Kemble Inn | Table Six Restaurant

Craving some “me” time? Want to treat your spouse/significant other to a romantic getaway? Then it’s time to discover a historic place that USA Today named the “Best Northeastern Small Town.” Take a drive to Lenox, Massachusetts and enjoy relaxed elegance at the Kemble Inn. Think Champagne in blue jeans. While Bev is busy and in “camp-mode” at her full-time job, I took my hubby for a little R&R…

The Bakehouse of Litchfield

Within Litchfield’s recently renovated jailhouse, you’ll find The Bakehouse, a lovely cell filled with the best of baked goods! Being that one of our mission statements is to try every bakery in CT, we stopped by, did a thorough taste-testing, and got the low-down. Read on…and because scratch and sniff websites still haven’t been invented, imagine the smell of fresh, baked pastries as you do so.

Whip Salon

We got whipped at WHIP Salon! We also got pampered, treated like queens, scalp massaged, blown out, and left feeling marvelous! But not before we had a chat with business owner and visionary, Amy Pal. If this was posting on a Wednesday, she’d be our #WCW…

CORE Running Group

When Valerie Walsh, Personal Trainer at Phys-Ed in New Milford and creator of CORE Running Group, asked us to join her for a running session, we said “Ok, but we don’t run.” Not so fast, said Valerie, who then set out to teach us that with the right training and support, most anyone (even us) can enjoy the running obsession! We learned some great tips for those thinking of starting (or getting back to) running. Let us share.

Three Roots Education

If you’ve been following along on our adventures for a while, you’ll know that we love a good class! When those classes are local, are creative and about sustainability, we’re especially into it! As a self-proclaimed millennial (the future looks bright!), we had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Shannon Carey, founder of Three Roots Education. We learned about her business and vision, while learning to make sauerkraut, natural watercolor paint, and grow vegetables! Classes are held in Ridgefield (and beyond) for all ages – toddlers to adults. 

The Hidden Acorn

Today’s Unlocking adventure brings us to a Litchfield County, off-the-beaten-track gem, The Hidden Acorn. What is it, you ask? It’s part retail store; refurbished, refinished, and restored furniture, as well as home goods and part art studio. We love nothing more than a bit of shopping and a bit of hands-on at a workshop. Here’s our crafty afternoon at The Hidden Acorn in Woodbury!
