When was the last time you told your mother how much she means to you? Not just an I love you and a kiss on the cheek, but how you appreciate all the sacrifices she made for you, all the tears she cried for you, and all the times she was there for you, supporting you wholeheartedly? Well, because sometimes it takes more than words to express your feelings, we suggest you show your appreciation with a once-in-a-lifetime getaway to one of our favorite places in the world, Cape Cod! Following this guide to Mother’s Day on Cape Cod will ensure that your mom comes away feeling spoiled, loved, and best of all, treasured. That’s so much better than the card and flowers you got her last year, don’t you think?

Mother’s Day Brunch

Mom’s probably going to want to sleep in on her special day, but that’s ok; the brunches on the Cape last through early afternoon, and the one offered by Viera at 11 MA-28 in West Harwich is one of our faves! Featuring three courses of fabulous food, or if you really want to spoil her, a six-course chef’s tasting menu that will make your taste buds sit up and take notice, this special treat is guaranteed to be one of the many highlights of her getaway!

Time for a Spa Day This Mother’s Day on Cape Cod

For a hands-on experience she will never forget, taking some spa time at the Oasis Salon & Day Spa at 1671 Main Street in West Chatham is the winningest idea you will have this entire trip. Offering the standard salon services for your hair and nails, and extra special spa services that include waxing, facials, and massages, your mom will leave her day at the spa feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready for a nap! The hot stone massage is our favorite, but all of their services are wonderful!

Take Her for a Walk

The simplest gestures can sometimes have the grandest appeal, and a walk with mom around the Cape can elicit a monumental response! Hit the shops in Harwich, walk around the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, or walk along the beaches, taking time to stop and pose for pictures in front of the Chatham Light; the best thing you can do for your mom during your Cape Cod getaway is give her the gift of your undivided attention. Nothing will bring a smile to her face faster!

The Second Best Gift?

The gift of time, is, of course, priceless, but the second-best gift will be staying in one of our New England Vacation Rentals Mother’s Day escapes! Reserve your property today and give your mother the trip of a lifetime!
