The Bed and Breakfast on Tiffany Hill in Mills River, North Carolina, is where dreams come true. The inn near Asheville was built as a bed and breakfast so it features all of the amenities you could possibly look for in a perfect getaway. Each of the seven guest rooms is inspired by the charm of a favorite southern city from the equestrian roots of Lexington, Kentucky, to the French flair of Natchez, Mississippi. Since all meals should end on a sweet note, even the three-course breakfast has a dessert course.


Barcelona Lakeside Bed and Breakfast in Westfield, New York, has thought of everything in their Romance Rekindled package. Chocolate-covered strawberries, sparkling wine, in-room massages, and private access to the therapeutic hot tub spa may do more than just “rekindle” your love. Boasting artisan bread sandwiches, tastings, and complimentary pickup of wine purchases made during the day, the Wine and Wheels packages is a leisurely way to explore Lake Erie Wine Country together.


The Cheshire Cat Inn in Santa Barbara, California, offers elegance and complete privacy in four separate cottages. Located across the street from the Main House, each cottage boasts two bedrooms, a fireplace, a private patio or deck, and a full kitchen in case you like to cook for each other. The best part of a massage is the complete relaxation when it is done; book an in-room spa treatment to let that feeling continue for hours after the massage is complete.


Shiloh Morning Inn in Ardmore, Oklahoma, offers a romantic dinner in your suite or cottage. Choose a light meal of shrimp, cheese, and bread or opt for a multi-course experience including a carafe of wine.

Escape to the secluded Roadrunner Hideaway on a personal golf cart to spend the evening in a hot tub on your screened porch.


Mornings at the Honeybee Inn Bed and Breakfast in Horicon, Wisconsin, start with a candlelit breakfast beside the fireplace in the elegant dining room.
