The DreamGiver’s Inn was designed with guests’ comfort, enjoyment and relaxation in mind.

The DreamGiver’s Inn is a beautiful Oregon Bed & Breakfast situated on 10 acres with views of Mt. Hood, vineyards and the Southern Valley, just 7 miles from the I-5 Freeway.

The Inn features four distinct and specially appointed rooms, all with private baths, a bluetooth radio to stream music, spa robes, hypo-allergenic comforters and pillows, and a comfortable window seat that overlooks vineyards and the southern valley.  Enjoy several common areas inside and out!  Early risers are greeted with freshly brewed coffee and breads, then later to enjoy a full breakfast with others. Bottled water, coffee/tea, packaged snacks, wireless internet and wine tasting cards are complimentary throughout your entire stay. The Inn is conveniently located minutes from wineries, shopping and golf, and a perfect place for a memorable and romantic getaway.

Featured in the main common area is an oversized wood fireplace that warms the Inn on cold nights, and where guests can enjoy a glass of wine or read a great book.  And with our oversized front and back decks, along with our ten acres of grounds, guests will find many places to relax and unwind to enjoy the views, even Portland’s fabulous Mount Hood!

A full breakfast is included each morning and early morning risers are greeted with freshly brewed coffee and breads, then later join others for a hearty and full breakfast.  We use local farm fresh eggs and herbs, and serve wonderful Oregon berries in season. We also feature Oregon teas, jams and honey year-round.  We are able to accommodate your special meals or dietary restrictions–gluten free, vegan, vegetarian–just let us know!

Contemplating travel right now is confusing and frankly quite frightening. Peruse the web and you’ll oodles of advice from experts on how to navigate the changing landscape.

It’s obvious the innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild work in the travel industry and cleanliness has always been a high priority for our guests, our innkeepers and our employees. Our inns are inspected regularly by the State Health Departments and we inspect ourselves to make sure we’re following the guidelines presented by them. Food handler cards are a must and we’ve always taken pride in our cleanliness. Most all of us have instituted some new protocols in our inns, going above the practices we have in place:

One inn has replaced community cookie jars with individual jars in each guest room. Another added a little sanitation center at the front door with wipes and some bottled water. One tried to buy some jars of hand sanitizers but, of course, they were sold out so she made her own. Placed them in the rooms and guests are loving them. Used these wipes to wipe down every surface, keys, remotes, etc., and the rooms smell wonderful! Individually plated meals instead of family style. Some have brought in extra cleaning detail workers and are disinfecting surfaces continually.

So Keep Calm and Stay with Us!  And here, I’ll put in a little jingle about Book Direct. As small business owners we are already starting to feel the ripple effect of this health scare. Our innkeepers truly appreciate your direct bookings. When you commit to booking direct, you will enjoy many perks and amenities that you would not have access to when booking through a travel agency. Not to mention, you will almost always pay less and stay in some very sanitized inns.

We can’t guarantee you’ll not catch a travel bug but we’re doing everything in our power to make sure you don’t catch anything from us. Thank you for your trust in the inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. We will continue to provide the relaxing, comfortable, and immaculately clean solitude our guests expect and appreciate.

Book Direct

The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is excited to announce the launch of our Book > Direct platform where you, the traveler, while visiting our association site, can book directly with our inns, no middle man. Just put in your dates and select other filters. You’ll see our member properties that have availability on those dates including rates. Select an inn and go directly to the inn’s booking engine to complete your booking.

There are many great reasons why booking direct is beneficial for both the innkeeper and the guest.

  • You usually are guaranteed the lowest pricing available. An OTA (online travel agent) may be able to influence the price to get you to book but there is little they can do to improve your stay. Support your local businesses and #bookdirect!  You save on your getaway, receive personalized service and the business saves on steep commissions – it’s a win win
  • The truth is, these booking sites charge at least 15% of each booking to the small business owner and sometimes charge you a ‘service fee’  The independent innkeeper really appreciates it when you book directly with them through their website
  • You work directly with the property in case of changes, delays, or cancellations
  • You typically will not have to pay additional booking, change, or cancellation fees.
  • You will enjoy exclusive benefits and can take advantage of special deals, amenities, and packages
  • Innkeepers know their properties and the area better than anyone. If you have a specific need or wants more detailed information about a property, you’ll be able to communicate with our hosts directly who are well acquainted and who are well-equipped to address your needs.

Another great reason to book direct is because you will always have direct access to our innkeepers. There is no middle man. If a guest has a specific need or wants more detailed information about a property, you’ll be able to communicate with our hosts directly who are well acquainted with our locations and who are well-equipped to address your needs. As a privately owned small business we have the power to offer our guest world-class customer service via our staff and our business.

When you commit to Book>Direct, you will enjoy many perks and amenities that you would not have access to when booking through a travel agency.  Not to mention, you will almost always pay less!

As small business owners our innkeepers truly appreciate your direct bookings. This not only allows you a more specialized experience as you interact directly with us, you also benefit the local economy. How can you, the traveler Join the Movement and make sure you’re always booking direct?

Always verify you are on the bed and breakfast’s website before you book. When in doubt, call the Inn for assistance. Be careful using the blue Book a Room button in Google. It NEVER goes directly to the hotel website. It ALWAYS goes to an online travel agency such as Booking.com or Expedia, or one of their downstream booking partners

Pop the Question

Where to Pop the Question in Oregon

Here at the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild, we surveyed our innkeepers for their favorite location to “pop the question” in Oregon. Here’s our 3rd installment in time for Valentine’s Day. What could be better than bringing your newly bethrothed home to a cozy bed and breakfast after a romantic proposal?

A Winery in the heart of the Willamette Valley is the chosen perfect place of Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast. Here’s what they have to say:

‘We had one guest who had done a little bit of planning to make the beginning of their engagement special. He arranged with a winery for a private tasting with appetizers.

‘He asked her to marry him there, then came to our B&B afterwards.  He had also arranged for her best friend and her husband to stay at our B&B and they all went out to dinner that evening to celebrate. Festivities continued the next day with breakfast and more wine tasting. They were able to enjoy a whole weekend of getting engaged, with memories to keep for a lifetime.’

Wow!  How thoughtful!  Almost makes you want to get married again just for the experience! You’ll find a wide variety of quality Oregon bed and breakfast lodgings awaiting you in Oregon Wine Country. Thanks to Chehalem Ridge Bed & Breakfast for this wonderful proposal suggestion!

A little bit about Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast:  Perched on eight acres atop Chehalem Mountain overlooking the Willamette Valley and Coast Range, our B&B offers a peaceful retreat near wineries.  The contemporary house reflects the spirit of Oregon in each uniquely decorated room.  In-room details like fireplaces, jetted tubs and private decks with expansive views complete the experience. Full gourmet breakfast, accommodating to food allergies, is included.

Don’t forget that us innkeepers at the bed & breakfasts can be very sneaky and can help you design that perfect proposal.  Call on us anytime!

Welcome to Oregon’s Willamette Valley, probably most famous for its wines with hazelnuts, hops, mint, and Christmas trees. The Willamette Valley may be the most diverse agricultural region in the world, and an endless series of roadside stands gives visitors the chance to sample this diversity of tastes and flavors.

Sports enthusiasts can choose among kayaking, river rafting, biking, skiing, snowboarding and even llama trekking. For covered bridge fans, the valley is a special find with more than three dozen bridges located within the region.

In the Willamette Valley you can spend your entire day doing nothing. Relax on a comfortable front porch at one of 17 bed and breakfasts or in their gardens.

Or should you choose to do everything pair your exploration of Oregon’s wine country with a stay and combine uniquely styled accommodations that are close to the valley’s many events and attractions, many of which go far beyond award-winning wine.
