This year, February 14 lands on a Friday, which means it could be particularly difficult to secure a special booking in a busy city like Ottawa.

Additionally, the romantic weekend falls right in the middle of Ottawa’s Winterlude festival, which annually brings hundreds of thousands of tourists to the region. 

That means if you haven’t already mapped out your evening, now is the best time to start making some plans for the person you love. 

Thankfully, despite V-Day now being less than a month away, there are still plenty of opportunities to score a world-class reservation in a magical location.

Whether you’re looking for a stunning, modern stay in the busy heart of the city centre or a secluded break away from all of the hustle and bustle, there’s a number of quirky locations that are still available.

If you need a bit of inspiration, here are nine idyllic Airbnb properties near Ottawa that still have vacancies on Valentine’s weekend.
