Long before hipsters, grunge, and even lumberjacks, the iconic plaid button-up was the lifeblood of Pendleton, Oregon, home of the wool mill of the same name. And while the garments are still produced there today, this historic town straddling the Umatilla River is as diverse as its homespun patterns.

And where better than The Pendleton House Bed & Breakfast, a stately pink mansion built in 1917 and just a block from the river, to take in the city's storied underground tunnels, the nearby Blue Mountain foothills, the downtown boutiques, and, of course, the Pendleton Woolen Mills.

With this week's Escape, you'll get a two-night stay for two, plus daily breakfast for two, a bottle of champagne from Walla Walla (an up-and-comer in the wine world), and The Pendleton House's own artisanal truffles ($149).

Each of five rooms is uniquely decorated—some showcasing ornate curtains, original Chinese wallpaper, and balconies; others bearing understated yet elegant appointments like rich antique furnishings and fireplaces—and all have luxe king- or queen-size beds and shared baths.

Breakfast at the manor starts with Pendleton's best coffee and a selection of teas, fruit, and homemade biscuits. Dine on blueberry pancakes, peach cobbler, or cranberry-stuffed French toast, then head out to discover downtown Pendleton.

Take a tour of the Pendleton Woolen Mill, and pick up a blanket or garment at a 10 percent discount at the adjacent outlet. Then, dip into the dark side of Pendleton with a tour of the former Red Light and Chinatown districts, beneath which a series of basalt-rock tunnels offers a peek into Old Pendleton, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

For dinner, look no further than Virgil's At Cimmiyotti's, a historic restaurant serving steak, seafood, and Italian staples, and with this week's Escape, you'll get a free dessert with the purchase of two entrées. Save room for a glass of wine, provided each evening back at the B&B—the perfect end to an Escape sure to leave you spinning.

  • "This gorgeous, 6,000 square-foot pink stucco home hasn't changed much since it was built in 1917. The Chinese wallpaper, custom fittings, woodwork—all original in this blend of French neoclassical and Italianate architecture."
