The inns below offer romantic locations and lovingly created environments that deeply touch the hearts of guests and are ideal selections for celebrating anniversaries, proposing, eloping or just rekindling couples' romantic fires.

Pennsylvania - The Inn at Bowman's Hill
At The Inn at Bowman's Hill in New Hope, Pennsylvania it is always summer in the orchid conservatory and you can celebrate any season at the gated five-acre estate. Witness the regrowth of nature in spring, watch the ruby-throated hummingbirds in summer, admire the changing leaves in autumn, and listen to the crackle of the open hearth log fire in winter. Rates include a chef-created multi-course breakfast. Add a special touch by ordering champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, or roses for your room.

California - The HammerSky Inn
HammerSky Inn in Paso Robles rests in a secluded vineyard with picturesque views of rolling hills and lines of vines. You can swing on the front porch or soak in the hot tub, sit at a picnic table enjoying a bottle of wine from the tasting room across the driveway, or cook a tantalizing entree together in the gourmet kitchen. Snuggle up in a robe in your guest room with views of the vineyard before setting out to tease your taste buds with samples from wineries throughout the region.

Washington - Wye Not Getaway
Wye Not Getaway in Port Orchard, on the banks of Wye Lake, offers a Finnish sauna for two and with only two guest rooms, it's easy to feel like you are the only people in the world.

Relive the legacy of Annie Oakley or the Duke in a romantic, cowboy-inspired guest room with wood floors and Wild West decor.
