Clarksville, Missouri: One of the 10 most romantic places to take your Valentine

Honestly, this

hospitable Missouri place does look picturesque.

​Could a weekend in Clarksville, Missouri, be as romantic as a getaway to Hawaii?

Yes, according to iloveinns.com. The website devoted to bed and breakfasts compiles an annual unranked top-10 list of Most Romantic Inns. This year, Clarksville's Cedarcrest Manor made the cut, alongside boutique accommodations in Holualoa, Hawaii, and Victoria, British Columbia. The criteria: "scenic setting and location, interior beauty and design, heartfelt hospitality, pampering amenities and creative activities."



Obviously,

for a lot of folks "scenic setting and location" equates to isolation.

And the Clarksville area certainly offers that. The tiny river town

(population: less than 500) in Pike County is so deep in the middle of

nowhere that its official website describes it in terms of what

it's halfway between -- Canada and the Gulf of Mexico, Hannibal and St.

Louis.

Cedarcrest Manor is one of two plush houses on the 17,000-hectare Overlook Farm in Clarksville, offering home-cooked meals, a heated pool and walking trails (aka "incomparable country living").

When I checked, the booking tool on the farm's website actually

showed some availability this Valentine's weekend, with rates starting

at the low Midwestern price of $125 a night. And you don't have to figure in an eight-hour plane ride.
