Romance is alive in these snowy spa getaways
Mess up your Valentine’s Day with the wrong gift? There’s still some time to save face (and your relationship) with a romantic trip for two. These specials are geared toward sprucing up your love life, and they aren’t just for Feb. 14.
New York City, N.Y.
For couples looking to go beyond flowers and chocolates, the Lofty Pleasures Romance package literally puts you “on cloud nine” with a helicopter ride over Manhattan. After taking in the view, couples return to find their room stocked with a surprise treasure chest and champagne. Since Tuscany NYC is a new property, you’ll take advantage of grand opening rates beginning at $239; the Lofty Pleasures Romance package is additional.
Schroon Lake Bed and Breakfast
Schroon Lake, N.Y.
The B&B, nestled high up in the Adirondack mountains, offers five well-appointed room choices. Make a memory worthy of a Currier and Ives postcard with a 45-minute sleigh ride through the Adirondacks, complete with blankets and hot cider.
Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa, Atlantic City, N.J.
This Atlantic City getaway has a plethora of packages for the discriminating romantic, such as Winecation, Wake Up Smiling or even the Up All Night special, which involves food, drink, entertainment, spa treatments and more.
Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort
Lake Placid, N.Y.
Get mushy with a dogsled ride around Mirror Lake in the Adirondacks, complimentary with the resort’s (still running) Valentine’s Day package, which includes a host of romantic add-ons to make the experience cozy and complete. Is your sweetie green? The Golden Arrow became the first and only resort in the United States to achieve a 5 Green Leaf rating from the Audubon Society for its eco initiatives, which include guest recycling programs and alternative energy sources like solar panels.
