April showers bring May flowers, but you've grown bordeaux with waiting. Take your first sip of spring with this week's Escape to By the Side of the Road Inn & Cottages in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

You and your main squeeze will spend two nights in a main house suite, with Monday or Wednesday check-in ($299) or Fridays check-in ($399). Or, opt for two nights in the Quill Cottage or Bergey Cottage, with Monday or Wednesday check-in ($399) or Friday check-in ($499).

A welcome gift and silk rose petals scattered on your bed will greet you upon arrival. Inside your suite you'll find a plush featherbed, while cottages offer the same and are topped-off with oversized whirlpool tubs and lovely porches.

When you rise in the morning, a gourmet breakfast delivered to your door will help you shine. Instead of dying on the vine, take a winding stroll around the two-acre property. During spring, its grounds bloom with pink Yoshino cherry blossoms, deep purple magnolias, and sunny yellow forsythias.

More than a dozen Blue Ridge western slope wineries will impress even casual oenophiles. Tour the scenic surroundings with your included Shenandoah Valley Guide, then plant yourself under a shady tree and enjoy a provided picnic lunch of crusty bread, local cheese, fresh fruit, and delightful dessert to tide you over until dinner.

Outdoor connoisseurs can hike the trails of Shenandoah National Park or take a scenic spin along Skyline Drive for breathtaking views of the valley. At dinnertime, savor mouth-watering dishes like braised lamb shank or fresh crab cakes with a 20-percent discount at L'Italia Restaurant & Bar and The Bluestone Inn.

With a $50 credit toward a future stay, By the Side of the Road Inn & Cottages only improves with time. Varietals are the spice of life, so pick this Escape while it's still ripe.

  • "This 1789 home features four luxurious suites and three intimate cottages overlooking the rolling hills of Harrisonburg. The inn combines 21st-century amenities with the Old World elegance of featherbeds and fireplaces."
