French Country Inn and Cooking School amid Wine Country

Woodinville wine country is only a half-hour drive from the brewpubs and art galleries of downtown Seattle, but the two areas couldn't be more different. Rolling orchards, wooded hills, and replica chateaus make Woodinville feel more like the Loire Valley than a metropolitan suburb. This is where you'll find award winning French Country Inn L'Auberge at The Edge of Seattle Inn. The 5-acre property is secluded amid towering pines and banks of lavender.

The cooking school operates out of an open-plan kitchen with a wraparound chopping block. With this Getaway, you get to take one class on classic French fare, which runs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Up to 12 students learn to craft a three-course meal that might center on mushroom crepes, leek-stuffed salmon, or chicken cordon bleu as well as desserts such as crème brûlée or chocolate mousse. For the dinner that follows, each person is allowed to bring one bottle of wine.

The attached bed and breakfast shows a similar indebtedness to French culture—the rooms feature antique French furnishings and country-floral prints. But there's also a general homey feel to the place. There are extra pajamas in the dresser and spare toothbrushes in the bathroom. The studio suite comes with a book collection and decorative china, and the Honeymoon suite boasts a wood-burning fireplace, a private veranda, and an elegant vanity set. Every morning, there's a continental breakfast spread that includes french pastries and house-made jam; if you want to upgrade, the gourmet breakfast (included in the Honeymoon option) serves parsley potatoes and belgian waffles with strawberries and cream.

Woodinville Valley, Washington: Wineries and Breweries Minutes from Seattle

Located about 25 miles northeast of Seattle, the Woodinville Valley features dozens of boutique wineries. One of the oldest, Chateau Ste. Michelle, also hosts a concert series every summer; this year's performers include the Steve Miller Band and Counting Crows with special guests The Wallflowers. Wine-tasting tours are understandably popular here, but it's also worth looking into the region's microbreweries, which supply many of the craft IPAs that are a hit among Seattleites.

Outside the realm of grapevines, there are some lovely parks in the area. Along the banks of Lake Washington, the 316-acre Saint Edward State Park shelters bald eagles and otters. Marymoor Park borders Lake Sammamish and has its own velodrome, an angled racetrack that was built for bicyclists and to prop up coffee tables with missing legs.
