Babymoons are a relatively new trend that we have seen grow in popularity over the last few years. Just like a honeymoon, expectant parents treat themselves to a pre-baby getaway of pampering. Today we received yet another photo of a new little bundle of joy delivered to one of the couples who spent their “Babymoon” at the High Pointe Inn. We love getting these photos and seeing the happy faces of new parents.
Each Babymoon couple is given an Angel Dear Baby Blankie. These adorable little blankets are 14” square, cashmere soft, machine washable and come in a variety of sweet, charming characters. I carry the giraffe, blue elephant, yellow ducky, green froggy, pink lamb, and brown teddy bear in my Inn gift shop and stock plenty of them for our Babymoon couples. My grandson, Jack Danger, absolutely LOVES his teddy blankie, naming him “Mr. Beasely”. Beasely has been so well-loved that it is often hard to get Jack to give him up for a washing.
Not long ago, we were recognized by Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine as one of the “hottest, hippest, most fabulous babymoon destinations in the U.S.” (May 2008). If you or someone you know is in the market for a pre-baby getaway, we hope you’ll give us a try. Our two-night Babymoon package includes private ocean-view accommodations, an in-room side-by-side couples massage (prenatal for the mothers-to-be and deep tissue for the dads), a three-course gourmet dinner for two at very romantic 5-star bistro, breakfast by candlelight, afternoon tea and treats, plus our special gift for the new arrival.
And for those of you who have Babymooned with us already, keep those photos of your little ones coming. We love to see them.
