With its colorful history and as the States’ official supplier of the hazelnut – growing 99 percent of the entire US commercial crop – Oregon is a wonderful place to visit.

If you’re looking for somewhere semi-self-sufficient, Alder Creek Guest Cottage is a traditional renovated home amid Corvallis and Benton county – which provides easy access to the coast, mountains and Portland, so it’s a great base for exploring. Each guest room has a cozy gas fireplace and access to a kitchenette, and you can meet the free-range chickens who provide your eggs for breakfast. If it’s raining, hang out in the lounge with a cup of tea, catch up on a DVD or utilize the library of books.
