So I turned 40 a few weeks ago and the hubs turned 40 a few days after that. Go us!
We decided that since our original plan of going to Disney was cancelled due to Covid-19 that we should still do something local. So we planned a staycation.
We had some very exacting standards that had to be met, like all the rooms had to be accessible from outside, not inside, the main building. The location had to have a small number of rooms, so a small amount of guests! And we could eat in the room, not the main dining room. Also, masks all around!
After hours of searching we finally managed to find a place! And by we I mean me. I did all the searching and then the hubs agreed to the locale.
We found Elm Creek Manor! This little B & B met all of our requirements and had the added benefit of being a farm to table location too! They are located about two hours north west of Dallas, TX so the drive there wasn’t too bad.
I must say, we were not disappointed at all. This quaint little B & B was everything we hoped it would be. The room (which I forgot to take pictures of) was comfortable, and the bed was great. The sheets were super soft. Not typical hotel sheets at all.
I totally forgot to take pictures of the food, by the way. I was to busy eating it. But the food was amazing. Home grown arugula salads with fresh picked tomatoes. Farm fresh eggs with breakfast for the hubs because I am allergic. And the dinners! Country ham with pink peppercorns and tomato risotto. Roasted chicken with hominy and roasted veg.
It was so good.
We took a little hike/romantically cheesy scavenger hunt that took us all over the property. This was part of the package we had selected. This package also included a massage. The masseuse wore a mask the entire time and I felt safe with the precautions she took for us.
When all is said and done we are considering going back in post Covid times when we can experience the town of Muenster, TX, which is where this B & B is located. We spent all our time reading.
