If you’re tired of shoveling snow, whining kids or your annoying boss, it’s probably time to plan a Girlfriends Getaway at Alpine Hideaway Cottages! Spend some adult time with your best friends doing what girls do best–shopping, eating and drinking, going to the spa and maybe taking in a chick flick. Here’s a sample itinerary we think you’ll love:
Your first day, arrive at Alpine Cottage Hideaway, kick off your shoes and unwind!
Take a cat nap, spend some quiet time reading or pondering life, or get a good laugh catching up with the girls. You never know when you’ll be able to relax like this again!
Then treat yourself to some fine dining at the nearby Osceola Mill. The menu as a continental flare and features seasonal foods, from steak and seafood to fresh vegetables and homemade desserts. Pair your meal with a fine wine or brew and gab to your heart’s content.
Now that you are full and mellow, head back to your cottage for a girls’ movie night! Ask ahead and we will make sure to provide you with a specific selection of videos, or browse our extensive collection in each cottage. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry…and all with your closest buds. When you’re sapped out, slink into your cozy bed for an undisturbed night’s sleep in the peaceful Shenandoah Mountains. Sweet Dreams!
On your second day, you will awake refreshed and ready for a full day of fun!
Start things out right with a breakfast basket delivered right to your cabin by your host, Eileen. Nutritious yogurt, muffins, granola and juices will satisfy your tongue and your tummy all morning long.
Then get ready to head to Lexington for a day of shopping and pampering! First, hit Spa 215 for a mani/pedi, facial, massage, makeup application or a new ‘do! Chat with your friends while your stylist brings out the best in you. After this luxurious jaunt, head to the many shops in downtown Lexington, from antique retailers to farmers markets to galleries. Even the most discerning shopper will find something truly unique to bring home as a memory of her Girlfriends Getaway!
Getting hungry…? Try a quick pit-stop at Sweet Treats Bakery, which offers a tasty selection of deli-style soups and sandwiches for a very reasonable price. Then it’s back to shopping for the rest of the afternoon. Go get ’em, girls!
Once you are literally ready to ‘drop,’ it’s time to plop yourselves in a chair for a relaxing dinner and a round of drinks. Check out Brix, a contemporary tapas and wine bar, at 4 East Washington Street. You and your friends can choose from a tempting menu of Pan-Mediterranean small plates and a great selection of vino in a warm, casual atmosphere. You’ll feel right at home with the friendly wait staff, owner and chef.
Ready to hit the streets again? How about a little musical entertainment? Finish off your night with some live music at Mockingbird. This local spot showcases artisan and roots entertainment, with performances Wednesday through Saturday nights. Meet someone, latch onto a new band or just enjoy the scenery.
Of course after a day like this, you will welcome the sight of your bed at Alpine Hideaway Cottages once more. We are sure you’ll doze off to memories of your girlfriends getaway…
We hope you will consider Alpine Hideaway for your Girlfriends Getaway!
