I had dreams of sitting on the beach in Maine and sipping cold drinks. But it poured the weekend we got to go away. I’m not a big fan of driving hours in the pouring rain and I had seen a brochure for this quaint boutique hotel in Rowley, MA. So we headed to the Country Gardens Inn and Spa in Rowley, 45 minutes from Lowell, off 495.
We stayed in one of the Country Collection Suites. The suite was beautiful with cathedral ceilings, a hot tub and gas fireplace in our room. This was perfect for a cold, damp rainy day. You could even watch the tv from the comfort of the hot tub.
To complete our vacation we rented some Redbox movies we watched in the room. Then got all dressed up and went to Royal Orchid Thai for dinner. They have really good vegetarian dishes!
After checking out, we went to Village Pancake House and got the most amazing omelets and hash browns.We then headed home to our boys.
Refreshed and ready to be parents again!
