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.

What makes this House unique

The wine country mural in the hot tub patio draws your stress out and away with every warm bubbly moment. Family antiques lend a sense of belonging and connection to your stay. Enjoy the flames in the fireplace while placing your cares aside for a time. You need only ask and we will provide full concierge service to recommend dining and sightseeing options as well as make those reservations for you. We truly want you to feel at home here.

                                                                        This is a beautiful home with everything you could imagine. We were surprised to find a lint roller in the laundry room and paper in the printer connected to the guest use computer.

                                                                        We were given Netflix access and were greeted with a fire in the wood burning fireplace. George Fox U is right across the street and this property provided easy access. We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay.

                                                                        Super cute! Comfortable and close to restaurants, wineries and downtown. Leah is very friendly!

Food, coffee, and wine a few short blocks away. Best bnb in town. All the five stars given to this property across many reviews, for this type of travel and lodging style, is hard earned and concordant with our experience. When we return, we'll stay here again!

                                                                        Thank you Leigh!

                                                                        Gary B.

                                                                        This lovely home has a very friendly owner who is most helpful. The house itself is a restored Victorian and is very nice. There are three bedrooms up stairs, two are somewhat small and one is larger. The house is filled with antiques and local and personal memorabilia. The house is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this VRBO.
