A Lovely B&B

5 on May 20, 2017

We spent two nights at Chehalem Ridge B&B on our first trip to Oregon and loved it. It is perched on its namesake ridge and our room overlooked the valley and the lights of Newburg at night. The proprietors are really nice and Kristin is a great cook, serving us wonderful breakfasts each morning. It is within short driving distance to dozens of wineries and several small towns with great places to eat. We especially enjoyed our conversations with the people at Bergstrom and Aramenta Cellars wineries. Highly recommended!

Awesome views and comfort. Loved the High Desert Room.

2 Nights in Newberg

5 on May 17, 2017

Having just spent 2 nights in Napa CA, we were not sure if we would enjoy Newberg and the Willamette Valley. Well, truth is we now love Newberg & the Willamette Valley. It offered everything Napa does sans the pretentious attitudes we saw consistently in Napa. Wine Tasting & our dining experiences were as good if not better than Napa. Chehalem Ridge easily exceeded our B & B in Napa, the views from our balcony were spectacular. Kristen, our host, made us feel very much at home. She offered up restaurant & winery suggestions that met our interests. All things considered our stay was fantastic ,

We recently stayed 2 nights at Chehalem Ridge it is located on a hill in Newberg offering outstanding, breath taking views of the entire valley. We had a private balcony outside our room that was wonderful for sharing wine at the end of the day. Our room was very comfortable with all amenities including a wonderful jacuzzi tub. Kristin is the perfect host-charming, attentive, knowledgeable about the area-restaurants, wineries and things to do. She is an amazing cook and the breakfasts were superb. The location is ideal for visiting all the wineries in Newberg and Dundee. We definitely will return. Sara L.

Wonderful B&B Experience!

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.

Wonderful Willamette Valley Get-away

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.

Awesome views

Oregon visit

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.

"George Fox Graduation Weekend"

5 on May 13, 2016

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.

Always a Wonderful Stay

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.
