We're here right now! I'm writing, sitting in a comfy chair in the Penthouse Suite, looking out the large bay window, watching ducks and a beautiful Blue Heron sitting beside the lake. Yesterday the Heron flew right past the bay window. It felt like it was in slow motion. It was so beautiful! I feel blessed to have seen such a sight.
This is my husband and my third visit to the Twin Lakes Lodge. This feels like a home away from home for us. Such a comfortable atmosphere and the most amazing hospitality. I've never stayed at a more wonderful place.
We live in Raleigh, so we're only about 1.5 hours away. We usually visit here in May to celebrate our anniversary, but decided to take a long weekend away (Friday - Monday) to get away during the winter months and we're so glad we did. It's such a different view here (this time of year) with no leaves on the trees. It's still magnificent! I've concluded that any time of year is the best time of year to be visiting here. :)
The Twin Lakes Lodge feels so secluded, yet you're right off the highway and near shopping, a movie theater, and a ton of food places. It's very conveniently located! We ate at an amazing Italian restaurant last night (Bianca's Italian Eatery) that we both highly recommend. It's a five-course meal averaging around $15 per person. Amazing food! It's sort of a hole in the wall, but so worth trying. Very quaint with the best service!
Anita (the Innkeeper) is the most hospitable person I've ever met. She is truly gifted to be in this line of work. She's so personable and makes your stay here even better than expected. She makes the breakfast and serves it to your room each morning at your specified time. Her food tastes so incredible! I'm thrilled to stay more than one night just so I can have more breakfasts. :)
If you're in Greensboro, this is definitely the place to stay!
