Every Valentine’s Day we try to find that perfect gift or offer the most romantic gesture to show our significant other just how much we really love them. The pressure that comes with planning for this holiday can be daunting, as we try and pin down the perfect activity or the most impressive evening. For this Valentine’s Day weekend, Camden is the perfect destination. The quaint little town by the sea is the idyllic backdrop for you and your partner. Below we share an itinerary that will take you to the best places, introduce you to incredible food, and put you in the most luxurious accommodations for Valentine’s Day weekend.
Stay: At the Camden Harbour Inn
Where the mountains meet the sea, Camden is a breathtaking coastal town rich with tradition and New England history. It offers an abundance of locally owned shops, art galleries, eateries, and inns. We recommend a weekend stay at the Camden Harbour Inn, a luxury Victorian bed and breakfast that is perched on a hilltop with outstanding views of the bustling village, sparkling harbor, and surrounding mountains. Voted as one of the World’s Best by Travel and Leisure Magazine, the Camden Harbour Inn offers personalized amenities and detailed service to make each stay a memorable one. One of the most romantic hotels in all of New England, the Inn provides ocean view suites, combined with spa-quality bathrooms and the finest linen, complete with nightly turndown service and premium Belgian chocolate. For a truly special weekend, book the Valentine’s Day Weekend Getaway package which includes lift tickets for Camden’s ski resort, a complimentary breakfast for two, Champagne upon arrival, and a very special 7-course dinner at Natalie’s.
Dine: at Natalie’s
Speaking of Natalie’s, the hotel restaurant is so much more than a hotel restaurant. Natalie’s is an award-winning restaurant and one of Maine’s most exclusive culinary destinations. It is the first and only restaurant in the state to receive the prestigious OpenTable Diners’ Choice Top 100 Best Restaurant in America Award. Natalie’s offers a fresh approach to the very best ingredients, combining local flavors with international inspiration. This year Natalie’s is, again, offering its Valentine’s Day specials, which entails a romantic dinner for two and special Valentine’s Day cocktails.
Do: Wine Tasting at Cellardoor at the Point
Over the weekend, head down to Portland for a wine tasting. The Cellardoor Winery is home to the Cellardoor at Point, which is a state of the art tasting room. Raise your glasses to romance, and sample the wide variety of spirits that The Villa offers. Don’t forget to check out their specialty list, featuring creative local blends such as the Treasure, a wild Maine blueberry dessert wine infused with brandy and Maine Gold maple syrup.
This year, enjoy the beauty and thrill of coastal Maine, cozy up at Maine’s premier luxury inn and eat at one of the most forward-thinking restaurants for a weekend to remember. To plan your special weekend now start by making reservations or contact us today!
