for where to celebrate an anniversary in Oregon? Our little
Eastern Oregon bed and breakfast
seems to be a popular choice. This last weekend alone we
hosted two couples celebrating their anniversaries. Here's
what they had to say (as quoted from the room journal):"We had a most

we've thoroughly spoiled
them--I hope the rest of
their vacation is as restful and restorative

we have a guest that has never stayed at a bed and breakfast
before--we call that guest a "B&B virgin"
for short. Often, it's the husband who is reluctant to
stay at a bed and breakfast. His major concerns:
"The bathroom's down the hall and I have to
share it with people I don't know."
"I have to talk at breakfast."
"There's too much lace and there are
dolls or teddybears everywhere."

one of our rooms has its own attached, private
