    Making Memories on Valentine’s Day

    by Casey | Posted on January 28th, 2011

    Don’t let the day of hearts sneak up on you. Plan your romantic jaunt today!

    Woo-to-the-max with the Aphrodite package at Holladay House Bed and Breakfast in Orange. It’s a two-night reprieve in a luxury suite. Ask for one with a fireplace or double-sized whirlpool tub! One-hour in-room massages and a bottle of Virginia wine loosen you up for a relaxing weekend. In addition to a dining certificate, enjoy either a fruit and cheese tray or a freshly baked dark chocolate lava cake. This divine weekend is $789.

    Wedmore Place

    The palatial Wedmore Place in Williamsburg invites you to a luxurious Valentine’s getaway. Snuggle up for two nights in a king sized bed. The in-room wood-burning fireplace is the perfect spot to sip wine and enjoy luscious chocolate-covered strawberries. Whenever you’re inclined to leave your room, there’s a reserve tour, vineyard tour and wine tasting next door at the Williamsburg Winery. The weekend will be complete with a three-course dinner paired with Williamsburg Winery wines at Cafe Provencal. $715. Add on a couples’ massage for $225.

    On the Pagan River in Smithfield is Smithfield Station. It’s a romantic waterside setting where you’ll be greeted with fresh-cut flowers in your room, chocolate-covered strawberries, and a special dinner for two. Stay just one night February 10th through the 14th for $295.

    Cooper’s Landing Inn in Clarksville is offering their “Best Bed & Breakfast Package of the Year” for Valentine’s Day. Stay one night – February 14th – and enjoy a Traveler’s Tavern dinner, in-room champagne, silk rose petals, and breakfast in bed. You could enjoy this for $199 in a deluxe room, but since it’s Valentine’s Day, why not spring for the jacuzzi room for $250?

    Sick of the Valentine’s mush? Check out the “Stupid Cupid” package at Lansdowne Resort in Loudoun County. With double accommodations, a bottle of wine and two drinks in Stonewalls Tavern, this sounds like a great girlfriends weekend! $209/night

    There are many more Valentine’s packages (and girlfriend’s escape packages!) to choose from. See the complete list at Virginia.org.
