Designed with Romance in Mind: Looking Beyond the Basics When Planning the Perfect Getaway

Having sold their award-winning inn on Cape Cod in 2015, Annabelle and Simon Hunton set their sights squarely on their dream of owning a boutique inn on Martha’s Vineyard. After a long search they managed to acquire an old inn in Vineyard Haven that would be perfect for transformation. When renovations were complete the innkeepers found themselves with Nobnocket Boutique Inn, a property whose gracious interior and luxurious gardens were designed for romance.

But romance is only part of the picture.  Overall comfort plays a large part in the enjoyment of any getaway.  And so Nobnocket’s hosts suggest you consider the following when making your plans:

1) Location, location, location.  Sure you want a bliss-inducing setting.  But at what cost? Perfection often occurs in a balance between seclusion and the availability of town and transport so you come and go easily and without undue planning and complications.

2) Concierge services and local knowledge add a wonderful dimension to your travels and contribute a feeling of overall well-being and ease with your surroundings.

3) Attention to the details that make your comfort tantamount: Start every morning of your stay ‘on the right side of the bed’ – make sue your accommodation offers an in-room breakfast option and smooths the way into your day with thoughtful services such as complimentary bikes.

4) Nothing says de-stress like a spacious and well-appointed bath area.

5) Paperless check-in and flexible guest communication options help to make your stay stress free from start to finish.
