Can you help me complete my itinerary?

We are arriving around 11:00 AM at PDX. We will head to McKenzie Bridge, by way of Sisters where we have a cabin reserved on the river for 3 nights. We plan to bike the non technical section of the McKenzie River Trail, go to Couger/Terwilliger hot springs, short hikes, blue lake, maybe return to Sisters if we feel we didn't have enough time on our way down, and much needed rest and relaxation doing nothing but listening to the sounds of the river.

Leave in the morning of day 4 and drive to Yachats where we will spend 1 night on the beach. Get up and drive to Neskowin where we will be staying 2 nights with my son and future daughter in law and her parents, whose beach house it is.

Later in the day we will head to Portland and have 2 days to spend seeing the city and/or day trips. Now comes the uncertain final 2 nights of our trip. We are thinking about going for 1 pr 2 overnights with my son and future daughter in law. I know we are going to Corbett to see their wedding venue. That may be as a day trip when we are in Portland or on our way off for the couple of days. We have a 12:00 PM flight the morning we leave so we can't be too far away. I would like to be somewhere quiet, non crowded, and able to take in the beauty of the area. somewhere along the gorge (but can't tell where it is busy and built up and where it is more isolated and wilderness), Mt. Hood, salmon river... just don't know. I would rather not spend hours in the car driving or in traffic. It would be great to have the time instead to bike, hike, sit by a fire and share quality time together with the kids. We don't have to go in that direction at all. Someone told me about Silver Falls State Park and how beautiful it is; maybe this would be a good place to go. If you have any suggestions at all, I would appreciate it. I am just not getting a sense of the distance and driving time and where would be the location that would give us the solitude and beauty we are seeking. Thank you very much.
