Chillin out at the Strawberry Inn | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Chillin out at the Strawberry Inn




























 *Thank you Strawberry Inn for sponsoring this post*

*Disclaimer- Jason gets credit for the title. I asked him what to call this post and he started singing "chillin out at da Strawberry Innnnn" hahah if you can name that song then you're already cooler than me!

A few weeks ago we took a little trip up to Strawberry Arizona and stayed in the Strawberry Inn! It is seriously the cutest little place I have ever stayed in!! The owners just completely redid everything and I literally felt like I was staying in a place I dreamed about on pinterest or something. One thing I would recommend is making it a mom + dad trip haha We LOVE little Brighton to pieces but the room we stayed in would have been best fit for 2 ;) . She pretty much just had a really bad night where sleep was overrated so that was... fun... She has a hard time sleeping in places that aren't her a) crib b) pitch black and since we didn't meet either of those criteria, she did not sleep too well!

The first night after we got Brighton to sleep for a little bit,  Jason and I snuck outside and sat on the porch swing and just talked and looked at the stars (bc romantic) :) Jason may or may not have pulled up pokemon go because the Inn is a gym but I won't talk about that hahaha. It's my favorite thing to do with him lately! Just sit and talk and hold hands. I know that sounds real cheesy, but I am probably the cheesiest person you'll ever know and I eat that stuff up.

Another tip I would say is to go anytime after Wednesday if you are planning on checking out local food places! There was a list of things I wanted to try but they were all closed until Wednesday for some reason and our trip began on Monday. We did find some yummy places in the next town over, though! One place we went to was called Pine delli and it was sooo good! I got a sandwich and J got a pizza,  Jason said it was "the best sandwich I've ever had", so you know it was good.

There are a lot of cool outdoorsy things to do right next to the inn like hiking water wheel, fossil springs, Tonto natural bridge, and just hikes in general. Fossil springs requires a few weeks in advance notice to get a pass so we went and hiked water wheel. It was so pretty and the perfect little hike with a baby! Brighton just hung out in the wrap and she did really great and loved looking around!

After that, we went back to our room, took a family nap, and decided to leave a little early just because we didn't want to repeat night 1. I think it would be really fun to go back with just Jason and I on a weekend so we can experience more! We've hiked fossil springs in the past and it is such a gorgeous hike so I would for sure want to have passes for that for next time! The Strawberry Inn gave me this code to give to you guys to use if you want to plan a trip! Use the code #lovely10 at checkout for 10% off  your stay through the rest of this year!

  2. I love the idea of staying in a cozy inn. I know what you mean though -- Phoenix does pretty well sleeping in his pack 'n play but he wakes up more when I'm in the same room as him so we avoid it when we can!

  5. This place looks so cute! I've always wanted to travel and stay only at small bed in breakfasts or inns like this. Sorry Brighton wasn't thrilled with the sleeping arrangements. (;
