Needless to say we’re checkin’ in to see when we can get away and book a stay at one of these romance hotspots… Enjoy daydreaming about your next vaca….

1. Wheatleigh Hotel in Lenox, Massachusetts

What’s to Love: Very romantic year-round, but especially during the winter months when you can make the most of your in-room fireplace. The gardens were designed by Frederick Olmstead, and the restaurant is incredible.

Good to Know: Tanglewood — the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra — is just down the road. Pack and a picnic and enjoy sonatas under the stars.

2. Twin Farms in Barnard, Vermont

What’s to Love: Tastefully appointed everything, smack in the middle of nowhere. Super private, homey, and, even when full, feels like you have the place to yourself. Individual cottages are decorated with the owner’s incredible art collection. A hushed, darkened dining room is set up so that all parties face the fireplace and the kitchen sticks to local goods even in the depths of winter. Meals are made to order according to a pre-arrival food questionnaire; you never see a menu.

Good to know: Go here instead of the nearby ski resorts: There are a half dozen downhill trails on the property and the most fun thing ever is that they cart you around the mountain on snowmobiles. Hit the furo (Japanese soaking tub) on a cold snowy night — a car service brings you to and from the tiny shack which is hidden in the woods.

3. The Inn at Little Washington in Washington, Virginia

What’s to Love: Consistently ranked as one of the country’s best restaurants with an eighteen room inn. Engagements and special occasions are de rigeur around here.

Good to Know: The Gamekeeper’s Cottage has a bedroom loft that’s like an elegant treehouse.

4. The Villa by Barton G. in Miami, Florida

What’s to Love: Opulent and very private ten-suite villa and restaurant located in the heart of South Beach. Stunning Italian features like the Thousand Mosaic Pool.

Good to know: Yes, this used to be Casa Casuarina, the infamous former home of Gianni Versace.

5. Wandawega Lake Resort in Elkhorn, WI

What’s to Love: A Prohibition-era summer camp turned artist retreat with every camp activity from canoeing to archery. A favorite with musicians, artists, and adventurer types.

Good to Know: If you book a teepee, boy scout cabin, or the three-story treehouse, bring extra batteries for your flashlight.

6. Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, California

What’s to Love: Built as if it grew out of the hillside with an unobstructed view of the Napa Valley. Quiet elegance, privacy, very peaceful.

Good to Know: The service is immediate and understated. There’s no reason to leave your thoughtfully stocked room, but you should for a magical dinner at the restaurant up the hill. The atmosphere is an intersection of nature and elegance.

7. Farmhouse Inn in Russian River Valley, California

What’s to Love: Tucked away in the backwoods of beautiful Sonoma, the dreamy hotel has a fireplace in every room, fluffy feather beds, and huge soaking tubs. In the lobby, there are different kinds of homemade bath salts and soaps and they hand you warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk when you check in.

Good to Know: Rent a car. The Michelin-starred restaurant is amazing and there are several low-key wineries within a short drive. Take the on-site wine class taught by the restaurant’s sommelier.

8. Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

What’s to Love: Old-school glamour, secluded bungalows, and the best chopped salad and fries in the world. (Along with the occasional Reese Witherspoon sighting).

Good to Know: It just had a massive renovation, so it’s very old-meets-new.

9. Carlisle Bay in St. Mary’s, Antigua

What’s to Love: There is a European vibe here that makes it feel far away. Very good spa, beach barbecues, and minimalist, tasteful rooms add to the overall Zen aesthetic.

Good to Know: For true romance, book dinner on the jetty for just the two of you, enjoy delicious tuna tartare and beautiful candlelight.

10. Cotton House in Mustique, The Grenadines

What’s to Love: This place is tough to get to, so it keeps other people away. Rooms are utterly simple — billowing linens and soothing, neutral tones — with tasteful plunge pools so you never really have to leave your suite. Dinner is freshly caught lobster on the veranda; there’s a weekly island cocktail party in case you feel like socializing.

Good to know: Bring lots of sunscreen. The rays are seriously strong here.
