Looking for a girlfriend getaway? Sip amazing wines and shop chic boutiques – all without having to get on a plane.
🖤Cheers to Girlfriends🖤
Once in a while, you need to pack a bag, get the girls, and go on a road trip. A short 3-hour drive from the CLE (Ohio) drops you off at an incredibly quaint spot-O-the-state. Featuring a glam-rustic cabin at Arrow Ridge Lodge along with 2 of the most welcoming, and wine-tacular vineyards – you definitely need to add this getaway to your (wine barrel) bucket list of places to visit ASAP. Remember THIS trip I took here in the fall?
🖤Camping ’til Further Notice🖤
Living the cabin life. And no – I am NOT a camping type-o-girl. Unless it’s “glamping“, I’m busy. But oh-emmm-gee – look at how gorgeous Arrow Ridge Lodge is! A luxurious twist on a classic rustic cabin. I’m kinda giddy over all the glammed-out designs and customizations!
- Brand-spankin’-new log cabins
- Pool tables
- Outdoor and indoor fireplaces
- Capability to sleep up to 16 of your best BFFs
Hocking Hills, where Arrow Ridge Lodge is located, is a hidden gem of a place, IMO. It’s Ohio’s natural crown jewel!
Can you even imagine how spectacular this lodge would be in the fall with changing leaves or in the winter with a gentle snowfall?!
🖤Partners in Wine🖤
Time to uncork and unwind with these blogger babes! As we rosé the day away, two Ohio wineries were at the top of our list!
If you can’t go to Napa, let Napa come to you! Buckey Lake Winery brings the Napa Valley experience home to create an atmosphere of relaxation and recreation on the waters at Buckeye Lake. They work directly with growers in the Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma, and Lodi Regions.
Napa in Ohio? How?
- Traveling to California each Fall to evaluate the grapes and determine when to harvest
- Coordinating and participate in the harvest
- Leasing space at custom crush facilities
- Fermenting the grapes and coordinating the logistics to get the young raw wine back to their facilities for aging
- Blending and bottling
This hands-on approach from start to finish ensures a Napa quality wine since they start with the grape. Which of THESE upcoming events looks good to you?
“Drink what you like!” is their philosophy. Cheers to that! Wine is not about following rules or letting someone else tell you what you should drink, ladies. Wine is about enjoyment. Rockside Winery‘s events enhance the experience. Always something unique going on, such as…
- Thursday Happy Hours
- Saturday Night Live Music
- Barbeque Dinners
- Craft Nights
Check out their online Event Calendar HERE for information and reservations.
Let the shenanigans begin with these girls! Oh yasssss we did with matchy-matchy tees. I mean, a rosé kinda day? On it. Done & done. And – Yes, please! As a fab follower of Glam Karen, you can take 25% off your purchases using code “GIRLSWEEKEND25” here! Being a t-shirt snob, I’m pretty picky over what tees I will actually wear and feel confident while wearing. You feel me? Side seamed, rolled cuffed, a high-low raw edged hem along with a relaxed, drapey fit makes these tees glam-worthy.
🖤Shop it, Sistah🖤
Who else finds it reeeeeeeeally fun to discover new shopping sites while traveling? For the double-win, exploring chic boutiques with your girlfriends. On a girlfriends’ getaway weekend. While in Lancaster, Ohio myself and my blogger babe girlfriends came to fall-in-love with these stores – so be sure to write ’em down (or PIN the image) so you’ll know where to stop & shop first!
