Been glued to your devices? Is your house more office than home? Do you need a break from the kids, the dogs, and the news? Oregon Wine Country has your cure! Here’s our top 5 reasons to plan your 2022 unplugged vacation in Willamette Valley Wine Country so you can experience the refreshing getaway you deserve this summer.
1. De-stress by Staying Inn: Quiet, Peaceful B&B Accommodation
When you are planning your 2022 unplugged vacation, Chehalem Ridge B&B understands that the health and safety of our guests, our small staff and our community is more important than ever. As an award-winning bed and breakfast, we strive every day to deliver top notch hospitality and concierge service, exceed health and safety standards and ensure your stay is the epitome of relaxing comfort. While you can plug in with our free Wi-Fi to check on business or stream the next episode, you can choose not to as well.
Use your 2022 unplugged vacation to get back outside and into wellness. Outdoor adventurers love to use our B&B as a hub for exploring the nearby wine country state parks, scenic bikeways, and backroads. Visiting the rugged Oregon Coast to the west or Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge to the east are easily explored with daytrips from Chehalem Ridge B&B. Your innkeepers, Kristin & Liz, know all about each of these areas and can help you plan your adventures.
3. Sit Back and Enjoy the View
If you’re tired of looking at the walls of your house, or even your own backyard, you need a change of scenery. Whether or not wine tasting is your thing, the idyllic beauty that wineries and vineyards are known for are in vast supply here in Willamette Valley wine country. With over 600 wineries – 100 of them within 20 minutes of Chehalem Ridge B&B – we will happily tell you which have the best setting, the tastiest wine, and the most pampering experience. The B&B’s Winery Itinerary Service will set you up with a day of wine tasting reservations so you don’t have to do the research and the footwork of reserving. You just have to show up, relax, and enjoy.
4. Fine Dining Experiences Inn-side or Outside
Out here in Willamette Valley wine country, restaurant chefs understand pairing local food with amazing wine. You have your choice of so many fine dining experiences, from pre-fixe pairing dinners, to gourmet take-out, and farm to table menus at some of Oregon’s best restaurants. On your 2022 unplugged vacation, disconnect to reconnect with your travelling companion by eating a beautifully crafted meal that you didn’t have to prepare yourself.
5. Leave the Crowds Behind by Shopping Small
The beauty of small town, Main Street shopping is that you can avoid the closed-in feeling of busy malls, and support small, local businesses at the same time. Our very own Downtown Newberg has loads of boutiques, antique stores and tasting rooms to explore, and is just 10 minutes down the hill from our B&B. Make a whole day of exploring downtown while unplugged.
For every one reason we give you to come to wine country for your 2022 unplugged vacation, you can probably think of ten more. So whether it’s to digitally detox, disconnect to reconnect with yourself or your partner or to just get off the grid for a while, a visit to Chehalem Ridge B&B will give you the space to power down, refresh and restart. Contact us today to book your unplugged vacation and take that first step to recharging your life.
