Romantic Getaway

This weekend Russ took me on a surprise getaway to Calistoga .  It is near Napa and is a wine country type place, but it is a lot less busy/commercial than Napa.  It is mountainous and gorgeous.  I am in love.

We stayed at this beautiful resort, Solage.  Each room is like a little bungalow.  It had a giant, lovely bed, a fireplace and a pretty patio.










The hotel provided bicycles so we rode them to different wineries to do wine tasting.





Russ got us a little lost!















Most beautiful place ever.  I spent the whole time swooning over the landscape and beautiful fall leaves falling down around us like golden flecks of the sun.




 The hotel also had geothermal springs so after wine tasting we languished in the geothermal pool = heaven.  Then we went to a yummy dinner.  I was too busy eating to take pictures so there are none of the food, but it was delish!

Overall it was a lovely getaway!  How was your weekend?
