The house has a great location, perfect to access food and wine in Carlton. You are within walking distance of all Carlton has to offer. The place was roomy and perfect for my wife and 14-month daughter. The team was also able to provide a pack-n-play for a reasonable fee, which was very convenient. Note that some of the restaurants in Carlton are closed some days, but you are a quick drive to McMinnville.

Our host greeted us personally with a bottle of wine. She was very friendly, helpful, informative, & welcoming.
We loved Ruth's Cottage. It is airy and open but still has a cozy feel. We enjoyed being right in Carlton. We ate out several nights in places within walking distance.

This was the perfect spot. It is such a beautifully designed space that really paid homage to the craftsmanship of the home. We stayed during the heatwave and were very comfortable given the hot conditions. Easy walking distance to wineries and dining. We love Carlton and cant wait to spend more time at Ruths cottage when we visit again.

We just finished a delightful weekend of Yamhill County wine tasting. Visited 5 different wineries, then came back to the house for a walkabout through Carltons tasting rooms. Very comfortable with everything we needed. Looking forward to staying here again

It was clean and the hosts were awesome.

We had a wonderful stay for five days at the Cartlon house! The home has everything you need to make meals at home, but if you don't feel like cooking, there are many great restaurants and wine tasting rooms just a short walk down the street. It was a great location to travel to all of the nearby wineries, and we loved that we could walk to restaurants after a day of wine tasting. The yard is huge, and I would love to come back in the summertime. There is tons of space, and we enjoyed using the record player while relaxing in the living room. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to book a future stay when we are back in the area

Thank you for the wonderful time!
We loved our stay here. The cottage is only two blocks from downtown Carlton, so we were able to walk there to pick up food and coffee. The town itself is right in the middle of wine country, with a number of tasting rooms right in the downtown area and tons of others within a short driving distance. We took advantage of the clawfoot tub almost every night - it is the perfect size for a hot bath on a cold night. Highly recommend!

Carlton is about to open up into the next hip town! Loved the proximity to downtown with the quality restaurants, bakery, hair salon and of course tasting rooms. The cottage was great.
