We recently got away from it all at what Patrick and I think of as our secret little family hideaway. Maybe not so secret anymore since I'm about to share. We first came across Peeks of Otter near Bedford, Virginia during our first road trip as a family when Sabrina was just nine months old. It was not on our itinerary, but we stopped anyway because we had the time and it was so lovely and peaceful. We fell in love and nearly cancelled the remainder of the trip in favor of just staying at Peeks of Otter.
At ten months of age, CC got introduced to this magical place. What's so magical about it? For us, it's about all of us sleeping in one room and bed, about having absolutely nothing to do but be together, about having no phone or internet or TV, about having every meal taken care of, about deer hanging out outside our lodge door, about hiking and exploring, about the experience being inexpensive enough to go whenever the desire stikes us, about taking pictures of the same things during different seasons, about a postcard view from the window, about a place close enough to go to on a whim and far away enough to feel away.
Do you have a place like that?
