About Karen and Steve Lutz
We have been running our small boutique winery for almost 20 years. We met in CA in the mid 90's and fell in love over pizza. Hospitality is our business and we are dedicated to making your stay special and memorable.
Karen and Steve Lutz purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Karen and Steve Lutz chose Yamhill
We consider this property our little piece of heaven. It was inspired by the old barns you see in France and the idea was always to make it feel as though you were in Provence or Italy when you come to visit. It's as magical in the Winter when you can cocoon inside listening to the wind whipping around you or experiencing the pristine silence of a rare snowfall as it is in the Spring, Summer and Fall when, after witnessing a stunning sunset over the coastal range, you can sit out on the patio until long after dark listening to the resident wild life call out around you. We are surrounded by world class wineries and restaurants for you to enjoy or simply stop by the local store on your way home to grab some groceries and stay 'Chez Vous' to soak up the "pinch me" views and atmosphere. We have spent the last few months remodeling and redecorating so we can better share our little bit of Europe with guests on the weekends.
What makes this Apartment unique
Great views, great wine and the feeling that you are truly a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. If you want to stay connected you still can with fast WiFi and cable TV with a DVR for you sports fanatics who don't want to miss that game or just to connect to your streaming accounts on the TV and binge away! There is a really good coffee/espresso maker so you can enjoy that 'cuppa joe' or cappuccino without having to get out of your pj's. The new bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on

Five Star in every way
My wife and I planned a quick getaway and this place was perfect. The wonderful apartment is right above the tasting room on a working winery/vineyard. Location was perfect and Steve and Karen couldn’t have been more helpful with recommendations and the welcome bottle of their delightful Pinot. We definitely will stay here again!
Michael and his wife were great guests. They left the place in great shape and were very easy to communicate with.
Fantastic October stay at Lenne!
We booked this property for a long weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary. We did plenty of research online and when we came across Lenne, the pictures and privacy won us over. Let me tell you...we were blown away! First of all...if you can go in October, after the harvest but before the leaves blow off the vines, when the colors are at their most vibrant, GO! Every vista we experienced was more breathtaking than the last! We went 10/24-27 and were a week or so past peak colors. A little earlier and we might have seen a few more leaves on the trees, if that helps in planning a trip for the fall. Karen was a lovely host and was quick to reply with our entry details including the gate and lock box codes. The property is gated, so it is very secure and private. The apartment has every thing you would need for comfortable stay. The water pressure in the shower is perfect and the mattress and bed linens were so cozy. The kitchen is stocked with tools and utensils, tupperware, pots and pans, dishes and plenty of wine glasses. There is a dishwasher and a microwave that is part of the stove top- no oven. There was some pantry items in the cupboard and freezer which I'm assuming have been left by previous guests. We ended up leaving an unopened box of crackers and a bag of Pepperidge Farm cookies for the collection. If your a dog person, they had doggie bowls and dog food there as well. We felt right at home! We got to meet Steve down in the tasting room and enjoyed our complimentary tastings so much that we became members of their wine club! There is so much to see in the Willamette Valley and every turn had another fantastic view to enjoy. We could've easily stayed a full week to take in more! We book a private wine tour through Jeff Petersen at Oregon Select Wine Tours. He did a fantastic job and knows his stuff! We also booked an 8 course wine pairing dinner at The Painted Lady in Newberg to celebrate our Anniversay, which was so delicious! I can't say enough about the people, the scenic views, the food and wonderful wines of this region. We hope to be back soon!
Amazing Place to Stay in Willamette Valley
I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this property is! The location is ideal in the middle of Willamette Valley, with neighboring towns of Carlton, Newburg, and McKinville just a short drive away. Set on top of the tasting room of Lenne Vineyards, it's like having your own winery. When the gates shut at 5, it's the whole place to yourself! The scenery is breathtaking. Karen has thought of everything to make this the perfect stay .From the wonderful bed and living spaces to the modern bathroom and kitchen, it is truly a little piece of heaven. The wine at the vineyard is amazing as well; the staff couldn't have been nicer... I would go back to this spot every time. We felt like we were pinching ourselves every time we looked around....
5 stars across the board! The apartment seems brand new and is beautifully decorated with all the amenities you'd want/need (down to a milk frother). The views seriously can't be beat. Surrounded by breathtaking vineyards in all directions. The staff in the tasting room are extremely friendly and helpful. We honestly could have spent the entire day talking to them. To top it off, their wines were some of our favorites among the many wineries we tasted at over the three days we had there. I'm actually tempted to not submit a review for fear of it not being available the next time we visit but I feel I owe it to them for such a great trip. Thanks again!
Stunning views, world class Pinot
Karen and Steve were great to work with, the apartment and deck were ideal for my wife and me, and the location ... in the vineyard!! Lots of quiet, stunning views, and wonderfully complex wines. Hats off to the Tasting Room hospitality team for fun and informative tastings.
3 Days in My Own Private Heaven
What an experience! Steve and Karen were impeccable hosts of their lovely vineyard flat. They truly thought of everything to make it a comfortable and luxurious experience. Being able to pop right downstairs to taste some excellent wines was such fun, made even better because everyone was so hospitable to my dogs. (Dog people, for sure!) It was particularly special after hours, when it was just us and the vineyard. Cooking with those amazing views, sitting out on the patio with a glass of wine, walking the dogs through the vines at sunset and sunrise...it was a truly special experience I will never forget. Thank you Karen and Steve for all the special touches and the overall amazing experience!
