My parents gave my husband & me a night at Chehalem B&B as an anniversary gift. Knowing we're not the typical "victorian-doilies-country-kitchen" types, my mom chose this inn based on the photos from the web site: new construction, contemporary decor, loads of huge windows, and we were SO pleased with the place.
Kristin was baking granola when we arrived and the house smelled heavenly. Some of her comments were a bit off-putting (as others have noted), but we still felt at home and wished we could have lounged around the place more than we did. The location is up a windy hill (for that awesome view!) but not a far drive from a handful of wineries and restaurants. (We had dinner at The Painted Lady, another gift from parents.)
In addition to a spectacular view, the house has two living room areas for hanging out if the weather is bad and a spacious common deck (handy for whoever books the non-view "Oregon Trail" room). Our bed was comfortable, though it felt a bit futon-like. We slept quite well. The bathroom was spacious and well-appointed though the shower felt a little like a Bathfitters phone booth. The free Wi-Fi was a bonus.
We were so disappointed to have missed Kristin's breakfast as I had a hot air balloon ride early in the am. Co-owner Curt, who was quite enjoyable to speak with, surprised us with a DVD of photos he took of my hot air balloon as it was taking off. You can see the airfield from the B&B!
All in all a beautiful house and perfect location. We look forward to returning and actually having the Breakfast part!
