Romantic Weekend Getaway in Kansas

Romantic Weekend Getaway in Kansas

Reconnect on a romantic weekend getaway complete with a  candlelit dinner, couples massage, Sunday brunch, and more, all in the charming town of Fort Scott, Kansas.

Your romantic weekend getaway in Kansas all starts with the right accommodation.

Our two most romantic picks are Lyons Twin Mansions and The Courtland Hotel & Spa. Both of these historic hotels allow you to take a step back in time, while still enjoying all the modern luxuries you desire. But if your dream weekend doesn’t include a historic inn, we have plenty of other wonderful options for your  overnight stay!

After you check-in, it’s time to hit the bricks and unwind!

Savour a meal at any one of the unique locally owned restaurants in downtown Fort Scott. Whether you’re craving a farm to table steak, or an award winning hamburger, we have the perfect spot to meet your every whim.

After your meal you can’t miss Fort Scott’s very own Boiler Room Brewhouse.  This former classic 1950’s motor lodge features fresh craft beer made on site. You’ll come for the beer, but you’ll stay for the ambiance at this local gem.

Once you’ve had the best night’s sleep of your life, it’s time to start your romantic weekend getaway in Kansas off right with a day spent in downtown Fort Scott!

You’re morning simply will not be complete without a stop into Common Ground Coffee Co. This charming coffee shop has all the coffee, tea, and specialty drinks you love, but it’s non-profit status means you can feel good about your Caramel Latte habit.

After you’ve gotten your coffee fix, step outside to relish in the beauty of Fort Scott’s historic district. Walk the century old brick streets hand in hand, while you admire the landscaping, and extraordinary architecture.

While in downtown you should spend some time perusing the shops, boutiques, and antique stores. But you don’t want to miss a visit to the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes, where you’ll walk in the steps of some incredible people who have created a positive change on the world.

Eventually you’ll arrive at the end of Fort Scott’s historic downtown where you’ll find the Fort Scott National Historic Site where you can explore the site’s structures, and meander through the reclaimed Tallgrass Prairie.

After a day spent wandering downtown, it’s time to relax! How about a couples massage to melt any stress away? After all is there anything more romantic than a couples massage? The Courtland Spa is the perfect place to relax together.

At the end of a quite day spent together enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner for two at at Crooner’s Lounge. This beautifully restored restaurant is the perfect place to reconnect with your loved one. The food has the power to bring you together.. the steak is tender, the fish is fresh, and the dessert is life changing.

After a Saturday day filled with activity and fun we wouldn’t blame you for sleeping in. But you can’t sleep the day away, because Sunday brunch is calling your name!

Sunday Brunch at Nate’s Place is a can’t miss experience. We recommend a customized omelet, or the stuffed French toast. But don’t miss the best Bloody Mary in the four states and the pineapple/orange mimosas.

After brunch, reconnect with nature during a romantic stroll through Gunn Park. This 155 acre park offers the perfect backdrop for a quite afternoon spent with your loved one.

Sadly you will have to go home after the perfect romantic weekend getaway in Kansas. But you can always come back and see us anytime!

On your next trip we recommend a weekend spent exploring Fort Scott’s rich history!
