Forget the ties, tools, and tech-savvy gadgets. Now that Mother’s Day has come and gone and Mom is still basking in the love, it’s time to focus on giving dear Dad a Father’s Day to remember. He rarely asks for recognition, a pat on the back, or some time away with just his buddies for all he does.
On June 16th, show Dad how much he is adored with a Mancation full of his favorite pastimes such as tasting tours, Bourbon trails, and sports-bonding time with the guys! Pack Dad’s bags and send him off on an unforgettable bed and breakfast getaway where there’s sure to be the perfect recreational or relaxing activity to suit him.
1851 Historic Maple Hill Manor B&B, Springfield, KY
Isn’t Dad an expert at always finding the most comfortable seat in the house? Keeping with this tradition, Dad will have the most cozy seat in a limo as he enjoys Kentucky’s famous Bourbon Trail while staying at 1851 Historic Maple Hill Manor B&B located in Springfield, KY. Your #1 Dad will be the VIP at this B&B touring Kentucky Cooperage (where Bourbon Barrels are made.) A gourmet dinner, followed by a box of Bourbon chocolates while sitting in a comfortable rocking chair (of course!) on the inn’s front porch, is just what Dad needs.
At Camellia Inn located in Healdsburg, CA, Dad and his closest buds will get to fulfill their dreams of being the ultimate outdoorsman when they get to enjoy fly fishing, rock climbing, kayaking, and hot-air ballooning. After their adventures, they can slow things down a bit with a day of wine tasting by bike, car, jeep, or fire truck. With nine luxury rooms fit for a King (Dad can even enjoy an on-site massage therapy in his room), he’ll have no problem relaxing each night after a day filled with great adventures, great company, and great food, including a breakfast this is “right-off-the-farm” fresh.
If your Dad owns a “Kiss the Cook” apron, he’ll feel right at home taking the hands-on group cooking classes at Sherwood Forest Bed & Breakfast in Saugatuck, MI. Chef Jim LaPerriere has teamed up with the inn to give guests first-hand instructions in creating delicious dishes that span the globe, and satisfy all gastronomic cravings. Dad can fill up on the chef’s secrets, and your stomach will reap the benefits the next time Dad dons his apron to cook for you!
The pool at the Hoyt House, Amelia Island, FL
Proud of his all-around sports guy moniker, Dad will be in seventh heaven at Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast located in Amelia Island, FL. Whether it’s fishing, skeet or sport clay shooting, or golfing, Dad will have his choice of fun, outdoor activities to keep him busy. After, he can soothe away any pains in the heated pool & spa. Ending his day settling into the zero-gravity lounge chairs that make you feel as though you are floating on air, Dad (with beer in hand) will feel very relaxed, very spoiled, and very much loved.
Don’t know what to get for the man who has everything? Why not surprise Dad with a chance to design his own getaway courtesy of a BnBFinder Travel Gift Certificate. He can choose when and where he wants to go from over 1,500 bed and breakfasts and inns. Visit our “Mancations” Pinterest board for some ideas on fun-filled B&B activities just for Dad.
