6 Romantic Weekend Getaways Every Couple Can Adore
Commandeer a Private Sunset Cruise
Venice has the gondola, Boston has the swan boat…and we have the “Miss Meredith.” Make waves during your weekend of romance and take this antique speedboat for a private sunset spin on Lake Winnipesaukee. Just be sure to seal the deal with a reservation in advance — folks are crushing on this cruise from May through Columbus Day.
Hit the Massage Table Together
If your love language centers around quality time and touch, one of the best ways to lay back and relax is with a couples massage. Share a 50 or 80-minute soothing experience together at Cascade Spa and feel the tensions and stresses leave your body and mind. Plus, you may just pick up some tips to bring home that’ll make those after-work shoulder massages all the better.
Go on a Romantic Jaunt up Rattlesnake Mountain
The active and outdoorsy couple can’t go wrong with a romantic hike up West Rattlesnake Mountain in nearby Holderness. To be sure you have the best scenes all to yourselves, set out early on a sunrise expedition or save the outdoor play for sunset. No matter when you set out, the summit views of Squam Lake are enough to set your heart aflutter.
Share Lovely Libations at Hermit Woods Winery
For a romantic weekend worth clinking glasses to, contact the team at Hermit Woods Winery to plan a private wine tasting and tour. Their flavorful combinations of fruit, honey, and flowers (that’s right — some flower species are popular in country wines) only add to the romantic atmosphere of their tasting room and wine cellar.
Paddle and Picnic on a Tandem Kayak Trip
Rent a kayak for two and go with the flow of Meredith Bay or Lake Winnipesaukee, where you’ll have your pick of scenic shoreline and small islands to hunker down for a picnic lunch. If you’ve paddled around these parts before, challenge yourselves to launch from Meredith Bay toward Spindle Point Lighthouse for yet another romantic backdrop.
Dig Into a Romantic Dinner
All eyes are on the menu and the atmosphere when it comes time to plan the perfect date night dinner. Lago, located inside The Inn at Bay Point, has you covered in both regards. An authentic Old World atmosphere sets the scene among a generous wine selection and a spread of fresh seafood, Italian fare, and high-quality dishes. Opt for the waterfront dining room to enjoy your time perched atop the edge of Meredith Bay.
No matter where your day plans take you, there’s no reason for the enchantment to end at the docks or dinner. Keep the romance going and settle into the perfect room with a view at Mill Falls on the Lake.
