The quaint Painted Lady cottage (to the left of the restaurant above) sits at the intersection of Second and College streets, a block from downtown’s collection of shops (don’t miss Honest Chocolates’ handmade delights), restaurants, and tasting rooms (for whites, try Chehalem Wines, just east of the cottage).

The cottage’s two well appointed bedrooms—both with queen beds—are set at opposite corners of the house, which means mom and dad can savor a little serenity when the kids are in their room. Even better, the house, which sleeps five if you include the couch, boasts two bathrooms. Only one has a shower, but it’s big enough for a dinner party (really).

Owners Routt and Bagley have left no detail forgotten, from an espresso machine to fresh eggs, fruit from nearby Viridian Farms, and milk in the fridge. Even the cute backyard garden’s fire pit comes complete with kindling stacked in a match-ready teepee for you.

Dinner next door is a must. So sayeth AAA (the Painted Lady earned Oregon’s only four-diamond rating in 2011 and 2012), Wine Spectator (the magazine has named the Painted Lady one of its Best Restaurants for Wine for six years), and, of course, Tripster. Inspired by European restaurants, Routt and Bagley offer a five-course, prix fixe menu ($65). And what a treat it is. Indulge in everything from venison carpaccio to dry-aged (for 28 days!) New York steak from Carlton Farms, so tender you can cut it with a fork. Finish it off with a perfectly fluffed souffle drizzled (or doused if you so choose) with Grand Marnier creme anglaise. As for the wine, let the experts handle it; the Painted Lady offers four pairings for $45.
