Guests Comment on Their First Trip to Oregon & The DreamGiver's Inn

First Trip to Oregon...After signing up for the Oregon Wine Country 1/2 marathon which takes place over Labor Day weekend, my girlfriend and I remembered we had a business card for an Oregon B & B... so I checked it out online to see if it was near the race location. Fortunately, it was only 20 minutes from the start line and it looked beautiful, so we booked their best room (Faith) for a 5 night vacation. We flew up from the Los Angeles area for our first time in Oregon.

Everything exceeded our expectations. Linda the Innkeeper provided incredible hospitality, a delicious breakfast every morning and the most helpful tips about where to go and what to see. She was also extremely accommodating to any special requests that guests had. The location is really central to wherever you want to go and the countryside with it's rolling hills is gorgeous. There are literally a hundred wineries in the heart of Pinot Noir country within 25 minutes. The coast is just over an hour away and Pacific City was the nicest little town. Portland is also less than an hour drive if you want some city life. Mount Hood is definitely farther but a beautiful drive and worth it. And if you are a runner, the race is extremely well organized and a ton of fun!

For a weekend getaway and adventure, or just a place to kick back and relax, you can get it at the DreamGiver's Inn. I certainly hope to get back in the future.   Todd & Eryn, California
