Ahh…romance. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, you might be wondering what you could give your spouse or significant other that will leave an indelible mark on their heart for years to come. If so, then I ask you…what could possibly be more romantic than a weekend getaway? If you want to make a lasting impression, consider whisking your lover away to one of these dreamy locations:
Bed & Breakfast Inns
Hideaway Country Inn – Bucyrus, Ohio
With an expansive list of romance package deals, including the 50 Shades of Gray Exquisite Package, you can’t get more couple-friendly than the Hideaway Country Inn. Unlike most inns, overnight and multi-day reservations aren’t required. If you can spare only a few hours to escape from it all, they offer the Afternoon Delight Package, with check-in starting at 8:30 am and check-out at 3:00 pm. The Hideaway has it all – from private dinners, to full-service spa treatments, to scavenger hunts, and everything else in between.
Château de L’Hérissaudière – Pernay, France
Nestled in the Loire Valley, the Hérissaudière was built in 1642 and is located just 55 minutes from Paris. There are numerous couple’s activities on-site and nearby to enjoy, like horseback riding, a heated swimming pool, hiking, hot air balloon rides, helicopter rides, tennis, and much more. The Hérissaudière was named one of BedandBreakfast.com’s top B&B’s in 2015 and offers several rooms, suites, and cottages for couples to choose from.
Prairieside Suites – Grand Rapids, Michigan
Variety is the spice of life, and with packages comprised of A Night to Remember, We’ll Never Tell, and Let’s Fall in Love, Prairieside Suites can add a huge dose of spice to your love life. Enjoy such pleasures as couple’s massage, silk rose petals, chocolates, flowers, and candles, and room rates start at just $149 per night. And did I mention a jacuzzi is provided in each bedroom – instead of the bathroom?
Gramercy Mansion – Stevenson, Maryland
Planning a romantic trip has never been easier. Gramercy Mansion is situated just minutes from Baltimore’s grandest art galleries, museums, and fine dining restaurants, and couples have their choice of elegant accommodations from eleven suites complete with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Some of their romantic add-on packages include: Romance and Roses, Romance and Dinner, Romantic Elopements and Vow Renewals, and Soothing Spa Packages.
Meeting Street Inn – Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston, South Carolina is the epitome of amorous destinations. The Meeting Street Inn has stunning river views and is situated in a beautiful, historic neighborhood. It received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.com in 2016 and is located just a few steps from some of Charleston’s best antique shops and restaurants. Couples can relax in the courtyard hot tub after a long day of sightseeing or unwind in the lobby bar with a glass of their favorite wine.
Locanda dell’ Artista – San Gimignano, Tuscany
This secluded bed-and-breakfast inn is exclusively for adults and can be found in the hilltops between Siena and Florence. Overcrowding isn’t a problem, since the inn has a sixteen-guest maximum, and each guest room comes complete with exquisite Italian linen and goose down pillows and comforters. A solar-heated swimming pool can be found on the grounds, in a tranquil setting among a grove of olive trees, for ultimate calm and relaxation.
The Edgar House – Chester, England
The Edgar House provides the comfort of a small bed-and-breakfast with the elegance of a five-star hotel. Inside you’ll find cozy fireplaces, sweeping staircases, and luxurious guest rooms with copper bathtubs and king-size beds bedecked in goose down pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets. Packages for couples feature The Ultimate Edgar Experience, which includes sumptuous robes, champagne, and freshly-picked rose petals scattered on the bed.
Esperanza – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
There’s always something exciting going on in Cabo San Lucas. Couples can enjoy fun activities, such as whale watching, scuba diving, helicopter tours, culinary classes, fitness classes, and every Thursday evening fireworks light up the nighttime sky. If relaxation is what you’re after, you can rest by the pool while enjoying a hand and foot massage, spritzers, and fresh fruit. Each villa-inspired guest room has little extras too, like deep-soak tubs, hammocks, and a personal concierge.
The Greenwich Hotel – New York City, New York
If you want to give your significant other a lavish vacation, The Greenwich Hotel has just the right amount of posh and style to make them feel as if they’ve stepped into a glamorous wonderland. Each room and suite – all 88 of them – is styled differently, and the suites have soaking tubs, in-room fireplaces, and private saunas. The Greenwich also has penthouses, which showcase 30-foot-tall windows that are perfect for viewing the city.
Belmond Hotel Splendido – Portofino, Italy
The Hotel Splendido is perhaps one of the most romantic and awe-inspiring hotels on the Italian Riviera. With its checkerboard marble floors, hillside pool, and lush gardens, it’s no wonder Richard Burton considered this hotel the perfect setting for his proposal to Elizabeth Taylor. Guests have their choice from sixteen elegant guest rooms and activities vary from bicycle tours of the city to shopping, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and boat cruises – just to name a few.
