Here, you'll read about some interesting places that Hideaways staff and "ambassadors" have experienced in their wanderings through the American
West. These may not always fit the profile for lodgings in The Hideaways Collection®, but they certainly are worth knowing about,
and we think you'll enjoy the insight.

Drive about 160 miles southeast from Seattle as we did, and enter another world. No traffic, no noise, just wide-open vistas of rolling hills and a river
cutting through basalt cliffs. Snake your way along a paved country road, passing orchards and vineyards, and there, with its unique structures bending
toward the mighty Columbia River, is the wonderful Cave B Inn. We've known the owners, Carol and Vince Bryan, for years. Vince is a
neurosurgeon from Seattle, and he and Carol came to the Columbia Basin of Washington in the 1980s to plant vineyards and establish a winery. Their original
label was Champs d'Brionne—later changed to Cave B. The Inn is an absolute treat, snugged in among the vineyards and surrounded by high-desert sagebrush
and those magnificent cliffs (sunsets here can be spectacular). We've stayed in both the Cliffehouses—spacious and well-equipped stand-alone units with
great views—and the Desert Yurts (with two of our grandsons), memorable and fun accommodations in a more rustic setting. The croaking frogs made getting
to sleep a little difficult, but they were a pleasant reminder that we were in the middle of nature.
