Woodland, a small town close to the Oregon border in southern Washington, welcomes visitors seeking outdoor pursuits such as fishing in the Lewis River and visiting nearby Mount St. Helens. There are only a handful of lodging options in Woodland itself, primarily small inns and bed and breakfasts rather than hotels. Accommodations can also be found in nearby towns such as St. Helens, Oregon.

Lewis River Inn

Lewis River Inn, which is scenically situated alongside the Lewis River, offers a choice of four room categories: regular rooms; newly remodeled and upgraded rooms; riverside rooms with a furnished balcony overlooking the river; and the Burma Room, which has decor inspired by the inn owner's Burmese travels, including photographs and books on display. All the rooms offer some high-end features including Sealy Posturpedic beds, high-thread count linens and granite counters. Room rates include a daily breakfast.

Woodland Cedars Inn Express

Woodland Cedars Inn Express offers 60 guest rooms, all with a refrigerator and work desk. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available. Guests have access to a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub and fitness room. A daily breakfast buffet is complimentary and includes homemade waffles, donuts and cereals as well as tea, coffee and fruit juices. There are numerous shops and restaurants close to the inn, including a supermarket, coffee shops, antique stores, and an Italian pizza and ice cream parlor.

Lewis River Bed and Breakfast

Lewis River Bed and Breakfast sits alongside the Lewis River and features a 60-foot wooden riverside deck with shaded seating for taking in the views. Guests are invited to an evening happy hour in the common area, which has a piano and a fireplace for a cozy atmosphere. The bed and breakfast offers five guest rooms. Common features include bathrobes and high-speed Internet access, but each room is distinctive in decor and theme. The Chinook Retreat room features a bay window with river views, pine furnishings, and a fish theme exemplified in a whimsical patchwork quilt and angling paraphernalia displayed on the walls. The Riverside Suite opens onto the deck, offers river views and features a jetted bathtub. The Victorian Retreat room has classic pine furnishings and chintzy flowered accents; the Oceanside Retreat offers a dark wood sleigh bed and partial river views. A rustic, countryside theme is showcased in the Montana Retreat room's patchwork accent pillows and carved four-poster bed.

Guests are accommodated in a 1,700-square-foot, two-bedroom suite featuring a full kitchen, a breakfast nook, a formal dining room and a cozy living room with a fireplace. The suite boasts a whirlpool bathtub and a sun room that opens out onto a private wrap-around deck overlooking a koi pond and Zen garden.Luxury touches include champagne and chocolates upon arrival, plush bathrobes and slippers, and the option to arrange spa treatments in a dedicated room in the suite or a curtained, heated section of the deck. Personal chef services are available upon request.
