We choose bed and breakfasts for uniqueness, cool history vibes, luxury touches, and appealing Instagram accounts; and not necessarily in that order. Fitch House B&B checked all our boxes and then some. Need a peaceful getaway? Read on.

The Homestead in Madison is a home away from home (if your home is a stunning mansion on the CT coastline). If you don’t have the time or resources to make it to Santorini or Bora Bora this year, do as we do and book a one-night luxury getaway in your own backyard (or state!). You’ll actually be saving money. ūüėČ

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…

In New Milford, next to The Silo, you will find Finnegan’s Farm, West.

And on that farm, there is a yurt!

After our recent mini-vacay where we stayed at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston, we may have returned home just a tiny bit more ‚Äúprincess-y‚ÄĚ than when we left.¬†Sorry, husbands. We were treated like royalty (such is the Ritz-Carlton way!) and could have cried when it came time to leave. Here’s our whirlwind mid-week Ritz-Carlton, Boston experience! #RCMemories #Suitelife

Hotel Hi-Ho is a Fairfield, CT landmark located right next to the Merritt Parkway since 1960. Once a motel, the new and improved (and recently restored from top to bottom) Hotel Hi-Ho is now a “smart” hotel and one of the first in CT to offer guests a completely virtual customer service¬†experience.¬†

Finally, another getaway post! Our last trip was to Scotland and Iceland, so the next place to visit would be Hartford, CT. Naturally! Yep, it was time for us to give our state capital some love and treat ourselves to a little daycation + hotel stay. We decided on The Goodwin Hotel in downtown Hartford, which is pretty much close to everything.

Freshly renovated with a new lease on life, we wanted to check out this iconic hotel. As part of RMS Companies (see our Hotel Zero Degrees feature too!), we knew we would be in for a chic treat. Come, we’ll show you all the bits we loved!

In less than two days, we managed to unlock “the tip of the Iceland iceberg,” i.e. Reykjav√≠k and the surrounding area. Nevertheless, check out what we were able to fit into 46 hours! Consider this our Iceland 101 and we can’t WAIT to go back and bring you Iceland 102! We’ve got; how to get there, where to stay, where to shop, where to eat, and the Golden Circle tour covered.
