How we chose these romantic getaways

We looked for hotels, resorts and inns that actively cultivate a relaxed, secluded environment, with gorgeous views and one-of-a-kind accommodations. We focused on getaways in scenic and culturally-rich destinations where couples can recharge and reconnect — without urban distractions or big-city stressors.

While we favored romantic getaways, we also looked for accommodations that are known to deliver the highest value for the price — weighing amenities, inclusions and the novelty of each experience.

Additionally, we sought out customer reviews on travel websites and personal travel blogs, considering first-person experiences and each location’s overall reputation for hosting totally romantic getaways.

How do I find romantic getaways near me?

Vacation time can be hard to come by, even for lovebirds. Here’s what we recommend if you’re looking for romantic getaways close to home:

  • Search for local bed-and-breakfasts. Most B&Bs offer romantic packages — perfect if you simply need to escape for a night or two. Many are located in small towns that offer delightful main street strolling and meandering paths for intimate nature walks.
  • Look for cabins, inns and boutique hotels. Instead of staying in a chain hotel, look for independently-owned accommodations. These tend to have more personality, and many are located in off-the-beaten-path destinations — a dream for honeymooning couples.
  • Choose a romantic destination, then browse Airbnbs or vacation homes. For romantic getaways, the geographic location matters as much as the actual accommodations — if not more. Pull out a map (fine, open Google Maps) and look for the nearest body of water. Once you’ve pinpointed a green-and-blue oasis, look for a rental property or Airbnb in the area. You definitely don’t need to stay in a 5-star resort to score stunning views.
