Pack your chocolate-covered strawberries and rose petals and head on over to Shadow Mountain (1132 Jewell Hollow Road, Luray, Va.), for a romantic Valentines escape. (Well, make a reservation first, but then do all of the above).
Located just two hours from D.C. near the Shenandoah Valley, Shadow Mountain Escape signals adorable-ness from the moment you step inside one of the quaint timber-frame cabins.
Each cottage is built with solid oak exposed beams and hand-crafted joints, and decorated with Old World charm. (See individual cabins and prices here.)
Get comfy and cozy by the woodstove, or escape outside to explore the 15 acre of mountain views and wooded land. Climb the observation tower inside one of the cabins to get a birds-eye view of Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah Valley. A fish pond, mountain stream and nature trail are also just steps away from your cabin.
Do you like red velvet cake, bubble baths and campfires? Shadow Mountain offers all that and more as part of their complimentary packages. Who can resist a homemade cake? Ahem, we think no one!
You can also plan ahead and hope for luck. Enter the Spring Getaway Sweepstakes going on now for a chance to win a Shadow Mountain stay, including horseback riding at Jordan Hollow Stables.
