Our historic farmhouse now Feller House Bed and Breakfast was built in 1865 on Oregon's French Prairie, near Champoeg State Heritage Area. It was there that Oregon's first settlers chose American style government over British and began the first organized government in the Pacific Northwest. Two delightful and tastefully decorated guest rooms await travelers as well as a cozy great room with wood stove and a special guest sitting room. Freshly ground and brewed Coffee will be ready and waiting for guests who are early risers. Our wholesome full breakfasts feature seasonal and homegrown produce as available and presented with a gourmet touch including fresh garnishes and edible flowers from the garden. Guests will enjoy fresh flowers from our gardens on the breakfast table and in rooms most of the year. We are located just two miles from I-5, 22 miles South of Portland and 22 miles North of Salem.

Best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed in. The beautiful setting, clean home, quaint décor, and comfortable atmosphere made for a perfect weekend! The breakfast was delicious and the portions perfect. Arnie and Barb know have a true gift of hospitality and make you feel a part of the family. There are attractions within ten miles, but we came for the antiquing just about two miles in downtown Aurora. We were not disappointed. Because Arnie and Barb are members of this community, they are very knowledgeable of the vendors and were spoken of very highly. We are fortunate to have found this treasure of a place to stay and felt safe.
Thank you for your kind review...it was our pleasure to have you stay at our B&B!

We were going to a family reunion and the Feller House was nearby. Arnie and Barb were very accommodating and let us check-in early and drop off the luggage before going to the reunion. The house has a wonderful historic past and wonderful care takers. Breakfast was amazing! We were treated to scones, fresh juice, quiche, and potatoes.

My wife and I stayed one night at the B&B. It is a beautiful, historic house that is very nicely done up inside. Barb and Arnie were friendly and attentive and accommodated my wife's gluten-free needs very ably. They are good conversationalists and have plenty of knowledge about the area, house, and gardening. If you like gardening, then you will especially love this place. They have an amazing garden and lovely landscaping. The food was wonderful, especially the pear-ginger jam. It was a great restful retreat to end a weekend before heading back to the bustle of everyday life

Barb and Arnie made us feel welcomed from the moment we pulled in the driveway. Located on a beautiful piece of land, overlooking an abundance of flowers, plants, gardens, and distance views of serene landscape. The outdoors was as warm and inviting as the home and breakfast to come. The bed and linens were soft and comfortable, just what we needed after our long travels. Breakfast was delicious, healthy, and filling. Made from ingredients harvested that morning, only the best and freshest foods were served. My wife and I were very happy with the Feller House Bed and Breakfast, and look forward to joining Barn and Arnie once again in the near future. Roy and Carrie Wisconsin, USA

Our second visit was a repeat of the first. Although there is a wonderful living room for guests we found ourselves around the fire in the kitchen/dining room enjoying wonderful conversation. We're looking forward to bringing friends to share this perfect little hideaway after a day in the Willamette Valley.
Thank you so much!

We went to The Feller House for our 45th anniversary adventure. Three lovely days with the gracious hosts, Barb & Arnie, in their lovely home. So much history in the area, and about the house itself. Furnishings were so quaint and comfortable. Food was amazing. The cute little town of Aurora was just a bit down the road and had great antique shops. Thanks to both of you for making our celebration so special. Blessings to you.

When was the last time you had breakfast made with eggs from the resident chickens and the greens coming straight out of the host's garden that very same morning? Slept like a rock............ had to drag my wife away from a pretty flower garden and some easy-flowing conversation so we could get back on the road. They have a great little place, why go to a motel when you can have it this way? We'll be back!

My partner and I biked with our boys (12 and 14) from northeast Portland, all the way to Eugene - and the Feller House B&B was the perfect spot to spend a first night. It is close to start of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway, only 40 riding miles from home on the route we chose (via Oregon City and Canby), and a beautiful, welcoming place to stay. We biked in hungry on a Sunday afternoon, thinking we might pick up dinner in nearby Donald - but quickly discovered that everything there was closed. Barb and Arnie instantly offered to drive us to the historic Butteville Store, where we stocked up on sandwiches, chips, and Oakshire IPA :) We ate a wonderful dinner in the garden, and enjoyed a stunning sunset from the room upstairs. In the morning, Barb and Arnie had great coffee ready, and a fantastic, filling breakfast that fueled us on our way to Salem. I'd highly recommend the Feller House. Can't say enough.
Thanks for the wonderful review.....we love our guests!

Bicycling with a friend from NE Portland to Monmouth, OR, southwest of Salem was quite an adventure, with our stay at the Feller House being the highlight of the whole trip. We covered about 90 miles in total so a friendly greeting, hot tea, and beautiful room with extremely comfy bed and an amazing FULL English-style breakfast the next morning was exactly what we needed at our half way point. Anyone biking the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway from Champoeg State Park to Salem could not ask for a better accommodation. The gardens are beautiful, the classic old house is charming and well-appointed but it's the little touches, like handmade quilts and fresh edible flowers on the breakfast plate that really puts it over the top. Thank you to Barb and Ernie for all your loving care. Susan and Laurel

Feller House B&B was peaceful, comfortable, delightful, and located in a beautiful setting. But what really makes it stand out is the exceptional guest service. When I made my reservation, I had told Barb that I had an unwieldy list of foods that I could not eat, and I suggested that she could just make me some scrambled tofu (yeast-free) or certified gluten-free oatmeal for breakfast. She went above and beyond on this, asking for details about what I could and could not eat, and going to the trouble to obtain locally sourced duck eggs and coconut-based yogurt for my breakfast. On both mornings, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Beyond breakfast and the house, Barb and Arnie are just lovely people to talk with. I was in town for businesses, but I would love to return and stay here again for a vacation.
