At times every relationship needs some getaway time. A time for just the two of you to go to a romantic place, relax and have some fun. It can be over a weekend or several days--a time to renew and refresh.
Oregon has some special romantic places that are sure to please. Whether you like the ocean beaches, the mountains, want to be on a river, or in the middle of the city, there is something for you.
One thing Oregon does really well is rustic. Picture yourself in a rustic lodge, listening to the river and the sounds of the forest. Or maybe watching the softly falling snow with a cup of hot chocolate in your hand and the sound of a crackling fire in the fireplace.
Choose a mountain cabin or a bed and breakfast on the slopes of Mt. Hood, a room in romantic Timberline Lodge, or an isolated lodge on the Rogue River.. On the edge of the Cascade Mountains in Central Oregon near Sisters spend a romantic weekend at the newly built Five Pine Lodge and Spa.
If the beach and rolling waves say "romance" to you like it does for most people, you are sure to find the perfect place at the romantic Oregon Coast. A place where you can be alone when you want and still have plenty of things to do.
The Oregon Coast is inviting even in the winter time. A best kept secret is that the weather is usually better during September, October, and even November than it is in the summer months and there are fewer people and lodging rates are lower.
One of the most romantic places I know of on the south Oregon Coast is WildSpring Guest Habitat. Here you can have a two-room cabin in the woods with wild ferns, deer, and other wild life and still enjoy the ocean view from the guest hall and spa.
You will be the only guests at New England House with your own private entrance. Located on the Central Oregon Coast at Yachats, it is right on the ocean so you won't have far to go to enjoy a stroll on the beach. Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast while watching the waves roll in.
The Timber Suite at Sand Lake Country Inn has a private entrance, a wood-burning fireplace, and a jacuzzi. A four-course breakfast will be delivered to your door each morning. Sand Lake Country Inn is on the north coast about one mile east of Pacific City.
The Sea Spirit House Bed and Breakfast at Yachats is the perfect place to relax and unwind with your partner. The beach is just a few steps away.
There are also some very romantic hotels on the coast. Some will even help you plan a beach wedding. See Oregon Coast Hotels.
Spend a few days in Oregon's wine country. Go on a tour of Oregon wineries and visit their tasting rooms. Some of the vineyards have their own bed and breakfasts and many of them have facilities for weddings as well.
A stay at Kelty Estate Bed and Breakfast places you in the heart of Oregon's wine county. Spend a romantic weekend here and visit the many wineries nearby. Then return to Kelty for afternoon wine and cheese.
Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn is just ten minutes outside of McMinnville. From the inn visitors have a view of the vineyards, the valley below, the Coast Range, and Mt. Hood in the distance. You can have either a suite or a single room. A wine tasting is held in the afternoon.
At A Tuscan Estate, you not only get to stay in a beautiful colonial style house, but you also get expert advice on the wines of the area from the owner who is a certified Sommelier. The breakfasts are to die for. You have your choice of a room in the house or the more spacious apartment next door.
A weekend or a few days in Portland can be just as romantic as the beach or the mountains. Stay at a romantic hotel or bed and breakfast, take in a play at a Portland theater, a performance by the Oregon Symphony, or go on a river cruise on the Willamette or Columbia. Dine in one of Portland's many romantic restaurants.
The perfect place to stay is The River Place Hotel. The Fireplace Suites have a view of the city of Portland, Tom McCall Waterfront Park, and the Willamette River.
Another romantic choice is the The Vintage Plaza Hotel with its Tuscan-style decor. Located in downtown Portland, it is convenient to the theater and shopping.
The town of Ashland in Southern Oregon is very romantic with its beautiful Lithia Park and its theaters. Choose any of these Bed and Breakfasts in Ashland for a romantic getaway and enjoy the plays at the Ashland Shakespeare Theater and the Angus Bowman Theater. Also spend some time exploring the historic town of Jacksonville.
