10-Grain Luke Bread

Baguettes, croissants, 10-grain bread and fruit pastries.  These are a few of the wonderfully tasty baked goods available at Carlton Bakery in Carlton, Oregon. Tim and Ahmee Corrigan own and operate the bakery at 305 W. Main St.

Equipped with a custom-made, three-deck oven manufactured in Germany, the bakery has won fans in Carlton and beyond. After just one year of operation, the Corrigans supply some of the top restaurants in the area with delicious breads. These include The Painted Lady and The Dundee Bistro.

Guests of the R. R. Thompson House Bed and Breakfast, three short blocks down Kutch Street, have raved about the breads and sweet treats; many have enjoyed lunch at the bake shop, open Wednesday through Sunday.

The bakery is proving to be a good fit in Carlton and the wider Wine Country community. Come enjoy!

Searching for a  beautiful, comfortable bed and breakfast for your trip to Oregon Wine Country?  Located in the ‘great little town’ of Carlton, we are within walking distance of two dozen plus wine tasting rooms, as well as restaurants and shops.  One guest posted this review on tripadvisor.com after a recent visit:

“This place is a wonderful choice.  The location is great:  walking distance to everything and still on a quiet street for sweet dreams after your wine tasting (in a king, extra comfortable bed)!  The house has a cozy style and the owners are simply lovely!  We stayed in the Lavender Suite and it is impressive by its beauty and space.  The jacuzzi in our bedroom was absolutely relaxing…

“At breakfast, the owner cooked a delicious birthday cake for my boyfriend (and even packed it for our trip).  I was speechless!!!  Definitely recommend it to everybody.  There you can feel at home with friends, not in an impersonal place.  Loved it!!!!”

We invite you to experience genuine hospitality in Carlton!
