When was the last time you had a momcation weekend?
If you’re like me, it’s probably been a while since you’ve managed to sneak off for a weekend alone. No kids. No husband.
This year, I decided to make mini getaways with girlfriends a priority. Not only does it give me a much-needed break from domestic responsibilities, but it also allows me the opportunity to nurture my friendships.
If having getaways with mom friends is something you’d like to prioritize for 2023, take some notes. I’m going to share with you a beautiful coastal town in California that’s perfect for your next momcation weekend!
Carmel, situated in the Monterey Peninsula, is a 3-hour drive from Sacramento. Known for its white sand beach, rich art history, fairytale cottages and beautiful Carmel Mission, Carmel is one of the most popular destinations in California. And it’s been recently named One of The Best 12 Coziest Small Towns in California.
Hofsas House | Where to stay on Momcation
Hofsas House, a family-owned boutique inn, is located within the one-square mile village of Carmel. Everything is walkable from the inn. It’s perfect for going to all the tasting rooms because it’s so close to everything. We didn’t have to worry about who’s the designated driver.
Amenities at Hofsas House include a heated outdoor pool, a sauna, and continental breakfast.
Room Tour & Pool
Our room had a huge balcony, and we could see the ocean which was a short 10-minute walk from the inn. We had plenty of space and the 2 bathrooms with large vanities meant we could all get ready simultaneously instead of taking turns.
Things To Do
I couldn’t have thought of a better place to have a momcation weekend. We were able to shop, dine, and drink all within a quick stroll from the inn. It’s quite possible I indulged a little too much during our stay.
There are so many restaurants to choose from. It was hard to decide on which one we wanted to try. Here’s a quick look at some of the places we tried.
Hofsas House is celebrating their 75th anniversary. Now’s a great time to visit and make new memories.
Get a hold of some girlfriends and plan a momcation weekend at Hofsas House!
P.S. Carmel is also a great place to take the whole family.
