    Valentine Getaway at Milliken Creek
    Milliken Creek Inn & Spa
    A Napa getaway boasts sparkling wine, a chocolate spa treatment, and breakfast for two.

    FEBRUARY IS THE SHORTEST OF MONTHS, even when it has an extra day, like it did in 2016. But there are some nice perks to this swift time period, especially when it comes to packages and deals built around the heart-filled holiday that falls around the middle of the month. Quite often — not always, of course, but frequently — a hotel or restaurant or attraction will take a special happening related to Valentine's Day and stretch it all the way to the end of the month. So, in essence, when this happens, the shortest of months can become one of the most deal-laden, or at least a month full of merry good things that aren't restricted to a single occasion.

    "BE MY VALENTINE" PACKAGE... right through to Tuesday, Feb. 28. Naturally, as you'd hope and expect, there's a bottle of wine (sparkling, natch) involved with this Napa-nice package, and "romantic evening turndown service with chocolate-covered strawberries and scattered rose petals," too. True story: Evening turndown is a treat any time of the year, but this sort of sumptuous approach really finds its fancy footing in February. A Chocolate Decadence body treatment, breakfast for both of you, the inn's Magic Hour reception, and a chance to compose a message in a bottle are all on tap, too. (You'll just need to let the hotel know the message ahead of your arrival, so they can prepare both note and bottle for your sweetheart.) It's a two-nighter, this package, so plan on some unwinding, if jumping into the start of the year has you fully wound. For prices, rooms, and all of the dote-ready details, ring the swanky Napa stay and let them know you and your Valentine are keen on the "Be My Valentine" getaway. And start composing that special note. For how often is one presented a note in a bottle? (Answer: not nearly enough.)
