A Weekend in Harrison Hot Springs, BC

After last week's birthday post from LA, we're back with another birthday post, this time celebrating Elaine's birthday! We headed to Harrison Hot Springs for a girls getaway with our other bestie Lindsay (from the blog Treasures and Travels) and had such a relaxing and fun trip.

Vancouver Trip to Harrison Hot Springs

Harrison Hot Springs is about a 2 hour road trip from Vancouver, and we stayed at the gorgeously retro Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa.  It was so fun to dress up a bit and enjoy a dinner in The Copper Room with a live jazz band and a stellar menu. 

We packed our dancing shoes, and had a ton of fun dancing to classics with the band and celebrating Elaine's birthday. How amazing is this light up dance floor?! 

Later that night we took a late-night dip in the resort's hot springs, and woke up to this incredible lake and mountain view in the morning from our room. The resort has five mineral-fed hot spring pools all kept at different temperatures, so you can warm up in a hot tub or cool down in a cooler pool, or go between both! 

After a buffet breakfast at the resort we headed down to the lake, which has the cutest little pier. It was picture-perfect with the mountains and water and trees, just like our weekend at Harrison!

Things to Do in Abbotsford, BC

On our drive back to Vancouver, we stopped for coffee at Old Hand Coffee in Abbotsford, BC. We love this little bakery and coffee shop and have been wanting to try it forever! 

They serve local Bows and Arrows coffee from Vancouver Island, and the Dutch baked goods are all baked in-house and are soooo delicious. There's even some gluten-free options, which makes for the prettiest pit-stop to hang out with your besties on a road trip. 

While in Abbotsfoord, we also stopped by Spruce Collective, which is home to an awesome assortment of local and vintage goods, ranging from home and kitchen goods to dresses and scarves. 


They also have a new vintage market just up the street full of thrifted finds which you should check out if you're in the area! Harrison Hot Springs was the perfect weekend getaway for us, and don't forget to tag us on Instagram in any of your photos if you visit! 

Thanks for reading! Coming up next week: Montana! Pack your snowboots.
