Romantic Mountain Weekend

The Boone Area's romantic options offer a distinctive atmosphere and ambience-and it doesn't matter that Valentine's Day is past. There's still spring, summer, and glorious fall for your weekend escape. You can always plan ahead-any season is prime time for romance in the mountains.

Reconnect with Romance In the Boone Area

Escape to the High Country and
remind yourselves what togetherness is all about.

Start with your hideaway. There is special charm in B&Bs-and the choice is wide, the scenery diverse, the atmosphere unforgettable. The Boone area accommodations scene is vibrant, especially if you want the freedom and flexibility of home away from home. It's easy to rent a house or condo-or check-in to a cozy cabin. Then again, the range of hotel and motel lodging is tempting too. Wherever you stay, you'll have the ultimate experience of cuddling up for some quality time.

What to do with your time together? Reconnect around a favorite activity, of course. Take a quiet trail to a scenic spot, maybe even a waterfall-for an all-to-yourself toast. Enjoy an uncrowded day of midweek skiing. In warmer seasons, play a round of golf. Or explore a Boone Area bike trail. If an active outing is your idea of focusing on what matters-some lodging spots also have hot tubs.

Or stay at a spa. Boone Area destination spas are nationally renowned for sophisticated settings, great food, fine wines, and rejuvenating therapies, some especially for couples. Take it from Travel & Leisure. The magazine's September 2011 "World's Best Awards" rank Westglow Resort & Spa an impressive second among "Top Destination Spas."

Take a day tour of the High Country's three award-winning wineries. The scenery will wow you, and you can pick up a viticultural Valentine. And-speaking of shopping-check out the Boone Area Buyer's Guide for an experience as special as the handcrafted items, one-of-a-kind works of art, and quirkily curated collections of unique products you'll find in local galleries and specialty shops. Art is everywhere, in quaint downtown districts, and at major exhibition sites such as Appalachian State University's Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone and the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum.

Also, consider the High Country's long list of scenic, cultural, and historic attractions-they're nationally-known for a reason.

When you finally raise a toast to each other, you'll find yourselves in some of the Southern Applachians' most distinctive restaurants. Boone Area fare ranges from down-home to urban sophisticated. You can overlook endless mountain ridges, or immerse in the classic architecture of a historic hotel or resort where the heritage of hospitality goes back a hundred years.

A romantic escape to the Boone Area can be as memorable as you make it. The spectacular four-season beauty of Eastern America's highest mountains is waiting to add magic to your next great escape.
