I drove a scenic 45 minutes from Portland until I reached the jewel of Oregon’s famed wine country- Willamette Valley. Anyone that knows about wine will tell you this region is the area for a perfect Pinot Noir due to it rolling hills, fertile soil rich with history, and year-long temperate climate. With over 200 wineries in this area and influx of tourists wanting a taste of the laid-back winery vibe- this area is quickly becoming the next Napa Valley.
Nestled among perfectly manicured vineyards and hazelnut tree lined roads is where you will find The Allison Inn & Spa. Thoughtfully placed on 35 hillside acres, this luxury resort welcomes you as you drive through 7 scenic acres of estate vineyards, blooming gardens, and an impressive chef’s garden until you reach the grand entrance.
This hotel is still the only 5-star hotel in Willamette, earning every bit of those 5 stars with its luxurious rooms, impeccable service, and fine dining.
The Allison Inn & Spa boasts 77 luxury guestrooms and 8 suites on 4 levels- all overlooking the picturesque estate vineyards. Each room has a gas fireplace, terrace or balcony, plush bed, and an incredible spa-like bathroom to make you feel at home after a long day of wine tasting.
Also located in the Allison is an ultra-luxurious spa, fitness studio, grand indoor swimming pool with unmatched views, a large whirlpool, and a beautiful pool terrace overlooking the manicured garden.
