Reno, Nevada: The Peppermill Resort's Tuscany Suites


A couple of weeks ago, Cary and I took a road trip to Reno.  It was something that we had on the back burner for a long time.  The weather was nice, and work had slowed down enough for us to take a few days off.  The drive took around 7 hours.


We chose to stay at The Peppermill.  Cary had been there before he met me, and really enjoyed it.  He noted how much the City of Reno had expanded over the past 12 years or so.  When he was there before, The Peppermill was out by itself.  Not anymore!

The place is HUGE, like a Las Vegas casino.  There was a lot of walking involved to get back and forth to our room.  The facility was beautiful, and the staff was friendly and efficient.


We selected a room in the newer Tuscany Suites, on the top floor.  The price was $111.00 per night (plus tax and add-ons), though many times you can get it for less than that.  We got a smoking room, because it would take forever to walk down the hall, take elevator and make your way outside. Cary smokes outside at home, and smoked in the bathroom here.  I brought candles and air fresheners.  When we entered the room for the first time, we couldn't even tell that it was a smoking room.


One thing that I really liked about the hallway, besides how pretty it was, was the way that there was an entry before the room doors.  Anybody walking by could not look into your room if the door was open.

The Suite:



Our $111.00 per night bought us 665 square feet of luxury.  There was a living room, bedroom and a huge bathroom.  There were three t.v.'s, a beautiful view and so much attention to detail.  They didn't skimp on towels or on anything.  It was really neat.  Plus it was very quiet.  We never heard anybody on either side of us.



Look at all that marble, wood and those pretty paintings!


You won't find a fridge or a microwave in these rooms.  Don't even pick up the snacks, unless you want to buy them.  There is a sensor that gives you 45 seconds to put them back down or you are charged.  There is booze in their little fridge if you want to buy it.  It is cheaper to bring your own though.


It was so beautiful!  I loved hanging out in this room.


The Living Room:


The living room was so pretty.  There were three chairs and a leather couch.  I forgot to look and see if the couch was a hide-a-bed, but it probably was.  There were two tables, a dresser and a thick privacy curtain dividing the bedroom from the living area.  Isn't the carpet pretty too?







The Bathroom:


This room was huge.  I set up camp in here.  We brought a bunch of snacks, some food (the makings for PBJ sandwiches), a box of wine and some makings for cosmopolitans.  When you drive, you can overpack, and I do.

See the t.v. on the wall over by the lamp?
  

Not a bad place to have to go and smoke!


I enjoyed the jacuzzi tub.


There was also a huge tile shower, with a rainwater shower head.


The View:


We got a room on the top floor, with a view of the pool and the mountains.  It was really pretty.  The pool was still open, and is heated geothermally.  I will do another post on it.  We didn't go in, but many were enjoying it.






I will post more about The Peppermill over the next week.  It was really a very nice place to stay, and if you are going to Reno, I do recommend it.

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

Check this stuff out below:

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video


Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
