Calling all hopeless romantics! You really don't have to travel far in order to "get away" from it all. You can have a wonderful weekend escape while also not having to worry about crazy travel costs. There are so many places here in the Hudson Valley you can indulge yourself in that can give you an exciting romantic rendezvous.

Take Orange County for example. You and your lover can immerse yourselves in the allure of historic inns, estates and cottages, some with roots dating back to the 1700s. Why wouldn't you want to experience the perfect fusion of classic elegance and modern comforts, creating an irresistible ambiance for a romantic retreat? You could honestly live like royalty for the weekend, as if you were living in one of your favorite period pieces. Some of these places are giving me Gatsby vibes.


According to Amanda Dana, Director of Orange County Tourism & Film, a Valentine's Day stay here is something you won't forget! So, bring your special someone for an evening filled with ambiance, luxury, stunning scenery and all the elements for a truly romantic experience. You can stay for just the night or make it a weekend adventure of exploring delightful downtowns, award-winning craft beverage spots, and restaurants catering to every taste.
