California – Glendeven Inn & Lodge in Little River

Spend time getting closer to nature at an adult-only inn on 15 acres. Many guest rooms boast private entrances, wood-burning fireplaces, and in-room breakfast so guests can spend time focusing on each other. Surrounded on three sides by a state park, there are numerous trails to the beach, coastline, or fern canyon. Experience the wonder of forest bathing with a walk through the trees, private time in the forest-side hot tub, and a one-hour massage. Wander by pastured llamas or laugh at the antics of the roaming chickens. The inn specializes in romantic extras and every evening top local wines and an appetizer is served in the Wine Barn.


Georgia – Sugar Magnolia in Atlanta

Explore a new city together with more than 50 restaurants, bars, and shops within half a mile of the inn. Once Atlanta’s first suburb, Inman Park is now a premier Victorian neighborhood in the heart of the city. The inn offers quiet spaces by one of the seven fireplaces, on a balcony or porch, beside a lovely garden, or near the piano as the innkeeper tickles the ivories. The lovingly restored inn may also inspire guests to enjoy romantic kisses shared under the crystal chandelier in the front hall and imagine days gone by in the history of the inn.


New Hampshire – The Lakehouse at Ferry Point in Sanbornton

There is just something about being near water that instills a sense of serenity. The Lakehouse boasts especially breathtaking views. Rise early to watch the sunrise then settle in by the stunning stone fireplace in the living room. Venture out to ski the local mountains or schedule a more laidback moonlit walk on the nearby 160 acres of field, forest and gardens at Prescott Farm. Make your getaway extra special by reserving the private Lake Solitude Suite; the two-story house boasts a California king bed, Jacuzzi tub and shower, full kitchen, and gorgeous views of the lake.

Breakfast is a special time featuring mountain views and individual tables for couples.


South Carolina – Pettigru Place Bed & Breakfast in Greenville

A day exploring the 20 nearby waterfalls or venturing along downtown Main Street can be fun but tiring. Guests are reminded to take a break and savor the moment when they return to the inn each afternoon. Wine, cheese, and crackers are provided to unwind in the garden, sitting room, or the coziness of their guest room. Mornings are also a time to sit back and relax with a gourmet breakfast that may include peaches and cream French toast. Numerous galleries, museums, and performing arts venues are nearby for guests wishing to explore cultural arts together.


Massachusetts – Devonfield Inn in Lee

Nibble on hand-dipped chocolate strawberries as you soak in a whirlpool spa tub or sit together beside a wood-burning fireplace. Cuddle up by the outdoor firepit as the sun sets over the Berkshire Mountains but don’t miss the wine and cheese hour accompanied by live piano music. The innkeepers here strive to provide every guest with just what they are looking for at a welcoming inn. Guests wanting a private “residence in the country” should book the stand-alone Queen’s Cottage. Newly engaged couples will want to check out the inn’s elopement package!

You love each other, you also love your furry family members, so bring them along to this dog-friendly inn. Don’t have a dog of your own? Be sure to visit with Maple, the resident “Morale Officer and Director of Security.” Independent of the furry cuteness, the inn boasts luxurious amenities. Guest rooms offer a king or queen bed, jetted tub or dual couples shower, and a gas-log fireplace. The area features six covered bridges making the ideal backdrop for a romantic photo shoot or simply a reason to explore.


North Carolina – Abbington Green in Asheville

The inn is filled with historic ties to the Biltmore Estate as the same supervising architect was commissioned to design the building. Each of the nine classically-inspired and lovingly restored guest rooms boast a working fireplace, whirlpool tub, and shower. The king beds are bedecked with spa sheets from the Comphy Company; the sheets are available for purchase at the inn for guests who wish to enjoy the same comfort at home (and remember their romantic getaway). The original parlor of the inn has been converted into a spa with two massage tables offering single or couples’ massages. Valentine’s Day is celebrated with roses, chocolates, and special heart tarts at breakfast.


New York – Sutherland House Victorian Bed & Breakfast in Canandaigua

The inn provides the best of both worlds: a quiet getaway for those who are looking for peace and tranquility, and the thrill of outdoor four season activities for those looking for an adventure. Romance can be found throughout the day starting with a candlelit three-course breakfast served by the fireplace. Guest rooms feature special amenities for a getaway including a CD player and romantic music, wine glasses, gas or electric fireplaces, and bathrobes and blankets for snuggling. Enjoy one of the several rooms equipped with chandeliers above the whirlpool tubs. For an even more romantic touch, arrange for a package which includes roses and chocolate covered strawberries, a cheese and fruit plate, or even a special occasion cake.
