WHERE TO TURN UP THE ROMANCE WHEN THE TEMPS GET FROSTY

WHERE TO TURN UP THE ROMANCE WHEN THE TEMPS GET FROSTY

Romantic scenes are not exclusive to warm weather and beach fronts.

Find delight in cozy, quiet, fire lit spots with snow falling softly by the window.

These places set the scene for you to enjoy your company & nature.

TWO  HARBORS

Larsmont Cottages on Lake Superior offers opportunities of sharing fireside s'mores, snowshoe adventures & warming up in a whirlpool tub & the sauna. Check out the romance package for discounts & other exclusives.

ALEXANDRIA

At the Arrowwood Resort—cottage, town home or lodge room— enjoy the array of amenities. If you both love the outdoors, then you can hold hands while ice skating, sledding or in a horse-drawn carriage. 
Arrowwood Resort also has specialty packages that include date nights, spa deals and winter adventures.

HEART-OF-THE-STATE ROMANCE:

ELY

For a couple who loves adventure: Abandon the hotel in favor of a yurt. Don’t worry: Those hosted by White Wilderness in Ely are insulated, heated and on a carpeted platform. Spend the day mushing through the frosty forest with your pack of dogs, then arrive at your yurt to bed down for the night.

Snowshoe to your heart’s content. Help with the dogs. Bundle up—happy and exhausted—together.

OTHER NORTHERN RETREATS:

LANESBORO

You can’t deny the romance emanating from a small town that calls itself “the-bed and-breakfast capital of the world.” That means you can take your pick of cozy B&Bs in Lanesboro, but many flock to the Scanlan House for its Victorian charm and abundance of romantic add-ons. Consider sinking into a steamy aromatherapeutic drawn bath and turn-down service, complete with chocolates on the pillow. Or maybe a massage is more your style; there’s a package that includes wine and a gift certificate to dinner.

If you feel the need to leave, there’s always a horse-drawn carriage ride with a stop at a cabin to warm up.

MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL

Looking to come to the city for a weekend away? Or just need to get away without hitting the highway? The iconic Saint Paul Hotel could be just the fix. Order up the “Ultimate Romance Package,” which includes your accommodations, a strawberry-and-champagne welcome, fresh flowers delivered to the room, bathrobes, valet parking, and a food and beverage credit to use on room service or at The St. Paul Grill.

Oh, and, linger longer in your pajamas in the morning—you won’t need to check back into real life until 2 p.m.
