This isn’t a guide to the cheapest way to get away for the weekend.  It is a guide to great food and a nice place to stay.

Lodging: Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn. Not too far from McMinville, Oregon, but out far enough to be on a hill overlooking the winery and valley and only hear the sounds of nature at night. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful.

Dinner: The Painted Lady.  Excellent multi-course meal with a focus on local food. The Painted Lady is in Newberg, Oregon, about 30 minutes from the Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn.

Breakfast: Crescent Cafe.  Super friendly, great food, and large portions. You won’t leave hungry.
