HELENA, Mont., Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With stunning mountains, fresh powder, charming communities, star-filled skies and cozy fireside lodging, it's no surprise that Montana is one of the best destinations for a romantic getaway. Whether you're looking to connect with your partner through adrenaline-pumping adventures or if you want to spend a relaxing weekend away in one of the state's mountain towns, there are plenty of options for romance throughout Big Sky Country.
Whitefish, a charming community that sits at the base of Big Mountain and is home to Whitefish Mountain Resort, has five bed-and-breakfasts that are all ideal for a dreamy getaway, including Hidden Moose Lodge, Good Medicine Lodge and Garden Wall Inn.
Built in the style of a log cabin, Hidden Moose Lodge is perfect for winter getaways, with generous rooms and suites, as well as amenities that include an outdoor hot tub, made-from-scratch breakfasts and a river rock fireplace that provides a perfect setting for cuddling up after a day of playing outside.

With a keen attention to detail, the inn uses local products from area farms in their gourmet breakfasts, with additional services that include a civilized morning wake-up, complete with coffee and tea room delivery, evening turndown and a complimentary concierge.
Round out your weekend in Whitefish with night skiing on the cross-country ski trails at Glacier Nordic Center, snowshoeing in nearby Glacier National Park, a horse-drawn sleigh ride at Bar W Guest Ranch or experiencing the nightlife found at restaurants, wine bars and watering holes along Whitefish's Central Avenue.
