Date Night in Hanover County and Chickahominy Falls

Intimate restaurants and cocktail bars. Vibrant arts and culture. Hidden gems around every corner. There’s no better place to enjoy your freedom and carefree lifestyle than beautiful Hanover County! It’s no wonder that our homeowners love to get out and explore all of the fun in town, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there are so many downtown hotspots close to your new Cornerstone home to celebrate!

Whether you love to enjoy wine with a gourmet meal or indulge in a fun new hobby, you’re bound to find something special just minutes from your brand new home in Chickahominy Falls.  In fact, just take a stroll from your new home to The Barn for a fun date night event right in your neighborhood!!

Couple in cooking class.

Date Night at The Barn in Chickahominy Falls

Date Night Cooking Class at Woodside Farms: On February 15, Chef Jenny Tremblay West will guide you through cooking a delicious three-course meal in the barn at Woodside Farms! Learn how to cook salmon cakes with a lemon dill sauce, winter green gratin (with greens from Woodside Farms!), and a salted caramel apple galette, and share it all with your special someone. Bring your favorite bottle of wine to enjoy!

Or just a short ride to Ashland:   

Date Night Around Hanover County

Caboose Restaurant: Half market, half farm-to-table cafe, this Hanover hotspot is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious Valentine’s lunch or dinner. Split a charcuterie or cheese plate with your sweetheart, enjoy diverse wines or craft beer, and relax in a cozy, casual atmosphere that proves the simple things are the most special.

Iron Horse RestaurantOn the corner of Railroad Avenue (Ashland’s main street and the busiest rail line in the East), this charming eatery is where you always feel right at home. Enjoy café and brasserie-style dishes outside on the “best sidewalk cafe in Ashland” and raise a cocktail, local beer, or wine glass to your love.

Henry Clay InnWhat could be more romantic than a peaceful and private Ashland staycation? Replace date night with date day-and-night, and enjoy an abundance of free time in this gorgeous, Georgian-style hotel. Sit by the fire, relax on the porch, and indulge in delicious meals with your sweetheart by your side.  They offer a fantastic weekend Brunch!

Ashland Theater.

Ashland TheaterChocolate mixed into a bucket of popcorn, one large soda with two straws — however you and your partner like to watch a movie, you can relive your butterfly-filled memories of first dates! This Ashland treasure offers new release films and live music, and best of all, there’s no curfew this time…

Be sure to also check out the theater (because who doesn’t love dinner and a show?) and even more reasons to visit this place from our restaurant review here!

Ashland Coffee and TeaWho says Valentine’s Day has to be celebrated in the evening? At Ashland Coffee and Tea, romance is alive and well in the morning! This cozy cafe is such a fun spot to enjoy breakfast and coffee with your loved one, as well as live music, and of course, the sweetest vibes in all of Ashland.

Hanover Tavern.

Hanover Tavern: A scenic staple of Central Virginia for nearly three centuries, this historic treasure is the perfect place to spend date night in the wintertime. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite American-fare classics as you wine and dine in an intimate, cozy atmosphere that’s been delighting patrons for generations. 

We have a review on this too, see here!

From all of us at Cornerstone Homes, we hope you have a lovely date night!
