1. Montage Deer Valley, Park City, Utah

Nestled on the side of the Wasatch Mountains and overlooking Park City, Utah, is Montage Deer Valley. This resort offers 66 suites, all with amazing views of sparkling Park City below. Checking in also means you're at the home of the largest spa in Utah, which offers you and your love 35,000 square feet of bliss and pampering. Try out the Serenity Suite and soothe away sore muscles with your sweetie beside you in a matching copper soaking tub by the fire. If soaking isn't enough, the spa also offers redwood saunas, deluge showers and massage options for couples.

If you plan on exploring Park City, go hungry. Down the mountain and only five minutes away, you'll find 100 restaurants catering to every whim and fancy. Before heading home, save some time for a memorable ride on an Olympic bobsled run that clocks speeds of up to 60 miles per hour — a fun reminder of the 2002 Olympic Games.

2. Hotel Terra, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Allianz - Jackson Hole

Hotel Terra is the perfect spot for an eco-conscious couples retreat. Located in Teton Village, Wyoming, this slope-side hotel is right in the middle of the best skiing in the country. Craving some alone time with your love? Take a DIY approach to relaxation and head to the rooftop where a saltwater infinity pool awaits with stunning mountain panoramas. A visit to Jackson Hole wouldn't be complete without a visit to the "Serengeti of North America." Winter wildlife trips, led by expert biologists, are popular. Bring your camera and marvel at elk, moose, wolves and bighorn sheep.

For a more romantic afternoon, try a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge and meander through the herd. After working up an appetite, check out Il Villaggio Osteria, the signature Hotel Terra restaurant. It has a fantastic wine list to sample in an intimate and cozy atmosphere. Unwinding with your sweetie never felt so easy.

3. Stone Hill Inn, Stowe, Vermont

Nothing says romance like a Vermont bed and breakfast, and the Stone Hill Inn pulls out all the stops. Situated near Mount Mansfield, rooms offer two-person whirlpools in front of double-sided fireplaces, ensuring you're always fireside. Couples can help themselves to snacks and drinks from a complimentary pantry, and breakfast is included, making it easier than ever to never leave the grounds.

If you do venture out for dinner, Stowe's historic and quaint main street is perfect for a hand-holding stroll. With excellent pubs and restaurants and picture-perfect New England steepled churches, walking the streets of this small town feels like a page from a storybook. Skip the slopes and hop into a cozy, padded toboggan sled with your Valentine and take in a dog sledding ride. A team of eight Siberian huskies will take you through the countryside by day or night, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity, letting you feel warm and fuzzy inside for a good cause.

4. Omni Mount Washington Resort, Bretton Woods, New Hampshire

Allianz - Omni Mount Washington

Opening its doors in 1902, the Omni Mount Washington Resort graces the National Historic Register. Flanking the side of the White Mountains and exhibiting exquisite Spanish Renaissance style, the wooing will start when you pull up the Omni's curving drive. Since you bought travel insurance, you'll have the peace of mind to focus on what really matters — each other. Book a Corner Vista room to do just that, and wake up to unforgettable views of Mount Washington each morning.

The resort has many dining options, but don't miss a stop at The Cave for after-dinner drinks. Modeled after a Prohibition-style speakeasy, The Cave has dark wood, stone walls and an intimate feel that is the perfect way to cap off your evening. By day, Bretton Woods is the ideal place to explore the 770,000 acres of the White Mountains. Snuggle in with your Valentine and take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the snow.

5. The Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado

The Little Nell has the rare distinction of being an AAA Five-Diamond award winner for 21 years and counting. The rooms are luxuriously appointed; think high-quality linens, rich chocolate tones, and in-room fireplaces. When booking, spring for the suite, and you'll get two private decks with mountain views and an extra-large Jacuzzi soaking tub. Even turn-down service offers a special touch with a different chocolate laid on your pillow each evening.

The Little Nell has critically acclaimed dining options that are guaranteed to delight your valentine. Try dinner at Element 47, the signature fine-dining restaurant. This AAA Five-Star venue has a cellar stocked with 20,000 bottles of wine — there's a bottle for every palate. Head out the front doors, and you'll be welcomed into the heart of Aspen. Walk down to the Aspen Brewing Company and canoodle with your date over a couple of handcrafted brews before leaving town.
