It’s Mother’s Day weekend, so instead of giving Mom a hard time, give her the full resort getaway treatment. Why? Because we’re adults now. And because she’s Mom. She sees you when you’re sleeping and knows when you’re awake. She knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake?

Wrong holiday. Wrong season entirely. But you get the idea.

Combine flowers and The Ridge for an unforgettable Mother's Day.

Combine flowers and The Ridge for an unforgettable Mother’s Day.

Treat Mom to a number of lodging, recreation and spa options at The Ridge, designed to give her some of that peace of mind you know she deserves.

Elevation Spa has Mom’s name written all over it. Through May 16 you can book any one hour treatment or longer for Mom and she’ll receive a complimentary Dermalogica gift box, valued at $36. Elevation has a fully-licensed staff who know a thing or two about how to get people to relax with customized combinations of Swedish, Sports and Acupressure techniques.

The Ridge Tahoe has a 45,000-square-foot clubhouse with a plethora of organized activities such as morning stretch classes, total body condition workouts, pilates and boxlates, beginner to advanced tennis clinics, art and cooking classes and movie nights.

On Mother’s Day the Hungry Bear Restaurant will host a champagne brunch from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Open daily, The Hungry Bear offers several menu items in true Sierra cuisine style and prepared perfectly with locally-fresh ingredients.

Or you may want to take Mom on a ride aboard the M.S. Dixie II or Tahoe Queen, where moms ride free during the month of May. The 312-passenger Tahoe Queen, is the lake’s only authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler. The 520-passenger, award-winning M.S. Dixie II is the largest cruising vessel in South Lake Tahoe, and a local favorite. Considered one of South Lake Tahoe’s most entertaining and affordable water activities, the M.S. Dixie II has been voted “Best Cruise in Nevada” by Nevada Magazine. Tickets for these cruises are available at the Ridge Tahoe Marketplace.
