Unusual Romantic Weekend Getaways

If your relationship needs a shot in the arm, get away for the weekend at one of the most unusual destinations in the U.S. Out-of-the-ordinary accommodations set the backdrop for an exciting and memorable mini-vacation, even if you can only get away for a couple of days. Choose one of these unusual romantic weekend getaways to spice up your time off with that special someone.



Northwest

If you live in the northwestern U.S., spend your romantic weekend getaway in a tree. Snuggled in a pristine evergreen forest just 10 miles from Mount Rainer National Park, the Cedar Creek Treehouse offers intimate accommodations for two -- 50 feet above the ground. Set in a 200-foot-tall cedar tree, the treehouse is rustic but not primitive; a solar generator provides power, the bathroom has running water and your hosts serve breakfast in the morning. Snuggle up on the sleeping loft or spend the day lounging on the observation deck, perched 100 feet above the ground in a neighboring tree. If you

feel like having your feet on the ground, you can swim in the many lakes and creeks around the treehouse, pick berries or take a leisurely hike in Mount Rainer National Park.



Northeast

Grab your honey and head to Litchfield, Connecticut for an unusual romantic weekend getaway at the Winvian Hotel, where you can stay in one of 18 uniquely decorated cottages, all designed to pique your imagination. Travel back to medieval times in King Arthur’s Court, complete with a Stonehenge-inspired granite-slab bathroom, a herringbone fireplace and a bed fit for a king. Get back to nature in the Greenhouse, a glass-and-aluminum cottage

with two fireplaces and skylights for starry views, or enjoy forest views and a sunken soaking tub in the Stable cottage. Dine over candlelight at the hotel restaurant, which boasts locally grown ingredients, an extensive wine cellar and private dining rooms. The on-site spa provides couples treatments in the Forty Wink’s suite, featuring a fireplace and complimentary champagne.

Southwest

For an intimate weekend with romantic views, take off to California’s Point Reyes National Seashore. Set on five privately owned, forested acres on Tomales Bay, the Hi House can only be accessed by an electric tram or spiral staircase. This all-glass cottage sits at tree-top-level and offers spectacular views of Abbott’s Lagoon and the Point Reyes Peninsula from every room. Though it’s in the woods, the Hi House offers every modern convenience, with satellite television, a DVD player, coffee maker and microwave oven. You and your sweetheart can relax on the deck, complete with barbecue, or take a

walk along the nearby beach to the historic Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Southeast

For the ultimate in unusual romantic weekend getaways, stay under the sea. Nothing says romance like an ocean view and the one from the Jules’ Undersea Lodge can’t be beat. This exclusive hotel sits 21 feet under the water off of Florida’s Key Largo. Part of an undersea research station, this marine cottage features large windows overlooking a reef, a stocked kitchen, hot showers and a selection of movies, books and music. Guests are provided with scuba gear -- and diving lessons, if necessary. Make reservations at least one month in advance.
