      Hi Melissa- We did too! You ought to try glamping since it’s so much easier (and comfortable) than traditional camping.

    I have been to The Allison and while NOBODY would call that glamping I loved it! The building itself is a work of sustainable art and the lovely glass water bottles a super nice touch. My personal recommendation while exploring the Willamette Valley and it’s wonderful vinyards and restaurants is a 1/2 day ride with the good folks at Sip Saddle & Ride. Now that’s glamping!

      Greer- what a fun adventure you had in the valley. Thanks for sharing and we might have to check out the riding tours with Sip Saddle & Ride.

    This glamping spot is adorable! It’s not far from where I live so the next time we have friends looking to want to camp nearby, I’ll direct them here. We’re members at Ponzi and love that this is so close to it! Thanks for the tip!

      What a great idea Marlynn! It would make a great “guest bedroom” during the summer months.
