5 Tips to plan the Perfect Mother’s Day on San Juan Island

It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day proper for you to celebrate the most amazing woman in your life, but celebrated she must be, especially after this last year. Treat her to a relaxing getaway to adorable Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. We here at the Bird Rock Hotel will make the planning a breeze and you will have a great time too, we promise!

1) Flowers & Champagne

Add Champagne and fresh island flowers to your room when you make your reservation and revel in her smile.

2) Massage & Farm-to-Table Dinner

Book her a rejuvenating massage at the Spa at Earthbox before whisking her away to a cozy Farm-to-Table-restaurant within walking distance for a sumptuous seafood dinner and cocktails. We’ll help with both reservations.

3) Shopping Therapy at the Lavender Farm

Visit the gorgeous Pelindaba Lavender Farm and leave her at the fabulous farm store for a shopping spree while you stroll the fields. Pelindaba integrates art from local artists, like lavender-themed ceramics, into their impressive 200+ product line-up. Those unique gems are only available at the Gatehouse Farm Store at the Farm.

4) Whale Watch Tour

A Spring whale & wildlife tour with our friends at San Juan Safaris down at the docks makes for an unforgettable adventure. Get a glimpse of the newest Orca baby, watch Bald Eagle parents teach their eaglets how to fly, observe Humpbacks and sea lions and dolphins in the wild. We’ll help book the tour right for you.

5) Sunset Picnic

Grab a bottle of wine and a pizza from Bakery San Juan and head to the San Juan County Park on the Westside, where “Practical Magic” was filmed (she’ll know). There, at the perfect picnic table situated high above the Salish Sea, let the sun set while listening to the sea lions bark.
