Rosen Shingle Creek is situated on 230 beautifully landscaped acres. Everything, from housekeeping to maintenance, is carefully orchestrated to create the ultimate experience for guests. I don't think anything was out of place anywhere on the property during our visit. If it was, it was immediately taken care of as quietly as possible.
The linens were superior quality, perfectly smooth and inviting. I couldn't wait to slip between the Egyptian Cotton sheets each night and wake feeling ready to take on the world. Or at least the theme parks, the crowds, and miles of walking. Extra pillows could be found on a shelf in the closet. Each night, little gift bags containing two chocolates were placed on the beds. They made sure we would have the sweetest dreams! A chair by the window created the perfect place to read just before bedtime. The desk gave me the space I needed to check my emails and prepare my blog features. There was a safe in the closet to store my laptop during the day. I found a mini fridge in the dresser below the 32" flat screen tv.
The parlor was large and featured a gorgeous bathroom just off the entry. A tiled shower with a beautiful glass door made getting ready each morning a real pleasure. If I could have one wish, I would have wished for body sprays!
With 14 restaurants and lounges, there is something for everyone. The luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek offers guests a wide selection of cuisine. Dine at an award-winning steakhouse, fine dining Italian bistro, an elaborate buffet and à la carte menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between — all in the beautiful setting of turn-of-the-century, Spanish revival architecture.
We also spent each evening here and experienced many new things! The two to three bite appetizers were beautiful to look at and they tasted amazing. The desserts were my favorites. They were visually stunning and the flavors were intense. Deep, dark, and sensuous chocolates were among my favorites. Some were topped with fresh fruits while others were topped with exquisite chocolates. Sometimes we were lucky and both ended up on top!
This was definitely an experience we will all remember. Sam and Logan experienced something new each day and they loved it all so much! Sam was convinced that we had found a new home. He knows a great thing when he sees it! We did find a home away from home!
