Few activities are more relaxing than reading a good book, but finding leisure time for literature isn't as simple. If you need to bookmark some time to unwind, crack open this week's Escape to An Inn on York Street in Chester, South Carolina.
You and your favorite character will write your own adventure during a two-night stay for two in the Mark Twain Suite, Sundays through Thursdays ($140) or Fridays and Saturdays ($170). Or, opt to spend two nights in the Noel Coward Suite, Sundays through Thursdays ($160) or Fridays and Saturdays ($190).
Individually decorated suites make the perfect setting for your love story. Featuring queen beds fitted with soft downs as well as en-suite bathrooms, your accommodations will feel like home away from home. Each morning, wake to a three-course gourmet breakfast for two, lovingly prepared by the innkeepers. Mark and Sandie Woodier personify hospitality with their British background and appreciation for Southern charm.
As a prologue to your day, laze on the porch swing, then sun yourself by the pool. In town, you can browse more than 7,000 square feet of Southern antiques with a 20-percent discount at Hall Lumber Company or pick up whimsical gifts at The Yellow Daisy Store. Bustling Charlotte, North Carolina, is just 30 minutes north for those looking to add more action to the plot.
The Carolina countryside offers a library of outdoor adventures. Check out nearby Chester State Park for hiking, fishing, and picnicking by the lake, then ask the innkeepers about scheduling tee times at the Chester Golf Club. Your day will be punctuated with a juicy steak dinner at the Summit Food & Spirits restaurant, where you'll receive a ten-percent discount and complimentary dessert.
You can turn the page on hectic days at An Inn on York Street, but reserve a copy quickly because this week's Escape is flying off the shelves.
