Finding inspiration at the House on Metolius
Lodge escape: One of our favorite Camp Sherman retreats, House on Metolius, has put together an unbelievable deal with its River Wisdom Package: $99 gets you a night in one of the seven main lodge rooms, a three-course meal with wine pairings, breakfast, a journal, and—in case the stunning Central Oregon landscape outside your window doesn't inspire you—you'll have your own iPad loaded with "inspirational" reading. Available April 4 through May 25, price is per person; use promo code RW2013. Book it: metolius.com

Get some sun: Virgin Atlantic's 72-hour sale doles out flights to San Francisco and LA from Portland for $69 and $79 each way. The fine print: travel must occur between April 6 and June 12; the fares mostly apply to travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays; and there's limited availability, so be quick; sale ends Thursday. Book it: virginamerica.com
