Herrington Vacation

I don’t know why we make the mistake of making reservations for ONLY one night.  We always ask to extend our stay, and they are always booked…  and I know why!!!  What a great boutique hotel.  Beautiful rooms, views of the river, and right in the heart of a small quaint town.

The room service is excellent.  The bed is SO comfortable.  The turndown service includes two freshly made chocolate chip cookies and mini-milk-jars of milk…  along with comfy slippers and cozy robes.

The spa will bring up a variety of bath therapy kits.  I usually get the serenity kit.  Relaxing oils, bath fizz, facial mask, body scrub, and lotions.  The bathrooms are AMAZING.  Huge jet/whirlpool tubs, heated marble/tile floors, great shower.

This is a great weekend getaway spot.  I recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, and relaxing vacation.
