Life can be full of distractions for couples, from work to families and juggling to manage it all. It’s important to prioritize time together, to switch off, reconnect and rekindle your love for one another. But, where to go? The team at Benchmark Resorts & Hotels has put together four locations which offer romantic nooks for couples to cozy up and relight the sparks:
Tree Top Retreat
Couples can slip away to a romantic hideaway with a stay in one of Skamania’s Tree Houses in Stevenson, WA. Elevated above the forest ground and nestled inside the tall Douglas Fir trees of the Columbia River Gorge, the romantic aesthetic connects guests with the beauty of nature and provides the perfect backdrop for cozy nights away from the rest of the world. Guests can sip their morning coffee or enjoy a glass of wine by the dual-facing indoor/outdoor fireplace, unplug in nature on the spacious outdoor deck and in the evening, cozy up at their private firepit to roast s’mores and enjoy board games. To top off a magical day amongst the trees, couples can stargaze and enjoy the beauty of Washington’s clear night sky.
Winter Wonderland Escape
For a cozy winter getaway, lovebirds will swoon over Tivoli Lodge, a luxury hotel located in the heart of Vail, CO. With fireplaces in most rooms and stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding snowcapped mountains, it’s an ideal location to spend time relaxing and reconnecting during the winter months. And, with slopes on its doorstep, couples will find easy access to Vail’s winter fun, from snowshoeing and snow tubing to ice skating and skiing. As the weather starts to heat up, guests can enjoy Vail’s landscape with balloon rides over the town. Before returning to their rooms after a day of exploring, couples can wind down and relax in the hot tubs or enjoy a glass of wine by the fire pit.
Cozy Coastal Getaway
Situated high above Maine’s shoreline with panoramic views of the ocean approaching Boothbay Harbor, Spruce Point Inn is the perfect mix of romantic costal cottage ambiance, historical character and spectacular views. For couples seeking a cozy getaway to spend quality time together, the property offers no shortage of opportunity, from sparkling ocean water to swim and splash in, beach walks, miles of trails to explore and beautiful on-site restaurants to toast the sunset after a perfect day. In the mornings, couples can greet the sunrise with a fresh cup of coffee and a homemade blueberry muffin from the comfort of their porch or balcony. And, for an extra special memory, guests can experience whale watching or a happy hour cruise for wine and oyster tasting.
Spa at Sanderling Hideaway
Relaxing spa days, long walks on the beach and intimate dinners await couples on arrival at Sanderling Resort. Tucked between the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound, the resort’s Duck, NC setting is the perfect backdrop to rekindle and reconnect with a significant other, away from the distractions of day-to-day life. And, Sanderling’s signature wellness treatments and seasonally inspired massage, body, and facial treatments will leave guests physically and mentally rejuvenated. o. The adult-only outdoor Tranquility Pool is a favorite among couples who want to lounge and sip cocktails after a morning of spa treatments. For the adventure seeking duo, the property offers dune hang gliding, scenic bi-plane tours and wild horse tours.
