For snow lovers, it's been a tough winter in New England, but that trend took a big shift recently. Luck would fall in our favor as 30 inches of snow dumped in Northern Vermont in 3 days, and what better place to bask in the snowy glory than the Sterling Ridge Resort . Sterling Ridge is located in Jeffersonville, VT, which is around a 3.5 hour drive from Boston, and a little bit north of Stowe. It was one of the more unique properties we've stayed at, as it features private cabins and rooms inside larger cabins. For our stay we had a 2 bedroom cabin, complete with a living area, kitchen, wood stove, and deck overlooking the resort pond. It was the perfect culmination of an authentic Vermont experience. It's no surprise that one of the main winter attractions in the area is skiing. On our first day up north we hit the slopes of Smugglers Notch Resort . This was during the height of the snowstorm and it was a ski day to remember. During the morning I m
Whenever we get the opportunity, it always feels nice to go somewhere really far away, outside of the country. Recently we made the trip to St. Lucia, which is one of the southernmost Caribbean islands. St. Lucia has a rainforest climate and is more mountainous than many of the other Caribbean islands. We stayed with the Coconut Bay Resort for 4 nights. Coconut bay is located in the Vieux Fort area of the island, which is the southern tip by the airport. The location couldn't have been better after a long flight. The resort is split into two sections—the adults-only Harmony side and a kids and family area. The Harmony side features a more intimate and private setting with 2 pools and multiple bars. The kids and family section was loaded with fun activities including a waterpark with three water slides, pool volleyball, water polo, and a lazy river—to name a few. If you're looking for a more active day, this was the place to be. We had a great time par
Yosemite national park had been our bucket list for a while, and the wedding we were attending in Napa gave us the perfect excuse to weave this into our trip out west. We made the four hour drive from the rolling hills of Napa, through the flat plains of Central CA, until we reached the Sierra Nevada mountain range. For accommodations, we stayed with the Rush Creek Lodge . The resort boasts 143 rooms, suites, and hillside villas, and is only a few miles from the entrance to the National Park. Many of the rooms feature amazing panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Our room was in the perfect location with a view of the pool area and mountains. Inside the rooms have a new, clean, luxurious feel, with upscale bathrooms. We also had a nice deck to enjoy the scenery. Outside the room amenities, the property itself features a ton of activities to enjoy while you're not in the national park. The main attraction is the outdoor heated pool and t
