Menucha Retreat Center, Corbett, Oregon
Although it’s just 30 minutes from downtown Portland or the airport, Menucha feels like a world away. Its natural beauty, rich history and sincere hospitality inspired one write to describe it this way: “Past the stone entry, a forest embraces the travelers along a serpentine road. The destination: a one hundred acre sanctuary in the Columbia River Gorge. Seven hundred feet above one of the nation’s epic rivers, this is a place where bald eagles floor their shadows across old growth conifers; where trails may lead to heirloom gardens or perennial springs.

1. Shared room:
Each room has a queen size bed, two twin beds and a private bathroom.
