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 Cranwell Spa & Resort in Lenox, MA, has a very regal, castled, fit-for-royalty vibe to it, which is exactly why it was the perfect spot for Lora’s bachelorette weekend.

Besides an award winning spa (one of the largest in the Northeast) and restaurants to suit both fine and casual dining, the resort also boasts a mansion. And who doesn’t love a good mansion?! The Wyndhurst was built in 1894 by John Sloane (a relative of the Vanderbilts) as a “cottage.” In those days (the Gilded Age) the “cottage era” defined cottages as a secondary residence with a minimum of 30 rooms and 20 acres. Can you even imagine?!

In attendance for Lora’s “bachelorette weekend!!!” were the two of us, Lora’s younger sister, Holly, plus our friend, the fabulous, the entertaining, Kimberley Locke!

A quick hour or so drive up Route 7 to Lenox, MA, and we were there, ready to do bachelorette things, whatever they would be…

Boston! The next natural city to visit for a quick getaway, and quick it was – 46.5 hours to be exact! When time is limited it’s best to find yourself a lovely hotel to stay in that’s both relaxing and right in the middle of it all. Lora, the travel planning ninja, found Nine Zero. Location, location, location.
