La Bastide Bed & Breakfast + Dundee Eats


I can't say enough about how lovely our accommodations were in the Willamette Valley. La Bastide Bed & Breakfast was comfortable, relaxing, and a touch romantic; the perfect spot to end our vacation. The innkeepers Mark and Elizabeth built the house just recently in 2014; the name referring to a country home in Provence, France, with a nod to their personal style and the style of wines in Dundee. Our second floor room had soft new carpets underfoot, crisp white linens, tasteful artwork, breezy curtains, a walk in closet, fireplace and a spacious bathroom. We had a charming view of the neighboring Hyland Estates. And if the photos are any indication - Elizabeth's elegant two-course breakfasts were also a highlight of our stay. 

La Bastide is located just off the main road in Dundee, so it was an easy walk to dinner, and it is within two miles of 25 tasting rooms and wineries. Currently they are operating 3 guest rooms, and plan to have 7 up and running in the coming months.

 We enjoyed thoughtfully prepared Northwest wine country cuisine and a romantic setting at Tina's for dinner on our first evening.
 What we drank + ate: Old Fashioned ($11) Makers Mark with muddled cherry, orange, and a bitters-soaked sugar lump / Añejo Marguerita ($11) classic, everything fresh squeezed with Cointreau and a salty rim / House Salad ($8) organic greens, shallot vinaigrette, parmesan & hazelnuts / Pumpkin Soup ($8) / Duck Breast ($34) seared & roasted, with creamy fried polenta, braised greens and a green peppercorn sauce / Lamb Rack ($44) heirloom green beans, yukon gold-horseradish rösti and a riesling beurre blanc / Chocolate Soufflé Cake ($10) with house made ice cream.

And on our second evening after a full day of wine tasting, (our last one just upstairs at Domaine Trouvere) it was the casual vibe and good eats at Red Hills Market that drew us in.
 We kept it simple, sharing a couple beers served in mason jars, a delicious Potato Soup ($5) and wood fired Margarita Pizza ($12). 

And that's a wrap! We're done with Oregon! I'm officially ending on a Margarita Pizza and beers in downtown Dundee. Thank you for following along as I got to re-live this adventure. If you are considering planning a trip to the incredible state that is Oregon - DO IT!!

  3. I love B&B's- so charming and quaint and I love how you can get to know the owners. We stayed at a fantastic B&B in Boothbay Harbor called the Topside Inn- search my blog for it and you'll most definitely want to stay there sometime! That pizza looks fantastic, btw.
