If you are looking for a Pacific Northwest getaway for a day or two I think you need to put The Oregon Garden Resort on your list of places to visit. It’s in Silverton, a 30 minutes drive off I-5 northeast of Salem, Oregon. It’s also about a 30 minute drive to the Woodburn Outlet Mall if you need a little retail therapy. It’s a quiet rural area with beautiful views and one of the most relaxing places to hang out. The Oregon Garden Resort is located in the garden and you receive free entry and a free tram garden tour which is about 30 minutes and it is amazing.
I only had an overnight at the resort but I have to say that the staff was friendly and always helpful. I did get a nice dip in the pool before my dinner which was refreshing after a long day in the car. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and quiet. I did love the patio for just sitting and having a glass of wine before dinner. The best part was that you could just walk into the beautiful gardens. I’d love a return visit for a few days to just enjoy the area and relax a bit more.
