We have some exciting news to share today. We here at HipTravelMama have been searching for the ultimate girlfriends’ getaway for hip moms that mirrors the content we love and share here, and have come up with an amazing getaway for you and your friends! We are thrilled to announce that our innagural Mama’cation will be in partnership with the luxurious Willows Lodge in the beautiful Woodinville, Washington Wine Country on November 13-14, 2010. Mama’cation is an weekend package of indulgence and offers the ultimate luxe getaway for you and your friends. The weekend will feature time for you to relax with friends; enjoy great food and wine; be inspired by fashion and beauty stylists; indulge in a mini-spa treatment; learn family travel tips to inspire holiday, winter and spring break travel; and chat with the experts at HipTravelMama.com about creating extraordinary travel experiences for the whole family. Best thing is, Willows Lodge is just a short 25-minute drive from Seattle and even closer if you live on the Eastside. What could be better?
Each year, our group of friends leave the kids with our husbands and embark on an annual pilgramage to hang out, shop, relax, slowly chew our food and enjoy a glass of wine (or two). For years we’ve affectionately called it Mom-cation. We select different locations every year, but mostly the criteria comes down to three things – good food and wine, shopping and luxe accomodations (with a spa). We suspect that many of you do the same with your friends and are nodding your heads as you read this! We know you are totally slammed right now with back-to-school, so we have pulled together the best in luxe style, food and wine and accomodations so you can simply invite your friends and let us do the rest of the work for you. We can think of no better first partner than the fabulous people at Willows Lodge who have graciously extended their beautiful property to serve as a sanctuary for Seattle-area moms to escape and unwind, if just for one blissful night!
We have a limited number of rooms available, so SAVE THE DATE of November 13-14, 2010, share with a friend and register before spots fill up! Because this is a package deal for friends you can not book this online, so please call Willows Lodge at (877) 424.3930, or email us and we will help you reserve your spot at Mama’cation 2010!
