Oh Baby: Possible Baby Boom Sets Babymoon Getaways into High Gear

Several New Jersey inns prep to welcome parents-to-be who flock to B&Bs pre-and-post stork
NEW YORK - July 16, 2013 - PRLog -- August was the busiest month for baby births in the U.S. last year. As such, several New Jersey bed and breakfasts are prepping for a possible repeat this year with a pre (or-post) baby getaway, also known as a babymoon.

Whether a couple is welcoming their first or their third child, some time away before the baby gives parents-to-be a chance to unwind and reconnect on an intimate, non-baby planning level. It’s a time to leave concerns over future pediatricians and school applications at the door and check in for some grown up time together.

With this in mind, several members of the Preferred Inns of New Jersey Bed & Breakfast Association (http://www.njinns.com) are offering parents-to-be some much needed time for R&R at B&Bs across New Jersey. The Garden State is within easy reach to travelers from New York, Connecticut, Philadelphia, and even those within New Jersey, who want to getaway, yet stay close to home and near their preferred hospitals.

So, as the countdown continues… below are some New Jersey bed and breakfasts with some popular babymoon getaways:

Bond Before Baby: Perched high above the scenic Delaware River in Stockton, New Jersey, The Wolvertonn Inn offers a romantic 18th Century storybook escape for prospective parents, complete with rolling hills and grazing sheep. Located on 10 park-like acres and surrounded by 300 acres of preserved farmland and forest, the inn feels a world away though it’s just five minutes from the shops and attractions of New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ. The inn’s babymoon package includes a handful of sinfully rich chocolate truffles, fragrant candles, body lotion, and a signature Woolverton Inn plush lamb stuffed animal.  ($65 plus room cost and 7% NJ sales tax; 6 Woolverton Road, Stockton, NJ 08559; www.wolvertoninn.com)

Last Hoorah: Nestled in Stanhope, New Jersey, within the beautiful Skylands Region, is the Whistling Swann Inn. This restored turn-of-the-century Victorian bed and breakfast welcomes expectant parents with a chilled bottle of sparkling cider, chocolate covered strawberries, and fresh flowers. The inn’s babymoon package includes a 30-minute in-room prenatal massage for mom and a stork bag filled with goodies.  Dad also receives a 30-minute in-room Swedish massage. ($189 plus room cost; 110 Main Street, Stanhope, NJ 07874; www.whistlingswaninn.com)

Babymoon Escape: Arrive to Cedars and Beeches Bed & Breakfast in Long Branch, New Jersey, and check in to a luxurious room with French windows, private bath, porcelain tub, and king-sized bed.

The babymoon package includes overnight accommodations in a carriage house suite with fireplace and Jacuzzi tub, an in-room hour-long massage for two (subject to availability) with a neo-natal massage for mom.

Complimentary evening sweets, table games, literary and film library add to your onsite festivities. ($50 plus room cost; 710 Bayview Avenue, Barnegat Light, NJ 08006; www.sandcastlelbi.com)

Baby on a Mission: The sweeping porch and veranda, a mere block from the Atlantic Ocean, are enough to make the most weary soon-to-be parents perk up and take notice. The Western-inspired, The Mission Inn, in Cape Mary, New Jersey, does just that. Babymooners receive a complimentary gift bag containing wonderful goodies for both expectant parents and for the new baby, which includes a pickle jar for salty late night cravings. The friendly staff will also help you arrange relaxing massages and even send you home with massage instructions for DIY-style. (1117 New Jersey Avenue, Cape May, NJ 08204; www.missioninn.net)

The inn offers a luxurious one night getaway for expectant parents. The babymoon package includes a gourmet breakfast, welcome fruit and cheese platter, sparkling cider, and a lovely bouquet of flowers.
