expressions of love
Butterflies are a symbol of freedom and expression. Start your romantic
vacation together with the release of butterflies upon arrival, or after
your first breakfast together prior to heading out for the day. We will
set the basket of butterflies by your door in the morning, and you can
simply open the basket and release the colorful beauties into the air.
(Please place your order at least two weeks in advance April-July, 10
days is strongly recommended the rest of the year.)
Relax next to your loved one as you both experience personalized aromatherapy massages in Milliken's intimate Spa or in the riverside cabana (during summer months). Using a full range of therapeutic techniques and custom blended aromatic essential oils, the Milliken Couples Massage will comfort and restore you both.
two turtle doves
Throughout history the dove has been a symbol of eternal love. A ceremonial
white dove release creates a unique and unexpected surprise. Prior to
leaving Milliken Creek Inn & Spa, seal your romance with the release of
two white doves. (Please request the doves at least four business days
in advance; subject to certain weather conditions.)
etchings for bumble bee and thee
Our concierge staff can pre-order your favorite Napa Valley wine to be placed in your room prior to arrival with a personalized etching. It can include your favorite nicknames for each other, a touching message or a proposal. We can also have wine glasses engraved with your names.
love is in the air
While at a vineyard, up in a balloon, at Milliken Creek Inn & Spa, or on a picnic, we'll assist you in the timing of an aerial message directed to the one you love. Both sky banners and skywriting are available. Some restrictions apply, so please coordinate in advance.
message in a bottle
Release your creative side and share your thoughts with the one you love. Prior to arriving at Milliken, handwrite a love letter to your significant other. We will place it in a bottle to be delivered to your room with your breakfast service. If you would like to personally seal the message in the bottle, please see our concierge upon arrival and we will work with you to keep your thoughts private.
capture your love in pictures
One of Napa Valley's premier photographers, Nanci Kerby, is known for photographs that "tell a story," each one in a unique and meaningful way. The backdrop for your special photo shoot can be the beautifully landscaped gardens at Milliken or on location in Napa Valley. Nanci's warm demeanor will make it easy for you to pose naturally, capturing the essence and emotion of your romance in a truly memorable way.
nightly turndown delights for more ooh's and ahh's
Let Milliken Creek's expert concierge team create a truly memorable turndown
service. A few suggestions: additional candlelight, bouquet of favorite
flowers on the bedside table, candy from our local Yountville's best,
rose petals around the room and in your bathtub, a warm fireplace, chilled
champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and luminaries outlining the
path to your room (not available with all room types). We would also be
happy to put other items you'd like to add, such as lingerie, perfume
or customized towels, in the room prior to your return. Or may we recommend
a basket of Shunga massage oils, a CD of sexy music and a feather?
