Harbor Inn. Brookings, Oregon.
Surprisingly, these charming cabins are still available for weekend rentals. If you’re feeling rustic and wanting a quiet getaway to the forest, these are ideal. Silver Falls is less than two hours away by car. Bring wood, your goods for hot toddies and champagne cocktails. You’re set.

This historic brick hotel 20 minutes South from the Dalles is charming to say the least. The couple running the hotel are the friendliest and warmest people to be around. There’s a memorable breakfast buffet in the morning. Bring a friend or two, some unfinished projects and the expectation that 2017 will be a productive year.
