Last month, the hubs and I celebrated our ten year anniversary. I figured it was a significant milestone that merited a special place to honor it. Someplace pretty, romantic, sumptuous.
Terry made us dinner reservations at Pasta Moon on nearby Main Street where we enjoyed a delicious pork chop and I was able to order gluten-free pasta, a real treat in a restaurant.
We returned to the inn to relax under the stars (and twinkling lights) in the private hot tub that’s tucked inside a lattice work gazebo.
The dining room is always open for tea and cookies (or a slice of the decadently delicious pound cake). So we capped the night off with champagne and cake by the fireplace in our suite.
Seriously, you’d be hard pressed to find a more romantic place than the Mill Rose Inn.
Next morning, we were treated to a champagne breakfast served in our room. We spent the rest of the morning lounging in our room and in the lush gardens perfumed by rose blooms.
Before we left, we wandered around the charming streets of Old Town Half Moon Bay. I really love this little town and return often. Before heading out, we had a bite on the sunny back deck of the historic San Benito House. This inn/saloon is rich on character and you often can catch live music here.
When we were there the deck was awash in orange — the town was gearing up for the the annual pumpkin festival because everyone knows that Half Moon Bay is recognized as the “pumpkin capital of the world.” Or now you do.
