Last-Minute Ideas for Mother’s Day in the Lakes Region

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Celebrate Mom in style this year by taking her to the Lakes Region for her special day. There are some wonderful options for brunch, dinner, cruises, and tours. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of springtime in this unique area…

Right here at Mill Falls at the Lake, our own Lakehouse Grille is offering an elegant Grand Buffet for Mother’s Day Brunch from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm. The buffet is $29.95 per adult, and $14.95 for children under 12. Lakehouse will also serve from the Dinner Menu with some Mother’s Day specials from 4 pm – 9 pm. All moms who attend brunch or dinner will receive a rose, while supplies last, in support of Granite United Way. For more information or reservations, please call 603-279-5221.

After brunch, Mom might enjoy strolling around quaint Meredith Village and the Mill Falls Marketplace where she will find one-of-a-kind, locally owned shops featuring unique gifts and clothing items. Or stop by Hermit Woods Winery to sample some award-winning local wine.

For a fun Lakes Region tradition, treat Mom to a Mother’s Day Brunch Cruise on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee aboard the M/S Mount Washington. Choose between the 10 am or the 2 pm cruise that leaves from Weirs Beach in Laconia. Tickets are $47 per adult, $23 per child, and free for age 4 and under. The ticket includes brunch, and can be purchased online at or by calling 603-366-5531. Get your tickets early—these cruises usually sell out!

If Mom loves flowers, she will really enjoy a trip to beautiful Tarbin Gardens in Franklin, NH. Admission is free for mother when accompanied by a ticket payer. Tarbin Gardens is the only English Landscape style garden in New Hampshire that’s open to the public. Explore the extensive gardens, or sit awhile and relax. Tarbin Gardens will also still be celebrating Magnolias and other spring flowering trees that day. The self-guided tour features a map, and all plants are labeled. The staff will be available to answer any questions. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch or snack to eat in the Rose Garden Patio. The gardens are open from 10am – 6pm. For more information, please call 603-934-3518 or visit the Tarbin Gardens website at

At the Wright Museum of World War II in Wolfeboro, guests can see many fascinating exhibits in the Home Front Gallery and the Military Gallery, and travel through the war years of 1939 – 1945 in the Time Tunnel. Visitors will also enjoy the museum’s vast collection of World War II propaganda posters in the Art Gallery, as well as the 1940s Soda Fountain Exhibit. Free admission for moms on Mother’s Day when accompanied by a paying family member! For more information, please visit the museum’s website at or call 603-569-1212.

Let Mom know she is special by treating her to something really memorable this year. Happy Mother’s Day!
