I’ve found a dozen good deals to be had for a fraction of the cost of high season rates – all at high end places within a few hours drive of Seattle. Today I tell you all about them in an article I wrote for the Seattle Times Travel Section.
|Some resorts provide rain gear - be sure to ask when making a reservation!|
You recall we visited Tofino on Vancouver Island’s west coast in September and paid just under $300 a night at the Best Western. . .the deal I found for The Times at the luxury resort just down the road (a perfect place to do some winter storm watching) is amazing in comparison.
|We spent a few hours gazing at Saratoga Passage from our deck on The Scout's birthday trip|
You may also recall me telling you about the road trip we took for The Scout’s February birthday last year when we ended up at a luxury resort on Whidbey Island, an hour’s drive/ferry ride north of Seattle. Well, they’ve got the same great deals this year for mid-week stays.
|The Inner Harbour - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada|
I didn’t overlook those fabulous city getaways or ways to find other deals there – I’ve included deals in resorts from Victoria, B.C. to Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Bellevue and Tacoma as well.

Now that I’ve sparked the travel bug in you, head over to the Seattle Times to see which resorts and hotels are featured. (And please note: there are plenty more deals to be had out there, but there was a limit to the number of words in print.)
