Whether you’re a new mom, expecting your first little one, or currently enjoying the empty-nest life, you have something in common with many other moms: not nearly enough time for yourself.
…That’s where we come in
From a luxurious spa retreat on the coast of Lake Erie to a wine country weekend in the Sierra Foothills of California to an adventurous escape in Hawaii, the experiences are endless. And with Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time for some travel inspiration so you can get to booking and celebrate a little “me time”. We’ve rounded up 6 great mom-friendly getaways that will give you the R&R you so greatly deserve (at a B&B).
For the Thrill-Seeking Mom:
Limitless adventure awaits at the Holualoa Inn in Holualoa, HI. With the Big Island Adventure Package, the experience is almost too good to be true. Snorkel with Manta Rays in the crystal waters of Keauhou Bay, explore by flight and foot (yes, your Paradise helicopter pilot will fly you over the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in search of live lava flow!), enjoy a full aerial canopy tour on Kohala Zipline, stroll through a private nature reserve ending with a swim under a cascading waterfall, and experience mind-blowing new heights at the 14,000-foot summit of Mauna Kea for a picnic lunch while you enjoy a magnificent sunset, listen to the past tales of Hawaiian travelers, and sip hot cocoa during your star-show with an 11” Celestron telescope.
For the Mom Who Loves to be Pampered:
When a weekend getaway involves warm, jetted tubs, fireside massages, being scrubbed down with a deliciously aromatic salt scrub, and strategically placed hot stones, there’s nothing cliche about indulging in some much-needed relaxation time. The Hood River Spa at the Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins in Carson, WA offers a truly blissful spa experience catered to your specific needs, leaving you inevitably relaxed, rejuvenated, and can we just say…ready to take on the world.
For the Mom Who is Basically an Oenophile:
Set in the Sierra Foothills Wine Region of California, the Eden Vale Inn offers a godsend of a wine-loving moms dream package; Where you can sip on local winery favorites while being chauffeured around. Talk about luxury. All you have to do is sit back, relax, fill up your glass, and let your personal driver whisk you away for a day of tasting adventure.
For the Mom Who Could Rival Gordon Ramsay:
Ok… Or maybe for the mom who sometimes burns her toast but *thinks* she could one day rival Gordon. The Brandywine Cooking School at Hamanasset Bed & Breakfast in Chester Field, PA offers themed classes that allow students to dive into an immersive global, culinary experience; uncover the secrets to preparing a romantic meal, learn how to whip up a French dish (Mangez Bien!), and even take a culinary escape to the times of the Titanic where you’ll be guided through preparing an Escoffier-inspired, multi-course “final dinner” that was served in the first class salon on the maiden voyage.
For the Mom Looking to Find Her Inner Zen:
Here at BnBFinder, we don’t expect you to take on the world while juggling all of the amazing, difficult, sometimes stressful things moms inherit in their lives. If you’re looking to re-center and de-compress, you can’t get much closer to wellness nirvana than The Stanford Inn by the Sea‘s Mendocino Center for Living Well. The premier eco-resort takes their integrative and uniquely holistic approach to wellness pretty seriously: They combine their principle of “living well” as a state of mine with real-life, practical instruction with physical, mental, and spiritual guidance. It’s a one-stop-shop for restoration. Get your yoga or tai chi on with inspiring and dedicated instructors, experience a healing herb-derived Ayurvedic treatment, become mindful with the help of meditation and breathwork sessions, participate in nutrition classes, art therapy, and so much more.
For the Mom Who is Almost a Mom:
A babymoon is all about relaxation, and if the southern shore of Lake Erie wasn’t already serene or dreamy enough, the Lakehouse Inn & Winery offers moms-to-be a babymoon getaway package that ups the “wow” factor. It’s widely known that these pre-baby weekend trips both reconnect and de-stress, and this boutique resort allows for just that. Life is about to become busy, so treat yourself to some cozy accommodations, magnificent Northeastern Ohio sunsets, full breakfasts in the morning, and, of course, a pre-natal massage, seasonal pedicure, and, of course, some non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
