McMenamins!

The grand Lodge is an amazing get away, my husband and our made our first trip here in the Spring of 2006 and we got engaged that trip and only 4 months later we were back and were married at this lodge in September. It's gorgeous and has everything you could possibly need onsite. And it's reasonably priced. This building was built in 1922 as a Masonic and Eastern Star home and was renovated by Mcmenamins in 2000, the rooms are smaller and most with just a sink and mirror, the common bathrooms are on every floor and you don't ever really have to worry about waiting in line for them, it's a great way to do it in my opinion because it keeps the cost of the rooms low...around $45/night.
Go to www.mcmenamins.com to find out more about it.

What to do

Onsite you will find a disc golf course, a spa, pool, theatre and several different pubs and restaurants. They also have live music weekly and through mcmenamins website you can reserve rooms as part of a package, for example the romance package leaves massage oil, champagne and take home flutes, chocolate and a bottle of wine for an additional $35 to the cost of the room. Or the tour and taste package includes transportation to local vineyards, wine tasting, dinner at the yardhouse pub that night and breakfast the following morning and lodging all for $240!!!! You can beat it! You'll love the chill relaxed vibe and romantic getaway this place has to offer.

Artwork

You'll find art all over this place, in every corner there is something to be seen. Don't forget about snookum the strangest game of pool ever in the bar in the basement.
