7 Perfect Washington Weekend Getaways For Outdoor Lovers
Part of the fun of living in Washington is exploring the great outdoors. And sometimes you need to spend your days enjoying nature and your nights sleeping in cozy comfort. These getaways are the ultimate combination of both.
1. Mt. St. Helens
If you're wondering if you can make exploring Mt. St. Helens last an entire weekend, the answer is a resounding yes. Aside from the hikes and the breathtaking views, you can go ziplining at Treehouse Island Zip Line Adventures, taste wine at Mt. St. Helens Cellars, and sleep soundly at the nearby Eco Park Resort in Castle Rock.
2. Sun Mountain Lodge, Winthrop
The Methow Valley is one of the most visually stunning parts of our state. Explore the area to the fullest, then retreat to your luxurious room at the Sun Mountain Lodge for a "best of both worlds" experience.
3. Paradise Inn, Mt. Rainier National Park
The rooms at this inn may be modest, but you'll be surrounded by the most spectacular scenery on Earth. Mt. Rainier National Park is incredible.
4. Lake Quinault Lodge, Quinalt
This grand lodge seems to be suspended in time, and it's the perfect place to disconnect from the outside world. You'll be surrounded by lush green forest, with hiking trails steps from your door.
5. Freestone Inn, Mazama
Each room at the Freestone Inn has a view of the lake and a private veranda or deck to enjoy them. Plus, you'll be in the beautiful Methow Valley, so nature is never far away.
6. West Beach Resort, Orcas Island
You can rent beachfront cabins that sit right on the water at these Orcas Island accommodations. When you're not relaxing by the beach, you can fish, go crabbing, or check out one of Orcas Island's hiking trails.
7. Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend
You don't have to camp to stay at Fort Worden State Park, although you're certainly welcome to. They offer cozy cottages, lofts, and even premier Victorian homes. And when you step outside, you'll be surrounded by natural beauty and local history.
