; I was in heaven!! Only my husband would have known how much I would have appreciated these kinds of luxuries.
I didn't want to leave the room and wouldn't have were there not such beautiful galleries to sit out on complete with roomy rocking chairs that allowed me to finish a long book I had been wanting to read....My husband really did his homework!
We took our breakfasts out on the most lovely portico and once again...first class service and the most amazing orange eggs! They told me, 'that's how they grow them up here!'
Dinner's at Rowlands, which is also on the premises was an experience in itself. During our weeks stay, I'm sure my husband and I sampled everything. Wonderful food and we loved the ambiance.
Their wellness spa was lovely. We aren't really the exercise machine type, but we did relish our time in their very large heated pool. I also enjoy a relaxing facial with a darling girl named Myra. She was so personable, as were all of the staff we were in contact with.
If I had one complaint it would be that they had been having a warming trend and the leaves had not turned yet...that was disappointing...I wanted to blame my husband...but, well....
