OregonTravelDaily.com gives “A Most Delicious Bit of Travel Advice” for Oregon visitors, offering choice picks of wine country lodging. The Black Walnut Inn in Dundee and Red Ridge Farms in Dayton were featured establishments that came highly recommended for wine and nature lovers.
Both the Black Walnut Inn and Red Ridge Farms are ideal wine country lodging choices thanks to their proximity to tasting rooms, vineyards, great views and character-filled accommodations.
Black Walnut Inn. 9600 NE Worden Hill Road. Dundee, Oregon. 503.538.8663.
Both a vineyard and a bed ‘n’ breakfast, grape vines dominate the view here, as far as the horizon extends. That and plenty of mountains.
Here, you are in the Dundee Hills and close to all the major wineries that have made a national and international splash in recent years. Five minutes to the old school Americana of Newberg and close to the hills of the Oregon coast range.
It’s what they call “wine country lodging” – and with good reason. You are quite literally in the midst of a winery. Nine upscale suites come with private baths and sitting areas, plus awe-inspiring views of major mountains of the area can be taken in from the balconies, patios and gorgeous gardens. Pleasant details abound, such as Italian linens, soaking tubs, top-of-the-line bath products and wi-fi.
Red Ridge Farms. 5510 NE Breyman Orchards Rd. Dayton, Oregon. 503-864-8502.
Red Ridge Farms. Located in the tiny burgh of Dayton, you’re surrounded by forested roads, small rivers and of course, an abundance of wineries. Laid out in polished wood and soaring ceilings, there’s not simply a massive window to the world here but a glorious balcony overlooking the greenery of wine country.
There are two private retreats offered here. One is tucked above the Red Ridge Gift Shop and is perfect for a getaway for two. There’s a dining room and a full kitchen to help you fill it up, along with a living room. Two balconies overlook the vineyard, an olive grove and a field of lavender.
The second is Stoneycrest Cottage, which is larger and accommodates families. It boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms – an excellent home base for groups looking to really explore the pleasantries and pleasures of the area.
