“Ridiculously amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

No doubt this is the place to stay. The Heaven room was amazing with an incredible bed, great shower and tub and relaxing sitting area both inside and on private patio. Breakfast- amazing. The attention to detail is perfect and it is a quiet relaxing inn that exudes serenity and class. Staff is excellent, helpful, knowledgeable of the area and wineries. Book early as it fills up fast.

We just spent five days in the Willamette learning about the wines and the vineyards. We stayed at Le Puy for the duration and had a magnificent experience. The inn seems newly renovated and impeccably maintained. The breakfasts were well prepared and all quite different from one another (a good thing!!!). Lea and Andy (the owners) bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and are a great source for advice on restaurants, vineyard visits, hiking trails, etc. My wife is lactose intolerant. Each and every breakfast was tailored to her dietary restrictions and she was never made to feel uncomfortable about her special circumstances. We will visit the valley again (possibly next year) and would not consider staying anywhere else. Well done!

We just spent 3 days of bliss in the Willamette Valley and a large part of that was the gracious hospitality and beautiful accommodations at the Le Puy. We stayed in Air, and yes, per another reviewer's remarks, there is a shared thermostat which we found easily managed by being the last ones in every evening. The setting is gorgeous and the pain perdu is killer as were the blueberry scones. Lea's recommendation to visit Colene Clemens was spot on and we found the room amenities both thoughtful and delightful. Both Andy and Lea took a genuine interest in their guests, ensuring that they maximized their time in the valley.
I fell compelled to just add a little balance to those earlier comments on Air, the "road noise" was undetectable inside, and when we were outside it was certainly quieter than our home urban environment. The bathroom did not have double sinks but was still larger than the one in our first apartment. And between our iPhones and iPad a tv was certainly not needed or missed. But we did find that even at both being 39 we skewed young in general for the valley, so maybe it's a generational thing.

My wife and I stayed at Le Puy with our friends here for 2 nights. We were visiting our home Oregon from Abu Dhabi. This place is owned and operated by a very nice couple how provide a great service. Breakfast on both mornings were amazing with all fresh produce picked up that morning from the garden. We stayed in the room "Haven" and it had a bathtub in the room. View was amazing from the window. Our friends stayed at the room with the Jacuzzi outside. We sure plan on visiting again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Haven' and loved it.

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We chose the room "Heaven" for our stay and couldn't have been happier. We had communicated with Leah prior to arrival about restaurants her advice (along with trip advisor) allowed us to secure reservations at some wonderful local restaurants.

Check in was a breeze, Andy showed us the house and amenities and we were thrilled with the quality of the home, it was so inviting. There is a room with a TV and small kitchen with sodas, popcorn, trail mix available 24/7. Other than grabbing a few handfuls of trail mix and some cans of soda we didn't utilize the room. But it sure looked great and comfortable.

Our room couldn't have been nicer. Oh my...a huge soaking tub, wonderful bed and seating area, spacious bathroom and a heated towel bar! The best part was the seating area outside with two adirondack chairs. Our room was stocked with a large container of ice cold water in the fridge, nuts and chocolates. There were picnic utensils, wine opener and water flasks for our use as well. We sat out each afternoon with a glass of wine and enjoyed the scenic views of the Chehalem mountain range. it was beautiful.

I woke early to walk each day and Andy had homemade meusli one morning and biscotti the next along with coffee and fruit. This was a pre-breakfast! Then the main breakfast was served between 9 and 11. Pain perdue one morning and a delicious egg/riccota dish the next. They were kind and gracious and answered questions about where to go, what to do etc.

Leah loaned us a cooler and gave us some fresh picked strawberries to take with us when we went wine tasting. We stopped and picked up some delicious sandwiches. It was a hot weekend so the cooler was very handy.

It was a perfect place to spend our anniversary and we hope to return so we can visit more wineries!

Room Tip: I thoroughly enjoyed the ground floor room as it provided a wonderful outdoor space for relaxing and...

I guess I will be "bucking the trend," but write these reviews so that other travelers know what to expect at the places we visit. I would love to rate this a 5, as every other reviewer has, but a few areas fell short of meeting that goal.
Hubby and I arrived in Newberg around 12:30pm, and we decided to see where the Inn was llocated even though we knew check-in time was 4:00pm. We also wanted to see if the iinnkeepers had some brochures or info on nearby wineries. We did not expect to check in early.
The front door was locked, so we rang the doorbell. Andy came out and acted like we were there to rob him, or so it seemed. There may be some regulations or rules about inviting people inside who weren't registered, but Andy shut the door in our face and then came back out with a map and some other materials for us. He was more friendly as we walked away from the door and he did give us some helpful ideas. We were both a little taken aback regarding this behavior from the owner and innkeeper. Not a good start.
We arrived back about 4:30pm to check in. Andy real friendly now. The first impression of the main house is awesome! High quality furniture, amazing views from the front of the house. Fireplace, outdoor seating, munchies available, and so much more. There is even a small library (a few books) and exercise room? Not a place to exercise, just some equipment. Outside is a croquet set that I would have liked to use.
Andy took us upstairs to Air. I always prefer the top floor--it cuts down on the "Elephant Dancers" so prevalent these days. Vaulted ceilings, luxurious bedding, comfy couch, nice table for 2, fresh flowers, salted caramels, and nuts, were just a few of the lovely amenities. The view from the door to the balcony is gorgeous. Which brings me to negative #1: the balcony door is almost impossible to open, and the balcony itself is TINY! Anyone with big feet would have trouble stepping out. No room for even a small chair.
The windows were open and the road noise was horrific! (negative #2) There is a reason there is a noise maker in the room! We always bring our own for occasions like this. With the windows closed, the noise is quite dampered, but (negative #3) there is no thermostat in the room to cool it down.
We found the thermostat outside our door in the hallway of the 3 upstairs rooms. Who gets to decide the temperature? We had a choice of sweating all night or hearing the truck noise. Opted for the heat.
Note: the next afternoon, our windows were closed and the air conditioner must be on high as room quite cold now.
To continue the tour of the Inn, Andy took us to the Loire Room---where the only TV with reception was located. No where on the website does it state that the televisions in the rooms are only for viewing dvds. I don't want to share my TV viewing habits which include wine drinking and snacking in my pjs or undies with strangers. There was a large collection of movies to choose from. This room would be perfect for weddings, family gatherings, etc. Microwave (including popcorn), trail mix, and sodas are also available here. We were quite disappointed that we would miss news and some of the RNConvention. We can live without Tv, but think it should be mentioned beforehand.
Andy helped carry our luggage to our room--a really nice touch considering the "luxury" place we stayed in the night before and had to drag our own luggage uphill.
Negative #4 was the bathroom. Yes, the towels are the most plush I have seen in a long time, but the room is small with only one sink and a shower-no tub. This was not unexpected after looking at the floorplan. What was unexpected was the quality of the shower---fiberglass? insert for the shower floor, with a small lip and shower curtain to curtail the water. Yes, an enclosed shower with a door is more expensive and harder to keep clean, but appearances do matter. Water pressure wasn't real great--much better with the handheld attachment. Again, I am not fond of the dispenser amenities although I understand while they are present more often.
Breakfast is served at 9am. Website states a possible earlier time, but when we asked Andy if we could eat earlier before our drive to the airport the next morning, he said he would check, but never responded back. The food is excellent, especially the pain perdue. Fresh fruit both mornings. Crisp bacon. And NO onions. If you read my other reviews, you know how I feel about that. Coffee is strong and abundant. Ready around 7am with a few items to eat: banana bread, granola, fruit, etc. Leah cooks and Andy serves---this is what a great B&B does! Leah comes by to chat at breakfast, asks if you need help for the day--dining or wineries, etc. Another nice touch.
This was almost a perfect spot for relaxing but for the above issues. The architects have done an amazing job with this property. However, we have stayed in numerous B&B's, and can not quite give it the 5 stars as some others we have visited. I believe that if some of these items were addressed in the website literature, people will still come in droves, and maybe a few others, like me, would go elsewhere. A good's night sleep is a high priority.

Room Tip: Generally, we prefer a room upstairs. Air has a great view, but perhaps a room facing away from the...

Lea D, Owner at Le Puy A Wine Valley Inn, responded to this review, September 2, 2012
We are so sorry that our guest did not find us perfect - we strive to be! The house was originally built as a single family home so the upstairs rooms are currently on one thermostat. Luckily, we are remedying this issue in October (when our busy season slows a bit). Each room will have an individual temperature control. Our website clearly states the amenities in each room as LCD/Blu-ray with complimentary movie library - it does not say TV. We also clearly describe the layout of each room verbally and with floor plan. Unfortunately, our guest forgot to mention the tiled shower surround and marble decorative mosaic tiles in the bathroom. The fiberglass floor was a conscious choice for cleanliness as that is very important to us. So, thank you for all the compliments and suggested improvements. We take each guest's experience to heart!

My wife and I spent three nights at Le Puy. We were very pleased with our charming hosts, Andy and Leah and with their B&B. To economize we chose the smallest of the rooms, Fire, but were not disappointed by the accommodations, which included a beautiful view, a clean and comfortable room, bath and walk-in closet. The price included a delicious homemade full breakfast each day, chocolates and toasted Filbert nuts at night, a porch with a magnificent view, a fire pit and more. Perhaps the best part was discussing with the hosts the vineyards and restaurants to visit and those we visited.
