Youngberg Hill Inn, McMinnville
Situated on the slopes of a 22-year-old organic vineyard, Youngberg Hill’s heart-stirring views take in the Willamette Valley, the Coast Range and Mounts Hood and Jefferson. Fall asleep to the sound of wind rustling across the vineyards and wake up to a two-course gourmet breakfast. Oh and did we mention there are only four rooms? It’s the kind of wine country escape you’ve always dreamed about, but perhaps never found. Until now.
