We LOVED this place!!! The perfect way to round out your visit to Willlamette Valley is to stay at the Youngberg Hill Vineyards & Inn. We truly enjoyed the experience of staying at a working vineyard. It’s a real opportunity. The Inn has sweeping views of the countryside which are breathtaking.
The owners are wonderful hosts and Wayne is so helpful with suggestions and tips for touring the area. Becky is amazing and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and at home. She doesn't miss a single detail. We stayed in the Jura room which has floor to ceiling windows, so the view is so pretty and the sunrise stunning. The room is very spacious with all of the amenities – great bedding, towels and the shower & jacuzzi are 5-star. The Inn itself is very spacious with plenty of comfortable seating areas and a nice fireplace. Every day at 4pm, they do wine tasting in front of the fireplace so it’s a chance to wind down and recount the day. Wayne is very knowledgeable about wine and running a vineyard so it’s a huge bonus to talk with him first hand and to learn about the growing process and the wine you are drinking. Their Pinot Noir is very good. The Inn has a fabulous, large wrap around porch so you can also sit outside and enjoy the view.
They serve a nice hearty breakfast and the dining area also has beautiful views of the countryside. We also enjoyed that it is a genuine family working farm. There are cows in the field and the dogs running and playing in the fields only added to the appeal of staying here. McMinnville is a great central location to base your visit to the area and has a hip little downtown. There are plenty of great restaurants in the area with many serving exceptional food. They really have the "Farm to Table" concept dialed in here. There is a lot to do in the area beyond world class wine tasting. We visited Cape Lookout State Park which has beautiful hiking trails on the Coast. There are also several outdoor adventure outfitters for hire that offer tours and also drivers that specialize in wine tasting tours. Reserve ahead, they fill up quickly. We found the people in Oregon to be amazing, down to earth and its a great place to visit. We highly recommend the Youngberg Hill Vineyards & Inn and definitely plan on staying here again. Did I mention the view?
