“Like staying at home”
Reviewed 30 June 2009

I loved the University House because it was like staying as a guest in someone's house, without actually having to bother the host. Leigh Wellikoff, the owner, was extremely gracious. She runs the place as though you were guests in a house, setting out everything you need, and giving you run of the place. She makes great breakfasts, and is willing to go the extra mile to help, even going out to pick up Chinese food one evening for me so that I could watch a hockey playoff game.
The house itself is beautifully adorned, but not fussy. It is comfortable, with an office that can be used for work, or a living room for reading or watching television, if you get sick of watching it in your own room.
I was there on business, but would quickly go back and make it a base for a day of visiting the Willamette Valley Wineries.

What a great experience for our "girls" birthday weekend getaway. Leigh was so accomodating from the reservation process all the way through our departure. We felt like we were relatives in her B and B. Such charm, warmth, and hospitality in this home of her families antique furniture including all the way to the dishes, light fixtures and pictures. We enjoyed the goodies left in the frig, the homemade cinnamon rolls and relaxing in the outdoor hot tub after our "vigorous" wine tasting afternoons. It was the perfect location and great community to walk around in. Leigh offered wonderful advice on where to eat and what wineries not to miss. This is a great place for giving you privacy with your own bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and exclusive use of the whole house. It has been so tastefully decorated and we loved her willingness to share this glimpse of the Pennsylvanian life she grew up with. Whether coming back with my girlfriends, husband or family, I look forward to another stay at the University House.
Thanks!

As Newberg, OR is in the heartbeat of Oregon Wine Country, a small group of us decided to visit for the wine trails. Finding the B&B on the web was score number 1. When talking with the innkeeper, she ws very informative and so helpful. We took all her advise for which wineries to visit and were not disappointed at all. Staying at the B&B was the icing on the cake. The house was adorable. The setting was peaceful. The innkeeper herself was wonderful. The warm hot tub, the antiques, the most awesome cinnamon rolls. I swear I died and went to heaven. The weekend was definitely relaxing and I can't thank Leigh enough for being a great B&B host and travel guide! I can't wait to go back!

  • Liked — The innkeeper, her personality was spunky, energetic; her helpfulness too. The house is great too!
  • Disliked — Nothing. It was all good.

Stayed for one night at this lovely property. Warm and inviting. Good beds, dreamy fireplace, lots of room to spread out. Breakfast was delicious homemade cinnamon rolls with fruit and premium coffees. Owner Leigh is a gracious hostess, very friendly, and can give loads of recommendations for restaurants, etc. in the area.

Would definitely stay here again!

My daughter happened on to Leigh Wellikoff's bed and breakfast in September of 2007, and couldn't stop talking about how cute the house was and how each room was furnnished with beautiful antiques. So, when she heard that a group of us wanted to visit Oregon's wine country this past summer, she suggested that I try and stay in Newberg at the University House.
From the time we arrived, until we left five days later, we were treated just like family. The house (including the kitchen and refrigerator) was completely stocked with anything we might have needed.
Not only did Leigh put together some great tasting breakfasts each morning, she arranged for us to visit wineries that are not on the normal tourist route, she suggested local restaurants that she thought we would like, and after we departed, she graciously boxed up some of our personal belongings that we had left behind and shipped them back to us in Texas.
This will definitely be the place we will stay the next time we visit the Willammett Valley.

My father and his girlfriend were coming to visit and wanted a nice bed and breakfast to stay at. We couldn't of been happier with the University House. They had a house all to themselves with all the comforts of home. The house is lovingly restored and they were also delighted to have a warm jacuzzi to sit in at night.

Lee is a wonderful proprietor who really takes care of her guests and gave them excellent suggestions of sights to see, as well as restaurants and wineries to visit. I would highly recommend it as a delightful place to stay while exploring the wine country of Yamhill County. It's where my father wants to stay now any time he is up in Oregon visiting.

  • Liked — It felt like being in a very lovely home that you didn't have to take care of.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything off the top of my head.

I just spent three delightful days in this quaint B & B. The house is warm, clean, and immaculate. The landscaping is lush and well groomed, and the service was attentive. There is a cozy covered sitting area on the side of the house. It is across the street from George Fox University and within 2 blocks of the small downtown of Newberg.
