There is an abundance of romantic getaways in Western Washington. Here are three of my favorite stand-out locations: Manresa Castle Motel & Inn, The Inn at Port Hadlock and The Inn at Port Ludlow. Each one offers an exceptional setting for a romantic retreat.
Whatever your preference: staying in a cozy room at a well-appointed resort, or venturing out to explore the breath-taking views of the North Olympic port towns, there is something here for everyone seeking their personal style of a romantic getaway.
Manresa Castle Hotel & Inn
The Castle offers comfortable accommodations in a century-old castle. The restaurant, lounge, gardens and breath-taking views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, and Port Townsend Bay, make it a perfect location for a special romantic getaway.
If you want to experience the romance of the Victorian era, this is the place to go. The rooms are restored in Victorian style and the on-site Castle Key Restaurant and Lounge offers a romantic ambiance that will make you feel as if you are Victorian royalty.
The Castle offers different seasonal get-away packages and on-going specials. The most romantic one is the Castle’s “Escape to Port Townsend” package, offered Wednesday through Sunday. The rate is $269 (plus tax) per couple for one night, in a fabulous water view room. Two cocktails, dinner for two on the Prix Fixe Menu, a bottle of wine or champagne and continental breakfast for two (plus a 10 percent discount on the next stay) are included in the package. Go here to find rates and specials.

Any time of the year is a good time to stay at the Inn. They offer a special “Romance/Anniversary Package” Sunday through Thursday only: two consecutive nights in a Luxury Suite, with Jacuzzi, for $299 (taxes not included).
