Thanks to those who have given us great advice about the Oregon Coast. Now we are planning our way back north towards Washington from Ashland and are looking for 3 nights in the general area of Portland. One day to explore The Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood and the other to relax and wander around and take in some of the beauty and history of the area.
We came across the Mattey House B&B which looks very nice but we were just a little worried that it might too long a day trip from there to The Gorge and that the area itself might be a little too much like The Napa.
If it helps our next overnight will be on The Olympic Peninsula, possibly Port Townsend.
Many thanks in advance.
