... going back to their house for drinks, where Ellie announced she was pregnant! Celebrations and bubbly followed, along with random (unsuccessful) beer-run adventures and random Vimeo videos of a guy called Al that...can't really be explained...

Ours featured a hot tub, fire place, wrap-around porch and beautiful views of mountain forest. Horse riding, wagon trails and a intimate chapel are all perks of Forest Hills but we opted for the hiking trials instead. Breakfast is included but dinners can be reserved. Well worth saving ...
