My husband and I are big on one and two night getaways. We try to have something planned every two months or so. Isle Dream Cottage in Eastsound on Orcas Island (www.isledreamorcas.com) stands tall among our favorites for a number of reason:
Queen bed lays in a bay window with a great water view.
Kitchen with all dishes, cookware, soap, towels, etc.
Custom tile bathroom with a spacious skylight over the shower.
Woodstove with firewood; CD player, phone, TV/VCR
Deck for dining above the water
Little fishing dock all to yourself
Waterfront picnic table, hammock, starfish
Three acres of privacy to roam around through the trees
On site massage is available
If you find two red crab crackers in the kitchen, chances are they used to ours. Enjoy! For ideas of stuff to do on Orcas (beside hang out at the cottage) visit http://www.orcasisland.org.
Other favorites include:
The Willows in Woodinville, WA
The Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver, BC
The Barn in Prosser, WA (not romantic, but a fine place to stay when in Prosser)
Inn at Salmon Bay in Bingen, WA
