Let us help you plan the perfect Valentine’s getaway in the Berkshires to surprise your special someone this year. With so many ways to say “I love you,” the gift of a getaway speaks loudly. A romantic destination at any time of year, the Devonfield Inn becomes ever-so-much more dreamy with a fire in the fireplace and a coating of snow on the lawn.
Once upon a time, flowers and a box of chocolates were all that was required to make Valentine’s Day special. Add a split of champagne and reservations at a favorite restaurant and mission accomplished. But sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes you need to find a unique way to make it memorable, a way to make a lasting memory.
While it’s true that it’s the thought that counts, it needn’t be extravagant. Look to what makes your relationship special when planning the perfect Valentine’s getaway. Are you the thrill-seeking adventure type? Or do you prefer to indulge in chocolate and spa treatments? No matter what kindles romance for you, celebrating Valentine’s Day in the Berkshires offers a wealth of opportunities to make it special. Consider a few of our favorite ways to revel in romance.
Sip, Swirl, and Ski
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Gather your woolies and head for the hills for an afternoon adventure cross-country skiing or snowshoeing the scenic trails at the Hilltop Orchard in nearby Richmond. Explore the beauty of this 200-acre orchard, and admire the spectacular view across 3 states. Apres-ski, treat yourselves to a wine or cider tasting and cider donuts from the farm store.
Get Your Culture On
Find inspiration in the many museums and art galleries that thrive in the Berkshires. From the contemporary glass creations found at the Schantz Galleries to the hometown vibe emanating from the Norman Rockwell Museum, if art is your thing you’ll be in hog heaven.
Indulge in a Little Chocolate
You’re in for a treat if you’re a chocolate lover at the Chocolate Springs Café in Lenox. It’s a feast for your senses. Sit a while with a steaming cup of hot chocolate on one of the inviting couches or gather with friends at a table. Watch the chocolatiers create stunning handmade treats in the kitchens. Then take home a box of your favorites to enjoy back at the Inn.
Relax, Refresh, Renew
If a roaring fire and jetted spa tub spell romance for you, our country retreat set on 32 acres in the Berkshires is the ideal destination. Every room is lavishly appointed, but our suites go over the top. Outfitted with four-poster canopy beds or king-size sleigh beds, our spacious suites offer delightful views of the grounds. For even more privacy, opt for the Penthouse Suite or the Queen’s Cottage. Make your stay extra special by adding our Romance Celebration or Spa Package. Imagine popping a bottle of chilled champagne and nibbling on hand-dipped chocolate strawberries after a soothing massage in the comfort of your private room.
