A weekend at the Blue Boar Inn
Last April my husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. As part of that celebration, our children gave us a gift card to be used at the Blue Boar Inn in Midway, Utah. This lovely Inn sits just south of Wasatch State Park and has beautiful mountain views. We decided to save our gift for a stay during Fall color time.
The Inn has old world charm (lots of it) and they serve wonderful food. The complimentary breakfast was beautifully presented and expertly cooked by the on site chef.
We loved our two night stay in this beautifully appointed Inn.
We were greeted in our charming suite with a rose, chocolates, terry cloth robes, and of course, a stuffed boar.
We also received a little gift book featuring selected readings from several authors. You see, every room is given an author's name with decor hinting at the time period in which they lived. We were in the Elizabeth Barret/Robert Browning Suite which included a cozy fireplace and four poster high up bed with a lovely canopy. Go here for photos of the rooms and suites.
After a leisurely late breakfast on our final morning, we decided to take the long way home. We crossed the road into Wasatch State Park and headed north up the mountain side. This was our view looking back at the Inn and Midway. The Heber Valley cloud cover was stunning.
We were on Guardsman Pass road which took us into the mountain tops with mountain meadows heralding fall.
It was lovely. The road came to a junction where one could choose to go to Park City or west to Big Cottonwood Canyon.
We chose to descend into Brighton and Silver Lake at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon and then on down the canyon to the Salt Lake freeway system and home. The aspens were beautiful. It was a glorious day following a few days of rain. It was a wonderful weekend. Special thanks to our very generous and special children and their spouses.
