5 Sweetest New River Gorge Dates for Valentine'sFebruary 11, 2016
This Valentine’s Day, grab your sweetheart’s hand and run away to our little slice of heaven.
Whether you’re looking for entertainment, adventure or just pure relaxation, the gorge has you covered.
1. Wine and dine at Adventures on the Gorge
Have a fancy dinner with the best view of the Gorge at Chetty’s Pub in Lansing. Their Valentine’s Day menu features wedding soup, house salad, filet mignon, 2 sides, peanut butter mousse cake AND a bottle of French Sparkling Blanc de Blanc for only $60 per couple.
They’ve also got sweetheart winter packages with 2 nights lodging, a Treetops Canopy Tour, dinner at Chetty’s, a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates!
2. Double the cozy for half the price
Escape reality and tuck away in your own personal forest hideaway at ACE Adventure Resort. On Valentine’s Day, most of their lodging options are half off. Cozy up in their rustic Lake View Chalet or their adorable Cozy Park Cabin (Bonus: both have private outdoor hot tubs!)
If you want to get out and adventure, their world-record-winning zipline course is discounted all winter long, too.
3. Get away from it all at Hawk’s Nest State Park
Laugh along with one of the top-rated Red Skelton impersonators and then cozy up for a romantic night at Hawks Nest Lodge. Their Valentine retreat package includes candy, flowers, dinner and the show, an overnight stay and breakfast (less than $200 for 2 people— that’s a serious bargain!)
If you go: Feb. 13 at Hawks Nest Lodge. Call 304-658-5212 for reservations, more info.
4. Fuse comedy and a four-course dinner at Tamarack
The Tamarack has crafted the perfectly well-rounded Valentine’s Day celebration. Gourmet food, expertly paired wines and one of the area’s best comedians (Marcus Oglebay)— what’s not to love? 4 courses, 4 wines and an overflow of funny!
If you go: Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person.
5. Sway to the sound of some local music
Enjoy the acoustic stylings of local musician Andrew Adkins. His album, “The Long Way to Leaving,” tells stories of love and the state he is so proud to call home (Wild, Wonderful West Virginia, of course).
If you go: Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. at The Tamarack. Admission is free.
And of course, there’s always renting a cabin!
How will you spend your New River Gorge Valentine’s Day?
