This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, which gives you the perfect opportunity to treat your sweetheart to a romantic getaway in snowy Sunriver, Oregon. Valentine’s Day leads into President’s Day, which means you can take advantage of a long weekend with the person you love the most. Not into Valentine’s Day? Gather together your favorite group of friends for “Galentine’s Day” and celebrate love and friendship together with a variety of winter activities.
Spend Valentine’s Day in Sunriver
Some may consider it cliche, while others revel in the peaceful rest with their loved one — sitting in front of a fireplace, snow falling outside the window, sipping a tasty Oregon pinot noir and watching a movie together. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be over the top or include grand gestures. It’s about spending quality time with the one you love and when you rent a Sunriver vacation home you can do just that. Choose a home with a hot tub and soak away your worries. Challenge your partner to a friendly game of Scrabble. Hit Mt. Bachelor to ski until your heart’s content and then enjoy a hot beverage in the lodge.
A romantic getaway in Sunriver is different to every couple and yours to create. For the music lover in your life, opt to attend the Sunriver Music Festival’s Valentine’s Dinner & Concert at Sunriver Resort’s Great Hall. The event brings Blue Skies Big Band to Sunriver to perform classic swing music from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s. Enjoy a delicious multi-course plated meal and dancing to the music of the 17-member big band.
Carson’s American Kitchen at Sunriver Resort will also be hosting a romantic five-course chocolate-themed Valentine’s dinner. They haven’t announced the menu yet, but after looking at the food served in 2019, your favorite foodie will be floored. From cherry tomatoes dipped in chocolate to butcher’s beef tenderloin with a coffee and chocolate rub, the creative concoctions of this elegant dinner are a Valentine’s Day treat.
Casual Valentine’s Day Ideas
Are you and your sweetheart more casual than luxe? Enjoy Valentine’s dinner at Sunriver Brewing and toast your love with a pint of Cocoa Cow Chocolate Milk Stout. The Brewery will no doubt have Valentine’s Day dinner specials your sweetheart will love.
