Places I’ve Been: Sisters Oregon

About 3 hours away from Portland OR, Sisters is one of the best places I’ve ever visited!

We stayed at Five Pine Lodge, a charming resort. Our little cabin in the woods was cozy and rustic, but it had all the luxuries of a high-end hotel room.

On the resort’s campus there’s lots to do; with a salt water pool, a spa, a movie house, a brewery and an athletic club.

They have a daily happy hour where guests are invited to the main lodge for a free tastings of beer and wine that are produced on site.

The resort also offers free bike rentals so guests can check out the various shops and restaurants in the town. When I asked the concierge if they had locks for the bikes, she responded with “oh no, everyone in town knows the bikes belong to the hotel.” I love that.  We quickly extended our stay from one night to two.

We dined at a tiny little restaurant in town called Jen’s Garden which is located in a little cottage.  It was excellent and everyone we encountered on our entire trip was incredibly friendly.

One of my favorite nights was a night spent in our cabin watching a DVD of Dirty Dancing (borrowed from the lodge) while sipping wine and working on a puzzle. (I love a good puzzle!)

I hope to return one day. It was one of the most peaceful and unexpected places I’ve ever visited. And the drive there from Portland was spectacular- so incredibly beautiful.
