Oregon Wine Country

The perfect respite in Oregon Wine Country. Chad took the time to absorb the serenity of The Hill. We are blessed with guests that find the peace on this good earth.

For someone who’s had a rough, but also blessed last couple of years: This trip and stay here has been something unique and memorable that I will never forget.  Coming back from Iraq as a combat veteran and sniper has been a rough transition into “normal” standards of life.  Being so wound up, on edge, and irritable all the time weighs on a young man’s soul.  At least it did for mine.  The search and quest for peace and quiet became a major focus for me the last two years.  Thank God I’ve received amazing help from communities that love their veterans or else I don’t think it would have been possible to enjoy this amazing place of peace, quiet and relaxation.

Just taking a walk through Wayne’s backyard in the vineyard has been so peaceful and needed for my soul.  Three consecutive combat tours and over two and a half years on the ground in Iraq drove me into survival overload where my instincts have taken over even when I didn’t want them too.

This weekend I found something special here that I will never forget.  I wish I could stay in this quiet, beautiful and serene place longer but life awaits me.

I’ll be back soon.

Thank you

Oregon Wine Country Wedding

September 2nd, 2010 by Nicolette Bailey

We had another wonderful wine country wedding on The Hill. Here is what the bride had to say.

As far as our experience it was phenomenal, really nothing that I could even try and pinpoint that I wasn’t happy about. Your Inn Keeper Becky was so great. She would check in on us hourly to make sure we all had what we needed, and the breakfasts were wonderful. I also appreciated how accommodating you were with time lines and when people could arrive, it made the whole day really stress free and easy.

I was really impressed with how great you were with keeping tabs on the wedding and turning around questions. There was never a time when I felt I had to remind you about something we had discussed. We always seemed to be on the same page, which again made things so much easier as I knew that I didn’t have to worry about anything venue related.
