Both David and I are delighted and honored to be Temecula Creek Inn INNfluencers for the month of January. We received a complimentary stay at Temecula Creek Inn as part of the #INNfluencer program.
We’ve traveled to many parts of the world and will no doubt visit many more. We’ve also visited much of the USA. But we know there are so many more adventures to undertake stateside. There are countless places waiting for us to discover and enjoy. That’s especially so right here in our corner of the world. Southern California is a destination location in its own right. It’s on bucket lists of people the world over. And … we’re on a mission to see and do all we can, that we may not have already, right here in Southern California. Our own corner of the world!
Nearly everyone would enjoy a regular couples getaway. Not only is it exciting to get out and explore new places together, it’s also fun to return to familiar and favorite places. With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, we’d like to share our experience staying at the Temecula Creek Inn. It was relaxing, rejuvenating, and just might be the perfect Valentine getaway for you.It was just the two of us. No kids. No grandkids. Just us… and it was fabulous! It was the perfect couples getaway!
Temecula Creek Inn was a short drive for us to the South end of our little valley. Temecula is known for its vineyards, golf courses, hot air ballooning, various festivals, and casinos too. The award-winning Temecula Creek Inn actually has it’s own 27-Hole Golf Course. The landscape is covered with age-old oak trees and rolling greens.
The inviting entrance to the Temecula Creek Inn! Since 1967, the Inn has grown from its original Stone House to 130 rooms that have a golf course or woodsy views. We were greeted by a delightful staff that made us truly feel welcomed. They made sure to advise us of the many amenities available during our stay.
The lobby is complete with a refreshing water station, a cozy sitting area with a crackling fire. A warm fire warms the hearth … and heart!
The gift shop was a quaint place to browse for one-of-a-kind gifts for friends, family, home and garden, and… unique wedding gifts. You see… Temecula Creek Inn is home to a gorgeous wedding venue.
The sound of nearby waterfalls added to the relaxing ambience. If we didn’t know better, we could have imagined we were sitting in the middle of a mountain wilderness and not just a few miles from Downtown Temecula.
The rooms have a rustic vibe with a nature-inspired color palette.
Our room was complete with a sitting area, a desk area, and a high-speed wireless Internet connection.
A spacious full bathroom with water closet and all the extra ammenities one might need: hair dryer, soaps, shampoos, etc. We had all the comforts of home and wanted for nothing.
Take time to enjoy the heated patio outside the lobby, where you can visit or just sit quietly holding hands to the sounds of the running water fountain.
Enjoy a couples swim ….
… with towels at the ready ….
… or relax together in the spa. And take in the view!
Are you into working out together? Temecula Creek Inn has you covered with their Fitness Center. We’ve heard… a couple that lifts together, stays together. Ha!
We dined at the on site Cork | Fire Kitchen, which is awesome! Executive Chef Matthew Steffen is absolutely amazing!
The restaurant has ample seating and stunning views from the wall to wall vaulted window. And the waitstaff is wonderful. If you’re fortunate to have LoriAnne as your waitress… consider it your lucky day! Don’t miss our experience at Cork | Fire Kitchen and our delectable dishes.
Temecula Creek Inn is close to historic Old Town Temecula.
David says: What a wonderful couples getaway spot. And the drive for us was short and sweet. We wouldn’t have minded driving a longer distance to get here … but we didn’t have to! And with the Cork | Fire Kitchen within easy walking distance of our room, we couldn’t have asked for a better place to be together.
Cathi says: I can’t wait for our next stay at Temecula Creek Inn. I loved everything about it. The rustic vibe, the stunning views. And most of all the quiet. I loved feeling like it was just me and David for miles and miles.
