St. Helena, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Today’s plugged-in, multi-tasking, overscheduled world leaves little time for girlfriends to connect face-to-face, rather than text-to-text or Facebook-to-Facebook. Napa Valley's Harvest Inn offers the perfect girls getaway pampering solution with its new "Wine Country Slumber Party – Unplugged." The Napa Valley Slumber Party begins at check-in when friends surrender their gadgets and digital gear for safekeeping in one of the hotel’s individual safety deposit boxes. Then start long overdue conversations with a private, one hour reception featuring local wines and cheeses in the Inn’s stunning Great Room.
Friendships renew and blossom during a private five-hour Napa Valley wineries tour and exclusive tastings at three Harvest Inn preferred winery partners. These tastings include samples of special vintages available only at the winery, accompanied by light appetizers. The day includes a private picnic lunch at award-winning Markham Vineyards. One of the Valley’s oldest and most beautiful wineries, Markham’s lovely gardens and gallery are the perfect place to spend time with friends.
The next day surrender to relaxation with a 60-minute massage treatment of choice, massage therapy room or al fresco cabana tucked into the Inn’s private Redwood Grove or in the guestroom for an additional charge. Later shop the boutiques on St. Helena’s charming Main Street, relax by the Inn’s sparkling swimming pools and stroll the Inn’s eight acres of gardens, fountains and ponds, enjoying Wine Country flora and fauna.
The two-night gir ls getaway package includes wonderfully appointed, restful King Vineyard View accommodations, a chilled bottle of Schramsberg sparkling wine and handmade Woodhouse chocolates. The gracious guest room features a wood burning fireplace, oversized bathroom, and patio overlooking the adjacent vineyards and Mayacamas Mountains. Each girlfriend can keep one of the Inn’s plush bathrobes as a delightful "Wine Country Slumber Party – Unplugged" memento.
"Wine Country Slumber Party – Unplugged" starts at $1999 for two nights, based on double occupancy; taxes and gratuities are not included. The package also includes a hearty daily breakfast, complimentary on-site parking, unlimited access to the Fitness Center and two heated swimming pools. The Inn also has complimentary wired and Wi-Fi internet access, but is discouraging use with this package.
