This was a great B&B to stay in while visiting the Oregon wine country. The owner, Nicci, was a great hostess, and took us on a wine tour to 3 great wineries, then came the next morning to make us a gourmet breakfast! Made our trip so memorable!

The is a wonderful place to stay & relax and enjoy life. It is a big place with two stories, we stayed in the Strawberry room. It had a great view, was really quiet, it had a great bed and extra room to relax. It was a really comfortable place to stay. I think the best part is its location,... More

If you're looking for a luxury B&B, keep looking. We stayed in the Trilium Suite and were not impressed with the room at all. The bed was so squeeky that just rolling over was enough to awaken you. Thin walls, we could hear the guy in the next suite going to the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, it's incredibly tiny.... More

My husband and I purchased a Groupon to stay two nights at the Kelty. We love staying at B&Bs so we were excited to check it out. The Kelty is very mediocre for a B&B. The caretaker, although friendly and nice, reeked of cigarettes (he's also the person cooking your food). The breakfasts had a very nice presentation but were... More

The heritage house has great bones. It is set back from the road offering guests privacy and quiet from the street noise. Our room on the second floor was comfortable, the breakfast was hearty and the host amiable. The concern I have is with the overall condition of the home which is tired and in desperate need of some TLC.... More

We used a Groupon for our 2 night stay, including limo wine tasting, which was good value for the money we paid but would not have been if we had paid the full price of this B&B. We stayed in the Klammath Suite, which has a private entrance & a large, double sinked bathroom & a separate seating area. The... More

The Kelty is a beautiful historic house,and is very comfortable. We stayed in the Trillium Room at the front of the house. It was quiet and roomy, though the bathroom is small.

“Strawberry room is definitely built more towards a larger family, two rooms in one with a Murphy bed. Klamath Suite would definitely be my first choice. It's separated from the house and it's very quiet and cozy.”

“There's no elevator, so if you have problems with stairs, book the room on the first floor. I felt the room above the carriage house, although larger in size than the other rooms, was a bit dark. There were two small skylights to help get some natural light in, but would preferred the larger windows in the other rooms. I also thought the hardwood floors in the rooms were charming (the two suites are carpeted). The Strawberry Suite's bathroom is outside the room in case that bothers you.”
