“Perfect Getaway, Centrally Located to Wine Country”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

For the third year in a row we enjoyed a long weekend at the Brookside Inn. The food is fabulous, the rooms are wonderful, clean and comfy. We stay here because it is centrally located to so many fabulous wineries and views; but in a very quiet and restful spot. We were in crowds all day and then came back to retreat in front of a fire. This visit they hosted a special wine dinner - fabulous food, great wine and all in the warm and cozy great room. We actually live only about forty minutes away - but for us the stay at Brookside Inn is a must; and is now a Thanksgiving Tradition. Innkeeper Susan is knowledgeable about the area and makes wonderful suggestions for wineries to visit and places to dine. In previous visits we've enjoyed walking around the property - but so far the weather has not been conducive to the firepit! Maybe next visit...

I look forward to your arrival next Thanksgiving. Maybe a private dinner, so you can enjoy the ambiance and food and wine pairings with friends.

Thank you both for returning to Brookside Inn for Thanksgiving weekend every year.

We've been traveling to the Pacific Northwest and particularly Oregon for the last 20 years. Three years ago, we discovered the Brookside Inn and we've never stayed anywhere else since then.

Everything about that place is magical. The rooms are lovely and clean and the beds are more comfortable than the one we have at home. The food is amazing. The "feel" of the place is as comfortable as any home I've ever been in and the grounds are lovely. From welcoming us when we arrive to breakfast the next morning, the host is warm and helpful and we've never wanted for anything while we're there.

Susan is more than just an innkeeper, we consider her to be a friend. Thanks to the Bandstras, we were able to meet with winemakers and find fantastic restaurants. In fact, after having stayed at the Brookside just once, we made the decision to move to the Willamette Valley area after we retire. I can't think of a more wonderful place to live.

I recommend the Brookside Inn to anyone I know who's going to that part of the country.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the place. There is, however, only one with a king-sized bed, the rest...

Thank you my friend. I so much enjoy when you come for a visit. Good wine, lots of laughter. Hope to see you again soon. I am "researching" for the next Wine Club shipment already.

Lovely looking from inside and out, BUT the very wet dog smell was too much. As someone in the hospitality industry you must be aware of atmosphere having large dogs will create. What would you do if a guest showed up with allergies? We love dogs but having our room in the main house the very strong odor of wet dog was present even on the second floor. I could see how much you love your dogs, BUT please do something about the smell. And by the way should dogs be in your kitchen?

We recently hired a consultant to evaluate the rooms and common areas at Brookside Inn as a result of the issues mentioned on Trip Advisor. It is true, the longer you are exposed to something, the less you are aware of the impact on others.

As a result of the evaluation, flooring in the great room is being replaced, walls are being resurfaced, and other policies are being set to avoid any further issues regarding our Newfoundlands.

We all love our pets, but that is no excuse to expose others to that love.

This inn is in a beautiful setting away from urban living. The grounds are peaceful, the rooms comfortable (impressed by the Aveda products ... nice little touch), and the food nutritious and well-prepared. There is a wonderful ambiance to the place that is both relaxing and energizing at the same time. We spent our wedding night here and it was the perfect retreat after a beautiful day full of our loved ones. It is a little hard to find at night ... I would suggest getting there during daylight, or perhaps a light can be placed under the beautiful metal signs at the end of the drive to help night arrivals. Breakfast tends to be at tables grouped with other guests, typical of inns, but our request to eat privately was gladly accommodated. There are a few options for breakfast seating so some flexibility. Susan, the innkeeper, was wonderful, as was the rest of the staff.

Room Tip: We spent only a night and purposefully chose the large suite in the building separate from the lodge...

Susan is a great and personable host. We had some ideas for restaurants which she either confirmed or steered us elsewhere and we were happy with where we went based on her recommendations. The room was a bit small, but very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable which is a big deal to us. Who stays in their room on such a beautiful property and with so much to do? We went wine tasting and to the coast. Susan lent us her atlas which was really valuable even with gps. We booked last minute and 'blindly' off the internet. The location is very central to the surrounding area. Breakfast was just right--enough to fill you up but not overstuff you and yummy. I was very happy with the choice and would go back again.
