The Greenbrier vs The Grove Park Inn

We haven't been on a romantic vacation in quite a while.

We have been fortunate enough to have gotten some time alone. But staying home in our cluttered domicile with it's thread bare sheets and unreliable electronics doesn't qualify as "getting away from it all".

So for the past 5 years I've told Jim I don't want anything for our anniversary. Instead I want a decadently lavish weekend at The Grove Park Inn to celebrate 10 years of wedded bliss. It's not very far from our old stomping grounds in NC and a relatively short car ride from our present location.

News that the famed Greenbrier Resort is bankrupt and being bought by The Marriott corp, means we might have a change in plans. The Greenbrier seems antiquated, pretentious and overpriced. In other words right up my alley! We actually have rewards points from a lifetime ago, when our Marriott stays were frequent. So maybe Jim won't have to commit a bank heist to finance our 10th anniversary after all.
