Cherry Wood Bed, Breakfast and Barn
Californian oenophiles might get sideways, but Washington wine lovers get saddled. Horseback winery tours of the sun-soaked Yakima Valley are but one of the many adventures on offer at Cherry Wood Bed Breakfast and Barn. Snuggled smack in the middle of Yakima’s wine country, this working ranch’s luxe 20-foot-tall teepees offer a delightful home base from which to explore the nearby Zillah, Yakima, Red Mountain, and Prosser wine communities. Decked out with rustic carved-wood furniture, down comforters, and private bathrooms, the teepees hardly qualify as roughing it—something greenhorns will appreciate after a few hours in the saddle. Our advice? Soak away any saddle soreness in Cherry Wood’s “twilight tubs,” outdoor clawfoot tubs accompanied by bath salts and set beneath a wide open sky. From $225, including breakfast
We know, we know, "glamping" is kind of a silly word. But savoring the outdoors in style sure isn’t. From the San Juans to Idaho, ranches, rafters, and even vintners have, in recent years, been adding deluxe digs to stunning landscapes and inviting others to experience for a few days what they savor all year long. Take a tour of some of the Northwest’s most popular spots with our slideshow, then start making summer plans … these places fill up fast!
