The most romantic day of the year calls for an equally romantic destination. How about a restored Victorian Manor resting on a full acre of the Tennessee mountains?
Moffitt Manor of Altamont, TN, is a storied and fully renovated Victorian home, the perfect private locale for your Valentine's Day 24-Hour getaway.
Lounge in one of the beautifully appointed parlors watching movies on a 60-inch television, or soak in a sumptuous claw foot bathtub until lunchtime. Rent the entire home for yourself and your honey, or bring some bestie couples along -- there's plenty of room for up to 12 guests to sleep in at the Manor comfortably!
For 24 hours, you'll have full access to:
Six tastefully appointed bedrooms
Two and ¾ refurbished bathrooms
Three elegantly furnished parlors
An impeccably restored kitchen
Just outside the Manor stands a charming rustic log cabin, which previous residents enjoyed as a honeymoon cottage as well as a courthouse. You're also welcome to use the log cabin, which features a living room, fireplace, bathroom, and bedroom within its 20'x 32' frame.
If you'd like to order refreshments to enjoy during your stay, ask the owner about two homemade meal options at the time of your reservation. Both options include homegrown organic chicken dishes with sides of organic vegetables from the owner's garden, a gallon of freshly made southern sweet tea, and a pie from the neighboring Mennonite community's bakery.
