A Cool Oregon Hotel in Ashland: Warm Mineral Springs Piped To Every Room

Lithia Springs Resort is just 3 miles from downtown Ashland, in Southern Oregon, not more than 30 minutes from the California border. The curative mineral waters, which run underneath the resort and are rich in lithium and other minerals, are the major theme here. Choose to stay in either a studio, suite, or bungalow — whichever you choose has a soaking tub with warm mineral springs water piped into it.

Spa treatments incorporate garden views, private soaking tubs, massages, or facials. Swim in the outdoor 72-degree saltwater swimming pool, or workout in the Fitness Cottage (treadmills, yoga mats, and more). Test local wines in the Wine Garden Tasting Room or explore more than four acres of lush gardens draped with grapes and wisteria, plus fountains and a koi pond. Take the hotel’s loaner bikes and discover the 20-mile Bear Creek Greenway paved bike trail that follows along the creek.

If you do choose to leave the property by car, you’re only 77 miles from Oregon’s only national park, the stunning Crater Lake, and you’re right in the middle of numerous vineyards and wineries, as well as a river that begs to be rafted.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Troutdale: Whimsical Art and Food and Drinks Galore

McMenamin’s Edgefield, which is just 30 miles east of Portland, is definitely one of those places that you won’t want to leave. Especially if you’re into not having televisions or telephones, but dig lots of whimsical artwork and 11 onsite restaurants, bars, distilleries, breweries, coffee houses, tea rooms, and wine tasting rooms. The hotel and grounds are covered in unique sculptures, paintings, and other artwork. It’s a fun pastime to meander peeking into corners and behind doors just to see what there is to discover.

The McMenamin brothers have a penchant for restoring historic properties around the Northwest, and the 74-acre Edgefield is their flagship locale. The brothers converted each outbuilding into its own destination, such as the tiny Jerry’s Ice House, which (you guessed it) was once the property’s ice house, but is now a pub dedicated to the memory of the Grateful Dead rock band. The Little Red Shed used to serve as the farm’s incinerator. It now seats 10 people, and still features flames in the form of fireplaces and outdoor firepits. The Power Station Theater & Pub (formerly the laundry and power facilities) offers a movie screen, beer, and lunch or dinner.

You can enjoy McMenamin’s ales, whiskeys, wines, and food anywhere on the grounds. There’s also a tea house, a soaking pool, a spa and salon, and two par-3 golf courses (9 and 20 holes) that meander throughout the Edgefield property and along the Columbia River Gorge for incredible views. Browse the organic flower gardens, herb garden, and vegetable garden, where a lot of the food for the farm’s menus comes from.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Yachats: Hike and Dine Just Feet From the Ocean's Edge

Yachats (pronounced YAH-hots) is the type of town that is rightly described as quaint. When you’re here, the rhythms of the ocean guides your days — there’s no movie theater or shopping in sight, other than small mom-and-pop stores.

Yachats’ Adobe Resort is adjacent to the public 804 Trail, which was originally a native footpath and now meanders along the shore, across the oceanside lawn of the Adobe, and even through some backyards.

The Adobe’s restaurant and lounge has magnificent views of the ocean, which surges just 50 feet away from your table. Enjoy casual yet delicious meals from the lounge menu such as a salmon BLT, or more upscale surf and turf meals from the dining room. Start your day off with traditional hearty breakfasts like biscuits and gravy, a seafood omelet, or eggs benedict.

If you really want to relax in one of the oceanside rooms (with a private patio and whirlpool, or honeymoon suite with en-suite jacuzzi) and you want something a little extra, request the fruit and cheese plate with a bottle of champagne and keepsake flutes.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Bend: Borrow a Cruiser Bike Or A Breedlove Guitar

The eco-chic rooms with forest-inspired décor at the Oxford Hotel in Bend will have you lounging in comfort. Cruise around downtown Bend on the hotel’s complementary cruiser bikes, and work up an appetite for the charcuterie board or truffle fries from restaurant 10below.

Rest your head on a pillow of your choice from their extensive pillow menu, and open your eyes to an original breakfast menu with unusual options like pumpkin French toast. The Jazz at the Oxford nightclub hosts world-class jazz performers. If you want to perform or practice yourself, ask the concierge to borrow one of the hotel’s Breedlove guitars – acoustic guitars handcrafted right in Bend.

The Oxford is near the Deschutes Brewery’s downtown Bend tasting room — an iconic Oregon craft beer brand and a spot on the Bend Ale Trail, with many other breweries within walking distance.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Cannon Beach: Float On Saltwater and Warm Up With A Private Fireplace

Part of the majesty of Oregon is the 363 miles of shoreline; while some spots on the coast offer rugged and rocky cliffs, others offer long stretches of flat, sandy beach. That’s what you’ll find in Cannon Beach, where the Tolavana Inn is a true oceanside hotel. Back in 2013, National Geographic named Cannon Beach one of the most beautiful places on earth, and it hasn’t changed much since then. You may also recognize its iconic views of the ocean landmark Haystack Rock from the classic movie The Goonies.

All oceanfront rooms welcome guests with a full kitchen, living room, private balcony, and a gas fireplace, perfect for warming up after your sunset stroll. Some pet-friendly rooms means your best friend can come along.

Enjoy your workout in the fitness center followed by a swim in the indoor saltwater pool. Ask ahead to request the special S’mores package which includes access to a beach fire pit and roasting sticks, chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers for four.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Eugene: Enjoy a Rooftop Bar View

Part of the swanky shopping and dining area of Eugene’s Oakway Center, Hyatt Place Hotel beckons as you browse the many great restaurants and stores right outside the hotel’s doors. You’re practically in arm’s reach of both a Trader Joe’s and a Nordstrom Rack here, and 14 miles of riverside trails if you want to walk or bike.

Enjoy views of the city spread out before you from just about any floor in the hotel, but particularly from the fifth floor rooftop “coffee to cocktails” bar, called the Sky Bar. If it’s chilly, the Sky Bar has a fire pit and propane heaters to keep you cozy as you sip a mimosa or craft beer. The Sky Bar is nice enough for couples to enjoy a romantic moment, but also casual and family friendly enough for any visitors to feel comfortable.

If you’re in town to watch the University of Oregon Ducks play, Eugene’s Hyatt Hotel is the place to be – walking distance to both Autzen Stadium for football games and PK Park for baseball.

All rooms include separate living, working, and sleeping areas. Stay fit at the full fitness center and relax post-workout at the heated indoor pool and whirlpool.

A Cool Oregon Hotel in Silverton: Explore an 80-Acre Garden and a Frank Lloyd Wright House

Silverton’s Oregon Garden Resort is close to Portland, Oregon’s major urban center. Pet friendly and family friendly, the Oregon Garden Resort offers special opportunities for wine lovers, including exclusive deals at numerous wineries in the area. All rooms feature garden views, and all feature fireplaces, spacious living rooms, and private garden patios.

Enjoy a complimentary breakfast before touring the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Gordon House, located on the resort’s grounds.

One of the best parts about a stay at the Oregon Garden Resort is the adjacent garden itself. We recommend starting with the free, narrated tram tour that runs Friday through Sunday, April through October. The garden is open daily, with no reservations needed to visit.

The Garden View Restaurant (which does indeed have a garden view) offers classic American fare such as steaks, burgers, pastas, and salads. End your night in the Fireside Lounge, sipping a glass of delicious Oregon-grown pinot noir and listening to live music on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
