For many of us the holiday of romance can seem full of perplexities. Valentine’s Day can either make you an icon in the eyes of someone special, or it can cause relentless misery. Getting Valentine’s Day right has haunted both men and woman for years. Sure there are all the old standbys, chocolate hearts, flowers, cards, dinner, candles, but what if you could utilize all these and a romantic getaway? An enchanting bed and breakfast destination may just be the answer. Unlike a hotel, a bed and breakfast is a quaint alternative to lodging offering an “at home”, comfy atmosphere. Like the name implies, a bed and breakfast basically is just that, however, for Valentine’s Day, many offer much more. From gourmet breakfast in your room, to a dozen roses, champagne and rose petals, the options are expansive to ensure your visit is memorable. If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, there are countless options. We found several bed and breakfast locations that offer a taste of romance and a great destination, and all within a two hour drive.

Brampton Inn – Chestertown, Maryland

Located on Maryland’s eastern shore and near historic attractions, the Brampton Inn is a plantation house dating to the 19th century. It offers accommodations to suit most budgets, with rooms starting at $199 with queen bed and en-suite bath. The Brampton has several suites starting at $229 and, like all other accommodations, has an en-suite bath and working fireplace. If ultimate privacy is what you are seeking, then a cozy cottage with a wood burning fireplace, a spa or a whirlpool tub, and king size bed may fit the bill. Cottages run from $229 to $419 a night. All stays include a full breakfast (can be delivered to the cottages), afternoon tea, homemade cookies, and drinks.

A Valentine’s Day special is available along with other specials. Your room can be romance ready when you arrive. A dozen roses, chocolate dipped strawberries, a chilled bottle of champagne and scattered rose petals can greet you in your room for an extra fee.
