A Couple Getaway is the Perfect Lasting Gift for Your Valentine!

For numerous reasons, romantic getaways taken as a couple are vitally important to your sanity due to an increasingly busy schedule and life's various twists and turns! The holiday of Valentine’s Day certainly can give a much-needed extra push in regards to taking time for you and your lover. What better way to say “I love you” than a weekend of alone time that could jump start your love life or form a connection?

Getaway with Your Valentine for a Healthy Love Life!

Are you more than ready to take a break from all your stress and enjoy a couple’s rendezvous? Valentine’s Day weekend is a great place to start and a good time to reconnect with your honey. Planning a short getaway within driving distance to a bed and breakfast or a county inn, like HideAway Inn in Ohio, can offer a way to make a road trip without needing to brave long airport lines or enduring lost luggage. Plus, you have extra minutes to pull over for a quick kiss camera shot, check out that nostalgic bookstore, walk hand in hand while shopping for antiques, or enjoy lunch at a new café.

Many times, quiet and quaint establishments offer greater, more personalized customer service, by planning a personal getaway with you in advance, and then treat you like royalty upon your arrival. While you are enjoying the scenic route to the getaway location, they’re busy fluffing your pillows, setting out candles around your Jacuzzi, turning on your fireplace, or sprinkling the rose petals on your bed as a surprise for your partner. Their main mission is to create an environment for you to relax and rejuvenate in without you needing to lift a finger. All a couple needs to bring is your favorite set of underwear or lingerie!

For Valentine’s Day, resort locations often cater to lovers and provide packages to light the spark within your hearts. You can envision a beautiful room filled with a dozen roses, chocolates, and candlelight. A cozy night in your room enjoying chocolate cake or chocolate martinis by a warm fireplace might be what whets your taste buds and carnal desires. Or maybe gourmet wine or champagne is more your speed, sipping on your favorite type while enjoying a fizzing bath. Perhaps, you might want to surprise your lover with rose petals leading to the bed or a set of balloons filled with love notes?

Whatever your pleasure might be, your main aim for a couple’s getaway should be to handle the least amount of details necessary to ensure that your experience is an enjoyable escape from the daily routine and set the tone for a romantic night of love and affection. When you lessen your overall stress, then your body’s physical reactions will balance and you’ll start to feel refreshed and alive again. Being able to relax in a Jacuzzi, watch your favorite movie together in silence (or without folding laundry), or paint each other with chocolate fondue, are luxurious ideas for relaxing as a couple before heading to a large cozy bed.

Valentine’s Day is the day to show your soul mate or lover exactly how much you care! The more your partner feels loved and appreciated the more positive your relationship will be and that can bring great dividends to your overall life. Remember the old adage, “happy wife means happy life?” It’s probably true for each gender. When you do something that makes each other feel special, then that increases their smile quotient exponentially!

"Couples who travel together have healthier, happier relationships compared to those who do not travel together," said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, in 2013 upon the release of a study found at traveleffect.com. "(On) Valentine's Day, couples should strengthen their relationships in a meaningful way and take a trip together."

The HideAway Country Inn Bed and Breakfast, located in nearby scenic Bucyrus, Mansfield, Findlay, Marion, and Ashland, Ohio, can cater to all your Valentine getaway needs, including all those mentioned above, in a secluded and intimate atmosphere. An excursion from Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo or even Michigan, Indiana, or Pennsylvania is also the perfect distance to create a fun road trip, without overdoing travel time!
