Babymoon in the Seattle Area

We're looking to do a 1-2 night getaway within 2-3 hours of Seattle. Criteria follows!

Our daughter is nearly two and I'm expecting again, and my husband and I have yet to spend a night away since the first was born. We want to remedy that! I'm looking for something that will be reliably sunny during the reliably sunny part of Seattle summer, with a nice outdoor pool, decent food options nearby and with some outdoor activities available (light hiking, kayaking, river floating, etc). It needs to be within a 2-3 hour drive of Seattle and not a place I should have booked a year ago if I'd like to go between now and early September. Bonus if there's a good spa on site, points deducted if it's a totally brewery/winery/distillery centric place (i.e. Cave B, Woodinville, etc). Does not need to be kid friendly, our toddler will stay home with grandparents.

It's probably more like 3.5 hours from Seattle, but I'd go to Skamania. It's a gorgeous setting in the Columbia River Gorge, with multiple outdoor activities nearby. There's a zipline onsite, and they have tree houses if that interests you.

Victoria, BC meets all of those needs.

Leavenworth has all those things.

Suncadia would fit the bill. It's not the way to get a good rate, but I've booked things last minute there.
