The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge has been voted one of the best places to stay in City, with good reason. The AAA Four Diamond-rated resort feels like a vacation destination all its own. The resort is part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts and includes 200 guest rooms and 14 suites ($199-459 d) in the main hotel, a separate 36-room luxe lodge, and a private four-bedroom cottage ($1,500). Although there are pillow-top beds, marble bathrooms with soaking tubs, posh robes in the walk-in closets, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the golf course, the rooms are not the main draw; it’s the upscale amenities that receive accolades. In just one night at the 2,000-acre resort, it’s possible to lounge around the outdoor swimming pool, take a tai chi class in the fitness center, experience a DiVine Wine facial in the spa, and admire the artwork in the on-site gallery. The resort is also a golfer’s paradise. At the 18-hole Golf Club at Ballantyne, which has been called one of the Best Places to Play by Golf Digest, the Dana Radar Golf School offers lessons to golfers of all levels. There’s no need to leave the resort for dinner. The Gallery Restaurant emphasizes farm-to-table cuisine and the adjacent bar has the largest single-malt Scotch collection in the state. Ask the bartender to recommend one of the 43 varieties or sign up for Flight School, in which guests who sample all 43 Scotches (there is no time limit) are awarded a personalized decanter that holds their Scotch of choice behind the bar for future visits. One night at the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge is all it takes to learn why Travel + Leisure readers voted the resort one of the world’s best hotels.
Leveredge, but hindered by Divine Providence undertook the teaching of Baltimore Map Tourist Attractions those Indians, and hath continued in the work with good success to this day; him we Baltimore Map Tourist Attractions ordained Pastor: and one of the Indians, named Jude, should have been ordained Ruling-Elder, but being sick at that time, advice was given that he should be ordained with the first opportunity, as also a Deacon to manage the present Sabbath-Day Collections, and other parts of that Office in their season. The same day also were they, and such of their Children as were present, baptized. From them we passed over to the Vineyard, where many were added to the Church both men and women, and were baptized all of them, and their Children also with them; we had the Sacrament of the Lords Supper celebrated in the Indian-Church, and many of the English-Church gladly joyned with them; for which cause it was celebrated in both languages. On a day of Fasting and Prayer, Elders were ordained, two Teaching-Elders, the one to be a Preacher of the Gospel, to do the Office of a Pastor and Teacher; the other to be a Preacher of the Gospel, to do the Office of a Teacher and Pastor, as the Lord should given them ability and opportunity; Also two Ruling-Elders, with advice to ordain Deacons also, for the Service of Christ in the Church. Things were so ordered by the Lord’s guidance, that a Foundation is laid for two Churches more; for first, these of the Vineyard dwelling at too great a distance to enjoy with comfort their Sabbath-communion in one place, Advice was given them, that after some experience of walking together in the Order and Ordinances of the Gospel, they should issue forth into another Church; and the Officers are so chosen, that when they shall do so, both Places are furnished with a Teaching and Ruling-Elder. Also the Teacher of the Praying Indians of Nantuket, with a Brother of his were received here, who made good Confessions of Jesus Christ; and being asked, did make report unto us that there be about ninety Families who pray unto God in that Island, so effectual is the Light of the Gospel among them.
