We stayed at the B&B in September for four nights. It is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Willamette Valley with stunning views. Rooms were well decorated, clean, and spacious. The breakfasts were superb with homemade jams and herbs picked from the garden. Thanks to Kristin for the gracious hospitality and for making our stay a memorable experience. We look forward to our next visit.

Following our first stay at Chehalem Ridge B&B, I can't imagine returning to Willamette Valley without making it our home base. A wonderful room with an incredible view overlooking wine country, delicious breakfasts and conveniently located close to our favorite wineries in Newberg and Dundee. We have stayed at other Inns in the area, paying more than twice as much, and were not as impressed as we were with Chehalem Ridge.

We spent two wonderful days at the Chehalem Ridge B&B a few weeks ago! The setting on top of the mountain provides spectacular views to the town of Newberg. Loved the private balcony outside our room...a great place for an evening glass of wine. Kristin prepared a gourmet breakfast each morning using herbs from her garden and local fresh ingredients...yum! The B&B provides all of the comforts of home. No detail was missed. Hope we can return someday when on the west coast again.

Absolutely incredible weekend!! The view of the whole Willamette Valley from my balcony was unbelievable. Breakfasts were incredible. Kristin mainly uses ingredients from her own garden, really ummy. She's an invaluable source of information on the local area, and various possibilities for wine tours. You can less expensive places to stay, but you won't beat the experience.

This was our second time staying here and it was just as fantastic as the first. In addition to gourmet breakfast, the views and locations can't be beat.

Beautiful views, yummy food, and knowledgeable hosts.

This bed and breakfast was amazing and had amazing views. The innkeeper was great. She was very knowledgable and helpful with places to go in the area.

Great view- we loved the Oregon room with balcony outside where we could sit and have wine & cheese in the evening . Breakfasts were amazing and held on the patio where we had fantastic views of the Oregon wine country.

The Chehalem Ridge B&B was a treat to stay at. It is located on the top of the mountain with amazing views. The room was very clean and the entire place has great décor. Kristin and Curt were great hosts and the breakfast food was amazing! I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to explore the Willamette Valley.
5 on August 12, 2015
I can not say enough great things about our stay here. My husband and I stayed in the High Desert Suite. It was an amazing room with a huge, personal balcony over looking the valley. It was so quiet even though the rest of the rooms were filled. Our breakfast was diverse, decadent, and served outside on the community balcony. The hosts were so knowledgable about the area and gave great suggestions for us. Even at the wineries we visited, people complimented the hosts of this B and B. I can not think of a thing I was missing here.

Amazing location! Great food! Beautiful scenery! Right in the middle of wine country. Great escape from the city! Recommend this place for anyone who loves great food and good wine!
4.4 on August 05, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at Chehalem Ridge. The view - both from the room and from breakfast - is breathtaking. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the food is wonderful. The owners have thought of everything that you might possibly need during your stay - there is a basket of chargers for various devices, sunglasses to borrow, picnic kits to borrow, binoculars, and many other small but thoughtful details. Chehalem Ridge was a great starting point for our wine tour, as the tour company was able to pick us up and drop us off at the B&B.
5 on August 02, 2015
Chehalem Ridge is absolutely the perfect place to stay while touring the Willamette Valley wine country. It is situated on a beautiful ridge overlooking the town of Newberg, always a nice breeze blowing to cool off a hot summer day. The house is spotless, and the rooms are wonderful. All that we saw have a view of the valley with small balconies. The breakfasts are incredible - very farm-to-table and perfectly prepared. The staff is friendly and were always aware of our privacy. Very nice lotions and bath products were provided. Bathrobes too! I highly recommend this place for your stay in this area.
5 on August 02, 2015
We couldn't ask for more! This B&B is beautiful, well maintained and in a great location! Kristin and Kurt have thought of everything, anticipating your every need! Kristin is a gourmet chef and we looked forward to our breakfasts daily! They were the highlight of the day. We enjoyed meeting many people during our visit, everyone was friendly and shared their travels daily. We hope to visit again sometime in the future!
4.0 on July 09, 2015
This is a very good B&B. The views alone are worth a stay, but the rooms are gracious, clean, and comfortable. The common areas are well-stocked and comfortable, with much information about local places to visit and to eat. The breakfasts were very good.
5 on June 08, 2015
We arrived right at sunset to the most amazing view of the city of Newberg! Not a place you would normally travel but definitely a place to go after staying at Chehalem! This B&B is not like you would normally expect, beautiful rooms that make you feel at home right away, tucked away in the middle of wine country! The views are spectacular and the food was to die for! My fiancé and I have very difficult dietary restrictions and Kristin was able to make us and all our friends a fabulous meal! We were ready to just stay in her dining room and eat all day!! It truly made for a great trip and we are glad that we stopped! It was our favorite spot to stay at!
4.8 on June 03, 2015
The only thing that could have been better was if we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!!
4.8 on June 01, 2015
This was our first trip to see wineries in the Willamette Valley, and this was the perfect "home base" from which to explore. The rooms are charming, clean, and very comfortable. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were spectacular (an egg souffle one day, lemon ricotta pancakes the other, both with fruit and breakfast pastries). Since the weather was nice we ate outside on the deck. Our room had a spectacular view of the valley (ask for a room with a view), our own little patio deck, and a huge tub! The B&B is up on a ridge, but it's a very reasonable drive to a lot of great wineries and terrific restaurants around Newberg and Dundee. Plus, you're a very short drive from a herd of about 150 llamas! Ask the innkeepers about coupons for some of the wineries (and also for wine shipping). Living in San Diego and having visited a lot of California wine areas, I think it might be easier to fly to Portland and drive to Chehalem Ridge than it is to get up to Napa or Sonoma. We'll definitely think about getting back there for the great wine and relaxing accommodations.
5 on June 01, 2015
We just got back from a visit to the Willamette valley to taste some of the fabulous 2012 Oregon pinot noirs. We stayed at the Chehalem Ridge B&B and had a terrific time celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary! The setting is idyllic on a cliff overlooking the Willamette Valley. I have attached a photo taken from our room. We stayed in the "High Desert Suite" which is on the lower floor; it is a large room with an extremely comfortable king size bed and a wall of windows overlooking the valley. It has an outside deck as well. The bathroom is roomy and has a whirlpool tub. Kristin's breakfasts were outstanding! She is also very knowledgeable about the various wineries in the region, and had great restaurant suggestions. We have frequently visited the Russian River valley wineries in the past, and always enjoy our visits, but this was our first visit to the Willamette Valley. It is much less crowded and more low key and the wines are terrific. We'll definitely be back, and when we come it'll be to stay at Chehalem Ridge!

We very much enjoyed our 2-night stay after Memorial Day weekend. The innkeeper was very concerned about our needs and very helpful in making plans for dinner, winery visits, and general exploring. We stayed in the Wine Country Room on the inn's uppermost floor. The room/sleeping area itself felt a little cramped due to the pitch of the ceiling, the bed itself very low to the floor. However, this perceived "smallness" was pleasantly WAY more than offset by the astonishing panoramic view from the room's full wall of windows looking south (?), as well as the very spacious bathroom with its own space-enhancing windows. The bathroom itself was gorgeous, the large jetted tub worth the room's reasonable cost alone. Exiting to the room's private deck was like stepping into an endless painting, on its own also worthy of the modest nightly rate. Breakfasts were quite tasty, neither skimpy nor overtly-generous, really hitting the mark. Ample, multiple common areas scattered throughout the inn were very functional and useful. We had a great, great stay!

This is a great B&B in an amazing location.
3.2 on May 28, 2015
Our breakfast had very little taste, blah. It was boring. Not even one element that made it a highlight. Though the view is outstanding and the inn spotless we won't stay here again.
5 on May 26, 2015
Food is amazing, view is amazing. Rooms are immaculate, perfect in every way. This B & B has everything you need and so much more. So comfortable, so beautiful, loved our entire stay! Can't wait to go back!
4.4 on May 23, 2015
We highly recommend the fantastic hospitality and bountiful homemade breakfast of Kristin. Also Kristin is very knowledgeable of the many wineries and their histories. But the view of the valley from the ridge is breathtaking. We had a wonderful 3 nights.
4.2 on May 18, 2015
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
5 on April 09, 2015
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!
5 on April 04, 2015
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.
5 on April 02, 2015
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.

We stayed in the Desert Suite which is the largest room for 4 days. This is our second visit & would come back again. Breakfast was awesome & could accomadate any type of diet. Spectacular views from every window with private outdoor balcony.

Had a wonderful weekend at this gorgeous place. Even in the winter, the view was amazing and the place was so well run. We are looking forward to going back!

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.

We spent a January weekend at Chehalem Ridge, and what a treat it was. Our suite was spacious, comfortable and featured outstanding views of the valley below. Breakfast both mornings was a real treat, featuring home made jams, and a satisfying range of sweet and savory. Kristin's background as a pastry chef comes through! We recommend CR B and B - can't wait to come back in the summer.
3.4 on December 29, 2014
All was perfect. We arrived late so we needed clear indication how to enter the house & room. It turned very simple thanks to smart ideas of Owners :) Also breakfast was very good. Owner showed up personally and was very kind and helpful. We were very satisfied and we definetely recommend Review Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast to everyone! R/T from Poland

Nice place in Willamette Wine Valley. Kristin and Kurt work hard to provide a comfortable bed and breakfast experience.

My wife and I spent a night at Chehalem Ridge and it was one our favorite nights while in Oregon. The room was spacious, the bathroom was elegant and inviting, and the views are breath taking. We highly recommend this B&B for any vacation to the Portland area.

We were here for part of our honeymoon, the room was outstanding and the view was beyond words. Breakfast was 5 star!
3.6 on October 26, 2014
The thing I don’t like about BedAndBreakfast.com’s review system is that a 3-dot means it met my expectations. You will see that a lot got a 3-dot. Chehalem Ridge did meet my expectations but understand I had high expectations and Kristin did not disappoint. I tried to write a good detailed review you could use. Well you can't in 2000 characters. Go to TripAdvisor for a better review.
4.6 on October 22, 2014
Breakfast on the deck is huge and includes many of her house made items. Yummy! Try to get a room on the view side. They've thought of everything.
4.6 on October 15, 2014
Loved it and loved the area! However we did not understand Kristen's behavior after our initial greeting in which she had end of the season brain. Minimal interaction after that with some abrupt comments and very little eye contact. We guessed she was letting her husband Chris take over for the weekend as he was delightful and very informative about the area!
4.6 on October 11, 2014
The views from this near mountain-top B&B are amazing. The oversize jetted tub/shower combination is very relaxing. Amenities throughout Chehalem Ridge B&B are high quality and a good value.
5 on October 09, 2014
We stayed two nights at Chehalem Ridge B&B in the Rose Room. Amazing views of Newberg, wonderful breakfast, and nice and quiet room. Curt and Kristin have truly thought about every last touch in the building of the wonderfully architected B&B. Highly recommend if you are in the area.
4.6 on October 05, 2014
Charming, well kept home in a fabulous location with great sunrise, sunset and daytime views. Close to all the the things to visit but feels like you've stepped away while you are there. Super clean. Great food. Plenty of things to help make your visit easy- restaurant menus, notes about things to do, a fabulous host with first-hand advice, books and games. We might try and return with friends and take-over the whole place.
5 on October 05, 2014
We went here based on the amazing reviews we read, and we are SOOO happy we did. It truly exceeded our expectations in every way. The view from the private deck is spectacular and the gourmet breakfastes are simply indescribable. The lovely Inn Keepers had the best suggestions for restaurants and wineries, which made our trip that much more enjoyable. We left feeling relaxed and recharged after this worry-free stay.
5 on October 03, 2014
Even though stayed one night, it was even way betterr than I expected. The view of sunset and night view were just great...Probably best view of Willamette Valley. The food and inkeepers' service was very exceptional as well. Really enjoyed stay there and will come back for sure!
5 on October 02, 2014
The lodge is beautiful! The scenery, as well as the accommodations were remarkable. The room was warm and ready for us. Breakfast was fantastic-truly gourmet! The owner was knowledgeable about the local wineries, and made great recommendations for things to do while in the area.

My friend and I were looking to have a girls weekend away and had searched wine areas in both WA and OR. We decided on Oregon for their amazing Pinot Noir wineries. As our trip planner, I went to the Willamette Winery Tourism site to get their recommendations for where to stay, what to do, where to go, etc. And I was not disappointed. I looked at several places to stay and when I read the reviews of Chehalem Ridge I knew I'd found the place. There were hundreds of reviews and they were all glowing, which is truly rare in travel. I decided I couldn't pass up an opportunity to see this for myself. I have to say, we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Oregon Coast room and were blown away by the views from the room and balcony. The beautiful valley below greeted us with hot air balloons in the morning and spectacular sunsets in the evening. The B&B is beautifully appointed with little extras that really made our stay seamless. From a wide variety of wine glasses, wine keys, cheese boards, etc., that were readily available in the bar area which allowed us to enjoy the wines we picked up along our visit, to the fresh cookies set out daily for our enjoyment, everything was impeccable and well suited to make our visit that much more comfortable and welcoming. On our first morning, our breakfast was a culinary triumph. Prosciutto wrapped melon w/a fig balsamic reduction, zucchini muffins made w/fresh ingredients from their amazing garden (and a basket of gluten free too!), hazelnut waffles, bacon, juice, coffee....everything was fresh, made to perfection and served with all the care and attention you'd expect from family. Everything they served was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. Curt and Kristin made everyone feel welcome and taken care of. I was so impressed w/everything and will definitely be recommending it to everyone I know, as well as returning in the future with more friends and my fiancé. Breathtaking Perfection!

My wife and I made the Chehalem Ridge B&B the last stop on our Oregon Wine Country trip in mid-September and I wish we had been able to stay longer. It's a beautiful place with a warm and relaxing atmosphere. The rooms were well appointed, the bathrooms were impeccable and I have to say the sheets were just downright otherworldly; best I've ever slept on. Kristin, the Innkeeper keeps the place immaculate and maintains a very zen atmosphere. In fact, when we walked in the door, I was greeted by the rich aroma coming from the kitchen (something she was preparing for breakfast the next morning, which I will get to in a minute) and softly playing spa music. And then there was breakfast. WOW! A stunningly presented two course taste-fest on a fork! It started with fresh squeezed OJ and a homemade roasted hazelnut granola, fruit (local plums) and yogurt parfait with fresh baked scones (Oh baby!) and capped off with a baked dish of eggs on a bed of zucchini and cheese. That was a new one on me, but it was superb! Bottom line is, we WILL be back.
5 on September 28, 2014
The B&B is on top of a ridge with a great view. The breakfasts were yummy. The rooms are well appointed and quiet. There are plenty of good area restaurants and lots to do.
5 on September 21, 2014
Beautiful well maintained house looking out over Newberg. Inn keepers were fantastic and the breakfast among the best ever. The handicapped accessible room was useful for my wife in a wheelchair. Would lower the bed a little. Access to the wine country was good and the restaurants in the area are excellent.
5 on September 20, 2014
We loved our stay at the Chehalem Ridge B&B. It's design and mountaintop location are magnificent and Curt and Kristen's hospitality and anticipation of every visitors need was simply outstanding. Our room, bathroom and the common areas have scenic views at every turn. But I've saved the best for last ... The delicious meals were the best we've had in any B&B across the country. We highly recommend staying at Chehalem Ridge B&B and we'll definitely stay here when we are in the area again.

Outstanding and friendly owners, fantastic view, wonderful room, and a breakfast to die for.

This place is so cute! I loved it! I wish we would have had time to stay a couple days.
3.8 on September 08, 2014
Loved the area and the view from the balcony where we were able to eat breakfast. Room did not have a view of the valley, unfortunately. Food was good. Compared to other B&B's we have stayed in, I didn't find the hospitality above and beyond what I have experienced in the past. Well kept. Would consider staying there again.
5 on September 05, 2014
This was out first time in Oregon and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The hillside location allowed for beautiful views while we ate breakfast outside and from our bedroom. Comfy beds and great food. Great location for visiting wineries and not too far from the Portland airport and downtown.
4.2 on September 01, 2014
Great location for Willamette Valley wine tasting; amazing views, and great breakfast and service!!

We stayed in the High Desert suite at the Chehalem Ridge B&B for a long weekend in August. The room was absolutely perfect, with a comfortable bed, a private deck and an outstanding view of the valley below. The property is extremely well kept and clean. Kristin is a wonderful hostess and an outstanding cook. She works with all local or homegrown produce. Our first breakfast included fresh melon, zucchini muffins and a tort made with freshly picked berries. The second day feature fresh baked scones and a salmon quiche. In addition, fresh baked cookies are always available in the common area. Kristin gladly accommodates gluten free and other restricted diets. Local maps and suggestions for hiking trails are available at Chehalem Ridge, as are backpacks and cooler packs for borrowing. Kristin also provided great suggestions for local wineries to visit and a local produce stand. We were truly sorry to leave. If you are going to be in the Newberg area of Oregon check out Chehalem Ridge B&B. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
4.6 on August 19, 2014
We stayed for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The view from our room, The Wine Country Room, was breathtaking...so much so that we cancelled our dinner reservations and bought food at a local deli and ate on our balcony, with a bottle of wine, of course. Kristin's breakfasts were fabulous and we met some very nice people.
4.2 on August 17, 2014
We stayed in the High Sierra room, it was the most spacious, yet cozy, luxurious B&B we have ever stayed in! The views were breath taking, the breakfast - one of the best we've ever had, and a perfect location in the middle of wine country. Kristen was a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. We definitely want to come back and spend more time in the area and and this B&B - highly recommend it!
5 on August 17, 2014
Beautiful B&B, lovely décor and furnishings, a spectacular view of the countryside and vineyards. No detail was overlooked by Kristin, down to sunglasses and sunscreen on the breakfast table on the deck. Delicious gourmet breakfast.
5 on August 05, 2014
We stayed at the Chehalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast as we were heading back to Seattle. It was extremely comfortable with several areas outside of our room to sit and read and enjoy the remarkable view! Our host was helpful, providing restaurant and wine tour recommendations. She also prepared the most delicious breakfasts! We hope to return.
5 on August 05, 2014
My wife and I just got back from our Oregon vacation, including three nights' stay at Chehalem Ridge B&B. What a spectacular location! Our room was charming and spotless, the bathroom luxurious (even included body wash and shampoo for those who like to pack light), and the bed was fantastically comfortable. Our hostess, Kristin, was very helpful and accommodating, including the way she anticipates guests' desires with homemade jams, wine chillers and bottles of water in the fridge and backpacks available for use. Every breakfast was delicious. Even the other guests were friendly! I don't know why I would stay anywhere else for a trip like this.
4.6 on August 05, 2014
Our stay was at Chehalem Ridge was great! Everything exceeded expectations, from the Comphy sheets to the tasty gourmet breakfast. We stayed in the Rose Garden room because I like to be on the top floor due to the noise that comes from above. The views were gorgeous from our balcony. The bathroom was quite spacious and extremely clean. The bed is lower to the floor, which wasn't a problem for us but it could be for someone that may need a higher bed. The main living area has small refrigerator and wet bar for all you wine drinking and small dining needs. We went to a deli and bought cheese, meat, and bread and had our own little feast on the balcony with other guests we met on our stay. Kristin makes the best gourmet breakfast to start your day! You will not go hungry! The area has a lot to offer in wine tasting. If you are looking for something else to do, just a couple of hours in the car can get you to Mt hood and Columbia River Gorge. We did some great hiking on two day trips we took to theses areas. Left after our 8:00 breakfast and could be back by 3:00 for some tastings.
4.8 on August 04, 2014
My wife and I were here before, had a spectacular time, and made a point of returning for another long romantic weekend -- and this B&B continues to be great! The location and accommodations are fantastic, the breakfast is as good as it gets, and the Kristin is very savvy, keeps up to date, and shares freely her knowledge and opinions about great places to visit and eat. All that, plus lovely amenities and easy accessibility to world class wine (eg, Argyle; De Ponte) and dine (eg, Painted Lady). Very highly recommended.
5 on August 03, 2014
My wife and I go to Oregon frequently throughout the year and we always make sure that we stay with Kristin and Kurt when we're in the Willamette Valley. The views from the B&B are breathtaking, the rooms are quiet, comfortable and relaxing. The various decks, common sitting room and overall ambiance of the B&B makes for a great escape. Then there’s the lady of the house, Kristin. She’s the best. When you arrive you’re welcomed with a smile, freshly baked cookies and everything you could need for your stay. There are maps of the area. Kristin has thought of many of the various accoutrements you might need for a trip out into the valley, i.e. backpacks with picnic supplies, water, sunglasses, etc. Both Kristin and her husband, Kurt are very knowledgeable about the area, restaurants, wineries, events and just about anything that your heart desires. And then there are the breakfasts…Fantastic! Kristin is amazing in the kitchen. The breakfasts come in two courses and are always accompanied by plenty of coffee, tea, juice and homemade jams/jellies. Kristin does a fabulous job of sourcing her ingredients from her own garden on the property and from the Pacific Northwest. There is never a lack of lively conversation or laughter. My wife and I couldn't recommend this B&B more. If you’re planning a trip to the Willamette Valley, a stay at the Chehalem Ridge B&B is a must.
5 on August 03, 2014
The breakfast is delicious, and the views are phenomenal. The highlight of our stay was meeting great new people, and enjoying the recently purchased Pinot Noirs from the local wineries on the balcony with them. You will not be disappointed!

We were here for our 10th Anniversary and had such a wonderful, relaxing time! The view is spectacular and the food was divine. Brought one of our bottles of wine back and sat on the balcony and watched the sun set. It was so wonderful! We were in the only room without a private balcony, but we didn't miss it at all since there was a common one for our use. We'd definitely go back - maybe with a group of couples!
4.0 on July 26, 2014
The location was perfect. We had a sweeping view of wine country. The room was great. Loved the IR lamp on the balcony. Would have been nice to have a small table in there to put items on instead of crowding up the bedside stands or puttimg things on the floor. Food was very good but the quantity was so little. You shoulf offer extra fruit, yogurt muffins etc for us hungrier folks. Also Kristen seemed so uninterested in hosting. Maybe something had just happened to her but she seemed clinically depressed. Good stay overall. I would definitely come back.

What a gorgeous spot for a night (or two or three) in Oregon's wine country. Overlooking the valley below, visitors get an unspoiled view of one of the most beautiful parts of the state. Luckily each, if not most, rooms have a private terrace on which to enjoy the scenery any time. The owners are thoughtful--having heat lamps on each balcony, loads of resources on local attractions and happily meeting any dietary restrictions for breakfast. Freshly baked cookies and access to picnic containers are other ways in which the owners have exercised thought and a personal touch. While the room we stayed in was not huge, it's comfortable and well appointed. The food was good and I appreciated the two breakfast seatings--8:00 and 9:00. Overall, I'd recommend Chehalem Ridge to others who want to spend a weekend away in one Oregon's treasured parts of the state.

We stayed in the High Desert room for 2 nights on a recent visit to Oregon wine country. The room was elegant with very nice touches at the B&B overall-free cold water whenever, dishes and silverware and a mini fridge for white wine storage in the common living room for in room/on balcony alfresco eating, great advice on wineries to visit. Great place and great experience.

Chehalem Ridge B&B has the most magnificent location overlooking the beautiful Willamette Valley. We stayed 3 nights and were treated to the most outstanding gourmet breakfast served on the patio each morning. The house is spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed, and run very efficiently. We had access to a refrigerator and there were home baked cookies to snack on. .Kristin, the host, provided information about the area, even having local restaurant menus available. The area is gorgeous with lots to do and see. Highly recommend this B&B and also the area as a must to visit!

We stayed for one night shortly after the July 4th holiday in the Wine Country room. Wow - what a view, comfy bed, and great restroom. The food was delicious and the property amazing. We will def. be back whenever we're back in Oregon wine areas!

We stayed in the Desert Suite and it was even better than we could have imagined. With panoramic views of the valley from the comfort of bed or out on the deck, this place really is a perfect place to stay when visiting the Willamette Valley. If there weren't so many wineries to visit, we could have easily spent all day in our room enjoying the luxurious amenities. Jacuzzi tub, heated tile floors in the bathroom, bedside fireplace, huge comfortable bed...Don't even get us started on the amazing breakfasts that Kristin creatively imagined up for us and that Curt so expertly served. These were the best breakfasts of any place we ate on our entire time in Oregon. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel right at home. Kristin greeted us with a map of the area and a handful of suggestions of wineries to visit while our room was being prepared. And that level of hospitality was apparent throughout our stay. If you're planning a trip to the Willamette Valley, this is the place to stay.

This is a splendid Bed & Breakfast. The view from the hill/mountain top is dazzling and we were lucky enough to have breakfast on the porch to take it in. The breakfast food is different everyday and the type of 5 star restaurants in Los Angeles, New York, and Nashville. Just go ahead and book it.

Beautiful B&B - the views are just amazing !! The room was small but extremely cute. The bathroom was big -shower had no power - just dripping away. Breaksfast on terrace was stunning - my husband however was hungry afterwards, Portions were ladylike and no afters offered Anytime again !!!! I cannot score Dining-it is a B&B afterall...
Thanks for taking time to review your stay with us. As we live and breathe hospitality, our goal is to meet our guests' expectations. It really, really bums me out when we don't. I can only guess which room you may stayed in, but rest assured, all our showers work great. If there was a momentary problem or difficulty understanding our shower, we would have loved to help so that you could enjoy your time with us. As for breakfast, most guests remark how they don't need lunch after our breakfasts of fresh baked goods, a local fruit dish and an entrée. I do so wish that when I asked if there was anything else I could get anybody, you would have spoken up. I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations and would have really loved to hear about these issues while you were here to have the chance to fix them and make your vacation the best.

We selected this B&B because we had never tried one and we were looking for a location close to the Sherwood location of our family wedding. We were blown away by how much we loved the B&B experience and specifically the beauty of this particular location. The food was amazing as well!! We will definitely be back.

I can not say enough about Chehalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast. I am telling all my family and friends that they need to stay here. First, the view is spectacular and the tranquility is wonderful. It is perfectly located, so close to Portland and Willamette Valley wineries. The house is gorgeous. Kristin, the Innkeeper, has thought of every detail to make her guests feel pampered and comfortable. The rooms are creatively decorated, the beds are comfy, and the common areas are inviting. And the best part of all is the breakfast; delicious, gourmet, made from scratch with local ingredients, and different every morning. I would live here if I could afford it! But staying here for a few nights will not break the bank.
4.8 on June 21, 2014
Had a wonderful 2 night stay at this lovely place in the wine country. Conveniently located just outside of Newburg, but remote enough to feel like you are really getting away from it all. Adored our private deck overlooking the lush valley. Every detail was carefully considered and things were extremely clean. Breakfast was a delicious treat with lots of homemade touches. Will definitely be back.
5 on June 20, 2014
Can't say enough good things about Chehalem Ridge B&B. The view is amazing. The food was delishious. The bed was very comfortable. The whole place was very clean and inviting. My favorite thing was that they put heaters on the deck. It was a little chilly the night we were there but we were able to still sit out on the deck and enjoy some wine and cheese. We stayed in the Oregon Trail room. Had a nice jacuzzi tub. We stayed in 3 different B&Bs in Oregon and this one was my favorite.

Very clean and comfortable. View is amazing and the breakfasts are delicious. Very convenient to wineries.

My wife and I had traveled to Newberg 2 years ago and decided to go back while in Portland for her birthday. I came across Chahalem Tidge and was very pleased with our stay. Kristen was able to give a good recommendation for a car service for a day of wine tasting prior to our arrival. The inn is a peaceful and stunning property. The view is amazing not just from the deck but from all over the house. Breakfast was excellent and the room had generous space. My wife really wants to buy the sheets from our room! Great time and we would definitely stay again on next trip. BTW, if you are going then I suggest this time of year (early june)and I almost forgot to mention all the wineries in and around Newberg. Like I said this was our second trip and the wineries are everywhere. The wine is very surprising in a great way. This coming from someone who frequents the Napa/Anderson/Sonoma and Alexander wine country areas. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy chardonnay and pinot. and there were zero crowds on a Sunday.
4.8 on June 09, 2014
Great location, outstanding view, just a hop down to Newberg for dinner. Service was great and every small detail was attended to. Breakfast was delightful, made from scratch including the bread and jellies.
5 on May 29, 2014
We stayed for 2 nights and everything was perfect. Everyone was so nice and the location was beautiful. The breakfasts were amazing both mornings. Would definitely stay here again!
4.6 on May 28, 2014
We enjoyed our first stay at Chehalem Ridge B&B. Good welcome, fine room, amazing views of the valley from our balcony. The breakfasts were really fine, a fruit course, a bread course, and a main course, different every day. Friendly hosts, enjoyable conversations with other guests about fave wine-tasting choices. Bring your GPS and you will have no problem finding it. Without GPS, not so easy.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. We are happy that you had a great time staying with us and enjoyed our breakfasts. I would like to let folks know that we do send directions out with our confirmation, and they are on our website as well. Some GPS units actually take you on the "scenic" route and we highly suggest using our directions which takes you into Newberg in just 10 minutes with just a few turns.
5 on May 19, 2014
This by far was the best B & B we've ever stayed at in any state of the union!!! The view was incredible, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the food was fantastic. This is an experience you don't want to miss as you travel through Oregon wine country!!
5 on May 12, 2014
As return visitors, we always meet other return visitors. Its that good. What a great getaway...we absolutely love this place!

The views are spectacular - the breakfasts are outstanding - will definitely visit again!

We stayed in the Oregon Coast room. At first I was like, do I want a room that looks like the beach when I'm staying in the hills? Really though it was the private patio, view from the windows and fireplace that drew me. Wraparound windows allow an amazing view from that room, and the little patio with table and chairs got some use as soon as we got there with our first bottle of Pinot Noir with some cheese and salami. Good thing too because later in the weekend we instead curled up inside with the fireplace as a rain and windstorm came through. Note that the fireplace wasn't working at first and the innkeeper got it going again fast. The bed is comfortable, the pillows also, and the bathroom is really nice with sea foams and blues - reminiscent of the ocean of course but also calm relaxing colors. There was tons of information available - road maps, running/hiking trail maps, winery maps, restaurant recommendations, etc. Ask the innkeepers for winery and restaurant recommendations - they know the good ones! So this leads me to breakfast. There is nothing better than chefs and innkeepers who cook with the seasons and use the local produce. In this case it was asparagus and rhubarb incorporated into the food. Breakfast was two courses, a ginger rhubarb crumble on one day and a kiwi hazelnut parfait on the other, followed by an egg dish one day and baked French toast the other. Plenty of decent coffee was available along with tea and juice. There was always water in the refrigerator and yummy cookies to snack on anytime. Breakfast also included homemade jams, some flavors I had never seen before, along with a liberal sprinkling of winery and restaurant advice and conversation with the innkeepers and other guests. We really enjoyed the stay there!
4.6 on April 25, 2014
We found Chehalem on a long weekend to the Willamette Valley and were very pleased by the B&B itself, but also by the Innkeepers who have us a warm welcome and much help and advice about the area. The room was wonderful and the views over the valley superb. We would certainly want to stay there again when in that area.
5 on April 24, 2014
Great view, good location to local wineries, good breakfast.
4.4 on April 23, 2014
Chehalem Ridge is a good staging point for a visit to Willamette Wine Country. The property is relatively new and in very good condition. Kristen was friendly and responsive to requests and had good advice for wineries to visit and places in the area to eat. Would definitely stay there again.
5 on April 22, 2014
All the personal touches that have gone into making your stay enjoyable is the difference here. They have thought of everything. Beautiful rooms in an outstanding location. Curt and Kristin couldn't have been friendlier. Delicious, simple, gourmet breakfasts served each morning is the perfect start to a day. Can't wait to go back!
5 on April 11, 2014
I am often in OR on business and whenever possible I stay a night at the Chehalem Ridge B&B. The atmosphere is so nice that it really doesn't feel like a work trip. Each time I stay in a different one of their themed rooms. On this, my third visit, I may have found my favorite...the Wine Country room. With a 2 person jetted bath tub and the most comfortable robe I've ever worn, I felt very relaxed. And breakfast is always something I look forward to as Innkeeper, Kristin, is quite the chef. The others that stay are most often on vacation, tourning the wineries and restaurants of the Newberg area. I have always met the nicest and most interesting people during my stays. All this to say I recommend this charming B&B highly and am planning a vacation there myself.
4.8 on April 06, 2014
Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, delicious food, friendly owners. What more could you ask for?
3.8 on April 03, 2014
A lovely B&B, very comfortable, very hospitable hosts, wonderful views and exceptionally well appointed rooms. I can think of no negatives at all and wold strongly advise anyone visiting this region to consider this B&B as home base.
4.4 on April 01, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at Chehalem Ridge B&B. It was an easy ride from downtown Portland, after dinner, and a very good place to begin our Willamette Valley exploration the next morning. The Inn is clean, pleasant, and comfortable. We had a nice breakfast and a chat with lovely Kristin. You will be well taken care of there.
5 on March 02, 2014
Went there for Valentine's weekend, best ever!

We had a wondpnderful night in your newest room to celebrate my birthday. The service was excellent and we loved he selection of games that kept us busy with old school fun. We will definitely be back
4.2 on February 01, 2014
We found this jewel at the last minute and were very fortunate they could accommodate our group. The view is fabulous and the breakfast was amazing. The hostess was engaging and made us feel welcome. We will recommend this to friends and we hope to stay there again in the near future.

fantastic location really beautiful, the view is spectacular, despite the fog and the clouds. Looking forward to returning in the summer or fall from Chicago.

Wonderful, relaxing stay in a beautifully appointed bed and breakfast. Fabulous food, centrally located near tons of wineries and great dining. We have already booked for next year!
5 on November 28, 2013
The view was beautiful and the hospitality over the top! Our first choice every time we are in the area!

Chehalem Ridge had everything we look for in a B & B. As residents of Seattle, we make a point of traveling to a nearby destination each year for my birthday (the gift of experiences), in this case the Willamette wine region and to the McMinnville air & space museum. The location of this B & B was ideal for visits to both. On a Fall Saturday, we had time to explore both the museum and visit three wineries (we visited two wineries on the previous day). The museum and wineries were exceptional. Kristin and Curt are great hosts. Kristin's coconut macaroon cookies are delicious and her breakfasts included local ingredients such as local eggs, vegetables, etc. The scones with home made pinot grape jelly were very good. Kristin is a fine chef and Curt is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. A feature of B & B's is sharing breakfast with other travelers. We met some of the nicest folks during our stay -- I think this was the most memorable part of our stay. Having just said that, the accommodations are first class and the view of the surrounding valley is second to none. I look forward to visiting again.
5 on November 06, 2013
My husband and I recently stayed at Chehalem Ridge B&B while touring Oregon wine country. The Innkeepers were helpful, friendly and welcoming and prepared delicious gourmet 3-course breakfasts each morning. The views from the property are breathtaking and the inn is cozy and comfy. I couldn't image staying anywhere else in the region. Its proximity to the great restaurants of Newberg and Dundee and fantastic wineries make it the perfect place to stay while exploring the region. I highly recommend this property!
5 on November 05, 2013
Great view, enjoyed sipping wine on our private terrace.
4.6 on November 02, 2013
This is a remarkable B&B for comfort and attention to detail. We stayed in the High Desert Suite which is fabulous - a wall of windows facing out over the valley, fireplace, sumptuous bed, fabulous jetted two-person tub, covered deck with radiant heater for cool mornings/evenings. Almost everything we thought we might need was present. The breakfast was delicious. Kristin is a no-nonsense host (not your "let's sit and visit" sort of host), but provides whatever you need. Don't miss staying here.
5 on October 28, 2013
My wife and I took a trip up to Oregon and wanted to stay at the perfect place. We found it in Chehalem Ridge B&B. It was clean, it was friendly, it had the most beautiful morning sunrise I'd ever seen from a balcony. Kristin was very accommodating, as my wife has a gluten intolerance, so she took every precaution in preparing a gluten free meal for her. Gluten free or not, breakfasts were outstanding. Kristin and her husband were very friendly in helping us along our daily journey, giving us advice on where to go based on our interests and pointing us towards to the best wineries in the area. All in all, a great place to go, run by friendly knowledgeable individuals. I hope to be back!
3.8 on October 27, 2013
Our hosts were as warm and welcoming as their elegantly tailored home. There was a fire going and soft music playing when we arrived. The views from every room of the house are beautiful. The beds are very comfortable and the linen exquisite. We helped ourselves to cookies and coco before dinner, there was wine and tea available too. Our hosts were ready to give dining and entertainment recommendations and checked our directions before we headed out. Breakfast was served with all our dietary needs in mind and was so delicious.
4.6 on October 26, 2013
A nice B&B with a great view of the valley. Small but cozy. Wonderful inn keepers.
5 on October 23, 2013
One of the best places to stay...period. We had a beautiful time when we were in Newberg. Kristen and Curt were so helpful with suggestions on what to do, where to eat and how to make the most of our short time in the area. An absolute highlight of our Pacific Northwest trip!
4.2 on October 18, 2013
Pros: The decor was classy, without being over the top "girly." The breakfast was world class. The beds were a very comfortable memory foam. The location was quiet and secluded, but not too far from lively McMinneville. Cons: A bit pricey for little more than a room with few extra amenities. The old-timey clawfoot bathtub, which was lovely to look at, was a huge disappointment, taking 25 minutes to fill 10 inches of barely hot water, with the overflow valve positioned so low on the tub that the water drains before it ever covers your navel.
4.8 on October 17, 2013
If you are looking for a B & B with every detail thought out....beautiful vistas, incredible breakfasts, and close to some of Oregon's most outstanding wineries.....this is the place!!! Our first trip to the Willamette Valley and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.
4.8 on October 08, 2013
The setting of Chahalem Ridge is breathtaking and tempts one to want to just sit back and relax reading a book with a good glass of pinot noir from the area. The place is very nicely decorated, very clean and most comfortable. The views are stunning day and night. Kristin has a great sense of humor and cooks a mean breakfast. I would recommend Chahalem Ridge to anyone. Biker Boy
5 on October 07, 2013
The room was large, the amenities were many, and the view of the entire valley below was picture-book perfect. To see the fog lift in the early morning and enjoy the view from the outside balcony was breathtaking.

Amazing views all around. Very lovely room that you will feel right in home in.
4.6 on September 28, 2013
We were checking in late and they could not have made the process any easier! It's a beautiful property. The photos are very nice but don't do it justice! Would recommend to anyone!

Our breakfast both mornings were outstanding. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. Cold water, cookies and wine glasses were provide as well. Kristin was willing to answer any questions you had. She was very attentive. It was a very enjoyable stay and we will be back!
4.8 on September 27, 2013
The rooms are very comfortable, the view superb and the breakfast was excellent.
4.2 on September 23, 2013
Very relaxing and peaceful to sit on the room's private balcony and sip local wine as the sun sets behind the ridge and darkness settles in the valley. Hustled back from a day trip to the coast just so we could spend the last couple hours of daylight doing just that.
5 on September 22, 2013
Kristen did a great job of appointing the BnB with all of the extras you don't expect but are nice to have. The breakfasts were from locally produced foods and prepared deliciously. And as expected the view was superb!
5 on September 22, 2013
We stayed for our 12th anniversary and definitely plan on returning. Very friendly, clean, and simply beautiful.
5 on September 14, 2013
We found everything to be excellent. If I had to be critical I would say that the owner did not have that bubbly personality you come to expect at a B & B, but she more than made up for it with her culinary skills. The breakfast was the best! True gourmet! I would recommend this B & B and hope to revisit in the future!
4.0 on September 13, 2013
Very knowledgeable innkeeper, but has an edge that can be irritating. Great views from our room and the front decks. Breakfast area comfortable but without the views.
5 on September 10, 2013
The property is amazing. The views, when the clouds blew off are spectacular. The breakfast that Kristin and Coral served were unbelievable. We were on our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay......
4.6 on September 10, 2013
Amazing view, great rooms, excellent staff, delicious food, it doesn't get and better than Chelalem Ridge B&B.
5 on September 04, 2013
Spectacular view! Comfortable and quiet accommodations. The breakfast was probably the best I've ever had. Cookies were freshly baked daily. All in all the best (and only) B&B experience I've had. I would definitely go back if I'm ever in the Oregon area. Stayed in the wine country room and the two person jetted hot tub made our day!
5 on September 03, 2013
Wonderful stay - great location, outstanding breakfast and Kristen was most helpful with suggestions/maps, etc.
4.4 on September 03, 2013
We stayed in the High Dessert room, and it was superb luxury. The room and bathroom were top notch. Even had heated tile flooring! The views are unparalleled. They think of everything, including candles in the bathroom and a USB charging cable. My only minor complaint is the Internet speed is about 1mb/s, but that may be all they can get in that area. Thank you for a night to remember!
4.4 on September 01, 2013
My husband and I had a lovely time at this B&B with expansive views of the valley. The rooms were charming (and very clean) and the breakfasts were fantastic (especially the french toast rolls filled with figs and brie). A great place to stay if you are looking to visit the area.
4.8 on September 01, 2013
The breakfast was wonderful each day. The view from the private balcony was absolutely stunning.

Great views!!!! Fresh foods, local, creative !!! Very, very nice room and amenities! Definitely will stay again.
4.6 on August 27, 2013
My wife and I stayed at the Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast for a quick getaway and couldn't have had a better experience. Amazing views, very clean and the owners think of everything - and prepare a garden to table breakfast as well. We highly recommend it. -Matthew J. and Laura O'Neill

Chehalem Ridge was a great find. An absolutely incredible view, well appointed rooms and fantastic food. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer!
4.4 on August 26, 2013
My wife and I had a truly wonderful time here. The highlights were definitely the view from the Rose Garden room and Kristin's amazing breakfasts. I personally loved the remoteness of the location but yet the immediacy to which you could get to things. This B&B is for people who like country charm. You can hear others but there aren't any TVs in the room and people tend to sleep around the same times so it wasn't an issue. We would stay there again.
5 on August 26, 2013
Our stay at Chehalem bed and breakfast was great! The room was nice and clean, as was the grounds. The breakfast was delicious and fresh! Awesome location, close to plenty of wineries.
5 on August 25, 2013
We have never had less than a pleasant stay at the Chehalem Ridge B&B. The view is exceptional, the ambiance is relaxing, and the breakfast is always special.
4.6 on August 21, 2013
The view is even more beautiful than their advertisement. Coffee was ready at 6am, and there were 2 seating choices for breakfast. Homemade jams from fruits from the owner's garden made it extra special. We stayed two nights and both meals were superb. The egg dish with fresh squash was so flavorful, I was impressed. Although a bit small, the bedroom was nicely decorated and the bed was super comfy. Loved the large shower in the bathroom.
5 on August 20, 2013
The gorgeous view over the entire valley from our balcony and huge windows was breathtaking. The room was beautifully furnished, and clean in every respect. Breakfast was very nicely served ... multi-course gourmet.
4.6 on August 19, 2013
We had a wonderful stay in the Oregon Trail room. Everything was clean, quiet, and inviting. The room was very charming. Our favorite part was breakfast! Every morning, there was something delicious and all the ingredients were super fresh and tasty. The view is breath taking. We will definitely be back!
5 on August 19, 2013
This was a return visit for my wife and I. Kristin was an exceptional hostess as always. Breakfast on the deck was a great way to start both mornings. The gluten free coffee cake was out of this world. Wish we could have had a second one! Great dining and winery recommendations as well. We are already working on a return trip.
5 on August 18, 2013
Quiet location, stunningly gorgeous views looking down on the valley, and charming rooms, each with its own personality, are just a few of the reasons to pick this property if you're in Willamette Valley wine country. We are two couples in 40's to 50's who started our mornings viewing the sun rising over the ridge from the left side of the main floor deck. Breakfast was unique each day, using many organic and locally sourced ingredients. We were big fans of the hazelnut belgian waffles with blueberry compote, not to mention the fresh baked breads and muffins, along with edible flowers each day. Kristin was a very accommodating innkeeper, and was careful to ask about food preferences and allergies. They really think of everything here. Custom laminated maps of the local areas that you can draw on, and how to get to nearby places; restaurant menus, a mini wine bar with microwave, mini-fridge, glassware, and utensils; wine bottle coolers and picnic backpacks to borrow which included plates and wine glasses; binoculars for viewing the valley; even a basket full of sunscreen and sunglasses for the sunny mornings on the deck; clean, comfortable, contemporary rooms; infrared heaters for the balconies and decks. This place is an absolute can't miss, we would definitely go back. BB and MO from Atlanta.

Wonderful room with a private deck with a great view. The breakfasts were gourmet and amazing!
3.6 on August 01, 2013
Facilities: Location is an excellent base for exploring the wine country. We stayed in the Rose Garden room because we wanted a walk in shower. Room was clean with a lovely balcony. View from this room and all rooms facing the valley are extraordinary. The bath amenities were first rate. Cons: only 1 small chair in the room making it difficult for both os us to sit and visit inside esp in the evening when it was often too windy to sit on the balcony. Due to eaves, bed was lowered; box spring and mattress were on the floor so the bed was uncomfortably low. Likewise closet is under the eaves, not full height and requiring bending. Felt a bit like being a giant in pixie room and we are short. Shower was fine for us, but taller people might find it too low. Innkeeper and food: Kristin is encyclopedic about the area and the world in general. Amazingly well organized. Provides superb recommendations and information. She is proactive in anticipating needs and for special requests, with a bit of notice will provide written information (in addition to laminated information cards already available). She and Curt are very accommodating and thoughtful. I cannot say enough to convey how special Kristin is and how much she added to our stay. She makes wonderful, hearty breakfasts (very helpful for visiting wineries in the morning) and works hard to vary them daily. She keeps the guest fridge stocked with cold water, has a full cookie jar (homemade) for guests, and insulated bags available to use for picnics. Whatever inconvenience the eaves posed in the bedroom, Kristen more than compensated for that. I would go back to Chehalem Ridge for a stay in a heartbeat.
5 on July 31, 2013
Our room was absolutely wonderful, both the view and in comfort. We scheduled a hot air balloon ride at 5:15AM in the morning and the owner got up and took pictures of us in the air. What wonderful hosts!!
4.6 on July 29, 2013
Let me start by stating we were NOT B&B people, after our expereince all I can say is wow! Chehalem Ridge B&B is outstanding. Every detail was well thought out. From check-in to check-out was superb! At check-in we needed to cool down some wine to take to dinner we had shipped, a nice little fridge with a frozen sleeve to place around it was provided. Kristen was such a gracious hostess. We stayed in the High Desert which has a king bed.The beds are better than the advertised hotels known for their bedding, and the linens are UNBELIEVABLE, which you can purchase/order onsight. Breakfast was wonderful starting off with a yogurt parfay with a great granola, and a blueberry claffouti with bacon out on the deck over looking the Willamette Valley. It was nice to have the Hostess be polite and professional and ask one of the guests at breakfast to please put the cell phone away, or excuse stayed in the High Desert which has a king bed.. Kristen knew the valley's wineries and restaurants, had lovely maps, she provided great directions. Every detail was thought out down to the code on the front door! we will be back.

A fabulous overlook of Newberg and Williamette Valley. In Chehalem Ridge district this BB is well positioned to host a weekend visit to the vineyards. A new home offered pleasant and nicely finished rooms. The breakfast is delicious though not mountains of food. Enjoy.

Wish we could have stayed longer. If in the area again, we would defintely stay here! Kristin has a great sense of humor even though I didnt do what she asks everyone to do in advance of their stay. We have a Garmin and it took us on a gravel road, added about 15 minutes to our journey..not ideal. If I would have followed her directions, we would have saved some time and dust. I also have food allergies and she specifically asked in advance to let her know. I didn't. She takes breakfast very seriously...this isnt a croissant and jam type meal. She goes all out and is extremely creative. I threw her a curve...I wouldnt advocate it, but she made it happen. Rightfully, she gave me some grief...but what a great breakfast to start the day. Our Oregon Trail room was quiet and very clean...Every room has a private bath. Every room was occupied when we stayed in mid July.

Beautiful view, comfortable bed, very relaxing, great breakfast. The owner isn't the easiest to talk to, but other than that, a perfect place.

We stayed for one night as a romantic getaway from the kids and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The views are stunning and great for breakfast.
4.6 on July 15, 2013
My girlfriend and I stayed here for just one night, but we had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The site of the B&B is right on the top of the ridge with an amazing view over the whole valley. Great decks for hanging out and eating. Kristin took care of our dietary restrictions (gluten free) very well, even providing some delicious gf cookies in our room upon arrival. Great service.

The gorgeous views from this B&B are unbelievable. I'll never forget sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee watching the hot air balloons drifting over the valley. Exceeded only by the gourmet breakfast prepared by Kristin. The attentive care from our hosts made this a very special stay.

Our recent stay at Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast exceeded expectations and was a delightful experience. We experienced breathtaking views from the decks and property, luxurious linens and well stocked rooms, thoughtful and accommodating meal preparation and service, and great recommendations for time well spent in the area. Thank you to our great hosts and the friendly town of Newberg for a great trip! We look forward to returning!

This is a wonderful venue for relaxing after a day of wine tasting. The view is remarkable! I highly recommend this B & B.
4.6 on July 10, 2013
The Wine Room was incredible. Softest sheets I have ever slept on. The bathroom was large and very nicely decorated. Huge tub!! The breakfast each morning was divine and the view from the porch was simply gorgeous. The only criticism I could possibly give was that there was nothing other than water to drink at night. I might suggest to the owners that they stock a few soft drinks or sparkling water in their fridge.
5 on July 09, 2013
We were blown away by this place. The views are even more breath taking than the pictures. The food is outstanding. We really enjoyed overlooking the valley and Newberg from our bedroom balcony everynight. We are telling all our friends they need to go to Oregon and stay here..
4.4 on July 05, 2013
The view of the Willamette Valley from our room was fantastic! The host was very helpful and friendly, and breakfast was delicious.
5 on July 04, 2013
We had a wonderful stay at Chehalem Ridge B&B! The room was pristine, and we loved the execution of the theme in our room - so cute! The views of the valley are incredible - absolutely breathtaking! The breakfast was amazing, and Kristin was such a great help providing advice on where to go, what to do, and where to eat. We cannot say enough great things about this B&B, and we'll definitely be back some day!
4.6 on June 25, 2013
It is even more spectacular in person than the photos on their website. Close to town with several good restaurant choices and of course wineries and Portland.
4.8 on June 23, 2013
Stayed there for a night in June, and really enjoyed it. Incredible views of the valley, and close to great wine and dining.

My wife & I stayed here are first night in wine country. What a great place! Beautiful view and friendly owners. Super breakfast each day. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort
4.8 on June 08, 2013
Perfect setting for a B & B!!
4.6 on June 06, 2013
The views were great. The service was more like an inn than a B&B. The breakfasts were always prepared to exacting specifications and were comprehensive and interesting. The house is large, new and very comfortable. On our first night we simply stayed in and ate the light snacks we brought along with our wine on the large deck, Can't ask for more, but wait, the house is located near a number of vineyards and we visited one of those and had a great time as well. All and all a very comfortable and relaxing time.
4.6 on June 05, 2013
Beautiful property, great service, excellent food. Will definitely be coming back again soon!
5 on May 28, 2013
My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding and couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. They let us check in late and once we arrived, our balcony lead out onto views of the city lights and stars. In the morning, we woke up to a beautiful sunrise and quiet surroundings. The breakfast and service as also phenominal! I couldn't be more happy with this B&B and hope to stay there for our 1st anniversary too :)
4.6 on May 20, 2013
I stayed here as a surprise for my girlfriend. The pictures on the website do little justice to breathtaking scenery on top of the ridge. Our Rose Garden suite overlooked the valley, which seemed to stretch out for an eternity. Our innkeeper was very cordial and welcoming, she made us feel right at home. Breakfast in the morning was delect able and satisfying. It was freshly made, using ingredients that were locally sourced. Overall, this is a place I would highly recommend, and I will be sure to return.
5 on May 13, 2013
Our weekend visit was a gift from family. We have stayed at many B&B's and Chehalem Ridge is our favorite. The beautiful view, location in wine country, food, and friendly hosts topped it off. We look forward to our next visit. Russ & Melody Walker
4.8 on May 07, 2013
Wonderful setting. Hosts were appropriately engaging. Rooms view was specatcular. The food was deliciously and very creative.
4.8 on April 29, 2013
After searching through B&B options, we chose this location because of the value and amenities. I like cozy venues while my husband likes modern amenities, so this was the best of both worlds. The view from our room was amazing and the food was delicious. We will definitely return to this location.
4.4 on April 18, 2013
View is amazing. Kristin is great. Very knowledge about the area. Breakfast was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay

Great hospitality, very knowledgeable staff. Felt like being at home, very accommodating.
4.8 on April 08, 2013
We wanted to come to the Oregon wine country to celebrate my husband's retirement. The view from Chehalem Ridge was the first nice surprise. Sitting high above the valley, there is a spectacular view clear to the coastal mountains. Our room was beautifully detailed with nautical accents and beach glass tiles in the bath. The deck was the perfect place for our afternoon wine or to sit and watch the stars at night. Kristin is the perfect host and a marvelous cook, serving homemade jams, cheddar-walnut encrusted quiche, and tasty scones. She was a wealth of information about where to eat in the area as well as to giving guidance for winery visits. It was a wonderful visit-- one we would definitely recommend to others.
5 on March 22, 2013
Room, breakfast and personal treatment by the owner Kristin, all remarcable. We hope come back as soon as possible to the Chehalem Ridge B&B with some friends, winelovers. Silvio and Suely _ Santos - sp - Brazil

The hos went out of her way to provide for our dietary needs. She was very helpful in providing information about the surrounding community. the view from our room was spectacular. The room could have used another chair to sit in.

Wonderful room and great people. Breakfast is a can't miss!
3.8 on October 31, 2012
We chose this B&B because it was near a Halloween Party we were going to. Thought we'd make it a wine tasting weekend as well. Chehalem Ridge B&B is right in the heart of Oregon Wine Country overlooking the town of Newberg. Although we couldn't see it because of the heavy fog that night..... Made for an excellent " Scary Halloween" experience. The inn Keepers Kristin & Curt were great. They made time to talk with us, had lots of info on the area and suggested some great wineries to visit. The breakfast was great. Kristin asked if we had any foods we didn't like.... I don't like eggs, so they made a separate plate with Tofu instead of eggs. It was excellent and they also used local organic ingredients. We definitely plan on going back! T

We throughly enjoyed our stay at The Chehalem Ridge B & B. I require a glutin free diet and was treated to delicious treats at breakfast. We were also celebrating my birthday. When we returned to our room after dinner I was delighted to find my very own cookie jar of delicious glutin free chocolate mint cookies with a happy birthday note! The personal and thoughtful attention we received exceeded our expectations.
5 on October 10, 2012
The owners were very nice, the room was perfectly clean, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the view was spectacular, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend the Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast.
3.8 on October 06, 2012
Attentive innkeeper and great breakfast cook, Excellent views from the valley side of the house. Jacuzzi tub in Wine Country room was awesome. Bed in that room was very comfortable but too low to the ground, All said, we would definately return and try a another room.
4.8 on October 03, 2012
We stayed at the Chehalem for 3 nights during our Wine Country visit......it was in short, FANTASTIC.....room rates were reasonable, rooms were very very nice...each with a view of the valley....breakfast was superb...each day a new combination of great tastes..fresh fruit, homemade biscuits, omelettes, fritters, etc......Kristin is quite the accomplished chef......and her husband Curt was a very nice host, offering to help in any way possible to make our stay a special one.....DO NOT HESITATE TO STAY HERE IF YOU ARE VISITING the Willamette Valley
5 on September 27, 2012
Everything lived up to the reviews that were posted. Great spot and will visit again
4.8 on September 23, 2012
Beautiful views across the valley, the room was very comfortable and the small deck was just right for stars and a glass of refreshment. Inventive and delicious local produce breakfast menu! Enjoyed the visit and will return.
5 on September 21, 2012
My husband and I took our first trip to Oregon to enjoy a vacation of wine tasting. We chose Chehalem B&B because of the spectacular location and the "non-hotel" atmosphere. The B&B exceeded our expectations on mulitple levels: amazing views, wonderfully prepared breakfasts, well appointed rooms and a knowledgable and friendly innkeeper. Overall a wonderful experience and I wholeheartedly recommend this B&B for someone who wishes to relax and enjoy the beautiful Oregon wine country. Niki Fafoutis/Steve Cesareo
5 on September 20, 2012
We loved this place. Everyone was helpful, the food was wonderful and the view was outstanding!!!
5 on September 19, 2012
My husband and I when to Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast for a couple of days of relaxation and wine tasting. It was a wonderful experience. The view was breath taking, the food was served on the deck overlooking the valley and was a culinary experience. We stayed in the Rose Room and couldn't have asked for a better experience. I especially enjoy the owners (Kristin) humor, she was delightful. We will definitely return and highly recommend it.
4.8 on September 16, 2012
We had a fantastic time at the Chehalem Ridge B&B. Kristen made us feel very welcome, made great breakfasts and provided very good suggestions for places to dine and visit. The post card of the B&B does not do justice to the fantastic view form the Wine Country room! We will return as soon as we take our son back to college next year.
4.8 on September 14, 2012
My husband and I don't have many opportunities to stay at B&Bs, but when we have the chance, we love to. That being said, you never know what you're going to get - you just know if it's not exactly perfect, it's bound to be an interesting experience. Well, staying at this spot was excellent. Kristen was a great host - very knowledgeable about the area, an excellent chef showcasing very delicious, fresh, local (very local! fresh from the garden) ingredients, and very helpful when requested things to see/do and places to dine. In addition, our room was outstanding - the view of the valley was amazing, the backporch with a heater is genius! And you can't beat the in-room jacuzzi tub. Overall, incredible!
5 on September 12, 2012
We enjoyed our one night here. The view from the deck was amazing. We sipped wine and ate dinner out here and watched the sun set. There were even binoculars for us to use. The room was also perfect and had everything we needed. The b&b had anything we would need and it felt like we were at home. The breakfast was very nice as well. Sipping coffee before on the deck. If you wake up early you may even see the hot air balloons take off on a Saturday. Perfect stay and great finishing touch on our Oregon vacation.
5 on September 11, 2012
This was our second trip to Newberg, first stay at Chehalem Ridge Bed and Bath. Liked this much more than the Allison Inn-cozy, friendly, beautiful view of vineyards and downtown Newberg The room was comfortable and met all our expectations. Plan to visit again in 2013.
5 on September 10, 2012
Absolutely gorgeous!! We loved our stay and will come back again. The service was excellent and Kristin and Jen were very nice. I have special dietary needs and they were right on top of it with every meal being what I needed. There were even specially made cookies for me which were excellent! I didn't want our stay to end! Thank you!!! A++++++
4.6 on September 07, 2012
From the moment I set foot on the property, I felt the daily stress of life melt away. My room was perfect, with the most amazing view (even at night), and the next morning an incredible and delicious meal was served on the deck while I soaked in the sun and the million dollar view once again. Beautiful inside and out, with privacy and quiet like I haven't experienced in ages! The staff was attentive and very kind as well.
4.6 on September 04, 2012
The innkeepers were helpful and friendly, the view was spectacular, and breakfast was wonderful. The outdoor patio heaters were a nice addition for the cool evenings and morning.
4.8 on September 04, 2012
The view from the balcony was absolutely breath taking. The staff was both helpful and informative. Their advise on local restaurants and wineries were right on the money. Having stayed in several bed and breakfast over the years, the food here is as good as any I've ever experienced. Presentation was great, the taste even better. I look forward to returning for another visit.
5 on August 31, 2012
Kindness, promptness, everything to make a special day really special.
5 on August 23, 2012
We chose Chehalem Ridge based on the photos on their website. They were beautiful but did not do the B&B or views justice. The hair on the back of my head stood up when I looked over the charming city of Newberg and vineyards from the balcony of the Wine Country Room. The morning meals were spectacular. Kristen added a very personal touch to breakfast by serving homade jams and jellies. Her jelly made from Queen Anne's Lace was unique and tasty. The plates were adorned with edible flowers. Stay here if you enjoy being treated special.
4.8 on August 18, 2012
The view from the deck was breathtaking and the breakfast delicious. Kurt, Kristina, Jen, and Kristin were very helpful. We enjoyed browsing through the extensive library.
4.6 on August 15, 2012
We only stayed one night at the Chehalem Ridge B&B, we were just down from Portland for some wine-tasting, but it was a great night! Our room was spotless, maybe a bit on the small side, but the big windows and the deck with the VIEW more than made up for it. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom generous. The breakfast was excellent, very fresh and healthy yet delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful without being at all in the way. We definitely plan to go back.
4.6 on August 07, 2012
This B&B is lovely with great views of the valley. Kristin's breakfasts are delicious, with great variety but not pretentious. Both Kristin and Jennifer were great resources on wineries, restaurants, things to do, and travel directions. The winery complimentary cards saved us a lot on tasting fees. The rooms are small but comfortable, cozy, and clean. We would definitely return for another visit!
4.2 on August 04, 2012
We looked for other B&Bs in this area and this one was a much better price. The pictures of the place made it look like a bargain and it was! We actually stayed in the one room without a balcony and did not find that a loss as there is a public balcony off the living room that we had all to ourselves with an amazing view of the valley below. Breakfast was very good and Kristin (the host, owner and cook) did a greta job explaining everything and how the ingrdients came from their garden. Only downside was we had first b-fast (8:00) and we had to get up so Kristin could make room for the next serving at 9:00. Only a minor detail but we were really enjoying our conversation with our table mates. This B&B is an outstanding value. So many others are over priced and you don't get as much as this place!
5 on July 31, 2012
We came back to stay with Kristin for our 3-year anniversary and were just as impressed with this stay as we have been in the past. The rooms are still in great shape and have wonderful views of the town below. Kristin is a wonderful cook and Kurt was a great host during breakfast, sharing details on the meal, providing tips and suggestions for the guests daily adventures and providing a few good jokes as well! We can't wait to come back again!
4.4 on July 29, 2012
Wonderful B&B in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Excellent breakfasts and incredible western view.
3.6 on July 27, 2012
Chehalem Ridge's view is really stunning. Kristin also makes a pretty gourmet breakfast garnished with edible flowers from her garden. Wineries are within minutes driving.
5 on July 21, 2012
We cannot say enough great things about the Chehalem Ridge B&B. The views are simply stunning, and Kristin's breakfasts are amazing. The rooms are immaculately clean, comfortable, and spacious -- and have separate, private balconies. Ours was on the upper level overlooking the valley below -- we really enjoyed opening a bottle of wine that we had purchased earlier in the day and soaking in the views at night. Kristin also put us in touch with a great wine guide who took us to several great winieries in the Wilammette Valley. We rarely give reviews -- only when an exceptional place is deserving. Chehalem Ridge B&B is definitely in that category -- we will certainly be back.
4.8 on July 13, 2012
My wife and I stayed at the B&B in the Oregon Trail room for three nights. The owner/host Kristen made fantastic breakfasts each morning and introduced us to dishes I would normally venture to try but found them delicious. Both Kristen & Jennifer were extremely helpful in helping us plan our winery tours. The photos of the views you get from websites don't do the actual experience justice. And the B&B is located in a nice central spot close to town and a few dozen wineries. Many people have commented in the past that the noise from other guests is a negative, but we never experienced this ourselves. If someone happened to be talking outside the door - sure you hear it, but in what hotel or B&B wouldn't you? Also, just in case you are an ultra-light sleeper - they provide earplugs. We never needed them. The next time we are in Oregon, we will definitely stay there again. Mike & Maryann (the Canadians)
4.6 on July 04, 2012
We stayed in the Wine Country Room and loved it. Small but cozy - the angled ceiling gives it character. Great view from the private balcony. Perfect place to relax at the end of the day with a nice glass of Pinot Noir. The jetted tub for two - with candles - added to our romantic evening. Wonderful hospitality.
4.8 on July 04, 2012
This was a lovely B&B overlooking the valley with spectacular views. It is incredibly quiet and serene with large porches for guests to sit on. I particularly enjoyed that this was one of the smaller B&B's with only 3 or 4 guest rooms, making it more romantic and peaceful. The meal in the morning was wonderful, cooked by one of the owners with culinary training, and she is very attentive to any dietary needs or requests. Would definitely stay here again!
4.6 on June 27, 2012
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. Our room was great, the view was excellent and the food was amazing! We had a wonderful time and would return again. Jennifer, Kristin & Curt were all very helpful & friendly. Great atmosphere.
3.6 on June 26, 2012
I picked this B & B primarily for the view and then it was rainy and fogged in. The innkeeper was gracious when I asked if we could sit on the front deck after we checked out (after our one night) so we could appreciate the view once the fog lifted. The innkeeper was also very helpful and nice with her responses to my e-mails about breakfast likes and dislikes and about recommended restaurants. All the people were very nice and the inn was good. I think it was overpriced tho for what you got in the room itself. We stayed in the wine country room. The room was very bare - a bed (comfortable), a wooden folding chair, two very small night stands and two luggage racks. A short closet. But there was no place in the room to set anything down or to sit.comfortably. Maybe I would have viewed things a little differently if we had been able to sit on the private patio (small, with metal chairs & table). The bathroom with the jetted tub was lovely with all the marble but there was no way to have the fan on without a bright light on also so the bathroom got steam bath like.The robes were really soft and comfy. We did avail ourselves of the two common areas which were comfortable and nicely done, but I think overall the $180 we paid was a little high for what we got. The breakfast was good but I was not as special as I thought it would be after reading the other reviews. I'm from the Willamette Valley so I know that the weather is often rainy and foggy. I was hoping that the end of June would be OK, but I'd suggest if you really want the view - shoot for late July or August. And since there are so many rainy, non-view days, in this part of Oregon, it would be nice to have a little more comfort in the rooms themselves.
5 on June 23, 2012
Everything was so perfect. The room was spectacular and the food was amazing! I loved the atmosphere of the whole B&B. It was the perfect place to stay for the first night of our honeymoon!!!
4.4 on June 20, 2012
My husband and I went here for our ten year anniversary and enjoyed every minute of it. The hosts were extremely friendly, the rooms were nice and the food was amazing. The only downside is that the room's were close together and you are able to hear other guests talking or moving around. Other than that-it exceeded our expectations and we definitely plan to return.
4.4 on June 18, 2012
We had an enjoyable time at Chehalem. It was centrally located to many great wineries. The inn keepers were extremely helpful in responding to questions and giving advice, but not leading us on only to their preferences. The views are spectacular and sorry we could not stay longer and enjoy the ambience of the deck. Would definitely stay here again if we get back to Oregon.
4.8 on June 18, 2012
This place is great. We came back a second time because we liked it so much. The food is fantastic and the view is unbeatable. It's a great home base for endless wine tasting in Newberg, Dundee and McMinnville. Plenty of nice restaurants to eat at in the area. You'll love your stay here!
4.8 on June 12, 2012
Excellent visit in conjunction with two other couples. Rooms were spotless. Breakfasts were a work of art and recipes were freely shared. Kristin and Curt ar outstanding hosts.

incredible view! very comfortable room. excellent breakfast. would definitely return if in the area and will be recommending this B&B to others.
5 on June 10, 2012
Everything was perfect..well,weather wasn't too cooperative, but beyond anyone's control...Jen greeted us cordially...gave us excellent recommendations for wine tasting (Fox Farm) and dinner (Recipe)...Wine Country Room was clean, comfortable, and afforded magnificent view from private balcony...Kristin's hospitality and breakfast were super...would definitely return if our travels take us to this part of Oregon again.
5 on June 10, 2012
The views are stunning, pictures can not do it justice. The staff is very nice, there when you need them, gone when you don't. And the best part is the breakfast. Everything was delicious, fresh and homemade. The chai scones with homemade local ingredients jelly and the lemon ricotta pancakes were amazing. The weather was nice so we sat on the patio to eat. I already want to go back. Don't miss this gem.
5 on June 08, 2012
My husband and I stayed in the Rose Garden Room last week. First off, we are from Kansas City, so when I stepped out of the car and saw the view, I started to cry. It was breathtaking. Second, we realize we are hearing jazz coming from the house, with the sounds of the waterfall outside, and saw all the amazing flowers. We were the only ones there, and explored the gorgeous house and our room. She had homemade lemon sugar cookies downstairs, as well as wine glasses to use and a fridge to put our wine in. No detail was overlooked. The porch outside our room was perfect for an al fresco dinner and wine. Breakfast was beyond delicious. Melon, rhubarb strawberry pecan muffins, and lemon ricotta pancakes. I cannot recommend this B&B enough. Honestly? All b&b's I will stay in will be held to the standard set by Chehalem Ridge.
5 on June 07, 2012
As newlyweds, we had a wonderful stay here! The room was beautiful and nicely decorated (we had the wine country room), and the 2 person air jetted bath tub was huge and relaxing. The grounds were well landscaped, and the views of the valley were breathtaking! The breakfast was so delicious and presentable. And the innkeepers were so friendly and accommodating, especially for me with food intolerances. Everything was amazing, and we wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you!
5 on May 31, 2012
We had an amazing time last weekend at the Chehalem B&B! The rooms were charming, the view was outstanding, and the food was SO delicious! Thanks to Team Kristin for a wonderful weekend! We WILL be back!
5 on May 26, 2012
Your B&B far exceeded our expectations. You thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The daily breakfast was thoughtful and well prepared. The staff was very accommodating and offered suggestions on activities that made our vacation even more fulfilling! Many thanks!
4.6 on May 23, 2012
My wife and I could not have enjoyed our stay more. Our room, the Wine Country Room, was extremely romantic and the view was great. The bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was a perfect way to relax. The house was quiet and the women running it were a pleasure.
4.0 on May 21, 2012
Finding this B & B literally perched like a bird house on ridge of mountain was challenging, but finally found it lovely and with unsurpassed views. The rooms could be decorated with more updated art and furniture and a mattress that is not on a wooden box without a bedspring. Also, I like amenities such as bottled shampoo and shower gel, not in a dispenser in shower (and there was no gel.) Also, I really like clean towels every day not my day before towels left on the towel rack and on tub. For $160 I think clean towels and toiletries should be part of the package. Also, walls are thin. You can hear EVERYTHING going on next door. Breakfast was plentiful. But the views are amazing. And so are the sunsets. So, if you don't mind a few oversights (towels, shampoo, thin walls), this is your place. And Newberg is just 10 minutes down the winding road.
Thanks for giving us 4 stars even though we failed to meet some of your expectations. I’d like to address some of those expectations with explanations, and some with a hearty “I’m sorry”. First, the challenge of finding us. Although we’re a 10 minute drive from Newberg, some GPS units have an error which adds 2 miles of gravel road to the route. Until the GPS map is updated, we recommend guests follow the directions we provide. Next, our mattresses, being memory foam, need a wood box under them as a box spring cannot support their weight. You don’t say that you didn’t sleep well, so it’s hard for me to know what bothered you about the bed-skirt-covered box. Touching on the art & furniture: I think you stayed in our Rose Garden Room which has contemporary photos of roses from our local garden and a charming picket fence headboard. Maybe it’s not your style, but the photos on our website are pretty spot-on in showing the décor and the choices in the other rooms, like the wrought iron décor of the Wine Country Room. While we do not have amenities, we provide very nice shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in our wall dispensers. We try to be eco-friendly and find the immense waste generated by little bottles unacceptable. I am sorry the gel dispenser didn’t work; hopefully the individual soap bars (recycled with Clean The World) met your needs. I’m very sorry that we did not change your towels as you wanted. There was a breakdown in communication between myself and my fill-in while I was out sick. Our policy is to change towels after the third night or when a guest leaves the towels in the tub or on the floor. We also stock extra towels in the bathroom so you were never far from new towels. For future guests, be assured that I and my staff endeavor to fix any problem within our ability to change. While we can’t change the headboard or art, a quick knock on the kitchen door or a phone call if we’re out running errands will have us working hard to make things right.

Beautifully built B&B over looking the wine country of Oregon's Willamette Valley with spectacular views from most of the facility. Each of the 4 rooms has a deck with an expansive view and a heating system that allows for deck setting even in cooler weather. While our room, the wine room was small and could have benefited by having a comfy chair in it, the beds were comfortable and the large bathroom with double jetted tub and shower were great. Kristin was most helpful with suggestions based on our interests and accommodating with some of our particular needs. Her breakfasts are lovely. We especially appreciated the healthy and well balanced but wonderfully delicious breakfast which always included baked goods and home made sauces and jellies. It was an enjoyable little escape.
5 on May 02, 2012
Had a very nice stay at Chehalem Ridge. Enjoyed conversation with Kristin during the delicious breakfast. Highly recommend staying here while exploring the wineries in the area. B&B has a gorgeous view!!!! Can't wait to come back for another wonderful stay. Eileen

We stayed in the Rose Garden room, high above Newberg with views overlooking the town and surrounding area. The room was not huge, but comfortable. The bed was the only negative; it was a little lumpy and could use a new mattress. Breakfast was outstanding; Kristen made sure we were well fed with delicious and interesting meals each morning, including home-made jams and preserves. A great base for exploring the wine country.
I’m glad this couple from Florida enjoyed their stay with us enough to leave a review. They were certainly a pleasure to meet. It’s so good to know that they enjoyed all four breakfasts. The review also gives me the opportunity to discuss our beds. I have checked out the Rose Garden Room mattress and have found it not to be lumpy... just different than what some folks are used to. All of our rooms have memory foam mattresses which many guests rave about at breakfast, saying it was the best sleep they’ve had. When you lay down on the memory foam, it curves to your body and while shifting around during sleep, you may find that you are laying on top of where it was curved. It very quickly adjusts to the new position, but for some folks, the change is more noticeable than others. I hope I have addressed any concerns future guests may have about our mattresses.

Clean, well set-up, spectacular views of the Willamette Valley from the rooms on the back side, Kristin is a great hostess! Off the beaten path, but well worth the search

We've visited Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast 5 times now to commemorate and celebrate major events in our lives, including our elopement and honeymoon, anniversary, and most recently defeating cancer. It is a perfect secluded little castle in the clouds to take a few moments and remind yourself how amazing life and the region can be. Kristen and Kurt are wonderful, unassuming, and funny hosts and we'll be back for many more celebrations and victories.

Quiet location on top of ridge offers great views, our room overlooked valley & weather drifting in & out. Breakfasts were fresh, well-prepared and tasty. Kristin is a knowledgable, friendly hostess. Expect a 10-minute drive down to town. I imagine it would be very nice in summer with the patios and landscaped surroundings.
3.2 on February 16, 2012
The grounds are well kept. Nice extras offered, some basic things missing (ice!). Breakfast was lovely. Inclined entrance slick when wet with no place to stand out of the rain. Stair and landing carpet needs replacing. Very quiet (a plus) with stunning view, but more guests would have made it seem crowded. In general a pleasant stay.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. I always learn how to do things better from our reviewers. I do make an effort to greet our guests at the door when checking in so they don't have to stand out in the rain. I'm sorry I made you wait a bit. We have found that our mini-fridge does not make good ice and when it does, it quickly gets stale. We are more than happy to fill up our ice bucket when guests ask. As the information in our room says, even when we don't seem "around" we respond quite well to a quick phone call. I want our guests to know that I have had the bleach stain on the stair landing repaired. We are typically full or mostly full during our busy season. Even though our common rooms are not super-large, with a living room, TV room, dining room and common deck with lots of seating, our guests don't feel crowded at all. Most enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends. We look forward to have these guests visit us again and I'll be ready with a full ice bucket.

My husband adamantly refused to spend another birthday in Texas. But when his 60th birthday rolled around in December, life had intervened and we were still stuck on Texas. But in January things fell into place and we headed to Oregon for a house-hunting trip. Since we had stayed at Chehalem Ridge before and thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular views, we knew we wanted to stay there to make the last day of our trip a special belated birthday celebration. We stayed in the Wine Country room. Readers should be aware there is a serious problem with that room. It is so cozy, romantic and inviting, you will not want to leave. Seriously. The bed and pillows were so comfortable we felt like we were sleeping on the clouds that enveloped the inn at night. I don't normally think of bathrooms and romance in the same sentence, but the bathroom in this room was made to be shared. The innkeeper, Kristen's, breakfast was fresh, inventive and delicious. All in all, it was a very special occasion!
4.6 on January 26, 2012
Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast will now be the only place I stay if I am in wine country around Newberg, Sherwood and Dundee...it is outstanding! The room was lovely and extremely clean, the views from the decks are amazing...it definitely made me want to just stay in and watch the sun set with a glass of wine. Kristen was a lovely host and is an accomplished chef, so her breakfast was superb. Definitely wanted to stay more than the one night that we did. I would recommend Chehalem Ridge to anyone, it's a gem of a location!
4.8 on January 19, 2012
This was our second visit to Chehalem Ridge B&B, and our opinion was reinforced that this is a special getaway in the heart of the wine country. Great food, accommodations and friendly service are only outshone by the 180 degree panoramic view of the valley below. Highly recommended. Kent and Val, Seattle

My wife and I headed to wine country for a weekend away after the holidays. Chehalem Ridge far exceeded our expectations! We arrived at a perfect time just before sunset to see the amazing views. Kristin was fantastic at accomadated us and our needs for a one night visit. My wife is a Celiac and has to eat Gluten Free, Kristin's breakfast was amazingly delicious! We will recommend others to stay here in the future.

My wife and I spent part of our mini-moon (the honeymoon before the honeymoon) at this wonderful B & B perched high up above the Willamette Valley. While we anticipated Oregon's November weather would cloud out the view, we were blessed with mostly sunny skies and amazing views from our "Oregon Coast" room and deck. The room was nice, however it was located on the main floor right across from the front door, and since it was handicap accessible it had no tub. (But, the view made up for that in my opinion.) The Inn keepers, Curt and Kristin are great hosts. Kristin is a fabulous chef and each morning we had a delicious 3 course meal. They were also very accommodating; they even recorded the Michigan vs. OSU football game (the wife is UM grad and football fanatic) which started at 9am PST so we could watch in its entirety after our gourmet breakfast. The B and B is just perfect for anyone wanting to be right in the thick of wine country. Each day we hit up some great wineries, some were only a few minutes away from the B & B. Overall our experience was just about perfect and we are thankful we chose Chehalem Ridge.
5 on November 21, 2011
This was our first time at a smaller B&B. Other experiences were at larger places that were more like mini-hotels. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the wonderful food, great views, and the comfort of Chehalem Ridge. Kristin and Curt are wonderful hosts and made us feel at ease. The view's from our balcony were amazing, as was the food. It is a great place and we will return in the future.

Stayed in the wine country room. Magnificent views(worth the extra drive), bathroom was awesome, bed was comfortable, food was outstanding. Kristen has excellent attention to detail in terms of amenities(emergency kit in closet of things travelers forget, restaurant suggestions, maps, coolers, water, etc.). The only minor thing missing was no dresser in the room. Small short closet is all that is avail to place your clothes.

Chehalem Ridge was an excellent place to stay. It's not too far from downtown Newberg and wineries. It has great views and plenty of things to do such as watch TV, hang on the patio, read books and magazines, etc. The one thing I wasn't crazy about was breakfast because it was simply too sweet for my taste. The food was high quality, but I prefer a savory breakfast and next time I stay there I will ask for that in advance, as I know they will accommodate special needs.

We have had our ups and downs with B&Bs over the years. So, when we decided to stay in one while visiting the Oregon Wine Country, we had our fingers crossed when we chose the Chehalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast just outside Newberg. To say that it restored our faith in B&Bs would be an understatement. The location is atop a ridge overlooking a winery filled valley and the town of Newberg. One morning while enjoying breakfast on the deck, we were treated to watching three hot air balloons drifting across the valley floor below us. Everything either met or exceeded our expectations. The breakfasts were fantastic, the rooms and accompanying accommodations were great and the location is right in the center of the area’s Willamette Wine district as well as an easy commute into Portland and the Columbia River Gorge areas. In fact, we enjoyed our stay so much that we changed our itinerary and added an extra day when we found out that our room was not booked for the day following our planned departure.

Beautiful place to stay after wine tasting. The view of the valley was wonderful. We stayed in the Oregon Trail room that was lovely, but I didn't realize there is NO view with this room of the valley like the others have (I understood there was no balcony). Unfortunately we also got some heavy winds in the evening that kept us from enjoying the common balcony and low clouds in the morning . Kristen is very nice and I love how modern everything was. She really pays attention to detail. Food was good, but not so filling for my 28 year old husband. We could only afford one night in the valley. As we stayed in a very nice place in Cannon Beach for only $90 a night that is more what I think it's worth.
4.0 on September 29, 2011
Overall, a nice spot to stay in Oregon wine country. Amazing view from the ridge, cozy amenities and the bathroom in the "wine country room" was modern, but relaxing. A lot of thought went into everything from the heated patio, the well equipped emergency kit, bathrobes and various books, CD's, movies and games. Thankfully, no TV in the room and the art was fun and local. The other guests were fun to get to know and breakfast was delicious. Plus, you really cannot beat the lush country surrounding! My picky hesitations: not the most welcoming introduction or general interaction. The words were there, but the mood seemed a bit exhausted and sort of "over" the customer service. I will say that I saw a different reaction with other guests, so I'd like to give the benefit of the doubt that our perceived youth(?) may have affected our relationship. Or maybe the extremely relaxed attitude was meant to relate to us more. I don't know, but I left feeling like I was sort of a bother. But, that being said, and great place to stay and I would recommend it.

Outstanding panoramic views of the Willamette Valley surpassed only by the culinary excellence of our hostess. We highly recommend the Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast to potential visitors. Chip & Paula

The view from the B&B was fabulous. The Innkeeper, Kristin, was great, not only in the wonderful experience at her B&B but also provide great recommendations for dining, wine tasting, and things to do once we left and went to Portland.
5 on August 30, 2011
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Kristen is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was divine, and the inn is very well designed. The view of the Willamette Valley is superb in the daytime and gives a spectacular view of the lights of Newberg at night. We hope to be back soon.
5 on August 29, 2011
Wonderful B&B, spectacular views, gracious hosts. Wonderful all around. We stayed in the Wine Room that had a private balcony with a full view of the valley and vineyards. Great restaurants within 10 min to 30 min away. Only Tip: remember to bring your own bottle of wine. They have everything except for the vino, and its 10 minutes to the closest grocery store.
5 on August 29, 2011
Chehalem Ridge was a great value for the money. Our room with balcony was gorgeous, and the view cannot be beat. The food was excellent and Kristin accommodated my husband's vegan diet deliciously. We would stay here every time we visit the Willamette Valley. Fantastic!!!
5 on August 22, 2011
Fantastic b&b!! It is like sitting in a picture. We had the best time and the host (it wasn't the innkeeper as they were on vacation) was great. Breakfast was amazing! We can't wait to go back for our anniversary.

Rooms are very comfortable, Inn is spotless and has all the amenties you may want. Highly recommend this B&B!
5 on August 08, 2011
Driving up we could see the B&B on the ridgeline and exlaimed, "THAT's where we're staying?!" Couldn't have picked a better place to overlook the valley. We were so far above the valley floor, we felt like we were soaring with the local winged populace. One might think that the drive along the winding road to Chehalem B&B is not worth the time. Wrong! Doesn't take anytime at all to get back down to the commercial area and/or to wine tasting, etc. Kristin makes a killer breakfast and the interaction with other couples just made it all the better. Was really fun and relaxing. For you die-hards that can't get away from global communication, the Wi-Fi works just fine. When you first get out of your car and walk up to the edge, your eyes and lungs will be in shock from the sight and altitude (smile). From first setting foot inside, we could tell that much thought was put into the ambiance of Chehalem. Just makes one feel like they belong there for the next 100 years. We will be back...unfortunately, not soon enough.

This is the perfect place to stay after tasting wine in the Dundee area. The views from the B&B are fantastic. We were served breakfast on the deck overlooking wine country. The inn keeper, Kristin is also an unbelievable cook. She knows how to alter her dishes for food allergies. I have a gluten intolerance and my husband is allergic to eggs. She had gluten free, egg free cookies in our room, and for breakfast, she made us delicious lemon ricotta pancakes! The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. We love the wine country room because it has a large jetted tub.
5 on July 13, 2011
The accommodations were first rate. Kristin was a great hostess. She put a lot of thought in the little things that make a difference, from the robes, to the flowers, to the candles, it was all great. The bed was one of the most comfortable we slept-in on our 10-day trip. And the breakfast was delicious. The view over the valley from our bedroom was magnificent. We'll definitely stop by to see Kristin and her B & B again the next time we're in the area.
4.6 on July 12, 2011
Designed from scratch as a B&B. Outstanding appointments, great views good value. A little out of the way for winery visits. Huge innovative breakfasts - more than we could eat, but too much sugar. Maybe could add late afternoon appetizers with wine because of out-of-the-way location - we would be willing to pay more for this.
4.8 on July 12, 2011
We stayed in the Wine Country room. It was beautiful with a very romantic view from our deck. Our hosts were extremely helpful in recommending area attractions. Breakfast was to die for. We would definitely return when in the area again.
3.8 on July 07, 2011
Nice place, breakfast was great. As in most B&B's the noise of other guests do to thin walls was mild problem. The views from our private deck were fantastic, you could see for many miles to the South. The area is great for wineries and just driving around.
5 on July 04, 2011
This was simply outstanding. Kristin & Curt (Owners) were great. Food was over the top and fresh. The VIEWS were amazing and paneramic. Price was very reasonable. This was a surprize for my wife and our 25th anniversary. She was in ahh over the whole thing. Our next stay will be there and we highly recommend it to all our friends (and you).
2.8 on June 30, 2011
Our room appeared as shown and we enjoyed watching a movie while eating a tasty home-baked cookie in the cozy area downstairs. The large, jetted tub in the Wine Room as well as the view from the balcony was a definite highlight; I also enjoyed the fine soap, shampoo and conditioner provided! Once I noticed the stairs hadn't been recently vacuumed, I began to notice other things that weren't as clean as I'd expect them to be (fixtures, walls, etc.). Our breakfast was smaller (beverages, scones, fresh-fruit parfait, blueberry french toast and some bacon) than expected but still very tasty. The property was attractive and quiet.

4.2 on June 26, 2011
This was my first experience with a B&B and we couldn't have picked a more beautiful place! The house was only 5 years old, so all the amenities and furnishings were modern (many we looked at online were decorated in a country colonial style that is not my preference). There was a private balcony off our room overlooking the Willamette Valley as well as a shared balcony on the main floor where we ate breakfast one morning. Kristen, the owner/innkeeper, made some really stunning breakfasts. My favorite was the ham and cheese quiche with a handmade walnut crust--yum! We would definitely return to this property and will recommend to our friends.

The photos are true to the reality - this place is spectacular. It is gorgeous beyond words. The set up is great - very well designed. The service rating above could have been three instead of two, depending on how service is defined. Conveniences were fantastic and thoughtul - cold water, wine chillers, bandaids, maps. But the innkeeper was not very friendly even when we tried to engage her. We even felt that we annoyed her with simple requests. But Chehalem Ridge is such a good find for the price that we would consider staying there again.
I'd like to thank the guest for taking the time to comment on their stay with us. We do read every comment and look for ways to improve our B&B and our guests' stay with us. As Innkeeper, I try very hard to understand each of our guests' needs and desires. Some guests like to be left alone while others want more interactivity. While I generally am on the mark with what each guest wants their experience to be, I fell short with this guest and for that I am truly sorry. I appreciate that this couple is willing to give me another chance when they come to wine country again.

What a great place to stay! My boyfriend and I had never been to Oregon before and we wanted to mix a little city with wine country. Portland was great, but staying at Chehalem Ridge B&B was even better! The view is amazing (I recommend the Rose Garden room), very clean, well kept. Fresh cookies, nice living room area to relax and a great deck off the back of the house. Our host, Kristin, made a great breakfast. We are vegan and she was happy to prepare a special meal for us. It's only a few minutes drive to Newberg and a few more to Dundee. Plenty of wineries and vineyards to visit all along the way! I highly recommend this B&B!

The view is awesome. The location is perfect. The gluten/(chicken egg) free crepes were fantastic. This was just what we needed; a stay-cation in wine country.

4.4 on June 04, 2011
Kristin thinks of every detail... even towels to wipe off the deck chairs, extra toiletries plus a fantastic breakfast. Great recommendations for restaurants and vineyards to visit. The only thing the room could have used is a comfy chair, but it space is tight. The view makes up for it.

As if the view doesn't sell the B&B on it's own, Kristin and Curt have done a wonderful job of thinking of everything. The house/grounds were very clean and we loved the fireplace in our room (we stayed in the Coast Room). The breakfast was outstanding as well. What I didn't expect were the little touches they have thought of from bird-watching books and binoculars to a mini-flashlight on our key chain. They had wonderful suggestions on where to eat and what wineries to visit and their suggestions did not disappoint. We had to rise early for two days (once for a balloon ride and the other to catch our flight home). Both days they had coffee programmed for us and on the day we left, Kristin made us muffins to take with us. On the day of the balloon ride, they took pictures from the B&B of our balloon! I couldn't have asked for more of this place. They do a wonderful job and we would definitely go back in a heartbeat.
5 on April 16, 2011
As soon as I walked into the B&B I was very pleased. The home is just so nice and all the rooms are decorated differently. Kristin and Kurt really show how much talent they have the way everything is set up. Breakfast was superb! And the view is outstanding. I would definately stay there again when I'm in Oregon Willamete Valley for another visit.
4.2 on April 05, 2011
Great location with a beautiful view. Breakfast was gourmet, and our food allergies were catered to completely (which is a great service to provide and beyond what most places will do). The room was great (ocean room) with a cozy little fire place and everything, but the bed was not all that comfortable (too soft). Loved the little private deck with a heater, and the bathroom was very nice and clean. All in all a great place to stay and we will be back!
Thank you so much or this informative review. We’re very happy you enjoyed your time with us. We are sorry that the bed was too soft for you. For our future guests, we’d like them to know that our mattresses are memory foam mattresses. We generally get great comments about them, even guests who email after their visit to research purchasing one themselves, but we do occasionally hear from guests for whom the beds were not the best fit.

We had a great time at the Chehalem Ridge. Other than the view, I would say the best part was the breakfast. Amazing

We had a delightful time here -- Kristin is a friendly, witty host and the inn reflects a great deal of thoughtul attention to detail. Individual room climate controls, heaters on the public & private decks, luxurious linens . . . and that doesn't even speak to the views! Quiet, private country setting but cloes to town. We'd recommend Chehalem Ridge to anyone!

This is an amazing get-away to complete a remarkable wine-country outing. The wine room with private, heated balcony and 2-person jacuzzi made the stay even more relaxing. Kristin surprised us with home-made blueberry muffins, pinot noir grape jelly, and perfect salmon hash with poached eggs. I was hard to leave!

Wow!!! The view was amazing and the hospitality wonderful. Kristin really made us feel welcome and the "homey" feel of the inn was a great end to a day of touring the wine country. We will most definitely be returning in the near future. We stayed in the "Wine Room" and loved the comfortable bed and the romantic touches throughout. The spa-like bathroom provided a welcome santuary after a day spent in the chill of the winter weather. This inn is a "must" for anyone who is looking for the "little touches" that make a stay very special. - Mike and Cindy Zellers, Portland, OR

Dozens of wineries surround Chehalem Ridge, making it a good place at which to begin a tasting tour or end one. We chose this spot to enjoy the Willamette valley vistas before heading to the coast, and we were not disappointed. While travelers have several options in this locale, we found the casual comfort of Chehalem Ridge suited us perfectly. The inn is an affordable option and provides all guests with private decks, which make it possible to truly savor the amazing views. The guest living room provided space to read and relax while enjoying the homemade cookies and beverages offered each day. Our breakfast was a tasty dish featuring zucchini from Kristen's garden and fresh eggs laid by a neighbor's hens. Though most often bustling in the background, Kristen was always available to offer suggestions about wineries and restaurants or to tend to our needs. When she learned that I like NY Times crosswords, she sifted through recent papers to find me some, along with comic strips for my husband. They exchanged jokes about their favorites with the good humor that characterized her friendly rapport throughout our stay. A scrapbook of photos illustrating the transformation of the property testifies to the love Kristen and her husband have put into making Chehalem Ridge the welcoming inn it is today. They found a way to maximize comfort and privacy for their guests and to showcase the star: the view. That each of the four rooms affords its own deck from which to survey the beauty of the amazing countryside makes this B and B a jewel worth searching out.

Beautiful property, excellent service, I highly recommend this B & B.

That's it. Just stay here. Then you'll understand how tremendous it is!

Fantastic view from every room! It was like an inn up in the clouds. Each room has a character all its own. The rooms were very clean and well-maintained; breakfast was consistently delicious and the the atmosphere was very friendly. As first-time visitors to the area, we found it very helpful that the inn had all the information available (restaurant guides and sample menus, directions, etc.) at our fingertips. Kudos to the innkeepers!! We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. A perfect getaway!

Never have stayed before in a B&B and we really enjoyed our time there. We got to meet other travellers, got to get great input from Kristin, had a great night rest, perfect breakfast. Cannot complain about one thing. I even noticed the smallest of details - the tissue in the bathroom was the soft kleenex with lotion - just a nice touch. The very best thing was the view and the balconey. Unbelievable! Was really great stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed with Kristin & Curt at their B&B and had an absolute fantastic time. They were wonderful hosts, the food was amazing (which says a lot, considering my boyfriend and i are big foodies, and seek out quality and uniqueness everywhere we go), and the B&B was wonderful -- perfectly situated in Oregon wine country, which made it a great stopover on our wine tasting weekend adventure. The innkeepers were extremely welcoming and helpful with all our needs -- suggestions for wineries, general directions, and overall openness with the area and what we were looking for. We stayed in the Oregon Trail Room, which even though it was the smallest, it was perfect for our stay, expectations and price! AND the views from the B&B were breathtaking. we will definitely be back! and will spread the word to our friends...as long as we have our reservation their first ;) this was my boyfriend and my first bed and breakfast, and i must say it will be very hard to top! thanks so much!!!

This was one of the best B and B experiences. Clean, well appointed rooms( with great little touches i.e. earplugs, sewing kit, etc...), amazing breakfast and fantastic views of the wine country. Kristen and Curt are exceptional hosts and very accomodating. Will definately make this my place to stay in the Wine Country.

My husband and I stayed at the Chehalem Ridge B&B in late August, and it was just perfect. The view from our room was stunning - we were able to watch the hot air balloons from our balcony. The room was comfortable and well-appointed, and Kristin answered any questions we had about local dining, wine tours, or activities. Breakfast was outstanding - fresh and delicious. I was very pleased with our visit, and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this B&B again.

We had the opportunity to stay for 2 nights at Chahalem Ridge B & B. It takes a little work to find the place but once you are there you are rewarded with a wonderful view of the valley. We enjoyed our early morning views of the valley and the local wildlife from the deck that extended from our room. Our room was a little on the small side. The bathroom was more that adequate in size. Kristin and her husband were very helpful in planning our daily adventures to the local wineries and vineyards. We enjoyed the breakfeasts on the deck each morning overlooking the valley. Chehalem Ridge is another very good example of why we choose to stay at B & B's instead of commercial hotels. A good value for the money.

We spend two wonderful nights at chehalem ridge in august 2010. The accommodations were first rate. The view and food were worth the stay alone. I do want to praise the mattresses that they provided. They were heavenly. All too often places and long on appearances and short on practical. Not chehalem ridge bnb. The sleep was as good as everything else. See you again someday....

Nice private room with spectacular views. Great location on the top of the mountain and very convenient to wine country wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants, etc. Weather permitting, breakfast on the deck looking out over Newberg, vineyards, hot air balloons was a great way to start the day.

I enjoyed my stay very much. I needed a relaxing retreat and got exactly what I was hoping for. The Inn was spotless, the bed very comfy, breakfast very good and the view SPECTACULAR. The Innkeepers were very nice. An earlier reviewer complained that Kristin was rude. She was just fine,we had a couple of very nice talks.
5 on August 13, 2010
When you drive down the gravel driveway, you can already see the Willamette Valley below you and you know that you are in for a treat. Kristin, the innkeeper, greeted us at the door with her friendly smile and showed us around her beautiful home. The room that we stayed in was very comfortable and well appointed. The house has no immediate neighbor and is nice and quiet. Top notch restaurants and wineries are only 10 to 20 minutes down the hill. But the view was so attractive that we decided to bring some food home after wine tasting and ate at the patio one evening. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruits (some grown on the property), home made jams and bread, and tasty quiche. We only stayed for a couple of nights but wished that we had time for more.
4.4 on August 11, 2010
Beautiful home, great views! We had a great stay for 2 nights and will be returning as soon as possible!
4.6 on August 10, 2010
My husband and I loved our stay at Chehalem Ridge. The room was spacious, clean and very nicely decorated. The view from our private patio was just breathtaking. It was quiet and relaxing, but close to the hustle and bustle of McMinnville and other downtown areas. We can't wait to plan another trip to wine country and stay at Chehalem Ridge. I would go back just for the delicious breakfast!
4.6 on August 09, 2010
We were coming to Oregon for the IPNC, and wanted a relaxing B&B to add to the enjoyment of the trip, well we found it at Chehalem Ridge. The views were spectacular, breakfast on the deck, and the easy of getting to the vineyards all made for an enjoyable time.
4.6 on July 30, 2010
We had the most fabulous time on our honeymoon in OR with 3 days at Chehalem Ridge B&B. Room was great with a fantastic view over the valley. Our hosts were very nice and helpful, pointing out several wineries to visit that we might not have gotten too. The food was fantastic. Definitely worth putting into your travel plans if you plan to go to the Willamette Valley for wine tasting...
4.6 on July 17, 2010
We arrived Friday night and were pleasantly greeted by Kristin. She showed us our room, and we were quite excited to be staying there for the weekend. Coming late after work, we were a little hungry and excited to try some local restaurants. Kristin didn't hesitate to tell us a few top choices and show us the large array of menus they had on hand for their tenants -- making our decision much easier! We slept wonderfully, as the rays of sunshine gently awakened us from the skylight above our bed. We wasted no time and headed down the stairs for breakfast. The excitement felt was like that of Christmas morning! (Or similar respective holidays.) There was fresh, hot coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Being from Seattle, coffee was our choice. Breakfast was AMAZING. Three courses of delicious food made from fresh, local supplies. And to think, we'd get to enjoy the whole event once again the next morning! :) After breakfast, we headed to the deck overlooking many vineyards below to finish our coffee. It was a little chilly, and before we knew it, we had the heater on and Kristin's husband, Curt, was bringing us some blankets to warm up in. We felt like royalty, indeed! Overall, it was a wonderfully carefree, romantic weekend. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean, the view gorgeous, and only surpassed by the delectable breakfasts. To stay somewhere else during a trip to the Willamette Valley would surely be starting the trip off with a disadvantage. We highly recommend this wonderful, cliff-dwelling B&B! As commonly heard on these reviews, but heartfelt-ly meant in this one, we will be back!!
4.6 on July 16, 2010
We highly recommend this place. We had a great time, wished it could've been longer than just 1 night.
4.6 on July 14, 2010
My husband and I were in the Willamette Valley for just one night, but Kristen and Curt made us feel like we were at home! We stayed in the Wine Country room, which was very luxurious. The views from the B&B are AMAZING, and they make great use of their space. The food was delicious as well - we will definitely return to Chehalem Ridge B&B if we're in the area again!
2.4 on June 30, 2010
After reading the amazing reviews for this b&b we thought this would be the perfect place for our honeymoon. We planned for five nights but it wasn't what we hoped and by the third night we decided to leave in hopes of saving at least the last couple of our days of vacation. The place was beautiful and I think that it would have been perfect for just a weekend stay with the days spent in wine country but for a place that we were hoping to spend our days cuddled up together it felt less than comfortable. I think for me it just didn't feel warm and welcoming. Perhaps it was that we had just come from an amazing b&b experience in Westport, WA where we were truly made to feel at home and were hoping for a similar experience . . . but whatever the reason we felt that the innkeeper just wasn't very approachable and as the little problems built up and began to ruin our time together we thought it was best to just go. The view was gorgeous and the room was beautiful, however, the first night we found long blond hairs in our bed and tub (and neither of us are blond) and that morning there was hair in my husband's muffin. After the second night I needed the sheets changed and the response of the innkeeper made me feel like I was being a bother . . . Ultimately, we felt like we were paying too much money for a way too special of a vacation time to feel like an "inconvenience."

The view can't be beat. However, if you can not be at breakfast at listed time-its your loss. I could not be at breakfast at the stated time so after a strong request I was able to obtain coffee and a small breakfast roll. So we ended going to the store to buy breakfast for me. Also we were reprimanded for arriving early. It is a nice place as long as you do it her way.
Being a small bed and breakfast, we are limited in our breakfast service times so that we can provide a gourmet, 3 course breakfast. For those guests who leave early for business or early flights, we are happy to provide freshly baked muffins or scones and fruit. We strive to have a welcoming home when our guests arrive, which means taking time to clean. Early check in times can sometimes be accommodated with advanced notice. For those guests who arrive extremely early, I may offer some good-natured chiding. While it is intended to be tongue-in-cheek, I apologize if it came across as a form of reprimand.
5 on June 17, 2010
My sister and I thought we would be adventurous and try a B&B. Boy, did we get lucky. When we first saw the view of the valley when we drove in the driveway, we thought it was beautiful. Add to that the wonderful room, breakfast, owners and guests and we want to come back. My sister bought her daughter and son-in-law a gift certificate for their anniversary. I'm sure they will love it too. Kristin was so nice and personable and she certainly serves a wonderful, delicious breakfast. Ymmm. I would recommend it highly.
5 on June 08, 2010
There were 2 couples in our group, and we all enjoyed wonderful rooms with great views, superb breakfasts, and friendly and genial innkeepers. We will return.

Chehalem B&B was only our second time staying at a B&B and my wife and I definitely enjoyed it more than staying at a name-brand road-side hotel. Chehalem B&B has a great hostess, great food, confortible bed and a beautiful cozy house. I would recommend staying here anytime you're passing through.
4.8 on May 05, 2010
My husband and I were extremely pleased with our choice of the Chehalem Ridge B&B during our visit to Oregon's wine country. The view was exceptional, reminding us of equal views in Italy! We stayed in the Wine Country room which had the very best view and an awesome bathroom. Kristin made us a wonderfully tasty and filling breakfast. I would recommend this B&B and would definitely choose to stay there again.
5 on May 04, 2010
Kristin and Curt are gracious hosts and will go out of their way to make sure your whole visit to Oregon is a smooth one. They helped us plan our route to Washington around a storm that was blowing through during our road-trip. The Inn itself is immaculate, beautiful, and furnished to provide a perfect, relaxing getaway. As for the view - just go and see it for yourself. Finally, the breakfast...even better than the view!!
5 on April 26, 2010
In addition to having a phenominal view (which we could experience due to the clear nights), the house was beautiful. Kristen & her husband worked really hard in making it a place you want to come back to after a hard day of wine tasting. Her breakfasts were very yummy (and healthy!). Not only did Kristen give us great wineries recommendations, but her restaurant recommendations were exactly what we were looking for. Our two day stay was, all in all fabulous. We will definitely come back when we are in the area. Laurie & Jim St. Pierre, Laguna Hills, CA

My wife and I just returned from 4 nights in Oregon, 2 of which were at the Chehalem Ridge (the other 2 were in Hood River). Upon arrival, the views from the parking lot were amazing, and the view from our private deck (Wine Country Room) was even better than the way it looked on their website. Kristin prepared wonderful breakfasts which were not too light nor too filling. We enjoyed lounging on our deck, the larger common deck, and in the living area for one morning, and very much enjoyed the cookies she had out during each pass through the living room. The location, while off the main area of Newberg, is wonderful and very close to many wineries and dining options. But be prepared for the drive up – this place is on Mountain Top Road, and they aren’t kidding – it’s the top of the valley (otherwise you wouldn’t get those views). Kristin also had available several menus for us to review prior to leaving for meals and politely steered us toward what we wanted (my wife liked this, I prefer a more blunt explanation of a place – cheap & good, good but overpriced, crappy, etc. Just tell me how it is so I can go.). Be aware that driving from Newberg to Dundee can be a mess after 3:00. Kristin warned us of this (tho we forgot!!) and has a map available to take the back roads instead of the main drag – this became very useful so as to not waste our limited time in the area sitting in traffic (think Napa but worse). Overall, Chehalem Ridge has an absolutely stunning location, clean comfortable rooms, beautiful bathrooms, and tasty food. I rate value as Met My Expectations as I honestly expect to pay $150-$200 for this type of B&B (tho I would pay lower if I can find it!). I also rate Cleanliness as Met My Expectations as for that amount of money, it sure better be clean!

What a fabulous place! The owners are absolutely lovely. It's a great deal for a lovely weekend getaway. The breakfasts are amazing! The rooms are clean and roomy and the entire place has a wonderful atmosphere. My boyfriend and I visited as a vacation in between college terms and were blown away by the experience.

My wife and I stayed at the Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast during a recent trip to Oregon wine country. The house sits high on the ridge above the town of Newberg. We found every aspect of our trip to be outstanding. The views from the B&B are amazing and our breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend staying in Newberg at the Chehalem Ridge B&B if you find yourself in Oregon wine country. Thanks Kristin for your hospitality. Josh and Sarah Arvada, CO

We spent one night at Chehalem Ridge and would like to return with friends. Kristin and her husband were warm and welcoming, the food was delicious. We stayed during off season so we were the only guests yet we still enjoyed our time. We were tired to Kristin told us where we could go to pick up cheese/crackers/wine for a light supper. It was a relaxed fun evening at Chehalem Ridge. The view is beautiful. The decor lovely.

A warm welcome, cozy well decorated room with a sweeping view of the valley below. The breakfast was delicious, and all tailored to my daughter's and my dietary needs. Wonderful!

My stay at the bed and breakfast was a week long relaxing and gorgeous view. I would like to stay there when I return to visit my nephew and his family. I'm disabled and I would recommend it to my disabled friends and family. Thank you for caring for my family and me.

I planned this trip as a surprise for my husband for his birthday. We've just begun managing our own restaurant and night club, and hardly have had a moments peace in over six months - so we really needed to just escape and watch the world go on around us... Chehalem was PERFECT. We stayed in the Wine Country Room, as we planned to visit several wineries during our stay. The view was romantic and lovely, the jacuzzi luxuruiously devine, and the bed cozy and comfy as could be - not a squeak or a shake in the frame. Kristin's recommendations on dining were helpful and accurate, though we did end up ordering pizza and planing Uno in the room with some of the wine we'd gotten earlier! Breakfast in the morning was perfectly portioned and scrumptious with poached pears and pumpkin pancakes with candied pecans... mmm! I'm excited to hear that by this time next year most of what is served will be grown in their own garden too. I would definately recommend Chehalem Ridge to anyone visiting Oregon Wine Country - it's was everything we wanted for our getaway.
5 on November 11, 2009
We learned about Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast through an article in Sunset Magazine. It exceeded our expectations in every way from helpful suggestions to boutique wineries, to fabulous gourmet breakfasts, to stunning views and tastefully decorated rooms. Don't even hesitate to make a reservation!
5 on November 01, 2009
My wife and I wanted to spend four days in wine country, and I searched long and hard for a nice hotel. Unable to find one, we decided to try a B&B. This was a first for both of us and I was sceptical for the usual reasons. Chehalem Ridge turned out to be everything it appeared to be on the internet, and more. We stayed in the Coast room on the main floor with our own balcony. It was spotless and very private. The views from our balcony at sunset were spectacular. Kristen is a wonderful inkeeper and a fantastic chef. The breakfasts were all incredible. I am afraid our experience there may have spoiled us for any future B&B stays. I cannot believe there are many other places equal to this. We would definitely recommend Chehalem Ridge to anyone who like us is a little unsure about staying in a B&B.

Exceeded expectations, from the rooms and service to the breakfast. Would recommend it on any visit to Oregon wine country. Ted A

Though the husbands are rather B&B resistant, it was the wives making the plans. However, we all enjoyed our stay. Beyond the spectacular view we found cozy, comfortable surroundings and scrumptious breakfasts to start our days. Our hosts' lunch suggestions were perfect. The Newberg location was convenient while feeling "out of the way" private. Highly recommended.

When planning our trip to the Willamette Valley, we searched the internet for a B & B. That can be a little risky sometimes-things are not always what they appear to be. But not Chehalem Ridge B&B. The house is gorgeous. The view is spectacular. The Newberg/Dundee area is a fun town. Not to mention the food and hospitality of Kristin. You can tell that this B&B means the world to her and it shows. I only wish our stay could have been longer. We will tell all our friends about Chehalem Ridge and whenever we visit Oregon again, we will only stay here.
4.8 on October 12, 2009
wonderfull time and views

We loved the view, the room was very comfy. The owners had much good advice about restaurants and sightseeing, but also gave us plenty of alone-time. We stayed in the Oregon room which does not have it's own deck, but no problem - the deck off the living room was fabulous and we drank wine there every evening (under the heaters!). Breakfasts were outstanding, coffee made early and very good, beautiful property and room.

4.4 on September 17, 2009
Found this B&B online and was enticed by the view - sitting atop a ridge overlooking the valley - shown on the website. Was a bit skeptical because you never know what its really like until you get there. Well, the real thing was even better than I expected...absolutely stunning! Perfect homebase for a weekend of winetasting. The innkeepers were very gracious, breakfast was great, room was immaculate. All in all, a great experience.

If you need a view that will take your breath away, a quiet that will let you hear your own breath and a location that literally seems like you are on top of the world, this is the place. My wife and I spent 10 days in Oregon. Our first two days were in Portland. Our first night outside Portland was at Chehalem Ridge. We wanted to arrive early to enjoy the view. We weren't disappointed. For as far as the eye can see, we were treated to the spectacular view of the valley below. We introduced ourselves to Krisitin and she gave us the tour. She was very friendly and made us feel at home (bring your sense of humor, she has a good one). The room had a great view of the valley, as well, and had a private balcony for us to enjoy the view. Our room was clean and very nicely decorated. We took advantage of the two person jacuzzi tub, a nice way to unwind. After that, we took a glass of wine out on the balcony and actually were lucky enough to enjoy a few shooting stars (very romantic!). In the morning, we were treated to a great breakfast. Kristin made eggs and bacon (the bacon in Oregon is amazing). The coffee was delicious and and we enjoyed it with a very special treat. We learned that, unique to Oregon, there is a jelly made with Marion berries. We had never had them before. Very tasty, you must try it. All in all, even though it was only a one night stay, we are left with great memories and we highly recommend Chehalem Ridge B&B. Be sure you stay there when you're in the area, you won't regret it!!!

The wine conuntry room was perfect. Views are fantastic
5 on August 28, 2009
Chehalem Ridge is perched on a hill side with a commanding view of the valley below, which is a patch work of farms, wineries, and the small town of Newberg. Innkeeper Kristin Fintel is a great source of information on area wineries, places to eat, and activities. Kristin is welcoming without over-whelming her visitors. She makes you feel that you've made a new friend.

This B&B is totally charming and comfortable. The owner's were gracious and unobtrusive. When we arrived, they gave us tips on what to do and even recommended we come back for a fireworks display - what incredible views. The rooms are immaculate and well thought out with everything you could want to relax. We didn't eat breakfast with them because we had an early morning balloon ride, but they set the coffee maker so we would have some to go when we left at 5 am. When we arrived home, they owner's had taken photos of our hot air balloon from the house and even burned a copy to CD.

Chehalem Ridge B & B was lovely and the view of the valley was spectacular from the high vantage point. The fog rolling in was an extra bonus. We were also directed to some wonderful wineries and a very good restaurant in the village of Dundee, very close by. We will definitely stay again when we are again in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon.

The photographs on this site show exactly what you can expect at Chehalem Ridge. Gorgeous! We spent two nights in the Rose Garden Room and plan to return when next in the area. Kristin is a delightful host who makes delicious breakfasts.

My husband and I recently spent a week at Chehalem ridge over Memorial Day weekend. I originally fell in love with the pictures of the location and the rooms, and I was not disappointed. We stayed in the Oregon Coast room and the view took my breath away. This was the perfect stress relief, making me feel free and alive. We watched birds, balloons at dawn, and spectacular sunsets from our room and balcony. We anticipated breaksfast each morning with different home baked breads, fresh fruit, savory and sweet main dishes. On the day we left, Kristin had supplied a "to go" breakfast with our favorite chai scones. The unexpected plus was the fun we had with Kristin, who was always ready to talk about our day, give us advice for places to visit, tell stories about the inn and the area. We kept asking about flora and fauna, and she would find out details for us--even braving barking dogs to get a sample of an interesting tree bloom for us. She made us feel like we were staying with a friend from the first night that we arrived, tired and hungry. The inn is wonderful, the area is beautiful, the wines are delicious. It is a long way from Ohio to Oregon, but we will return.

I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful bed and breakfast. Kristin is fantastic and the setting is beautiful. Her breakfasts were fabulous and plentiful. The rooms are cozy with balconies off each room. The common areas are conducive to small get-togethers with friends to share the great wine of the region. Can't wait to come back

We have been visiting our daughter and her family in Portland for 10 years, and this year we decided to include a stay in the Willamette Valley wine area. After searching a number of web sites, we decided to take a chance on the Chehalem Ridge B&B. That turned out to be one of our best vacation decisions. It is a small, four room, B&B, with a very big view and wonderful accomodations. It is less than two years old (we found that out after we arrived), but it felt like a "home away from home". Kristin, the innkeeper, is a spectacular chef, and her breakfasts are worth the visit, alone. However, the quality of the rooms, the decks, and the public areas create an experience that exceeds what we have found at other B&Bs. Obviously, we left with a commitment to return and to tell our friends about our experience!
4.4 on May 28, 2009
This was an 27th Anniversary celebration and our first trip to the Oregon wine country. Chehalem Ridge was a wonderful experience with gorgeous views, great service and romantic rooms---can't wait to return.

My husband and I stayed at the Chehalem Ridge B&B for 2 nights in April in the Rose Garden Room. Although it took a good 20 minutes from OR-99W to reach the B&B, the view from our room was worth every minute of driving. The B&B is perched atop Chehalem Mountain with breathtaking views of the Willamette Valley. The inn itself is extremely cozy and relaxed and Kristin made sure our every need was met. Breakfasts were a fine dining experience and started with a fruit dish (such as a poached apple) and a homemade pastry (we enjoyed lemon poppyseed bread and carrot muffins while there). The main courses at breakfast were truly gourmet -- smoked salmon quiche one day and baked stuffed french toast the next. It was great to have full tummies before we started our days of wine tasting. I highly recommend the Chehalem B&B if you are visiting Oregon's wine country.

We are just back from spending a night in the "wine country" room. It was beautiful with a wonderful two-person jetted tub and the most amazing view of the valley. We had our own private porch with heat on it, so we could even sit out there in the late evening and enjoy. Breakfast was wonderful and the innkeeper was the perfect blend of attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend it. We'll definitely be back.

My wife and I are fortunate to live in Portland, just an hour from some of Oregon's finest wineries. Throughout the year, we take day trips to Newberg, Dundee and Carlton to sample wine and stock our cellar. Recently, we planned a weekend escape at a reasonable B&B so we could enjoy some tastings without having to rush home. Chehalem Ridge proved to be an ideal location. It's close to many outstanding vineyards while offering a fantastic view of the valley from above. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were cozy and clean. Kristin made sure our experience was one we will recommend to all of our friends. I have written a more detailed review at my blog, which I encourage you to read at http://myclam.wordpress.com/ Mike Lambe Portland, OR

We stayed at this B&B to do some wine-tasting in the area, and had an excellent experience. Friendly & helpful hosts, fabulous views of the area, quiet and relaxing. Very new and clean. Our Wine Country room had a truly exceptional bathroom, very nicely decorated. Small downside was lack of drawers for clothing. Breakfasts were excellent. Overall a superb B&B; we'll definitely be back!

My son and his fiance surprised me on a visit to Portland with a weekend of wine tasting a 2 nights in this B&B. The rooms were lovely and well appointed. Breakfasts were tasty and Kristin was a friendly and welcoming hostess.

We loved this B&B. We visited the wineries on Thanksgiving Day weekend with are friends. Kristen was very friendly, witty and a wonderful host. She made us feel at home, very helpful and made delicious breakfasts. We will be back! It is a must place to visit. The views are awesome.

I stayed 1 night at Chehalem Ridge once in the spring and once in the fall in different rooms. Each stay was a unique and special experience. The view is one of the best in Willamette Valley. The house is beautiful and you feel right at home upon arrival.

This place was wonderful. We stay in lots of B&B's and this one is great. Our room had the most perfect view and the innkeeper was very friendly without being in your face so to speak. We loved it and can hardly wait to go again. Very close to lots of winery's

Chehalem Ridge is beautiful, contemporary, warm, inviting and comfortable. The view of the surrounding countryside is fabulous. Kristin is an extremely talented chef. Her knowledge of the farms, vineyards and points of interest in the area made our visit a wonderful experience.

Wonderful place for a get away weekend with the girls. Centrally located for great access to restaurants and winerys. Rooms are beautiful, food is fantastic, view is awesome, and Kristin is a very accomodating host.The fireplace in the living room is warm and cozy for those chats with the ladies while enjoying the view and a glass of wine.

The views, the food, the cleanliness, and the location make this the best B&B I have ever stayed in on my many trips to Oregon. It is close to the wineries and some of the best restaurants in the world. AND it is only 30 minutes from the Portland airport!

Party of six took three rooms. Kristin was a gracious hostess. Rooms were modern and tasteful, view was spectacular. Breakfasts were creative and excellent. We will definitely return when in the area.

We recently stayed here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and were very impressed with the view, the cleanliness of everything, the friendliness of the owners and the great breakfast! We'll definately be back!

Beautiful views accompanied with great service and hospitality. Thank you! we enjoyed our trip to Oregon.

Our week long stay at Chehalem was wonderful! Kristin is a very gracious and considerate innkeeper and her breakfasts were delicious. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the area's sights (including maps and brochures of most things to see in the surrounding areas) she has every detail covered...umbrellas, picnic baskets, fridge, corkscrew, board games and cookies. The entire B&B was immaculately clean and the views cannot be beat. We would definately return to Chehalem B&B and because it is so centrally located, definately recommend it to anyone going to the Oregon wine country.

Just stayed at this fantastic new B&B with my husband as we wine tasted in the Willamette Valley. This place was AWESOME! Clean, Tasteful, & Young (no doilies!). There are only a few rooms (therefore few guests at one time.. a plus), and a view that's hard to tear yourself away from. We stayed in the Oregon Trail Room (you can see all the rooms easily from their website). It was the only room without a private balcony/view.. but the deck off of the living room is always open with tables & chairs, etc- so it wasn't an issue. Breakfast was also great... served out on the deck weather providing... the B&B owner is a culinary school grad that whips up yummy interesting dishes (chai scones, baked eggs, Estate fruit parfaits). Prices were also extremely reasonable (and no big hotel tax in Oregon). We're definitely planning on going back. A real find....

We had a fabulous experience at the Chehalem Ridge B&B. The inn is comfortable, impeccably clean and has incredible views of the wine country. Kristin was a great host. She was very helpful and went out of her way to accomodate our special dietary needs. Her homemade cookies and gourmet breakfast were both delicious. We stayed in the coast room and thoroughly enjoyed the views---the heater on the deck made it even more comfortable to stay outside after sunset! I've stayed in alot of b&b's over the years, but Chehalem Ridge is by far, the best!

We spent 3 nights at Chehalem Ridge in early August. What a wonderful place! Spotless room, unbelievable views, great breakfasts. Convenient to everything but far enough away to insure relaxation. Kristin is a gracious hostess who knows the area well. Take advantage of her suggestions. We recommend Chehalem Ridge without hesitation.

Kristen gives guests all the comforts of home, and many more. Who could match the idyllic view, the delicious muffins/breakfast, the charming decor, the comfortable rooms with private baths, private balconies overlooking the valley, and did I mention the view? One morning during our stay we watched hot air balloons rise through wisps of fog. A return to the Oregon wine country would definitely include Chehalem Ridge B&B.

The beds are fabulous, I will buy a Temperpedic because of the stay. Breakfast was wonderful - salmon quiche was to die for.

My husband and I stayed at Chehalem Ridge B&B to celebrate our 5 year anniversary (we came all the way from St. Louis). We saw it on the website, but these photos just do not do it justice. The B&B has an amazing view as well as an amazing innkeeper who is a fabulous cook! The rooms are very clean and the bathbooms are immaculate. We highly recommend Chehalem Ridge B&B!

We had an amazing time at this peaceful retreat overlooking Oregon winecountry. The grounds were beautifully kept and boasted many of the local perennials and native plants. Inside, the inn keepers were very welcoming and accomodating. "The Oregon Coast" room, was very tidy and decorated perfectly to match the theme. We had a Gorgeous view of the valley and coastal range, it was magnificent. A romantic fireplace, very soft sheets and cozy robes were just a few of the amenities provided for our stay. When we returned from dinner, home made chocolate chunk cookies and tea/hot chocolate awaited us, yummy! We slept soundly in the comfortable bed, the fireplace illuminting our room and providing warmth through the night. The next morning we indulged in a delicious gourmet breakfast and fresh, hot coffee - a must! Our stay, although too short, was very restful and enjoyable. We will definitely visit Chahalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast next time we are in Oregon. Thanks, Kristin & Curt!

I will stay at this bed and breakfast during every future trip to Newburg. The location of this B & B is outstanding and the views are tremendous. We stayed in the Wine County Room which is the largest of the four available rooms. Everything seemed brand new. Our bathroom Jacuzzi tub for two was a treat, the linens were soft and the view from our balcony was breathtaking. For such a nominal fee, staying at this B & B is a no brainer. Some of the motels in town were the same price if not more than this pristine retreat just a few minutes from town. I would recommend this for anyone!

I absolutely loved this B&B. I'm not usually a fan of B&Bs but this one was adorable! I've told everyone I know about it.

After an afternoon at the vineyards, we topped off (literally, a mountaintop!) our day with an overnight at Chehalem Ridge. My daughter and I loved our Oregon Coast room - so comfortable and tastefully decorated. Kristin is a gracious, helpful hostess with just the right amount of interaction with her guests. Our breakfast was delicious and we also loved the many books to browse through and downstairs den for games or movies.

What a fabulous stay we had at Chehalem Ridge. Kristin was very friendly and helpful. She directed us to local dining establishments and parks. Our breakfast was outstanding. We had salmon quiche in a cheddar walnut crust, chai scones, and yogurt/fruit parfait. The views are spectacular and the property itself is lovely. Definitely recommendable. We'd come back soon if we didn't live in Boston!

Our stay with friends at Chehalem Ridge last month was delightful. The rooms were immaculate, cheerfully decorated and the beds and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. Kristin and Curt were great hosts and very accomodating. Each breakfast was delicious and interesting--we missed them when we moved on. The view was outstanding, in spite of dreary weather when we were in the area. A great B & B. We wish we were closer so we could visit again soon!

If you really want a feel of Oregon, this is a great B&B. Located high above the vinyards and valley about 30 min. from Portland, you have a view that is nothing short of breathtaking. Rooms are sparkling clean, with a modern touch (not your old style warm and fuzzy decor but clean and refreshing), the hosts were great and breakfast was mouthwatering--a salmon kisch and bunch of other nice side dishes. I stayed there on the weekend when I went to see my son graduate from college, and it was well worth it. Bring your camera and lots of fim (better yet, a digital camera and you can shoot all day).

We just returned from spending 3 days with friends in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and we think we found the PERFECT accommodations. We love staying at small B & B's and this one suited all our needs. We each enjoyed the magnificent, breathtaking views of the valley below from our private balconies. Because it's often windy, each balcony had built in heaters, if we needed them! The rooms were fresh and clean, and gave us all some new decorating ideas. All 4 themed rooms were terrific and one was even designed for Handicap accessibility. We sat by the fireplace in this contemporary home with homemade cookies from Kristin, the Proprietor, as she helped us plan our daily outings. She knew so many of the wineries and restaurants in the area and gave us excellent suggestions and directions. She and her husband Curt were a delight. Kristin's breakfasts were lovely and delicious and we would encourage anyone traveling to the area to seek out this new Bed and Breakfast.
