July 2020

Oregon wine country is a unique blend of scenic beauty and great wines. The Black Walnut is the perfect location to enjoy much of what the mid-Willamette Valley has to offer. Panoramic views of vineyards and a great combination of comfortable accommodations and great service.

April 2019

Perfect stay in Dundee. The property is beautiful, and there is a lovely patio (complete with comfortable chairs and a fire pit) from which to enjoy the breathtaking views of the valley.
