Romantic Oregon Coast & Allergy Friendly Getaway
Parenting is HARD and staying a couple is important!! It can be so easy to get wrapped up in kids and forget that the reason you even have kids is because you fell in love with your spouse and you enjoy spending time together. We definitely have more conflict when we haven't had quality time together. It helps that we have several people in our lives that believe just as strongly in us staying a happy couple as they do in us raising amazing happy little girls. So, yes we left both kids overnight, for about 48 hours with the grandparents, our 3 year old and 9 month old. I pumped (because yes I'm still breastfeeding Alana a lot) to make this happen, but it was worth it, we felt so refreshed!!
Now onto the important info, everything you need for a romantic getaway with allergy-friendly eating options nearby!!
We have been to this Inn two times now, last year for my birthday/babymoon and then this year for our 10 year anniversary and it does not disappoint!! We are pretty laid back for our time away without kids, we mostly enjoy chatting and drinking some wine together, but we do have some criteria for going to the Oregon coast.
If we are going to spend money on going to the coast. The weather is so unpredictable, it might be gorgeous and sunny or it might be grey and rainy (much more likely to be the later).
If we are going to go to the coast…
We MUST have a ocean view room, I don’t come to the coast to not see the ocean, and if the weather is bad, having a view from the room is worth the money!
When it’s just hubby and I, getting away for a romantic retreat without the kids, a private jacuzzi tub is the best!! And I say jacuzzi tub over hot tub because when I was pregnant, I really missed hot tubs, since you can’t when you’re pregnant, but you can do a jacuzzi tub because it isn’t a constantly hot temperature and you can make it cooler.
Another budget friendly travel tip is to find a hotel that offers a continental breakfast! That saves money on eating out, you might pay a bit more for the hotel but it’s worth it to have breakfast available in-house, also because parents getting away without kids definitely calls for sleeping in!! And Channel House did an exceptional job accommodating my allergens, they served fresh fruit, gluten-free Bob’s Red Mill oatmeal cups, plenty of coffee and went out of their way to find almond milk for me. There were also a few other items out, but the things mentioned kept me quite happy!
This hotel is kid-free, which means for a quiet night and quality sleep.
Channel House is also walking distance from an awesome restaurant that was able to accommodate my allergens in the form of fish and chips!! So don’t worry you can still enjoy your wine, then take a leisurely walk to the Bay Walk Cafe and get some allergy-friendly food.
