So, we adventured into the heart of Oregon wine country for two afternoons, staying the night in McMinnville at Hotel Oregon. The hotel is owned by two brothers who deck out old buildings around Oregon with historical and artistic décor from the area, respectively.

In the hallways of Hotel Oregon, there were historic photographs and original artwork, chronicling the hotel’s first ninety years, along with hand-painted lyrics and wine descriptions.

We enjoyed breakfast at the funky Wild Wood Café in town. Big cups of coffee and omelettes served us well before heading out to the vineyards for wine tasting.

Believe it or not, the women’s toilettes were marked with Barbie.
