The tiny town of Bradford, New Hampshire, was incorporated just nine days after the Constitution was signed, making it one of the oldest towns on the Eastern Seaboard. Today, this historic hamlet less than ten miles from Lake Sunapee makes an ideal setting for those seeking to establish a truly New England experience.
Form a more perfect union with your sweetie with this week's Escape to the Rosewood Country Inn, offering four romantic packages: a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($237) or Fridays and Saturdays ($263), in a Deluxe Room or Luxury Suite, or a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($309) or Fridays and Saturdays ($313), in one of the inn's most romantic Honeymoon Suite.*
All four options include two tickets to the The Fells Historic Estate & Garden, daily multi-course breakfast for two, and a bottle of wine and hors d'oeuvres.
Situated atop 12 hilly acres, this enchanting, early Victorian-style inn was the recipient of TripAdvisor's 2012 Certificate of Excellence, an accolade honoring superior hospitality, and it was also named the Most Romantic B&B/Country Inn in America by Arrington's Bed and Breakfast Journal.
Each room is uniquely decorated with luxurious features and antique touches, including four-poster beds, wingback chairs, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Honeymoon Suites are not only larger, they're also equipped with two-person Jacuzzi tubs. Plus, each room has its own bottle of crème sherry, and a guest-accessible butler's pantry on the second floor will help you fend off hunger pangs.
After a bountiful breakfast, spend the day antiquing or take advantage of your tickets to the The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens, where you can roam 84 well-preserved acres of verdant landscaping, tour the 22-room Colonial Revival home (Wednesday through Sunday), or explore the property's woodland trails. Or, exercise your right to bare arms as you soak in the sun on the scenic shores of Lake Sunapee, where hiking, biking, dinner cruises, and boat cruises are a draw for New Englanders everywhere.
Did we mention the Rosewood Country Inn was also named America's Most Romantic Hideaway by Yankee Magazine? Live Free or Die trying to come up with a reason not to play hooky with this week's Escape.
