Monday Musings: An amazing Oregon wine country getaway

The Allison Inn & Spa
 I hope you enjoy my photo memoir from our first vacation without Ms. P this past weekend. It was everything I had hoped for. Their spa was luxurious and had an incredible relaxation room that looked out onto the vast grounds/vineyard. We ventured out to Tina's in Dundee (about 10 mins. from The Allison) and had a ridiculously fabulous meal of lamb with brussel sprouts, pureed cauliflower and leek soup and bacon wrapped scallops that were cooked perfectly. My mouth waters just thinking about it now. We meandered around the grounds at The Allison, relaxed on our private terrace and then most incredibly I slept in until 8:00! Thank you to the G Parents! What a lovely and decadent getaway...

p.s. Isn't that staircase incredible? The architects of this LEED certified Inn have created the perfect  "bring the outside in" feel to the entire place. The stairwell is so light filled and you can see for miles at all levels of the building.
