Put a “Mom-cation” in Motion

You’ve been busy putting everyone else first during the holidays. Next, it’s time to rest, relax and rejuvenate at your own pace.

 

When the calendar hits 2019, it’s Mom-cation time. Gather some friends and sneak away for a midweek getaway, or plan a themed weekend at French Lick Resort. Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth, a nose for wine, your heart set on a spa day, or simply a yearning to try something new, you’re sure to find something that’s just your speed.

 

So which category do you fit into? There’s a Mom-cation to fit every interest.

Invest (and save) in Self-Care

Treat yourself to a spa day, and keep a little more cash in your pocket. Get 10% off a treatment booked Sunday through Thursday in January or February at the French Lick and West Baden Spas.

 

Relax, stay a while and cash in on a deal to maximize your Mom-cation. Use the Stay More, Save More offer and get up to 30% off the best available rate when you book three or more nights. It’s the best way to treat yourself to the getaway you’ve had your heart set on.

Feed Your Sweet Tooth

If you call yourself a chocolate lover, sample to your heart’s content at our 11th annual Chocolate Festival featuring dozens of unique chocolate creations. Or, indulge in a Wine & Dessert Soirée under the West Baden Springs Hotel dome and raise a glass to a trio of house-made desserts.

 

On Chocolate Lover’s Weekend (February 9-10 and 16-17), French Lick Winery and the other wineries included in the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail will offer complimentary wine tastings paired with a selection of chocolate treats.  

Cheers To You

On weekends at West Baden Springs Hotel, there’s always an occasion to raise a glass. The best method? Immerse yourself in the Wine Experience Weekend. Delicious food, wine education presentations and chef demos with wine as the rightful star of the show.

 

Whether your taste is more savory or sweet, the Wine Pairings or Wine & Dessert Soirée are both elegant ways to sit down and savor life. And if you’re ready to shake things up, Mixology Class gives you the stories (and samples) of your favorite cocktails.

Explore Your Creative Side
