Although just about any destination can be romantic if you're with the person you love, there's no denying that some places exude romance more than others. From tropical beaches to mountain getaways, one thing many of these places have in common is that there are hotels with cozy rooms that draw lovers in and encourage them to stay.
Big hotels can sometimes offer luxuries that enhance romantic getaways, but there's nothing quite like the personal treatment you'll get at one of the boutique B&Bs and inns featured here. Many of these inns are small enough that each room is unique, giving you and your sweetheart the perfect opportunity to choose the vibe and decor you prefer.
Of course, each of these inns would be an ideal option for a Valentine's Day trip, but remember that romance isn't limited to one day a year - surprise Snookums with a trip to one of these romantic inns any time of the year and you're sure to be rewarded handsomely.
Here are 12 of the most romantic B&Bs in the US.
