You’ve heard of a “baby moon”, right? You know, that last relaxation moment you can grab before your life is overtaken by a crying, pooping, eating, and clinging mini. Of course, a joyous occasion, but the baby moon, now that’s a genius invention! Well I missed the boat, baby #3 was born in April 2012 and I haven’t had a break since a girls weekend in December 2010! So I’m inventing the “Mommy-Moon”. It’s when you’re already a mom and deserve a fabulous getaway to regroup!!!

My husband and I went on my “Mommy-Moon” to the Woolverton Inn. Perched high above the scenic Delaware River in Stockton, New Jersey, The Woolverton Inn offers a romantic 18th Century storybook escape for prospective and seasoned parents, complete with rolling hills and grazing sheep. Located on 10 park-like acres and surrounded by 300 acres of preserved farmland and forest, the inn feels a world away though it’s just five minutes from the shops and attractions of New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ. If you have never been to New Hope, it’s a must see! There is so much to do we wished we stayed for 2 nights. But, alas, we had one FABULOUS night. So I’ll tell you about that!

On our way up to the inn we stopped at a local winery for tastings. It was relaxing and delicious and a definite “Mommy moon” thing to do at 2pm on a Sunday! The Woolverton Inn was easy to locate. Plenty of signs led us to the gravel path in between green pasture and a corn field. The scene was so serene that my husband and I both sighed aloud as we pulled in. We parked our car and walked to the main house, which was built in 1792

Bond Before Baby, the babymoon package includes a handful of sinfully rich chocolate truffles, fragrant candles, body lotion, and a signature Woolverton Inn plush lamb stuffed animal (that my 16 month old hasn’t put down since we returned). Regardless, just enjoy!
