A Mancation for the Big Daddy – B&B’s for Father’s Day
Father’s Day is coming, and what Dad really wants is another…. tie? Of course not; what Dad wants is fun and adventure, and perhaps even a touch of luxury. Thousands of B&Bs serve gourmet He-Man breakfasts and offer great activities for those who want to enjoy the great outdoors. Or maybe Dad would like a little pampering and some well-deserved R&R for Father’s Day. Here are some bed and breakfast ideas that will beat a tie any day.
Fly-fishing, Gold Panning
Is Dad a Wild West fan with a taste for the supernatural? Then take this closet cowboy to the 1859 Historic National Hotel in Jamestown, Calif. Opened in 1859 in California’s Gold Country, the National Hotel has been in operation continuously since then. During all those years a lot of gold dust has crossed this B&B's original redwood bar and the innkeepers can tell you where to pan for gold or set you up with superb guides for an underground mine tour. Also consider a vineyard bike tour or top notch fly fishing excursion.
Great Breakfasts, Steaming Trains and Mancations
Invigorate the train buff in your family. If you’re thinking about a trip in the Northeast consider Jackson, New Hampshire and the Inn at Ellis River. Here Dads receive two tickets on the Conway Scenic Railroad when staying for two nights in a fireplace or Jacuzzi room. The train offers incredible vistas and plenty of steam when going around a bend, enough to make Dad smile with every turn. “Mancations” are offered in the same town by the Cabernet Inn with a special package for Moat Mountain Brewery and the Village Cigar Emporium.
Give Dad the Gift of History, Baseball and an Adirondack Train Ride
From Portobello Inn Bed & Breakfast in Herkimer, N.Y., an 1840s Italianate treasure, Dad can visit the Baseball Hall of Fame, ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, visit local museums or take a cruise along the Erie Canal.
CopperToppe Inn and Retreat Center in Hebron, New Hampshire, suggests “grillin’ and chillin” by the hot tub with balloons, a cake of your choice and a car wash and vacuum –all included for Father’s Day. Massages are available at cost and concierge services are happy to arrange activities in the area.
