Further treats include a fully equipped exercise room, sauna and steam room, hydrotherapy pools, tanning booths, massage rooms, library, and one of the finest restaurants in the area.

A strange and wonderful stay is guaranteed at Bethabara Farms Bed and Breakfast (35909 SE 94th St., 425/888-2549, http://bethabarafarms.blogspot.com , $95 s or $125 d), also known as the House in the Trees. This eclectic structure resembles not so much an inn as a stamp mill, but don’t be fooled. The unusual design is brilliantly complemented by the comfortable rooms, the wide and flowery grounds, and the delicious country breakfast served each morning.
