No strangers to the art of winemaking, the Wetzel family?s roots run deep into the vineyards that surround their winery. For four generations, they have crafted award-winning wines in Germany, and for the last 35, they have called Oregon home. Chateau Bianca Winery peeks out from the Willamette Valley, where pinot noir grapes flourish across the estate vineyards. These carefully cultivated grapes eventually fill bottles with varietals such as the 2009 Chateau Bianca Estate pinot blanc, a dry, clean-finishing wine that makes a refreshing apertif.
Guests visit the tasting room to sample some of Chateau Bianca?s wines, where each day a rotating selection of six bottles are uncorked for swirling and sipping. On days when the summer sun dapples the fields and shimmers playfully off Bacchus?s lampshade hat, sippers relax on the outdoor patio to enjoy a glass or share a bottle while looking out across rows of vines.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
The Ashley Inn of Tillamook tucks into central Oregon’s lush dairy country, situated between wind-swept beaches and the coastal mountain range. More than 50 WiFi-equipped suites entertain eyes with cable TV and DVD players, and boast plush memory-foam mattresses to coddle sleeping bodies and let guests bounce on the bed without disturbing their house of cards. During the day, an indoor saltwater pool and hot tub soothes muscles weary from excursions around Tillamook's Air Museum and renowned cheese factory. Guests stock up on treats at an onsite mini mart and enjoy a complimentary, hot breakfast each morning to fuel up for daytrips to the beach at Cape Meares, roughly 10 miles away, where water explorers swim in the waves or chart a course westward to rediscover Hawaii.
Though its shop brims with stacks of specialty gifts and an extensive wine collection, Blue Heron French Cheese Company's main draw is its signature creamy brie. The cheese counter offers complimentary tastes of the signature flavors?including herb garlic and smoked?as well as other local and imported cheeses. At a wine-tasting counter, sippers linger over glasses of Oregon and Washington wines, guided by a resident wine steward that matches vintages with differing palates. At the petting farm outside, visitors get to know goats, donkeys, and emu, or nod off to sleep after counting all the resident sheep.
Though Harborview Inn & RV Park contains a fully outfitted RV park with 16 motel rooms and 30 fully equipped spaces for recreational vehicles, guests don’t spend much time indoors. Instead, they wile away the hours boating in nearby Tillamook Bay, eating s’mores at the Saturday night campfire, or catching dungeness crabs at one of two public crabbing piers.
To help crabbing expeditions go off without a hitch, the innkeepers rent crab rings and sell bait, as well as share expert crab-handling tips including ideal spots and ways to eat your catch. Hungry visitors can carry their freshly caught crabs to the onsite crab shack where they can cook them in a huge pot of boiling water.
