Wine connoisseurs may rejoice when they learn of The Allison Inn & Spa's proximity to over 200 wineries in the Willamette Valley, Oregon area. Luxury travelers will be impressed with The Allison's numerous accolades, including AAA's Four Diamond Award, Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List 2013, or the resort's LEED Gold Certification, to name a few. Nature lovers will be enamored with The Allison's prime location on 35 acres of rolling hills, with views to the surrounding vineyards, farmland, and fruit orchards. There truly is something at The Allison Inn & Spa for every traveler who appreciates luxury, beauty, and an environmentally-friendly resort destination.
Even though The Allison is surrounded by the beauty of nature in all directions, it is also conveniently located only a short drive from Portland, Oregon, the Portland Airport, and the Pacific Ocean. However, once guests arrive at this resort, they may not want to leave. Depending on your travel needs, you can choose one of the 77 guest rooms, one of the 8 suites, or for special occasions, the 1,575-square-foot Grand Penthouse Suite. All rooms and suites feature a private terrace/balcony, beautiful artwork, a fireplace, and custom furniture. Guests control the automatic window shades and the temperature with in-room technology, enjoy satellite television, and have access to resort-wide Wi Fi.
Venturing out of the sanctuary of your guest room leads to more adventures and activities. The resort features The Allison Spa, an indoor swimming pool, fitness studio, and JORY, the resort's restaurant. Art aficionados can peruse the resort's 500-piece art collection, while wine aficionados can sample one of the 800 wines on the award winning wine list. Gardens provide a quiet place for guests to sit and relax outside, or gather around the stone fireplace in the lobby with a few friends and a glass of wine. The surrounding area also offers plenty of activities nearby, from hot air balloon and helicopter rides, to horseback riding, to numerous museums for those interested in history and culture.
Providing guests with a luxury resort experience is important, but it isn't done at the expense of the environment at The Allison Inn & Spa. Earning LEED Gold Certification shows that this hotel is as committed to the environment as they are to a great lodging experience. The resort's location is not harmful to the surrounding Valley. The building features photo voltaic cells that generate some of the hotel's electricity, and several of the roofs feature green eco-roofing. Those wine bottles find new life after they are empty as handmade glassware. The furniture is handmade out of local Oregon wood. Even that enticing wine list features a selection of organic and sustainable wines.
The Allison Inn & Spa furthers their environmental commitment with daily practices that ensure the surrounding beauty of the land is preserved for future generations. The entire property is plastic bottle-free. Foods for JORY largely come from local growers or the on-site Chef's Garden. If you travel to the resort in your hybrid vehicle, there is a special parking spot just for you! Whether you're enjoying the spectacular views from your in-room window seat, strolling the criss-crossing footpaths that meander through the resort, or getting a relaxing spa treatment with natural, organic products, your stay at The Allison Inn & Spa is everything you'd expect from an award winning, eco-luxury resort.
