Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins is Your Vacation Destination

The Basics for a Romantic Anniversary

Any romantic getaway will share the same basics. First, make sure you book your stay at Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins. Imagine yourself with your sweetheart sitting in front of the fire of your own private cabin. We like to think that our cabins give couples a glamping experience; you get the beauty of the outdoors without giving up any luxuries of an incredible vacation. With custom-made log beds, in-cabin whirlpool tubs, and nine acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, there’s no place better than Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins.

An anniversary getaway would not be complete without taking your stay to the next level by ordering our Romantic Rendezvous Package. Nothing sets the mood like walking into your private cabin to see a bouquet of roses and a bottle of champagne waiting for you. Add an in-cabin massage to complete your vacation.

For the Adventurous Couple

The Pacific Northwest is known for its gorgeous landscapes and outdoor activities. If you and your other half are the adventurous types, you can spend day after day exploring. Some of the best hikes in the Columbia River Gorge are found just moments away from our property. Head to Panther Creek Falls for an easy yet satisfying excursion. The parking lot is just 20 minutes away from Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins, and the 130-foot waterfall is awe-inspiring.

If you want to spend the entire day exploring, we recommend tackling the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Here, you’ll find countless miles of trails, mysterious caves, stunning waterfalls, and even an active volcano.

For the Wine Aficionado Couple

Located just above California’s famous wine-growing region, the Pacific Northwest also has prime wine producing conditions. Let your anniversary ideas in Washington State revolve around our local wine.

There are plenty of Columbia River Gorge wineries for you to enjoy, and each one offers something different than the last. You should definitely have the Jacob Williams Winery on your list. The tasting room overlooks the Columbia River and rolling fields of grapes as Mount Hood looms in the distance.

Of course, you can always get local wine right in your private cabin since we sell it onsite!

For the Couple Looking for Something Unique

As locals in the area, we know countless unique experiences in Washington State. From huckleberry picking to hot springs that date back to the 1930s, we have unique activities for any taste.

One of our favorite activities unique to the area is easy for all couples to access, and it is very romantic. We are very lucky that our area has minimal light pollution. This means that there is no light blocking the beauty of the night sky. The stars here are more vibrant than most other places in the United States, so when you look up, you’ll see the sky full of them on a clear night. Head to the Goldendale Observatory State Park to use their public telescopes and get all your astronomy questions answered or opt to stargaze on your own on our property.

For the Foodie Couple

As foodies, we understand that the perfect date often revolves around food. Spend your anniversary getaway indulging in all of the best restaurants in our area. We have Backwoods Brewing Company right across the street, and Hood River has many other great eateries. Our neighboring town, Stevenson, also has some great restaurants to check out.

For the Artsy Couple

Get inspired when you stay at Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins. There’s something about fresh mountain air that has sparked creativity in many. Let the stunning colors of wildflowers influence you in the spring or gather some inspiration from the softly falling snow in the winter.

To see art, head somewhere like the Columbia Center for the Arts. This cultural center showcases some of the best artists of the area. When you visit, you can attend a play, browse the Columbia Art Gallery, and even take a class.

For the Couple Who’d Say, “I’d Do It All Over Again With You”

Whether you’re celebrating your first or 50th, if you’d say, “I’d do it all again in an instant,” renewing your vows may be for you.

Renewing your wedding vows is a heart-felt way to celebrate an anniversary and strengthen the marital bonds that sweeten your life together. You get to revisit what is uniquely yours with your partner.

Repeat the vows you exchanged the first time or update them with all the loving experience that you’ve gathered through the years.

Climb to a mountain top and exchange vows on your own, or celebrate the moment in a small wedding vow renewal ceremony we offer here at the Cabins.

However you renew your vows, this celebration belongs to you.

For the Thrill Seeking Couple

Your anniversary getaway should be all about making memories, and what better way is there to make memories than to seek some thrills? If you and your sweetheart love an adrenaline rush, you came to the right place. Fly through the air at Zipline Skamania– they have ziplines that range anywhere from 100-900 feet. In the summer, windsurfing or kayaking also make excellent options. There are multiple rental companies in the Gorge, and you can get lessons if you are a first-timer. Imagine feeling the wind whip by you as fresh, crisp water splashes past!
