Valentine’s Dinner Dance
Spend the day with your Valentine in floral paradise as you enjoy the world-famous Callaway Gardens and its many acres of rolling woodland terrain. At sunset, enjoy a fabulous dinner by the Callaway Gardens culinary team in the beautiful setting of the Virginia Hand Callaway Discovery Center. Then, dance the evening away to the music of The Auburn Knights Orchestra, one of the world’s legendary jazz and swing band orchestras. Transportation to and from the Callaway Discovery Center will allow couples to focus on each other rather than driving.
As late evening approaches, couples can cozy up together in front of a blazing fire spending an intimate night in a private and tranquil Southern Pine Cottage or Mountain Creek Villa. Sunday morning enjoy a breakfast for two, a late check out and the opportunity to wander back into the Gardens for some more together-time before returning to reality.
The Valentine’s Dinner Dance package is available in a one-bedroom Southern Pine Cottages for $366* per couple and a one-bedroom Mountain Creek Villa for $396* per couple. The package includes chocolates upon arrival, reception, dinner (see menu below), Auburn Knights Orchestra, bundle of firewood (for Cottage and Villa guests), breakfast following each night of stay and admission to beautiful Callaway Gardens and its many attractions. Guests can make a weekend getaway out of Valentine’s weekend with special discounted pricing for the nights of February 10 and 12 making it easy to stay an extra night. For dinner/dance only guests, the price is $99 per person inclusive of tax and gratuity.
