Guests can relax in the intimate setting of the Inn Keepers Room, which features two twin beds and deep red tones ($125), or spend a night in Le Petite Alcove, whose inner coziness boasts a queen-sized snore spot, a pile of fancy pillows, and light green hues ($120). A continental breakfast is included with each room, and visitors will also receive dinner vouchers ($25 if staying in the Inn Keepers Room, $20 if staying in Le Petite Alcove).

A bottle of Domaine Ste. Michelle is included to make sure that throats are properly infused with bubbles during your stay ($26).
