I stayed at the Post Ranch Inn last week and the memory of the arrival is still fresh in my mind. The privacy and sense of security is paramount with an initial checkpoint on arrival and registration simplified with an offer of drinks....
A silver grey lexus transports one up a hill with the scent of pine in the air....can air smell this pure?
Delivery of luggage and once in my room to my delight a fridge filled with wonderous snacks...... all complimentary and a bottle of champagne <also complimentary> ready to be opened.
The views were breathtaking and details down to the towels in a eye pleasing shades of stone grey and linens in a white on white pattern.....I could drift away with the views as a canvas in this paradise but remote control in hand had a library of a huge variety of music to find my way through.
One thing I noticed was the amount of thought that had gone into every fibre of this property. Every pipe and piece of steel that could have been an affront to the senses was taken and transported into the environment not as a distraction but as a compliment to it....Nothing seemed out of place with the nature of the place. Even the machine that made ICE was housed in an environmentally-friendly wooded setting.
Everything was thought of ...all wishes anticipated.
If I had any fault to find it was the feast laid out at breakfast. I had been on a low carb diet for two months and fell off the wagon with sumptious grainy breads toasted to a crunchy just rightness....lox and bagels with onions and capers lemon wedges and tomatoe slices....I went back and had to have the muesli <home made> and the yogurt with honey on top!
As a perfectionist in many ways this place was so delightful to my eyes my heart and my soul.
If there is a heaven it might look like this.....Like infinity plus one.
If you are with someone very special it will be a memory forever treasured ...If alone it is also unbelievable....In other words don't wait until you find that the special someone is you :)
