If there’s ever been a great time for romantic mountain getaways, this winter is it. And when it comes to choosing a partner for those romantic mountain getaways, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in the industry with a better reputation for excellence than Select Registry and its expansive network of Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, and Boutique Hotels. 

One of the things we love about romantic mountain getaways is the secluded nature of most of these properties. Having the space to relax, unplug, and escape the busy stress of modern life is an increasingly rare opportunity for today’s couples, but it’s an important part of every relationship. This is especially true as we roll full-steam ahead into one of the year’s busiest seasons. 

With the holidays right around the corner – and after that, the restorative period at the beginning of every new year – now is the perfect time to start planning for those romantic mountain getaways. Luckily, quite a few properties within the Select Registry portfolio are quiet mountainside retreats, perfect for you and your sweetheart to cozy up, relax, and rekindle your relationship. 

Whether you have an upcoming special occasion to celebrate, be them special anniversaries, milestone birthdays, or even such occasions as honeymoons and babymoons, partnering with Select Registry for romantic mountain getaways will ensure you have the time and space to carve out those lasting memories with your loved one. 

From the Great Smoky Mountains in the south to the rugged mountain tops of New England – and quite a few places in between – there are never been more choices for romantic mountain getaways than there are now. We’ve highlighted just eight of our properties suited for these romantic getaways, but rest assured, there are far more to choose from. You can browse all of our delightful and romantic mountain getaways here!

The Best Romantic Mountain Getaways

There are quite a few romantic mountain getaways to consider from east to west and north to south. It really doesn’t matter where you choose to get away: The Poconos, the Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Appalachian Mountains, western ranges like the Olympic Mountains or the Rocky Mountains, or the Berkshires and Catskills in New England. They all share one thing in common: They are astounding in their natural beauty and offer a broad range of activities, from relaxing fireside with gorgeous views to hiking, skiing, biking, and more. 

Select Registry has a broad network of properties in nearly every state in the country and thus offers a comprehensive selection of romantic mountain getaways. Below, we’ve highlighted just five mountain regions and eight properties, a small selection of our 250+ properties! 

Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains, a sub-range of the Appalachian Mountains, extend from Pennsylvania to Georgia. The most popular stretch of these gorgeous mountains lies in Virginia and North Carolina. There, you’ll find America’s favorite scenic drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

Though the Blue Ridge Parkway is most notable for its incredible fall foliage, this 469-mile stretch of road is a truly fantastic destination throughout the year. The Blue Ridge Mountains are about so much more than the Blue Ridge Parkway, though. 

The Blue Ridge Mountains also offer gorgeous scenery, access to some of the top attractions on the eastern seaboard, an excellent selection of wineries, breweries, and other artisans to explore, and an opportunity to slow down and reconnect with your sweetheart. With our two exceptional properties in the Blue Ridge Mountains, you can see why it’s such a great place for romantic mountain getaways. 

Great Smoky Mountains

The breathtaking Great Smoky Mountains lie along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina and offer an unparalleled destination for romantic mountain getaways and unique adventures. Like the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains are also a sub-range of the Appalachian Mountains. 

The top attraction in the Great Smoky Mountains is Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you’ll find ridge after ridge of beautifully forested mountains to explore, charming remnants of Appalachian mountain culture, and an incredible amount of diversity. 

The Great Smoky Mountains are so named because of the frequent morning fog that blankets these peaks. There’s something inherently romantic about these layers of fog, with mountains peaking out between them, that brings an ethereal beauty to your romantic mountain getaways. Add that to the exceptional service at our Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts in the area, and you have the recipe for an unforgettable getaway.

More Mountain Retreats for Couples

Appalachian Mountains

There is so much more to the historic and beautiful Appalachian Mountains than its two popular sub-mountain ranges, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains – and they are certainly worthy of their own memorable getaway. The Appalachian Mountains actually have their beginnings in Newfoundland, Canada, and they stretch as far south as Alabama. 

However, where Select Registry is concerned, we’re going to focus on the area near Pearisburg, Virginia, and Bluefield, West Virginia – a region separate from the Blue Ridge Mountains. This area is found in southern Virginia and on the border with West Virginia. 

With breathtaking mountain views everywhere you turn and access to this area’s historic Appalachian mountain culture, there’s no better place for romantic mountain getaways. It’s a place where time slows down, and connections with the people and places around us take precedence. In other words, it’s the perfect place to unplug and rekindle the flames of your relationship!  

Catskills

In southeastern New York, you’ll find the gorgeous Catskills Mountains. Compared to the places we’ve listed above, the Catskills are a relatively undiscovered gem and worthy of putting on your list as an excellent destination for romantic mountain getaways. 

The Catskills are best known for its rugged, protected forests that are home to a diverse array of plants and wildlife and an excellent place for adventurous couples who love hiking and snowsports. Like the Appalachian Mountains and other romantic mountain getaways featured here, the Catskills offer an unparalleled destination for couples seeking to escape their daily grind and reconnect. 

Whether you spend your days hiking new peaks, chasing waterfalls, paddling down the many water routes, sampling beer at local craft breweries, or skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing during the winter, there’s simply no better place for those in the greater New York area to plan intimate and romantic mountain getaways. 

Berkshire Mountains

Our final highlighted destination for romantic mountain getaways is another relatively undiscovered gem on the east coast, this time in western Massachusetts. The Berkshires is a rural paradise not too far from major east coast cities like Boston, Providence, and Albany. 

Like the Appalachians, the Berkshires is a region filled with plenty of historic New England culture and a place where you can truly relax and unwind in a way you can’t do at home. It’s also a great place to find unique, hand-crafted, hard-to-find goods and world-class farm-to-table cuisine. 

While exploring this vibrant area, you’ll enjoy sweeping mountain views, lush forests, and ample opportunities for outdoor recreation – not to mention a cozy place to curl up and unplug with your sweetheart. 

Blue Ridge Mountain Getaways

Lazy Bear Lodge

Nestled on a mountaintop and surrounded by the glorious sounds of nature with gently cascading waterfalls, birdsongs and the peaceful rustling of the breeze through the trees. Lazy Bear Lodge exudes a quiet magnificence of mountain vistas to soothe and restore the hectic pace of life. Enjoy our gourmet breakfast as the morning mystic fog from the valley vanishes and the splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains is revealed. The Lodge is centrally located and only minutes from Boone, Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk.

Fort Lewis Lodge and Farm

Fort Lewis Lodge & Farm is a country escape set on a 3,365-acre estate in the mountains of Virginia. Our twenty-one distinctive accommodations offer a rare mix of unpretentious elegance and unique architecture where every room has a view. Outdoor activities abound with hiking, biking, fly fishing, canoeing or simply relaxing by the pristine swimming hole. Fort Lewis is also a working farm, where fresh produce is grown on the property, chickens and pigs are raised, and the pastureland is used for a grass-fed cattle herd. 

Great Smoky Mountains Getaways

The Lodge at River Run

In the Smoky Mountains one can find excellent golfing, rafting, horseback riding and gem mining. Hiking on the Profile Trail, Price Lake, Roan Mountain and Moses Cone Memorial Park are sure to delight. Waterfalls abound at Linville Falls, Elk River Falls and Crabtree Falls. Skiing and snow tubing are favorite winter activities at Sugar and Beech Mountain which are just a few miles from the lodge.

The Blue Ridge Parkway beckons visitors to explore its stunning scenery. At Watauga Lake you can rent a boat and have a day on the water fishing or swimming. Also Apple Hill Farm, Mast General Store and the Historic Orchard at Altapass are not-to-be-missed activities. Lees-McRae College is located in Banner Elk along with many well-known restaurants such as Atisanal’s, Stonewall’s and Elevations.

Berry Springs Lodge Resort Bed and Breakfast

Berry Springs Lodge in Tennessee defies the old “it’s lonely at the top” adage. Perched atop a hillside and 33 acres, this country elegant lodge was built from the ground up as a bed and breakfast resort-inn and was opened in 2000. Guests can mingle in the great room where a towering stone fireplace reaches to the vaulted ceiling or settle in on their own private deck.

Though only a short distance from Dollywood, shopping, and area attractions, Berry Springs Lodge is light years from the fray. It’s the best of both worlds…it’s right there for those who want the myriad of options in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg, but well away for those who come for the peace, quiet and beauty of the Smokies. For those who choose not to leave the property, hiking trails, bass and catfish ponds, ping pong, horseshoes and crochet offer plenty of adventure.

Oak Hill on Love Lane Bed and Breakfast

Oak Hill on Love Lane Bed and Breakfast offers luxury services and amenities in the relaxed cozy comfort of a bed and breakfast.
