Mother’s Day in Georgia: 4 of the Best Ways to Spoil Mom
Treat Her to a Delicious Dinner
Sometimes, material objects don’t do moms justice. How can we communicate how much these special women mean to us with just a card and a candle? If mom isn’t the materialistic type, treat her to dinner instead! Head to Glen-Ella Springs Inn’s award-winning restaurant for a Southern, fine dining meal she won’t soon forget. Come on by for Mother’s Day weekend and mention this blog to score her a hand-crafted dessert (on the house)! Be sure to check out our menu and make your reservation on OpenTable in advance.
Go Shopping Together at Unique, Local Stores
Did someone say “shopping?” North Georgia is dotted with several noteworthy antique stores, boutiques, and concept shops—all perfect for satisfying mom’s shopaholic. Whether you take her out to pick out her own gift or simply want to spend some time together, head to Clarkesville, Georgia, and the surrounding areas for a dose of retail therapy. Here are some of the North Georgia stores you’ll want to put on the itinerary:
- Mark of the Potter
- Rahab’s Rope
- Elizabeth and Company
- Old Sautee Store and Market
- Homestead House Primitives.
Accompany Her on an Adventure
If mom is the type to seek out new, fun-filled experiences, North Georgia is the perfect place for her to spend Mother’s Day! Book our Adventure Package and treat her to an incredible, plein-air excursion in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Choose between a horseback trail ride and zipline adventure, then look forward to a yummy dinner at our on-site restaurant at the end of a Mother’s Day well spent.
Want to show her how much you care this Mother’s Day? Your first step should be to book a stay at Glen-Ella Springs Inn! Or, since moms are busy ladies, reserve a Glen-Ella Springs Inn Gift Certificate so she can select her own dates. We offer one of the most loved lodging experiences in the region, and we have the Select Registry membership to prove it. Our rooms and premium amenities bring guests back time and time again, and our restaurant pleases even the pickiest of palates. More importantly, though, our family is here to give yours the warmest welcome possible. We’ll make sure that your stay with us is truly remarkable every time!
