Has Spring Fever hit you yet? Are you looking into the eyes of your significant other and thinking that a long awaited proposal is in order? Or maybe you're just ready for some alone time after a long winter. The ambiance of these bed and breakfast inns are the perfect place for an amorous getaway. As the French say, "Je vis d'amour et d'eau douce."

Southern hospitality meets modern conveniences at The President's Quarters Inn, a small but very luxurious B&B in the historic district of Savannah, Georgia. Four poster beds and fireplaces make it hard to leave the comfort of your room, but the Inn will temp you with it's nightly wine and hors d'oeuvres.

The Pine Crest Inn, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, was a favorite sanctuary for F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The main lodge is surrounded by ten charming cottages, English-style gardens and an award-winning wine cellar.

The Ivory Creek Bed and Breakfast Inn in Hadley, Mass., sits on 24 acres, surrounded by dense woods. The owners of this inn have created an oasis where the many outdoor decks and sunrooms allow its guests to truly appreciate the grandness of the natural setting.

The Victorian Ladies Inn in Newport, Rhode Island, radiates romance. The finely appointed rooms beckon you to spend extra time snuggling between the sheets before enjoying a sumptuous breakfast and then venturing out into the award-winning gardens.
