Amid Summer's Inn Bed and Breakfast Review and $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway...


My husband and I are really excited to tell you about a fabulous place to stay located in Cedar City Utah! It's called Amid Summer's Inn Bed and BreakfastThis is the perfect place for that getaway you have been wanting to escape away to!



First, let me introduce you to the fantastic innkeepers Gary and Charlene!

Gary and Charlene have been interior designers for the past 38 years. Gary's exquisite workmanship shows throughout the Inn with beautiful marble, stone, granite, and tile creations. Special attention has gone into decorating each individual room. Charlene's love for design shows as each room takes on a distinctive personality and flavor. Having owned a cake and candy store, Charlene enjoys making specialty candies in her spare time while she and Gary delight in creating new dishes for their guests.

Their passion and desire is to have their guests enjoy a memorable experience in the elegance of an earlier era. They are amazing and made sure our stay was peaceful and relaxing!

Next, let me tell you a little about this spectacular inn...


Amid Summer's Inn Bed and Breakfast is a lovely 6000 square foot  Historic English Tudor with romantic decor. It sits on a quiet, old-fashioned, tree-lined street, two doors from a gourmet restaurant and one and one half blocks from the Tony Award-Winning Utah Shakespearean Festival. It is also centrally located between Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks Monument National Park, Kolob Canyon, Parowan Gap Petroglyphs, Kanarraville water falls, and Brian Head Ski Resort.

First, we entered the parlor... (you can click on the pictures to see them larger)



It features an original Rococo sofa and chairs dating from the 1800's. Wow, what a great first impression of the Inn this room gives you as you enter it!

Here's the beautiful stairs going up to our room...


We stayed in the Windsor Castle room...




We love the gorgeous bedding, it is so elegant...



The jetted tub and large roomy shower were also awesome!



The bed was not only beautiful but it was also extra comfortable! I loved the original paintings and decor throughout our room. The towels were heavenly soft and they smelled so nice and fresh. Our room had a nice TV and soft chairs to sit in while we visited with each other. Everything was perfect in our amazing room and we loved it!

We also toured other rooms, here is one of our favorites...





I love stained glass windows, the Inn has some fabulous ones! Check out the one in the Peacock room...


In the morning we had the best breakfast ever in their elegant, formal dining room...



We woke up to a wonderful smelling breakfast which Gary and Charlene are famous for! Our gourmet breakfast feast included a very yummy quiche, seasoned potatoes, bacon drizzled with maple syrup, fresh fruit bowl, yogurt, granola, homemade pastries, and homemade orange juice. Everything was really delicious, and we loved it!

The incredible innkeepers let me share their guests most requested recipe with each one of my lucky readers...


Three Cheese Crust-less Quiche

1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup cream or milk, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 6 large eggs, 1 (3 oz.) package softened cream cheese, 2 cups cottage cheese, 1 lb. cubed Monterey Jack cheese.

That is a very fancy Bed and Breakfast and it looks very different from my causal, comfortable decorating style.

I like this encourageing verse from the Bible. Joshua 1:9(KJV)

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

You posted such beautiful, tempting pictures. I am in love with the bed canopy decor.

Sandra VanHoey said...

I had to add another email on FB in order for the Rafflecopter to let me sign in through Facebook. I wrote them and nobody seemed to know what was wrong and how it could be fixed so I had to create a new email on Facebook. I still have both emails on my FB acct. but it is signing me in finally on Rafflecopter & giveaway tools but with another email address, same name. I am only doing daily entries on giveaways I have already entered so it doesn't give me extra entries in this. So sorry for the confusion and glad it is fixed finally
