With Valentine’s Day right around the corner we can’t think of a better place to spend a romantic getaway than at our gorgeous bed and breakfast here on Nantucket. Did you know that around 1 billion Valentine’s cards are exchanged each year and that in Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card? It may not be the biggest holiday of the year but it is a day when many make the effort to spend time with their special loved ones and a weekend getaway is the perfect opportunity to show your love! We know there are some last-minute, fly by the seat of your pants type of travelers out there and so we wanted to give you some details on things to do for Valentine’s Day here on the island.
First of all, we have to mention our wonderful Romance Add-Ons—these are available during a stay with us and can be requested ahead of time or last minute during your stay. You can choose from a bouquet of flowers, wine or champagne, a fruit and cheese basket, a wine and cheese basket, a relaxing massage at the inn, or a gift certificate to a restaurant. These are the perfect additions to surprise your loved one!
During your stay you can enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Sconset Bluff Walk. View some charming homes along the way and of course gorgeous, million dollar ocean views—the perfect backdrop for some amazing pictures so bring your camera! You can enjoy some ice skating at Nantucket Ice during their winter public skating times or do some shopping—we have some amazing fine shops, boutiques and galleries where you can find artwork, antiques, quality apparel, and beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry. Stop off at the rustic but modern Nautilus restaurant in town for lunch or dinner. From Thursday to Sunday at 11:30am they have a delicious Winter Lunch special going on right now.
Treat your loved one with a relaxing and romantic Nantucket retreat—we would love to help you plan the perfect romantic getaway. You can book your favorite suite and special add-ons online today and then give us a call and we can help you plan the rest!
