Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, giving you the perfect opportunity to make a weekend out of it! From a romantic dinner at home to a hike with your loved ones, there’s plenty to do in and around Banner Elk to enjoy this special weekend.
Dreamy Outdoor Fun
What could be more romantic than a stroll through a winter wonderland? With whitecap mountains and beautiful landscapes as the backdrop, bundling up and enjoying the breathtaking views throughout Eagles Nest is a great way to bond with someone special. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to get outside for some fresh air and much-needed unplugging time!
Want a more adventurous experience with your Valentine? Hop on a UTV or ATV and cruise through the crisp mountain air with your loved one holding on! Rent one of our UTVs at Off Road Adventures.
Valentine’s Day Dinners
Explore the Village Shops in the heart of Banner Elk to find a quaint restaurant for a romantic dinner. Upscale yet casual, Stonewalls is known for its steak, seafood, and extensive wine and cocktail list, plus it offers a Sunday brunch—perfect for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. And if you’re in the mood for Italian, the popular Chef’s Table at Sorrento’s by Chef Nicole Palazzo is another local favorite that is sure to make quite the impression.
Snuggling Up Indoors
The perfect winter weather is lining up for the weekend: cold with a chance of snow! This sets the stage for some fun and creative indoor celebrations, whether you’re planning a romantic date with your Valentine or a fun night with friends and family.
Dinner by the fireplace could make it an extra special evening. Pick up a bottle of wine (or two) from our very own Eagle’s Nest Winery and pair it with a delicious meal from LP on Main. At LP on Main, Chef Bagbey offers made-to-order cuisine featuring local seafood, meats, and produce that you can order ahead and pick up for your romantic dinner at home.
Or for some old-fashioned fun, pull out a deck of cards, some board games, or your favorite rom-com movie for a relaxing night in. Don’t forget the hot chocolate and candy! A getaway to Eagles Nest is an experience you and your Valentine won’t forget. It’s the perfect way to make the most out of the winter weather and enjoy a cozy weekend with your sweetheart. Wishing you a Valentine’s Day weekend filled with good wine, good food, and sweet memories at Eagles Nest!
