Amazing Getaways

As Featured On


With Wende Meister

Amazing Getaways is your home-base for
Fun Day Trips, Outdoor Adventures and Great Escapes of every kind including Golf Retreats, Fishing Charters and helpful Travel Tips. Our purpose at Amazing Getaways is to lead you to some of the best accommodations and attractions the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Your guide here is Northwest travel author and radio personality, Wende Meister - known as the voice of "The Seattle Scout" from 1990 - 1998 on Seattle's ABC affiliate KOMO Talk AM 1000. Many of the inns, resorts and great escapes you'll find on our website were featured during Wende's weekday reports or her national travel show for the station called "JUSTGO" which aired Saturday mornings. Currently Wende hosts a weekly syndicated show called WEEKENDS AROUND THE NORTHWEST which is heard through out the state of Washington.

Through exposure on our website and weekly radio show, many of these getaways have already been discovered and featured on popular Northwest television shows and publications - including KING 5's Evening Magazine during a special annual edition of Great Escapes. Several of the golf courses listed on our section
Northwest Golf Gallery were featured in the annual Northwest Golf Guide Wende wrote for Seattle Magazine.

Our Recommendations


We're proud to say our recommendations are backed by over 20 years travel experience in the Pacific Northwest. During this time we have explored thousands of getaways in and around Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia. You might even say we wrote the book on the subject. Many of the romantic getaways have been featured in Wende's Northwest travel book series, Sweethearts' Getaway Guide of the Northwest.

Are You An Innkeeper?


So you say you have that perfect Northwest getaway? Maybe it's a cozy place on the water with a view, where sweethearts can cuddle in front of the fire, or take a stroll on the beach in the moonlight. Then again, you might have that special place where lovebirds can just hide from the world, nibble on chocolates, and sip champagne while relaxing in their very own private hot tub or Jacuzzi for two.
