Welcome to Rocheport!

Population 208..This past Friday, Dan and I took off for a little weekend getaway. We arrived at our destination, Rocheport, early Friday evening.

After we checked in, Dan did a little reading up on our town..
while I unpacked.
Friday night we had our first cooking class,
It was absolutely delicious!
On the weekends, the general store is also the local bar once 7 pm rolls around. After dinner, we walked down the street to hear the band and have a night cap.
Saturday morning we took a little hike through the woods,
we checked out the antique stores in town, where I found some great things!!

Saturday afternoon we had a tour of the local winery, a wine tasting, and somehow, a case of wine!
After an afternoon nap, Saturday night we cooked another delicious dinner, then went back to the local bar. We are now officially bar flies are the Rocheport General Store and Bar.
It was such a nice, quiet, and relaxing weekend. A much needed getaway to recharge our batteries.

Time to plan another trip!!


  1. What a wonderful weekend! It is nice to take time just for yourselves away from the kids! Cooking classes, a winery tour and antique shopping sounds like my idea of a fabulous day!

  2. I would give anything to do something as fantastic as that with my mister. Sure wish we lived close to Rocheport.

    Glad to hear you had a nice time, Bar Fly! :)

  3. That looks like an amazing weekend! Rich is into cooking lately too. I bet he would love a cooking class or 2... You got my wheels turning! :-)

  4. That sounds like an amazing weekend! I'm glad y'all had a wonderful time!

  5. What a fun and romantic weekend! You and your husband make such a striking couple.
