going away

  • s

Hello all. I'd like to go away (somewhere not more than about 90 minutes from Boston) where I can stay somewhere romantic but not god-awfully expensive and have a really nice meal with my wife, on Saturday. Any suggestions for restaurant/inn combinations (doesn't have to be an inn with a restaurant--an inn with a great restaurant easily accessible is fine). Let me know soon! Thnanks

  1. The Morgan House in Lenox/Lee has a Queen Room, which is great. The restauarnt isn't bad or great but lots of dining options nearby.

      But that's a good 3 hours away. How about Rockport? There are a bunch of pretty little inns in town, you have the ocean for romance, and it's only about an hour from Boston. For a nice dinner you can drive into Gloucester or Newburyport (see this board and the New England one for specific suggestions).

    2. I'm going to Mystic for a non-romantic weekend staying at a hotel, but here's a site for sme bed & breakfasts that look cute. Not sure what the inn dining situation is tho.

      1. I'd choose to go to Oqunquit and stay at the Anchorage, they have an outside hottub with gorgerous views, a couple of very good restaurants to choose from in village, sorry can't remember names. D'amores for breakfast though, lemon poppyseed french toast.yum.

        1. Not sure about inns, but Pesce Blue in Portsmouth, NH (a little over an hour from Boston) is a very good new (mostly) seafood restaurant.

          1. I think that Kennebunkport just makes your 90 minute cutoff...The White Barn Inn there is fantastic.
