Couples getaways: Great places for special retreat
By CARY ORDWAY
There are lots of couples out there 1who just can't wait for school to get started again. That's because many lodgings have more flexibility when the kids are back in school -- it's just not as crowded and is a great time to take that special couples getaway.

In this article we look at a number of special getaways that are ideally suited to couples. Some of these places are fine for kids, too, but they all are very special for those special times when you want to be with your Significant Other.

Destiny Ridge Vineyard and Alexandria Nicole Cellars offer glamping -- in other words, glamorous camping. They have what they call Tiny House glamping. These 400-square-foot houses are in the middle of the vineyard situated all by themselves. They each have great views, a deck and even wine on tap depending on which house you rent.

They're quite simply appointed -- a mini-fridge, a gas stove, a few amenities such as a French press for your morning coffee. The object here is to enjoy a quiet respite with your significant other in surroundings that are beautiful and quite romantic.

The tiny houses are located in Paterson, Washington, near the Columbia Gorge. For more info phone (509) 786-3497 or visit www.anctinyhouses.com.

If quiet seclusion is what you're looking for, a great option is to plan a trip to Stehekin in North Central Washington. Stehekin is a tiny village at the northwest end of 55-mile-long Lake Chelan. It's a mecca for people who love the outdoors.

You get there by boat or floatplane -- there are no roads to Stehekin, although there are some roads the locals use in and around the area. You can cruise to Stehekin by boarding the Lady of the Lake in Chelan. A few hours later you'll be in the heart of the North Cascades.
