From seaside bed and breakfast inns along the Cape Cod and North of Boston coastlines to penthouse suites in Boston, Massachusetts offers charm and beauty from border to border. Tucked yourself away in a cabin in the Berkshire Mountains or find a glittering nest in a high-rise city hotel – whatever your taste, Massachusetts offers luscious romantic accommodations.
Starting in the east, we land on Cape Cod, a dreamscape of beaches, seafood, and family fun, and – in winter – a place of spectacular landscapes, sunsets, and cozy lodgings. The Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Brewster will spoil you with guest rooms or villas, and a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Cape Codder Resort & Spa in Hyannis invites you to lounge in your Jacuzzi or take a couples massage. Cape Cod is an adventure all year long. Even in winter, many fine restaurants are creating delicious meals; beaches are glorious; Route 6A (the Old King's Highway) travels past many great little antique shops; and you can grab a ferry for a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Boston – sometimes called the Athens of America – is a cultured place with luxurious accommodations. Guests of the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf can step outside for views of the harbor and the city skyline. Your package could include a greeting by Champagne and strawberries in your suite. The Mandarin Oriental Boston hotel in the Back Bay delivers luxury with Asian glamour. What about the great things to do in Boston? Where to start? How about Faneuil Hall, shopping on Newberry Street, strolling Harvard Square in Cambridge, many choices of food tastings and tours, and the world-class art and history museums and night clubs.
The region along the coast north of Boston is Cape Ann, home to some of the most legendary and romantic names of New England: Gloucester, Rockport, Marblehead, Salem, and Essex. Daytime pleasures include browsing the many galleries, art and history and natural science museums, and historic homes like the magnificent Castle Hill on the Crane Estate in Ipswich. The Salem Waterfront Hotel places guests near Pickering Wharf and fun cruises. Emerson Inn in Rockport offers unparalleled ocean views.
Vastly different than the busy city of Boston and the wind-swept coastal areas is the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts. From the glorious summer music season at Tanglewood in Lenox to climbing or driving to the peak of majestic Mount Greylock, romance is possible at every turn. Two very popular choice for very different tastes are the Hotel on North in Pittsfield, located in a renovated Main Street department store and warm with brick interiors, glass and brass appointments, and rooms uniquely furnished with artfully chosen collectibles. The historic Red Lion Inn on the main street of Stockbridge is comfortable in the way of deep cushions, genteel manners, and hearty fare..
