I can see it now: It’s Thursday night, and you and your boo have just spent another evening eating takeout in front of the TV. Don’t get me wrong, these nights can be amazing. I mean, you’re casual, you’re in good company, and you don’t need to wear pants with buttons—the dream, essentially.

But, I also recognize that sometimes the couch doesn’t cut it. Whether you have an anniversary on the horizon or are just needing some extra special bonding time, a change of scenery can be a game-changer. Well lucky for you, these United States are home to some of the most romantic getaways on the market. Nope, we’re not talking New York or Hawaii. We’re talking good old New England.

ICYMI, New England is a region in the Northeast that includes six states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. From their quaint, antique charm to their incredible beaches, every New England state promises a vacation that’ll make you and your partner feel like the rom-com characters you truly are. Plus, because New England is known for its distinct seasons—think gorgeous, snowy winters, picturesque, beachy summers, and the coziest postcard foliage moments in the fall—you’re guaranteed a fab time no matter the time of year.

The region’s popularity can definitely lead to some high price tags for sure, but we’ve curated a list of 12 adorable inns and romantic getaways in New England that will keep your wallet intact (there’s also a splurge or two in there if you’re in that kinda mood). Ok, happy planning!

1 Harbor View Hotel

Voila: the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, Massachusetts. Yes, the view seems far too good to be true but that's just the beginning, my friends. This hotel just underwent a major revamp and now offers gems like private yoga classes, a heated outdoor pool, and golf carts to transport you wherever you want to go on the island. If the miles and miles of bike paths (bikes are complimentary, btw) don't keep you and bae occupied, you can always take a day trip to Chappaquiddick Island for some serene nature vibes.

2 Barnstead Inn

This family-run inn in Manchester, Vermont has only 20 rooms, making it the perfect place for an intimate getaway. Be sure to spoil yourselves with their in-room massage offerings and, if you happen to be blessed with snow, definitely check out the horse-drawn sleigh rides nearby.

3 Blind Tiger Guest House

Next up: Portland, Maine. If you choose to stay at the Blind Tiger Guest House, you guys will be cozying up in an updated 19th century home just steps away from Portland's Art District and Old Port Exchange—a hub for the city's best restaurants and shops on the waterfront. In addition to complimentary breakfast, you can also expect access to an all-day pantry and a community billiard room for a fabulous Old Hollywood situation.

4 Chatham Bars Inn

There's nothing like classic Cape Cod, especially when you're waking up to this insane, ocean sunrise at the Chatham Bars Inn. With a quarter-mile stretch of private beach, a cozy library, and spa, you'll absolutely have a hard time leaving. The main house rooms are adorbs, but if you're looking to make your getaway extra special, book one of the private cottages for top-tier quality time.

5 AWOL Kennebunkport

As their website so perfectly states, a stay at AWOL in Kennebunkport, Maine means being in the middle of it all while feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere. This brand new retreat is just walking distance from Kennebunkport's Dock Square (shopping, art galleries, bars, etc.) but its wood cabins and rustic main house will make you feel blissfully out of touch. Wanna get some fresh air? I definitely recommend bonding over a kayaking trip down the Kennebunkport Marina.


6 The Inn at Stonington

The Inn at Stonington, Connecticut is just a car ride away from a few major east coast cities. With 18 uniquely decorated rooms — complete with fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs, might I add—this inn will make Slack notifications and subway platforms feel like distant memories. You'll also have tons to explore, from hiking trails to winery tours (you have to go to Saltwater Farm Vineyard on a summer night). Oh, and did I mention the beach?

7 Getaway House

You may already know of Getaway House from pictures of its iconic wood and glass cabins on your Instagram feed. Luckily, they have a new location in Moodus, Connecticut. In addition to a kitchen and fire pit, Getaway House promotes a tech-free stay by providing boxes for your phones (love that for you!) and lots of books and games to keep you occupied. Not that you'll really need those on your romantic getaway!

8 Briar Barn Inn

Just 30 miles from Boston, the Briar Barn Inn in Rowley, Massachusetts is perfect for couples who like to stay right in the heart of town. With Main Street just a few steps away, you can explore the Witch History Museum and raid antique shops before returning to the fireplace and flat-screen TV in your room. If this isn't the best of both worlds, idk what is.

9 The Inn at Burklyn

This estate-turned-dorm-turned inn is a bit more of a splurge but, I mean, look at it! Located in East Burke, Vermont, this gorgeous hotel has not only on-site stables and barns for horseback riding, and mountaintop yoga classes, but also direct access to hiking trails and snow sports if you're visiting in the winter. Plus, if you're looking to venture out into town, you can catch tons of classic film screenings and even ballet performances at the Catamount Arts center. It's so perfect, I could cry!

10 Inn at Hastings Park

This adorable, 22-room inn in Lexington, Massachusetts is the picture-perfect getaway for couples who low-key love American history. Not only is the hotel's décor sprinkled with hints of Revolutionary War memorabilia, but the inn is surrounded by tons of wartime landmarks and exhibits. Plus, homes that belonged to authors like Louisa May Alcott are just around the corner and available for tours. Looking for something to do within the hotel grounds? No prob, just sign up for one of their private cooking classes for a perfectly chill (and delish) bonding activity. Check, check, and check.

11 Terramor Outdoor Resort

If you thought you knew a thing or two about glamping, literally forget all of it because the Terramor Outdoor Resort in Bar Harbor, Maine has officially taken things to the next level. See that two-person room with its own fire pit, diffuser, screened porch, and tons of coffee and wine glasses for you to use as you wish? Yeah, that's your "tent" for the night. Oh, did I mention the hotel has a pool, hot tub, and restaurant too? AND they provide telescopes for super cute stargazing date nights? Book. It. Now.

12 The Inn at Castle Hill

Located in Ipswich, Massachusetts, The Inn at Castle Hill radiates romantic vibes all year long. No, not just because of its perfectly dainty and thoughtful décor, but because it's also a wildly popular wedding venue (*wink*)! Seriously, though, this makes it super hard to book rooms at the last minute, so definitely be sure to plan in advance.

Anyways, if you like hotels that cover all of your needs, this inn will have you and your boo set with daily homemade breakfast, complimentary access to Crane Beach (one of the best on the east coast, apparently), and a ton of activities on the property—from guided nature hikes to live theater.
