Sunset Magazine recently proclaimed Chehalem Ridge B&B has "the most staggering views of wine country in the West. Period." Come find out for yourself! Perched on eight acres atop Chehalem Mountain overlooking the Willamette Valley and Coast Range, Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast offers a peaceful retreat between adventures. Venturing down to the valley, over 45 wineries are within a 20 minute drive from the B&B. Wine tasting, balloon rides, fine dining and summer weekends at the drive-in barely touch upon the range of possibilities available in exploring the Willamette Valley in Yamhill County. The contemporary house reflects the spirit, history and character of Oregon in each of the four bedrooms, each with queen-sized beds and private bathrooms. A full, gourmet breakfast, which can accommodate specific food allergies, is included. Winner of BedandBreakfast's "Best in the West" 2009-10!

We've stayed in a couple dozen B&Bs in Canada, the US, France, England, and Italy. And I think we have pretty high standards. Chehalem Ridge meets our standards, and then some. Our room, the High Desert Suite was certainly one of the finest we've stayed in. The view from the outside deck and the picture windows is stunning. Sadly, it was too cold to enjoy sitting outside, even the thoughtfully installed heaters were no match for the cool breezy and wet conditions. Not to worry, the fireplace took the chill off. Super comfortable bed, and the bedding and linens are of the finest quality we've seen in any level of accommodations anywhere in the world. Breakfasts are superb, with the only nit being we prefer our coffee stronger. Kristin was most helpful in suggesting wineries and local restaurants. She discreetly tailors her recommendation for the budget and palate of her guests. She also has a bit of a quirky sense of humour which we enjoyed. (Oh, don't be so Canadian!). Chehalem Ridge is high on a hill overlooking the city of Newberg. You wont be walking anywhere from here. You will be about 10-15 minutes to the nearest winery. But its peaceful and quiet, which means a great night's sleep, with a fantastic breakfast a great host, and fantastic views. We would highly recommend. Note that i have rated "met expectations" or "exceeded" in a couple of areas as opposed to "outstanding". Please dont take this as a negative in any way. As mentioned, we have high standards, and meeting them is a high hurdle. For example, value meeting our expectations means exactly that. You get what you pay for, and in the case of Chehalem Ridge, the price paid is precisley in line with the outstanding overall experience.

Everything was perfect. Coral was very welcoming and provided an amazing breakfast.. Sitting on our balcony watching the sun go down over the value, with a glass of wine, was the perfect end to a lovely day

My wife and I have stayed with Kristen three times now, usually as part of an anniversary celebration. The breakfasts are wonderful. The views are impressive. The place is warm and comforting. I'm sure we'll return next year.

My husband and I visited Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast over the Easter weekend and had a wonderful time! The Wine Country room in which we stayed was richly furnished with romantic, inviting decor; a whirlpool hot tub; and a breathtaking view. One of our favorite memories of the trip was falling asleep under the glow of the full moon, which was fully visible through our rooftop window. When not spending time in our room, we were either sipping wine by the relaxing fireplace in the downstairs common area, or exploring the beautiful city of Newberg. Kristin and Curt were both inviting hosts, and Kristin even printed out a brochure for us with details of a special event happening in Newberg that weekend. Kristin's cooking was to die for, and we especially loved the thoughtful touch of placing a chocolate bunny by our breakfast plates on Easter Sunday. Thank you for a perfect weekend--we will definitely be visiting again!

We were here to visit family over the Easter weekend. We arrived late, but had no trouble getting into our room. The view over the valley was breathtaking. The room was very spacious and the bed comfortable. The subtle touches, like the very comfortable robes and even the color changing nightlight added to our enjoyment of the room. The breakfast was creative and delicious. Kristin is an excellent cook! She spent time visiting with us and offered some suggestions for local activities. We flew 3,000 miles across the country to visit with family, but would do it again just to stay at this lovely retreat and enjoy the area.

We just recently visited this gem of a B&B for a weekend surprise birthday trip. I have to say this B&B was outstanding. I have stayed in quite a few in the New England area in the past and already had a high expectation of what I wanted in a Bed and Breakfast. This gorgeous home was well beyond any of my expectations. Our room (Wine room) was intimate and exquisite. The bedding was of the highest quality. The private patio that was heated was right out of a romantic novel. Kristin the inn keeper and owner was not only helpful but absolutely LOVED her personality. She knew that we were gluten free and made us special meals every morning. In the end we joked that we didn't want to recommend this place since we wanted to keep it all to ourselves. If you are in the area or looking for a great place to stay while wine tasting, this is the place for you.

The view from the Winery room was incredible. The rooms are not large, but are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Having bottle of wine on the room's balcony at sunset was breathtaking.

My wife and I stayed at the Chehalem Ridge B&B for the first time and booked the High Desert Suite. The property and room was fantastic, the service was fantastic, and the breakfast was seriously gourmet. We are looking forward to coming back regularly.
