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.
Hankering for a bit of history 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. Right now, the resort is offering the Sweetheart Package, which comes with a bottle of local bubbles and chocolate truffles and is free when guests book their stay between February 11 and February 14.
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. (If you're playing along at home: yes, February 14 is a Monday. Coincidence? We think not ... )
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 wine (plus two accompanying wine glasses), Holm Made Toffee, and bath bombs upon your arrival.
Stephanie Inn is a prime romantic destination in Cannon Beach, offering close-up views of Haystack Rock and the vast Pacific Ocean beyond. Currently, the resort is offering a "Romance Celebration Package," which features sparkling wine, chocolate covered strawberries and truffles, half dozen roses, bubble bath, scented candle, rose petals sprinkled across your bed at evening turndown—your basic fantasy suite from The Bachelor, really. If you're there on Valentine's Day proper, splash out on their $199/person prix fixe menu, which is replete with prime cuts of beef, French sauces, truffles and the piece de resistance, a red velvet mousse cake for dessert. (Careful though—eat too much and you might be too full to make proper use of that romantic suite!)
February is a great time to visit Southern Oregon—it's 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 champagne 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.
Lovers (and lovers of beer) will adore Carlton’s 82-acre Abbey Road Farm, a unique bed and breakfast resort with suites located inside of renovated grain silos. Five suites are available to rent, each decked out with a jetted tub, heated floor, and cozy farm vibes. This weekend, chef Will Preisch at Abbey Road Farm is hosting Verdant—an intimate six-course dining experience with seasonal fare, paired with wine from the Abbey Road Farm collective. Verdant lunch, which will feature fresh produce from the farm, is available Saturday, February 12, and Sunday, February 13, at 1 p.m. Specifics on the meals are few, but if it's anything like Holdfast, the reservation only fine-dining club which closed in 2020 and serves as the inspiration for Verdant, it will be creative, unpredictable and just a little bit mad science-y.
