Still feeling romantic? Here are some of our recommendations for a post-Valentine's Day romantic weekend in Squamish.

STAY

Executive Suites Hotel & Resort

How about a night away in a mountain view one bedroom suite with a bottle of wine and chocolates to enjoy in front of a cosy fire? The Executive Suites Hotel & Resort is offering a Romance in the Mountains package that includes a bottle of wine, chocolates, and 1 pm late check out. 

Olympic Cabins at Porteau Cove

When the ocean calls, we can’t think of a better place to find it than at the Olympic Cabins at Porteau Cove. Built for the 2010 Winter Olympics, each oceanfront log cabin provides prime sunset viewing and picturesque Howe Sound views. Stay in with a good book and bottle of wine, or head out for activities and attractions all within a 20-minute drive.

Sunwolf Riverside Resort

Nothing beats a quiet weekend of forested trails, nature walks, mountain views and hot tubbing. That’s the kind of retreat to be found at Sunwolf, a year-round resort offering a ‘Logger’s Shack’ the new Fisherman’s Cottage and ten cosy riverside cabins complete with vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces and the soothing sounds of the Cheakamus River. Be sure to stop for brunch at Fergie's Cafe during your visit, we promise the eggs benny (and anything else on the menu) will blow you away. It’s rustic romance at its finest. 

RELAX

Squamish Integrated Health

Slip into Squamish Integrated Health and watch your stress melt away as you treat your sweetheart (and yourself) to one of several treatments including Shiatsu, Acupuncture, Registered Massage Therapy and more. 

DINE

Backcountry Brewing

The tasting room at Backcountry Brewing offers wood-fired pizza, salads, chilis and stews all created in-house. The best part? You get to drink straight-from-the-farm brews while you eat. Giving new meaning to the term micro-brew, the locally grown hops shine through in every sip of Backcountry's delicious beer.

Crabapple Cafe

Gluten-free, organic and vegan meals are easy to come by at The Crabapple Cafe whose menu includes everything from squid ink risotto to salmon wellington to quinoa with roasted vegetables.

Howe Sound Brew Pub

Dine at one of Squamish's best craft breweries and pair quality North West cuisine, such as Drunk Salt Spring Island Mussels, with award-winning Howe Sound ales. The brewery also provides tours at 1 pm daily.

Match Eatery and Public House

This British-style gastropub offers traditional fare, live entertainment, casino action and a patio complete with outdoor fireplaces and sweeping views of the Chief. Whether you dine outside, inside or at the bar, you're in for a treat. 

Norman Rudy's

Big Squamish views of mountains, ponds and forests surround the massive patio and with outdoor fireplaces, you can cosy up and enjoy supper under the stars. Combining comfort kitchen with farm fresh, this will be a dinner for the books.

The Salted Vine

Recently voted one of the top 30 new restaurants in Canada, The Salted Vine places a premium on fresh, sustainable and seasonal ingredients and the quality shines through in every dish. Stop by for dinner, or pop in from 3 - 5 pm for happy hour. 

Squamish Valley Golf Course

Soup and salad, sandwiches, burger and wraps and everything in between. Enjoy a dinner at the course's Clubhouse and take in stunning course views with a mountain backdrop. 

DRINK

A-Frame Brewing

Inspired by lakeside cabin vacations, you'll feel like you're walking into an old memory when you step into A-Frame Brewing. Complete with stump seating, picnic tables and plenty of thirst-quenching brews a visit to A-Frame is about so much more than the epic beer–it's the rustic cabin experience. #NowCheersToThat.

Gillespie's Fine Spirits

Check out the Speakeasy Cocktail Bar (after 5 pm) Wednesday through Monday nights for beautiful drinks made by an award-winning mixologist, the Boozewitch herself! The intimate atmosphere is guaranteed to set the mood for a good night.

DO

Heli & Flight Seeing

Looking for an extra special and unique way to say “I love you”? Take a romantic flightseeing tour, an adventure that will reveal hidden lakes, peaks and ranges and offer breathtaking views of the Sea to Sky region. Heli and flightseeing tours are the perfect way to create lasting memories for you and your loved one.

Garibaldi Provincial Park

The trailhead to this snow-covered paradise is just a quick drive up Mamquam Road from Highway 99 where you’ll find a whopping 195,000 hectares of glacier-capped mountains, lakes and untapped territory. Plus, the Red Heather Hut is a pretty romantic place to stop for a warm up. Winter tires and snow chains are a must for all vehicles travelling to this area. 

Sea to Sky Gondola

There is absolutely nothing more romantic than sharing breathtaking Squamish views with that special someone in the height of winter. Walk, hike, then rest and relax at the Summit Lodge.
