If you're stumped and don't know what to do for Valentine's Weekend next weekend--surprise your sweetheart with a road trip! Just a quick 4.5-hour drive away lies this amazing cabin getaway-nestled among trees with a hot tub, cozy fireplace, gas grill, and tons of privacy-but close enough to the Casino and places to eat. I'm talking about Winterfell Cabin in the upper Canyon neighborhood in Ruidoso, New Mexico. You could knock off work around noon next Friday, and by dinner time be in your cabin all cozy for the weekend. Here are just a few shots from what awaits you at the end of the road:

The Upper Canyon Neighborhood is close to shopping and restaurants but secluded enough to make you feel like you're all alone in a beautiful mountain setting.

Even around Valentine's Day in the month of February-the hot tub awaits as the forecast is calling for temperatures in the 50's Valentine's weekend!

Grab the towels and the beverages and hop into the hot water with awesome jets to keep you warm and relaxed.

Always good to grill out on weekends, no matter what time of year.

Plenty of space as this cabin sleeps 4... But cozier if it's just you and your sweetie.

All the comforts of home with a dining area if you choose to cook rather than go out.

Such an amazing place and beautiful views in the mountains of New Mexico.

It's all just a short drive (and I say short because everyone in Texas is used to everything being a minimal 5 hour drive away)... Better make your plans and get this booked now! What an amazing surprise!

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
