Whether you’re new to this whole being in love scene, or in a seasoned relationship, making Valentine’s Day special is always a challenge. Sure, you can go the route of candy and flowers. Maybe add some bubbly to the occasion and book your favorite table at a local bistro. But, why not do something out-of-the-ordinary this Valentine’s day?
Living and working on Cape Cod, one of the most romantic destinations imaginable, we’ve given a lot of thought to celebrating love. On any given day here at the Captain Farris House, we have guests marking any number of romantic milestones. Engagements, weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries. Of course, we are aptly prepared to help honor these occasions with a complete menu of romantic enhancements and special packages to add to your stay.
But if you want to take it up a notch, why not plan something out of the ordinary? Afterall, making memories together is what love is all about. Step out of your comfort zone and zone in on what makes the two of you so good together. Is it food that makes your world go round? Would adding a little mystery spice up your love life? No matter how you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2021, consider some of these unique ways to make it special.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller
- Plan a Getaway
Start by booking a room at the Inn. Sometimes you need to get out of town to unleash the romance in your relationship. Whether you choose one of our lavish suites or a comfortable guest room, you’ll enjoy all the amenities you’ve come to expect from an award-winning bed and breakfast inn.
- Take a Hike Together
Even on the coldest day, bundling up for a hike through the woods or along an uncrowded beach is a great way to unwind, especially knowing that you have a warm and cozy room to return to at the end of the day.
- Explore Something New
Discovering new and wonderful places to explore together is a great way to make memories. Get out a map and circle a destination you’ve been meaning to visit. You may have been to the Cape before, but there’s always something or somewhere new to discover.
- Make a Scrapbook of Your Relationship
Scout out photos, gifts, trinkets, maps, tokens, or anything that you have been saving that reminds you of a special/fun/romantic time the two of you spent together. Working together to create a “memory book” will bring back memories of why each one was so special. Cozy up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine from a local vineyard and craft away.
- Build a Sandcastle on the Beach
Cape Cod is surrounded by beautiful beaches. Pack a picnic and head out to your favorite one to play in the sand. Scour the beach for some flotsam and jetsam to decorate your sand palace, or hunt for a sea glass treasure to take home with you.
- Experience Afternoon Tea
Nothing is more soothing than a cup of tea after a day exploring Cape Cod. Join us for afternoon tea in our charming dining room and indoor courtyard. Feast on an assortment of tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets while sipping a warm cup of exotic tea.
Making Valentine’s Day special requires thinking just a little bit out of the box. Some may choose to make a grand gesture. Others will simply carve out some time to spend together. It doesn’t matter how you celebrate your love, but that you celebrate it. Come let us make it special for you both at the Captain Farris House in South Yarmouth, MA on Cape Cod.
