Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it's time to get your plans booked. Make sure that special someone knows just how much they mean to you with these great options in Mt. Hood Territory.
With Valentine's Day falling on a Friday this year, places will likely book up quickly, making planning even more important. Mt. Hood Territory businesses love to celebrate love and offer specialty romantic dinner options throughout the area for night-of celebrations with options to turn it into a long weekend. From cooking classes to multi-course meals or overnight possibilities, you can bet your sweetheart's taste buds will be overjoyed.
Like getting your hands dirty? You should try a cooking class taught by Chef Jessica Hansen with The Kitchen at Middleground Farms. Their Date Night Out class is inspired by aphrodisiacs and explores these dishes and myths. There is also a brunch class complete with champagne, or a date night class focused on foods like oysters, lamb, chocolate and red wine.
If you appreciate wine as much or more then the meal itself, you could opt for the Wine Dinner at St. Josef's Winery where wines will be expertly paired with a multi-course meal by their famed chef. Indulge in champagne, appetizers and your favorite St. Josef's wine while enjoying the atmosphere of the barrel room on Saturday, February 15.
For an interactive and fun time you'll love the scene at World of Speed's Atomic Lounge (think Mad Men vibes) for their Trivia & Car-aoke event on Thursday, February 13. With light appetizers and wine or beer available you'll be ready for light-hearted competition and showing off your vocal talents.
If you want to head up to the mountain for the weekend, make sure you book your lodging and what better place than a vacation rental thoughtfully picked by Cupid? Or, more specifically, Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals who has a curated list of rentals tailored to Romantic Retreat Homes... so how can you go wrong there?
If you want the trifecta, you should definitely hit Timberline Lodge & Ski Area for your overnight stay, skiing and Valentine's Dinner. A romantic multi-course meal from the award-winning Cascade Dining Room will feature incredible food, wine pairings and desserts, all while looking out the window to see the sparkling white mountain as the lights bounce off the slopes.
Whatever you end up choosing, you really can't go wrong with Valentine's Day in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory, unless you don't book now!
