It’s date-weekend time again and we recently took one night out to visit the Four Seasons Whistler. (Read about our Las Vegas date-weekend here)
My hubby and I try to get away to spend some one-on-one time overnight somewhat regularly. I love to cover our date questions some times, other times we just keep it light and just enjoy a cocktail (or two) together.
I try to stay off my smart phone, even in the car, so that we can actually talk – about anything and everything. The weather, the view, the kids, the song on the radio – all of this is important to us to feel connected, always.
Our last date-weekend was at the Four Seasons Whistler this summer. We arrived to find we had been generously upgraded. Our room was fantastically gorgeous, with a view of Blackcomb Mountain and a little balcony.
Although the weather that particular day was not favouring our wish to sit poolside, we still enjoyed all three of their hot-tubs. I love that they have pool staff to serve refreshments as well as set up your lounge chair for you. It feels so luxurious.
Dinner out at The Keg in Whistler is one of our favourites. This particular location is a little old fashioned (think diner-style, even), but the food and service at this particular Keg is really amazing and high quality. We have visited this Keg every time we have traveled to Whistler over the past two years and have had a fantastic experience every time.
The evening scene is fun, young and mixed. You can visit a mellow lounge or wine bar if it suits you, or head over to Buffalo Bills, the town hot spot. They play top 40 mixed with a great 90’s selection that keeps the largely ‘Bachelorette-party’ crowd on the dance floor all night. This is where hubby and I like to spend an hour or so, on the dance floor.
On Sundays in the Summer, there is a Farmers Market in the upper village (perfect proximity to the Four Seasons and The Fairmont Chateau (our other favourite) which offers plenty of home made finds and fresh local produce. The ‘pocket pies’ are delicious and unique, we can’t leave Whistler without at least one of each flavour.
