Here is a guide to our favorite places to spend the most romantic holiday of the year!
A February night on the Oregon Coast is always romantic with crashing waves, stormy skies or delightful winter sunshine. Now add in the romance of staying beneath a historic lighthouse! The former assistant innkeeper's house operates as bed and breakfast complete with an in-house ghost (friendly "Rue") and delightful amenities.
With the possibility of snow forever teasing, head up to the Cascades to be closer to the snowy possibilities. The Westfir Lodge is a cozy historic home offering an array of adventures led by the lodge's friendly owners. If snowshoeing sounds romantic, here is the chance!
With lodge rooms, private cabins and RV sites, there are plenty of overnight options. Pack along the fixings for a romantic dinner or make dining arrangements with a local restaurant. Then enjoy wandering the garden paths and soaking in the hot spring-fed swimming pool. Bliss out for a couple of relaxing days.
Adjacent the 5th Street Public Market, The Gordon Hotel is a newer, artsy hotel with easy access to excellent dining, wine tasting, spa services and shopping. If the all the rooms are full, check into the next door Inn at the 5th, always a top-rated romantic experience.
Treat your sweetheart to a luxurious stay at this bed & breakfast at the foot of Skinner Butte in Eugene's historic district. Stroll the gardens, sit by the fire in your room or soak in an elegant tub!
Overlooking the river, close to the shopping mall and miles away from daily life, the Valley River Inn is the perfect destination for a romantic escape right in town. Ride bikes along the riverfront path and enjoy excellent meals from Sweetwaters restaurant in your room or out on the patio.
