Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa's presidential suite is fit for a princess.

By Jan Walsh

Enjoy a romantic getaway without traveling at Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa. A stay at this award winning property offers the opportunity for spa treatments in the 12,000 square foot spa, breakfast in bed, lunch at The Clubhouse Restaurant, drinks at JT's, dinners at Brock's, and for golfers, the third longest golf course in the world, Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

My husband and I recently enjoyed such a fairy tale, which included a stay in the Cahaba Presidential Suite, located on the sixth floor. More than a suite, this place should be a condo. Double doors open to a massive foyer that leads to a two-story, beamed ceiling parlor and dining area, seating eight. Above the flickering gas flames of the fireplace is a flat screen television. The fireplace is flanked by built in bookcases housing a collection of the classics. Jewel tones of ruby reds and golden yellow tones of the rich carpets and plush upholstery contrast with the mahogany toned bookcases, mantle, and ceiling. Live green plants and colorful fresh flowers add a personal touch.
