One of my favorite spots when we visited Rockport was the little harbor. The views were gorgeous, and apparently this red building is one of the most photographed spots in the United States! I realized I didn’t share all the pictures here, so wanted to share a couple more today!
If you’re looking for the perfect romantic getaway, then look no further than Hotel Domestique, nestled in Travelers Rest and tucked right between Greenville, SC and Asheville, NC. Scofield and I recently took a trip to visit this gorgeous hotel for a little pre-thanksgiving vacation, and had the most lovely time. I’ve never been to Europe, but we got a little taste of the European countryside with the gorgeous views of the mountains, old vineyard, and beautiful reflection pool. It was the most perfect setting to sit and drink our coffee in the morning, eat breakfast, read a book, or sip a glass of wine in the evenings and just talk.
I was so impressed by the attention to detail and level of care we experienced by being guests at Hotel Domestique. And it’s no surprise, considering the hotel was founded by cyclist George Hincapie to capture the unforgettable hospitality, cuisine, and rest he experienced during his travels abroad. The hotel offers a complimentary european continental breakfast, a gorgeous saltwater pool (perfect for the summer), a delicious restaurant in-house (but also open to the public) called Restaurant 17, and complimentary wine, water bottles, snacks and coffee at any time of day. My favorite part was their turn down service where they would dim the lights, shut the blinds, light a fire in your room and leave robes and dessert out for when you returned from dinner. Dreamy, right!? The hotel was so lovely that we didn’t want to leave.
But, if you’re looking for some extra adventure, Hotel Domestique is located right next door to many delicious restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries in both Greenville, Traveler’s Rest, or Asheville. There’s also hiking trails and biking trails nearby, and the hotel rents bikes to guests to use during your stay.
The amount of things on my to-do list daily seem endless at times, so I’m always looking for ways to make life a little easier and to give me more free time with my family. That’s why I’m so excited to have discovered Shipt and all they have to offer. Shipt is an on demand grocery delivery service that started in Alabama, but is now serving more than 50 cities, including Greenville! You simply download the app or go online, and you can pick the store you want to shop at, then you place your order online. When you checkout, you pick what time you would like your groceries to arrive a Shipt employee brings them right to your door! Amazing, right!?
I love that you can see the total before you pay, allowing you to add or remove things from your cart if needed. We have a pretty strict grocery budget, but I struggle to stay in budget in the store, so using Shipt has really helped keep me on track.
