Spend a Sweet Valentine's Day in the WV MountainsJanuary 31, 2014
Lovers! Tuck away for a romantic weekend in the scenic West Virginia mountains.
Any excuse to celebrate your love is a good one, and any excuse to go to one of the most beautiful parts of the country to do so is perfect. Take a sweet escape.
There are plenty of charming, unique places to have a romantic meal, and you can even enjoy a unique outdoor adventure together in the New River Gorge. (Yes, you can still have outdoor fun in the winter.)
Here are some deals and events to help you surprise your darling with a sweet retreat.
Romantic Getaway at Opossum Creek Retreat
Cuddle up in the hot tub in your home away from home for 3 days, a scenic wooden cabin with quaint family-built wooden accents in each room. Dry off by the fireplace, then enjoy a long, soothing massage together.
All that relaxing’s bound to make you hungry. Take a trip out from the forest haven to the small-town charm of historic Main Street Fayetteville, and indulge in a breakfast for two at Cathedral Cafe. Retreat back to your woodland cabin to share a complimentary bottle of champagne or sparkling cider, and delicious locally-made chips and kettle-cooked salsa to snack on.
This romantic getaway deal is available year-round, so if you can’t stow away this weekend, you can give your lover an IOU.
Valentine’s Dinner at Adventures on the Gorge
Dine lavishly on a gourmet buffet of beef tenderloin, lobster, roasted chicken and more at Smokey’s on the Gorge. The restaurant overlooks the Gorge, with a picturesque view of the canyon and New River Gorge Bridge.
Valentine’s Day Package at The Glen Ferris Inn
A cozy room in the historic Glen Ferris Inn, a full romantic meal, champagne to share and a breakfast from a special Valentine’s menu, all for 1 rate. The inn has been the site of Civil war battle, and was once a booming stop on stagecoach routes.
Valentine Celebration and Package at Hawk’s Nest State Park
For an extra romantic meal, toast together in the candlelit lodge at Hawk’s Nest State Park, to soft background music. Then enjoy a couples’ dance with live entertainment and a DJ.
If you plan to stay, the overnight package includes champagne flutes, non-alcoholic beverages, chocolates and rose petals for you when you get to your room. You’ll also get breakfast in the morning, and discounts at the gift shop so you can pick out fun or sweet mementos from your trip.
If you make it a weekend, your second night will be 50% off.
Romantic Getaway at Hemlock Haven
Warm up by the stone fireplace, in the hot tubs, or at the outdoor fire ring. Or head into your deluxe woodland cabin to share champagne and sweet chocolates. This romantic getaway is available throughout the season, so you can enjoy a late Valentine’s Day celebration with your sweetie.
Romantic Cabin Getaways at Country Road Cabins
Seect from a variety of romantic gestures for your loved one when you stay at Country Road Cabins— sparkling cider, champagne, breakfast, steak dinner, a bed of roses or a romance basket, stuffed with 2 heart-handle coffee mugs, chocolate, coffee and muffins. You can also select fruit and cheese or massage baskets.
You can even have the pantry stocked with grocery selections when you arrive. It’s a true build-your-own perfect romantic escape.
