The Allison Inn & Spa was featured in 10 Modern Luxury Magazines, including Chicago Style, Angeleno, Riviera Orange County, Houston, The Atlantan, Scottsdale, Riviera San Diego, Miami, Dallas and DC! The three-page feature entitled “Heart of the Valley” describes The Allison Spa as a “standout,” the farm-to-table philosophy and culinary as having a “wow-appeal,” and the resort’s importance in the valley.
An excerpt from the article is below.
Curated by the Austins’ daughter, local artist and gallery owner Loni Parrish, the inn’s private art collection includes six commissioned works and a total of more than 500 original pieces from 100 Oregonian artists. These are peppered throughout the property, including its guest rooms and exterior grounds amid 35 hillside acres. Also found in each guest room is The Art of the Allison Collection, a 107-page tome showcasing both artists and artwork, while also providing an informative tour.
But that’s just one amenity of guest accommodations, which include 77 deluxe guest rooms (starting at 490 square feet) and eight suites (starting at 650 square feet), including a 1,575-square-foot, two-bedroom Grand Penthouse Suite. All options feature a private terrace or balcony, custom-crafted closets, cabinets and furnishings. Fully upholstered window seats fronting gas fireplaces are ideal spots for cozying up, while luxurious baths beckon with soaking tubs and customized sliding panels filtering in hillside or vineyard views, plus built-in satellite televisions. All these features are in addition to state-of-the-art technology—automated window shades, climate controls and Bose sound systems. There’s also custom Oregon walnut tables upon which to perch a laptop, along with wet bars with filtered water, small refrigerators and complimentary accoutrements like a welcome snack basket and Wi-Fi (available everywhere on property).
As awe-inspiring as all this is, The Allison Spa is also a standout. Spanning nearly 15,000 square feet and boasting 12 treatment rooms, the serene environment also includes a private suite for small gatherings, a mani/pedi area, a hair salon, plush relaxation rooms, two saunas and steam rooms, a whirlpool and an indoor “vanishing-edge” swimming pool with folding floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to the sun terrace and gardens. And just as the rest of the inn integrates nature, so does the spa, through treatments and design, adding to the marvel of immediately sensed serenity.
