Mary rolls out the red carpet with personality – the ultimate hospitable, easygoing and down-to-earth hostess who couldn’t have been more accommodating. The clean and well-maintained rooms in this quaint B&B are individually artist-themed and decorated with character. Our “Monet” suite provided a comfortable living area with sofa bed, cable TV & VCR, adequate dining space and ample, well-equipped kitchen facilities including mini-fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker with amenities such as complimentary coffee, tea, beverages & microwave popcorn. The bedroom is creatively decorated with delightful wall paintings and furnished with a bed suitable for Goldilocks. Off the bedroom is a private balcony overlooking the inn’s lovely, manicured garden and tranquil pond. Top this off with personal touches such as comfy his and hers robes, soothing towels and plentiful pillows to make you feel right at home. Ironing and laundry facilities are available which I consider a bonus at a B&B.
Mary prides herself in providing her guests with varied, well-balanced breakfasts and during our 3-day stay she did not disappoint. Breakfast each morning was both delectable and satisfying. We savored a diversity of fresh fruit, yogurt, baked apples, waffles, french toast, eggs benedict and sausage topped off with juice and fresh-brewed coffee. Not to be missed is her homemade granola! You could have breakfast delivered to your room but then you’d miss out on captivating conversations.
You’re welcome to lounge in the gardens, on the deck, in the entry-way sitting area where you can peruse local & historical material or relax in the roomy attic stocked with books, videos and games.
For the more adventurous traveler pamphlets on points of interest and area attractions are available in the foyer. In addition, Mary is both very knowledgeable and helpful in guiding you in the right direction, whether it be the community flavor of Parkdale just a short stroll from the B&B or the neighboring area.
This B&B is located in a relaxed, peaceful locale with the surrounding vicinity abundant in nature’s splendor and outdoor activities, a variety of wineries, an assortment of wonderful orchards, farms (they’re alpacas-not llamas) and plentiful fruit stands, spectacular rhododendrons, not to mention magnificent Mt. Hood that seems within arms reach.
It was by far the most pleasurable experience we've had at a B&B, greatly attributed to Mary’s winning personality and dedication to being the definitive innkeeper - thank you for a memorable experience.
