When traveling through the Willamette Valley in Oregon, a bed & breakfast might not be your first lodging choice, but here are five reasons why it should be.
Let’s start at the beginning: breakfast. Nothing starts a day better than a delicious homemade breakfast, and that is exactly what you’ll get at a bed & breakfast. Wake up to the wafting smells of freshly brewed coffee and breakfast being prepared in the kitchen. The breakfast you’ll enjoy is unique and different from that which you might normally prepare at home or have at a hotel. Even if you don’t normally start your day with a full breakfast, while in the Willamette Valley, you may want to enjoy the morning meal. After all, it is important to wake up your taste buds, and fill your stomach, prior to a day of wine tasting.
The second reason to stay at a bed and breakfast is for the serene experience. Unplug, and detox from all the hustle and bustle of your daily life in a beautiful home with all the comforts of home. Typically located in rural locations, these establishments provide spectacular views, quiet and serene environments, no light pollution, easy access to nature, and the relaxation of not having to do anything but enjoy wine and the Valley. Only a few minutes from town and great restaurants, it’s the best of both worlds.
Reason number three, bed and breakfasts here in the valley are congregation areas for people that are passionate about good wine, good food, and enjoying both while relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings. You’ll have unique opportunities to meet new people from all over the world. It is always amazing how many connections are made, new friendships established, and stories Inn guest share. At Youngberg Hill, you have multiple opportunities to meet with your fellow travelers not only at breakfast, but also during the exclusive wine tasting; just another opportunity to taste great Pinot Noirs of the Willamette Valley!
Number four, service. Guests have exclusive access to some of the most knowledgeable people around; the owners and innkeepers. These people are your built-in concierge service, there to help you navigate the innumerable wineries, dozens of restaurants for lunch and dinner, and other activities during your time in the valley. Knowing the local scene, logistics of getting around in the valley, realistic travel times, and where to have the best experiences are all worth their weight in gold when it comes to making your Willamette Valley experience remarkable. They are there to make your trip as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
Which brings me to number five, our people. The overall experience you will enjoy with a B&B like Youngberg Hill is unsurpassed. Our staff pays attention to every detail to ensure that you have a unique experience focused on you and your preferences. You will feel coddled and cared for like nowhere else and coupled with the quiet ambiance, will have you relaxed and refreshed. One guest stated that his blood pressure was reduced by 20 points during his stay. That says it all.
