Make your visit to wine country a memorable one with a stay at the Historic Dayton Wine House. You’ll feel the grandness of this house with the 11 foot ceilings, oversized rooms with period details and plenty of character, updated heating, cooling and appliances, and over 3400 finished square feet, comfortably sleeping 10 people in 5 bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms. A bottle of wine and tasting room coupons await for you to start the fun right away.
The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing a gourmet meal, with room for several chefs to cook at once. The 10 foot farmhouse table is a great gathering place in the large dining room and comfortably seats 12 people. There is a propane Weber grill to cook out and Adirondack chairs for a picnic in the yard.
Treat yourself for a great night’s sleep with comfortable beds, pillows, and white linens, and take a relaxing soak in the clawfoot tub.
After a day of exploring and wine tasting, settle in to watch a movie from our library on the theater sized 135” HD TV with Paradigm speakers, or relax in one of the leather club chairs in the adjacent living room and play music through the bluetooth speakers.
Oregon is a world-class wine destination and recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first planting of its pinot noir grapes. The house is perfectly positioned in the middle of the Willamette Valley for easy access to taste at one of its 400+ wineries in any direction from the house. Multi-million dollar tasting rooms with jaw-dropping views are only minutes away. We are glad to share our favorite wineries or help with suggestions for your trip, and we provide winery maps to all of our guests.
For dining, walk a few blocks to The Joel Palmer house, one of the best fine dining restaurants in the Willamette Valley whose menu centers around mushrooms and truffles the owners forage. Or for an upscale tavern vibe, walk across the square to The Barlow Room, a great place to eat and drink from the same owners. For your breakfast, just walk across the street to The Blockhouse Cafe in an immaculately restored 1886 church.
For your sweet fix, Archie’s Ice Cream Shop is always busy and frequently has vintage cars on display. Seufert winery and tasting room is also located near the main town square.
Many more restaurants are less than 10 minutes' drive from the house in McMinnville, Newberg and Dundee. Favorites include Red Hills Market, Nick’s Italian Cafe, Dundee Bistro, Storr’s BBQ, Thistle Restaurant and Bar, The Painted Lady, and The Blue Goat.
The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and water-park is a not to miss museum only a few miles from the house, also home to the Spruce Goose airplane and an IMAX theater. Portland and the Oregon coast are both only about an hour away.
