This Month's Testimonial: "Altogether Breathtaking"

Featuring: The Black Walnut Inn & Vineyards in Dundee, OR

“The owners have poured love, as well as money, into this amazing Italianate chateau in the Dundee hills. We stayed in the Master - a large corner suite with breath-taking views of the surrounding area including Mount Hood in the distance. The opportunity to sit on the patio, with a bottle of wine and a few snacks, watching the sun go down was a lifelong memory.
The sumptuous breakfasts, prepared by the owner or a local restaurant chef, were interesting, if large on portions for us Brits. Sunday brunch is the best option where you can control your own portions in a self service arrangement.The breakfast 'amuse bouche' of a red berry crumble and cream one day was delicious in its own right but more suited to a dessert than the fore runner of a savoury omelette.
The owners try incredibly hard to help with ideas of where to go and what to see, organising private vineyard viewings if asked; they deserve every success.” - The Stophers
