The CH Bailey HOuse Bed and Breakfast is situated in the idyllic, peaceful, rolling farmlands of Oregon, about 10 miles from Roseburg off the I-5. It is far removed from Roseburg yet still close enough if guests wish to drive in to the city for an evening meal.
The old house has been perfectly restored with every attention to craftsman detail. It is tasteful, comfortable and cozy without being overly done. The grounds are extensive with surrounding yard, lawns and garden expertly manicured. There are swatches of farmland that welcome a wander. Plenty of space for privacy and respite from the hum of city life and fast pace of I-5. The countryside and wide open spaces offer respite and a special ambiance seldom captured on a fast trip through Oregon.
The main salon is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, large enough to suit the number of guests and is complete with fireplace. The breakfast room is also located next to the main salon with large windows and subtle, tastefuly decor fitting the age and architecture of the house.
Four bedrooms, each with ensuite bath are located on the second floor. All are priced the same and each equally lovely and cared for with comfy furnishings that make a welcoming atmosphere at the end of a long day. Baths are clean, white,and bright . Fluffy towels and soft bed linens are no surprise in this well-tended BandB. Two rooms have private porches that face the surrounding farmlands.
The young owner couple deserve kudos for their hard work and taste, the special kind of care they have put into their home is evident everywhere and exceptional (especially for price). Their welcome offers just the right balance of friendliness+service yet allows guests quiet and privacy.
Sherry and her husband are "foodies" as evidenced by Sherry's carefully prepared breakfast. Ours included fresh farm raised poached eggs on toated ciabatta with prosciutto, topped with Sherry's garden raised tomatoes and a sprig of basil accompanied by a muffin, juice and coffee or tea.
A lovely extra is extended to guests... complimentary white and red wines from the region (as well as soft drinks) Sherry's introduction to local wines tempt guests to visit regional caves (especially as the Oregon wine business grows and increasingly improves its offerings (the pinot gris was exceptional while the red nothing special).
There is only one small blemish for us coffee lovers from Seattle. Soon we imagine Sherry will offer a superb cup of java or expresso, but it is the ONLY thing missing in an otherwise remarkable home.
This Band B should not be missed. Soon it will be "discovered" and returning guests will surely make it difficult to capture reservations in one of the 4 available rooms.
Dogs are accepted and it is a haven for 4 legged critters as well.
