The last ornament has been packed away and the final sip of champagne has been drained, while the new year stretches out before us like a field of freshly fallen snow. As often happens at this time of year, the winter blues begin to take over, but the best way to cure those blues is by making plans—plans to explore, plans to travel, and because Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, plans to show the love of your life that the romance will never die! If your plans include a visit to Smith Mountain Lake and a stay in one of our vacation love nests, this guide to romantic activities will be all your Valentine needs to stay convinced you will love him or her forever!

Simply Beautiful

2020 was a rough year, yet your love stayed the course and will continue to with a little pre-planning during your Virginia getaway. A beautiful bouquet of flowers ordered from Smith Mountain Flowers in Moneta, her favorite pastry picked up in advance from My Way Bakery, and a fresh cup of coffee easily brewed in one of our fully equipped kitchens. Following these simple steps will make this Smith Mountain Lake romantic escape one that neither of you will soon forget!

The Couple Who Spas Together

Taking time for a little pampering is always a good idea, and on Valentine’s Day a couple’s massage offered by True Organics Spa at 130 Scruggs Road #104 in Moneta is the perfect way to do so! Offering a variety of packages for two, including a Spa Date Night that features rock and soul feet retreats, facials, and hot stone massages, this special activity will ensure that your Valentine’s Day starts (or ends!) on the right note.

Bonfire Under the Stars

The luxury amenities that come with many of our properties offer new ways to show your love. Sipp wine on the deck as the sun sets over the lake, share a moment in the hot tub in the cool night air, or cuddle together around a roaring fire, either in the fireplace inside or the fire pit next to the lake. Our homes are designed to spoil and pamper, and you and your Valentine deserve both. Reserve your Valentine’s Day hideaway today and fall in love all over again!
