How to Pamper Mom This Mother’s Day
20 Apr, 2015
The perfect day in Green Lake for a well-deserving woman.
As true supporters of mothers and the tasks they do day in and day out to make our lives better, Heidel House Resort & Spa has prepared the ideal schedule for you to pamper Mom this Mother’s Day.
9 a.m. – Start the day with a refreshing lake breeze in your hair and a refreshing cocktail in your hand. Our Escapade Yacht will venture into Big Green for the first time this year Mother’s Day weekend. On the Sunday morning Sightseeing Cruise, Mom will enjoy the Captain’s endless tales – sharing how Green Lake became what it is, stories of area landmarks and intriguing history of local families. What’s best? The cruise is complimentary for resort guest mothers. Passengers can spice up the cruise with morning cocktails: Bloody Marys and mimosas will be available for purchase.
11 a.m. – After an hour on the lake, treat Mom to a delicious, lakeside brunch at Grey Rock – our “Kind of swanky. Lots of fun.” restaurant. Heidel House Resort’s culinary team has prepared a menu complete with all sorts of mouthwatering salads, entrées and desserts. Your entire family will enjoy Strawberry Spinach Salad, Wood Roasted Striploin, Leg of Lamb with Mint Pesto, Classic Eggs Benedict, Traditional and Chocolate Waffles, an Omelet Station and so much more! Reservations are required for the Mother’s Day Brunch. View the full menu here.
12:30 p.m. – Once your stomachs are full, you’ll be ready for much-needed relaxation. Take Mom over to Evensong Spa for a massage, facial, body treatment or nail service. In May, moms will receive a complimentary spa gift with the purchase of a service. A guest-favorite is the Inner Journey Massage, beginning with heated stones placed on key energy points of the body to release tension and instill a deep state of relaxation. The therapist then proceeds to give a full body massage with your choice of aromatic oils. Before or after the service, we encourage Mom to enjoy the luxurious relaxation room, waterfall whirlpools, eucalyptus steam rooms or meditation labyrinth.
Because weekend appointments fill quickly at Evensong Spa, we encourage you to book your service well in advance. If you are unsure of what service your mother would prefer, and would like to surprise her with a spa day, consider an Evensong Spa gift certificate.
2:30 p.m. – After Mom finishes up at the spa, spend an afternoon together at Vines & Rushes Winery for free wine tasting. Vines & Rushes is a relatively new winery located on the Prellwitz family farm in Ripon. A beautiful setting with an on-site vineyard makes the wine seem that much tastier. You may also choose to purchase wine by the glass or bottle.
4:30 p.m. – For a relaxed dinner and delicious pub-style fare, check out the BoatHouse Pub. Signatures include a Fish Fry, Baja Tacos, New York Strip Steak and Pecan Encrusted Walleye. You might also enjoy a BoatHouse salad, sandwich or wrap. After dinner, relax on the BoatHouse Patio to enjoy the flicker and warmth of the outdoor fire pit.
7 p.m. – If you and Mom are looking for one last adventure to close out the perfect Mother’s Day, consider Marcus Campus Cinema in Ripon, providing $5 movies every day and always showing the latest releases.
Cheers to Mom! May your Mother’s Day be blessed with great company and lasting memories.
