Dining in Luxury

After a hard day of wine tasting, we wanted to get a quick bite before picking up the dogs at Mom's. It used to be the kids, now it's the dogs!  LOL  Anyway, after munching our way through the Oregon wine country, on lovely cheeses and pate and chocolate, we just wanted a light meal.  It worked out perfectly to also check out the new Allison Inn and Spa.  Wow, what an amazing place.  I could see coming here for a special anniversary or occasion, since it's quite spendy-rooms start at $295 a night....but, what a beautiful place! 
From the back, it's four stories tall! 
The building is very sleek and modern, and as you can see, the rock work is incredible! 
Beautiful natural features.  There were lots of places with covered decks, so even in Oregon's unpredictable weather, you could sit outside.
I loved all the things they used for sustainability, like the succulent roof-top gardens!
The grounds had a beautiful 'English Garden' feel... 
We ordered food in the bar area, and you could see the chefs preparing meals in the kitchen.  The dinningroom is on the left.

Rick ordered sausage with mashed potatoes, and I ordered a burger with feta and caramelized onions, which he also shared.  it was all very good.
