Red Ridge Farms / Durant Vineyards

We went to an industry event last evening at Red Ridge Farms/Durant Vineyards where we send many guests throughout the year! The views are fabulous, wines are wonderful (our favorite last night was the Olivia 2012 Pinot noir), and where you can shop their gift store and sample their olive oils (which are grown/produced at this location). Other neighborhood wineries of Durant Vineyards are De Ponte, Winters Hill, Vista Hills, White Rose--to name just a few. You could spend one day just tasting on this hill, and we recommend you do but be sure sure to stop in here as not only do you taste fabulous wines, but their olive oil tasting is a fun and fabulous experience, too!

Day Trip from The Inn - The Columbia Gorge

Many guests stay with us and take day trips from the Inn to see some of beautiful Oregon.  The magnificent Columbia Gorge is one we often suggest to guests, and is one of our "Seven Wonders of Oregon" (dubbed by Travel Oregon--Oregon's Tourism Agency).  Here's a photo below from Skamania Lodge that Kristen recently took (even stunning on a cloudy day).  Learn more about this natural wonder, and where you find many things to do along the way here:  Columbia Gorge.

County Living at its Finest

The Inn is situated on ten acres of beautiful grounds.  The one acre around the Inn is groomed every week by our trusted and gifted groundskeeper.  There is an array of colors close to the Inn as our landscaper designed it to showcase a variety of color spots/blooms throughout the year.  Yet our other nine acres is country living at its finest. It may be a bit more rustic, but beautiful in its own right, too.  We think we have the best of both worlds!  The clearest views of Mount Hood can be seen on the walking paths out in our fields.  So bring some good walking shoes to take it ALL in when you are staying with us.  Kristen & Linda

Spring is Here (Well Almost!)

What a great day we had today, and this photo was taken this afternoon by Linda.  We are going to have more days like this this week!  We Oregonians get so excited. The daffodils are in bloom, the tulips are on their way, and Mount Hood is still snow covered this time of year.  Our guests get to enjoy these views, with many spaces to relax and even walk on our 10 acres of grounds.  Kristen & Linda

Olive Oil Tasting at Red Ridge Farms

We send guests who want to try something different while visiting the valley to Red Ridge Farms to learn and taste about olive oil.  They grow and produce their own here, and it is yummy!  They also have a garden/gift center, and a wine tasting facility a short distance from their "Oregon Olive Mill" called Durant Vineyards.  One stop shopping here!  Here's the information about the olive oil tastings I took directly from their website:
