My little girl turned 1 this week! I actually have not been away from her from one night. We brought her on a cruise, to the shore, and to an all inclusive. So we did get to go on a few vacations, but none alone. I have two children and for the weekend my Mother in Law is watching them while I go with my husband to Mount Airy Casino and Resort. Before kids we have been to different casinos and trips.
We dropped of the kids at my husband parents that live 50 minutes away, and off we went. When we got there the entrance was beautiful. We were excited for our weekend away. After an easy check in got to our room and we were more excited. The room was beautiful, clean, and had a nice view. The towels were extra soft, and the linens on the bed were just how we like them at home. There were no cribs in the room either! If you can’t tell already, we probably needed this weekend away. We have been to many other casinos but not this one (Vegas, Atlantis, AC, Mohegan Sun).
We ate at Guy Fieri’s Mt. Pocono Kitchen for breakfast. The fruit was amazing. My husband had the treat of having pulled pork on his breakfast which he loved. The coffee and relaxed feel was nice. Eating breakfast without kids was a treat for us too! We then went for a swim in the pool. The pool goes indoors and outdoors. After breakfast, we had the pool to ourselves.
Bistecca by Il Mulino was delicious. Our steak and lobster was cooked just how we asked for it. The atmosphere was great. Each person that is working here definitely it great at what they do.
My husband does happen to like to gamble. On the slot machines the first night he won $100! He got to a bonus game, which created many more bonus games. I got a mount airy casino card which gave me $10 of slot play. I lost the $10 but that is all. Before bed we had some soft serve ice cream. We both got peach which was really good.
The resort also has a lakefront 18-hole golf course. We don’t play golf but we enjoyed the view from the 6th floor of our room. There is nightly entertainment at the pool and Gypsies Nightclub and bar but we decided not to go. We did drink and loved what we got. I always like a rum and coke. My husband needs to be gluten free. They had a gluten free beer which he enjoyed.
The spa is not an after-thought. I had an amazing hour massage. They also have a eucalyptus steam room, and sauna. This was great for the cold that I went into the weekend with. While I was relaxing my husband played in the casino. We were both happy with our choice. We then got together and ate at the lunch buffet. I loved the soup and my husband liked the mussels the best.
