Discovering The Vintages in the heart of the Willamette Valley

Located in Dayton is a very unique property where I had a chance to stay during my trip to the Willamette Valley.

Lawrence and I ate most of our meals in nearby McMinnville which was about a 10 minute drive away from the resort as I am more into dining out than doing my own cooking.

Community Plate was a wonderful restaurant to start the day, I had a short stack order of their Buttermilk Pancakes (3) topped with butter and maple syrup; I also had the Yogurt granola and an Iced Americano which is made with Stumptown Coffee.

The Vintages trailer Resort is one that features vintage rv trailers that feature everything in one unit, you will find a sleeping area bedroom, bathroom, living room sitting area as well as a kitchen.

Once checked-in, Lawrence and I received a map showing where our trailer was along with a guide of the area. The resort we were staying in happens to be centrally located in the Willamette Valley surrounded by vineyards.

After our wine tour of the Willamette Valley with Mary of Wine Dirt, we headed back to McMinnville for dinner at Pure Vida Cocina, specializing in Mexican cuisine. Here we enjoyed the special, Arepa with beef short rib which was delicious. We shared a couple of entrees which were both huge, the Vegetarian Chile Relleno with quinoa and a delicious avocado sauce; along with the Chicken Enchiladas with a delicious carrot mole.
