My wife and I had the opportunity to relax and unwind this past weekend at a historic Cache Valley location. Needless to say it was much needed. She has been working 50+ hour weeks for the past three weeks, is six weeks away from giving birth to our first child…and we just needed some time to unwind.
Our destination was the historic Providence Inn Bed & Breakfast. The building itself is nearly 100 years old. Trees surround the three-story estate and with fall here the orange, yellow, and red of the leaves just added to the historic beauty.
Once inside you get a glimpse of the history. The floors have that creaky sound of years of use and stories. The receptionist staff was great and got us checked-in in a jiffy. We even got a couple of freshly made chocolate chip cookies.
Our room was awesome. We stayed in the Presidential Suite on the second floor with views to the south. Once in we kicked on the gas fireplace, threw down our luggage, and checked out the jacuzzi tub, the enormous shower, and the master bed. The closest for the room is cedar-lined and overall the room is just awesome.
The bed was very comfortable and once we were ready to sleep for the night, it was a great night of sleep. At 8:15 am we told the receptionist we wanted a call so we could order our breakfast and have it brought up at 8:30. Yep…breakfast brought to door. I went and got it, brought it to bed, and we chowed down. My wife had a stellar omelette (I don’t remember what all was in it but it was great) and I had traditional french toast with eggs and I’m pretty sure the salsa was homemade.
We’ve stayed at a few other B&B’s and this one by far takes the cake. It was close to home but quiet enough that it was nice and relaxing. After we checked-out, we got a tour of the different rooms. Next time we go to the Providence Inn Bed & Breakfast we’re definitely going to stay in the Grand Canyon Suite…the tub was enormous!
All I can say it was worth it to get a way for the weekend, relax with my beautiful wife, and not have to worry about cleaning up breakfast.
