$89: Get massaged mountainside
A spectacular front-row view of Idaho's Sawtooth Range is one of the extras you get along with your massage or facial ― and glass of wine ― at the Meadow Creek Inn & Spa in Stanley, three hours north of Boise. Oh, and did we mention that the rate covers all that and your room too? From $89 per person (valid Sun–Thu); 800/811-5745. –Laura Stavoe

$95: Take a chauffeured (backroads) wine-country tour
Grape Escape Winery Tours picks up thirsty visitors in downtown Portland in one of its cushy vans and drives backroads through the rolling Chehalem Mountains while a guide explains the birth of Oregon winemaking. The bonus: You'll have plenty of cash left for wine to take home. Fri through early fall; $95 including tasting fees; 503/283-3380. –Ivy Manning

$95: Pay for an hour, stay for the day
At Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort near San Luis Obispo, California, the indulgence doesn't have to stop when your massage is over. With any 60-minute treatment, you also get a 30-minute soak under the oaks in a private mineral hot springs tub, as well as access to the resort's tai chi, yoga, and pilates classes, plus guided hikes. Treatments from $95; 800/234-5831. –Matthew Jaffe
