Mother's Day in Ouray!
Ouray Celebrates Mom, a gift she will treasure always!
We all have one. She is strong and soft at the same time. Ready with soothing words for damaged egos, and ready to kiss away your hurts no matter how old you are, Mom is a steadfast presence. Constantly watching, and sometimes nagging, but always ready to catch us if we fall. Every year, we wonder what to do for her that will make her eyes shine. How to show her how much we appreciate everything she has given to us?
Why not mix it up a little? Take mom for a nice scenic drive through some of the most amazing country in Southwest Colorado for a weekend getaway in the San Juan Mountains?
Once you arrive at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, enjoy a soak in the healing waters of our all natural mineral hot spring tubs. Mosey over to the lobby, and peruse our extensive video library for a movie you all can enjoy before heading out for a fabulous dinner in one of the wonderful restaurants on Main Street.
After dinner, enjoy the tranquil beauty of this tiny mining town as you watch deer graze in the field across the way, or up at the hot tubs themselves.
Sunday morning, May 11, 2014 is a day for leisurely relaxation, enjoying the company of family over a decadent Mother's Day Brunch.
Back by popular demand, the Bon Ton Restaurant is reviving their famous Mother's Day Brunch! Offering favorites such as Belgian Waffles and Eggs Benedict, this champagne brunch is a decadent affair of taste bud tantalizing treats. The chefs at the Bon Ton invite you to enjoy a morning filled with fun and great food. Sure to impress mom with stellar service and a beautiful atmosphere, brunch at the Bon Ton is a great way to show her you care.
Nestled in the middle of Main Street, Cavallo's Restaurant offers a plethora of pallet pleasing options with a Louisiana flare. Chef Sid will amaze mom with a menu offering everything from traditional to adventurous, as well as special items and a small gift for that special lady to remember her special day. Not just a brunch, but a dining experience, Cavallo's will surely make her eyes sparkle.
Why limit mom to choosing just one thing on the menu? The Ouray Elks will again be offering a buffet style brunch on Mother's Day, a savory selection of scrumptious cooking prepared by members of the Ouray Elks Lodge.
In memory of the mothers that couldn't share this Mothers Day with us in body, the Elks present a tribute to Mom, celebrating both those we have with us still, and those who have passed. A beautiful ceremony, accompanied with a single red carnation for Mom. What a lovely way to celebrate the day, and express our gratitude to the wonderful lady in our lives!
After Brunch, take a drive down to the Sherbino Theater in Ridgway and enjoy a special presentation by the Weehawken Dance Company: Dance Through the Ages. Enjoy great music and movement in this lovely historic venue!
Its a perfect day and a perfect way to celebrate the woman who made you who you are. She will remeber for years the special Mothers Day Escape with her favorite person in the world!
Let the staff at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs help to create the getaway best suited to your Mother. Always here to help with reservations and full of recomendations for enjoying the San Juans, there is no better basecamp for your next Ouray adventure!
