A couple of weekends ago, Michael and I had the chance to get away, just the two of us. Back at Christmas my parents gifted us a one-night stay at Maple Hill Bed & Breakfast in Eddyville, KY, on the banks of Lake Barkley. We decided to go right after my birthday earlier this month.
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay and got to spend all day Saturday running around town and getting Easter goodies and then we drove to Eddyville. It was a beautiful day and we were not rushed. We got to chat and just enjoy each others company.
Saturday evening we had reservations at Patti's 1880 Settlement. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in which the food was delicious, the service and atmosphere was outstanding and no one was crying or needing to be told to eat.
Here are some pictures from our quick getaway. It was my first night to stay away from Haley. I did worry a little about how their night would go but I was relieved to hear that she slept the whole night in the crib and Nana and Papaw's house and Jonah slept good too.
The comfy king size bed in our room with spa sheets.
Sitting area in front of the TV in our room. All the rooms have wonderful antiques.
The original fireplace with electric insert.
The view from the front porch of the home.
The home is immaculately landscaped. The inn-keeper's husband runs a landscaping business so it's always so beautifully kept outside.
The inviting front porch with rocking chairs. I would love a porch like this one day!
Heading to eat at Patti's. I love going here and it's always a special treat. The food is wonderful and their signature is 2 inch pork chops. I didn't get that this time but it's a classic if you go.
Another thing I love about Patti's is it's in a genuine old home or storefront and a lot of the original details have been kept and they decorate and go all out for each season. Of course this was before Easter so everything was Spring or Easter themed. Each room is different themes and color schemes.
We had our waitress snap our picture. It was really dark in our room so we had to use the flash. :( Notice the flower pot in front of us....that is what they bake and serve their bread in. So neat and so yummy with their strawberry butter.
The main foyer was decorated and this is a blurry pictures but it was so cute!
This was taken in front of the old mill water wheel. Behind the restaurant are all kinds of neat little shops and and old timey photo booth and some put put golf. You can even get married there in a little chapel. It's so cute!
The next morning we were served breakfast in the dinning room. We had Belgian waffles with fruit and a slice if KY legend ham. We also had a fruit and yogurt cup and fresh orange juice, coffee or tea. It was delicious and decadent!
Like I said, the home is full of unique and true antiques and it's so fun to feel like you've stepped back in time a little bit. It really makes you want to slow down and take your time.
Last but not least a shot of the house from the front. It's a beautiful place and so glad we got to enjoy it if only for a little while. Can't wait to go back in June for our 10 year anniversary!
