Relive The Most Romantic Scenes From ‘The Notebook’ At This Charleston Hotel
February 5, 2018
If your idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day is a nice dinner before watching The Notebook on the couch, it’s time to dream bigger. That’s right. Because why re-watch your favorite scenes from the romantic film adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel when you can relive them?
The HarbourView Inn in Charleston, SC, just launched what they’ve dubbed “Noah and Allie’s Timeless Romance Experience.” The package essentially recreates the dreamiest scenes from The Notebook for you and your special someone, including tours to landmarks spotted in the film. If you’re an extremely loyal fan or South Carolina native, you might recognize that the setting was not, in fact, Charleston, but rather a tiny oceanfront community known as Seabrook just outside of town. However, many of the scenes in the movie were actually shot in the city center.
For $2,000 per couple, you’ll receive access to a ton landmarks in the movie, including a $25 gift card to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, where Allie playfully licks ice cream off of Noah’s face, and a private carriage ride for two around the Historic District where the two walk down King Street to see a movie at The American Theatre (this is also where Noah stops and asks Allie to dance with him before laying down in the middle of the street).
Plus, the package includes two tickets and private transportation to Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, which is the location of Allie’s family summer home. It’s complete with a house tour and Audubon Swamp Garden tour—yes, from the famous scene where Noah rows Allie through a swan-filled lake. Swoon!
Also, remember when Noah leaps off the train when he sees Allie dining with her new fiancé Lon (aka the ever-handsome James Marsden)? The HarbourView Inn package includes a $100 gift card for dinner at that restaurant, High Cotton, which is known for its comfort food and southern hospitality.
In your charming hotel room, you can expect to find a dozen roses upon arrival (who can argue with that?), as well as a rose petal turndown and a bottle of sparkling wine. I’m not going to lie, this sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate the annual holiday of love. If your significant other really wants to spoil you and can withstand the ugly tears that are sure to flow when you two re-watch the movie for the umpteenth time in your hotel suite, visit the HarbourView Inn for more information.
