About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Step into an Oasis of style, comfort and privacy in the heart of this most charming wine country.

Perhaps the most ideal location in the Willamette Valley for couples, families and business groups visiting wine country. Inspired by award winning designer Kim Morris of Morris Design, Inc., Carlton Gates is unlike any accommodation in the area.

Featuring a spacious kitchen with large island and gas fireplace for guests to gather round that opens to the Great Room where good company continues among friends. Have an elegant dinner together in the dining room with built in buffet and then move outdoors to enjoy two patio areas each with their own firepit. Feeling contemplative?....take a stroll around the back courtyard or enjoy a bottle of wine in the corner Adirondack Settee under a Blue Spruce.

If your group wants to enjoy a movie in the theater, it will feel like their own private screening with a 70 inch screen and surround sound. When it's time for bed, you can go your separate ways into two Master Suites, Guest Bedroom and Second Guest Bedroom. Two additional guests are accommodated on a comfy pullout sofa sleeper in the theater. The Two Master Suites and First Guest Bedroom each have their own outside private sitting area with bistro table and chairs.

If you need to handle business before play, Carlton Gates accomodates business groups with the Great Room which features a 55 inch flat screen and full AV capability for Power Point presentations.

About Carlton Gates

For me, the richness of life is expressed through the pleasure of being with family and friends while enjoying fine food and wine.

I hope Carlton Gates is a place where you also find that richness.

Warm regards,

David Gates - Owner

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted you to know the house was amazing and was

better than what we expected. We all had such a good time and bought a lot of great wines. We'll be back there again in the future to try other

winery's. There were too many to go to on a single trip.

Thanks for everything.

Paradise in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

The on-line photos were fabulous, but the reality was even better! We were a party of six, looking to experience the Willamette Wine Country. The kitchen was well equipped and had a large center island and a gas fireplace. There was a large dinning room with seating for at least eight people and a Great Room with two sofas. The Media Room had a large TV with an L-Shaped sofa. There are two Master Suites and two additional bedrooms that shared a bath.

The house had a secluded feeling. While sitting outside around the fire pit, we forgot about the surrounding houses. The landscaping was well tended.

The town of Carlton is small with some interesting shops. There are bigger towns nearby that offer larger stores and a variety of restaurants. There many fine small wineries within a half hour drive. Our problem was there wasn't enough time to visit them all.

Portland was about an hour's drive away. An interesting place to visit. We spent an pleasant afternoon at Pittock Mansion. The views of Portland were outstanding and alone well worth the visit.

Given the opportunity, we would stay at Carlton Gates again and would recommend it to to others.

Modern comfortable casual retreat

  • 5 of 5

The perfect base for our wine tasting trip to Willamette Valley. The home is inviting and comfortable. It met all our needs and more. The areas outside were tranquil and secluded. Ample bedrooms, gourmet kitchen and extra rooms for gathering.

Amazing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Best rental house we have ever stayed at. Everything about this place is beautiful. Great kitchen, great bathrooms; the master bath is incredible - everyone wanted to shower in the master bath and the kids loved the Jacuzzi tub. Outside areas are just as amazing - we spent endless hours around the fire. There is a great outdoor community pool less than a mile away that we found. I would suggest that this information be added to the posting / literature. There is also an indoor community pool a few miles away that we took the kids swimming to. The only very minor issue we had was that the locks on a couple of the bedroom/bathroom doors didn't' work very well.

The house was beautiful! Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a neighborhood that was run down but not a bad area. The house was recently remodeled and lovely!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the input Patrina. The previous owner worked hard with the City over the years to keep those quaint narrow streets in that old part of Carlton from ever being widened and paved over; some say it adds to the charm of the neighborhood. Warm regards, David (Owner)

Gorgeous Spotless!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house it's beautifully remodeled spotless on arrival. Wonderful kitchen fully stocked with all gadgets needed. Bathrooms were great. The only tiny thing it would have been better to know is that the property is not fully fenced and we did have a stray dog run into the yard....luckily no big incident but the neighbors just let them loose. So just a bit of caution.

There are tons of trees though so even without the full fence it's very private feeling with fencing on the sides of the house. Gorgeous huge backyard.

Huge fun surprise to see 6ish beach cruisers! And the location to Carlton is close enough to walk...or bike! Helmets were also available.
