If Relaxation Is Your Love Language

1. Let Your Troubles Melt Away in Chimney Rock, NC

It comes as no surprise that the North Carolina mountains make for an ideal romantic escape. With stunning peaks setting the scene, romance abounds. Visit world-class attractions such as the Biltmore Estate. Get your fill of nature in Chimney Rock State Park. You might even prefer staying in and simply relaxing in a remarkably rustic bed and breakfast.

2. Cherish Moments of Bliss in Napa Valley Wine Country

Escape the big city of San Francisco, California, and head to Napa for a wine tasting experience you won’t experience anywhere else. Unwind, unplug, and reconnect with the love of your life in one of the most beautiful settings in the U.S. With rocky coastal terrain, vast vineyards, and towering redwoods to look forward to, you’re in for quite the treat!

Stay at Churchill Manor

Churchill Manor makes an ideal home away from home during your vacation in Napa Valley Wine Country. Couples looking for a relaxing spa experience paired with a food and wine experience can revel in a pampered vacation at this charming B&B located in the heart of the town of Napa.

3. Admire Dramatic Backdrops of Vineyards and Virginia Mountains

Pack up your winter hiking gear and prepare for cold-weather adventures in the Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. As baby blue, navy, and grey hues paint the Virginia mountain horizon, share old memories while creating new ones. We suggest staying in Charlottesville, VA, for easy access to forested parks and other great attractions!

Stay at Arcady Vineyard Bed and Breakfast

Sitting on 14 wooded acres and a vineyard of 300 grape vines, Arcady Vineyard Bed and Breakfast offers a peaceful getaway surrounded by nature. Located just 6.5 miles from exciting downtown Charlottesville and the historic pedestrian walking mall with several unique shops and restaurants.  Explore Virginia's great outdoors, then return to the B&B for a relaxing evening you and your significant other will love.

4. Hit the Slopes in Galena, IL

Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort, in Galena, is the largest ski resort in the state of Illinois! For adventurous, athletic couples, there’s no better place to spend your Valentine’s Day than out on the slopes. Ride the chairlift up to the top of the mountain and ski down a 475-foot vertical drop! Then, return to a luxurious, boutique inn for a soak in a hot tub or Jacuzzi.

Stay at Jail Hill Inn

Stay just one block away from historic Galena, Illinois at Jail Hill Inn. Upon arrival, you receive wine and cheese as well as champagne and chocolates in your suite. Wake up to a gourmet three-course breakfast, then spend your day skiing and shopping downtown, and finally, return to this charming inn that overlooks the countryside.

5. Go Antique Shopping in Charleston, SC

Maybe you’re not really into all things mushy and gushy. Grab your closest gal pals and head to historic Charleston, SC, for antique shopping! Peruse glass cases of vintage costume jewelry, admire Baroque-inspired artworks, and encounter Civil War-era treasures. Stroll along King Street for wares, stop for a meal at a highly acclaimed restaurant, then head back to your B&B! 

Stay at the John Rutledge House Inn B&B

Have you always wanted to stay somewhere deemed a National Historic Landmark? John Rutledge built what is now John Rutledge House Inn Bed and Breakfast in 1763. Share laughs and glasses of sherry or sweet tea with your friends in the same ballroom where patriots, statesmen, and presidents met. Staying in this antebellum home is a one-of-a-kind experience!
