Chateau Elan

This weekend, Matt and I got to get away to the Chateau Elan!  It was only a 45 minute drive, but felt like such an escape.  We relaxed, laid by the pool, went on lots of walks, read, saw three weddings, and just enjoyed our little vacation!


Our room 

 View from our room

Yay! So fancy! 

 We both wish we could wake up to this breakfast every morning!

 Morning walk

One of the houses we passed on our walk- huge! 

In front of the vineyard

 Walking through the vineyard

Clearly not picking season- but still neat to see! 

The last part of our walk- so pretty!

...probably should have waited til we were in normal clothes to take this- could have been a framer! ha!

 The wine tour guy who explained the wines we were tasting after the tour

One of the weddings we watched... the bride walked down to The Circle of Life?! Yes with the jungle-theme opening included- Matt and I looked at each other right when it started and then caught ourselves and pretended like it was completely normal. haha 

 Dinner one of the nights

Matt's still talking about his steak. He had Beef Wellington- I might have to learn how to make that. :) 

Matt surprised me at breakfast our second morning with a massage!!!  Right when we sat down, he pulled the certificate out with a big grin on his face- so sweet! I was thinking it would be really nice to get one, but didn't want to say anything- I really didn't even hint at it!... turns out he planned to surprise me all along- what a treat! :)

 About to go on our day-two walk. :)

Matt got to have access to the whole spa area while I got my massage. It was so nice in there! This picture below is hilarious (the robe looks like a kimono!) but it gives you a good view of the view, ha... Matt hung out in the hot tub while I got my massage.

The "spa valet" (well well!) took us back to the main lobby in my favorite car! Wish the ride was longer.  :)
