We are looking at 2 options for our minimoon. We can’t afford a big trip with the wedding and a hopeful trip to Englad for Christmas this year. So we’ve decided to spend a few days locally near where we are getting married.
I have found 2 possible accommodations, both have some great features, but I am torn.
Option 1 is a full service B&B http://www.brindesoleilbnb.com/ Cost is $165 a night, full amenities, but its a ways (15-25 min drive) from anything touristy, except local wineries. We’d need to make a trek to one of the nearer towns for odds and ends, eating etc. But it’s really pretty, Tuscan feel, and beautiful views etc.
Option 2 is a rustic cottage, only minutes from a small village, and about 10 minutes form the larger city nearby (Penticton). http://www.solsticecorner.com/
My issue with #2, though cheaper ($100) a night, is that it doesn’t include breakfast, and it doesn’t have a bathtub! I love my baths, and the thought of a romantic evening soak, local wine, some candles is very appealing…it disappoints me there is a shower only. But it’s such a cute place, so cozy and romantic!
Which one would YOU choose?

They both sound awesome, but I’d go with number 1. You want the tub, and, to be perfectly honest, are you going to be focused on touristy things on your honeymoon/minimoon??

A tub was a requirement for my honeymoon, so I say go with 1. I also LOVE breakfast, so yeah…

@abbie017: True lol. We do want to tour some of the wineries, the valley is a hot bed for them and they produce some fantastic wines. But it was more for the dining options, I do NOT want to cook during our time away!

@Take The Reins: i also would go with #1.. both look very nice but as some of the above comments.. your on your mini-moon and may be spending a good deal of time in the room so you should have what you want in that room! as for the food.. im sure there are food options at those wineries!

I’d go with #1 though both of them look very nice but from your comment it sounded like #1 is what you’re looking for. It’s more money but it’s worth it because you’re going on a mini moon.
