“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

My husband & I visited the Oregon Garden for the first time. Our room was the cleanest we have EVER stayed in. The dinner was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. We would highly recommend it to anyone, anytime! We would go again in a heartbeat!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Oregon Garden Resort. I first spied this charming country Lodge with cottage rooms and beautiful gardens as I toured the Oregon gardens, which by the way is a bonus to the whole experience (and you get free entrance to the gardens with your stay at the resort!). This 3 year old resort is beautiful, rooms are comfy, each with it's own fireplace and small deck. The lodge has a resturant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bar lounge is roomy, offers local musician performances and a happy hour! It's a delight full stay and offers many specials to invite you to stay here.
It's not right off the freeway but about 30-40 minutes inland in the small town of Silverton. Even though it's off the beaten track from major towns in the Portland/Salem area, it's worth it. There are wineries near by, Silver Falls, and shopping with the Woodburn Outlet right off the 5 Frwy. Have a tranquil experience staying here and exporing the nearby small town finds.

We stayed one night at the Oregon Garden Resort as part of our honeymoon trip. We purchased the Romance Package and this turned out to be a great way to go! The resort itself seems relatively new, is laid out in a series of "cottages", has very clean well appointed rooms, is quiet and beautifully landscaped. The grounds seemed like an extension of the botanical garden below the property. The service, food and wine at the restaurant were all great--we had the seared scallops and mahi-mahi wi a bottle of the house white wine. The full breakfast that was served the next day (buffet style) was also very good. Being big garden fans, we really liked its location right next to Oregon Gardens and the admission tix included with our stay. Having our own private entrance to the gardens, we were able to wander down and walk around whenever we felt like it--for us that was 3 times during our stay! It was so nice to be able to take in the huge botanical garden at our leisure. If you did not feel like walking the 100 yards down the hill, a tram runs on the half hour to take you around the gardens and to and from the resort. Included in the package were 6 lovely long-stem roses and a box of gourmet chocolates! Sweet!

The room looked nice, and was clean. Didn’t use the gas fireplace, because it was 85+ degrees outside, but the air conditioning worked well, and in the morning we opened the windows (with screens) to let in fresh, cool air. The small deck had a limited view of the gardens and the Willamette Valley in the distance; limited because of the other “bungalow” units surrounding us. Each unit has six guest rooms, three on each side of an outdoor, covered hallway with a wood decking floor. It seemed a little loud to walk on, and I think rolling luggage would be louder.

I picked up no wifi signal at all, so internet access for my laptop was only available with wired Ethernet cable (provided). There was a small desk with a lamp (with two electrical outlets in the base), but the desk chair was uncomfortable, like a dining chair. I think a rolling desk chair would be much more comfortable, but the resort is more geared to leisure, than business, guests.

The flat screen TV (32” ?) received a lot of channels. A small built-in cabinet housed a mini-refrigerator, topped by a counter with coffee maker and mini-microwave. The large closet in the entry had sliding doors with full mirrors. The bathroom was typical and not luxurious. Very small tub with shower had a dispenser with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. There were only two of each type of towel, probably in the name of “being green” but I think it’s kind of annoying to not have at least four bath towels and hand towels. The bed was very comfortable, with four pillows, and a down comforter encased in sheets, PLUS a blanket. I appreciate that, especially in summer, when a down comforter is too hot, but just a sheet isn’t enough.

We had a “dinner escape package” rate, which included two dinner entrees at the on-site restaurant. It also included a bottle of wine, with a choice of four varieties. The food was good, wine okay, and our only cost for dinner was one salad and the tip. A buffet breakfast was also part of the package, and it was very typical. Scrambled eggs, link sausage, potatoes, mini muffins, oatmeal mix, sliced honeydew melon, coffee, two kinds of juice, and a big bowl of yogurt (but no small bowls to put it in; I had to use a coffee mug).

From the adorable cottage style rooms with down comforters, patios and fireplaces to the lodge that feels like your at the mountain this place is my favorite place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The food is delish and the spa is one of my favorites.
They always have live music in the lounge & make sure to order a Spanish coffee yumm all of this makes for a fantastic evening of fun and relaxation.
Become their friend on Facebook and take advantage of the "special offers" that they sometimes post.
This resort is located less than 1 hr. from Portland, OR and don’t forget to check out the amazing hiking at Silver Falls - you get to hike behind waterfalls - its a easy hike and beautiful.
I recommend this place to everyone I know...

We stayed at the Oregon Garden Resort for two nights on our way back to Portland. The resort is above the Oregon Gardens and has flowers everywhere on the property. The restaurant at the resort is very good. the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a great State Park 14 miles from the resort which has some lovely waterfalls and is a great place for hiking. Our room was comfortable with its own patio.

Room Tip: For solitude, get a room in the back of the property.

A group of 11 women who all graduated from a Portland metropolitan High School in 1963 had a wonderful retreat to this beautiful, clean, well-planned (especially how the room are set up to maximize viewing the beautiful flora AND each guests privacy. The meals were wonderful (one dinner, one happy hour lounge meal, and two breakfasts) especially the quality of the food and service at the dinner. Having so much access to the Oregon Gardens themselves and the convenience of walking a hundred feet from reception to our own little tram stop, and the ensuing overview and introduction to the Gardens was so nice. The crickets were singing, the fall flowers and vegetable were fun to see. We did have problem with the electronic key to our room not be activated but staff were VERY quick to remedy the problem. I will definitely return to this Resort and will bring my family next time.
