Romance Awaits You!

What can be more romantic in the cold winter months than cuddling in front of a woodburning fireplace, enjoying a fine bottle of wine? How about a side by side massage in your room with soft, relaxing music playing? Would a dozen roses, aromatherapy gift basket and a double Jacuzzi help create the right ambiance? Bed and breakfasts offer all of this and more, plus you get a personal concierge to help you customize your stay.

A romantic bed and breakfast is also the perfect place for a proposal. There have been many proposals at Cromwell Manor Inn over the years, many weddings, and many anniversaries.

I often am asked to help guys create the right atmosphere for a proposal and have done so many times. One of the most amazing creations was from a guy who called and said he wanted to order a dozen roses in the room when he proposed. The next day, he called asking me to make it special and have three dozen roses. The next day, he called again and said "Jack, I have known this woman for 525 days. Could you put 525 roses in the room after we leave for dinner and before we come back." That's almost 44 dozen roses! We got it done and the room smelled like a florist shop when they returned from dinner. It must have worked because she said YES!

A couple of days later, I was recanting the story to some of my guests during breakfast. There were a couple of women who commented "What is she nuts, that's another carat!" Somehow, I think these women would have reacted differently if they were on the receiving end of the roses.

Thinking of proposing? Consider a romantic bed and breakfast for the perfect setting.
