We are tickled to announce our Poshbrood Posh Picks contest winners who are going to experience the ultimate in family travel.


* A deluxe room in Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, Massachusetts—A gal named Heather McAuliffee has won the “wicked good” trip to Bahstin. We haven’t heard back from Heather yet but know she has a real working email and signed up for voluntarily and wasn’t wrangled by one of our friends or family. Where are you, girl? Please be in touch or we’ll have to redraw on Monday!

* Kiki McLean, a tireless full-time working mom who is the boss at a big time PR firm in Washington, DC will be checking into a suite at the Palomar Hotel DC! This mother of two small children deserved a break and may just check in to the hotel
to order room service and watch movies alone. Do it, girl!

* Congrats to Sharie Hyder from Seattle, WA! She will be taking a break from the IT Department at the University of Washington to live it up in a suite in Trump SoHo NYC! Sharie has a 6 year old son with her husband and they all love to travel!

* Can. You. Die?!?!  Elizabeth Adams of Bethesda, MD won the five days/four nights in a four-bedroom, fully-staffed luxury beachfront villa from Jamaica Villas by Linda Smith! Mom of three children ages 13, 10 and 7, Elizabeth is married to her high school sweetheart (awwww!), loves a good pizza and a cold beer and has never been to Jamaica. The Adams Family is going to Montego Bay, mon!

(Boring legal stuff: Winners were picked from [] and matched against the number in our mailing list database. Travel expenses, incidentals, meals are
the responsibility of the winner.)

We will be posting “trip reports” from our winners and are working on a new family travel getaway contest….so stay tuned!

Poshbrood is so excited to have been featured as a new hip family travel resource in the faboo DC Modern Luxury Magazine

Also, Elizabeth Thorp was featured as a “momtrepreneur” in The Georgetown Dish.
We are très flattered and honored to be receiving such nice compliments.

We also just added two new family travel properties – the ultimate LA family luxury hotel The Peninsula Beverly Hills (wear ginormous Jackie-O sunglasses and everyone will think you’re famous) and a modern euro-chic cabin in the West Virginia Mountains. Check them out!
