Make Your Marriage Proposal Special: Consider a Bed and Breakfast

Mar 29, 2008
Few events in life are as memorable as the moment you ask somebody to share the rest of your life with you. Why not give that special occasion a spectacular backdrop like a sunset in Hawaii or a majestic mountain setting? Special bed and breakfast inns throughout our country afford hassle-free access to some of the most amazing natural landscapes America has to offer. Set the tone of your future life together with invigorating outdoor adventure followed by cozy indoor luxury - just remember to pack the ring!

Ask the Question Near the Ocean

Located in the West Maui Mountains, the Ho'oilo House might also make a great place for the honeymoon, too. With grand views of the ocean (which has some great spots for snorkeling with sea turtles and a wide variety of fish), you can also catch the sun rising on Mt. Haleakala at this inn. But don't stop there, consider doing the proposal on a helicopter tour or after zip-lining over the treetops. Any number of adventures could make the proposal a special event.

Think Cherry Blossoms

Perhaps Washington, D.C., sounds more patriotic than romantic, but consider spring time. The pink-white blossoms of the cherry trees can provide the ideal setting. Set up base at the Embassy Circle Guest House, which is at Dupont Circle, and hit the city. In spring, you will also beat the humidity and heat (as well as swarms of tourist traffic). With the cherry blossoms in bloom and showering you in a breeze of flowers, you'll be sure to capture the moment.

Propose on a Glacier

The most adventurous might consider a special trip to Alaska. Built one hundred years ago Alaska's Capital Inn will surround you with history and spectacular natural beauty. By day, venture out for whale watching, glacier climbing, kayaking, or salmon or halibut fishing. Seafood lovers are in luck, because local seafood is frequently incorporated into the gourmet breakfast served daily.

Desert Skies and Red Rocks

The Adobe Grand Villas, an Arizona bed and breakfast, was honored as one of the top romantic inns of the year in 2006 by American Historic Inns. It's not just the inn that is superb, but the location is set against Thunder Mountain's red rocks and the wide desert sky. And if you want a twist to the occasion, you might consider the Out of Africa Wildlife Park as a unique place to pop the question.

Amid Pine Trees and a Mountain Lake

This California bed and breakfast is set amid the pine trees and mountains of Big Bear. Chill a bottle of champagne in front of the fireplace. Or take a picnic basket while going horseback riding. Winter or summer, there's always a romantic option to make the perfect experience at the Gold Mountain Manor.

Whether it's under the desert skies in Arizona or by a mountain lake in California, make the moment a memoriable one.
