There is nothing better in life than creating memories. For Ian’s birthday this year I was completely out of ideas for what to get the man who has everything. I decided a stay-cation would be the best bet. We love traveling as a family and Ian really loves sitting by a pool all day so a hotel would be the perfect choice. I packed up the family and we hit the road for Westlake, California. Westlake is just north of Los Angeles and East of Malibu. It is perfectly positioned so the town feels like it is always basking in the California Sunshine.
We stayed at the Westlake Village Inn. A cute boutique hotel with a Mediterranean vibe. The view of lush, green landscapes that seem to be never-ending, the enchanting lake, cobblestone paths, vineyards and beautiful gardens with lovely gazebos and charming arbors are enough to leave you captivated. The Inn is both a hotel with 141 well-appointed deluxe accommodations and a special event venue that caters to weddings, birthdays, meetings and other special occasions.
We spent Ian’s birthday weekend bike riding around the property, splashing in the beautiful round pool and dining at the finest restaurants. At Westlake Village Inn we celebrated Ian’s birthday dinner at Mediterrano. We enjoyed a bottle of wine, pasta and some delicious birthday cake! The last night there we visited Q Sushi in Westlake and enjoyed the freshest sushi dinner. Mia ate 3 plates of Salmon! It was the perfect ending to a great weekend! Hope you enjoy a look into our mini family vacation!
