And for after baby arrives...
If bed rest or an early delivery means no prenatal babymoon, or if leaving an older child behind just doesn’t feel right, book a quiet weekend as a family.
Children younger than 4 stay and eat for free while kids 5–12 can be added to your reservation for just $27 per night at Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth. The resort’s “play barn” has a grown-up billiards table as well as kid-friendly table tennis, board games and puzzles; a family hospitality room features a stage where kids can work out their wiggles; not to mention swimming pools, hiking trails (for every ability), tubing and snowshoe rentals that keep families active.
If your baby is still tiny and you want a quieter stay, bundle up for sleigh rides (substituted with hay rides in summer), tour the 2-acre organic garden that supplies the on-site restaurant, or simply relax in the resort library or hotel spa.
Oh, and a tip for after you’ve munched on the resort’s locally sourced cuisine: Stop at Leavenworth’s Taffy Shop to reward everyone for being so sweet.
