10 Romantic Getaways in Washington State
1 – Posthotel
When a hotel is adults-only and has a European spa, you know you’ll be in for a relaxing and romantic getaway, and such is the case with Posthotel in Leavenworth. Located along the Wenatchee River, in the heart of this much-loved Bavarian-themed small town, the hotel sets the stage to reconnect with your amour. Rooms are simple, yet elegant, and almost all come with a cozy fireplace, hand-carved marble soaking, and a private balcony or patio. I suggest reserving the balcony or terrace rooms with mountain views.
In the morning, enjoy a complimentary savory European breakfast buffet with eggs prepared to order, German sausages, potatoes, bread, cheeses, and fruits. In the afternoon, after you’ve soaked in the pool or taken a nap in one of the napping rooms, is another complimentary meal of soup and salad.
Being spa-centric, this escape is perfect for couples who prefer pampering and even if you don’t opt for a spa service the Wellness Area features a saltwater hydrotherapy pool, steam bath, sauna, cool plunge pools, and the Kneipp Stepping Pools, and lounge beds. If you do want to get outdoors there are on-site are bike, snowshoe and cross-country ski rentals.
2 – Silver Cloud Inn Mukilteo
Indulge in your passion for kissable moments with water views at the Silver Cloud Inn Mukilteo. Located on the water, and sometimes over it, the 70-room boutique hotel in Mukilteo is known for its water view rooms and Jacuzzi suites with panoramic views of Possession Sound, colorful sunsets, and ferry views. Well-appointed rooms come with Aveda bath products, and guests receive a complimentary hot breakfast buffet. Lovers will like the Escape to Mukilteo package with Rosehill Chocolates, a welcome gift, champagne with keepsake flutes and a complimentary breakfast.
If you find yourself in need of sustenance during your romantic vacation, Diamond Knot Brewery & Alehouse is a short walk from the hotel. If you are looking for upscale dining with fabulous cocktails and food, I recommend John’s Grill, which is a short walk up the hill or ride in the hotel’s shuttle. Afterward, stroll along the beach at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park for that picture-perfect romantic moment at sunset.

Set amongst rolling grassy dunes on the beach, rooms have an amazing ocean view.

7 – Alexander’s Castle
Lovers are sure to fall for one of the most unique stays in Washington State – Alexander’s Castle in Port Townsend. Built in 1882 in what is now Fort Worden by Reverend John Alexander for his wife-to-be, it can really be called a “castle built for love.” Sweethearts staying at the castle will have it all to themselves to romp around in the apartment-style castle furnished with a kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathroom with a claw foot tub. In the tower, the bedroom awaits with plush pillows and views of Admiralty Inlet.
Heartthrobs who are suckers for romantic movies can explore scene locations for An Officer and a Gentleman which are steps away from the castle door. My favorite spot in Port Townsend for and internationally-inspired dinner is Fountain Cafe and for Pacific Northwest fare the Silverwater Cafe. Lovers looking for a pleasurable night on the town can catch a movie and dinner at the historic Rose Theater in the Starlight Lounge. For light fare, drinks, and an unusual setting, Taps at the Guardhouse is a short walk from the castle. Then, in the evening, drive or walk down to Point Wilson Lighthouse and kiss under the stars.
