DISCLAIMER….This post documents our vacation from September, 2019. We continue to write while being at home because of social distancing due to the coronavirus. This post takes us to Victor, Idaho (Day 8 of our vacation) where we arrived on the other side of the pass from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I encourage you and yours to visit all the beautiful places that the USA has to offer once our great nation overcomes this terrible obstacle in front of us. If you missed any of the Living in the Moment posts from this series, the links are listed at the bottom of this blog. Stay safe and God bless, we will get through this!
As of the date of this blog, DreamCatchers B&B is closed for the summer season 2020 because of COVID-19. Visitors are encouraged to visit their website for any changes. It’s unfortunate that this wonderful B&B is closed because it’s a real treat to stay there. The house has large vaulted ceilings in the family room and lots of tall windows that let in abundant light and picturesque views of the mountains and valley. The outside space is just as impressive with beautiful decks, patios, well maintained grounds and 360 degree views of the beautiful natural surroundings. I hope you will be able to visit this beautiful B&B situated in the Teton Valley between Victor and Driggs, Idaho sometime in the near future.
Even with cloudy and cold rainy days, the stay was perfect. Each morning, Andrew (Innkeeper and Chef) would cook a fabulous gourmet breakfast for us to get our day started. I wished I had taken pictures of our food, but I was living in the moment and it slipped my mind. Bella, the innkeeper’s assistant offered her help beside him in a most enthusiastic way. She loved all the guests and made sure to give kisses and love whenever she could.
We stayed in the Coeur d’Alene (the honeymoon suite), which is the most private and largest of all the rooms in the house, with a magnificent en-suite, complete with double sink vanity, private walk-in shower and a clawfoot copper tub perfect for soaking your aches and pains away. The innkeeper provided some eucalyptus salts and for the two nights we stayed there, I indulged, feeling relaxed with silky skin. The epitome of luxury. What a splurge! A real treat after spending the day in the snow and rain.
We certainly enjoyed the firepit out back and spent some time out there in the chilly weather. Frank took the MSR Pocket Rocket that we brought with us and made some Claude’s Hot Chocolate. One of the things that was a constant for us, on this entire vacation, was to be able to cook a hot meal or make hot chocolate anywhere we wanted. It was always a real treat and one of the most enjoyable things we did. The freedom it gave us to control our schedule, so we could eat or have a treat whenever or where ever we wanted, was great!
I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband that takes me away on adventures to explore the unknown while we are Living in the Moment.
