What could be more romantic for a Valentines getaway than cuddling at a country inn? Three new bed-and-breakfast properties in the beautiful Litchfield Hills of Northwest Connecticut beckon with Valentines packages good the entire month of February, with a mood for every lover's taste, country cozy to elegant.

A private screening room showing love story films is one of the special lures during February at Rock Hall in Colebrook, where guests will find a sample of the good life in a 10,000 square foot 1912 manor house designed by noted architect Addison Mizner for a shipping magnate. Four large and beautifully appointed rooms feature imported linens and flat screen TV and mornings bring sumptuous breakfasts. Rock Hall is celebrating romance for the entire month of February with their Nutmeg Love package, treating guests to a split of champagne, fresh roses and artisal chocolates. Rates are from $245 to $320 with a two-night minimum. www.19rockhallroad.com

An 18th century New England farmhouse is the scene at the Inn At Mount Pleasant Farm near Torrington, on 70 undisturbed acres that are all the more beautiful covered with snow. The kitchen wing of the restored farm has a warming fireplace, some of the original beams and a floor with 11-inch wide pine tongue and groove boards. The inn's Sweetheart Deal, $250, offers a stay in the Mount Pleasant room, with over 400 square feet of living space including a sitting room, sky lights, complimentary wine and flowers and a $40 gift certificate to the new Cambridge House restaurant. Other rooms are $200 per night. The grounds provide 50 acres of open meadows for cross-country skiing. www.theinnatmountpleasant.com

The luxurious Rooster Tail Inn in Warren is a circa 1850 Colonial renovated and expanded to include six suites, a wine bar, a fully equipped fitness center, sauna and steam room equipped with aromatherapy. Five suites have tubs offering chromotherapy. A gourmet breakfast is served each morning in the dining room overlooking a stone barn and scenic pond, and high tea is an afternoon highlight in the wine bar. Phone for Valentines specials.
