Thoreau and Emerson had the right idea—a little me-time in nature is soothing for the soul. Transcend the everyday with this week's Escape to wide-open Vida, Oregon, about 30 minutes east of Eugene on the edge of Willamette National Forest.

The McKenzie River Inn is offering a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($107) or Fridays and Saturdays ($127), in the Romantic Suite, the West Room, or the East Room. If it's true solitude you seek, opt for a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($138) or Fridays and Saturdays ($158), in a cabin.

Never mind that Vida is pronounced with a long "i"; it's spelled like the Spanish word for "life," and that's exactly what you'll get at this rustic Lane County getaway: a bountiful orchard, winding hiking trails, nesting osprey, and the slow-flowing McKenzie River just steps from your door.

The interior tells a different, though no less alluring, story: The West Room boasts an en suite hot tub, the East Room features a panoramic view of the river, and the Romantic Suite is outfitted with an antique hundred-year-old bed frame.

Meanwhile, a cabin stay earns you two half-bottles of wine upon arrival. Each cabin is a secluded nook ideal for romance, and they're equipped with kitchenettes, hot tubs, and private decks with a view of the water.

Start your day with breakfast in the main dining area, where you might indulge in French toast, salmon omelets, or a garden medley quiche, made with fruits and veggies grown in the orchard.

Then cast a line in the river. The beginning of the year already promises trout, and innkeeper Bert offers guided fly fishing expeditions along the river. Go with the flow or head upstream—there are plenty of opportunities for both rafting and simply cruising.

However you choose to fill out your Escape, you're bound to find virtue in self-reliance. And by self-reliance, of course, we mean summoning the confidence to break out of the city, into the backwoods of Vida, and onto the waterside dream that is the McKenzie River Inn.

  • "I'm a regular traveler throughout the Pacific Northwest, and it's simply wonderful to catch my breath at this B&B on the river and enjoy the fishing, the splendid views, the excellent breakfast, the clean and comfortable rooms, and the pleasant service."
