One of my favorite things to do as an inn coordinator is to help my guests plan surprises for their significant others. Whether it’s arranging to have breakfast delivered to their cabin in the morning or setting up the a romantic atmosphere with candles and rose petals throughout the cabin, I help plan all sorts of surprises.
Our romance package is particularly popular around this time of the year. It includes a delicious display of locally made artisan chocolates, a scattering of silk rose petals, the cabin lit by candles, and a wood-burning fire in the fireplace. I was very excited about setting up this particular package since it is FINALLY cold enough to use the fireplaces in the cabins! The wood-burning fire gives all cabins a cozy and romantic feel.
To be honest, I had never lit a fire before in my life, but I recently had to lit my first one because a couple ordered a romance package. It was a great experience learning how to do it. Based on the comments left in our guest book, I am sure the guests loved the romance package as much as I loved setting it up:
“My girlfriend surprised me with a trip here for my birthday. The Cabin was amazing, a fall 24 hours of no phones, no tv, no outside world was a perfect birthday gift. We couldn’t have loved this experience more! From the crackling fire, to the Frank Sinatra, to just continue our journey in life together. There are times when I swear I could not be more in love and yet again she always proves me wrong. We came in love and left deeper in love. The rustic unplugged setting was absolutely perfect”
