What Others Say About Us

The morning after the snowfall, I took an early walk and took some beautiful pictures of and around the property. The freshly fallen snow looked so amazing on the surrounding trees. We had a great time and will definitely be back soon.

Thank you so much for everything this weekend!! The meal & wine on Friday Night were wonderful & it was really great chatting with you. We were very impressed with the house & had an awesome time! We would really like to come back again sometime this year.

We’re sitting around discussing how much fun we’re having and talking about rebooking. Everyone here is having a great time and they have nothing but PRAISE for the house, the amenities and your hospitality.

I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful getaway weekend you have provided for us. Your house is so beautiful and welcoming. You have thought of everything – even a massage chair for when you are a bit sore from scrapbooking all day long (we loved it!). We fully enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait to visit again. I just hope you understand how much we appreciate your hospitality

I just wanted to thank you for helping us escape from our everyday lives for a weekend. All of us had a wonderful time and found it hard to leave your beautiful house. It seemed like you have thought of everything a person, especially a woman, could ever want. It felt more like a “home” than a hotel to me. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Blooming Escapes’ Mission

As consummate givers, women continually offer their time and energy to others, leaving their own needs for rest and relaxation unmet. But women need to take time to recharge their minds, souls and bodies, sustain bonds with friends and find an outlet to fuel their creative fire; if they don’t, internal chaos ensues, stress builds, health suffers and relationships flounder. That’s why Blooming Escapes was founded. Proprietor Kerry Griffin has made it her mission to help women help themselves without feeling guilty. By offering girls’ getaways and creative retreats, she is enabling women to commit uninterrupted time to scrapbook, quilt, bead, stamp, etc. and be with others to feed their creative soul and learn from one another or just take the time to recharge, re-energize, rejuvenate and refresh.

My Story

I left Corporate America to be able to dedicate more time to work on my husband’s small landscaping business and to our two young boys. Moving through each day in automatic, I missed the creative and fiscal challenges and responsibilities of my career, but I knew I didn’t want to return to the corporate world. Seeking flexibility, the ability to set and achieve my own goals, and a way to rekindle my creative soul, I knew an entrepreneurial venture was the way to go.

I frequently brainstormed ideas for my own business. To me, the perfect business was one that would allow me to feel good about what I was providing and something that would help others. Finally, the idea of a girls’ getaway retreat, where women could create together and feed one another’s creative soul, sprang to life. My business is one where women can relax, play, have fun with their friends, refresh and rejuvenate their spirit, and return home with a new outlook, attitude and balance of life.
