NY Press Release Lists Inn at Craig Place in the Top 10 Most Romantic Inns!

This is starting off to be a great year! We recently received word that on Jan. 9, a special Valentine’s press release in NY listed us in the top 10 places to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

The article began “Top 10 Romantic Inns Toast Valentine’s Day with Complimentary Sweets and Romantic Treats—”

And the write up about us stated:

The Inn at Craig Place  – San Antonio, TX: How do you love thee? At The Inn at Craig Place, you can count the ways including bouquets of roses, sweet treats, champagne, spa baskets, balloons, picnic baskets with a cheese and fruit board and more. An Italian Murano glass heart pendant presented with an Italian love poem and confetti candies can be a keepsake from this romantic rendezvous.

Pretty cool!

December in Full Swing!

I can’t believe December is half over already, and the busiest part is yet to come! We are booked up through the end of the year. Gregg was the photographer today and although his pictures are usually quite good (of course, my editing doesn’t hurt either), this picture was extraordinary right from the camera. Cheers to everyone this holiday season! 

Christmas Shopping and Relaxation

Is Christmas shopping a stressful experience for you? It sure can be. In fact, most people wouldn’t consider the words “christmas shopping” and “relaxation” to belong in the same sentence. However, we have some guests who have figured out how to make it more enjoyable. Each year they leave their kids with a sitter for a couple of nights and come to the Inn. They settle in on the first evening with our picnic basket or a pizza from Main Street Pizza, watch a movie and relax. In the morning, after their gourmet breakfast, they head out to the mall to do some shopping. Northstar Mall is only 10 minutes north of us, and Rivercenter Mall is just two miles south. There are boutiques and specialty shops along the way. In the late afternoon, they bring back their purchases and get cleaned up and dressed up for a very special dinner out, something couples don’t get to do too often when they have little ones at home. Then back to the Inn for a little quiet time together, another rarity in the busy lives of parents (and Innkeepers!). This is when they wrap the gifts they purchased. And after the next morning’s breakfast, they pack up their things and their Christmas prizes and head home, refreshed and prepared for the craziness that often accompanies the holiday season.

Gregg and I were so inspired by the idea, that we decided to do the same ourselves. We closed down for two days and took off for our own little getaway before the busy rush of the holiday season. It was well worth it!
