Valentine’s at Litchfield: How to Play Your Escape

It’s time for that annual test of affections. Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it, and getting something on the books now is a great idea. It’s a snap when you start with plans to go to Litchfield.

Romance can bloom anywhere, but when you’re in a place you both love, imagine the possibilities.

No need to hire a skywriter to plaster your intentions for all to see. Don’t round up a mariachi band or buy a thousand rose petals and 10,000 candles. Get a nice weekend together in Litchfield and that’ll say it all.
