Brad and David are the consummate B&B hosts...and the manor and its grounds were looking as beautiful, lush and serene as we had remembered from our previous stay. We stayed in the "Asian" themed room. The light is wonderful as it has a curved wall with windows and you really feel like you are in the tower room of your own mansion. It was wonderful just to sit on the sofa in the beautiful room and enjoy the complimentary refreshments and snacks they provide. As usual, the breakfasts were hearty and delicious! One of the special things Brad and David arranged as a surprise for us was to invite several winemakers to have breakfast with us on the first morning we stayed with them. They knew how as "wine geeks", we would get so much enjoyment from this experience. What a treat it was to get tips and advice from these experts...their suggestions led to us going to some tasting rooms that we had not previously considered (despite my extensive research)...which led to us bringing home even more wine than our last trip! One of the winemakers even dropped by the next day to give us a bottle of his wine which he thought we would enjoy. There are so many superlatives I could attribute to the Dundee Manor B&B...and I can think of only one small mark off (rooms 4 out of 5). Do be aware that the Manor is an impeccably restored heritage mansion...but as such, the bathrooms and closet space are limited. The fixtures are completely modern, but the sink in our room was actually in the room (not in the bathroom) and the hot water pressure was quite low as we were at the end of the hall on the top floor. For us, the local knowledge and connections that Brad and David have...matched with their warmth, professionalism, attention to detail and generosity, truly make the Dundee Manor B&B stand above all others! We enjoyed our trip so much that we may even head back again in a few months! Thank you Brad and David :-D

We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at the Manor and what a wonderful, beautiful event it was. We live on the East Coast and our daughter lives in McMinnville so planning across 3,000 miles was hectic at times. Brad and Dave were great to work with and were always available to answer questions (we did a lot of emailing!). The house and grounds are beautiful. Brad and Dave work closely with local vendors and their recommendations panned out perfectly. The bride and her bridesmaids checked in the day before the wedding and were treated like royalty. Brad and Dave prepared a beautiful and tasty breakfast for them the morning of the wedding and we were ready to start our day. The setting for the tables was just wonderful and very romantic and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. At the last minute I asked Brad to prepare breakfast for my son-in-laws family (the day after the wedding) and it was a feast for all, very much enjoyed. Brad and Dave are very gracious hosts.

Brad and Dave immediately made my wife and I feel like we were the most important people in town. More importantly, they did it as family would, not as businessmen would. Thanks Guys... Dale and Sue, 8/19-20
