This was such a wonderful get-away at the charming B and B. Peggy and Mike were very warm and friendly. They had wonderful suggestions for places to see and eat at. You don't want to miss the delicious breakfast in the morning. My hubby is still talking about the lemon rectors pancakes! Yum! Our little cottage had a private kitchen and bath as well as a lovely little patio that over looked the pond and pasture. Just beautiful! I will definitely be back!!
We were gifted a stay for our anniversary on short notice and found the Hopewell B&B nearby. Tucked in a quiet corner of the valley, Hopewell is very pastoral (there was literally a small field with cows next to the property) but convenient to Salem and McMinnville. After checking in, we enjoyed a wine tasting just a couple of miles away. The room was spacious and private, essentially a cottage connected to a larger building. The decor was definitely themed but very comfortable. We had a nice view from the private porch and the grounds were well kept. The hosts were very friendly and brought us our (optional) breakfast in our room. (Maybe a nice change for those who feel awkward sharing a meal with strangers.) I think we were the only guests that weekend anyway. One small ding on cleanliness was that I had to clean out old coffee and grounds before making coffee. The food was fresh and well prepared. We enjoyed our stay and would return.
Mike and Penny Walsh were excellent hosts. They provided local winery and restaurant information. The room was very clean and the breakfasts were excellent with great variety. I would recommend the Hopewell Bed & Breakfast to anyone visiting the Willamette Valley.
The room was large and very comfortable. If something we needed/wanted wasn't in the room (we wanted a highlighter), the Walsh's brought it to us immediately. The hosts could not have been nicer. The breakfasts were scrumptious. The back porch overlooking two ponds, a hill and gorgeous scenery was wonderful. Not far from McMinnville where you can get world-class dining---Italian and French, yum.
We stayed here for a few days of relaxation and wine tasting in the Willamette valley. The room was nicely decorated and had a pretty full complement of kitchen appliances including an oven, microwave, and refrigerator. The breakfasts were outstanding, and Mike and Penny were gracious hosts. I'd definitely recommend this place, and I plan to stay here again on my next trip to the Oregon wine country.
We went for one night to celebrate our anniversary. The room was cozy, private, and romantic (felt homey enough to really relax and be intimate). Breakfast the next morning was delicious, and the owner is delightful to talk to.
The Hopewell Bed and Breakfast was the highlight of our trip! The cottages are lovely, with comfortable beds and everything we needed for relaxing stay during our road trip through Oregon. The setting is amazing and there is a great running path nearby. Penny and Mike are delightful and very helpful. Highly recommended!
Hopewell B&B is so much more than just a B&B. It actually consists of two cottages located on a huge, secluded, farm-like property (cows included) in the middle of wine country. We had much more privacy than a typical B&B yet all of those homey, personal touches were present. Plus the owners, Penny and Mike, are the nicest people you'll ever meet. My husband and I stayed in the Lakeside room which was absolutely perfect. It is a fairly large cottage with a king-size bed, living room/TV area, equipped kitchen (no stove) and a very spacious bathroom area which includes a clawfoot tub and separate shower. The Pacific Northwest decor was perfect - so much better than that frilly, Victorian stuff. Penny even places a few pairs of the best socks I've ever worn in a basket near the couch to keep your tootsies warm. I visited two Fred Meyers stores (where she bought them) but I don't think they carry them any longer (whaaaaa!). We dined one night out on the large front porch which overlooks the pasture and a duck pond - a perfect place for stargazing (yes they supply binoculars too!). I can't forget to mention the awesome breakfasts they serve! Huge hot breakfasts accompanied by lots of fresh fruits, OJ and coffee or tea. This all may sound too good to be true but please trust this review! I have stayed in hundreds of hotel/B&B's and this is, by far, the best! And the price is so reasonable for what you get! The day before we stayed here, we paid $150 per night for your typical chain hotel room. So, if you want a couple of days (or more) of serenity to get away from it all (and as a bonus meet a couple of incredible people with a level of kindness that you rarely find in human beings), treat yourself to Hopewell B&B.
This place is great for touring the Willamette wine country....It is centrally located in the Salem, McMinnville, and Dundee triangle, where most of the wineries are located....They have two great cottages, that allow you to relax in a comfortable rural atmosphere...It is fun to wake up in a very comfortable bed to the sound of mooing cows and then getting a great breakfast to boot. Penny and Mike do an outstanding job! If we are ever in the valley again, we will certainly stay here.
My wife and I discovered the Hopewell Bed and Breakfast online and stayed for three nights. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast very enjoyable. Penny and Mike made our stay worthwhile. The B&B is right in the heart of Pinot Noir country with great vineyards and wineries nearby, close to the Evergreen Air and Space Museum, and also yarn and knitting shops that my wife must always visit. We heartily recommend the Hopewell B&B.
Mike & Penny are wonderful hosts. The breakfast they make for you is to die for! The 2 units are both roomy with large outdoor sitting areas. A perfect place for a weekend get-a-way or just an overnight in wine country. Bart & Betsy
Thanks to Mike and Penny for being such great hosts! We really enjoyed our time at their quiet getaway in hopewell. The beautiful setting was just a few minutes from McMinnville (and the spruce goose) and even closer to world class Pinot Noir vineyards. We'll definitely be back
The Walsh's Hopewell B&B represents THE best out there! The setting is bucolic and every single detail you can imagine is tended to. Mike and Penny are the hosts with the most, not to mention the lovely cows right outside your picture window and Buddy, their lovable Bull Terrier who accompanies them to deliver breakfast to your suite. Truly, a memorable experience! Joyce and Ang 7/13
We stayed in the Country Cottage which had anything and everything one could want in a place to stay....a stove, microwave, oven, refrigerator, sink, dishes.....a fantastic breakfast was served to us at the time we specified by Mike and Penny.....the bed was most comfortable and the bathroom large enough for 2 to be in there at the same time....the grounds are beautiful and we will definitely return...
My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights in the Lakeside Lodge at Hopewell Bed & Breakfast. The setting is secluded and beautiful, with terrific views of the surrounding landscape. Mike and Penny are friendly and gracious hosts. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the breakfast far surpassed my expectations. We had eggs Benedict the first day and waffles with scrambled eggs and bacon the 2nd day. There was plenty of fresh fruit, juice and coffee both days. And fresh whipped cream and real maple syrup for my waffles! Delicious, hot and served right in your room! Hopewell is a great location to bike from, and of course visit all of the terrific wineries in the area. We will definitely return for another weekend when we need to 'get away from it all' and soak up the peaceful landscape and surroundings of Hopewell B&B.
Generous size rooms, all the amenities, wonderful hosts, the breakfast was excellent (better than a lot of restaurants). Friendly warm couple. The grounds make you feel like your on a country farm with cattle off in the distance, and birds in the morning. The best value of our 5 days B&B week, I would visit them again.
My wife and I wanted to go on a Valentine's getaway. The Hopewell B&B was great! We stayed in a really nice cabin full of amenities. We definitely recommend it and we look forward to staying there again. Thank you Mike and Penny! Very beautiful property.
After reading previous reviews for the Hopewell B & B, my expectations were pretty high, and I was not disappointed! What a lovely, quiet, and relaxing place to stay. The Walsh's go out of their way to welcome you and take care of you. The breakfast was amazing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! This is the place to stay!!
Have stayed here twice in the last four years. I can only say that the pictures do not do the property justice as it is much more adorable than it initially appears. Though maybe I should be happy with that - makes it available when we travel! Mike and Penny were out of town when we stayed this most recent time, but their neighbor across the street was covering - very attentive, friendly and available for any questions we had. We have stayed in the Lakeside Lodge both times. It's very roomy with space to spread out and be comfortable. The view from the porch is so peaceful. It's calming to watch the cows in the field as they graze and move around. The breakfasts are very filling and certainly more tasty than those I have had at other locations. Try and have breakfast on the porch if the weather cooperates. Hopewell is a small town conveniently located close to anywhere you may want to go in the area. We have stayed twice, and would definitely stay again next time we are in the area.
First, the setting was spectacular, with ponds and pastures and beautiful gardens. Then the room was really nicely decorated and large with all of the amenities that you would need. You could even get a bottle of wine or beer while you were there. But then, there was Mike (the very nice and friendly owner - his wife was out of town ) and his scrumptuos breakfasts served on the patio overlooking the gardens. The 1st day he brought us eggs benedict & fresh fruit. The 2nd day, he brought us waffels, sausage, eggs, fresh peaches, whipped cream. Don't miss this place!!!! We didn't want to go home.
The manicured landscaping, the pond/waterfall, the breakfast, the room which was well equipped, the hot tub, the very nice lake, the firepit, the lovely arbor where we were served............all fantastic. The host and hostess, Mike and Penny, were so friendly........a very charming couple. The service we got from Mike and Penny is, in my opinion, rated as "Hospitality Plus."
