Personal Touch

Inns and B&B’s are often praised for their attentiveness and detail-oriented manner. In our opinion, there’s no better time to take advantage of these traits than when you are planning a proposal. In fact, each of the Historic Inns would be delighted to help you pop the big question. You can count on them to assist you in picking out a room that fits the right ambiance and vibes of the night – just be sure to plan well in advance so whichever room you want is available. Additionally, they can provide chilled champagne and flutes, lay out rose petals and chocolate, set up music, or arrange a special horse and carriage ride or private boat excursion. All you have to do is ask. If you’re looking to add unique characteristics to your proposal day, they are sure to have a few great suggestions for you.

Unparalleled Intimacy

While restaurants, the beach, and even Disney World are popular choices for proposals, they don’t always offer the intimacy desired for such an occasion. However, a proposal at a Historic Inn has intimacy in twofold. Instead of the beach, set the ambiance of the occasion with a steamy hot jacuzzi bath and your favorite tunes playing in the background. Skip the restaurant and relax in front of a softly lit fireplace with chocolate covered strawberries as your treat. Choose to overlook St. George Street with two glasses of pale, bubbly champagne over the excitement of Disney World. After popping the question, enjoy one another’s company in the close corridors of your romantic room or venture out into Historic Downtown where you can take a quiet stroll along bayfront or ride around town during a horse and carriage ride.

It’s the Birth of a Tradition

Over the years, many individuals have asked for their partners’ hand in marriage at one of the inns. Often, this becomes the beginning of a tradition. Once a couple is married, it’s common for them to return to the inn each year on the date of their proposal, to celebrate their love. In fact, in some instances couples have even returned with their children to share the memories as a family. Many of them consider their return to the inn as one of their most cherished traditions.
