6 Romantic Getaways in Oregon
Romance requires no holiday. But this is corporate America, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so you'd best start planning your retreats, dinner dates, and special-day surprises.
If you're planning on staying in or around town, check out our list of Valentine's Day date ideas. But if you and your beloved are looking to skip town, love is in the air at these romantic Oregon getaways.
The Vintages Trailer Resort, Dayton
Hankering for a bit of nostalgia with your romantic getaway? The Vintages Trailer Resort, deep in the heart of wine country, features 36 fully restored and new custom built trailers, some dating back to the early 1940s. The resort offers all the glamping necessities on site, like outdoor grills, cruiser bikes, a clubhouse, and a general store to stock up on chocolates and vino. Add-on packages include Flock it to Me (a nostalgia-inducing package that boasts lawn flamingos and a Shirley Temple kit), a Little Campfire Kit, and more.
Salishan Spa and Golf Resort, Lincoln City
If the unbeatable views of Siletz Bay don’t get you at this 200-acre coastal lodge, the indulgent spa treatments will. While not cozying up next to the fireplace in your room or suite or enjoying the view from your private balcony, spend your time exploring the whirlpool hot tub, nearby nature trails, mountain bike course, and fitness center. Right now the resort is offering 33 percent off its best available rates for stays of three nights starting on a Monday. February 14 falls on a Tuesday this year, which is a sign you and your sweetie should duck out of work to take advantage of this deal with a coastal vacation.
Brasada Ranch, Bend
Over in Central Oregon, Brasada Ranch offers diverse luxury accommodations, ranging from boutique lodge suites to cabins. Explore its 2,000-acre plot of foot or by horseback, with wide-open views of the pristine Cascade Range. For Valentine’s Day, the resort is offering "Romance at the Ranch," a curated package for couples. When you reserve a ranch house guest room or suite, or a one-bedroom cabin (with or without a hot tub) for two nights, you'll receive a bottle of Brasada Ranch Cuvee with glasses, a delicious charcuterie board, and a relaxing bath amenity all delivered to your room or cabin.
Lithia Springs Resort, Ashland
February is a great time to visit Southern Oregon—it tends to be warmer down there than in Portland, and it's pre-wildfire season, too. Our pick is Ashland, where culture, local fare, unique mineral water spa treatments, a sweet local ski resort, and nature hikes abound. After exploring the area, the Lithia Springs Resort awaits, with more than four acres of lush gardens, a koi pond, fountains, gazebos, a spa and an expansive wine bar. Right now, the resort is offering an "Ultimate Romance Package," featuring a bottle of bubbly and local chocolates, a $50 voucher toward dinner at Larks in downtown Ashland (offering home-style comfort food like Southern fried chicken breast, apple cider brined and grilled pork chop, and more), and a complimentary breakfast at the resort.
Running Y Resort, Klamath Falls
Don't let the long drive dissuade you: Running Y Resort situated in Oregon's southern Cascades near Klamath Falls is for lovers. This all-seasons destination, complete with an Arnold Palmer golf course, spa and wellness center, and convenient access to various outdoor recreation, lets you choose your own adventure. Enjoy Valentine's Day evening at Running Y with a special deal that includes discounts on your stay at the Lodge, dinner at Ruddy Duck, spa services and additional small surprises. They’re also offering a curated dinner menu and live music at Ruddy Duck on Valentine’s Day to add to the romance.
Over the past decade, downtown McMinnville has become synonymous with quaint luxury. No place embodies the posh romance of this midsize wine country town better than Atticus Hotel, which is the perfect home base for exploring all that the region has to offer. Spend the weekend lounging in Pendleton bathrobes, or, take one of the hotel's signature, Dutch-style tandem bicycles out for a spin. McMinnville's restaurant scene rivals that of Portland, with offerings from newly minted icons like Okta and Humble Spirit. Stop in at the nearby Granary District, where vineyards, breweries, and retailers have reclaimed town's defunct industrial and farm buildings to provide a unique, all-in-one visitor experience.
