Luxury Resort Opens in Oregon's Willamette Valley

     At long last, Willamette Valley wine country has become Willamette Valley Wine Country.

     Those capital letters were earned with the opening of The Allison Inn & Spa in the town of Newberg, Oregon.

     Until last September, when The Allison Inn opened its doors, the Willamette Valley – Oregon’s vast and premium winegrape-growing region – lacked only one amenity that California’s top vineyard areas boasted: a destination, luxury resort.

     In the Napa Valley, wine lovers have long been able to luxuriate at Auberge du Soleil or The Meadowood Resort. In Sonoma, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa is the place to stay for well-heeled travelers.

     And now, the 85-room Allison Inn, developed by Newberg resident Joan Austin, offers a more northerly option.

     Its spacious, earth-toned guest rooms feature fireplaces, balconies, local artwork and custom furniture. The spa offers a variety of stress-melting treatments, and the 84-seat restaurant has a wine list that’s jam-packed with Willamette Valley bottlings.

     In the future, The Allison Inn also will offer its own wines, produced by David Adelsheim of nearby Adelsheim Vineyard.

     The Allison Inn & Spa is located at 2525 Allison Lane in Newberg. Reservations may be made by calling 877-294-2525.
