The Allison Inn: A necessary experience

T and I stayed at the Allison Inn in Newberg not only for the night of our wedding, but more recently for our one-year anniversary. In all of our travels around the world so far, no other hotel has treated us as well, given us more for our money, and been the standard for relaxation and refreshment like The Allison Inn has. And it's only twenty minutes away from us!
While we both willingly and knowingly recognize that The Allison is quite expensive, in our mind it's really one of those things that you a) must save up for, and b) take advantage of everything they offer when you stay there. The Allison treats their guests soooooooo well-- from the sincerely kind and helpful front desk staff, to the warm and generous servers and spa attendants. Everyone seems to go out of their way to make you feel valued and appreciated at The Allison. 
Their rooms are unlike any room we've stayed in during our travels so far. Each room (even the most basic) has luxuriously soft sheets, a large soaking tub, a rain-like spa shower, a deck with chairs, a window seat (complete with a chenille blanket) for reading (with a window that opens and brings in fresh NW air), a fireplace and a dining table + easy chair to relax in. There are iPod docks and large flat screen tvs, and they also include complimentary NW soaps (lemongrass + lavender) and dead sea salts for use in the bath and shower. Finally, they offer a complimentary basket of snacks made in the Northwest: Tim's potato chips & maui luau chips, moonstruck chocolates, chocolate covered hazelnuts, blueberry shortbread cookies, granola bars and more. Even fresh bottled water in their signature Allison Inn jars are is complimentary. The go absolutely above and beyond with their services. 
We love the accessibility and offerings of the property, including the plentiful adirondak chairs for reading, the freshly planted flowers, the vineyard trails to walk on, the sun deck with views of the Willamette Valley, the soft chaise lounges & pool / spa relaxation area, and the abundant list of Oregon pinots to complete any Jory dining experience. Even their freshly squeezed orange juice is the best we've ever had!








I am writing this post because a) I appreciate everything The Allison stands for as a hotel experience, and b) to encourage you to save your pennies this year and treat yourself to a visit. You will not regret it! Seriously, we have an "Allison Inn Anniversary" jar at our house that we diligently put our loose change in for the year in order to be able to celebrate our anniversary there next year, and for the years to come. :)
