Although we are a little farther north of the border than other places that celebrate the Cinco de Mayo holiday, we feel connected to our brothers and sisters of the south, and we love any chance to celebrate, so how can we go wrong? For those not in the know, the reason behind this celebration held every May 5th is to acknowledge and honor the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire in 1862. Of course, today it is more of a day to get together with your friends and drink tequila and Mexican beer, but it is nice to learn something new, don’t you think? If you are planning a Cinco de Mayo vacation getaway to big sky country, a stay in one of our I Love Whitefish vacation escapes guarantees a fiesta you will never forget!
The Colors of Comfort
Winters are long and snowy in Montana, and people who live here tend to compensate by filling their spaces with all the colors that are lacking outside, and that includes inside our I Love Whitefish Cinco de Mayo vacation rentals. Step inside to warmth and beauty, exploring all the ways we show our guests how much we appreciate them, starting with the heart of the home.
The kitchen is a space that brings about mixed feelings in real life as we spend so much time within its walls, but in Whitefish, the little touches of luxury help visitors rediscover their joy in cooking! Here is the room where you can choose to create a buffet of tacos, reheat leftovers from the little diner down the way, or whip up a batch of margaritas in honor of Cinco de Mayo. The dining room, conveniently located just steps away, often serves multiple purposes as guests gather together for a meal, play board games, or sip tequila until it’s time to head over to the living areas for a quick nap!
The living area is another favored spot in our rentals, featuring smart TVs, comfy furnishings, and pops of color found in soft throws, throw rugs under the couch, and in the artwork on the walls. This room is dedicated to your comfort, and as you nap, catch up on your reading, or cheer on your favorite team, you will feel like you’ve finally discovered your happy place in life! Head out to the balconies, patios, and decks that take up space in the backyard and take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the Montana landscape before settling down and beginning to make plans to barbecue!
Weekends are made for barbecues with family, but when on vacation, EVERY day can be barbecue day! After all the burgers and homemade potato salad has been devoured, it does not mean your day has ended because there is so much more fun to be had, especially if you have chosen one of our Whitefish rentals with a hot tub. Simmer in hot and bubbly waters under the velvety dark sky, feeling the cool night air kiss your cheeks in contrast to the warmth below the water. Gather round the fire pits found in some of our homes and fill your nights with ghost stories, dad jokes, and a camaraderie that will continue long after you have left Montana to return home.
Finally, when you feel your eyelids trying to close and you know that no matter how hard you try, you cannot stay awake another second, slipping between silky soft sheets in our quiet and tranquil bedrooms will be the one luxury you did not expect. As we grow older, sleep becomes more elusive, but in our Whitefish homes it comes easy, allowing occupants to awaken each morning feeling rested and renewed, perhaps for the first time in years!
Let the Fiesta Begin!
So far, we have done a lot of talking about the wonders of our I Love Whitefish properties, but don’t worry; we have not forgotten the reason for your visit! No Cinco de Mayo celebration would be complete without a visit to any of the Mexican restaurants our town has to offer! Enjoy steak tacos in the cabin like setting offered by Pescado Blanco, 235 East 1st Street. Savor a Latin brunch with handmade margaritas at Mama Blancas (130 Central Avenue), followed by the sweet delights found in their chocolate chile tortes created with a flourless chocolate and chile torte topped with a coconut and chocolate ganache. Or mosey on over to the Jalisco Cantina, where their authentic Mexican meals and extensive tequila selection will ensure that this celebration is one you will never forget—unless you taste too many of their tequilas, that is!
