Hubby didn’t have to go to work last Thursday and Friday so we decided to head towards Washington to have a little fun. He found a perfect place just about an hour from where we live in Oregon; a little piece of paradise in the middle of nowhere Mossyrock, Washington. So, we booked two nights through Airbnb and it was the absolute perfect summer getaway.
This wasn’t planned at all, it was pretty spontaneous as our lives usually are (even though I love and I’m great at planning.)
We had an amazing two nights/days. It was like the honeymoon that we never had. We had amazing views, perfect weather, private sauna, hot tub, bikes, wine, Mexican food, friendly dogs, gardens, lakes, fireworks, movies, world cup…
We stayed at the Adytum Sanctuary on top of a hill. The owners live in the main house and we had our own suite and yard around and below them.
We made friends with owners’ dog.
We took the complimentary bikes for a ride
We rode the bikes to a Mexican food place in the tiny town about 4 miles away
On our way back we took more pictures

And then we enjoyed the sunset after enjoying the infrared sauna.
The next day…
We had American fare at the viking cafe, you know, chili dogs and milkshakes.
Yeah, there’s nothing in Mossyrock.
We hung out at the nearby marina
We couldn’t afford to rent any kind of boat because of deposits, but we still had a pleasant time seeing all the people get in their boats for a 4th of July celebration. So, we simply sat on the dock, people-watched and enjoyed some sun.
And we took a pleasant walk in a hidden garden
There was no one there, it was so peaceful.
At night, we watched Roman Holiday
And the next morning we watched some football, I mean soccer
It was the World Cup after all.
We had a meal al fresco
We saw the 4th of July fireworks from a distance from our peaceful retreat.
It was really two perfect days with my hubby. Though there’s nothing in this town, this place is the perfect relaxing getaway.
