I wanted to surprise my wife with a romantic getaway for our 20th anniversary. After searching online I narrowed my choices down and decided to give the Squirrel's nest a try. I was intrigued by the view and the awards the Squirrel's Nest has received. I definitely made the correct choice! The view is as good as advertised. The room was perfect for a romantic stay. Inez even had roses on the bed for our arrival! We enjoyed the hot tub tucked away above and behind the bed that still had a view of the river. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette was perfect for a weekend stay. The best part of the stay was most likely the breakfast. The signature scone was amazing and I loved the quiche. The whole spread was delicious! Definitely the right choice for a couples weekend!
