When a getaway needs that certain spark

A lot is riding on your choice of where to go for a romantic getaway in Michigan. You want it to go well. In fact, you need this romantic getaway to be nothing short of perfect.

Use our checklist below to plot your escape. A reason to consider the #MichBnB inns on this page is that each offers a slightly different take on the experience of a romantic getaway in Michigan.

First thing to consider is the occasion.

Are you celebrating? (Congrats.)

Are you making up to your beloved after a mistake or a fight? (Good move.)

Are you coping with one of life’s sad or stressful events? (Very thoughtful.)

Or is it just because you love each other so much? (Go to the head of the class.)

What’s high on your loved one’s checklist for a romantic getaway in Michigan?

Privacy? Ask the innkeeper what’s on the other side of the wall of your prospective room.

Fireplace? Many B&B rooms feature all-season, remote-control fireplaces whose heat output you can adjust. All over the state, you can find B&Bs with fireplaces in all or most rooms, including:

Jetted tub? If it matters to you, check to see if accommodates two people, whether bath salts are provided or allowed, and whether hours of use are restricted (because jetted tubs can be noisy). Does the room have robes?

B&Bs with jetted or soaking tubs in every room include: Goldberry Woods, Union Pier;  Hotel Saugatuck B&B, Saugatuck; Prairieside Suites B&B, Grandville, and A Dove Nest B&B, Kingston.

Outdoor hot tubs at B&Bs are fewer in number these days, but two B&Bs with hot tubs are:  Himelhoch B&B, Caro, and Huron House in Oscoda.

Romantic extras? On request, many innkeepers will arrange for such niceties as a dozen roses in a vase, therapeutic massage or other spa services, in-room breakfast, special desserts, or even a path strewn with silk rose petals.

As one example, The Historic Webster House B&B in Bay City offers a spa and sauna room that you can reserve the use of in combination with any of its suites. You’ll have exclusive access to a large whirlpool tub for two, cedar dry sauna, overhead double rain shower, and you book a couples massage and other additional spa treatments.

Area activities? Whether you enjoy biking or beer tasting, casinos or culture, woods or waterfront, city life or the middle of nowhere, you’re sure to find a B&B whose setting matches your expectations for a romantic getaway in Michigan.
