For over 28 years, Gerry Frank has been writing for The Oregonian Travel Section and getting to know the nooks and crannies of Oregon. He continues to travel and discover new Oregon gems and recently wrote about a member inn of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild, R. R. Thompson House.
Mr. Frank calls the R.R. Thompson House as a “small-town B&B” to check out! The review was published Sunday, March 10. He describes the inn: “a 1930s Colonial Revival estate, within walking distance of over two dozen Carlton wineries and tasting rooms plus restaurants and shops.”
The travel writer and book author notes: “The historic home features five floral- themed guest rooms and suites with private marble and granite bathrooms, whirlpool tubs and luxurious mattresses for restful slumber.
“Breakfast in the dining room is a feast for the senses and morning appetites; the signature brie cheese omelet or French toast with homemade fruit compote may be the choice du jour.”
The inn’s location in the picturesque Willamette Valley and its relative closeness to Portland and the Oregon Coast make the Thompson House the ideal location for your Pacific Northwest vacation.
