How to Plan an Unforgettable Baby Moon to San Juan Island

You’ve made it through the first three months and are starting to feeling good again. You’ve decorated the nursery and the baby shower is on the books. Now what? It’s time to plan your Baby Moon. Doctors and experts (as in: millions of women who have done this before you) agree: the best time to enjoy a Baby Moon is in the second trimester, after you conquered the morning sickness and before you are too round to move comfortably. They also agree on road trips being preferable to flying. How about a trip to gorgeous San Juan Island, only 65 miles and a beautiful ferry ride from Seattle?

    Hiking in our incredibly gorgeous State of Washington is its own reward. Every cell in your body gets energized, your heart is pumping and after an especially steep stretch, your body is flooded with endorphins, making you feel happy and giddy to be alive. Then there is hiking on San Juan Island with its clean, salty air, tons of wildlife and beautiful surroundings. Just when you think, it can’t get any better than this with the eagles, the foxes and the wildflowers, you come around a corner with such a spectacular view, it might just take your breath away.

    A Wedding at the Bird Rock Hotel on San Juan Island

    We here at the Bird Rock Hotel love people in love. We love putting little notes in our guest’s rooms when there is an anniversary to celebrate. We love getting fresh roses, champagne and salted caramels for sweet Honey- and Babymooners. We get really excited when somebody plans to propose while staying with us;  even more so if we get to suggest some of our favorite places to pop the question.
