A Convenient, Luxurious Bed & Breakfast in the Heart of Downtown Williamsburg
Go ahead, admit it: you secretly love Valentine’s Day.
Sure, once you reach a certain age or you’re in a committed relationship, it’s not “cool” to love this day dedicated to romance (“I have to buy her flowers again!?”). But in our heart of hearts, most of us do enjoy a day that’s focused solely on the expression of love.
Oddly, however, Valentine’s Day didn’t begin as a love fest. According to Wikipedia.org, Valentine’s Day got its start as a “liturgical celebration” of at least one (if not more) early Christian saints named Valentinus, who was/were imprisoned and/or executed for performing marriage ceremonies for soldiers (who were forbidden to marry in Rome) and for ministering to Christians.
The most famous Valentinus saint is Saint Valentine, who is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer prior to being executed.
So from his sacrifice comes the day we “sacrifice” for love (the aforementioned flowers, plus chocolates, plus dinner out, plus perhaps an engagement ring or even wedding vows).
And, of course, possibly even a stay at a romantic Williamsburg bed and breakfast.
Which brings us full circle to the Fife and Drum Inn.
Valentine’s Day this year (2014) falls on a Friday. Which means it’s perfect to take a long weekend to celebrate the love you have for your significant other.
In fact, we have some terrific weekend getaway packages that are sure to satisfy you and your love’s need for romance, history, wine, and, of course, exploration of Colonial Williamsburg.
Our package options include one rose or a dozen. Or perhaps fresh flowers are more to your liking? We can provide you with ½ a split of champagne on ice (or another beverage of your choice). You also can snack from a tray filled with chocolates, cheese and crackers and fresh fruit.
It’s all up to you. We can even provide you with dinner coupons for several of the excellent Williamsburg restaurants and taverns that are just a short distance from our Inn.
Don’t let another Valentine’s Day go by without truly showing your partner how much you love him or her. Book your romantic Valentine’s Day package with us today!
