As a guest at our Willamette Valley Bed and Breakfast, start your adventure by tasting our exceptional varietals at Youngberg Hill Vineyard & Winery.

At the vineyard, we pay attention to every detail of the process, from the vine to the bottle, ensuring every glass of wine is exceptional. We take that same detail-oriented attitude to our level of service at the Inn—our goal is to make your stay the best it can be each time you visit!
Inside our beautiful Willamette Valley Bed and Breakfast, you’ll find our elegantly appointed guest suites with in-room comforts like fireplaces and deluxe air jet bathtubs, making each stay a relaxing retreat.
