We stayed at the Carlton Inn B&B for a couple nights while exploring the Willamatte Valley. We were greeted by Innkeeper Karen and the smell of fresh baked banana bread wafting from the kitchen. I don't think the banan bread (being prepared for our breakfast in the morning) was planned to coincide with our arrival, but it took our already good first impression and put it over the top. Karen showed us around and gave us a little history on the 99 year old home at the same time. She took her time to tell us about the Inn's amenities and some things to see and do around town. More specifically, since there aren't a lot of places open to eat on a Monday night in Carlton, a new restaurant & pub within walking distance (Barrel 47).
We settled into our very comfortable room at the top of the stairs. We found bed found to be very, very comfortable. The sheet set had to be one of the most comfortable I've ever experienced. The bathroom has access from the sitting room connected to our room or by going across the hall. It was well stocked and immaculate.
The breakfasts we had the two mornings we were there, the meals were amazing! Karen sets the bar pretty high and consistently overachieves. The food was fresh and sumptuous each morning. I particularly liked her homemade granola and yogurt. There were always fresh baked goods to be had as well.
We would not hesitate to return to the Carlton Inn or to recommend to others.
