We were very blessed to have the opportunity to sneak away for a few days a couple of weeks ago! We didn’t go too far, but we did get to experience something completely new to both of us— staying at a bed and breakfast!! Neither of us had ever stayed at one!! We were awarded a gift card a couple of years ago to use for a getaway. I’m a little ashamed to say that it took us this long to be able to go!!
We searched bedandbreakfast.com and looked at numerous places in various surrounding cities. Otis came up with the idea of using it for a birthday retreat. Our birthdays are back to back and so we had the when decided, just not the where. We ended up choosing a place in Calabash, NC. This was an ideal location since it was close enough to drive into Myrtle Beach for shopping, attractions, or dining!!
Our reservations were set for The Rose Bed and Breakfast!!
I was a little nervous and unsure about what to expect. I was googling things like ‘do I bring my own towels’ or ‘should I bring sheets and pillows’ the night before while trying to pack. This is probably what caused me to completely forget to pack my toothbrush and contact supplies😩😩😩. #thankfulforCVS
I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. This place was beautiful!!!
The owners were just so sweet, welcoming, and pleasant!!
Our room was spacious and perfect for the two of us!
I can’t write a post about this trip without dedicating at least a paragraph to the amazing breakfast!!! We were given a menu with options to choose from. We chose each night what we wanted to eat the next morning and what time we would be downstairs. It was lovely!!
This is what we came down to-
Over the course of our stay, we enjoyed pecan French toast, an omelet, grits & eggs, baked apples, homemade scones & Coffee cake!! It was all absolutely heavenly!!! Some type of fruit and homemade pastries were served in addition to the menu items we chose. The first day we had baked apples and the second day we were given orange slices with honey and cinnamon. I had never heard of oranges served that way. They were amazing and we plan to copy this treat at home!
This was just a really great experience for us!! We loved it and had zero complaints.
There really isn’t much to do in calabash itself- except eat fried seafood. We drove in and checked out the waterfront.
