Combine a package that includes staying at one of the Heartland's beautiful old country inns with skiing and riding at two of the Midwest's top winter resorts, and you have the makings of a great, romantic winter getaway. 

Stafford's Bay View Inn, in Petoskey, Mich., offers guests the grace and romance of a bygone era, set against the exquisite views of Little Traverse Bay. This charming country inn was built in 1886 and has welcomed visitors for more than 120 years.  

Stafford's is offering midweek and weekend packages through the months of January and February that include lift tickets to either Nubs Nob or Boyne Highlands, your choice.  The package includes two nights lodging, breakfast each morning, and two lift tickets and starts at $299 on weekends and $275 midweek.  The price is per person based on double occupancy.  It includes an evening horse drawn sleigh ride through the historic Bay View community, weather permitting.  Click on the link below through the Petoskey Area CVB for further details. 

Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are located just minuets away, and both constantly rate among the best snowsports resorts in the Great Lakes Region.  With Valentine's Day coming up in less than a month, I can't think of a more romantic getaway if you'd like to combine a little romance with your skiing and riding.
