"Getting away" from New England, while staying in New England, in March

Mr. Llama's birthday is coming up and I'd like us to get away for a night or two. We're in New England, and we can't travel far. Can you recommend possible destinations that meet our criteria?

We would like to somehow be warm. Outdoor hot tubs in shitty weather are awesome, so an outdoor hot tub would be good. Fireplaces are nice.
Fresh towels in the morning are nice. We are not 'bed and breakfast' people (we're introverts, too much intimacy with strangers over breakfast muffins makes us jumpy. We could be persuaded if other criteria were met.)
"Romantic dining" or simply "really awesome comfortable place with good food and interesting beer where we can talk and talk and talk" is a must. It's a plus if we can get drunk and then walk back to where we're staying.
Scenic is important.
We've been very stressed out for a very long time, and rarely get to be just together. A nice restaurant and nearby bar in which we can drink good beer or scotches, plus some place we can do something novel like sit in a hot tub while being rained on would be really nice. (I have a memory of doing this in northern California that I have never really been able to let go of.)
Any ideas for these specifications?
