It's been more than 50 years since Rockin' Robin debuted, but the tune is as upbeat as ever. If life sounds a little flat lately, press play on this week's Escape to Robinwood Bed & Breakfast in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.
Bring a guest to sing a two-night duet in the Albert Pike Room, Grady Manning Suite, or Lafayette Suite, Sundays through Thursdays or Fridays and Saturdays ($185). Each guest room boasts a king or queen bed, high-definition LCD TV, and Jacuzzi tub.
You'll struggle to refrain from singing when you're greeted with champagne, candles, and brandy-dipped chocolate cherries on the first night, followed by red or white wine and a selection of chocolates on the second night. Each morning, wake to a piping-hot breakfast composed of homemade muffins, ham and cheese croissants, omelets, and a variety of vegetarian and vegan options.
After breakfast, harmonize with nature on the sprawling wraparound porch of this prairie-style home, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture. Open interior spaces, horizontal lines, and overhanging eaves are sure to put you in tune with your surroundings.
Little Rock boasts a chorus of cultural offerings. If history is strikes a chord with you, visit the Old State House Museum, the oldest existing capitol building west of the Mississippi. And don't skip the largest collection of presidential memorabilia in the country at the Clinton Presidential Center.
In the evening, pick up the tempo with an outing to the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, where you can catch live shows like The Wiz and To Kill a Mockingbird.
If a vacation sounds like music to your ears, sing along with this week's pitch-perfect Escape to Little Rock.
