This past weekend we had the opportunity to take some much needed time off from our house projects and jump into the truck for a road trip up to Blue Mountain Resort. What a 48 hour getaway it was! We absolutely loved the down time we got as a family, not to mention the abundance of activities for the boys and all of the food! I thought it would be fun to break down how we spent our time together so you could do it too during the spring at Blue Mountain Resort. And let me tell you, their summer and fall activities look just as rad too!
Where To Stay at Blue Mountain
We stayed at the Westin Trillium House and I could not recommend this place enough! They went out of their way to make our crew feel right at home. From the teepee and bowling set inside of our room for the boys to play with to the perfect suite for a family of four including a full kitchen, balcony and a fireplace! We loved the amenities the property had to offer. They have a children’s play room on the main level and the boys just had to swing in for a few minutes anytime we were leaving or entering the hotel. The pool area and gym was perfect. And let’s talk about food! Yes, we tried that too and it was on point. We’re all suckers for room service. There’s just something about it coming right to us in the room that we all seem to love when traveling!
This was a HUGE hit for our crew. Although Enzo did give us some resistance with the how high it went and being worried it would be scary. But Michael and I decided it was worth pushing him to overcome his fear! We’re sure glad we did. The 360 views with the wind in our hair was SO worth it. It took Enzo less than 2 minutes to love the ride too! Not to mention the perfect photo opportunities at the top of the mountain. There are also some trails on top that you can do a short hike with your crew. We brought the double stroller up the mountain which made everyones life easier.
This place is perfect for kids of all ages. But all that mattered to our little dudes were the water slides (that didn’t go too fast or too high)! Added bonus was Enzo could stand in most of the pool. He loved that it provided him the opportunity to swim or stand wherever he wanted to in the pool. Mr. independent, huh? Ziggy loved practicing all his swim skills and basically holding his breath as long as he possibly could!
Kids and adults alike will love this 18 hole course. Our crew made it a whole 6 holes, so we for sure count that as a win! One tip we can provide is the course is in full sun. So wear that sunscreen or come later in the evening when the sun is less intense.
The boys love being out on the water and were making the boat move all by themselves…well you know kinda with Michael’s help! We went in a boat for 4 which was a little tight seeing how I didn’t trust both boys to sit in back by themselves. I would advise getting two boats, unless you’ve got little ones you can trust in back all alone!
Get your workout on while enjoying the view. With this hike you can clearly see why people workout on inclines! We’d love to come back to do this hike later in the summer and the fall too, there are just so many things to take in!
This place was the perfect start for our crew! Pizza, meatballs, garlic bread and Cesar salad with a bottle of vino for Michael and I! The boys loved that we could sit outside and see the playground and pond at the same time! The pizza was perfect for sharing and they offer so many different choices. We went with pepperoni for the dudes and Johnny Lombardi for us!
Breakfast served all day, I mean you can’t really go wrong here! Our dudes loved the pancakes and waffles. Michael and I shared lox and yogurt with fruit with a side of scrambled eggs! We both felt the yogurt could have had less fruit and more yogurt but loved the taste regardless. The lox were on point and the eggs were done exactly how Michael loves them. We added some hot sauce to kick them up to the next level!
This restaurant was hands down our favorite of the weekend! If you’re looking for a romantic night out or even a family night where you get to enjoy delicious food together this spot is it! The boys went with butter garlic noodles, a go-to favorite of theirs of course! Michael and I got a full spread including the antipasto, seared scallops and Caesar salad to start! We shared two entrees which were done to perfection! And ended the evening with dessert. What’s not to love about that!
We loved this spot! We dined here for breakfast and Michael and I no joke talked about it all the way home. The boys got waffles…of course. We went with the eggs Benedict which was to die for and the yogurt which Michael loved so much we took one home with us! Gotta love a good freezer bag for travels!
We loved this quick getaway for our crew and truly look forward to visiting again! You know every place leads to new adventures and fun memories that we will hold on to for a lifetime. Till next time!
