Anyone know a good company for 3-5 day Inn to Inn style tours?

Thanks again for the advice. Just got back to Seattle and the trip went flawlessly thanks to your suggestions. I followed the route mostly suggested by "Itinerant Harper"   Except I  took the Shelton Matlock road as "johnsondasw" suggested and it was indeed an empty road great for cycling. From Matlock I went down past Schafer State Park and hit Brady and from Brady to Montesano on the old HWY definitely not HWY 12. I then went down 107 but skipped the Preachers Creek Trail as it was too gnarly for my bike but only after a mile or so past the trail-head caught Blue Slough Road into Cosmopolis.  I Then followed the rest of the route  from there suggested by Itinerant Harper. The southern end of the Long Beach Peninsula is great but I wished I had an extra day to ride up to the northern end of the Peninsula and Leadbetter Point SP. 

Also there is now an 8 mile paved Bike trail at the bottom of the Long Beach Peninsula called the Discovery trail and takes you out to Cape Disappointment SP. Its a wonder. Here's the link :

 From Astoria to Portland I took 202/47 to Vernonia and then the awesome Vernonia to Banks paved bike trail through lush forests. Banks to PDX just followed google maps. Total ride was 358 miles 6 full days of riding and 5 nights.   Ed Zuckerman

Itinerant Harper: Thanks so much this is fantastic! I really appreciate it. BTW I am actually needing to end up in PDX so I will need to either add miles to the days or cut some of the time off...but this is really what I was looking for!   :)

Thanks John...I was hoping to get further west to the Coast down through Raymond and Willapa Bay and then down to Astoria. But thanks for the heads up and will follow ACA to Elma at least.

Does anyone have good current information on roads that are safe (i.e. I won't get squished by logging trucks) between Bremerton and Willapa Bay to Astoria? I am thinking about a bike/camping trip at the end of May for 3-4 nights. My bike can handle some dirt and gravel but would prefer mostly paved (and as little chip seal as possible).
Thanks in advance if you can help.
