Shopping Small adds up to Big Things. The coronavirus and our state’s wildfires have upended daily life in Oregon, with travel and tourism being the hardest-hit industries. Small businesses have been crippled and are counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.
The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild asked our innkeepers to share what’s not to miss in their communities: restaurants, shops, parks, and we’d present a series of blog posts, extending a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.
Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast shares ‘besides having over 10 winery tasting rooms in downtown Newberg, we are home to George Fox University and the childhood home of Herbert Hoover.’
Hoover-Minthorn House Museum.
Chehalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast sits atop Chehalem Mountain, overlooking the Willamette Valley and is only about 3 miles from downtown Newberg. The inn’s four guest rooms and one suite, all with en suite bathrooms, offer a peaceful retreat between adventures with spectacular views of both mountain and valley. Book your stay at Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast though their secure online reservation system then set out to Shop Small in Newberg, Oregon.
‘The abundance of 4+ star restaurants and eateries will make your choice difficult: for lunch we suggest Good Company: amazing cheeses, meats and some cheese & charcuterie-based sandwiches. For dinner we suggest Subterra. Our favorite appetizer: baked brie with Maple Fig Bourbon filling
‘Newberg is a friendly place to gather, shop & play. Shop for women’s clothing and housewares at Lineage. For fine art, including ceramics, wood and jewelry its Art Elements. Pulp & Circumstances has lots of gift ideas and a lovely selection of cards. Enjoy a bike rental experience or wine tour with Newberg Cycle and Skate.
Champoeg State Heritage Area features a rare combination of history, nature, and recreation. Situated south of Newburg along the scenic Willamette River, Champoeg’s forests, fields, and wetlands recreate the landscape of a bygone era.
We’d like to extend an invitation to Visit Newberg and Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast and to Shop Small on November 28, 2020, any day really, because shopping at a family-owned business such as an inn of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild or purchasing specialty items from your favorite, local online business or store helps to promote more vibrant communities. We thank you in advance.
Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is ready to share Oregon with you: it’s environment, culture, and heritage. Combine gracious hospitality with ambiance at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.
Wildfire and Air Quality Update: While the wildfires burning across Oregon are not completely extinguished they’re under control and cooler temperatures, good, strong onshore flow and most importantly, some measurable rain will help flush out the atmosphere, get rid of the last of the wildfire smoke. And the harvest of Pumpkins, Pinots and Pears will go on.
Hospitality Update: Oregon is one of the top states where it looks like social distancing is working. Our inns have been proactively doing everything in our power to keep you safe, welcome you back, as travel restrictions are being lifted. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they just might be.
