With the holidays on the horizon, many of us are beginning to ponder gift options for our friends and family.We want to give the people we love something special. We want them to have something that will be appreciated and remembered, and something that won’t eventually end up in a landfill. It’s a tall order, but we have an idea.
Give a night or two at our Finger Lakes Region Bed and Breakfast.
This is a gift anyone will appreciate, no matter their age or situation. Yet we have found it to be particularly cherished by parents of young children. For these couples, a weekend at our Finger Lakes Region Bed and Breakfast without their children is a slice of heaven. They just need someone to think of it for them – and someone to watch their kids.
For parents of young children, a romantic weekend is a rare event. Let’s face it, a date is a rare event; 24 – 48 hours away from the kids is unthinkable. Yet a night or two away can do wonders for the self and for the relationship.
Children are a gift. They are delightful and cuddly and funny and fascinating and sweet. Parents enjoy being with their children, and in truth, many parents never think of leaving their kids for any stretch of time.
Yet children are also demanding, as they should be. Young children need constant vigil, constant supervision, constant interaction. Add work and housework, and it’s easy to see why so many parents suffer from exhaustion. An evening out may be fun, but it often seems more trouble than it’s worth. A weekend away holds the promise of long, deep sleep, uninterrupted conversations, the chance to read a book…
A weekend away is also a wonderful opportunity for grandparents, aunts and uncles, and close friends to bond with children. There is nothing like an early morning snuggle, a long afternoon building castles out of boxes, or a bedtime story. The children will remember this special time, and they will cherish it.
Our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast offers a Romantic Nights Package, a Celebration Package, and Wine Tasting Tours; any of these would be delightful additions to a weekend without the children. Yet even without add-ons, a night or two away with one’s spouse – and without the kids – is a gift that will be appreciated and remembered for years to come.
