The Joseph Mattey House is an 1892 Queen Anne Victorian on the National Historic Register and was built by Joseph Mattey, an orphan who began his life at Dr Barnado’s Home in England. A butcher by trade, Joseph introduced Hereford cows to the Willamette Valley to raise the standard of local meats.  His enterprising pluck served him well, and he enjoyed a long and successful business career.

The house has gone through several owners, and at one time served as a strawberry farm.  It has been a B&B since the mid-1980s. Its cross-Atlantic origins have come full circle, as the present owners are also British.  After years of global adventure and living in Germany, Italy and locations across the USA, Jack and Denise discovered the house in 1993 and eagerly became its proprietors.  Resting on ten acres, nestled behind the vineyard and surrounded by stately cedars, the inn offers a peaceful, secluded setting in the heart of Oregon wine country.  The inn is ideally located for many wineries, restaurants, antique shops, art galleries, the Evergreen Aviation Museum (home of the Spruce Goose) and day trips to the coast and mountains.

The B&B is air-conditioned and has 4 bedrooms all with private bathrooms.
