Stowe is a lovely destination at any time of year, but there’s something extra special about visiting with your loved one on Valentine’s Day. Read on to see how you can plan a Valentine’s Day trip to Stowe, Vermont filled with romantic activities.
The Spa at Spruce Peak
Spruce Peak offers spa services that are great for couples to enjoy Valentine’s Day and relax with one another. The spa, salon, and retail stores are open every single day beginning in the morning, so you can check out the Spa and Wellness Center with pristine views of the nearby snow peaks, heal your body, and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Plus, after or before your facial or massage, you can take part in the fitness center to stay healthy, go swimming in the bright blue outdoor pool, or just relax in the lounge sanctuary with a drink.
Not sure what to book? Fortunately, the spa offers an extensive menu that is sure to provide you with something that suits your fancy. We recommend choosing Massage Therapy and Enhancement services for you and your partner this holiday weekend, including a custom massage for 100 minutes of pure bliss. You can then add on special services, like a couple’s soak, CBD oil for extra relaxation, arnica gel for healing, and cupping.
Spa at Topnotch
Can’t get enough of the relaxing vibe of a health spa? We recommend going to the Spa at Topnotch to continue your weekend of healthiness and wholesome recovery. The spa states you can “find yourself” by choosing one of these wholesome and multi-faceted approaches to healing your mind, spirit, and body.
This spa is known for its relaxing massages, including the CBD massage with custom massage oil, the deep tissue massage to help with any muscular imbalances, and the energy healing session customized to your specific needs. Then, share in a botanical crush scrub with mineral-rich salts and aromatherapy oils with your partner to relax and decompress after a long travel day.
After a day full of relaxation and rejuvenation, you can then head outside to enjoy the snow, pump up some adrenaline, and make memories with your loved one. We think that doing the fondue snowshoe tour is a great way to get some exercise and indulge at the same time. This tour offers an intimate dining experience with your loved one, including a three-course meal and fondue dipping experience at the upscale Fritz Bar.
For those who want to enjoy another once-in-a-lifetime experience that won’t break the bank but will get you and your partner in a romantic mood, we recommend doing the evening sled dog tour. Not only does this provide you with an up close and personal look at the scenery in beautiful Vermont, but you can meet the friendly dogs, learn about the history of the sport, and see the highlights of Stowe, VT.
Grab a Coffee in the Morning
There is no better way to wake up in the morning than to head to Stowe Bee Bakery and Cafe to get baked goods, enjoy a sweet treat, and enjoy a hot cup of coffee to help you warm up, stay energized, and taste some of the best espresso in the entire town.
Not sure where to take your significant other for a romantic evening out on the town? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. There are dozens of restaurants in Stowe that can match your needs, whether you want a low-priced option or a fine dining establishment offering some of the best seafood and meat entrees in the entire state.
We recommend making a booking at The Bench to enjoy a laid-back atmosphere, feel like you are eating in a high-end mountain cabin, and watch a sports game on the TV. If you would rather have a fine dining meal in a candlelit venue, there is nowhere better than Harrison’s Restaurant.
Order the oysters on the half shell with mignonette and lemon to share with your partner. We also love splitting the Cajun crawfish and crab cakes with Creole aioli and lemon with mixed greens for a healthy starter.
As a main dish, the Ribeye Steak au Poivre, featuring a grilled 12-oz ribeye with three peppercorn brandy cream sauce and roasted fingerling potatoes, is one of the best dishes in the entire town. If you would rather stay with seafood, we absolutely love the Grilled Rainbow Trout with lemon tarragon compound butter and jasmine rice.
Nothing really gets you in the romantic spirit more so than red wine and chocolate, right? We think so, too. Head to Dedalus Wine to pick up some mouthwatering desserts, enjoy a few glasses of red wine, and chat over a bottle of red with your partner. We also love going to Cork Wine Bar to enjoy wine tasting and see what snacks pair perfectly with hefty pours of red and white wine.
Locals and tourists alike also love going on a half-day trip to the Ellison Estate Vineyard. This beautiful location offers wine and cake pairings that are ideal for a romantic weekend, including chocolate cake, full-bodied red wine glasses, and other offerings that will fulfill your sweet tooth.
