Forget Candy Hearts! Take a Winter Ski and Wildlife Valentine’s Weekend?

With Valentine’s Day coming up, you might be thinking of doing something out of the ordinary. That was my plan – do something different! So off in cyber-space I traveled for some unusual ideas. Now, with several ideas in mind, I approached hubby about it! Just imagine my suprise and disappointment to find out he was going to be working Saturdays for a couple months! Bummer! Oh well, that doesn’t stop me from telling you about one of the things I come up with.

BentwoodLodge_in_winter_sm What’s more romantic than a Wild West getaway with your loved one over Valentine’s Day? Playing Cupid, the innkeepers at The Bentwood have come up with a special Natural Valentine’s Weekend Package guaranteed to be more impressive than a bouquet of roses and a box of chocolates. Couples check-in on Friday, February 14 and spend two pampered nights in log lodge luxury. The next day is reserved for a guided naturalist hike followed by a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge. Also included is one Bistro Dinner for two, a four-course feast of natural, regional offerings (including trout and bison) and a special breakfast in bed made to order and delivered to your door (you choose which dinner night and pampered morning). Guests may substitute the wildlife excursion for two 1-day lift tickets at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Additional nights and activities such as snowmobiling, dog sledding and skiing are available upon request, subject to availability. Secluded yet close to all the action, Jackson Hole’s Bentwood Inn is surrounded by a world of winter fun and romance. Just five scenic miles into the town of Jackson in one direction and five miles in the other to world class skiing under the Grand Tetons, The Bentwood couldn’t be better situated. And to sweeten the deal, the Inn has just announced three winter packages packed with activities and value. BentwoodroomThere’s good reason why Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was voted the #1 Overall Ski Resort in North America for 2014 in SKI Magazine Reader’s Poll. From snow quality and lifts, to dining and service those in-the-know annually rank it top of the class.  The Bentwood Inn has been named “One of North America’s Top Ten Ecolodges” for its dedication to sustainable practices. Combine the two and the experience is bound to be rich and rewarding.

Bentwood logoAbout The Bentwood Inn The Bentwood Inn is a four season, award-winning luxury log lodge nestled on 3.5 acres of Jackson Hole solitude where all year long wildlife can be seen passing through the property. Built in 1995, the Inn was constructed with massive 200 year old logs sustainably harvested after the Great Yellowstone Fire of 1988. There is over 6,000 square feet of luxury to enjoy; including the Great Room with a three-story river rock fireplace and baby grand piano. Each guest room has a private fireplace and personal deck or porch, and most have a king bed and jetted spa tub. The large outdoor back deck facing the Grand Tetons is perfect for relaxing and socializing in warm weather, and ideal for hosting weddings and events.


I think this would be an awesome, romantic trip! What do you think?

    I think that would be a romantic getaway. I used to live in Alaska and I miss it. I feel like the snow made everything better. I think that would be something to consider for future years for myself. Thanks for posting.

    This would be my ideal getaway. People always wonder why I never go for any hot-spot sort of vacations… probably because I’m a rustic girl at heart 😉
