My wife and I flew up from Frisco, TX at the 7 month pregnant mark for one final getaway for a traveling couple. I love Oregon and she really wanted to get a place that we can enjoy sitting in the room, quiet and comfortable. Sandlake really was exactly what we wanted.
We went to the Portland food and wine festival, as well as a drive up to the Timberline Lodge in the morning which caused us to run a bit late getting in to the Inn. Diane was very gracious and met us at the door ready to help. Her friendliness and recommendations were right on the mark. Each morning we asked Diane for some suggestions based on what we wanted the day to be like and she was able to tell us where to go, where to eat, and how long everything might last.
If you've red any of the reviews, you know that Diane makes an amazing breakfast. At first I was wondering about the "picnic in your room" type of feel, but honestly, it was exactly what I think most couples want. A great meal, in the comfort of your room, so you can enjoy your meal the way you want on your own.
I do also want to mention the picnic lunch. As 2 teachers, with a kid on they way, I was worried about the cost a bit. I have to say the picnic lunch was more than worth the money and was honestly one of our best meals. It had everything from a blanket to drinks, hot soup, deli meats and cheese... we found a beach about an hour south on our drive and had a very filling meal. The only issue was the basket was so heavy with items!!! Can't reccomend the picnic enough
Lastly, we stayed in the Timbers Suite. We are tempurpedic people and are very picky about our mattresses (though we usually just deal with subpar sleep!) The mattress was incredibly comfortable. I wanted the suite because of hte fireplace, my wife because of the massive tub... neither disappointed.
We have travelled extensively, and I really only write reviews when some place is outstandingly good or outstandlingly terrible. The Sandlake Country Inn is a place my wife and I have put in our travel book as a place to go for a getaway.
