What to Do During a LivCo Romantic Getaway 


Sample the Local Wine Scene

The Finger Lakes are known for their wine, so if you and your sweethearts’ date nights always end with uncorking a bottle, you won’t want to miss a visit to LivCo’s most romantic wineries and vineyards. Deer Run Winery and O-Neh-Da Vineyards are both beautiful, with tranquil, relaxing settings perfect for a little wine tasting at a leisurely pace.

Leaf Peep in the Fall

If you happen to plan your romantic getaway for the fall months, you’re in luck. While every season is gorgeous in LivCo, fall is truly breathtaking, as the mountains and shorelines burst into vibrant colors. Grab your sweetie and go for a scenic drive to take it all in at all these fall foliage destinations.

Head Out on the Water

Whatever your preferred way to paddle, whether you bring your own or rent a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard from a local outfitter, you’ll have near-endless options for bodies of water to explore with your honey, in LivCo. The Genesee River and Conesus Lake are both favorites and offer spectacular scenery.

Treat Yourselves

If a little retail therapy is exactly what you both need or if you both love the thrill of the hunt for an amazing antique find, you’ll be happy to discover that LivCo boasts a plethora of local shops and boutiques. Try The Valley Shop, Market on Main, Spindle & Knots, and the Gallery in the Valley for unique souvenirs, gifts and local finds you’ll only be able to buy in LivCo.

Follow the LivCo Inspirations Trail 

A romantic weekend getaway is the perfect time to take tons of cheesy selfies — and a beautiful outdoor mural makes your perfect backdrop. Coordinate your outfits, grab your camera, and head out on the Livingston County Inspirations Trail to discover the many murals scattered throughout the county.

Where to Stay During a LivCo Romantic Getaway

If you’ve decided to stay over for a multi-day trip to LivCo, you’ll need a place to rest your head and get comfy for the night, and for a romance-focused trip, not just any hotel will do. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a fortune to enjoy a luxurious and love-centric time away from home. Try one of these options for romance on any budget.



This 1915 Colonial home in Mount Morris’s historic district is as charming as it gets. The property has been restored and updated to provide you with all your necessary creature comforts, but still retains its historic appeal. Each room’s ensuite bathroom features a large, tiled rainfall shower, warmed towels, and heated floors (so we won’t blame you if you want to linger a bit while getting ready for the day!) and, after a restful night, each guest enjoys a full, three-course breakfast.

Blue Rose Bed & Breakfast

Also in Mount Morris’s historic district, the Blue Rose Bed & Breakfast offers both history in spades (the Queen Anne Victorian was built in 1894) and convenience. You’re only a few minutes from Letchworth State Park, making this B&B an ideal fit for a couple who wants to blend romance with adventure.

FLX Glamping 

To really disconnect from the world and reconnect with your favorite person, though, consider a glamping trip. FLX Glamping at O-Neh-Da & Eagle Crest Vineyards provides you with your own private glamping site that includes an outdoor heated shower, queen-sized bed, deck, and wood stove, so you’re hardly roughing it. If and when you decide to leave your glamping site, you’ll find a winery store on the grounds, as well as kayak, bicycle, and boat rentals.
