About Leigh Wellikoff
I have always loved the historic buildings and close knit neighborhoods in this northern part of Newberg. Many years ago, I was delighted to jump at the opportunity when I saw a realtor installing a 'for sale' sign on the property that would become U House. I've restored four houses in this part of town, nurturing them from various states of disrepair into beautiful homes. My love of antiques shows throughout the house, as many of the furnishings are family heirlooms. In my thirty years of living in the Willamette Valley, I continue to be amazed at the astonishing variety available here. Downtown Newberg is full of character with an intimate, easy-going atmosphere. The mid-valley area is so spectacular in its geography, recreational choices, abundant wildlife, agricultural diversity and artistic community, yet also close to town and city environments. I enjoy being able to go from valley to mountain to desert in a few hours to the east, or west through the Coast Range to some of the most stunning coastline to be found anywhere. Allow us to introduce you to this unique part of the world, or assist you in deepening your own appreciation of what our area has to offer. Welcome to the U House...your home away from home while visiting Yamhill County.
Leigh Wellikoff purchased this House in 1995
Why Leigh Wellikoff chose Newberg
This turn of the century home caught my eye years before it became available, and I was thrilled to be able to turn the house into a comfortable haven for travellers to enjoy. This is a beautiful historic area with a friendly neighborhood network, quiet yet close to a wide array of dining and activities in premiere wine country.

Willamette Valey getaway
The house is exactly as advertised and Leigh is a great hostess. The location is perfect for a Willamette Valley wine country visit.
Home with a lot of history
Great location for our event. The home is just that, a home. Did not feel like we were staying in some newly remodeled rental. This is a home with a lot of history. It had all the modern amenities you could want, including an outdoor covered family sitting area. with the character and charm of its' original built roots.
Great property for a relaxing wine country visit
Very nice place to stay for couples
Charming old home
We spent two nights here as our home base for wine tasting and exploring. The house was very cozy, clean, and close to the central shopping and restaurants
Leigh, the owner, was helpful in her welcome tour of the house
If you need a different activity,, I recommend the Harvey Creek Trail to the Dundee Pioneer Cemetery.
Charming, peaceful home!
We loved this place. It was impeccably kept - just beautiful. And in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood that made for a wonderfully relaxing refuge after a day of being out and about.
The owner, Ms. Leigh was very friendly, courteous and helpful.
