We found this lovely, charming, B&B through a neighbor of Beth and Mark's. When my husband and I arrived, after having had a terrific lunch at a marvelous bakery in a nearby town, per Beth's recommendation, Beth greeted us warmly. We had already talked several times by phone, and I think we were both predisposed to like each other. One of their signs says something to the effect that we arrive as strangers and leave as friends. It was certainly the case for us.

The house was built by Mark and Beth out of timber cut from their 40 acres. Post-and-beam construction, everything was done expertly and attractively. As you come up the windy drive, you pass Mark's sawmill and "outdoor studios."

The addition for the B&B rooms was done with the help of others, but still clearly has the designing hand of Beth and Mark.

Our room was lovely, on the ground floor with an amazing bath, comfy bed, small fridge, a terrace just outside, and thoughtful ammenities, including TWO luggage racks!

The breakfasts were superb! Mark is the chef, although he left his culinary studies to pursue his love of the outdoors and a life with the Forestry Service. His omelet, made with eggs from their own hens, was very tasty, the potatoes flavorful, the fruit that Beth had picked up fresh from a local stand, juicy and delicious, and the bacon, beautifully crisp the way i like it, but the way most places cannot (or will not) achieve.

Conversation was lively and interesting, and we found many things in common.

After doing some tastings in the Willamette Valley, we decided that we did not need another full meal, so we opted to return to the B&B and snack on cheese and wine that we had bought and brought.

When I asked if we could get a plate and knife, on her own, Beth thoughtfully brought some crackers I could eat, along with fresh tomatoes from their garden, and napkins. Don't laugh, when one travels, one's supply of napkins can be depleted.

And on our last morning, Mark returned from cutting winter firewood with a couple of containers full of blackberries.

Beth cooked that morning while Mark was still out cutting - French toast served in ramekins so that my husband could get a gluten-full version, whilst I had the gluten-free one. There was real maple syrup, and we came away, once again, quite sated.

And yes, there is WiFi, but realistically, when one is in the country, it is slow...anywhere in the world. Still, it worked for our needs.

We are already planning on returning next year! Thank you, Beth and Mark!!!

Room Tip: Any room will do!

We stayed here for one night this past weekend, and wish we could have stayed longer! We don't normally do B&B's, but after reading the other rave reviews and looking at photos, we decided to give it a try. SOOO glad we did! We had plenty of privacy in our own room complete with small fridge and private bathroom, as well as a sliding door onto their patio area with a gorgeous view of the forest. Just getting there is part of the fun with the lovely drive, and trip up the long gravel driveway! (Especially when we were coming back from one of the best dinners EVER at a nearby winery in the evening, and seeing the full moon peek out from between the trees as we reached the top...) This is a couple that believe in DETAILS - everything from excellent signage to the cozy touches everywhere, such as a coffee maker, flickering LED candles, ceiling fans, etc., plus everything one could possibly dream of at the scrumptious breakfast. The fact that Mark built the place is incredibly impressive, but it is also spotlessly clean and the room we were in had minimal decor so that the beauty of the workmanship was the welcomed spotlight.
This is a place to go for peace and quiet. We took a walk (hike? One needs to be in shape for this!) around their property up the old logging trail (wear sturdy shoes and long pants to protect from briars) and loved hearing the natural sounds of their nearby chicken coop, birds, and leaves rustling in the breeze.

There is nothing bad to say about this off the beaten path BnB. Beth and Mark were such interesting hosts. We loved sitting on the patio learning about Mark's amazing 9 lives. Beth brought us a carafe of ice water on our arrival. The house itself is beautiful handcrafted woodwork at it's best. The entire place was VERY clean. We stayed in the Douglas Fir room which had a ceiling fan, a floor fan, and a small frig. The 2 french doors open completely with screens, so we had wonderful fresh air all night. Breakfast was baked pecan french toast by Beth and spicy seasoned potatoes and bacon cooked by culinary school wonder Mark. We look forward to staying again when we need to travel to Eugene.

Room Tip: The Douglas Fir room has a patio and faces the parking area, but with only 3 guest rooms, that was not an issue for us.

This was the BEST B&B my husband and I have stayed at. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the beautiful wineries, sitting on the covered porch, and enjoyed chatting with Mark and Beth. They are the sweetest! The Inn is beautiful, the views are beautiful, and the food was wonderful. I could go on and on about how wonderful everything was! I was actually reluctant to leave a review only because I want to be able to go back and I am worried they will become so busy we won’t be able to get a reservation!! ☺️

This was our first BnB and what an wonderful experience. Mark and Beth were amazing hosts. The long gravel driveway was handled easily by our big motorcycles, but Beth was kind enough to lend her vehicle to us when we went to grab dinner. The room was lovely, the bed was comfy and the ambiance was soothing. Breakfast was off the charts and the other house guests were really friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate in staying here again and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great BnB experience.
