Can anyone recommend someplace for a last minute weekend getaway for the dh and me? We have done downtown Portland before, so probably would like somewhere else.

Any ideas of off the beaten path places or really anywhere that you enjoyed. Mid priced budget but not too cheap. I'd like to stay somewhere nice and relaxing.

Thanks

Bend or Ashland would be beautiful this time of year - even Crater Lake would be awesome if you didn't mind the cold.

Further north you could look into Bonneville Hot Springs (in WA in the gorge), Canon Beach, or wine country out in the Amity/McMinnville/Newberg areas.

Or how about Timberline Lodge?

Come ski White Pass (between Yakima and Packwood) You can stay on the Mountain or in Yakima or even tiny little Packwood where we have LOTS of elk that wander thru the town Elk on facebook
