Step 1 – Pick somewhere sizzlin' like Texas. alt

Just like your love, you want somewhere that’s passion igniting, and that’s why Texas is a great shout. Head down to this southern safari tent, and let your love fill the five private acres of Texan wilderness that envelop you both.

Cupid recommends taking a long, relaxing soak in the clawfoot bathtub before snuggling up on the sofa that overlooks your own remote and romantic woodland scene.

Step 2 – Throw in some stargazing in California. alt

Wishing upon a star is one of the most romantic—not to mention free—things you can both do as a couple, and this cozy cabin in the San Bernardino National Forest is one of Cupid’s top picks.

Decorated in passionate red tones and scattered with roses, it’s the must-have love nest for cutesy couples who like the idea of cuddling in a plush bed in front of a crackling wood-burning stove, mmm...

Step 3 – Three words. Hot. Tub. Magic. alt

Spending quality time together is what it’s all about on Valentine’s Day, and it’s no secret that a hot tub can take a semisweet V-Day into an extra-special sugar rush.

Cupid told us that this adorable mountain cabin in Colorado gives you both a Valentine’s snuggle spot with your very own private hot tub, but shhh! It’s our little secret.

Step 4 – Make the perfect excuse to snuggle up in Montana. alt

Hugs, cuddles, embraces...who doesn’t love a good snuggle? But what if you could have a Valentine’s Day with non-stop cuddles? In this romantic cabin in Montana, your cuddle dreams can all come true as you bask in your own fairy tale in the remote mountain wilderness.

With a hot tub, wood-burning fireplace, and outdoor picnic table, Cupid’s got your back, girls.

Step 5 – Rustle up an aphrodisiac in Wyoming. alt

Escape to the Wisconsin wilderness with a stay in one of these elegant couple’s cabins. Here you can both recreate your favorite movie scenem, and steal a sunset kiss on the private deck area.

Cupid also mentioned that it’s a great place to cook up a love-infused banquet before enjoying an enamored embrace in a plush bed with soft, luxury linens. Happy Valentine’s Day, darling!
