An Amazing Woman

March 30th, 2018 by castlecreek

Here is a post from the amazing woman who is hosting the Women’s Support Retreat on April 10th. I tell you what, I know a lot of incredible people, but Heidi really stands out! She has dedicated so much of her time to comforting and helping women who have suffered the pain of pregnancy loss and infertility. I can’t wait to have you meet her in April. I’m so grateful to know her and have the Castle be involved in some of the wonderful work she does. Isn’t it great to know the world is filled with selfless people who truly care about others? 🌺

“For those of you who don’t know, I started a non-profit organization called Footprints in My Heart. It’s to help those struggling with infertility and those whohave suffered a loss of their baby any time during pregnancy.

We send care packages to couples experiencing any of these tragedies, and recently organized a support group for any woman or man who is going through this and wants the support of others who are, too. I know that everyone has their own experience, and they are not exactly the same, but I think we can still relate to each other with what we are going through and help each other.

Since April is infertility awareness month, the support group is having an event for women. It will be held April 10th at Castle Creek Inn. We are inviting all those struggling with infertility and those suffering a loss while they were pregnant to come together and have a girls support night. There will be a dinner, a few speakers, and then time to ask/answer questions and get to knows others that you can connect with.

Please share this with anyone who could benefit from a support night out!

I’m still finishing my website but it should be available before the support night. I’ll keep people updated as it gets finished so they can go on and get a package sent to them or get updates on support group events.”

Can’t Get Enough!

March 30th, 2018 by castlecreek

I’m so in love with the Ultimate Romance Package. I really have to control myself to keep from posting a hundred pictures every time I set one up. But I can’t help it this time. It just turned out too beautiful in this room!😍💟🌷

Sleep with the Angels

March 30th, 2018 by castlecreek

I lived in Brazil for several years (which is also where I met my amazing husband whom many of you know from staying here at the Castle). At night, it’s common for Brazilians to say to each other, “Dorme com os anjos,” which means “Sleep with the angels.” At first, I thought it was extremely cheesy and didn’t feel comfortable saying it back. But as I got to know their culture better, I realized it was said with absolute sincerity and kindness. Now, at night, when I turn the lobby lights off, and see the glow of this little angel’s candle, I hope our guests are having a heavenly night. So, to everybody staying at the Castle tonight, and to all our wonderful Facebook friends: Sleep with the angels!💖😇🌟

Beautiful Night

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I’m so loving this view. And the weather is absolutely perfect! 💖

Tea Party Update

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

Tea Party update!

I don’t have all the details yet, but I did want to give you a heads up. Our Castle Tea Party will be held either Tuesday, April 24th or Wednesday, April 25th. From the response so far, we may be holding more than one!🏰🍰

Grandparents are invited to bring your grandkids on a fun, fancy date! Parents, or aunts & uncles are also invited. We know families come in all shapes and sizes, and all are welcome!👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 It will be formal dress; come ready to have your picture taken like royalty!👑💍💎

Speaking of royalty, I heard the Princess of the Castle will be making a special appearance to greet her guests and pose for photos. She may be accompanied by other members of our royal family.💃

I’m so excited! Stay tuned for more details and info on where and how to obtain your ticket to the party!🎈🎉🎫

New Decorations

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I love this new floral decoration for Rapunzel’s Tower. 💖

Shout out to Taiwan Imports where the gorgeous vase was found. If you’ve never been there, I highly recommend you just go walk through. It’s such an amazing place! Just terrific!👍👌👏

 

Breakfast To-Go

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

Whenever a guest has to leave before breakfast, we pack up some of our delicious glazed poppy seed bread, fresh fruit, and a breakfast juice for the road. It’s all finger food so it’s easy to eat on the run! I just made these up for a couple guests to take with them in the morning and realized I’ve never really mentioned the to-go breakfast option on social media. I love fruit so this looks more like my typical breakfast than does the regular Castle breakfast. What do you eat for breakfast when you’re not at the Castle?

Updates to the Movie Library!

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

If you love movies like we do, you’ll love this snap shot of our latest additions to our online movie library, available and free to all our guests at the Castle!

I just watched The Foreigner the other day and haven’t stopped speaking in an Irish accent. It was a surprisingly captivating movie; I really enjoyed it! That could be because I love me some Jackie Chan. 😍

Our Beautiful New Room: Versailles

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

Here’s a sneak peek of our new room for 2018. I love that this beautiful Castle is owned by someone who constantly works to improve the guest experience and overall atmosphere. She pays attention to the tiniest details and really puts her heart into every project.

I apologize for the photo quality. I snapped these on my cell phone quickly before check-in today. Better photos will be posted next week! But for now… Welcome to Versailles!

The Haunted Castle Experience (Coming October 2018)

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

Several staff members and I think it would be really cool to do a haunted experience here at the Castle during the month of October. Creepy things would happen all throughout your stay. I, personally, could never do it as a guest because I’m extremely fragile that way, but I’d have a blast if I’m not the one being scared.

What do you all think? Would you enjoy a haunted experience here at the Castle? Could you do it? How scary could you handle your night being on a PG-R rating? I’m right about a PG level myself. I could maybe have someone jump out at me one time, but then I’d be done for the rest of the night.

I’m so excited to get your thoughts on this!

The Castle is a Cyclops!

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I was laughing about this with the management team earlier. Tell me if you see it, too!

In this photo, the Castle looks like a cyclops with a gaping mouth and just two little bottom teeth. The lamp posts look like dimples! It gives me the giggles.

Women Support Retreat Update

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I was informed this week we have very limited seating still available for the Women’s Support Retreat on April 10th. I believe there were just 12 spots open. So there is still room if you’re wanting to come with a group or purchase individual tickets.

If you’re planning to come and just haven’t gotten around to buying your tickets, please do so! I’d hate for you to miss out on this wonderful event!

Get your tickets online at https://resnexus.com/…/Reserva…/Lodging/RetailAndSpecials/5… or call us at 801-567-9437.

I’ll see you there!💜

Dreaming of Spring

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I came across this photo this week. I so cannot wait for the lower fish pond to look like this again! Come on warm weather! I’m rooting for you!

Great News!

March 23rd, 2018 by castlecreek

I just found out something wonderful and had to tell all you lovely people about it! I’m not even sure when this is going down, or what all the details are, but I couldn’t wait! (I’ll post updates as I get them.)

The Castle is going to host a tea party for Grandparents to bring their Grandkids. (Before you start feeling left out, parents can also attend if you’d like!) It’s going to be a formal occasion, so everyone will be dressed up fancy and have the chance to get their photo taken. How ADORABLE is that? A tea party in a Castle!

I’m so excited, especially because we’re not generally a child-friendly business. Most of our guests are couples on a romantic getaway, or business people needing a quiet place to work, and, as you all know, children don’t mix well in these situations. But so many kids love to come tour the Castle every week. It’s so fun to see their eyes light up and ask “Is this where the Princess sleeps?”

It’ll be so fun to have them come spend a special day in the Castle with the people they love most in the world! (We all know they prefer Grandma and Grandpa! It’s no secret.😂)

We’ll be sending out an official invitation (hopefully before March ends–I’m still waiting to hear) with instructions to RSVP. Obviously it will be very limited as our dining room can only seat so many for a party like this!

I can’t wait! 🍽️🍨🏰👑

Edinburgh: A Unique Experience

March 6th, 2018 by castlecreek

Edinburgh is one of the Castle’s most memorable rooms. Nearly anyone who’s ever come, even just for a tour, can recall “the red room”. For some, the red walls are too much. Others are surprised by the subtlety of the red in real life; they say the photos are far more intense.

Guests who stay in Edinburgh enjoy a 43″ 4K UHD Roku TV, complete with our complimentary online movie library, mounted on a swivel mount, allowing for maximum binge enjoyment from the jetted tub, couch, or cozy Queen bed.

For me, personally, Edinburgh is an interesting social experiment. It’s amazing to see the reactions of our guests which range from claims that the red walls combined with the knight keeping watch during their stay will give them nightmares (or knightmares as I prefer to think of them), to gasps of breathless adoration for the “stunningly gorgeous” and spacious room.

These moments remind me just how distinct and diverse is each person who walks the face of our beautiful Earth. Every pair of eyes observes the world from a unique perspective. I believe that, rather than divide us, our differences are what connect us and expand our horizons. Nobody has to like the same things as their peers, and it’s ok to totally geek out over something others consider quirky or downright bizarre. How boring life would be if our thoughts were all the same!

I’m grateful for Edinburgh, my personal little reminder that our world is beautiful because of its individual inhabitants.Edinburgh isn’t like any of our other rooms. It’s unique, just like each one of us. And I absolutely love it!

So Romantic!

March 5th, 2018 by castlecreek

A couple more photos I snapped over the weekend. I just love the romantic add-ons; they make for such a lovely getaway.

Funny Ice Cream

March 5th, 2018 by castlecreek

I was carrying these banana splits to a room over the weekend when I saw how funny the ice cream sticking out the side looked. I hurried and snapped a photo so I could share it. It still makes me giggle, I’m not even sure why!

Do you see it on the bottom left?😂

Cold Weather Makes for Great Date Nights!

March 2nd, 2018 by castlecreek

This weather is perfect for a warm fire and creamy hot chocolate! 💝🔥

To Simpler Times!

March 1st, 2018 by castlecreek

Don’t root beer floats and pizza just take you back to a simpler time?

Mmm mmm mmm… There’s something cozy about it!😇💝🌟

The Coziest Breakfast Tip

February 27th, 2018 by castlecreek

Here’s a secret tip: If you stay on a night that’s a bit slower, usually early in the week (Mon-Wed), you may be able to get a customized breakfast brought straight to your room. Customized breakfasts and room deliveries aren’t available when we’re busy as our kitchen isn’t large enough for multiple orders and our kitchen staff is busy making sure there’s enough food in the buffet for everybody (including guests with food allergies).

If this is something you would love, and your schedule is a bit flexible, call the Castle and we’ll find you a quiet night and set up your custom breakfast in bed. 😍👑💖

These photos are from one such breakfast this morning.😋

Winter in Utah

February 27th, 2018 by castlecreek

As much as the snow can be stressful and frankly kind-of a pain in the back, I do think it’s one of the prettiest things to behold. (I am missing that warmer, Spring-like weather, though.)

The Most Important Meal of the Day

February 27th, 2018 by castlecreek

I hope you all remembered the most important meal of the day! This breakfast was made for one of the sweetest couples ever.💘

Happy Tuesday!

Women’s Support Retreat

February 26th, 2018 by castlecreek

I hope you all saw the official announcement for the Women’s Support Retreat on April 10th. I’ve received many questions throughout the day about the dinner menu, event schedule, and cost, so I thought I’d do a follow-up post with general information before tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (8:00 AM).
