If you're looking for a romantic getaway in scenic Welches, consider this luxurious studio looking out on the green, manicured fifth-tee of Resort at the Mountain's Foxglove Golf Course. Less than 1,000 feet from the meandering waters of the Sandy River, this elegant little nest has just enough room for you and that special someone. This private studio echoes the opulence of the larger home of which it's a part, yet offers you amenities - like a kitchenette, king bed, and fireplace - you'd expect from a bigger accommodation. Though it's perfect for golfers, the surrounding fairways are just the beginn...ing of recreational opportunities and beauty you'll find all along the Mount Hood Corridor.
After you've played that last hole, come back to this beautiful space and relax. With its vaulted ceilings, diagonal lines, and intelligent design, it has a spacious feel, avoiding the boxy appearance all too common in single rooms. Have a seat in the comfortable chair and bring up the laptop with the free WiFi. Check your emails, or stream some music on your favorite Internet radio station. Snuggle on the bed in the glow of the propane fireplace. And don't forget to pack some DVDs to enjoy on those chilly nights. You'll also be able to watch the next episode of that cable show you just can't miss! Through the windows, you'll be treated to the tree-studded landscape of the golf course, and views of distant Mount Hood.
Before bed, relax in the steamy warmth of the (shared) sauna. At bedtime, sleep soundly and comfortably under the covers of the big king bed, laden with quality linens and soft pillows. There are extra blankets if you're cold. In the morning, your feet will meet the warmth of the carpeted floor. Freshen up in the stylish, full bathroom with its attractive tile work and candlelight sconces.
Tucked into the corner of the room is a scrappy little kitchenette, complete with a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker so you can grab that much needed cup of joe in the morning. And, you can enjoy the same brew you enjoy at home with the coffee grinder: make room for some of your favorite beans! For some serious eating, there are some fine eateries right in nearby Welches where you can satisfy just about any taste. In fact, you can take your honey for a romantic meal at the beautiful Altitude Restaurant (part of the Resort on the Mountain complex).
This studio, and the larger home which is also available for bigger parties, are part of the Resort at the Mountain, where - along with a 27-hole championship golf course and 18-hole putting course - there's a full-service spa, fitness center, croquet and lawn bowling court, sand volleyball and badminton courts, children's playground, and outdoor pool (enclosed and heated seasonally). This beautiful home is located right near the Salmon/Huckleberry Wilderness where you can explore 31 miles of trails, including the popular, Salmon Creek Trail. Anglers can toss their lines in the nearby Sandy, or head over to the Salmon River. If you're coming in winter, Skibowl and Summit are about 15 minutes to the east. Mount Hood Meadows is about 45 minutes away.
Treat yourself to that romantic getaway this weekend in colorful and popular Welches. Bring, the clubs, the bike, the kayak, or the skis...whatever you call fun, to this elegant little studio right on the links, and close to all the fun things to do and see in the Mount Hood area!
