Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stayed at the Evergreen Tea Room and Guest House for one week during June while visiting family nearby. We very much enjoyed our clean, spacious suite, and the hospitality of Judy and Jeff, the proprietors, who made our visit very comfortable.

We have stayed in many B&B's over the years in many parts of the US: luxury B&Bs; boutique inns; historic B&Bs; Victorian, Colonial, eclectic, modern, and rustic; East Coast, West Coast, Southeast, and the West. All of them are different, charming, and special in their own ways, and the Evergreen Tea Room & Guest House is no exception.

The Minnie Lowe Room, where we stayed, is a very large suite tastefully decorated in soothing blue, gold, and white hues, with windows on three sides that let in lots of light and allow for good cross-flow ventilation (there is also a window A/C unit in the bedroom). The king-sized bed is very comfortable -- clearly the innkeepers have invested in high-quality mattresses. The sitting room with sofa, chair and wi-fi turned out to be a very useful workspace for us when unexpected events led to changes in travel plans and other business arrangements that needed to be conducted from our suite. The en-suite bathroom is enormous and has a shower with excellent water pressure (separate pumps for each bathroom). There is also a huge antique tub, original pedestal sink, and an oval window with a view of the wooded hillside behind the inn (see photo).

The Minnie Lowe suite is one of the largest B&B suites we've ever stayed in. The square footage of the sitting, bed, and bath rooms is easily double the size of a "typical" B&B room.

Breakfasts were made-to-order, whenever-we-showed-up-downstairs-in-the-morning. Just before we arrived, Judy had made a new batch of granola, which we ate every morning. It's excellent, healthful, and not too sweet. Judy lists the ingredients on the container, so you know exactly what you're eating. Skim milk? Not a problem. Fresh OJ and tea/coffee as soon as you sit down at the dining room table. During the week of our visit, Judy also made us blueberry pancakes, eggs-any-way-we-wanted, French toast, and regular toast with home-made jam. Judy grows her own berries in the back garden, so the blueberry pancakes and the home-made jam were made from fruit grown right at the inn. She also raises her own chickens, so the eggs were fresh every morning. (Note that the roosters are early risers, even if you are not :-)

Judy and Jeff take great pride in their Inn's special history and connection to their family. There are many interesting artifacts that the hosts graciously and eagerly share with their guests.

This B&B is located near the crossroads of a heavily travelled two-lane road. During the summer, when we visited, we left the windows open at night, rather than running the A/C. During the week, we could hear the traffic noise, but on the weekend, the traffic was noticeably lighter and things were much quieter. When we had the windows closed or the A/C running, we really didn't notice much traffic noise at all. (We once stayed at an Oregon B&B Inn that was right next to RR tracks -- the owner's provided ear plugs in every room! -- and in comparison, the road noise was a minor issue at the Evergreen Tearoom.

Everything we experienced -- attractive, clean, spacious rooms; delicious, healthful, made-to-order breakfasts; warm, friendly hosts -- made this a very good B&B. What made it a great B&B was the extra compassion, the you-can't-buy-this-kind-of-kindness that Judy showed to us when our family emergency struck. I'll never forget Judy inviting my Dad to join her on the porch swing on the back porch while we dealt with family arrangements in three different states -- five-star hospitality at its finest.
