Vino Valentine

Virginia is home to some amazing vineyards and what better time to go on a tasting tour? Head up to Lansdowne Resort in the rolling hills of Leesburg, where stunning mountain views and local vineyards abound! Our particular favorites are Tarara, Fabbioli and Lost Creek Winery! Stop in charming Old Town Leesburg for some antiques shopping and delicious eats or explore the local hiking trails if you’re more adventurous!

History Lovers

There’s something magical about historic estates—walking the hallways that countless generations have walked before, the stalwart beauty and grace of a home that has stood the test of time. Surrounded by old-growth trees, beautiful gardens and magnificent colonial architecture, the Inn at Willow Grove is a perfect romantic getaway for the history buff couple. After a long day walking the grounds of nearby Montpelier, head to the spa for some restorative treatments.

Looking to continue your Washington family research? Once you’ve visited Ferry Farm and the Mary Washington House, head down to Abingdon for a luxurious (and educational) stay at the Martha Washington Inn & Spa. Beware: this unique hotel is purportedly home to ghosts!

Once In A Lifetime Love

Looking for a weekend getaway that they’ll never forget? Book a treehouse (yes, you read that right!) at the Lodge & Cottages at Primland Resort. Tucked up in the branches, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the Kibler Valley and North Carolina piedmont from the comfort of a vast private deck. Primland is the perfect place to unplug and unwind with your love!

Trying to find a truly unique place to wow the *light* of your life? (See what we did there?) Look no further than Smithfield Station Inn where you can stay in Virginia’s only lighthouse hotel! Modeled after a working Chesapeake Bay Style lighthouse, there are two suites from which you can admire the panoramic views of the James River or relax in a jacuzzi!
