Isn’t it funny how when you’re all over each other being lovey dovey newly weds, people will tell you to “get a room” all the time. But the times that YOU REALLY NEED TO GET A ROOM, are when you’re bugging the crap out of each other and flirting with the idea of divorce(hopefully you can solve the problem before it reaches that point). I have found that if we let the grind of the day to day get in the way, it won’t take long before we forget how to be lovers. Taking time out for each other is vital to a healthy marriage. I can’t stress it enough that it is important to take the time to do this as often as you can afford…we’re hoping to be able to “get a room” every 3 or 4 months some time in the near future, but that also means finding someone that is willing to watch the kids overnight just as often…which could be tough!
There is something so calming and healing about taking a nice long soak together in a big tub. That’s the #1 thing I look for when looking for a room. It has to have a nice big tub so that I can just sit and soak the stress away. The #2 thing that I look for in a room is seclusion. I prefer a cabin/private accommodations to an actual hotel room. I would seriously be a hermit if my husband would let me (I’m not kidding…I’m that introverted that living in the woods sounds very appealing to me). The #3 thing that I look for is cleanliness. If a room is dirty looking or I feel like I’m going to get a disease just sleeping in the bed or using the bathroom, the experience will not be therapeutic in the least.
*Remember, getting a room is cheaper than getting a divorce (plus, it’s easier on everyone involved).*
Keep reading if you’d like to see my favorite place, so far, to get a room. It meets all three of my criteria, is reasonably priced considering your awesome accommodations, and they have super delicious breakfast included that is well balanced and enough food that you don’t feel like you’re going to need to eat again an hour later.
My favorite place to stay is Ada Cottage, which is one of the rooms available at Seven Wives Inn in St. George, Utah. It’s a quaint little cottage all on its own (I estimate it to be around 400 square feet, though I may be a little off). It has a California King sized bed, Huge CLEAN jetted tub, a kitchenette, a dining table, and a sofa/entertainment area (wifi is also available). This last trip was our second time staying there and we plan on continuing to be repeat customers.
