Julie and I are musing about rewarding ourselves after an insanely-busy-with-work summer with a week-long working vacation somewhere in BC, Washington, Oregon or Hawaii. We’re thinking mid to late September, and we’d spend a lot of the time finishing up this marketing book we’re writing. So, you know, we need a nice room.
Ideally, it would be outside of any major city, tranquil and luxurious (though probably no more than $300 a night). Bonus points for proximity to wilderness for a bit of hiking or kayaking. As an example, the Long Beach Lodge would definitely qualify. So would the Wickanninish Inn, if their rates weren’t quite so crippling.
We’ve received a couple of great suggestions (including a vote for the north shore of Kauai), but I thought I’d crowd-source this badboy. Where have you stayed in the Pacific Northwest (uh, plus Hawaii) that meets these criteria?
