A Much Needed Getaway

This is a long-overdue post but I guess it’s the perfect time to share about this particular trip of mine… to refresh the internet with pretty pictures hehe. Back in November 2019 my husband and I went on a mini vacation to celebrate our second anniversary. We didn’t go too far away because I had school, but we are lucky to live surrounded by beautiful places here in Southern California. The place that we visited is called Running Springs and it took us just 1,5 hours drive away from our house.

The theme for our vacation this time was simply to relax, so we chose to stay in a tiny cabin called Getaway. Check out their website to see what they got to offer.

Anyway, back to my story – we left our house in the morning and started our mini road trip. Although the mountains is quite a popular vacation spot for Angelenos, I haven’t been because I personally prefer the beach. The drive was scenic and we also managed to stop by Lake Gregory Regional Park along the way for a walk. It was pretty and because it’s low season, there was not many people, it almost felt like we had the place for ourselves!

We were only able to check in to our cabin at 3 PM, everything was done remotely as we were given the instructions to check in via text message and email. This is what our cabin looks like… it was small but we had everything we needed! The bed was very comfortable, there was a mini “kitchen”, hot showers and toilet! Seriously it was beyond our expectation.

We already prepared to cook our meals so brought groceries and since we were only going to stay for 1 night, the space was perfect for us. We made steak for dinner and just relax for the rest of the night… I think we fell asleep at some point, only to wake up and see that it was snowing! I remember it was around 6 AM when we first saw the snow showers. We wanted to go out but kept procrastinating and when we realized it, the snow was already thick! Just like that. Wow.

We stayed inside until it was close to check out time and managed to explore the area a little bit, including playing in the snow. We noticed that our car was stuck in the snow so we called the management and not long after someone came to help us shovel the snow out. They were very responsive and helpful, kudos to the Getaway team.

All in all it was a very much needed getaway, we loved our stay and definitely will be going back when things go back normal.

  1. I also enjoy a relaxing weekend trip somewhere Chris, where we don’t have to be in a ‘rush’ mode to try to see all the stuffs/attractions in the place we visit. Just to stay at a nice place, enjoy the moment, and to actually take things (super) slow! πŸ˜€

    Ahh I miss the time when we can travel!!

  2. aku bisa membayangkan berada dalam tiny cabin, dikelilingi pepohonan di sekitar, dan pagi2 disambut salju πŸ™‚ pengalaman yang luar biasa indah pastinya ya πŸ™‚ aku juga lg kepikiran mau nyobain naik MRT nanti setelah situasinya aman kata pemerintah πŸ™‚ let’s see πŸ˜€

      1. πŸ˜€ semoga ya. yang penting yang ada sekarang ini disukuri ya πŸ™‚ karna kalo dicari yang enggak ada takutnya malah sakit πŸ˜€ minggu lalu aku masuk RS karna stroke like syndrome πŸ˜€ salah satu penyebabnya kayaknya karna udah kelamaan enggak ketemu orang banyak, dampak dari social distancing corona πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
        tapi sekarang udah baikan koq πŸ™‚

        stay safe & strong ya christa

  3. tiny cabinnya bagus ya Mbak Christa….apalagi melihat tempat tidurnya yang kliatan empuk dan nyaman banget.
    Aku pun lebih menikmati liburan yang santai dan ga perlu buru-buru.

  4. Whoa this place comes up many time in my targeted instagram ad! Or was it because I signed up for their give away one time? πŸ˜€ Anyhoo, looks like a perfect getaway. My kind of snow holiday – meaning I can enjoy the snow from the comfort of my multi layer blankets.
