A Couples’ Oasis in Winter

Enjoy A Romantic Getaway in Medina County

February stands like a warm, love-filled beacon in the middle of an otherwise chilly, snow-covered landscape across Ohio. Shake off that cabin fever and plan a memorable (and affordable) couples’ getaway. One of the best places for couples to celebrate this lovely mid-winter gift is Medina County, where you can enjoy everything from an intimate dinner to trying your hand at axe throwing.

Start with a romantic dinner for two at one of the many local restaurants in Medina County. The Farmer’s Table in Medina offers everything from gourmet small plates and shareables to a 16-ounce Ohio strip steak. If you want something with a view, visit The Oaks in Chippewa Lake. This unique lakeside dining experience with a cozy fire will add to the romance. Or Get cozy at The Vue, a quaint local spot in historic downtown Wadsworth, with a selection of seasonal fare and craft cocktails to satisfy any craving.

You and your sweetie can also refine your Paul Bunyan chops at TimberBeast axe throwing in Medina. The indoor venue offers beer and wine and has leagues for throwing stars, knives, hatchets, and big axes. Or let your artistic abilities shine at Brush Tips art studio in Wadsworth. Choose one of their specialty craft nights or an adult paint-n-sip where you can bring snacks and adult beverages.

A visit to a winery or brewery can foster a warm glow. You’ll find distinctive wine and bourbons at Amy’s Arbors in Valley City and Unwined in Wadsworth. The High & Low Winery in Medina features tasting rooms, two cozy fireplaces, and a full-service bistro. Share a pint with your sweetie at Ignite Brewing Company in Brunswick. It’s a fun environment with a selection of delicious local craft brews.

And don’t forget Spa time – celebrate the day being pampered with your significant other; you owe it to yourself! Embrace Salon and Spa in Brunswick offers deep tissue and hot stone massages, facials, skincare treatments, and more. Nature’s Touch Massage and Wellness Center in Medina, OH, offers relaxation and therapeutic massages, deep tissue and hot stone massages, sports, and recovery massages.

Looking for a cozy spot to celebrate the holiday and recharge your batteries? Brookshore Cottage, a B&B at Chippewa Lake, features luxurious rooms and first-rate accommodations. Or choose one of the cozy rooms of Medina’s Spitzer House, a Victorian Bed and Breakfast in downtown Medina.

While in Medina County, check out the calendar of events – including the renowned 30th Annual Medina Ice Festival happening February 16 – 19, 2024, in the Historic Medina Square. Wonder at the expertly carved ice sculptures of your favorite winter characters and stick around for the live carving competition.
