Hoping to spirit the significant other away for a surprise getaway in early March and having trouble narrowing down the many, many options. The Berkshires? Cape Cod? The White Mountains? MeFites, help!
The ideal is a bed & breakfast, guest house, or inn within 2-3 hours of Boston that has a room (or, probably more realistically, a common area/lounge) with a blazing fireplace. Clean/rustic design preferred over florals and doilies; hot tub/jacuzzi/sizeable tub a major bonus.
We're into good food, snuggling up by fireplaces with books, and the occasional winter hike. Snow and trees and mountains are great; options close to good art/cafes/charming walkable towns are also welcome. We have access to a car if necessary; train-accessible places would be amazing.
Anonymous in the hopes of keeping this a surprise. Have seen previous similar questions, but most recommend towns/areas to explore, not specific places to stay.
