Affordable Romantic Getaway

Groupon is offering a one night stay at the Historic Columbia Gorge Hotel.  For $120 you get one night’s stay plus $40 towards dinner at Simons. (This deal can be found on the side bar)

My husband and I went there for the first time in June.  There are 2 different places to stay.  This deal is for the historic side, but we stayed in the newer side.  We didn’t realize it when we booked it.  I have to say there were no complaints, but I can’t wait to stay in the historic Hotel.  The grounds, which are used for many weddings, are beautiful.

Hood River is surround by amazing hikes, wineries and breweries.  It’s an outdoor town and romantic all wrapped up in one.

My husband and I had the best time on our last trip, and we can’t wait to go back.  Best part, it’s only 1 hour away.  So you feel like you are getting out of town, but not losing a whole day to traveling just to get there.

This Groupon is good until May 31, 2011.  There are blackout dates that will apply, so call early and check availability.

Visit after Thanksgiving and you will see the grounds lit up with 500,000 white lights.

This deal will last 3 more days.  Trust me, this is most definitely a Money4This expense.  I am a big fan of getting away with my husband.  You cannot put a price tag on keeping the flame alive.
