Oregon Bed and Breakfast Gift Certificates

A Gift of Relaxation through the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild

A Gift of Relaxation is the perfect gift for any occasion, any time of year. Rest and Relaxation in the form of a stocking stuffer? A wedding gift for the newly married? A graduation present? Employee holiday gifts? A much needed reprieve from the months of lockdown we’ve all endured? No two inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild are alike. One thing we all have in common: we are small, owner/manager operated, independent lodging properties. When you stay with us, or purchase a Gift Certificate, you are making a difference by supporting our businesses and our community.

Guests at Thyme and Tide Bed and Breakfast on the Oregon Coast recently used 6 gift Lodging Gift Vouchers for a two nights stay. Susan and Duane from Eugene receive the gift of relaxation every Christmas from their kids. This last year the kids asked them if they’d prefer something else and they replied, “no, we like the gift cards best.”

Duane and Susan chatted about their long history of enjoying Oregon B&B’s and using the OBBG Lodging Gift Vouchers. They prefer B&B’s when they travel and Duane even Inn-sat for a 7 room B&B, single handedly, long ago when the full time Innkeepers went on vacation.

They arrived in masks and social distancing due to Covid and were quickly able to relax at Thyme and Tide, confident that all safety protocols were being observed. The Three Capes Scenic Drive led them to Oceanside and Thyme and Tide where they had a sunny day to explore the Oceanside tunnel to Short Beach. Dungeness crab is abundant right now. They feasted on crab quiche, made with locally caught crab, veggies on the side and fresh cinnamon buns the first morning. The second day they requested Bacon and Eggs with English muffins and avocado. A warm berry crisp rounded out their breakfast.

With Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild Lodging Gift Vouchers you’ll give the gift of relaxation, time away from the everyday, the opportunity to gain a clear head. They are available in $25 increments and can be redeemed at every Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild member across the state. With over 25 members to choose among, that’s a lot of choice.

And the recipient can decide where and when to use them. Maybe they’d like to walk in the sand on the Oregon Coast?  Hike along the rim of Crater Lake? Catch a new museum exhibit in Portland? Sample a pinot noir in the Oregon Wine Country? It’s not just about the lodging. It’s about time. And if you’ve been on the receiving end here’s your chance to pay it forward.

You can purchase Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild Lodging Gift Vouchers online, choose the amount and where you’d like them delivered.  We’ll send them by mail with delivery confirmation.

It’s that simple. Not much of your time, but a generous gift of time for your recipient. What are you waiting for? Support a local, independently owned, small Oregon business. We thank you in advance.

quilt barn trail tualatin valley

The Westside Quilters Guild (WQG) embarked on a multi-year project in late 2013 to create a Quilt Barn Trail in Oregon’s Tualatin Valley. The Quilt Barn Trail in the Tualatin Valley consists of large painted quilt blocks mounted on barns or buildings. The blocks are mounted on barns and non-residential buildings outside the Washington County Urban Growth Boundary, with a small number of blocks inside the city limits of towns that allowed them. In 2019, they reached their goal of installing 60 blocks throughout the county. All blocks are hand-painted, 8 ft or 4 ft-square quilt blocks, made using high quality materials for longevity.

The Quilt Barn Trail highlights the county’s agricultural and historical heritage, promotes area tourism, provides public art in unexpected places, and showcases the art of quilting. Brochures and maps are available in visitor centers, libraries and other locations, as well as online. Funding for our trail was provided by Westside Quilters Guild, grants, sponsors and donations. No public money has been spent on our trail. Oregon residents and visitors can use downloadable maps to navigate the trail.

Luckily, studies show that just planning to take a vacation can help lower stress and make you happier. Set aside time on Jan. 26 to start dreaming of future trips in Oregon.

Willamette Stone

The Willamette Stone was a small stone obelisk originally installed by the Department of Interior in 1885

The Willamette Stone Heritage Site is located in the west hills of Portland, Oregon. The surveys completed from this location promoted settlement of the Northwest and began the transfer of land from government ownership to private ownership.

The first marker, placed in 1851, a simple cedar stake, was replaced with a small stone obelisk in 1885. In 1945 the property was purchased to preserve and protect the origin point of the land survey system for Oregon and Washington. A stainless-steel marker, set into the original obelisk, was rededicated in 1988. The Willamette Meridian is one of 37 principal meridians in the United States. All land surveys and property descriptions in the states of Oregon and Washington are referenced at this point. The Willamette meridian runs north-south, and the Willamette baseline runs east-west through the marker.

The Willamette Valley marks the end of the Oregon Trail and the history of that migration can be discovered at heritage sites, museums, and cemeteries across the region. Known for its premium wines, craft breweries, cideries, meaderies and distilleries the Willamette Valley is also home to unique, one-of-a-kind Bed and Breakfasts awaiting your visit.

Some OR counties are still in ‘freeze’ mode, with travel restrictions in place. These risk reduction measures are critical in limiting the spread of COVID-19, reducing risk in communities more vulnerable to serious illness and death, and helping conserve hospital capacity so that all Oregonians can continue to have access to quality care.
