The Destination
Long a mecca for outdoor recreation, boasting—hands down—the country's best windsurfing and kiteboarding, Hood River has also begun to make a name for itself in the wine world. While the town's three or four breweries, including the nationally recognized Full Sail Brewing Company, cater to river rats who descend on the gorge each summer, wine connoisseurs are flocking to the region's more than 40 tasting rooms for a sip of the Columbia Gorge American Viticultural Area's best. And with wine has come a boutique food and hospitality industry, which fits nicely in Hood River's well-preserved Victorian- and Craftsman-style architectural landscape.

The Digs
Overlooking the river, the luxurious Villa Columbia Bed and Breakfast puts guests in the thick of Hood River's many offerings. Situated downtown, this five-room inn boasts a perfect five-star rating and nearly 100 reviews on TripAdvisor. It's appointed with elegant antique furnishings such as sleigh beds and vintage armoires, and each room is equipped with a king- or queen-size bed, a private bathroom, cable TV, wireless Internet, and a spacious closet. Two rooms feature hardwood floors, most have Jacuzzi tubs, and a few even have fireplaces.

In the morning, you'll be treated to a gourmet three-course breakfast for two. Made entirely from scratch, the meal features everything from crepes and omelets to fresh fruit and homemade pastries, all of which are prepared with locally sourced organic ingredients.

The Diversions
• Explore six area wineries with your included tasting passport
• Hike hundreds of miles of trails in the Mount Hood National Forest
• Peruse the many shops, restaurants, and galleries in Downtown Hood River
• Cast a line with a private guide on a Columbia River fishing trip

  • "The couple who runs this B&B is so sweet. We enjoyed every bit of our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic getaway."
