West Baden Romance


I know I am prejudice but I think West Baden Springs Hotel is one of the most romantic places in the world. The secluded location, beautiful gardens and amazing architecture beg to be the backdrop of a tear-eyed chick-flick. Can’t you just see the heroine being swept off her feet during a lavish ball in the atrium and whisked away by the handsome leading man to live happily ever after? Okay, so maybe that’s a little dramatic, but West Baden is the perfect getaway for couples.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner …you would totally get “Husband of the Year” if you dropped this “little package” on her as a token of your undying love. The West Baden Grand Experience Package is a week-long retreat in one of the hotel’s deluxe guestrooms, just about every spa service available, all meals and more for a cool $3,500.

Alright, so that’s a bit steep? West Baden does have some more affordable options. The Date Night Package starts at just $309 and includes an overnight stay, dinner and an in-room movie. For just a few bucks more, you can book the Art of Relaxation Package (starting at $319) and get bonus points for the massage and pedicure in the Spa at West Baden.

I’ll include the entire list of packages, in case something strikes your fancy. (You might even find a golf package that’s calling your name)
