I booked a room at the Brookside Inn for the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon. As soon as the innkeepers found out that I was running the half marathon, they offered to make a "to-go" runner's breakfast for me. That was a very nice touch.
The room had everything I needed and opened onto the wrap-around porch and extensive grounds. The grounds include a large pond surrounded by trails with nut trees, berry vines and herb patches. There are several small waterfalls, a lovely gazebo, a rabbit hutch, a large garden, a playground, and a firepit. This is obviously an excellent venue for a country wedding.
The innkeepers are so welcoming! My brother and sister-in-law with their two teenagers came to visit me on both days of my stay. The innkeepers allowed me to give the key to my room to my brother and nephew so that they had a nice place to stay while my sister-in-law, niece and I ran the half marathon together. The race course goes right past the inn's driveway on Abbey Road, making this arrangement ideal for us.
Thanks for making our family half marathon experience a truly wonderful one!
