Winter Romantic Getaways
Perhaps it reminds us of dazzling diamonds but when the soft Maine snow sparkles, there is simply nothing more alluring to the heart. Come winter, there is no shortage of glitter on the ground in Maine, making it the perfect spot for a romantic rendezvous. Whether you bundle up and head out for a sleigh ride with your sweetie, or opt to stay inside and sip hot cocoa by a roaring fire together, you can be sure you’ll fall in love all over again during a Maine getaway.
In their hopes to help Cupid, many Maine inns and hotels offer special romantic getaway packages for couples throughout the winter months. For those seeking solitude, head into the woods holding hands together. Ski together by day and warm up with a whirlpool or have a massage night.
More metropolitan desires? In Portland’s intimate Old Port, catch eyes while sharing a delectable desert at one of the city’s many fine restaurants, get pampered just inches apart during a couples’ massage at an area spa, or take a short ride to the Portland Head Light, long considered one of the state’s most romantic vistas and a top spot for proposals.
Two towns even go so far as to proclaim that the entire month of February is for lovers! Together the southern coastal communities of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport put on a month-long celebration of romance and indulgence complete with opera, vintage films and chocolate tastings, a gallery stroll and special dining and accommodations packages for couples.

Whether you rekindle your romance by snuggling in a remote cabin after a day in the snow or hitting the streets to shop in a quaint village, your relationship will be refreshed in Maine.
