“We look forward to the ‘Month of Romance’ every year,” said Michael Snapkoski, director of sales and marketing at Lansdowne Resort. “What makes this year unique is Valentine’s falling on a Friday followed by a holiday on Monday, so we created programming, especially on that weekend to encourage an extended stay. But, we have great romance packages, spa retreats and wine tours throughout the entire month of February.”
Lansdowne Resort is offering a total of six romance-themed packages, but one specifically designed for the Valentine’s Day Weekend.
