After the long holiday season and an even longer-feeling January, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to plan a romantic getaway with your loved one. Thankfully, you don’t have to go far to turn up the romance. Check out these ideas for your next cozy cabin getaway.
Keep it (semi) local
Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year, making it a perfect time for a long weekend, but even three-day weekends have their limits. Choose a cozy cabin rental, like those at Rural Hill Farm, that is far enough from the city to feel like an escape, but not so far that you lose a day to travel.
Plan romantic meals
One of the best parts about renting a cabin is mealtime flexibility. You can choose to prepare your own meals in the kitchen, or take advantage of the fine local dining available near the property. Whatever route you choose, keep romance on the menu with savvy dining selections. Chocolate-covered strawberries and oysters are known for their romantic qualities, but other foods can also set the mood. So, choose what appetizes you.
Make it an event
A “getaway” is as much a state of mind as it is a destination. Instead of simply putting some clothes and toiletries in a bag and calling it a day, treat your cozy cabin retreat like the event that it is. Pack your most luxurious personal and beauty items. Bring outfits that make you feel confident and desirable. Although it might not feel like a typical day of travel to get to your destination, that doesn’t have to make it any less vacation-like or special.
Pack to interact
Make your cabin getaway even more romantic by packing things that will create more opportunities for bonding with your partner. This could mean hiking boots to take advantage of the 150 acres of serene landscape at Rural Hill Farm, or bringing extra warm clothes to spend nights together by the fire outdoors. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather as well — bringing along cards, games, or puzzles is a great way to stay away from your phone and get closer to your partner if harsh weather strikes.
