Most years, my husband and I spend our anniversary at The Trout Lodge on their Valentine's Day weekend. We've never been disappointed. The value is a little pricey for some people, but for all they offer, we've always been so happy to pay the price.
There are so many activities that you can join in as a couple. BUT, you don't have to ever come out of your room if you don't want to;-) The walls are a little thin though and I have heard some people complain about that! lol THIS year, they definitely didn't decorate like they usually do. They barely decorated at all and I guess this would be my only complaint.
The Valentine's dinner of prime rib was better this year than we've ever tasted it. After dinner, we enjoyed listening to the band and dancing. There's also wine and cheese tasting. Wine is available to purchase. Oh and I ALWAYS look forward to the hour long massage. The price is fantastic ($45 for the hour). Remember to bring extra $ if you want to do the horse drawn carriage or the massage. It's an additional charge not included in the price of the weekend.
We like that the YMCA includes 3 meals a day in the price of the weekend. We're happy to make this weekend a tradition!
