About Doug & Lori Petersen
Doug and Lori purchased this apartment and the surrounding property in early 2013. The building has now become a neighborhood gem. The first floor was brilliantly restored to house Valley Wine Merchants, a wine mercantile with a wall of wine that will make any wine taster giddy. The owners are excited to offer the second story (The Newberg Downtowner) to travelers from near and far. The Downtowner Newberg is filled with amazing finds from Doug's experience as an auctioneer that he couldn't wait to share.

Why Doug & Lori Petersen chose Newberg
Doug's gift is seeing the potential in a property. After restoring numerous properties throughout Newberg (the kind of homes you'd see on This Old House), Doug saw the beauty and reward of restoring this building and what it could offer the community. The Downtowner Newberg was stripped to the bones and re-planned and furnished to accommodate the modern necessities of a traveler(s) to Oregon Wine Country.

Sweet location and nice layout for two couples
An easy, comfortable place to make our base for golf outings and wine tasting. Plus the ease of walking to restaurants and the wine merchant below the apartment. The bedrooms/bathrooms layout was ideal for two couples. Lori is very responsive host if you have questions!
Thank you! It makes me happy to know you had a great time.
Not an entirely pleasant experience.
This property, while having some character and located in the middle in town, was not appropriate for our family at all. We were 4 people and it was much too small for us. There was no room to put anything or store clothing. One room had no closet at all - only a few hangers on the back of a door. The other room had a small armoir with 2 hangers. It was really hard to maneuver around the bedroom. But the beds were by far the worst part of our trip. All 4 of us were so surprised by how awful they were: both were bouncy and sweeky. It was really hard to sleep. Also, we were sad there was no table/chairs for the four of us to sit and eat or play cards. On a positive note, the showers were great and the location ideal (albeit with a little street noise). This place would be good for 2 heavy sleepers who want a night or two in town.
I'm sorry you had an unpleasant experience. This is not the usual review I receive. I'm even more sorry that you weren't available to meet with us to discuss/resolve your issues. I value constructive criticism and will definitely address your concerns regarding the beds. As far as the room sizes go, I'm not able to do anything with that - each have queen beds and room to walk on either side. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Willamette Valley.
While this place is not in Dundee hills, it’s super convenient. We stayed there for three nights, enjoyed the place. Everything in the house is well kept - clean, has everything you would need. I think it’s a great place for 2-4 day stay.
Great place for two couples. Close to wineries.
Beautiful design & function. Free parking on street was good. Comfortable layout. Great amenities like AC in summer. Cable was nice vs. just Netflix.
Thanks James - glad you enjoyed your stay and the much needed a/c!
A nice, well located, second floor apartment for up to two couples
This was the first time we had rented this property. Overall, it was very nice in every respect. The master BR had a terrific shower and the floorplan was good. But in all honesty, we did not spend any time in Newberg during the day. We had other family members staying in the Dundee area, and we were over there except for sleeping. This would be a property that I would rent again.
Cozy, modern, convenient
Loved our stay. Everything it was advertised to be. In the heart of downtown Newberg. Much better for two couples than staying at some sterile hotel up the street. Owners did an impeccable job on the remodel. Only disappointment was the phonograph did not work. Just hummed. But what can you expect for a 1960's vintage stereo console? ; )
Thanks, Doug and Lori!
