Relaxing and Romantic Getaway at Cedar Crest Lodge.

Hello everyone! Hope you had wonderful week… Mine was kinda busy, but very productive!

Anyway, few days ago Thiago and I went off for a romantic weekend gateway at Cedar Crest Lodge located in in Pleasanton, KS (which is only 80 mi from the city), and that was the best weekend we’ve had in a long time!19212975_1810012869014211_294154869_o19205096_1810013055680859_371018743_o

 

First of all the drive is so worth! As soon as started to drive into the the Lodge, we could already feel the breeze and the peaceful vibes of the place. To star off, we’re warmly welcome by Matt Cunningham, the owner, in the CUTEST “rustic-chiq” check-in area with our names written on the chalkboard, which had the sunrise and sunset times as well. Then he kindly showed us around and directed us to our room.

The room

We stayed at “The Country Meadow” Luxury Room, and it couldn’t be more perfect (they even had a “S’mores Kit” waiting for us). The suit is located in the main Lodge and has a stunning view just outside the door at the front porch. Besides the lovely Rustic Chic decor, it has everything you need. Corner soaking tub, heated floors, towel warmer, coffee maker, black towels for makeup removals, and so on. It so comfy that we literally didn’t want to leave the room! View all rooms here.

Farm-to-table Gourmet Dinning

At Cedar Crest Lodge they offer a 3-course dinner and a 2-course breakfast (included in any stay), and most of the vegetables and fruits served are from their own garden. Dinner starts with a fresh organic salad and homemade rolls, followed by chosen meat plus sides, and finishes with dessert and coffee.

Now if you are breakfast lover like I am, Cedar Crest Lodge 2-course breakfast is a MUST! Thiago and I chose to seat outside and let me tell you, the view is breathtaking. They started by bringing a delicious “banana split” parfait with fresh strawberries, banana, yogurt and homemade granola and fresh baked blubbery muffins. Then we had a egg Benedict quiche with fruits and bacon, which I gave all to Thiago of course. It was so perfect and relaxing. The fresh food, service, and the environment were just impeccable.

 External activities

After I came back from Cedar Crest Lodge, one of my friends asked me “but what did you do there? Didn’t you get bored?”.  The answer is: DEFINITELY NOT! If you want to do more than just enjoy the beautiful view and relax, Cedar Crest Lodge offers several outside activities such as walking trail, fishing pounds, pool, fire pit, horse shoe pits, and bocce ball court . In additional, they also have a day spa on site that guests can use through advanced appointment only (Spa Services). I promise you there is no way to get bored at Cedar Crest Lodge and you won’t want to leave that place!

Thiago and I really enjoyed our weekend and it was the perfect getaway without having to travel for hours. It is peaceful, offers delicious food, the service is outstanding, and it has a very romantic atmosphere with flowers everywhere around the Lodge (which they plant themselves). Not only the innkeepers, but the entire staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time during our stay!
