Uptown Acorn Travels {Grand Hotel}

It's no secret that J and I adore the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama. If you have not been, you must put this resort on your must-stay list. Upon our way home from Watercolor, we stopped for a couple nights and days in Point Clear. The stay is always a wonderful one especially laying by the adults-only pool with food and drink service. It does not get better than that. We were also pleased with the updated on-site restaurants, Bayside Grille and Southern Roots. Cocktails at Bucky's Lounge is always a treat!

This high-end beach and golf resort lies 3.4 miles from the Fairhope Municipal Pier and 3.8 miles from the Fairhope Museum of History. 

The relaxed rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers and balconies (some with bay views). Suites add separate bedrooms and pull-out couches.

In addition to 2 golf courses, the property has 7 bars and restaurants, including a casual seafood eatery. There's also an indoor pool, a lagoon-style pool with a kids' pool, and a hot tub, plus a fitness center, and an elegant spa offering massage and beauty treatments. Other amenities include 35,000 sq. ft. of conference space, plus beach access.

The Grand Hotel, y'all!

Uptown Acorn Travels {Watercolor, Florida}

It's hard to believe that just a week ago, J and I were waking up to the sights and sounds of the beach at the Watercolor Inn along 30A. Watercolor is a favorite destination of ours. From laying on the beach and the adult pool to dining at the restaurants, the Watercolor Inn is a perfect place to do it all.

Overlooking the sugar sands of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, just a short distance from popular attractions including Seaside and Rosemary Beach, you will find WaterColor Inn, a warm family-friendly destination steeped in southern hospitality, history and charm. Our hotel is situated on a stunning 500-acre community, tucked between the Gulf of Mexico and a coastal dune lake framed by a longleaf pine forest. Thoughtfully designed by architect David Rockwell and featuring a gorgeously renovated lobby, the Inn seamlessly marries the laid-back comfort of a classic beach house with the modern perks and indulgences of a luxury boutique hotel. 
WaterColor experiences are inspired by our surroundings, from the coastal elegance of the 60 guest rooms and suites to the locally sourced menus and captivating Gulf views at the restaurants. Throughout the beautifully landscaped grounds, pebbled footpaths wind through picturesque parks and gardens, leading the way to a boathouse, tennis courts, spa, shops, restaurants, a fitness centerand a private beach.

Walking Uptown {Coliseum Cottage}

Uptown New Orleans has its share of grande dames, but I still adore the charming cottages that line Uptown streets. This charming cottage on Coliseum Street has been a favorite of mine for a long time. The dark hue and bright white trim look so adorable surrounded by the majestic oaks.
