    Great for anything. Well-maintained paved trail, duck pond, grocery nearby, dog cleanup bags provided, and quite scenic as it extends for a few miles along the river to the downtown area. I walk my dog here and we love it.

    Hillcrest was on our short list of wineries to visit during our stay in Roseburg. It will be our top choice if/when we return.

    WINES: 5.0. We did a tasting of 5 red wines. All were excellent, with several unique stand-outs. In addition to wines produced from Hillcrest Vineyard varietals, the tasting included a Catalan blend "Lo Americano" from a Hillcrest partner near Barcelona, with the blending done by the Hillcrest vintner. Also particularly enjoyed "Anonymous" -- blended to resemble a top Hungarian wine (and marked by a historically rich name), and "The Pig".

    SERVICE: 5.0. Wonderful conversation with one of the owners during our tasting, covering a range of subjects related (sometimes distantly) to wine. A genuine experience.

    AMBIANCE: 4.5. An historic Oregon winery, Hillcrest has a rustic patina with lovingly hand-tendered dry-farmed vines. Apparently one of the very few US wineries with a "Slow Wine" designation. Focus is on offering excellent wines in an ambiance resembling comfortably broken-in handmade leather shoes. Refreshingly unflashy tasting room.

    This museum, visible from the I-5, occupies a striking modern building reminiscent of both the first homes of pioneers and the somber mountains around Rouseburg. Inside,
    you will find amazing artifacts: Native American beaded buck skin clothing, arrows and guns, and even a door still bearing bullet scars. You will get acquainted with the history of the county, and also about the wild life in the area.
    The crown jewel - a fully restored wagon... In the courtyard see the lumber truck from 1951... The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I loved every minute of my visit.

    Off HWY 138. Signage is good. The road is very narrow. The parking area is moderate. Pit toilets. Some information boards. Not much of a trail. More an easy walk. 400 feet of boardwalk & an accessible viewing platform.
    This is a gorgeous waterfall with good water flow in August.

    Out of the four waterfalls we visited that morning this was a favorite!

    This review is for a stay at the Reustle Prayer Rock Inn (aka the Carriage House) in Mar, 2022. We 2 stayed three nights.

    Plenty of room for one or (if one includes the downstairs area) two couples. Very clean. No problems with the Internet over Wi-Fi connection. After we checked in, we were delightfully on our own, having little further contact with the hosts. It was a great base from which to visit additional wineries, an olive orchard, and more.

    The location is idyllic, down a short winding dirt driveway to the Inn and Tasting Room, in a small valley flanked by pastures and vineyards; during our stay the slopes were lush and green. The nights were refreshingly very dark outside (as there was virtually no outside lighting in sight), and almost the only sounds we heard were those of nature and farm animals.

    Sheep and small goats were in the nearby pastures, as well as about four (I think) heirloom long-haired horned cattle. Wild turkeys roamed about the vineyards and woods. We were free to walk the grounds, and enjoyed a wonderful view of the valley from the path that ran along the top of the vineyards.

    A delicious charcuterie dish and scones were waiting for us in the refrigerator when we arrived. Fresh farm eggs were available if one walked out to the henhouse and collected some eggs in the morning: beautiful orange yokes with creamy thick whites. A coffee machine with sufficient coffee for our stay was provided. Wine available for purchase was available in a wine fridge.

    We brought along food with which to prepare our dinners, and were glad we did. Restaurants were about a 20 minute drive away, and we preferred our own meals to what those restaurants were offering.

    When we arrived we did a wine tasting of four wines, each paired with an appetizer. The wines were excellent, and went well with the paired food. After arrival we entered the stone tasting room to check in, and then sat outside for our tasting. We found the unique stone building housing the tasting room to be attractive, inside and out.

    What a beautiful place! Very inviting inside and out. Outside are tables with umbrellas to shield you from the sun. The deck overlooks the vineyards and the mountains in the distance. When we arrived on a Thursday afternoon in September, we were greeted and served promptly. There were only a couple of other tables occupied. We enjoyed most of the wines and in particular the Rose and Pinot Noir which we bought. It would be nice if they waived the tasting fee when you purchased a couple bottles. All in all, an enjoyable way to spend an hour or two!

    Found this place on Trip Advisor and figured it was worth a visit. We spent well over an hour wandering thru the buildings and yard. John was friendly, helpful and entertaining while we scavenged thru all the treasures. His place is well organized, prices were quite good and we found a number of pieces that we loved. Great place if you like antiques, yard art, old furniture or rusty stuff!!! Loved it!

    Contrary to other reviews we did not find it crowded. There is enough vegetation between sites for some privacy. The campground is in the middle of a massive burn scar but they were able to protect it.
    When we arrived our campsite was in perfect condition, the whole site had been carefully raked, and they even left an artistic pattern in the gravel. Kudos to the camp hosts.

    This was a beautiful park with a very large disc golf course - unfortunately it was logged and many camp sites left with deep ruts - there is still a lot of beauty in the park, but bad decisions have made some scars that will never heal.

    I was hosted for a luncheon and tasting here with a group of fellow wine bloggers, and I enjoyed everything about this winery. Melrose Vineyards is located near the South Umpqua River and the owner (and all-around down-to-Earth farmer) Wayne Parker is a real gem. He planted the original vineyard here in 1996 and in a few years, began selling his fruit to other wineries. Soon, Wayne decided to start his own boutique winery. Today, that tasting room sits in a photogenic barn that's a century old.

    The tasting room is part wine sampling station, part gift shop. If you're looking for wine-themed chotchkes or a souvenir to carry back home, this is your place. From necklaces to magnets to gourmet food items to t-shirts, the boutique at Melrose has what you're looking for. I had a ton of fun browsing the various knick-knacks for sale. There's a large tasting bar and a small outdoor balcony with a couple of tables and stunning views of the landscape. I would recommend trying to snag one of the outdoor tables if you're here for a tasting but if they are full, at least step outside to snap a few photos.

    My group was served a light and bright lunch from the winery's chef, who also helps cater group events. We were served a portion of vegetable lasagna with a small salad and garlic bread. The food was all vegan (even made with fake "cashew cheese") and while I was skeptical, it did taste good and was made with farm-fresh ingredients.

    Due to Wayne's outrageous hospitality, he literally poured anything any of us wanted. Yes, anything. I finally stopped at a dozen wines, although I wanted to try it all. I kept asking Wayne what I should try next, and he didn't steer me wrong. Out of the wines I tried, there were a couple that I found to meet or exceed my expectations.

    The first was the Parker's Pinot Noir (priced at $45, this was the most expensive wine for sale). This wine had a long finish and slightly harsh tannins that probably need a few more months to a year to calm down. But the structure and flavor of this wine was very good.

    On the opposite spectrum, the $18 Two Dog Red was a fantastic poolside sipper. This blush wine is bright pink with an adorable, eye-catching label that was created by an artist from Hawaii. You may be drawn in by the gimmicky name and cartoon label, but this is a crowd-pleasing wine with crisp, slightly sweet pineapple and cherry fruit notes. This is a wine that even your friend who swears she "doesn't like wine" will not only be able to drink, but will likely love.

    For those seeking a white that's a little bit different, try the Pinot Gris ($20). With its pale straw color and melon-heavy nose, this wine is also interesting enough to recommend.

    It's worth mentioning that there's something wine-wise here that will fit into almost everyone's budget. The wines are very fairly priced, with the most expensive bottle topping out just below $50.

    To me, Melrose offers a real Oregon experience. From the extensive porfolio of myriad varietals to the renovated old barn, it doesn't get much better. And if you get the chance to chat with Wayne, take it.

    This garden is totally the product of volunteers with the Master Gardeners which is part of the OSU extension agency. There are several areas that display a variety of flowers and vegetation, all beautifully and thoughtfully planted and displayed. This garden if accessible for those with walking limitations.

    I visited this winery many years ago and have remembered it since. Recently I wanted to know the name of a dessert wine they used to offer, learned that they no longer bottle dessert wines and they let me know of similar wines they do have. This process was handled with great understanding rather than 'oh here is someone who can't remember and is a pest'. I was delighted to interact with these folks years ago, and that same joy is what I experienced now. Their wine tastings are an experience all their own! Wonderful wines, great people, and a lot of class!
