When it's chilly outside, cozy quarters make the best retreat. Rain on the windowpanes, a crackling fire, a comfy chair with a good book, the aroma of a warm drink or scones baking... these are the rewards at the end of the day after the adventures are done, the mountains climbed, the beach strolled, the city centers explored. 

Whether you wish to stay right in town, head to the Oregon Coast or up into the mountains, here are a few overnight destinations that inspire staying indoors.


The Campbell House Inn


Nestled between a leafy riverfront park and downtown's best boutique shopping, The Campbell House Inn offers luxury accommodations in historic, Victorian-style lodging. Each guest room has a private bath, robes and mini-refrigerator; and the extra-cozy Carriage House suites include gas fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, wet bars and private patios.

Join other guests for a glass of wine in the shared sitting room overlooking lovely manicured gardens. Play cards or read a book in the Inn where a made-to-order breakfast (with freshly baked scones) is served each morning — or stay nestled in your room watching the morning mist drift across the lawns. This romantic bed and breakfast is in a gloriously peaceful bubble at the heart of Eugene.

A luxurious Eugene bed and breakfast in a garden setting overlooking downtown Eugene and known for its charming accommodations and comforts. The Campbell House was built in 1892 and restored…

Lily of the Field Bed & Breakfast

Cottage Grove

Tucked between meadows and forest, this valley retreat is the ideal spot to get away from it all. Wrap up in a cozy blanket and curl up by the large windows to watch the wind whip up autumn leaves, rain trickling down the windows or simple farm life around you. Lily of the Field Bed & Breakfast is close to historic covered bridges, miles of scenic cycling paths and the classic gold rush and movie-set town of Cottage Grove. Idle your days browsing the local shops and museums, wine tasting or riding your bike.

Lily of the Field Bed and Breakfast is a craftsman style home located on 1,200 acres (486 ha) in Cottage Grove with meadow and mountain views. The suite offers a balcony with a private…

Heceta Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast

Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B overlooking the ocean.

North of Florence on the edge of the rugged coastline, the Heceta Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast is classically cozy. Formerly the home of the assistant lighthouse keeper, this historic lodging offers individually appointed rooms each with down duvets and unique charms from ocean views to baths with claw foot tubs. Robes are provided and are so comfy. 

Below the bed and breakfast, Cape Creek merges with the ocean on the edge of a wide sandy beach. Above, perched on the cliffs, the 100-year-old lighthouse pierces the dark with its powerful rays. Listen to the crashing waves and roaring wind from your cozy bedroom nook or grab a blanket and a book and cuddle together on the Victorian wrap-around porch.

Join other guests in the parlor by the handcrafted fireplace for the wine and cheese hour (and to share stories of "Rue" the resident ghost), and in the dining room each morning for an amazing seven-course breakfast served family style.

Westfir Lodge and Mountain Market

Westfir / Oakridge

With eight cozy bedrooms in this historic office building from the timber industry era, the Westfir Lodge is an adventurer's destination. At the trailhead for the Alpine Trail – both a hiking and mountain biking favorite – and at the Oakridge side of the scenic Aufderheide drive, this prime location is further crowned by the historic Office Covered Bridge. Holding the title of the "longest covered bridge in Oregon", the bright red Office Bridge is decked with holiday lights in the late fall. Comfortably appointed lodge rooms include bridge and garden views, and offer attached or separate baths.

A homemade breakfast is served each morning, plus offers many local and organic food and beverage selections at the Mountain Market. Relax in the living room by the wood-burning fireplace with a cup of tea and peruse through some of the timber industry artifacts. And speaking of relaxing (or at least stretching out after an intense mountain biking ride) – there is a yoga room! The down-to-earth owners are very knowledgeable on nearby things to see and do, so if you are seeking any tips or tours (how about "forest bathing"), you've checked into the right place.

The Westfir Lodge and Mountain Market is located in the heart of the Willamette National Forest at the base of the famous mountain biking and hiking trail, the Alpine Trail. They have nine…

Loloma Lodge

McKenzie River

On the other side of the Aufderheide in McKenzie Bridge, the historic Loloma Lodge sports a cozy log lodge with a great shared space, a smaller historic log cabin dubbed the "Family Cabin" and four private mid-century cabins on the river's edge. Gather around the large stone fireplace in the main lodge (for main lodge guests only) or stay toasty in your private cabin with its own wood-burning fireplace and radiant heated stone floors. Cabins have floor-to-ceiling windows looking out into the forest and over the McKenzie River.

You'll have access to kitchen facilities and outdoor barbecue, so bring provisions for a leisurely breakfast in your room. Popular for retreats, weddings and larger family or group gatherings, the Loloma Lodge is also an ideal autumn getaway destination for couples. If a quiet day of river bank fishing, hiking or napping while the river rushes by is just what you're seeking – then you've just found your little piece of mountain paradise.

Nestled in the woods along the McKenzie River, Loloma Lodge provides breathtaking lodging options. Built in 1932, the Historic Lodge offers beautiful craftsmanship and a stone fireplace. The…
