Mother + Daughter Weekend Retreat at Inns of Aurora


Mothers and daughters have a relationship like no other. Nourish and strengthen that bond with the gift of time spent together in the quiet beauty of Aurora. Enjoy activities, self-care amenities, intimate chats, and gentle restorative yoga. Inns of Aurora Director of Serenity Laura Coburn will guide you though meditation and help you blend your custom scent using therapeutic-grade essential oils. Inspirational speaker and author Teresa Huggins will lead you toward restful sleep and prepare you for the next step on your wellness path.

Enjoy thoughtfully prepared, locally-sourced meals from our chefs, complemented by carefully selected wine pairings. Take some time for yourselves as individuals and curl up with a good book or take a late morning nap.

Accommodations and many activities for the retreat are centered in Rowland House, one of the four Inns of Aurora. Built in 1903 and restored in 2014, Rowland House offers four-diamond guestrooms, an exceptional collection of modern art, antiques from around the world, pristine water views, comfortable parlors for gathering by the fire, a stunning dining room, luxurious marble baths, and an innkeeper to see to your every need.
