The Windham Hill Inn
in Southern Vermont
is one of the most charming inns I’ve come across. Set amongst the rolling hills of the Green Mountains, the Inn enjoys spectacular undisturbed views down the West River Valley. In addition to the 160 acres of property, meadows and woodlands, their grounds include a network of hiking and skiing trails, a heated swimming pool, tennis court, gardens and many places to lounge and relax in the main house and the nearby barn, which has been renovated. Below is one of the lounge areas in the main house and yes, the black bear is as big as he looks.
Traditionally decorated in true New England style, it’s as if you travel back in time as you meander from one room to the next.
As they say, it’s all in the details and the team at Windham Hill Inn have mastered it.
The Inn is part of the exclusive Relais & Châteaux collection, which as luxury travel buffs know, is a directory of the finest hotels and gourmet restaurants in the world. It…

Half Moon Bay along the coast of northern California roughly an hour or less drive from San Francisco is a perfect place to spend a romantic weekend, or a solo weekend if you just want to get away for some rest and relaxation. Inside the Ritz Carlton along the ocean’s edge sits a luxurious 16,000 square feet spa, which is adjacent to the hotel’s Cybex gym, cafe and gift shop.
Inside the spa, they have a host of traditional spa services that range from facials and massages to pedicures, however what’s uniquely worth noting is their co-ed romantic jacuzzi in the middle of the men’s and women’s lockers rooms.
Facials include a half moon bay pumpkin facial, a deep cleansing organic renewal, a calming facial, an age regression facial, a luminous body facial and the one I opted for, which was a Transformational Facial, which includes a lot of anti-aging products.

Their anti-aging products come from…
