Sure, family travel is fun, but sometimes you just need to get away, just the two of you. If it’s been a while since you and your partner escaped for a romantic rendezvous, The Wentworth in Jackson, New Hampshire, is here to help, with the hotel’s new Whirlwind Romance package.


Starting at $879, the Whirlwind Romance stay includes two nights in a newly remodeled spa suite, which includes an outdoor space outfitted with a hot tub. In the room, guests will find a chilled bottle of prosecco and locally sourced chocolates. Extra perks include a four-course dinner for two, daily breakfast with mimosas and late check-out. Guests who book the package also enjoy access to the hotel’s new texting concierge service, dubbed the Romance Hotline; guests can text the property’s Romance Curator team via the hotline to add on extra, romance-related amenities and experiences to their stays, from hot tub turndown service to flower deliveries.


“The Wentworth was built more than a century and a half ago as a wedding present from father to daughter and her husband-to-be,” said Henry Sirois, general manager, The Wentworth. “From that moment, the hotel has hosted countless weddings, anniversary celebrations and romantic getaways. The introduction of a Romance Curator shepherds the inn’s deeply rooted tradition of romance into the next chapter by providing our guests with more convenient and seamless hospitality.”


The Whirlwind Romance package is available for booking through July 2024.
