“Garden” is Oregon Garden Resort’s middle name in every way. A horticultural flair inspires everything about this property, which pays tribute to its rustic setting with a spa, fresh Northwest-inspired meals at the restaurant and an abundance of outdoor activities. But the main attraction is the setting itself: the Oregon Gardens. There’s a wide variety of botanical species and lush landscapes here, and it occupies an impressive 80 acres.
There’s plenty to see without even leaving the hotel grounds, including a cozy lounge with live music, the above restaurant (which serves lunch and dinner), an outdoor swimming pool and a hot tub. And with breathtaking garden views from your room’s window, you may never want to leave your Moonstone signature mattress, either. If you do, enjoy the activity offerings, like hiking, biking and fishing. The plants themselves may change, but these pastoral pastimes are perennial favorites.
Classic furnishings, jewel tones and sprawling views are what you can expect from the Oregon Garden Resort rooms. Fireplaces, scenic garden patios and Moonstone signature mattresses are just three of the enticing touches.
To get a premier Silverton dining experience, you don’t even have to leave the property. The Garden View Restaurant serves Northwest-inspired cuisine and wines, always paired with stunning views, from the large picture windows. Lunch and dinner menus feature classic dishes, like deli sandwiches, Caesar salad and crab cakes. For a casual gathering place, the Fireside Lounge is a cozy spot with live music and happy-hour specials. The central fireplace and surrounding couches are an ideal space to enjoy small plates, like garlic fries, fried avocados and flatbread chicken pizza.
Moonstone Spa is a complete therapeutic and meditative experience, focused on restoring energy through both mind and body. The surrounding 80-acre Oregon Garden landscape contributes to the peaceful atmosphere of this state-of-the-art facility that holds a hot tub, outdoor pool, fitness center and luxurious lounge. From the Hot Buttered Stone Massage and purifying facials to the Fresh Squeezed and Lavender Fields body scrubs, the variety of treatments here are also soothing and indulgent.
Perfectly situated in Northern Oregon, Silverton lets you discover all that this Pacific Northwest state has to offer. From historical sites and wineries to outdoor adventure and premier shopping, Oregon Garden Resort itself puts you near many of the region’s best attractions, including the Frank Lloyd Wright Gordon House, several golf courses, Silver Falls State Park, East Valley Winery Tour and Woodburn Premium Outlets. And the Oregon Gardens? Why, they’re just out your door, of course.
How to Get There
As far as the resort goes, for us, it wasn't remarkable at all. It did serve it's purpose by being close to our daughter's family. The room we had #303 was clean, the beds (double queen) were comfortable. In my opinion, the patio could use some work to improve its appearance. In fact, the resort was satisfactory, now the restaurant and bar is a different matter that I will address in another report. We walked the gardens, even though there was a warning that a mountain lion was spotted in the area....the gardens were nice.
This was my first time visiting this beautiful garden resort. Last time I was at the Oregon Garden the resort was not built yet. The room was spacious and clean and we had a beautiful view from our private deck of the coast range. The continnental breakfast provided had a great variety of items to choose from. Looking forward to my next stay.
We stayed in a room that had its own little patio area, so it was great to just sit outside and enjoy the weather. And, it was so nice to be able to walk around Oregon Garden and enjoy the beautiful flowers and nature. And, the breakfast was delicious!
We enjoyed this hotel. It had spectacular landscaping - this creates a continuity with your experience in the oregon gardens - really very special. The room we had was spacious and well appointed. Breakfast is in a large dining room, and there are also outdoor tables. I think it is an enjoyable vacation hotel.
We were at this resort several years ago and enjoyed the experience. The outside appearance is great with grounds appropriate for its location next to the Oregon Gardens. Our assigned room was smallish but adequate. However, although clean, it showed a lot of wear and tear with scarred furniture. The top sheet on the bed was worn very thin and badly stained. Should have been replaced long ago. Of course, one of the good parts of the resort is that it provides access to the Oregon Gardens which is worth a visit. After spending time in the Garden upon arrival, we went to happy hour in the Fireside Lounge. Very popular with lots of guests choosing to eat from their bar menu. Inexpensive by comparison. We had dinner at the main restaurant, the Garden View. NIce view, friendly and helpful staff but overall the food was disappointing. We shared a beet salad that was quite good and both chose the NY strip steak with baked potato and asparagus. The potato was not hot enough to be great and the asparagus was plain. Although grilled exactly as requested the steak was not good at all. Tough enough to be hard to cut and chew and rather flavorless. Should have sent it back but we both ate some and weren't hungry enough for anything else. Will not eat there again. There is not a lot of choice around Silverton so the resort is okay. Just eat in the bar.
