Start planning your special weekend today with these five easy steps.
Pick your romantic retreat
You can't have a romantic getaway without a romantic destination. There are few places as beautiful or romantic as the Asheville mountains, and we have a variety of cabins to choose from. Many of the homes feature hot tubs, decks, and views that will take your breath away. If you are worried about finding the perfect location... don't. We have locations close to attractions like Biltmore Estate. Some are close to downtown, and others offer that completely secluded setting you've been dreaming about.
Plan a romantic dinner
Any great Valentine's Day getaway, or for that matter any romantic getaway has to include a romantic dinner. Asheville has a well-deserved reputation for offering visitors a wide variety of dining experiences. Whether you are looking to try some new or looking for traditional southern style home cooking, there is truly an elegant dining experience around almost every corner. Many restaurants will offer special Valentine's Day menus. Make sure to make a reservation as many of the more popular restaurants book up fast.
Pick your adventure
There is an endless amount of fun and romantic things to do in Asheville, and since you have all weekend, there's plenty of time to explore. However, the trick to picking the right activity for your romantic Asheville getaway is to make sure that you choose things to do that help build a connection. A few of our favorite activities include visiting Biltmore Estate, taking a romantic hike, riding the Blue Ridge Parkway, catching a live act, and wandering the River Arts District, to name a few.
Don't plan anything... sort of
Ok, so this one probably sounds a little strange to you, but stick with us for a minute while we explain. Of course, there are those who love making plans, in fact not having plans is stressful for them. However, for others, the fewer plans, the better. So if you just want to rent a cabin, relax in the hot tub and binge on Netflix for three days there is nothing wrong with that. Allow yourself to have the freedom to have no plans other than to be together and in the end that is what a romantic getaway is all about.
Some things we just don't talk about
During a romantic getaway, there are a few things to bring, and there are a few things to leave behind. During your Asheville romantic getaway set a few ground rules for you and your partner. Make this trip all about escaping the daily grind. During your trip don't talk about stressful topics. For just a few days forget about the bills, don't worry about the kids, forget about that project that is due at work. Most of all forget about your emails, texts, and social media.
Don't count calories
Eat the bread. It won't kill you, and this is a weekend of indulgence. Sure we all want to eat, and there is nothing wrong with that, but sometimes you might like to have that slice of triple layer chocolate cake at ten o'clock at night and this weekend is the perfect weekend to do that. So enjoy yourself and don't worry, one or two meals won't ruin a diet. Plus the upside is so delicious and the memories will be priceless.
Schedule a little pampering
Last, but certainly not least, it's important for you and your loved one to set a little time aside for some well-deserved pampering. This is the time to set the cell phones aside, unplug from the world, and focus on each other and your relaxation. Asheville features several spas where you can indulge in all sorts of couples activities. There are yoga classes, spas and, of course, the mountains themselves. All of these give you the chance to relax. The important thing is to find something relaxing to do together. Life is a hectic adventure, and sometimes the greatest gift you can give your loved one is your undivided attention. Asheville is the perfect place for this.
