Welcome to the very first edition of our Wednesday series of Date Night Ideas. Our 52 Date Night Ideas post has been overwhelmingly popular. That leads me to believe that you all are looking for unique and fun date night plans. Join us every Wednesday where we’ll offer ideas from overnight escapes to weekend events, to “dinner and a movie” options.
I am happy to kick off the series with my very favorite date night this year – an escape to Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, Ga. We participated in a number of activities on the resort, which I’ll describe below. You don’t have to do them all – just what looks fun and what your pocketbook can handle. In fact, many of these things can be done even without an overnight stay!
Tour the grounds – I highly recommend touring the gardens and the ruins. Take the time to research the history before you come. It is a thrilling love story with all the makings of a Hollywood movie!
Participate in a resort activity – We picked Sporting Clays because that’s our thing. I know it doesn’t suit everyone, but you can also select from horseback riding, golf, a seriously incredible spa, and much more.
Dinner and Wine Tasting at the Rice House – There are regularly scheduled wine tasting events at Barnsley Resort. We had a magical time with a Valentine’s inspired tasting. If you happen to miss one of their special events, dinner at the Rice House is an exceptional option, also.
Overnight in the cottage – There are no typical rooms here, only lovely cottages. Ours came complete with a rolling fire in the fireplace, a claw tooth tub, and spectacular back porch.
