This season, take the time to nestle up together in your own winter paradise. Some may be tempted to ‘travel south’ as soon as the cold weather hits, but did you know you really don’t need to go far to truly get away? Here in New Brunswick we’ve got so many unique spots and activities that are just what you need to reconnect, warm up, and relax together.
Enjoy a classic romantic getaway
Fancy a classic romantic experience? From an exquisite evening in historic Saint John to a Nordic spa experience in Moncton or a winter escape in Fredericton, romance awaits in our cities. But love is also in the air of our smaller towns.

There are so many hidden gems to be found in all corners of the province – like the Castle Inn in Perth-Andover, the Marshlands Inn in Sackville, Auberge MicKy in Edmundston, Chalets de la plage in Bas-Caraquet, Villégiature Deux-Rivières in Tracadie, L'Ancrage B&B in Saint-Louis-de-Kent, and so many more. Pick somewhere new and see where it takes you...
Reconnect in the Capital
If you’re looking for a capital experience, head to Fredericton. It’s just the place to reconnect with your special someone.
Stay at the Delta Fredericton, Crowne Plaza Fredericton-Lord Beaverbrook, Hilton Garden Inn, and more. Be sure to take advantage of the city’s Stay A Night, Dinner’s On Us! package where you’ll receive a bonus $50 to spend in Downtown Fredericton or Fredericton North.
Warm up with your loved one at one of Fredericton’s many local craft breweries that are just waiting to be explored on the Fredericton Taproom Trail. Or venture to one of Fredericton’s many markets that are open for the season, such as Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market. You’ll be sure to bond over the many tasty discoveries.
Unwind in Moncton
If you’re looking to try something new for your romantic escape, spend a few days in Moncton. You can stay at one of the city's great hotels such as the Hyatt Place, the Hilton Garden Inn, the Delta Beausejour or the Crowne Plaza.
There are a ton of activities you can do in the city, like a romantic skate at the Ian Fowler Oval, fancy coffee tasting experience at Epoch Chemistry, axe throwing at Timber Lodge, or a super relaxing wellness experience at USVA Nordik Spa. And what’s better than endless laughter at the HubCap Comedy Festival.
Moncton is also known for exceptional dining experiences so enjoy some delicious food at Les brumes du coude, St. James’ Gate, and more. In Moncton, your perfect romantic winter escape is waiting for you.
Rekindle your romance in Saint John
What’s more romantic than spending a few days in Canada’s oldest incorporated city. Saint John is rich with many great experiences this winter.
Spend a night or two at the Delta, Hilton Saint John, or the historic properties of Chipman Hill Suites. During your uptown stay, enjoy local eats, treats, and more at the Saint John City Market, or delight your senses with a special dining experience at Italian by Night, Port City Royal, and Cask & Kettle Irish Gastropub.
Enjoy a peaceful break in Saint Andrews
At the classic Algonquin Resort in Saint Andrews, you and your special someone can enjoy fine dining at Braxton’s Restaurant, relax at the spa, go for a dip in the pool, and take in the shops downtown. For a perfect experience, the Algonquin offers vacation packages perfect for a romantic getaway. Those packages have just what you need to create special moments with your loved one.
Get cozy while being close to nature
There is no better way to get away from it all than staying in nature. Enjoy the nature getaways throughout the province, such as domes, yurts, oTENTiks, or rustic cabins. During your stay, stargaze at night, curl up with your favourite person, and enjoy a quiet night by the fire.
There are options galore, like famed Broadleaf Ranch. During your stay at Broadleaf, you and your loved one can cuddle up on a sleigh ride to enjoy the stunning views of Albert Country Woodland and Shepody Marshland. Or, if you really want to dive into winter fun, try horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, skating, tobogganing, or even snowmobiling. Just make sure to bring your own equipment.
In Doaktown, The Ledges Inn has a romantic escape package that includes accommodations, wine and treats in your room upon arrival, a three-course gourmet dinner and breakfast for two. Another fantastic spot to check out in this area is Storeytown Cottages. One cottage, in particular, is just perfect for you – the Love Shack! It has a private hot tub and is prime for a quiet retreat. And to make your stay at Storeytown Cottages extra sweet, they’re offering romance packages complete with bottle of sparkling wine, fruit & chocolate, luxury spa towels and a 15-minute couple’s photoshoot.
To be truly immersed in nature, book a night at one of many glamping domes across the province. During your stay at Ridgeback Lodge, Cielo Glamping, or Creekside RnR, you will get the chance to enjoy all the wonders of winter – shiny stars, untouched snow, and peace and quiet.

A fresh air getaway is guaranteed to give you red cheeks and warm hearts at the end of the day.
