 Escape to Mountain Ranch Resort at Beacon Hill

Princess Thanya lives in Phoenix and boy summers are tough.  Winters are amazingly mild, but once the temperature reaches 110 degrees you start to look for ways to escape.  Resorts abound both in Phoenix and neighboring cities, but the temperature stays the same so although you frolic around pools you are still hot.  We needed a change but didn’t want to drive too many hours from home.  Happily I found out about this incredible resort that was only 2 hours away from me!

The drive was short and beautiful.  Northern Arizona holds many treasures.  Mountain Ranch Resort is located in beautiful Williams, Arizona.  Williams is less then an hour away from the Grand Canyon, making it a wonderful option for accommodations if you are not staying inside the canyon and do not want to stay at the entrance with all the traffic and tourists.

If you are looking for a chance to get away with lots of things to add to your itinerary to do then Mountain Ranch Resort is the place for you. They have rooms that are so specious that you will be able to relax in comfort and style. For those that don’t like smoking, you will be happy to find out that all of their guestrooms are non-smoking. The maximum amount of guests is two in their king rooms and four in their rooms that feature 2 doubles beds. Mountain Ranch Resort is also accommodating if you want to bring your fur baby along as they have rooms that are pet friendly.

We arrived in the afternoon ready to relax.  First impression — the grounds are gorgeous and surrounded by majestic pine trees.  The courtyard to the hotel has a lush lawn where my kids were tickled to see wild hares and their babies playing!   They also spied the pool and that became THE priority, so we were anxious to go to our room and change and go splish splash!  I went to check in at the gorgeous lobby.  The staff was wonderful and welcoming and I instantly knew this was going to be a great stay.  When we got to our room, I decided to never leave.  The inviting touches from the throws on the bed, the robes in the closet, to the Keurig with coffee sampler were all giving me a great big welcome hug.  This hotel has been renovated by its present owners and you can tell that it’s a labor of love.  The rooms have an warm and inviting air to them and you instantly feel at home.  This is not your cookie cutter resort.  From the lobby to the rooms you can feel the personality of its owners welcoming you to their resort.

Though there are a LOT of local activities, we didn’t feel like leaving the resort so we opted to eat at the restaurant onsite, The Ranch Bar & Grill.  It is amazing, with a menu featuring grass fed beef and locally grown and organic ingredients.  The bar service is excellent and the kids meals are generous.  My daughter exclaimed, ‘”This is so awesome Mom you have to try my spaghetti!”  Which is a feat in its own right since she’s been known to be picky.  The same could be said for the next morning’s breakfast, just amazing and FRESH.  Complimentary breakfast doesn’t hurt and includes omelets, whole grain waffle station, freshly baked muffins and breads, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, oatmeal and homemade granola.  Eating healthy to feel your best during your stay is not a choice. Guests will also get complimentary Wi-Fi to utilize in the lobby and even the ability to do their laundry if they choose in the laundry facilities.  If you choose to just stay at the resort and not see the sights for a day of your stay (or more!) there are poolside daybed loungers, a whirlpool, tennis courts, and other activities to keep you active and busy.

Mountain Ranch Resort wants their guests to think of them as more than a place to just sleep at night.  They want you to enjoy yourself while you make plans to visit places such as the Grand Canyon.  The resort has all the amenities that you could ever want to make you relax and get away from it all for just a little while.

Mountain Resort wants to be able to change your life in a way that you will remember them and keep coming back. A healthy experience on your vacation may just empower you to bring some of those lifestyle and behaviors back with you when you leave.  Transforming what was hospitality into a healthy and memorable experience that is relaxing all at the same time.  With all the fitness activities that you have to choose from it will be a wonder if you don’t find something that you will enjoy when visiting.

Their 35 acres allows you to enjoy activities such as horseback riding, hiking, biking, tennis and swimming.  There are also fitness, yoga and weight loss classes that you can attend.  Their fitness and training centers that they have will give you an alternative to going outside if that is not what you like to do.  There is guaranteed to be a program for you.

The retreat packages that are available are meant to help you, your family or even a group of corporate workers come together and learn how to have a healthier lifestyle.  You will enjoy meals that are prepared by their award-winning chef, sit in on classes that will inform you and even get coaching if you so desire one-on-one.

If you are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon or if you are in Phoenix and want a getaway that isn’t far, then this is definitely the resort you want to visit.  They have all inclusive packages that include breakfast, dinner, horse back-riding and fitness classes!  Please visit the website for their Arizona Getaway Packages and Activities Calendar today and check them out on Facebook!  Resort memberships are something that you can look into acquiring so that you can enjoy any of these activities whenever you would like.

We are already looking ahead to later in the year to share this gem with family.

5 Frugal Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

5 Frugal Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

5 Frugal Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day 

Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday in 2016, which is great because it’s a weekend and really opens up the possibilities of how and where to celebrate with your One True Love.  

But, the reality is that a lot of us are still recovering from the Holidays so although we want to make the day special we don’t have a lot of money to spend.  So what can you do that is romantic but frugal?

Stay Home

Babysitters are pricey.  So are meals out.  SO skip the cost of both and stay home.  Valentine’s Day falls on a school night, so if you are like me I will still enforce regular bedtime. After a nice family dinner, plan something like a fun Valentine’s Day treat for the family. Chocolate Fondue is great!  Add in some family fun time, then make sure you put them to bed at their normal time or maybe just a wee bit earlier so you have some alone time with your significant other.  I’m not saying put the kids to bed right after dinner, but if you plan out your time a romantic spot in your bedroom with a bottle of wine is a nice celebration at home that won’t cost too much.  

Celebrate Early

My wedding anniversary is the same week as Christmas which never works out for ANYTHING. We have become masters at celebrating before or after.  No frills.  Keep that in mind for Valentine’s Day.  Having it fall on a Sunday also puts a HIGH demand for babysitters but what about celebrating the Wednesday or weekend before?  Avoid the crowds and in some cases inflated costs associated with holidays and celebrate early.  

It doesn’t have to be Dinner

It can be brunch (especially on a Sunday!) or lunch.  Even better how about making a special lunch and meeting your significant other for lunch during the week?  Or how about coming home for a romantic lunch when the kids are at school?  

Ditch the Sitter!

Babysitters cost as much as dinner.  Yes they do, so what is an alternative?  If you have good friends, offer to watch their kids in exchange for them watching yours.  How about you go to dinner on Friday or Saturday while they watch your kids and they go out on the other day? Or the Weekend before?  If you have family nearby, start buttering them up NOW.   Sundays may not work well for them, so be flexible and make sure your kids schedules aren’t disturbed too much either

My Funny (or Sexy) Valentine

When we were newlyweds, many many years ago, I use to buy silly notes and put them in my husband’s lunch.  I stopped that after a while what with work and kids, but Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to include a note in your significant other’s lunch, wallet, briefcase or leave it in the car visor so it falls on them or whatever works for you.  If you really want to heat things up how about a sexy text?  Or find on a deals website a boudoir photo shoot or couples massage?   I checked on Groupon for romantic ideas, and several places are running great specials for boudoir photo shoots and couples massages, so make sure to look in your area if you want to get adventurous.
