It’s that time of the year again, and no, we don’t mean winter. From grocery stores to sporting goods shops, you’ll find the message that February 14 (Valentine’s Day) is the day you’re supposed to spend wooing your loved one or treating yourself to something pink, red or unnaturally girly. If you’re a guy … well, tough luck. Your choices are limited to the more manly of the teddy bears on display or waiting for March 14 where you can celebrate a “holiday” that might be more your style.
Knowing our love of the roundup, we decided to take this one day further and bring you a series detailing some of our favorite over-the-top ways that a Real Househusband of Beverly Hills might woo their jet-setting love. From pampering spa treatments to decadent dinners and Penthouse suites, it’s a great way to get inspiration for your own wanderlust … or just see how the 1% lives.
Our first package is the White Barn Inn, a Relais & Chateaux property in Kennebunk, Maine. The 26-room boutique hotel is celebrating romance all month long with the “Ultimate February is for Lovers package.”
For $1,590, guests enjoy overnight accommodations, a couple’s Swedish massage, a late check-out, and a few romantic experiences, including a private champagne tasting in the hotel’s wine cellar, a candlelit pre-fixe dinner for two, and a chocolate dessert class with the hotel’s pastry chef in the new bakery. Guests will make their own dessert to enjoy at the restaurant or in the privacy of their room.
Additional nights start at $380.
