Love is in the air. But, do work schedules, kids’ appointments or the never-ending alerts sounding off from your smartphone have you and your loved one running circles around each another? Maybe it’s time to stop, take a deep breath and get back to basics this Valentine’s Day. If you’re not sure how, let Cupid lead the way.
The winged cherub is sharpening his arrows and stocking his quiver for the big day. He’s ready to spread the love to couples looking for intimate walks along the beach, wine toasts, candlelit dinners, bubble baths and nights cuddling under the covers. And, where better to rediscover and reconnect with one another than on a romantic getaway to a B&B?
Sweep your sweetheart off his or her feet when you soar above Sedona’s stunning red rock landscape in a hot air balloon. After you touch down from the thrilling ride, enjoy a relaxing massage on the terrace followed by a romantic evening getting flirty in your hot tub for two. Savor breakfast in bed the next morning along with gorgeous views of the Red Rock Mountains from your suite.
Nestled amongst lush English gardens, this 1930’s Tudor mansion inspires sensual escapades with its soaking tubs, plush robes, and wood-burning fireplaces. If you decide to leave your suite, romantic horse-drawn carriage rides and fine dining await you. Later, hang the “Do Not Disturb” sign before exploring the “Sexy Amenity Kit” waiting in your room.
Looking for a country escape with modern, urban appeal this Valentine’s Day? At this Greek Revival inn, you can raise a toast to one another courtesy of the innkeeper’s private wine collection before taking an intimate, hand-in-hand stroll along the Maine coastline. Upon return to the inn, draw up a bubble bath in your suite’s whirlpool tub and dry off in front of the in-room gas fireplace.
Chocolate is said to create aphrodisiac effects. You can put that theory to the test during this chocolate-themed weekend. Indulge in a chocolate covered massage for two and learn a few chocolate recipes during a cooking demonstration. You can stop by the Chocolate Café courtesy of a complimentary gift card from the inn and end the day by getting sweet relief in your room’s Jacuzzi tub.
Escape to the natural beauty of Minnesota to reconnect with your loved one. Sip wine on the veranda overlooking Lake Superior, snuggle up in a hammock, soak in the queen-size whirlpool tub, or hide under luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets all day. A gift certificate to one of Duluth’s finest restaurants is available to help you fuel up for an afternoon of sightseeing.
Distractions are everywhere, and finding one-and-one time can be a challenge. So, take a cue from Cupid and cozy up for a blissful weekend away. Sometimes a little guidance goes a long way in love.
