January 2017 and ECLIPSE news

Another calendar yer is here.  Owner at MVW has returned from a visit to the UK (home of the original bed and breakfast concept) where a number of different places were ehecked out.  The places visited were both in London and in Cornwall vacation country.  It was a fine time, but now it is time to re-engage with bed and breakfasts here in Oregon.



August 18, 19, 20, 21 are the dates surrounding the eclipse scheduled for August 21.  Viewable from Mcminnville, the best path for viewing is actually at Independence, OR.  However, Mcminnville has more varied activities for visitors and more places to stay.

However, there are no more rooms at MVW for those dates.  I have left a message on the house/reservation phone telling callers that we are full.  But, if you are searching now and see this, you can save yourself a disapointing call.

Mid-July update

Amazingly, we find ourselves at the mid-July point.  It has been a very busy season thus far at Martha's Vineyard West.  Many new and returning guests have enjoyed the wonders of our wine, food and atmosphere in Mcminnville.  We wil welcome more for the International Pinot Noir Celebration, July 28-31.

It is the height of berry season and our continental breakfast always includes local fruits.  Of particular delight this week has been the blueberries and marion berries.  Next fruit arrival will be the Hermiston melons.  Thinking of a breakfast sorbet.

There are vacancies in August at the bed and breakfast.  Send a note on the contact form, or call and leave a message to which I will respond as quickly as possible.

In August, guests may also visit at Vista Hills Vineyard and sample great wines in the Treehouse tasting room as part of their stay.



Spring to Summer 2016

Martha's Vineyard West enters the new season with pleasure.  We dontinue to enjoy our guests and their pleasure in the area.  This spring we are experiencing warm weather earlier than usual and that means that the garden and decks are looking good!  We welcome guests for visits to the epicenter of wine country.  Hospitable setting, good beds, nice expended continental breakfast, and an easy walk to Linfield College and to Mcminnville's downtown.

     We celebrated graduation with some George Fox parents and students last weekend.  So nice to meet with those entering the 'fully adult' stage of life.  And, so exult with parents who see that the goal line can be reached.

Come visit us!
