Looking to surprise that special someone this Valentine’s Day? Consider heading to the scenic high desert town of Sunriver or Sisters for a romantic getaway. Both Central Oregon towns offer a mix of outdoor activities, rustic charm, stunning scenery, and cozy accommodations.
Here are some ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day in Sunriver or Sisters.
Enjoy a romantic dinner for two. Many local establishments offer special Valentine’s Day menus. We love The Lodge in Sunriver where you can savor dishes like dry aged beef or coho salmon over a stunning sunset, or The Open Door in Sisters where you can sip on excellent wine paired with seasonal ingredients and exceptional service. Consider making reservations in advance to secure a table.
Sunset Walk or Bike Ride
Sunriver and Sisters have beautiful trails and paths. Take a leisurely sunset walk or rent bikes to explore the area together. The serene landscape and crisp Central Oregon air can make for a romantic experience.
Spa the Day Away
Cozy Cabin Stay
Book a cozy cabin or mountain cottage for a more intimate experience. We have a great collection of cozy and charming vacation rentals with extra amenities like fireplaces and hot tubs.
If you and your partner enjoy outdoor activities, consider going on a winter adventure. Depending on the weather, you might explore snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, night tubing, or even a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
Central Oregon has a growing wine scene. Visit a local winery or wine bar for a tasting experience and pick up a bottle of great Oregon wine to enjoy back at your cozy vacation rental.
Shop and Stroll
The Village at Sunriver is the perfect place to sip, snack, and shop. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon strolling hand in hand through the cafés, shops, and restaurants. Make sure and stop by Goodys for an artisanal hot chocolate or some sweets for your sweetheart.
Candlelit Dinner at Your Vacation Rental
Create a romantic atmosphere by having a candlelit dinner at your vacation rental. Many of our properties have fully equipped kitchens where you can whip up your Valentine’s favorite dish or order from a local restaurant for a romantic meal in.
If the weather permits, take advantage of the clear Central Oregon skies for some stargazing. Bundle up and enjoy the celestial display together at Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, Dee Wright Observatory in Sisters, or gaze at the stars from your private hot tub back at your vacation rental.
Experience the beauty of the Central Oregon landscape on horseback. Some local outfitters offer guided trail rides, providing a romantic and scenic adventure.
