Our trip to the Oregon Wine Country was not the romantic retreat advertised by the Baker Street B & B. We chose This Inn because it was pet friendly and we were traveling with our dog. We stayed in the cottage behind the main house. The bathroom and kitchen were clean, but filled with garage sale stuff. This cottage was cluttered with junk on every horizontal surface leaving little room for our belongings. The sheets were clean, but the blanket and bedspread smelled stuffy and were not freshly cleaned. We covered the sofa with an extra sheet before sitting on it. The carpet was obviously dirty. Our dog nipped at mites (I didn't see fleas, but it was obviously infested with something). Although I have never been aware of allergies, there must have been mold in this cottage. I was instantly stuffy and woke up with a sore throat both mornings. My symptoms would clear after being outdoors. We had parking issues with the tenants who lived behind the cottage (and were interrupted 3 times one evening when asked to move our car so they could leave our reserved parking spot). The downtown location is nice (but noisy). When we returned home all dog bedding and our clothing were washed in hot water. The dog had a bath too before coming into our home.
