A Weekend in the Woods with Getaway
The day I discovered Getaway on Instagram, I booked a weekend in the woods on a whim. Maybe it was a sign that I had watched one too many episodes of Tiny House, Big Living on HGTV, but I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to go camping — er, glamping — in a modern tiny house.
To justify my impulsive purchase, I decided to surprise Brady with the trip for our anniversary. Fully committing to the outdoorsy theme, I also gave him a flannel, a set of Happy Camper mugs, and socks with toasted marshmallows embroidered on them. It was one of my most creative presents to date, if I do say so myself!

Despite it being a cold, rainy weekend, we had such an amazing anniversary! It was a simple weekend spent playing Scrabble, making s’mores, cuddling up under the covers and reflecting on our relationship. But without the distraction of technology, we were able to enjoy each other’s company completely uninterrupted.
GETAWAY ROUND TWO
Around six months later, Brady and I agreed that it was the perfect time for Getaway round two.
For this trip, we booked a cabin for four and invited my roommate and her boyfriend to stay with us. Once again, we encountered rainy weather — but at least it set the mood for a relaxing evening in. We spent the night cozied up in our cabin, playing Cards Against Humanity, listening to early 2000 throwback songs, chatting over shrimp tacos and sipping wine.
When we woke up the next morning, the rain had finally cleared and a sunny forecast meant hiking was in our future! Located in Stanardsville, Virginia, Getaway is an easy 15-minute drive to Shenandoah National Park, which is known for its incredible fall foliage. Although we tried our best to time the leaves just right, I think we may have just missed peak season by a weekend or two.
But you know what they say...
Third time’s the charm! Until next time, Getaway.
