A few weekends ago, we escaped for an amazing weekend to Doral Arrowwood Hotel Conference Center in Rye Brook — just half an hour away from us.
Doral Arrowwood is nestled in the heart of 114 acres and offers an array of resort activities to relax and unwind. Seasonal activities for the entire family include sunrise yoga, outdoor pool play, family movies, bocce ball and much much more. The itinerary possibilities are truly endless.
This hotel offers several golf courses, tennis, a gym, an arcade, indoor/outdoor pool, a restaurant and pub, daily activities like yoga or family movies, and more.
We got to enjoy their Halloween Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze Package they are offering right now, until November 12.

After we got settled in, we headed down to the Atrium Restaurant for dinner. We all decided that we wanted to eat the buffet – because the choices where endless! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many desserts at a buffet.
After a good night sleep, we enjoyed the yummy breakfast buffet in the Atrium Restaurant overlooking the golf course.
Then it was time for Landon to check out the indoor/outdoor pool. I knew this would be the highlight of the stay for him, because he loves swimming so much, and this pool is pretty amazing.
I actually joined Landon the next day, and we had the whole heated outdoor pool to ourselves.
After I watched Landon for a little while, I headed to the gym…
…while Don watched him.
We ordered in lunch — such a treat — Landon got to play with a Wii, we went to the arcade again, Don and Landon played basketball, and we hung out in the room until it was time for dinner.
“Look. Mom, I’m Rudolph!”
After having dinner at the Pub, we were driven to the Blaze, where we saw 7,000 hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns. It’s so impressive!
We enjoyed this breathtaking display while walking through the 18th-century riverside landscape at the Van Cortland Manor.
There were hundreds of families there.
We got up late, had breakfast, and went for another swim before we headed back home.
We had such a lovely weekend together that went by way too fast. We didn’t want to leave! Even though we were close to home, it was such a nice getaway.
