We stayed in the Mountain room for two nights in November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lea and Andy were welcoming and even though we were running a bit late on our arrival time (I called ahead for a heads up) we still felt welcome.
Our room was spotless and every attempt to ensure we were comfortable was made. The bed was a Tempurpedic mattress which made our sleep very enjoyable. The windows had blackout shades so we weren't blasted with morning light first thing. Our room was equipped with a TV & DVD player (DVDs are available in the media room), a small fridge, and a set of cups, wine glasses, dishes, utensils, and napkins. If you forgot your soaps, don't worry because the shower is complete with body soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. If your shoes are scuffed, there are also shoe polishing cloths!
The main living areas of the B&B contain a sitting area and fireplace, a library with board games, books, magazines, cards, yoga mats, and lawn games. Through the breezeway outside is an entertainment room with a large screen TV that is connected for cable TV viewing, an impressive DVD collection for use there or in your private room, a kitchen area, and a large sofa. This is a great area to use if you are staying with a large family or group of friends.
Breakfast was served at 9am, however by 7am there was coffee, tea, pastries, and fruit set out if you need something to curb your appetite. During our stay we enjoyed delicious oatmeal scones and for breakfast the first morning the pain perdu with bananas & strawberries and a side of local bacon was outstanding. Most enjoyable for me because it wasn't too sweet. The second morning we had a salmon mousse baked in a puff pastry with spiced baked grapefruit on the side. The breakfasts here are the best I've had at a B&B.
When we made our reservation we selected the Taste of Willamette which was really nice to have waiting for us in our room when we arrived. A local bottle of wine, a selection of two local cheeses and meats, salted caramels, nuts, and crackers. If you decide that you want more wine during your stay, bottles can be purchased from the selection they have on-site.
The grounds of Le Puy are stunning and there are plenty of places to relax. I wish we'd been able to stay longer and my only hope is that sometime in our future we will find ourselves visiting again!
