Love is in the Air …

In under a week, we’ll be entering February, and you know what that means – only a few weeks until Valentine’s Day! This year, Feb. 14 falls on a Saturday, making the timing of a sweethearts’ weekend getaway to Doylestown nice and leisurely.

Need some ideas for a romantic date? We’ve got some for you. A stop at our neighbor, Cowgirl Chili Co. is in order. Your honey would love a handcrafted heart necklace, or any other jewelry item that jewelry artist Laura creates.

Perhaps creating something special on your own is more to your liking. Right across the street at Paint ‘N Pottery are some adult BYOB craft classes that weekend. Try your hand at fused glass or canvas artwork, bringing your own snacks and beverages to the class.

Don’t forget to visit Raymer’s Homemade Candies. You’ll have trouble figuring out what to choose – salted caramels, rich truffles, chocolate-dipped fruit … Maybe an assortment would be the best choice!

You might need a good dose of relaxation after all that activity. Check out Serenity Day Spa & Wellness Center for their “Couples Retreat” package. The two of you can start off in the Roman steam room or Finnish sauna, move on to a relaxing massage by the fireplace and end the day with pedicures.

Finally, review your busy day over a glass of wine or a heartier spirit at Pag’s Pub and Wine Bar. The lovely atmosphere features a European-style bar, with more than 40 wines from all over the world. The pub has 24 draft beer choices and 50 selections of whiskey, bourbon and scotch available.

Of course, with so much to do around town, you’ll need a romantic place to stay. That’s where we come in. Five of our seven rooms have jetted tubs and fireplaces – a cozy hideaway from the hustle and bustle of life. So make Hargrave House your escape destination during that special lover’s weekend – or any other time you need a dose of romance!
