Bicycle Adventures Shares Romantic Shortlist in Honor of Valentine's Day
Bring on the cycling romantics! ?Bicycle Adventures, a Pacific Northwest-based active travel company specializing in two-wheel tours in North America, Hawaii (the Big Island) and internationally, helps keep the love light glowing, even after Valentine's Day has come and gone.
In honor of Feb. 14, this company has shared its short list of what its staff consider are the most romantic lodges guests can enjoy on a Bicycle Adventures vacation.
"Most of our cycling vacationers are couples seeking a mix of road miles through gorgeous scenery, good food, wine and, ideally, romantic accommodations," said Todd Starnes, Bicycle Adventures' Owner and President. "In other words, day-by-day, minute-to-minute quality of life counts."
"Whether you opt for an active week exploring the countryside with Bicycle Adventures (http://bicycleadventures.com/) or you seek a cozy weekend retreat on your own, here's a list of our very favorite inns and lodges where romance reigns."
Two San Juan Islands resorts were featured by Fox news in its "10 Romantic Getaways in Washington State". Bicycle Adventures uses both on three different itineraries. Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes is located between Roche Harbor and Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands. Here guests enjoy the experience of lakeside views from the property's lodge. Outlook Inn offers an experience of Orcas Island culture including watching the rising and falling tides. The following trips utilize these classics: San Juan Islands 4 Day, San Juan Islands 6 Day and San Juan Islands & Victoria.
At Moraine Lake Lodge on Moraine Lake in the Rocky Mountains, a naturalist guide tempts guests to hike if he/she can get the guests up from the Adirondack chairs they've settled into with a glass of wine to toast the glaciers. Luxury Travel Magazine hailed it as 'the ultimate romantic getaway' and Bicycle Adventures' guests rave about it in trip reviews of the following trips: Banff-Jasper 6 Day and Glacier-Banff-Jasper (8 days).
Casa de San Pedro in southern Arizona is said to be "The Most Romantic Inn in Arizona" from its perch on 10 acres adjacent to the San Pedro River and Riparian National Conservation Area. Over 355 species of birds and hundreds of butterflies call this place home. Adobe, cacti and the history of the Old West make this a place to be remembered on Bicycle Adventure's Cactus Classic.
"The Most Romantic Getaway" in Central Oregon (according to Bend Living) is Five Pine Lodge. This was also named one of the top five hotels in the US by TripAdvisor in 2014. Surrounded by the Three Sisters and a thriving craft brew culture, there's plenty of added value on Bicycle Adventure's Bend Breakaway.
