In Travel/Arizona

Last weekend Tim and I enjoyed an overnight retreat at the Mountain Shadows Resort. It had been way too long since we’ve had some alone time and the resort offered the serene sanctuary we needed. The property is beautiful and inviting with spectacular views of Camelback Mountain.

Check-in was simple and quick and we were welcomed with a warmth that assured us we were in for a spectacular stay. The vibe of the resort is laid back and casual with a hint of vintage swank. We LOVED our room, it was unlike any other hotel room we have ever stayed in. We had a first floor room with a lovely private patio that opened up into a large lawn where a wedding was being set up. The aesthetic of the room was clean and modern, with  insanely high ceilings that made the space feel very open and airy. The centerpiece of the room was the huge open shower with high glass walls that reached the ceiling. I loved that shower. And I loved our room!

We threw open the curtains and let in all the beautiful sun light and relaxed. The bed was extremely comfortable with plush linens and lots of pillows. We enjoyed champagne on our patio and watched the sun set before dinner at Hearth ’61, the resort’s fabulous restaurant – which I will share in a separate post.

It was a perfect evening.

The next morning and afternoon we spent at the pool. The pool area also offers glorious views of the mountain and service was great. We had lunch and some cocktails poolside and soaked up the warm spring sunshine.

Mountain Shadows is a chic resort, perfect for a romantic weekend. Every detail, from the bright lobby area and sleek design to our beautiful and comfortable room made our sweet and short stay perfect.
