Every once in a while a couple will decide to take an in-house vacation. In the US that is. So for this week, Ever After Honeymoons is going to focus on National honeymoons! Let’s start on the West Coast (or the best coast).
Washington starts this coast, and The Inn at Langley is a gorgeous place to start your honeymoon. The Inn is a contemporary-rustic hotel on Whidbey Island, Washington. It is a quiet resort and you can get completely lost in it’s charm and romance. From there, you can even take an hour car’s ride and a short, but sweet, ferry trip into Seattle.
And then there’s Oregon, and you’ll want – no, need – to check out The Allison Inn and Spa in Newberg. Only 45 minutes from Portland, this beautiful hotel is entirely charming and relaxing. And talk about location! It borders a working farm and vineyard (which is pictured below as a room’s view!). The spa has 12 treatment rooms, there is an indoor pool as well as romantic walks to take all along the property.
Big Sur, California rolls around Highway 1 for about 90 miles and jets up from the ocean where the Santa Lucia Mountains meet the water. Big Sur has a tourist-dependent economy, but a peaceful and pleasant feel. The Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur is a fabulous choice for a romantic getaway. It is built into a cliff 1,200 feet about the ocean. The Inn has a spa, as well as private yoga lessons, meditation, couple’s massage, guided hikes and pools. If you want to spend a few nights along the breathtaking Northern California Coast, The Post Ranch Inn is perfect for you.
So, maybe you’re making your way down the coast, how about right before the border, in Coronado, California. There lies the Beach Village at The Del. Surfing, kayaking, a fitness center and beach bonfires are all offered at Coronado Beach, where the resort is located. San Diego has always been a gorgeous California location, but Coronado is a perfect little vacation spot. There is so much to see and explore.
There is also the famous Hotel del Coronado which was built in 1888, and has housed presidents, athletes and many famous actors. It is a beautiful place to check out! Obviously these are just a few options, but if you’re looking to explore the West Coast and these don’t fit your fancy, let Ever After Honeymoons customize the perfect trip for you!
