This was our first B&B experience and one that has set the bar for future experiences. Karen was a fantastic inn keeper. The house was beautiful and had everything we could ever want or need during our stay. The location was perfect for doing some local wine tasting, everything was very walk-able. The breakfast was outstanding. We can't wait to... More

The Carlton Inn is a charming place to stay in a cute little town known for wine tasting. The décor is lovely, the owner very pleasant, the room comfortable and clean, and the food delicious and healthy. After a walk in the rain, it was great to sit by the fire in the living room.

It had been years since my husband and I had stayed in a bed and breakfast. The Carlton Inn proved to be a great choice to introduce back into that experience. The decor is not the musty cloying feel you get from so many b&b'. It's more a funky cottage feel. We stayed in the Dundee room which had its... More

My wife and I stayed at The Carlton Inn on our recent trip to the Willamette Valley from the East Coast. It was our first trip to the area and were looking for a place in the middle of it all.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Prior to arriving I let Karen know that I was gluten free. She had made special cookies for me when we arrived.

My husband and I stayed three nights with Karen, the Inn owner and cook. The Inn location allowed foot access to the entire town and was close enough to the countryside to encourage walking there, as well. We found good restaurants, Cuvee and the Horseradish, with live music, and Honest Chocolates along with numerous wine-tasting venues. Our room, the Eola... More

What is disappointing to any innkeeper is a guest that doesn’t appreciate all that we do to "help" make their stay a wonderful experience, and makes wrong assumptions rather than asking for clarification. This guest requested information prior to their visit, which was happily provided. His wife had dietary restrictions that included no eggs or sugar; and rather just serving... More

Where you arrive as a guest... Depart as a friend. Built in 1915, The Carlton Inn B&B is located within the charming community of Carlton, known as Oregon's most walkable wine district, "The Wine Capital of Oregon." A short walk and you will discover nearly two dozen tasting rooms and wineries as well as unique shops and wonderful restaurants. Within our B&B find four comfortable guestrooms, each with a private bathroom, equipped with blow dryer, fluffy towels, bath and body products; and two king rooms, and two queen-sized beds, each encased in soft microfiber sheets, and a warm, fluffy comforter; a living room with fireplace and TV area, and a shaded back porch overlooking the garden. You will dine on a multi-course breakfast prepared from scratch, using local products and produce when possible, some coming from the Inn's own garden and chickens. The Inn is considered a wine country destination, for this reason, no children under 12 years of age. ... more   less
