R. R. Thompson House, Carlton, Oregon

R. R. T. Bed and Breakfast, Carlton, Oregon

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!
