With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Travelsquire.com’s Felicia Foster knows just the place for a romantic getaway. Felicia paid Charleston a visit recently and quite evidently fell in love. (With the Wentworth Mansion, at least.)
She writes, “Seduction is inevitable at this gilded age estate in the South, where pampering is a birthright and romance comes with the territory. After a few nights in Charleston’s historic postbellum era Wentworth Mansion (circa 1886), you may feel like you were born in the wrong century.”
Foster was captivated by the mansion’s history, its stellar restoration and romantic, picturesque views of Charleston from the cupola. Venturing out to the grounds of the hotel, Foster explored the amenities of our luxurious inn that romantics typically fall head over heels for.
She says, “Little did the Rodgers family know what would become of this gentleman’s estate. Even the stables have a second life.”
Foster is referencing our spa and restaurant Circa 1886, which have settled into their own respective nooks inside the mansion’s restored stable house. The restaurant, a Men’s Fitness Magazine’s pick for one of America’s best restaurants for a date night. (Though, we’d say that our spa could easily take a close second for the best date destination…)
The Wentworth Mansion sets the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway in Charleston. In the spirit of this lovely, cozy season, we’ve created a handful of unique and romantic packages. Available in February only, our Sweetheart Package features an an overnight stay at the Mansion paired with a three-course romantic dinner at Circa 1886. When your evening at the restaurant draws to a close, you’ll return to your room for a candlelight turndown and a dozen red roses.
