Best Babymoon Locations in Arkansas


Arkansas mommies-to-be: are you planning a babymoon and need something local/last minute? Never fear, Arkansas has plenty of relaxing options for a great get away before baby! Assuming you didn't have your hopes set on that tropical beach, that is (who needs Zika or hurricanes anyway though, amirite?) Joking aside: you knew your life was going to change as soon as you saw those two pink lines appear. And if you are anything like me, you promised yourself you would always make time for you and your spouse and not become a harried, perpetually busy parent with nothing but cracker crumbs and broken crayons in your overnight bag. But let's face it - life is busy. And things get away from you! So now delivery day is looming and you need to make time for that last relaxing get away, with or without your honey. Let's look at some in-state options for getting away without getting too far away (your birth professionals will thank you!)

Central Arkansas:

The Empress of Little Rock

2120 Louisiana St. Little Rock, Arkansas 72206

Phone: (501) 374-7966hostess@theempress.com

"Babymoon Expectations Package: when only the best will do for this last special moment before two become three! A romantic getaway for just the “two of you”. The Empress of Little Rock is the “inn” place to be! Imagine checking into one of our romantic suites and finding sparkling cider and our signature double hand-dipped chocolate covered cherries on a silver tray! We will arrange for an in-room prenatal massage for mother-to-be and Swedish massage for daddy-to-be. After the massages, have dinner for two at the wonderful Ciao’s Italian restaurant (discount coupon included) in the heart of downtown Little Rock. Following your meal, relax in a ride around downtown Little Rock in a horse-drawn carriage. Back at the inn, fall into a featherbed and drift off to sleep as visions of the little one go dancing in your head. The next morning enjoy a two course gourmet breakfast by candle light. This package is available for two or three nights."

"Enjoy one last quiet getaway before baby makes 3, in one of our master suites. Upon arrival, indulge in fresh baked cookies, pickles, and ice cream.

Then in the evening sit outside with the one you love and watch the sunset over sparkling cider and chocolate covered strawberries."

The Great Babymoon Escape

"One last getaway before life changes drastically! Let us help you show her she is special! Candles, single rose, petals will be set up in your room as well as chilled non-alcoholic juice to toast to this new addition to your family. On to a relaxing 50 minute private couples massage. Hers will be a prenatal massage given by a certified prenatal massage therapist. His will be a therapeutic massage. A box of chocolates will be waiting to satisfy those cravings and a Victorian stuffed bear will be hers to take home."

They all sound like perfection to me! Here are some more options in the Central Arkansas Area that don't have specific babymoon packages but do have various "romance" packages for a quick sweet getaway. Rosemont Inn & Cottages - 515 West 15th Street, Little Rock, AR 72202 Rosehaven Cottages -1410-1412 South Arch Street, Little Rock, AR 72202 501-766-0355 - RosemontBB@aol.com An Enchanting Evening Cabin 1-501-330-2182 This cabin is often booked due to it being a wedding venue as well. But if you can get away during the week it looks like an incredible spot to get away very close to Little Rock. It is gorgeous and even comes with chocolate fondue for two!

The Mommy & Daddy to be will remember this TIME FOREVER...

YOU GUYS. This place has HOBBIT CAVES. You could have your babymoon in a romantic Shire-esq abode. I mean, I don't want to play favorites but that is right up my geeky alley!

This is by no means an exhaustive list - there are plenty of fantastic B&B's in the state that serve up pampering and relaxation. So if none of these suit your fancy hit up bedandbreakfast.com and see what else the natural state has to offer! You might even do what this Little Rock couple did and check into VBRO for a more private getaway. Whatever you decide, I hope you have a great time and soak up every peaceful minute. Happy babymooning!
