Awesome bed-and-breakfast

Wonderful breakfast and hospitality. The property has beautiful trails to walk!

Great first B&B experience!

My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B before because they seemed to not be our type of lodging. However, given how picky I am and the fact that there were no accommodations in the area that suited my tastes we decided to give Brookside Inn a try. We stayed in room 4. What a pleasant surprise! Not only was the room and bathroom nice, clean, and spacious but Jerry and Erika were fabulous hosts. It was great because the inn has only 6 rooms in a standalone home that has a kitchen, eating area, living room, and reading nook. The innkeepers are in there own separate home across the way. Erika makes a fabulous breakfast! Breakfast is ready around 8:30am. We had frittata with local bacon which was amazing as well as homemade scones made with strawberries from her garden. We were conveniently situated in wine country with tons of great wineries accessible within minutes. Try Bergstrom, Alexana, Domaine Serene, Domaine Drouhin, Argyle, De Ponte, and Sokol Blosser, which were all great! We tried others but these are must sees! Also some nice food in town. We are at Ruddick Wood which was really nice. We also had dinner at the Pink Lady, which was really fancy with a tasting menu style. All in all the experience at Brookside far exceeded our expectations! We absolutely loved the grounds, location, and our room. I cannot say enough good things! Just book it, you will love it!

AMAZING Experience!!

My wife and I needed a weekend away to recharge our marriage, and she heard about Brookside Inn on the radio. We decided it was the perfect getaway, and boy were we right!! This place is something special, unlike any place that we have ever seen. From the comfy rooms, to the amazing 22 acres, the delicious breakfasts and the onsite prayer house. In the 2 days we were there, we were able to relax, enjoy local wineries, and got time to connect without the noise of the city. If you need a weekend away, this is THE PLACE to go!!! Jerry and Erika are amazing people with huge hearts to see families and marriages thrive. We will spend many weekends away here :)

Lovely Bed and Breakfast Inn

Recently I had the opportunity to stay at the Brookside Inn while wine tasting in the surrounding Willamette valley. The Inn is in a picturesque wooded area with a few small hiking trails. The Inn is lovely and up-to-date. We used 3 of the 5 bedrooms as we were 6 adults. The property is run by Jerry and Erika who were great hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Brookside Inn, a wonderful spot to kick back and relax

My girlfriend and I headed to Wine country a couple months ago and choose the Brookeside Inn after several referrals. The property is beautiful, Bruce & Susan are awesome and they have 2 kick ass dogs. They also have 2 cats, one of which is extremely friendly! I will be staying here again when I head back to Oregon Wine Country!

My stay at Brookside Inn

The Inn was very quiet and relaxing. The hosts were very friendly and engaging. The breakfast was tasty and ample. A special feature was the outdoor fireplace.

The perfect place to stay!

This is the second time we've stayed at the Brookside, and from now on it's going to be the ONLY place we stay in wine country. Bruce and Susan are perfect hosts and were able to not only make reservations at wonderful restaurants for dinner, but to get us appointments to visit some of the smaller wineries. Everyone mentions the dogs....but for cat people, they have a charmer of an outdoor cat as well.

The Easy Life

The Easy Life (that is for the guests I mean). The owners of Brookside Abbey, Bruce, Susan and Mondo, made sure that we had everything we needed for a perfect stay in wine country. They allowed us to borrow their personal bicycles to cruise between the wineries. We shared smores and pinot noir with other guests by the fire pit one evening. They made reservations at all their favorite restuarants for us. Breakfast was wonderful each morning! I will not only suggest the inn to everyone I know travelling to the other but I will be back to visit as well.

great place to escape

What a great find, in the middle of beautiful wine country. I visited with friends after wine tasting but will go back next time for a romantic weekend. Bruce and Susan were so helpful and friendly, they even made our dinner reservations!
