Celebrate love in Coeur d’Alene
Love is in the air throughout Coeur d’Alene, especially during Valentine’s Day weekend. And since that’s coming up soon — only weeks away — we want to help you celebrate romance.
Get in the mood with HOT WINTER NIGHTS at the Coeur d’Alene Resort’s infinity pool Feb. 14-16, from 6:30-8:30 pm or 9-11 pm. Your overnight stay package includes private transportation to the heated lakeside pool and a two-hour soak and yes, the lakeside bar is open (starting at $199).
Practice self-love that you and your partner can both enjoy with the Resort’s Live Well Retreats, including the ROMANCE & RELAXATION RETREAT. Check into your lakeside room Sunday, Feb. 16, and book a 50-minute couples massage that day or the next. Wake early for partners yoga on Monday, then enjoy breakfast — with champagne, of course — and a late checkout (starting at $175).
Ready for a romantic location to plant the perfect kiss? Coeur d’Alene will not disappoint. Walk out by the water or on the boardwalk for sweeping views of the lake. Take a stroll along picturesque Sherman Avenue. At the Art Spirit Gallery, pose for a smooch and a photo next to the giant welded rabbit sculpture with you and your “somebunny” special.
Honey Eatery is one of many romantic spots to settle in for an INTIMATE MEAL, either snuggled into the downstairs lounge chairs or cozied up at the bar. Nearby, the NYC Piano Bar has brought back their Valentine’s Day special ($69 per couple). Enjoy a gourmet meal, bottle of wine and the always-entertaining dueling pianos, Feb. 14-15.
What could be more romantic than a SUNSET DINNER CRUISE, Feb. 14-15? Order a glass of wine, sit back and relax as you tour the lake during one of its most magical times, while a gourmet buffet dinner is readied for you to leisurely enjoy ($58 per person).
