Mini Vacation

We went on a little mini vacation this past weekend.  It was our 5 year wedding anniversary this weekend, so we just wanted to do a little something to celebrate that.  We couldn’t do a big vacation this year, so we figured we would stay local on Long Island, NY.  We went out on the island to the North Fork.  We stayed at the Hyatt Place.  It’s a newer hotel and very pretty.  Check it out here.
The room we had was a Double Queen/Harbor View.  This room overlooks the Peconic Bay in Riverhead, NY.

The rooms had a very nice soft palette.  The walls were a creamy white with accent walls of, I would call it “Acorn”.  It was a deep golden/yellowish color.  I loved it.  You can see the accent wall behind the bed.  Brown & Blue bedding to top off the room.  I really loved these colors together.  Very calm.

Here is the desk area.  You can see the “Acorn” colored accent wall again.  I love how they used a picture ledge for this piece of art.  Super cute way to display it.

Here is the small bar area.  Mini fridge was included, with coffee in room.  I loved the tall mirror above this area.  Didn’t make it feel like it was in a corner that way.  I love what mirrors can do for a room.

Here is the great sectional with an ottoman that was on wheels.  The ottoman was accented with leather on top.  The sectional was a nice golden color with the brown accents.

I also loved the room divider that they used to separate the seating area from the bed area.

Here we have the sink area.  I really don’t love the separate sink area from the shower, but it was done nicely with dark woods and granite counter tops.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the shower room.

And here was the view from our room on the 5th floor.  They even had boat houses docked here.  Beautiful view of the Peconic Bay.  To bad the trees really haven’t started to change color yet, because this scene would have been gorgeous then.

Look they even had a windmill across the way.  See it in the middle of the picture?

Long Island has lots to see & do, especially out on the North & South forks of the island. Outlets, Riverhead Aquarium right next door to the Hyatt Hotel, farms…farms…and more farms with local fruits and vegetables, antique stores, lots of great restaurants and plenty of beaches to have fun on.

We went further out on the island and went to a farm called Harbes Farm & Vineyard. Great place. Nice and big too. Pumkins, corn, and farm animals. We went pumpkin pickin’, but didn’t come back with anything. LOL. The pumpkin patches weren’t that good to Long Island this year. Too much rain from what we were told. They were green & orange in color for some reason. We just weren’t feelin’ it this time, so we left the green & orange pumpkins behind this time. But we bought gorgeous yellow mums when we stopped at Briermere Farms for some pies. They have the best pies I think. A little pricey, but very tastey. They have this awesome “Peach Cream Pie”….yummy!  Here is one of the Mums we bought.  Can’t wait until it’s in full bloom in a couple of weeks probably.

Sorry for the not so great pictures this time.  Most were taken at night time, sorry about that.

Well thanks for stopping by everyone.  Again, sorry I have not been around much.  Still some personal stuff going on at home.  Everything is ok, but just a lot of things to deal with and stress of course.  But I’m hoping to get some “To-Do” things done this weekend, so please stop back soon for those posts.  Have a great day everyone!!!  :)
Anyone go pumpkin pickin’?  What do you pumpkins look like?
