Don’t look now but Cupid is making moves. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and he’s sharpening his arrows and stocking his quiver in playful preparation. He’s aiming to ratchet up the romance on couples of all kinds, from youthful sweethearts to long-time partners. When his arrow strikes, love blooms.
If you’re thinking of planning a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day, you might want to consider a bed and breakfast. From complimentary champagne toasts and chocolate-dipped strawberries to couples in-room massages and breakfast in bed, these inns will help warm your heart. But, make sure to plan ahead. These inns fill up fast with amorous couples looking for an intimate adventure.
Here are some B&Bs where Cupid can be found spreading the love:
Abigail’s Hotel—Victoria, BC.
Warm up and then cool down together with the inn’s “Fire & Ice Package.” Cozy up by a crackling fire (Abigail’s hotel is one of the only hotels in Victoria with actual wood burning fireplaces) while sharing a complimentary bottle of Brute before heading to the soaker tub for a relaxing bubble bath. There’s no need to leave your room the next morning because a “Breakfast in Bed” basket will be delivered to you.
The Weller Haus—Bellevue, KY.
At this inn, your wish is your loved one’s command. As part of their “Enchanted Evening Romance Package” you’ll “compete” in a romantic board game for couples where the winner will have their secret wish (written down at the start of play) fulfilled. Your actions around the game board are directed by playing cards and the answers to the questions are both playful and verbal. Although only one of you can end up the champion, the time spent getting to know each other all over again makes your relationship the real winner.
Chestnut Street Inn—Sheffield, IL:
As the saying goes, the quickest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and Chef Monika Sudakov is prepared to get your there with a sumptuous Valentine’s Day menu. She’ll start you off with mushroom pate immediately followed by a roasted butternut squash and chestnut soup. A homemade banana and crystallized ginger sorbet will cleanse your palette for the main course of filet mignon with gorgonzola cream sauce and spinach soufflé. The epicurean meal will conclude with a maple pumpkin crème brulee.
The Platinum Pebble—West Harwich, MA:
Cape Cod in the heat of summer brings to mind busy sidewalks and boisterous crowds. Winters, while cold, are spacious and serene making the popular Massachusetts vacation spot perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day escape. Stroll hand-in-hand along the quiet, secluded beaches of the Nantucket Sound while enjoying the soothing ocean sounds. Once you’re back at the inn head to your room where you can pop open the complimentary bottle of champagne and raise a celebratory toast…to one another.
Cupid doesn’t play favorites. He’s targeting couples everywhere with his charm offensive. So, if you and your loved one are in need of a romantic getaway, try visiting a bed and breakfast this Valentine’s Day. The winged cherub has taken up residence and added his signature, romantic touch. Your relationship won’t be able to resist!
