My husband and I stayed at the Feller House for one night, May 12, after having lunch at Amy’s and a full day exploring Aurora’s antique shops in this small town. We had the lovely Garden Room which overlooks the back garden and surrounding tree farms.
I am grateful to all the other Trip Advisor reviewers who recommended this B & B. I admit that I was a little hesitant at first to book the Feller House when I saw that it is actually located about 4 miles west and a 13 minutes drive from Aurora’s Main Street area on Google Map. Please note: We are retired urbanites from Honolulu, HI and live just a 5 minutes drive from Waikiki and major shopping malls, restaurants, markets, etc. This was also our very first trip to Oregon so we were not fully prepared for the lo-ong driving distances : ) My husband got a little anxious and asked how far we were going to get there as we started to drive through the tree farms. We even missed the driveway although there was a nice big sign ‘FELLER HOUSE Bed & Breakfast’ posted right on the fence, and we were using a GPS device. But once we got there, Barb came out to warmly greet us right away and invited us in to show us around then take us up to our room. She told us that we were the only guests that night so to make ourselves at home because we had the whole place to ourselves. Needless to say, we found the Garden Room spacious and comfortable…plus no need to lock the door with no one else there.
We asked Barb to recommend a restaurant for dinner that night, and she described two restaurants in nearby Canby that she and Arnie had dined at. We decided on Grand Central Station and had very nice meals at reasonable prices—I had the delicious pot roast served with mashed potatoes and cooked veggies, a house special.
The next morning Barb and Arnie greeted us at 8:30 in the dining-kitchen area for breakfast. We were invited to help ourselves to coffee and started breakfast with a fresh cup of fruit. Barb had asked us the night before if we liked asparagus because she had some ready in her garden, and we said, ‘Yes, of course.’ So she served us a delectable asparagus and potato frittata along with her scrumptious fresh baked scones served with lemon curd. My husband whispered to me, “I hope she offers us a few scones to take with us.” I think Arnie loves those scones too because we didn’t get any ‘leftovers.’
We had planned to leave the B & B around 9:30 to head to our next destination Hood River, but our breakfast conversation with Barb and Arnie got so interesting that we got up to fill our coffee cups and sat back down to ‘talk story’ until 10:30.
If you are looking for a home away-from-home rather than just a bed in a room to sleep in, then I highly recommend Barb’s and Arnie’s Feller House B & B. (Note: We stayed in seven different B & Bs and just two inn/hotels over 19 days of travel--driving from Seattle, WA to OR.)
