Continuing in our series of stories about Valentine’s Day proposals, here’s an idea for those who are contemplating a Valentine’s Day engagement. The Inn at Ellis River, in scenic Jackson, NH offers a number of romantic themed packages, including a “Get Out of the Doghouse” package for someone who might have missed the mark on an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, complete with dogbone shaped cookies. Yet the “Proposal Package” has all the makings for a most memorable engagement from the horsedrawn sleigh ride to the rose pedal strewn bed, and best of all the innkeepers will gladly work with those proposing to create innovative ways to surprise her (or him!).
It starts with a romantic ride in a one-horse open sleigh followed by a candlelight dinner for two at an elegant nearby restaurant. After dining return to the room, guests will find the fireplace glowing, your choice of music playing, a rose on her pillow and rose petals decorating the room. If the proposal has not happened yet, she might get the clue when she finds the Bride and Groom rubber duckies swimming in the private jacuzzi for two. Champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries are added, and might make the perfect place to hide the ring and/or to toast a new engagement. Afterward, spend a second night relishing the idea of engagement and begin planning for the big day!
This two night package includes lodging, a full gourmet breakfast each morning, afternoon refreshments, and all of the above for $699-$769 plus tax, depending upon room selection. Priceless given the memories of the perfect engagement.
