Ain't no mountain high enough to keep us from today’s ultimate escape: a one-night weekday ($185) or two-night weekend ($370) stay for two in a deluxe studio king room at the lavish Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, just an hour outside of Seattle.

Perched atop Washington's Cascade Mountains, this palatial hotel and condo resort offers a premium getaway like none other you've experienced.

Tucked away in acres of lush forestry, we heard it through the grapevine that The Lodge at Suncadia features luxurious guestrooms, all furnished with a deep soaking tub, flagstone gas fireplace and LCD television.

The resort-style kitchen comes fully equipped with granite countertops, silverware and a stovetop. You'll hardly want to leave your room - although you should, because there's countless miles of awe-inspiring terrain to explore.

You'll never have to wonder "what's goin' on?" after wandering through the area in the summertime and hiking or biking through miles and miles of the beautiful Wenatchee and Teanaway National Forests. Rent a boat for a day and catch a few trout, or challenge yourself with a white-water rafting expedition.

A visit during the colder months means a whole different set of electrifying activities, including snowmobiling, ice skating, and cross-country skiing along a backdrop of majestic peaks that have TripAdvisees calling the resort "very magical" and "heaven on earth".

Included in this package is 20% off a gourmet breakfast for two at Portals (or room service dining), plus free valet parking for one vehicle. Play an invigorating 18 holes on the sun-kissed fairways of Prospector, the mountain-top range (one of two spectacular courses on the grounds). Then, use your $50 credit toward a pampering treatment at Glade Spring Spa. Soak in one of four outdoor mineral baths, enjoy a sweet milk and lavender facial, or melt away your worries in the eucalyptus-infused steam room.

Just the guys? Skip the spa and both of you can hit the links. Girls' weekend? Trade in the 9-iron for two $50 Glade Spring credits and make it a spa day. Just hurry up and plant your flag upon this sumptuous Escape - 'cause there ain't nothing like the real thing, baby.
