Oh my gosh, I’m so excited to finally share some more photos from my recent trip to Oregon with you! We had a memory card malfunction that was almost catastrophic, but things have been sorted out and I promise it was worth the wait.
For this trip, Holly and I really wanted to explore Oregon outside of Portland. We headed about 1.5 hours south of Portland to the Willamette Valley – also known as Oregon’s wine country. Our first stop was the lovely town of Corvallis, where we stayed on the amazing Donovan Place – on a Christmas tree farm!
It’s basically as magical as it sounds. We stayed directly on the farm surrounded by 13 acres of Christmas trees! The property is owned by two of the loveliest people you will ever meet, Dale and Peggy. There are two rental options – the lower level of the main house or a four bedroom farmhouse.
The Donovan’s also have the capability to host small weddings on the small Asian-inspired patio that you see in these photos.
We woke up to deer in our front yard in the morning.
It was fantastic to be able to stay at a place with a full kitchen and such a nice living space. I already have plans to come back with Pat and stay for longer! Some of the best mountain biking trails in the country are not too far away and I know he would go crazy for the chance to try them out.
