For more than 20 years, the Seattle resident has focused on travel to Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, and northern California, building a network of plugged-in insiders throughout the region who keep her up to date on new restaurants, activities, and—as there aren’t a lot of quality hotels outside of the major cities—updated inns and vacation rentals. Her detailed, 20-plus-page itineraries include activities like private kayaking trips along Oregon’s Alsea River and exclusive vacation rentals in the San Juan Islands.
New favorite: After a $6 million renovation and rebranding, Portland’s historic Governor Hotel is now Sentinel, where the updated rooms include wing chairs and custom art. A butler will deliver pints of the city’s famous Salt & Straw ice cream upon request.
