One B&B offers a discounted gift certificate for you to use later if the Valentine’s weekend isn’t convenient to get away. Another inn, while offering a great Valentine’s weekend with lots of extras, also offers a sizable discount if you choose to stay the weekend before or the weekend after. Still others make special romance packages available anytime during the month of February.

A sampling of the extra-special touches you’ll find include a bottle of bubbly along with fresh chocolate-dipped strawberries and an arrangement of roses waiting for you in your guest room; a gourmet dinner served in front of your in-room fireplace; a five-course dinner at a nearby fine-dining restaurant; dinner and a movie; dinner and live theater; or a couple’s massage for two — for the price of one. These are just a smattering of the packages available among our Valentine’s Getaways.

Perfect Romantic Getaways

The fourth reason in our series — “Why choose a B&B?” — is that they offer the perfect romantic getaway. In fact, B&Bs have become so popular for couples, many offer special romance packages. They are generally available for a pre-set fee in addition to the normal room-night charge. The innkeepers put the chocolates on the pillow, the roses in a vase, the champagne in a bucket and the bubbles in the bath…. then disappear. Perfect! Whether you’re newlyweds, observing an anniversary or a babymoon or simply celebrating your love, B&Bs take the worry out of planning and have everything ready, waiting and just right.

Take just a smattering of examples from the romance specials and packages listed on the Lake to Lake Association website — the one-stop shop for all things B&B in Michigan.

A Night to Remember at Prairieside Suites Luxury B&B
Grandville (SW MI Region)

Prairieside RomanceHow does this sound? Enter your room to discover a long stemmed rose, a scatter of silk rose petals and a box of chocolates. After you enjoy an hour-long couples massage, light the candles provided and slip into a relaxing whirlpool bath while enjoying a non-alcoholic wine tray with grape garnish plus a remembrance gift to take home! The best part is, you can just check the “Night to Remember” box when booking your stay online — or you can check other boxes for other romantic packages.

Next morning, enjoy a big country-style breakfast, then put on your robes to each enjoy a one hour massage in the spa room. After a leisurely afternoon spent touring, shopping or hanging out, walk to enjoy another great meal compliments of the innkeepers at the best restaurant in Hillsdale County. Retire to your room and awaken to another big breakfast before returning home. Is that heaven or what?
