Flagstaff and Pine Canyon offer romance every day of the year, but Valentine’s Day is when it’s fun to take things up a notch. For Pine Canyon residents who want to stay close to home on February 14 – but want something more special than cooking for themselves or ordering out – the answer is easy: Head to the Clubhouse for Happy Hour and Valentine’s Day Dinner, 5pm-8pm. Executive Chef Lapinski and his culinary team always make it a magical evening. Another great option is spending an entire romantic weekend in one of the Pine Canyon Club Cabins – but make sure to contact us for reservations ASAP, because space is limited!
