Chehalem Ridge B&B

Tripadvisor rocks for uncovering gems such as Chehalem Ridge B&B, which is perched on the top of the Chehalem hills in Willamette Valley. The view is gorgeous – overlooks the city of Newberg a 1000 foot below.

The innkeepers, Kristin and Curt, bought the land about a half dozen years ago, and built this gorgeous hillside B&B. They lived in the building until a couple months ago, when their house next door was completed. Jenny, a bubbly girl, moved in to help out as a part time innkeeper. She’s so friendly and gregarious that within a few minutes of chatting, she brought us downtown for a late evening tasting at Fox Farm, a small winery that makes only 1100 cases a year. She also brought us to Four Graces winery the next day for a tasting, and, before we left Monday morning, to Caravan Coffee for a cupping.

Back at the B&B, Kristin is a wonderful cook. Breakfast consists of some kind of fruit served up with rhubarb muffins (Sunday) and poppyseed bread (Monday). It was difficult not to gorge on the breads especially when slathered with their homemade jams, because we had a second course to follow. On Sunday, we had a delicious baked creamy egg and potato gratin topped with crunchy bits of parmesan and stalks of sweet asparagus, and on Monday, baked French toast with blueberries and a side of bacon. Mmm!

If we had more time to spare, we would have happily whiled away the morning lazing on their deck, watching the changing cloud patterns and the hot air balloons lazily float around in the sky. But I’d choked the itinerary full, so onwards we had to go.
