Ready to plan a romantic getaway for you and your partner? There’s no better place than the Berkshires. Everyone defines romance differently, but whether you want a charming city steeped in art and history or prefer idyllic landscapes, you’ve come to the right place. Our ideas for a couples’ retreat speak to every love language, set the stage for everlasting memories, and define the very essence of everyday passion.
Couple Up at the Spa
A trip to the spa is the perfect way to relax and reset your relationship. InTouch Massage & Day Spa offers unique massage options, from Swedish to deep tissue to Japanese hot stone. You can also pair your package with facials, body treatments, or a stop at the semi-private outdoor riverside hot tub for some extra tranquility.
Meet Up at a Museum
Whether a first date or an anniversary, a museum trip can quickly spark romance. MASS MoCA is home to some of the most evocative art in all forms, from sculpture to dance to theater. How can you pass up the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with your partner and look up in awe at Spencer Finch’s Cosmic Latte? Or how about a stroll through the five rooms of Amy Yoes’ colorful Hot Corners?
Plan an Outdoor Date
There is no shortage of beautiful hikes in the Berkshires. From the Benedict Pond Loop trail to Spruce Hill (which boasts breathtaking views of Mount Greylock), the outdoors is all yours! Bring a basket with your partner’s favorite foods, a comfortable blanket, and a thermos with a warm beverage to show them you cherish quality time as much as they do.
Share a Drink
Something is alluring about bar lighting that can turn an old fling into a new lover or reignite a passion between long-term partners. Luckily, the Berkshires has many options, from the Berkshire Cider Project to the Balderdash Cellars. There’s also The Distillery at Greylock WORKS or Public’s for a quick cocktail or nightcap. No matter where you end up, relive your favorite memories over a glass of Chardonnay or welcome the future while you cheer with sparkling rosé.
Book a Romantic Stay at Porches
Porches Inn is the perfect last stop on your romantic getaway. Unwind in our traditional Finnish-style sauna or year-round heated pool, cozy up by a bonfire, and stay in one of our Victorian row houses. We also offer seasonal experiences that can add an extra bit of charm to your idyllic escape. Don’t wait, book your stay now!
