Valentine's Day is upon us: That oh so magical time of year synonymous with red roses, chocolates in a box, and teddy bears holding hearts. Forgot to make a plan? You are not alone and thankfully the romance experts at Farmhouse Inn are here to help. We have declared February as the Month of Romance (why limit to a single day?) and the Sonoma wine country is perfect for a romantic getaway. Whether surprising your loved one with a last minute romantic interlude or adding on some delightful extras to an already-planned trip, we are here to make sure that your Valentine’s Day amounts to more than bad candy or even worse; bad champagne. We have a 3 step plan that will make you look like a hero this Valentine’s Day Weekend.
Step One: Book a room and dinner! These reservations are highly prized and extremely hard to get at the last minute, particularly at stops that already have a reputation for romance (we swear we’re not tooting our own horn….). Our restaurant fills up fast but lucky for you we hold back some tables for hotel guests – I know, we think of everything. Can’t make it the actual holiday weekend but still looking to do a getaway? No problem. Now through the end of March we’re offering our Winter Getaway / 3rd Night Free special. This gives you plenty of time to plan – because you didn’t forget…. you just wanted to be sure it was perfect…. and special…. We promise to back you up at check in.
Step Two: Do the unexpected! Surprise and delight your loved one with add-ons they know nothing about. Be it a Sommelier-led wine tour, a romantic tub turndown or a couple’s massage, these added touches go a long way. What is a Sommelier-led wine tour you ask? Imagine having a private driver pick you up at Farmhouse Inn where you’re met in the car by one of wine country’s hottest sommeliers to guide you through a day of private tastings at the most exclusive wineries. And you’ll enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch along the way, of course.
If you’re not one for visiting tasting rooms and still want to spark the romance, no problem – consider our candlelight tub turndown. While you’re at dinner we’ll set the mood – rose petals, artisan chocolate truffles, candlelight, bubbles in the tub and a bottle of champagne on ice. And to cap off a romantic weekend don’t forget a visit to the spa. Our cozy couple’s room is the perfect place to unwind and relax before returning to the real world.
Step Three: Go big or go home! Perhaps this all sounds fine and dandy but you're looking for something bigger, grander- the most romantic surprise ever. Well lucky for you, Farmhouse Inn hosts beautiful, intimate elopements for the couple seeking a moment they can call uniquely their own. We do everything from finding an officiant and photographer to ordering the cake and the flowers. All you have to do is show up (bring rings), enjoy a couple's massage and dinner for two at the Farmhouse restaurant, and when the time comes, say 'I do!'. (Or...not quite ready yet? How about a romantic proposal?)
If you’re more of an “I don’t want to think about it” type of person than we have one final suggestion. The whole month of February we’re offering half off of our romance package. The romance package includes champagne, artisan truffles, romantic floral arrangement, spa and a little souvenir of your stay. Book your three nights on the Winter Getaway special and add this on and you’re all set. You’ll go from being in the dog house to rock star status in one weekend. Amazing what a little 3 day weekend away can do for you.
