“Love this place!”
Reviewed September 21, 2008

This B&B is such a great find! We first stayed back in May and fell in love with the house and the people. This is a wonderful place to stay - the owner's made us feel so welcome and their hospitality was such an unexpected surprise addition to our girls only weekend away. We will absolutely come back here!

Our first time in the Willamette Valley, we wanted a central location and the Kelty Inn was perfect - wineries all close driving distance. Nicci, the Inn's owner was a wonderful hostess - provides a large, beautiful breakfast to guests every morning. We stayed in the Strawberry Room - spacious and comfortable with a private bath adjoining. A lovely home, very conducive to rest and relaxation.

We stayed at the Kelty Estate after a wedding at a near by Vinyard.
It was the most perfect place to stay. Perfectly restored, but includes all the modern comforts. Each room has a private bath and the bed linens are FABULOUS. I never wanted to get up!! But then there was the wonderful breakfast, which was served to us on the back brick deck, tucked into the beatutiful gardens. Heavenly
We highly recommend this B+B. I definately wish we had stayed longer.

We stayed at the Kelty for one night as part of a 6-day Oregon trip. Save room for breakfast because owner Nikki Stokes makes a hearty gourmet meal that is absolutely decadent! The atmosphere was very warm and friendly. Definitely recommended!

Everything is plush and comfortable; the hospitality and breakfasts of Innkeeper Nicci are the best!! We wish we had scheduled more days to stay, but it was our first time. We will know better next time!!! The wine refrigerators in each room (along with snacks at a moderate price) were an unexpected extra!! We also appreciated the other extras you don't always get in a B&B: an in-room TV and a house computer to check our email and airline flights. Antique shops across the street, lots of nearby wineries. Great value for the money! Come stay - you will be glad you did!

We booked Kelty Estate B&B because it was centrally located for our wine tour and the rooms had private baths and looked very charming in the photos. When we arrived we were thrilled Kelty had all that going for it and so much more! We called the Klamath Suite our tree house because right outside our door to the deck was a massive 400 year old oak tree that shaded the entire backyard!
As beautiful as the home and the grounds were, nothing can compare to the hospitality that was bestowed upon us by our hostess Nicci. It's a true gift to be able to make guests feel like family. We looked forward to our wine and goodies in the evening and to the phenomenal breakfasts out on the patio with Nicci and other guests (I recommend sharing breakfast!).
We certainly feel like we have made a lifelong friend a found a home-away-from-home and can't wait to return for a visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Kelty Inn. The owner, Nicci, is delightful and has a knack for making everyone feel special, and welcome. It's located in the middle of the Willamette Valley wineries, more wineries than you can imagine within a 20 minute drive. The Inn is very charming and well kept. One of the highlights of our stay was the "3 course" breakfast.
