Mount Olympus? Too exclusive. Instead, head to the Olympic Mountains and the Camano Island Inn, just south of the San Juan Islands and about an hour from Seattle.
"Guests at this inn on a bluff above Puget Sound are treated to nonstop views of doll's porpoises, bald eagles, whales, and sea otters, not to mention the Saratoga Passage and Olympic Mountains," says Travel + Leisure.
Escape for two nights, Sundays through Thursdays ($299) or Fridays and Saturdays ($325), to rooms so romantic they would make Aphrodite proud—think hot tubs, plush featherbeds, views of the water, and the sound of waves crashing against the shore. For an even better idea of what's in store, watch this video. Need a longer trip? Combine vouchers to stay for up to four nights.
Start each day with a breakfast fit for Zeus: eggs Benedict or French toast, served with fresh pastries, fruit, hash browns, and toast. Dine by the fireplace in the dining room, under the covered deck overlooking the Saratoga Passage, or in your room.
Divine attractions await you on this getaway. Tucked away from stress and distractions, you can reconnect with nature on the shore of Camano Island State Park (tip: take a picnic lunch with you). Later, get a bird's-eye-view of the area with Canopy Tours Northwest.
In the evening, try dishes with fresh, local ingredients and organic vegetables and herbs from the garden (Escapees have a $25 credit for dinner).
The next day, use your $25 spa credit toward a signature facial, which uses custom-blend masks with seasonal fruit, vegetables, and herbs from Éminence Organic Skin Care line to nourish the skin. And if you're feeling indulgent, schedule a hot stone massage, too, for back-to-back treatments.
Ethereal accommodations paired with a down-to-earth price—grab one of these Escapes before they make like Hermes and all fly away.
