This past weekend we had a special getaway to the Oban Inn and it was just what the doctor ordered. 🙂 The Oban Inn is so relaxing, comforting, you feel like you’re at home… but a really clean home with people who cater to you! 🙂 I remember laying on the bed as soon as we got in to the hotel room and I looked at Rick and said “Can we just lay in bed all night?” and we did. We grabbed a appetizer in the dining area, threw on the fireplace and watched a movie …it was kind of perfect.
Waking up in the morning after sleeping until 9am for the first time in who knows how long was just another bonus to our day. We rolled out of bed and went down to to dining room for a continental breakfast of different pastries, granola, fruit, yogurt, different types of deli meats, bagels and more. I took my time and just enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. Breakfast at our house is usually a mess of Rick trying to get out the door, the kids playing, I’m trying to make lunches with the baby hanging off of me and racing out the door to get Owen off to school.
Once we finished breakfast we went to the Oban Inn’s house spa OSpa for our couples massage. They were very accommodating to that fact that I was pregnant and it was so incredibly relaxing!!! Knowing myself I could have stayed in the spa all day getting my nails done and a facial… anything to keep me there 😉 BUT this was our little getaway and we ventured out to the main strip which was only a block away from where we were staying and that was just as fun.
Between Ricks beer tastings and me playing in the leaves we went in to many of the shops and stopped for lunch. Theres so much to see and do in Niagara on the Lake even if you can’t partake in the wine and beer flights, there is the theatre on the main street, food tastings, guided tours and so much more.
While we were at the Oban Inn I was taking videos over my Instagram Stories and it was amazing to see how many of my friends had been to the Oban Inn. All of their comments were “I love that place” “The Oban Inn is amazing!” “I went there when I was pregnant too. So relaxing!” Clearly this is a place we need to come back to more often.
It was a special weekend away and although we missed our little ones I think they were having just as much fun at home with grandma. Rick and I try to take time away even if its for a weekend to reconnect and recenter and this was the perfect place to do that.
Thank you to the Oban Inn for hosting us this weekend, your hospitality was second to none!
