Spring House Hotel
A 30-minute ferry ride from Point Judith, the tiny haven that is Block Island embodies all things picturesque and romantic. The Spring House Hotel, situated on rolling green foothills, is just a 15-minute walk from downtown; guest rooms have ocean views, and the wraparound porch is a sublime spot for sipping a Dark and Stormy. Meanwhile, unpaved paths along the beach lead to the Mohegan Bluffs, the South East Lighthouse, and secluded stretches of sand. >> 52 Spring St., 401-466-5844, springhousehotel.com.
Inn at Mill Falls
Couples can cozy up in this inn’s “Bell Tower” room, where a private staircase leads to a crackling fireplace and a balcony view of Lake Winnipesaukee. Upgrade with honeymoon extras such as rose-petal turndown service, champagne, and strawberries (the whirlpool tub built for two is always included). Shop and feast on-property at the Marketplace, a collection of 13 shops and two restaurants within view of a 40-foot waterfall. There are also nearby hiking and kayaking options for outdoors enthusiasts, and Weirs Beach offers an old-fashioned drive-in that begs for a retro-style first date as husband and wife. >> 312 Daniel Webster Hwy., 800-622-6455, millfalls.com.
