The Venue: Historic Edgefield, built in 1911 as the county poor farm, is a destination resort in the Pacific Northwest. The stately main building, with over 100 guestrooms and hostel accommodations, is furnished in turn-of-the-century decor. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms, encouraging tranquility, as surely as do the rocking chairs on the verandas. Complimentary wi-fi is offered around the Black Rabbit Restaurant, the library and in many of the event spaces. Plan to soak in the fantastic hot pools available for overnight hotel guests. Bring a swimsuit and towel; robes provided for those staying at McMenamins.
