The Gift of Travel: 2021 Holiday Gift Guide

We’ve all spent more time at home over the last (almost) two years than any of us probably ever have wanted. What better way to bring in the New Year than with the gift of travel? 

walla walla hotel

The Finch

The Finch: Send your loved one to Walla Walla, specifically to The Finch! This is our go-to hotel every time we are in the area for a reason. With updated, modern rooms featuring art from local artists and a location downtown within walking distance of fabulous restaurants and tasting rooms, it doesn’t get better than this! 

Make sure to check their website regularly to find out about upcoming bundles and specials! 

camper van

Peace Vans

Peace Vans: Do you know someone who wants to get a taste of van life? Peace Vans is where you need to book! With vans of varying lengths and sleeping arrangements, think of this as an adventure on the road. This is also a great gift for someone who works remotely, and wants to see more of the PNW while doing it! 

Make sure to check out our podcast episode with Harley Stiner, owner of Peace Vans, to find out more about their rentals, restorations and van conversions! 

Hyatt Lake Washington

Hyatt Lake Washington

Hyatt Lake Washington: Spa, pool, waterfront views, and delicious food? That’s where you’ll find me: at the Hyatt Lake Washington! It’s been open for four years now, and recently was an AAA Four Diamond Award Winner (that’s a pretty big deal for those scratching their heads!)


“Hyatt Regency Lake Washington perfectly combines the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, the landscape of Lake Washington, inspired food and drinks and a high degree of hospitality to ensure the finest stay for all guests.“

Timber Creek Cabin

Alright, so hotels and van life aren’t for you (or your recipient) but you’d still like to book a night or two away? We’ve got you covered. Let us introduce you to Timber Creek Cabin.

Located about 25 minutes away from Stevens Pass, this cabin tucked away in the woods is wonderful year-round. With easy access to the ski slopes and Leavenworth in the winter, and fishing in the river during the summer – this 3-acre getaway will make you fall in love. 

“Modern and rustic style, with the comfort and charm of walking into your grandparents’ home. Perfect for families or couples in all seasons, with plenty to enjoy indoors, and explore outdoors, this truly is a magical spot on the river.”
