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.
Yamhill Vineyards Bed & Breakfast is a little known gem located in the heart of the Willamette Valley wine country. The Inn is surrounded by vineyards, spectacular views and has two large guest rooms, each with private baths, a loft and deck area, offering a relaxed country retreat. The Oregon Bounty breakfast features one of five varieties of vineyard grape juice and local produce.
Guests at Yamhill Vineyards Bed and Breakfast are encouraged to visit downtown Carlton, a little over 3 miles from the inn. Let the shopping begin at one of the nearly two dozen tasting rooms in Carlton. Given the city population of around 2000 people, Carlton has the highest tasting room per capita community in the United States. Now that’s something to boast about considering there are over 500 wineries in the Willamette Valley

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.
Hospitality Update: Oregon is one of the top states where it looks like social distancing is working.
