4 Unique Downtown Blue Ridge Escapes Perfect for Couples

Candlelight dining, fireside chats after a waterfall hike, a wine tasting on a chilly afternoon…there are a dozen ways to say I love you in Blue Ridge. Regardless of how you decide to ‘wine and dine’, the ultimate wrap on a romantic escape is where you kiss goodnight. Here are four ideas for your overnight, guaranteed to put the amore in your getaway.

Main & Main Downtown

Main & Main (Southern Comfort Rentals)
How do you tell your significant other that they’re more precious than gold? Opt for the penthouse in the old Fannin County Bank building!

This fourth-floor charmer offers the most impressive views of Downtown Blue Ridge, and it includes an outdoor rooftop patio that is perfect for enjoying that extra bottle from your wine tasting.

Inside you’ll find a fireplace, full kitchen, a bedroom with access to the private patio, plus a huge, welcoming shower.

Downtown Bungalow inside

Bungalow 46 in Downtown Blue Ridge (Mountain Top Cabin Rentals)
Mountain Top is known for their sensational cabin escapes in the mountains and their adorable suites in the Downtown area…but did you know they have a property that marries the best of that? A gorgeous cottage, right in the heart of Downtown.

This renovated 1946 gem sleeps up to four people, but it’s cozy enough for a couples’ escape, with vintage charm and modern amenities.

Hardwood floors, an electric fireplace, tons of natural light, a gas grill on the back patio, and a theatre loft upstairs make it an ideal place to spend a weekend away. There is even a driveway, which is hard to come by in Downtown Blue Ridge. Park your car and walk to dinner, drinks, shopping and more.

Blue Ridge Bed & Breakfast

Blue Ridge Inn Bed & Breakfast
If you prefer a little pampering on your romantic interlude, then opt for this 130-year-old home in the Downtown area. Built in 1890 and known previously as the Kinkaid House, it’s one of the oldest residences in Blue Ridge, and your stay comes with a sensational breakfast feast.

12-ft ceilings make the Inn feel grand, but the hand-carved woodwork and rustic pine floors mean a warm and inviting embrace greets you every time. 

There are eight rooms to choose from, but the main floor’s Rose Room is the most popular. The King bed, electric fireplace, private bath/shower, and lovely antiques will woo you, but remember you’re only steps from everything Downtown offers.

Hampton Inn Downtown Blue Ridge

Hampton Inn
Don’t let the name of this national brand fool you into thinking it offers a cookie-cutter experience. Like Blue Ridge herself, this option is filled with surprising details at every turn.

Local artists were commissioned for the interior décor and original artwork. And when you enter, don’t forget to look UP! The stunning ceiling lights were crafted by a local glass blower, and they can’t be missed.

The rooms are spacious, and many include balconies overlooking Downtown, but don’t spend your time there. Hook & Eye is the rooftop restaurant and bar with all the action. In fact, it’s become one of the local’s favorite hangout spots since it opened.

Deep woods and leathers, exposed beams, and stunning Downtown views are just the beginning. Follow that with live music, creative cocktails, and delicious eats for the perfect date night evening.
