A Winter Couple's Retreat

In the winter months, sometimes all we want to do is get away and snuggle up with the one we love. Cozy, small-town Gettysburg has the perfect balance of recreational activities and relaxation for that much-needed long-weekend getaway.

Day 1

In the winter months, sometimes all we want to do is get away and snuggle up with the one we love. Cozy, small-town Gettysburg has the perfect balance of recreational activities and relaxation for that much-needed long-weekend getaway.

When you arrive Friday night, treat yourselves to a romantic dinner downtown. Once you’re satisfied by your amazing meal, enjoy drinks and conversation at one of our wineries and cideries in town or finish your day with a visit to one of Gettysburg’s new escape rooms. You’ll build up your teamwork skills as you work together to get out of one of these uniquely themed rooms. Once you’re ready to get some rest, choose one of our many cozy winter retreats to cuddle up in. 

Day 2

Conveniently located just minutes from downtown Gettysburg, Liberty Mountain Resort provides all-day fun. Hit the slopes, or if skiing and snowboarding aren’t your thing, try out snow tubing or their new ice skating rink. Take a lunch break at the resort’s tavern. When you’re all tired out, get a couple’s massage at the resort’s spa. Once you’re pampered, get ready for a romantic meal at Ike’s Chophouse located on the resort. To end your night, you’ll find drinks and musical entertainment at Liberty’s restaurant, The Eagle & The Owl.

Day 3

In the winter months, sometimes all we want to do is get away and snuggle up with the one we love. Cozy, small-town Gettysburg has the perfect balance of recreational activities and relaxation for that much-needed long-weekend getaway.

It’s not time to leave yet! After breakfast, explore the cute boutiques and shops downtown. Are you looking for just the right souvenir for the kids? Or maybe a keepsake for yourself? You’ll find the perfect unique treasure to bring home. Then, head to one of Gettysburg’s newest gems, Board & Brush Creative Studio. Create your own wood decor project from scratch with step-by-step directions by an instructor. Pack your finished project in the car before hitting the road.
