  • LOVE Your Valentine

    by Casey | Posted on February 6th, 2012

    Gentlemen, flowers and chocolate are becoming overrated. Think outside the heart-shaped box and splurge on your sweetest this Valentine’s Day with one of these most excellent travel packages. Do it up right!

    Does she love horses, beautifully rolling countryside, or just amazingly romantic surprises? I suggest the Valentine’s Package at Marriott Ranch in Hume. Your single night stay will include an intimate four-course dinner featuring Philip Carter wines, gourmet chocolates and champagne in your room, a country breakfast, and then horseback riding with a prepared picnic! (It sounds like a fantastic opportunity to pull out a shiny ring and ask an important question.) Choose which room you want and the pricing is between $430 and $525 + tax.

    If your dear one loves wine, the Wine Lovers Tour Package from Arcady Vineyard Bed & Breakfast in Charlottesville is the surprise that will knock her socks off. Spend two nights in a luxury suite with whirlpool tub for two and a port and chocolate turn-down service. A full farm-fresh breakfast will await you each morning. The fun part is a chauffeured tour to four local wineries! $800-$855

    Gourmet dining is the highlight at Maison Beliveau in Blacksburg with their Love, Sweet Love package. You’ll be greeted with champagne and chocolate and then you can choose your own room.  A three-course dinner will be served in the private dining room and in the morning you’ll find more of the same. If you want to add something special – flowers, perhaps – just ask! $395 + tax

    Cardinal Springs Guest House and Farm in Sperryville is offering the Ultimate Romantic Getaway of two nights. Be treated to a bottle of local wine and a $50 certificate to Thornton River Grille. If you’d like to add a couples’ massage or an additional dinner at The Inn at Little Washington, just let the innkeepers know. $465 + tax

    There are many more Valentine’s Day packages available at Virginia.org, so make a wise choice and treat your sweetheart to something so very special. LOVE is at the heart of Valentine’s Day.

    One Response to “LOVE Your Valentine”

      I think it’s a great idea to start telling people how overrated and boring the box of chocolate and the red roses have become! This year I’ve been single on Valentine’s, but last year my partner took my scuba diving and I bought him tickets to a Kings Of Leon concert. I was really happy he enjoyed my gift and even happier that instead of celebrating Valentine’s in a traditional way, he decided to take me somewhere new, fun and exciting! I love the countryside idea!
