“So much more than a place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This was the first bed and breakfast I've ever stayed at and I was unsure when I booked it, especially since I was travelling alone. I didn't know what to expect, but the excellent review here on tripadvisor along with other research I did convinced me to give it a try. I started off just looking for somewhere to stay for a few days, but the Apple Inn turned out to be so much more.

The first day I drove up to the b&b, I was in awe of the trees that surrounded the property. Kathe and Harry greeted me warmly and we chatted briefly before they left. My first treat was peanut butter cookies that were so good. Over the course of those 4 days, the Apple Inn became my home away from home and it was so hard to leave when the time came. Between Kathe's delicious breakfasts and treats and Harry's entertaining stories and jokes, the Inn began to feel less like a place to stay and more like home. Kathe catered her breakfasts to the needs of the other guests who had food allergies. She loves to cook and to create new recipes. Be sure to ask about the Dutch baby pancakes!

I spent several hours over the course of the weekend chatting with them and learning about the area and the forest. Harry is so knowledgeable about forestry and you can see how much he loves his land and cares about conservation. Harry went out of his way to make his beautiful forest accessible to me. I've never hiked in a forest and their property is like another world. There are so many beautiful flowers that grow around the Inn which adds to the charm and the peacefulness of the area.

The Apple Inn is so much more than a place to stay, it's a peaceful and beautiful home away from home and I hope to visit again very soon.

We really enjoyed staying with Kathe and Harry at their B&B. She is a Cottage Grove native and very tuned into the area; he has retired from the timber industry and is an expert on intelligent forest management. They are a very pleasant couple and their home is a delight. Breakfast was a treat. We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The downstairs room has two twin beds and a double; the upstairs a double.

Thanks for letting us know you were happy with your stay with us. We enjoyed hearing your history with our little town. I just want to clarify on your room tip, we have queen beds, not double beds. That's is likely what you meant. We look forward to your next visit in your special MG.

We had a great time staying at the Apple Inn for three nights. Located in the shady woods, it was a nice respite from the very sunny day event we were attending in Cottage Grove. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts outstanding, and the hosts were informative and fun to chat with. A big plus was being able to hike uphill through their forested property...absolutely beautiful!

Room Tip: The Apple Orchard room, where we stayed, has a private entance.

This is my fifth visit to the Apple Inn. Kathe and Harry have a beautiful home tucked away in Cottage Grove. Both rooms are immaculate, cozy and comfy. A perfect place for a getaway. Breakfast is delicious with a wide variety of fresh fruit, baked goods, eggs and coffee. We look forward to our yearly visit. Feels like home away from home!

We attended a conference in Eugene and found this location quite do-able. It is pleasantly a bit remote, beautiful setting in the trees and perennial gardens; but not difficult to find. We three girl friends had a great time visiting and enjoying the outdoors . The food was delicious and the presentation very charming; and everything immaculately clean.

Had a wonderful overnight retreat at Apple Inn Bed and Breakfast. Kathe and Harry are a great team. The food was delicious and she went to extra trouble to make sure my husband's gluten-free diet was met. Harry gives a very informative tour of the forest as well. I am still enjoying the lotion and soap from my basket. Thanks for a special memory.

During our three week trip through Oregon and North california we stayed three nights at the Apple Inn. For us the inn was a perfect match and from the first moment we felt welcome and at home. The inn is very well kept, cozy and beautifully situated. The room was immacculately clean, well furnished with much love for detail and equipped with a lot of amenities. The breakfast was really excellent and we enjoyed chatting and laughing with Kathie and Harry, the Inn keepers. They gave us information on landmarks, covered bridges and other beautiful spots and also recommendations on good places to eat. From Harry we learnt also a lot about trees and forresting. While touring through the scenic countryside and roaming on forrests trails we had a most relaxing time and the only regret we had was that we couldn´t stay longer...
