Unique Travel Experiences for a Memorable Mother’s Day
After over a year of virtual schooling and social distancing, there’s no question that moms deserve an extra-special Mother’s Day gift this year. No gift seems more appropriate to the times than a weekend getaway to a California inn. Several CABBI members are offering lodging packages and unique gift ideas just for Mother’s Day. Or, choose to purchase a CABBI gift certificate, which is good at nearly 200 CABBI member inns around state.
Double H Ranch Bed & Breakfast at Stonepine Estate
A Kentucky Derby-themed weekend in Carmel Valley might be the odds-on favorite for this year’s Mother’s Day gift. Double H Ranch Bed & Breakfast is offering a Mother’s Day Weekend package that includes a two-night stay and a three-course Mother’s Day luncheon. Mom (and her guest) will also receive a choice between free transportation to Carmel Valley Village to explore the art galleries and tasting rooms, a choice of lunch for two, or sampling of small bites at Stonepine Estate’s California Country Grille. The package is available May 8-10, 2021. All-inclusive rates start at $1150 for two nights, with a third night offered at 50% off. Call 831-298-7484 or email email@example.com to reserve.
Skip the typical flowers and chocolates and instead make one of the most important women in your life the star of her own show. Along with a discounted room rate, the Mother’s Day Bubbles & Brunch package at San Luis Obispo’s Hotel Cerro features a $100 property credit good at the hotel’s Spa Cerro full-service spa or its on-site Brasserie SLO restaurant. On Mother’s Day (May 9, 2021), the restaurant will host a special Moms & Mimosas Mother’s Day dining experience. The Bubbles & Brunch package is available through May 13, 2021. A two-night minimum stay is required. Use promo code “LUVUMOM” when booking online.

A hotel gift certificate of at least $870 provides mom and a companion with round trip ferry tickets on Catalina Express, a two night’s stay in a lovely garden view room, continental breakfast in the tranquil, koi pond garden, and free taxi service to and from the hotel. Add to the gift certificate amount to ensure upgrades to rooms with balconies or ocean views.
