This made the perfect spot for a local getaway with my spouse and infant. The property itself is charming with mature landscaping, flowers, and a great outdoor space. The inside of the property has lovely historic charm with modern comforts and the host adds nice special touches. Its all of two blocks to all the tasting rooms and restaurants in downtown Carlton making it easy to keep the car parked for the weekend.

Ruth's Cottage will exceed your expectations. Sure, the photos are great. But the reality is even better! An amazing treasure of a home, with tasteful furnishings in every room. Ten-foot ceilings! And a short walk to town for great coffee and pastries, great wine, restaurants, and friendly folks. We didn't expect to be so wowed by Carlton! We hope to be back again before too long!

Great historic place to stay in Oregon wine country! Perfect location, updated kitchen, plenty of room for a couple or small family. Room for improvement with the mattress (too firm for us).

The team was very communicative leading up to the stay and check-in was very easy. They left us a lovely bottle of wine and a card to welcome us to the house. Recommend highly!

Thank you for the card, coffee, and bubbly!
What a gem! Beautiful old house under a gorgeous oak tree. Two blocks from restaurants, wine tasting, and a couple of shops. In the heart of the wine country. Well-stocked kitchen, records and a piano to play, Nest thermostat, and great central heat. Very homey, quiet, clean, and comfortable!

This house has such a fun vibe! We loved drinking the wine we had just bought while listening to the records. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the town was quaint as could be. Be sure to check out K&M and try their Syrah! And dont miss the Carlton Bakery. You can easily walk and enjoy the town - but, be sure to grocery shop before you arrive!

Very professional, organized, and helpful management team. Highly recommended.
A fantastic place to stay in Carlton to explore the surrounding wineries and vistas. Great location in town and within walking distance of bars, tasting rooms, restaurants, and shops. A lovely old farmhouse that still has a lot of original charm. Quiet, friendly neighborhood with a nice yard to enjoy with wine, a book or even a game of bocce. Comfortable house with a lot of thoughtful touches, including a well-appointed kitchen.

We loved our stay at Ruths Cottage and would stay there again. Very well decorated, comfortable bed and nice bathroom linens. The kitchen and baths were equipped with everything we needed. We even had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival. The town of Carlton is very small but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Several restaurants and tasting rooms and a wonderful bakery. Management contacted us upon our booking and was quick to respond to our questions. This is an observation but there is not a large grocery store in town so any major shopping may need to be done before arriving. There is a very small market in town but we did not check it out

This is a charming home and is very conveniently located to the downtown area. Communication was great, and we really enjoyed our stay.
