Geneva On The Lake
Geneva, New York
You don’t need a passport to revel in the romance of an authentic Italian villa. With its stately white exterior and formal gardens bordered by the deep blue waters of Seneca Lake, Geneva On The Lake provides the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding — or your own private celebration. Whatever the occasion, romance awaits at Geneva On The Lake.
Modeled after the Villa Lancellotti in Italy, Geneva On The Lake gives you the best of both worlds: the exotic charm and beauty of an Italian villa with all the amenities and entertainment you’d expect from a luxury resort in upstate New York. Geneva On The Lake’s packages are a delightful way to begin any romance, with locally-made wines, sunset lake cruises, and an in-suite massage for two. We fell for the Whirlpool Suite and its mirrored spa room with whirlpool tub and sparkling crystal chandelier. Geneva On The Lake’s landmark villa, included on the National Register of Historic Places, is home to Italian marble fireplaces, canopy beds and views of the surrounding gardens to complete your picturesque romantic escape. The luxury continues into the Lancellotti Dining Room, where candlelight, live entertainment and delicacies like pan seared duck breast with foie gras create the ultimate romantic dinner for two.
Geneva On The Lake is a one-hour drive from Rochester and Syracuse International Airports. From New York State Thruway, take Exit 42 then Route 14 south for seven miles to the resort.
Geneva On The Lake was voted one of the world’s most beautiful inns by Bride Magazine.
Mirror Lake Inn and Spa
Lake Placid, New York
So often we encounter resorts that claim to offer accommodations — and entertainment — for all four seasons. Surrounded by New York’s highest peaks and the deep blue waters of Lake Placid, Mirror Lake Inn and Spa is one that truly lives up to this promise, making the inn the perfect romantic escape in every season.
Take in fall color displays from Mirror Lake Inn and Spa’s oversized hot tubs. Slip on your mittens for some pairs skating on the inn’s private rink. Slide into a pair of skis for a run down Whiteface Mountain. Sip champagne during sunset cruises on Lake Placid. Or go all out with a romance package complete with three nights in a luxury suite, candlelit dinner and daily spa services for two. The opportunities for romance are endless at Mirror Lake Inn and Spa. The accommodations at Mirror Lake Inn and Spa are stately—never stuffy. A custom-made oak spiral staircase leads to a loft with bed and oversized whirlpool in the Signature Suite, while the crystal chandeliers and hand carved canopy beds of the Adirondack Suite combine mountain living with modern luxury. Sample pan-seared diver scallops and pumpkin bisque during an intimate dinner for two at The View restaurant.

Winter Clove Inn
Round Top, New York
Winter Clove Inn has long been famous for its fine food, lodging and country hospitality. But we think this Hudson Valley inn is so much more than that. It’s a return to romance with manicured lawns, mature trees and a wraparound porch with Hudson River views—all straight out of a 19th century painting.
If the picture-perfect scenery of the Winter Clove Inn doesn’t inspire your inner romantic, we don’t know what will. Perhaps hitting the slopes at Windham Mountain, a few twirls around an indoor ice skating rink and a tour of the scenic countryside on horseback will do the trick? Or hike to the waterfall, where Winter Clove Creek flows under covered bridges, cascades down rock cliffs and empties into a pristine swimming hole. Finish your evening with antique bowling in the renovated carriage house. Winter Clove Inn pairs a plethora of romance-inspiring activities with a full country breakfast, picnic lunch to take with you and a complimentary bottle of wine with dinner in the Fireside Dining Room. Beat the winter blues in the cozy, comfortable guest rooms of this white country inn. This home away from home takes historic colonial décor and pairs it with 21st century amenities for ultimate comfort.
From New York City, take I-87 to Route 32; turn left and continue for approximately 11 miles. Drive through Round Top and turn left onto Heart's Content Road. Travel three miles and turn left onto Winter Clove Road.

Hotel Mountain Brook
Tannersville, New York
Sometimes the greatest romantic gestures are also the simplest. Nobody understands this better than Hotel Mountain Brook, a rustic-romantic escape tucked in the Catskill Mountains. You couldn’t ask for a better place to get back to the basics and fall in love all over again.
From the dirt road you drive in on to the hotel’s cedar shingles, rough-hewn log porch, and wood paneled walls, every aspect of your stay at Hotel Mountain Brook is steeped in country charm. Snuggle up on leather couches in front of a crackling fire in Hotel Mountain Brook’s cozy great room. Sink into brightly painted wicker chairs on the hotel’s porch for breathtaking mountain views and tea service for two. Romantic walks on mountain trails and two-person swings on private cabin porches are perfect viewpoints for fall foliage so spectacular it looks like it’s been painted on. Hotel Mountain Brook offers the simplistic lifestyle of a true mountain escape. But don’t mistake simple for plain. Spacious cabins, cottages and rooms in the lodge have all the elegant appointments you’d expect of a luxury resort. Wake up to scrumptious breakfast in the fireside dining room (we loved the stacks of pancakes smothered in locally-made maple syrup) and while away the afternoon in oversized whirlpool tubs.
From the South, take NY Thruway to Saugerties, then turn right onto 32 North. Bear left onto Route 32 and take another left onto Route 23 to Tannersville. Take a right onto Hill Street and proceed to Hotel Mountain Brook on your left.
Tannersville, home to Hotel Mountain Brook, gets its name from a tannery that existed until the town’s supply of essential hemlock bark was diminished.
