Now is the time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! If you want to make it special this year, be sure to include travel.  Here is a great Valentine’s Day Package.  Be sure to put Pursell Farms on your romance radar this year. They also offer the Spring House Spa at Pursell Farm!

Romantic couples will discover an exceptional celebration at Pursell Farms with the Valentine’s Winter Romance package, featuring an engaging art experience, handsomely-appointed accommodations, a multi-course dinner paired with wines, and special extras to create a memorable evening. The package is offered Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11, and Tuesday, February 14, 1017.

The Paint ‘n Passion Art Experience is presented in the afternoon on the day of arrival. Chef Andrea Griffith will offer guests a sampling of chocolates and sweets, Sommelier José Montalvo will pour a signature passion cocktail to sip, and Artist-in-Residence Vaughan Pursell Spanjer will guide guests in creating a keepsake painting to take home.

“Painting lets us create a story, and takes us to a place of imagination and inspiration,” said Ms. Spanjer. “Art evokes emotion, so couples sharing an art experience may find a new way to relate to each other, and have fun in the process.”

Late afternoon, couples may relax together fireside with aperitifs and canapés, and enjoy scenic views of Lodge Lake and the 17th green from the Great Room of the Parker Lodge, with generous seating, an oversized stacked-stone fireplace, red oak floors, and high ceilings of Ponderosa pine with hand-hewn west coast cedar trusses.

Soft candlelight creates a lovely ambiance for Chef Griffith’s five-course menu including a dessert of decadent red velvet cake topped with rich cream cheese icing and embossed with strawberries and chocolate. Sommelier Montalvo pairs wines from around the world with each course for an outstanding dining experience.

Upon return to their guestroom, couples will find Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries for a toast to the perfect Valentine’s Day.

For an extra indulgence during their stay, guests may add a Valentine’s Cocoa Scrub spa treatment, with a glass of Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries to enjoy at the spa, and a massage mitten to take home at $115; an 18-hole round of golf on FarmLinks at $49; or a round of sporting clays at The Orvis® Shooting Grounds at $70. Prices are per person.
