Iowa is mostly known for its vast corn fields and wide open skies, but don’t assume there isn’t romance in every corner of this Midwestern state.
Whether you’re an Iowa native or just traveling through, there are many romantic getaways in this state just waiting to pamper you.
Lets explore the best romantic (weekend) getaways in Iowa:
1. Mont Rest Inn
Awarded with TripAdvisor’s 2016 Certificate of Excellence, this historic destination in Iowa is ideal for lovebirds looking to travel back to a lost era of grace and beauty. Mont Rest Inn, originally built in 1893, is nestled halfway up a wooded bluff overlooking one of the most panoramic views of the Mississippi River, and rekindles all the fond nostalgia of a time gone by.
Not only is the water view idyllic for a romantic getaway, but the amenities inside the Inn make the Mont Rest an obvious setting for romance. Luxuriate in your own private fireplace and Jacuzzi inside your room as you delight in the homemade chocolates left for you. Don’t even leave your room to be pampered with a therapeutic couples massage, performed in-room if requested. And then in the morning, recharge with a fully stacked family-style breakfast included just downstairs.
