We have many areas for guests to enjoy a glass of wine, each other's company and the beautiful views that surround us!  The group above did not know each other when they arrived at the Inn, but soon found many things they had in common...including pizza for an impromptu picnic on the front lawn.  If you're more inclined toward a quieter setting, the back deck overlooking Mt. Hood is the perfect hideaway to read, nap or have a quiet conversation.  Linda

Restaurants to Visit While Staying With Us!

We have wonderful restaurants to recommend to guests in Oregon's Wine Country, and here are some of our favorites!  We send many guests to The Painted Lady, as we know they won't be disappointed.  Located in Newberg in an old, renovated Victorian home (pictured), they feature white linen cloths, european service (several wait staff serve your table), and a four course meal that can be paired with wines ($100/person) or without wines ($60/person).  A bit more on the spendy side, but well worth it.  Another new favorite in Newberg is Subterra Restaurant. Great food with reasonable prices. Other favorites we send guests to are Tina's, Dundee Bistro and Farm to Fork, all  located in Dundee.  And a little further drive down the road in Dayton, OR, and known for their specialty in mushrooms, is dinner at The Joel Palmer House. European and white linen cloths here, too. You can't go wrong at any of these restaurants. We will make dinner reservations for you, just let us know!

Recent Guest Reviews

The most wonderful people visit the Inn every year and we appreciate each and every one of you!  Here are some comments from just a few...

"Thank you very much for your warm hospitality; especially the wonderful breakfasts during my stay. The rooms were very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, only wishing that I could have spent more time experiencing the serenity of your beautiful Inn."  Connecticut

"Two ladies and I were fortunate to spend 2 nights at The DreamGivers' Inn. The Inn is located 6.5 miles from the Interstate 5, and 6 miles from the beginning of Wine Country.  The 4 upstairs rooms are quite plush with amazing country vineyard views. The common areas are well-equipped with comfy furniture. We spent both evenings rocking on the large covered front porch enjoying the sights and sounds of country living. Breakfast was very delicious! I have a few dietary restrictions and one of my friends eats vegan. Linda took both into consideration when preparing our meals - so thoughtful. Had an amazing time - maybe next time I will bring my husband!"  Vancouver, WA

"DreamGiver's Inn became a girls retreat for 4 sisters traveling from various parts of the US to re-connect in Oregon for a 3 day rendevous. We were hosted by a true 'mom' that took great care of us girls and understood each of our unique needs (from diet soda in the morning to ice for our wine at night). Linda and team have worked hard to decorate and design their B&B to be comfortable for all activities in a day - the porch is lovely for an early morning tea, the back deck is perfect for an evening filled with wine, cheese and laughs, the TV/Game room is a perfect comfort for a late night sister chat, the rooms are lovely and cozy for a good rest, and the morning brunch is too good for words. I have spent many nights in B&B's across the West Coast and found DreamGiver's to have serene energy that was much needed for our sister getaway. Thank you!"  Portland, Maine

"We spent one night at this beautiful & charming B&B and enjoyed our stay immensely. The innkeeper is wonderful & very personable. The entire house is beautifully decorated and the minute you step inside you feel a warm, comfortable ambience. And the snacks! You'll find yourself nibbling on delicious lemon scones or any number of treats and beverages that Linda has set out on the entry table for her guests. We enjoyed relaxing on the large, overstuffed sofas in the front room that has a magnificent stone fireplace and windows all around so that you can see the beautiful countryside in all directions.  Linda fixed a scruptious breakfast for us & we enjoyed sitting around the huge dining table & visiting with the other guests. If you want a quiet, peaceful, relaxing vacation, this is the place to stay. You won't find anything nicer anywhere in Oregon!"  Camas, WA
"We stayed there July 23-25.  Beautiful, comfortable rooms. Well-appointed baths. Linda serves a great breakfast. The Inn is on a quiet, isolated location, within 20 minutes of Willamette area restaurants and wineries. We stay at several BnB's a year. This one will be one of our favorites. Highly recommended."  Edison, NJ
