Gift Certificates for the Holidays

christmas-presentsThe perfect gift is just a click away! This holiday season, or for any special occasion, treat the special people in your life to a gift certificate from Five Gables. Whether you’re planning to design the ultimate getaway or you prefer to let the recipient use their certificate as they wish, a Five Gables gift certificate is everyone’s perfect gift.

One recent guest is giving their daughter and son-in-law a much-needed escape. Their Five Gables certificate will be good for one “His n’ Hers Romance Package” including two nights accommodation, an herbal bath and 1 hour massage each, and a wine and cheese basket upon arrival. Another is giving a good friend a massage certificate to use for an Aveda Hot Stone Massage in Five Gables’ spa. Today, a visitor to our spa purchased a certificate for her granddaughter to use in buying makeup from the Five Gables Aveda shop – at 16, she can never have enough lip gloss!

As a gift of love or a gift of thanks, Five Gables gift certificates will be appreciated by anyone on your list. Why not make your holiday shopping easy this year? Give us a call, tell us who you’re shopping for, and we’ll suggest the perfect solution! Or, click here to purchase online.

Trade Spaces with Your Spouse

Wouldn’t it be great if your husband could learn how to cook while you enjoy a relaxing spa experience? Well our Trading Spaces package allows just that.

We have recently created a package that allows couples to spend an interactive and relaxing weekend away from the kids. The men will attend a 2-3 hour cooking class that will involve them in some of the preparation for the evening’s dinner. And ladies, while your husband is slaving away in the kitchen, you will enjoy and “Ultimate” spa package at the inn. At 6:00 p.m., the couples will reunite and sit down at Gourmet by the Bay for a served dinner that will include the items that the men had helped to prepare earlier in the day.
This package will only be offered on four (4) separate weekends throughout the year in order to maximize the experience, so space is very limited. Be sure to book in advance in order to secure a spot.

Upcoming weekends:

Winter January 28/29, 2011
Spring March 11/12, 2011
Summer July 15/16, 2011
