This is a friendly reminder to all you spouses, sons, and daughters out there: Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, May 13. And one of the best ways to show mom you appreciate her is with a weekend getaway. Resorts are a good solution for last-minute trips (less planning), and whether mom is looking for a relaxing spa retreat or a few days with the whole family, we have the resort for you.
Mom loves all the chaos, er, fun that daily life brings. But sometimes she just needs a break. Cal-a-vie Health Resort in Vista, California, just outside of San Diego, provides over-the-top services like a pumpkin souffle body wrap, coffee massage, and micro-current hydrolift facial. If mom is not the type to lounge around all day, the resort also offers a full line-up of fitness classes.

One-on-one time with her spouse is probably high on mom's most-wanted list. A romantic getaway might be just the thing she has in mind for her special treat. At The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, in Bluffton, South Carolina, near Hilton Head Island, Spanish moss and Southern hospitality set the scene for a perfect Lowcountry weekend. Take a swim in the adults-only pool, have an elegant dinner at River House Restaurant, and lounge on the large screened-in porch of your private cottage. Biking, golfing, and spa treatments round out the experience.

Because it is Mother's Day, after all, a trip that incorporates the whole family might be in order. Vista Verde Guest Ranch, near Steamboat Springs, Colorado, offers an all-inclusive experience that's limited to 40 guests at a time. And with a staff to guest ratio of 1:1, your crew will be able to partake in all the horseback riding, fly-fishing, and white-water rafting that the resort provides. Note that you'll have to give mom an IOU, as the resort doesn't open for the summer season until June. But it's worth the wait!
