Travel + Leisure Magazine’s pick for lodging in the Yakima Valley is the Inn at Desert Wind, which we think is the perfect place to make memories with your significant other! Seattle Times raved about these rooms and their "over-the-top indulgence," which is no overstatement when talking about this Sante Fe inspired adobe inn.

In addition, overnight guests receive a complimentary bottle of Desert Wind wine, PLUS a wine country breakfast delivered to their door each morning! Here’s our hint! Relax at the Spa at the Inn with a Hot Stone, Swedish, or Deep Tissue Massage or even a Couples Massage! We can’t rave enough about the experience you will receive at the Inn at Desert Wind.
Looking for a unique experience in Washington Wine County? Imagine riding horseback from winery to winery, tasting fine Yakima Valley wines and then enjoying lunch on an unforgettable trail. But wait there’s more – finish your day by sleeping in a well-appointed teepee at Cherry Wood Bed, Breakfast & Barn. Here’s our hint!
