Grab your sweetie, grab your girls but treat yourselves to the perfect getaway in February.

February has long been known as the month of romance, the month of love. February 14th was my mother’s birthday, so Valentine’s Day was never really a thing for me, it was mom's birthday. So we always celebrated our love on any random day of the year or just because it was Tuesday, it didn’t really matter as long as we were together. But as we got older, moved away and now that mom has passed, celebrating Valentine’s Day is a treat.

A more recent February holiday is Galentine’s Day. Popularized by Amy Poehler in the sitcom Parks and Recreation, its all about ladies celebrating ladies according to Poehler.

Traditionally celebrated on February 13th, we think Galentine’s Day should be celebrated all February long or hell all year long.

We have our partners, our kids, our parents and siblings but it’s with our best gal pals where we let down our hair, relax and just laugh.

So takes some time to strengthen your relationship or your friendships and enrich your soul!

Spend the afternoon at the vineyard and the evening with live music at the brewery, or go for massages and mani pedis, or just relax out in the courtyard by the fire with some wine and those you love.

So treat your love to some time away or give your inner queen some attention and make a weekend of it. So grab your girls book a room or book all 3 and have the place all to yourselves!

Either way, I’m sure Leslie Knope would approve, and either way, we have a February special just for you. Book any room and get a free Romance Package (value $50), or book 2 or more rooms and save 20% and
