Nestled in the heart of our unpretentious Highlands lies Old Edwards Inn and Spa, a four-star resort that has become a favorite respite for politicians, celebrities and the otherwise well-heeled.
Look on any “Best of” list of the finest resorts in the world, and you’re more than a little likely to see Old Edwards featured. That’s an impressive feather in the cap for our town of three stoplights.
And while it’s true that the pleasure of living in Highlands is blessing enough, once a year Old Edwards offers a bonus reason to love being a local. January through March, during their “We Love Locals” promotion, you can experience Old Edwards luxury at your-grandmother-wouldn’t-be-that-generous discounts.
Sunday through Thursday stays at the acclaimed resort are just $95 per night. Champagne is handed to you when you arrive, bed linens to swaddle for, and the bathrooms have — pay attention – Heated. Marble. Floors.
Now for the mildly lucky, that would be a great day. But we live on the Plateau. Our address grants extraordinary entitlement. Dine at the farm-to-table Madison’s Restaurant for lunch or dinner, and receive a whopping 20 percent off your entire check. Go for the foie gras…and the venison…or the duck…and you can’t leave without trying the chocolate chip pie. Well, ok, you might need several visits.
On Sundays, beginning January 11, Madison’s is offering Half Price Wine Selections. Curated by Sommelier Curt Christiansen, this list promises the finest of wines at unprecedented value.
Don’t stop counting the many perks of zip code perfection too quickly. For just $95, celebrate your residency with a 50-minute spa treatment at Condé Nast Traveler’s #2 Top Hotel Spa in The United States. Also during “We Love Locals” for the first time in 2015, you can participate in the wellness and fitness classes at the fitness center for a per-class fee, or schedule a spa treatment for free use of the equipment and classes.
Old Edwards “We Love Locals” promotions are offered January through March, Sundays through Thursdays. For more information, visit www.oldedwardsinn.com/locallove or call (828) 787-2625.
