Mother's Day is right around the corner and this is the year to pull out all the stops for Mom! Since becoming an official US holiday in 1914, Mother's Day has become an honored tradition, celebrating all the hard-working moms for everything they do. What better way to show your appreciation than with some relaxing downtime at The Otesaga? Read on to see all the ways to treat the special moms in your life with a getaway at our lakeside resort.
Me Time for Mom
The gift of relaxation is priceless! Give mom some time to recharge with a visit to Hawkeye Spa. With an invigorating menu of massage and facial treatments to choose from, a visit to the spa gives her the chance to treat herself to exactly what she needs, whether it's a Himalayan Salt Stone/Hot Stone massage, Otesaga Signature Massage, Radiant Facial, or Pure Results Facial. With the option to add on enhancements and purchase the incredible Naturopathica products used in the spa, this will truly be a Mother's Day gift she won't forget!
Tea Time? Try Tee Time!
Who says Mom can't play golf? Many people still associate a round of golf as a Father's Day present, but for moms who like to stay active, a round on Leatherstocking Golf Course gives her the chance to play on our scenic, championship course. Featuring diverse elevations and breathtaking vistas, Leatherstocking is fun to play for amateur and experienced players, with lakeside views to inspire along the way. Finish off this Mother's Day challenge by treating her to a delicious meal at our own 19th hole, Leatherstocking Golf Bar & Grill.
See the Sights
A Mother's Day getaway at The Otesaga offers the perfect opportunity to experience Cooperstown in spring. Enjoy the natural beauty of our area with a hike or a picnic at Glimmerglass State Park, with its picturesque views of the north end of Otsego Lake. Beauty of a different kind awaits at Fenimore Art Museum, just a short walk from The Otesaga. Let Mom feed her creative side with fascinating exhibitions like Al Hirschfeld: Caricaturist to the Stars or Drawn from Life: Three Generations of Wyeth Figure Studies (opening May 7). Across the street from the Fenimore, The Farmers' Museum brings to life New York's agricultural heritage with living history interpreters, cuddly barnyard animals, and the always-fun Empire State Carousel.
If you aren't able to schedule a visit for Mother's Day weekend, an Otesaga gift card is the perfect way to let her plan the getaway she deserves, at a time that works for her. Or surprise her with an unforgettable Mother's Day in Cooperstown and book your stay today!
