Some of these local businesses also offer food. Stop in for a delicious meal at McMenamins Grand Lodge, Zippy's Pizza, or The One Horse Tavern (which allows you to bring your own wine).
Many of the vineyards also invite you to wander around and even relax on the lawn with a picnic.
If you want to extend the trip over multiple days, you can book a room at the charming McMenamins Grand Lodge, rent the AirBNB cottage at Kookoolan Farms, or stay in a neighboring town.
