Spring has sprung and with the return of the birds and the bees, you're looking for that passionate Escape sure to give your heart wings. Get ready to pack your bags and your picnic basket for a getaway to the lovely Elk Forge Bed & Breakfast Inn and Retreat in Elkton, Maryland, and fall in love on five acres of beautiful woods, nature trails, and scenic gardens.
Scoop up a bouquet of memories during a two-night stay for two in a Whirlpool or B&B Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($119) or Fridays and Saturdays ($190); or festoon yourself in splendor with a two-night stay for two in a Luxury Suite, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($286).
The charming town of Elkton is famous for being a lover's haven—Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller were married in the Main Street Chapel. Sweep your squeeze off her feet in this beautifully appointed Inn, with luxurious suites featuring fireplaces, fluffy robes, and marble-clad baths. Enjoy a daily gourmet breakfast, a 20-percent discount at the on-site spa, a 15-percent discount at Bunbury's Tea Room and Gift Shop, and a 25-percent discount toward any additional booked nights.
The Brandywine Valley has an old-school magic all its own: Get lost in the stunning Longwood Gardens, 1,000 acres of green dreaming cultivated for 300 years. Draw inspiration for your dream house together by touring Winterthur, Henry du Pont's childhood home and a premier museum for the decorative arts.
Treat yourselves to an extraordinary meal at the Fair Hill Inn, a Wine Enthusiast winner considered "a gem that may soon become as esteemed as Napa Valley's French Laundry." (We like the chestnut soup and the London Broil with foie gras grits.) Spend a Sunday on horseback, soaking in the dense woods and secret streams.
On this Escape, you don't have to elope—but you just might want to.
