Bah Humbug!

I remember when I got my first facial....It was December 9, 1987. As a gift for my June birthday, I had received a gift certificate from my friend, Susan, for a facial at a salon in our local mall. I had saved it for the perfect time, and, when we were invited to a Christmas party on that particular Saturday, I know this would be the perfect time for a facial.

The reason it comes to mind now, is that I felt SO smug to be there relaxing and being pampered while thinking about all the other people racing throughout the mall in their annual quest for the right Christmas gift for each person on their lists. It really was even more relaxing knowing that I had completed my shopping.

Now, so many years later, as the owner of an inn, I got to thinking that I can't help people relax by actually doing their shopping for them. But, I can wrap their gifts while they are getting a massage. So we developed a Christmas package that lets our guests get off the rat race during one of the busiest times of the year.

Our "Christmas Shopping Made Easy" package includes:

2 nights at our inn;
Multi-course full breakfasts each morning;
One hour massage after your shopping spree while we wrap your gifts;
Dinner at one of our favorite restaurants - we'll make the reservation;
Ticket for Christmas Light Show on the Boardwalk

All for $455.00 per couple plus taxes
