A Modernist Manse
Weston, Connecticut
Price: Starting at $995 per night
Accommodates: 8 guests
Bedrooms: 5
Baths: 4

It’s not exactly the cheapest option, but it is one of the coolest. Neon lights, floor-to-ceiling windows, and impeccably hip design outfit the 4,300 square feet. Avoid the exorbitant Valentine’s Day restaurant fees and cook up your own full-course meal in the contemporary Italian eat-in, which is guaranteed to outdo your apartment’s own galley kitchen.

An Island Oasis
Block Island, Rhode Island
Price: $1,700 per night
Accommodates: 7 guests
Bedrooms: 2
Baths: 2.5

The house’s boxlike architecture is fitting considering its Block Island location. But what truly makes this stay special is its 270-degree ocean vistas, serene interior, and windswept landscape ideal for breezy bike rides and romantic strolls. Given that the cost is the same for two or seven guests, you can splurge for a weekend just for you and your date, or call up a few friends for a couples getaway.

A Harry Potter Themed Escape
Salem, Massachusetts
Price: $225 per night
Accommodates: 2 guests
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 1 (shared)

Yes, you read that right. Designed to look like Harry and Ron’s dormitory, this artist-owned home goes all out with décor themed around the British fantasy series (don’t miss Dumbledore guarding the door to platform nine and three quarters in the hallway). The dramatic scheme might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for the right pair of lovebirds, it could be the perfect spot to nerd out for a weekend. And the homemade breakfast is a delicious way to start the day before venturing out to explore Salem.

A Stone Cottage on a Lake
New Milford, Connecticut
Price: Starting at $339 per night
Accommodates: 6 guests
Bedrooms: 3
Baths: 2

From its pine panelling, to its vaulted ceilings and AGA stoves, this Connecticut home oozes old-fashioned charm and warmth. The lush-ivy covered yard and bordering Candlewood Lake make for sweet views, and the private jacuzzi and nearby hiking trails offer relaxing and active ways to revel in the landscape.

A Colorful Tiny House
Westport, Maine
Price: Starting at $49 per night
Accommodates: 4 guests
Bedrooms: Studio
Baths: 2.5 (nearby)

Pastel hues on the outside and saturated colors on the inside (see: the lime green floors and graffiti-peppered ceiling) make this pint-sized abode feel like a funky playhouse. Partners seeking hotel-grade amenities should look elsewhere—the bathroom and kitchen are located in a separate building nearby—but the young at heart who are game for a quirky experience and are happy to cuddle up in such close quarters will feel right at home.
