Did you know Grandparents’ Day was established by a woman who had 43 grandchildren? That woman is Marian McQuade, and in 1973 she wanted to honor grandparents for all they do for their children and grandchildren.
Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts, and they conjure up good feelings and fond memories. On September 8th, enjoy some quality time with your grandparents, or spend the day volunteering with the elderly in your area in commemoration of Grandparents’ Day. But you won’t be the only one celebrating them; B&Bs across the country also have Grandma and Grandpa on the mind!
The Holladay House located in Orange, VA, is offering 15% off their stay between September 1st – 12th. Grandpa and Grandma will get to savor an elegant two-course breakfast before stepping back in time with a free tour of the Orange Commercial Historic District, home to the James Madison Museum and the historic Train Station. A choice of three bedtime snacks will be delivered to their door.
A relaxing getaway awaits them in one of four cozy guest rooms at the McDowell-Nearing House located in Muncie, IN. The inn is providing a 10% discount on one night, or 20% off two nights or longer during the weekday. Grandpa and Grandma can enjoy a cup of warm coffee by the gas fireplace before taking a stroll over to Ball State University. While there they can visit the David Owsley Museum of Art, one of the nation’s largest university art museums.
First Farm Inn
If Grandpa and Grandma want to spend time with the grandkids, the First Farm Inn located in Petersburg, KY, has a family-friendly getaway just for them. The day will start off with a delicious all-you-can-eat breakfast before everyone makes their way to the barn for a visit with the cows and goats, and the stables for a horse grooming and riding lesson. The whole family can gather for a movie later in the evening, or enjoy game night courtesy of the inn’s collection of board games.
Grandma and Grandpa are beloved for all they do and the love they share. So on Grandparents’ Day help them celebrate in a big way with some well-deserved R&R!
