Clay and I have only stayed in a bed and breakfast one time. Well, it was considered a bed a breakfast but breakfast was served in a common area of a winery, for all guests between 3 separate houses. The houses consisted of 2 – 3 bedrooms and the houses were shared like a bed a breakfast. I guess the only difference was that breakfast was served in a different building. It was really nice. If you’re looking for a relaxing Mother’s Day getaway I have 3 gorgeous bed and breakfasts for you to consider.
First up in our list of bed and breakfasts for a Mother’s Day getaway:
1. Caldwell House
MOM-IN-CHIEF package – Salisbury Mills, NY
Many moms have been working overtime since this pandemic began — home schooling, cooking, cleaning, chauffeuring, home ‘referee-ing,’ and wearing many other hats in addition to their already lengthy to do lists. Now the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast has created a getaway just to pamper these Mom-In-Chiefs. “Everyone really needs a break but I think moms in particular could use a little extra pampering this Mother’s Day,” said Dena Finneran, a mom, who co-owns the bed and breakfast with her husband, John. “Our guests come tired and leave feeling renewed, and that’s exactly the experience we want for moms.”
