Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but if you haven’t made any plans yet, don’t panic! Oregon is home to amazing bed-and-breakfasts that can provide a perfect Valentine’s Day weekend with your special someone.
The Carlton Inn is one of Oregon’s many Bed-and-breakfast inns made for Valentine’s Day. With their cozy rooms, friendly staff and easy-access to a variety of tasting rooms and good food, it comes as no surprise.
Karen Choules, innkeeper for The Carlton Inn, says that “being within walking distance of 2 dozen tasting rooms is a big draw. The Inn’s colorful decor is a feast for the eyes, and the homemade gourmet breakfasts are bountiful and yummy.”
In the nearby wine country, the Carlton Inn is a farmhouse-style home located just a few blocks’ walk from the impressive Carlton Winemakers Studio. Built in 1915 by the owner of an area lumber mill and a B&B since 2005, it still features the original fir floors, decorative crown molding and butler’s pantry true to the time of its origin. American and European antiques, many of them family heirlooms, adorn the four rooms and the dining and living areas. Rates start at $140 (www.thecarltoninn.com).
