Foodie Love: Romantic Getaway at Riverhouse
Ahhh…spring is in the air. Feel it, taste it, celebrate it from alongside Deschutes River’s burbling banks at Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend, Oregon, only a 3.5-hour drive from Portland. Experience Central Oregon’s pristine wilderness, and savor flavors of the Pacific Northwest at CURRENTS at the Riverhouse restaurant. Amid the warm, elegance of rich wood and supple leather, dine on culinary masterpieces handcrafted from fresh, locally sourced ingredients and paired with magnificent river views. See for yourself why this completely renovated hotel is the ideal place to stay in Bend.
Arise & Dine
Book a Bed & Breakfast Package, or select from an appetizing abundance of breakfast options ranging from a healthy, granola-rich parfait to Huevos Rancheros (they’re off the chains!). You can work off breakfast on Mt. Bachelor’s slopes. (Ski season runs till May!) Tromp or bike along mountain trails, fragrant with Ponderosa pine. Abundant waterways offer kayaking and canoeing, and SUP aficionados love the Cascades Lakes for prime flatwater paddling.
Not-to-be missed: Bread Pudding French Toast: a scrumptious medley of pecans, bananas, cinnamon and crispy bread, accompanied by a steaming mug of Stumptown coffee, of course.
Savor the Night
If you visit the weekend of April 14-15, groove to the eclectic jams of Grammy-nominated multi-saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, and dine from a special “jazz” dinner menu. Or simply spend an intimate evening lingering over a romantic dinner for two. Read more about Riverhouse Jazz here.
Not-to-be missed: Steamed Pacific clams with roasted tomatoes followed by bacon-crusted steelhead with spinach risotto and Sherry broken butter sauce. Feelin’ dessert? Go for the bread pudding with caramel sauce.
Carefree, Cocktails & Cuddling…Oh My!
Meander out onto the hotel patio to relax after dinner. Beneath a blanket of starlight, snuggle beneath a blanket yourselves. Warmed by an elegant outdoor fireplace, toast each other and listen to the rushing river’s serenade. Book a Romantic Getaway package.
Not-to-be missed: The Nudge on the River cocktail, coffee laced with brandy, Kahlúa and Godiva dark chocolate. Yum!
