Where to Pop the Question in Oregon

Here at the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild, we surveyed our innkeepers for their favorite location to “pop the question” in Oregon.  Here’s our first installment in time for Valentine’s Day.  What could be better than bringing your newly betrothed home to a cozy bed and breakfast after a romantic proposal?

Lost Lake, a pristine Mt Hood National Forest Lake, is the pick for the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast in Parkdale, Oregon.   Here’s what they have to say:

“One of the most romantic spots in Oregon to “pop the question” would have to be Lost Lake. With majestic Mt. Hood as a backdrop one might propose sitting on its shores or at any of the many scenic spots while walking the Lakeshore trail.  While it might be a little tough to get down on one knee in a canoe the ambiance experienced while sitting on its glimmerglass waters is so very romantic!

“The Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast is only 20 miles from Lost Lake and I have had the opportunity to be a part of two surprise proposals that took place at this romantic and incredibly beautiful part of Oregon. I anxiously awaited the return of our guests, knowing what was to take place, and see their exhilarated faces full of hope and love, and a ring!”

It’s cold along the river, Dress accordingly and be prepared for possible snow on the trails that take you down for a closer look at the convocation of Eagles on the water’s edge.

Plan to spend a day in The Dalles.  The Columbia Gorge Discovery center offers the inspiring Raptor Program, Downtown you’ll find great restaurants, brew pubs, shopping, wineries and of course, the Bald Eagles along the River.

Welcome to Oregon’s Willamette Valley, probably most famous for its wines with hazelnuts, hops, mint, and Christmas trees. The Willamette Valley may be the most diverse agricultural region in the world, and an endless series of roadside stands gives visitors the chance to sample this diversity of tastes and flavors.

Sports enthusiasts can choose among kayaking, river rafting, biking, skiing, snowboarding and even llama trekking. For covered bridge fans, the valley is a special find with more than three dozen bridges located within the region.

In the Willamette Valley you can spend your entire day doing nothing. Relax on a comfortable front porch at one of 17 bed and breakfasts or in their gardens.

Or should you choose to do everything pair your exploration of Oregon’s wine country with a stay and combine uniquely styled accommodations that are close to the valley’s many events and attractions, many of which go far beyond award-winning wine.
