couple in bed holding coffeeWe may be closing out the month for lovers, but it doesn’t mean a romantic getaway to your favorite member of Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) can’t be planned for the months ahead. Inns and B&Bs are the perfect setting for date nights. Choose from any of the nine DINE inns and you’ll be treated to everything you need to create romance.  DINE innkeepers have created perfect packages filled with everything you need to create a setting focused entirely on you two.  Whether it’s a 24-hour quick getaway, a mini-moon to a beautiful New England inn or an ideal place for remote working, Distinctive Inns of New England will fill your days and nights with the ideal intimate escape.

March can be a time of transition from winter to spring with either flurries or sunshine plus rushing waterfalls. It’s also maple sugaring season, so take a hand-in-hand tour of a local sugar house, enjoy the best ski days of the year, or explore our trails as the daylight lingers a little longer each day at DINE’s Vermont and New Hampshire inns.

We started our date night series with ideas from DINE inns in Maine and Connecticut. Today we’ll head to Northern New England to bring you ideas from inns in New Hampshire and Vermont.

In New Hampshire

Breakfast in bed at Chesterfield InnThe Chesterfield Inn has put together a package entirely geared toward date night getaways.  The Date Your Mate package starts with a bottle of champagne in chilled and waiting in your room upon arrival. Enjoy a toast to 24-hours of bliss and then enjoy a three-course dinner for two (gratuity included, tax not included).  Sleep in beyond the usual 5am alarm and enjoy breakfast in bed the next morning.  Your breakfast will be delivered to your room.  This package can  be purchased with advance notice and combined with any stay.  Simply add $145 to the cost of the room.

Couples massage at Manor On Golden PondWhile the Manor on Golden Pond is closed for winter projects, plan your romantic getaway for any time after April 1, and turn it into a spa getaway.  The Manor’s in-house spa specializes in couples treatments, adding to not only the romance but the relaxation of a getaway here.  A number of Spa Packages offer everything from massages to spa lunches.  You’ll return rested, refreshed and romanced after a date night here.

In Vermont

Grafton Inn dinnerTo make your date night a little more wallet-friendly, take advantage of Grafton Inn’s special midweek rate of $179 (not including tax) for any available room. You’ll enjoy a fabulous and filling  breakfast included each morning, and the resort fee has even been waived for this package.  Time it right and get in on weeknight dining specials including Tavern Tuesdays, and Burger & Brew Thursdays. The special midweek rate is valid only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday stays from March 1st – 19, 2022. Want to make it more special?  Add in chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of bubbly or a bucket of craft Vermont beers waiting in the room. Click here for all of the stay-inclusive amenities and optional enhancements.

Couple enjoying puzzle at Rabbit Hill InnThe Rabbit Hill Inn has a wide variety of packages to choose from for your date night or longer Vermont vacation. For date night getaways, we recommend the Romantic “Just Us” Party.  This is a fun way to surprise your mate for a celebration vacation or just to say, “I love you.” Here’s how it works: while you dine, the inn’s sleuth staff will deliver a special private party to your room. After dinner, return to your room to find soft music playing, a colorful balloon bouquet, sparkling wine on ice, a mini-cake for two, and a special bunny gift on the bed. Simply add  $110 (including tax) to the cost of your room and dining charges, and please provide at least four business days advance notice so the staff can be sure to have everything ready for this memorable evening topper. Add this party to a fabulous breakfast, afternoon tea, and all there is to do in and around the property, and you’ve got the perfect romantic getaway.
