Dawson Creek, Accommodation
This past weekend, my husband and I stayed at the Granaries on Bear Mountain B&B, Dawson Creek, for our anniversary. It was our third time there and it was fantastic as always.
They have turned old granary bins into a relaxing retreat. There are three buildings: a round one for the dining room with french doors surrounding the one side; one rectangular one is the bathroom with a big, two-person jet tub; and the third is a cozy bedroom. They are all connected by a stone courtyard.
And, the whole thing is perched on the edge of a pond that the owners built - but you would never know, it looks completely natural. It's great for bird watching and adds to the relaxing feel.
Have I mentioned the food yet? We booked a romantic 3-course dinner that featured sausage, cranberry, and apricot stuffed pork tenderloin - the breakfasts are out of this world! I will have to hit the gym pretty hard this week.
They have also built trails and paths all over the property that you can take a leisurly stroll on and there is a giant chess set that works well with an afternoon glass of wine.
I can't wait to go again! It is such a lovely retreat that I don't have to travel far from home to find.
