The beauty of the setting is beyond compare. It compares to being in Tuscany. Seeing the sunrise and set from our room, the master suite, was without doubt the highlight of our week long trip. The suns reflection off the vines was spectacular. We approached this trip not knowing what to expect and were impressed by the sweeping views, the privacy of the stay, and the wonderful walks thru the vines. We were there just after harvest and the vines had all turned golden and made the entire hillside picturesque. The Inn has nine bedroom/suites which each has a distinct personality. Our room was the largest with the best views and huge bath. Many of the other rooms had more romantic furnishings. Breakfasts were served by reservation in the dining room to accomodate each guests needs. Everything was prepared to order with the freshest of local ingredients including freshly laid eggs and homemade granola. Needless to say everything was delicious. Special arrangements could be made for late afternoon coffee, or prearranged picnic or cheese platters. Otherwise there is no food service available. There are refrigerators in the rooms. Traveling at night should be considered as the Inn is a short distance from Dundee and Newberg. We had a driver, which I thoroughly recommend. There is a wine tasting room, but it was not open during our stay. We did enjoy the time and energy Karen and Neil have put into this spectactular property. They respect your privacy and provide you with a quality stay.
