As 2020 becomes a happy memory, it is time to start making plans for the new year that spreads out before us like a beautifully blank slate. Your resolutions for the year were to worry less and travel more, and since Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, why not start your travels with a romantic getaway to Kentucky Lake with the one who has stood by your side for so many years! Located along the border of scenic Kentucky and idyllic Tennessee, your chances for fun, excitement, and of course, romance are doubled when you stay in one of our JZ Vacation Rentals luxurious and dreamy escapes. This guide to the adventures you can have during your stay will make this Valentine’s Day one you will never forget!

The Weekend Is Yours

Doing your travel on Friday allows you and your bride or groom the opportunity to make a lazy start to your Valentine’s getaway, and breakfast in bed is the best way we know to begin your adventures on this day of love! For those that do not add cooking to their long list of accomplishments, a little pre-planning and a stop in Parcell’s Perk Coffee Shop and Bakery, 165 US HWY 68E Suite 3 in nearby Benton, will get you everything you need to please your Valentine. Offering her favorite donut (the Boston crème is ours!), his favorite cruller, and everyone’s favorite cupcakes, the sugary treats found here can simply be unboxed, placed on a tray, and carried into the bedroom for a sweet awakening! If you like to cook, however, our fully equipped kitchens offer everything you need (minus the food) to create the breakfast of your dreams.

Time for Just the Two of You

Your real life is stressful, filled with meetings, angry bosses, and lots of little moments that give you that little twinge right there in the back of your neck. On this weekend of love, however, we have the perfect solution to rid you of that pain: a couple’s massage offered by Elysian Fields, Massage & Spa! Located at 3420 Lone Oak Road, Ste A in Paducah and offering two couple’s packages, if your time spent here does not relieve your aches and pains, nothing will! Enjoy the four-hour Just for Us package that includes a 60-minute massage, facials, pedicures, and lunch or keep it simple with the 2.5-hour Two Became One package. This service includes a 60-minute massage, facials, and snacks (chocolate fondue, fresh strawberries, and cheese and crackers!) and allows you to get out and explore more of the Kentucky Lake area if time is tight!

Couples Who Play Together

Let’s face it, for a relationship to thrive, not just survive, the most important thing you can do is play together. A visit to Maggie’s Jungle Golf will bring out the competitive kid in both of you! Located at 7301 US-641 in Gilbertsville, Maggie’s offers a barrel full of fun and live animals as well as some that it’s best they are fake! Check out the small zoo of ponies, alpacas, and birds—including a beautiful peacock—as you enjoy the taste of a snow cone while playing 18 holes of miniature golf. The couple who plays together will last forever!

Picnic on the Porch

One of the best qualities of our Kentucky Lake rentals is their location right on the lake. Put together a picnic of your favorite foods and take it out to the porch to enjoy! Offering ringside seats of the best view in town, you can sip wine and snack for as long as you want, and this quiet time is the best time to share secrets, wishes, and plans for the future. If it’s a little chilly (which can happen in February), many of our properties offered a four seasons porch, covered and protected from the lake winds that offer the same views without the need for heavy coats.

The Quickest Way to Their Hearts

We all know that the quickest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach, and a romantic meal at the Willow Bistro, 124 N 15th Street in Murray, is the perfect way to end a beautiful day on Kentucky Lake! Offering an international selection of entrees that includes Greek, Thai, Mexican, and your favorite American dishes, there is literally no way we can choose just one dish for you to enjoy! They are famous for their gyros, so if you can’t narrow down your choices, you definitely cannot go wrong with that, but we can promise you every bite of every meal will make you want more. Ending this romantic getaway with two spoons and their Dessert Medley (you get to choose three of their desserts to try out) will ensure that you both leave the Willow Bistro floating on air!
