Commemorate Your Romantic Milestones at a Virginia Inn

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Bed and breakfasts are the epitome of a romantic setting—fireside dinners, wine tasting, cozy suites, and elegant amenities. There’s no doubt that our Inn Virginia members are chosen to host a myriad of romantic milestones with everything from anniversary celebrations to intimate wedding ceremonies to “just because” getaways.

Are you looking to commemorate the anniversary of your first date? Your engagement? Your wedding? Mountain Rose Inn is at your service with their Anniversary Celebration Package, a two-night escape to re-kindle your romance. Sip from a glass of sparkling wine, and nibble on cheese or chocolates. Feast on a romantic meal at a local restaurant, and return to relax with a couples’ massage. The best part? Your innkeepers orchestrate everything, so you can sit back and enjoy a couple of stress-free days of romance.

 “I would not wish any companion in the world but you” (William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.) Perhaps your significant other is a fan of the Bard, and while a trip to Shakespeare’s original Blackfriars Theater in England may be an improbable journey for you, we’ve got the next best thing—the world’s only recreation of the Blackfriars, located in Staunton, VA.  Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast offers a Shakespearean Romantic Night at their inn, which not only includes two tickets to a performance at the Blackfriars Playhouse, but also your choice of either flowers, wine, or a box of chocolates. (This would also make a great opportunity for a proposal. After all, who does romance better than Shakespeare?)

Bring your future spouse and up to 20 guests to Magnolia House Inn’s Wedding Chapel for a complete nuptial ceremony. Innkeepers Joyce and Lankford Blair are interfaith wedding ministers who also provide elopements, vow renewals, and commitment ceremonies.

A Box Full of Love: Romance at the Boxwood Inn

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

“One who walks the road with love will never walk the road alone.” – C.T. David

With February being celebrated as the month of love, we have another bed & breakfast wedding story to share with you all. The Boxwood Inn is a “family-run B&B” in Newport News, VA. Over the years, the inn has seen many instances of love, be it from their romantic packages, intimate dinners, anniversary getaways, or wedding celebrations. The latter instance includes not only guests, but also the family that runs the inn.

The Boxwood Inn’s Executive Chef married his love, Rebekah, in October of 2009 at the beautiful B&B which also happens to be their place of employment. Rebekah says, “We feel very blessed to not only work together, but also to get to be in the place where ‘it all started’ every day. We have a great love for our inn and we were honored to be able to share that with our family and friends as we celebrated our love for each other.”

Not only is the Boxwood Inn a perfect venue for upcoming nuptials, but it is also a wonderful spot for other romantic instances such as anniversaries, honeymoons, and couples getaways: “The inn is the perfect place for romance! Guests can complete their romantic evening with an overnight stay and a bottle of champagne…Guests can also really wow their sweetie with a Romance and Relaxation package, featuring a 60-minute couples’ massage.”
