Recent inquiries from visitors for my top pick destinations indicate the word is out that a New England Getaway offers scenic beauty with intimate seclusion, and destinations like these…
New England offers miles of uninterrupted white sand beaches... breathtaking views from mountain summits... and fall foliage scenes unequaled anywhere else... and many more reasons for taking your special romantic getaways in New England
While there are many stunning locations in America and worldwide to spend special time together, New England has renowned Inns and Bed and Breakfasts that provide the perfect setting for privacy and uniqueness.
I'll be exploring options and making recommendations to you later in this article so make sure you read every word and follow the links for the details.
I’ve chosen five special destinations I believe offer the best locations for romantic getaways in New England or for your honeymoon experience.
These are Acadia Coast of Maine, The Berkshires of Massachusetts, Cape Cod and Islands of Massachusetts, White Mountains of New Hampshire, and South County in Rhode Island. Read on for details on these destinations and others.
Planning your Romantic Getaways in New England:
Basically, any dates before Memorial Day and after Labor Day provide you the best chance of avoiding crowds, although weekends in the autumn season bring out the fall foliage seekers in most of these getaway destinations.
But even at the height of summer you can still find peace and quiet if you select the right location and lodging. And the accommodation suggestions have been chosen because of their reputation to provide remarkable but discreet service.
Depending on your dates there may be minimum stay lengths at some of the inns particularly during the weekends and summer and fall seasons.
While it is certainly possible to split up a New England Honeymoon or extended getaway over more than one of these destinations, consider just settling on one spot and tour from there, with the possible exception of Cape Cod and Islands where you could spend time on Cape Cod and then book lodging on one of the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard to complete your trip.
When recommending primary accommodation I’ve made suggestions for places that will provide a memorable experience by providing first class accommodation and service and surroundings. These tend to be inns and bed and breakfasts as they provide privacy and a hideaway setting – but they will not be inexpensive. If you need to budget then the additional resources I provide for the destinations will help you find a place whatever you’re looking to experience.
Romantic Getaways in Maine - Acadia:
Dramatic coastlines and lake shores surrounded by accessible mountains make Acadia in Maine one of my top recommendations for romantic getaways in New England.

Drive the scenic road, walk along the shores of ponds and lakes, hike to views of a fjord or see the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. Places to stay include Bar Harbor and the beautiful villages of Castine and Stonington at Deer Isle on Penobscot Bay.
