Praise for Kelly's Kitchen


"A great place to stay. Kelly had fresh fruit from her garden for breakfast every morning." 

 

"Kelly prepared the most wonderful continental breakfast for us. In summary, we did not want to leave. We do hope to visit again to spend more time exploring!"

 

"I had a delightful stay at the Wandering Inn during OSU’s Moms Weekend. Kelly was a warm and gracious hostess, who made me feel like family. Her breakfasts are delicious." 

 

"Breakfasts were wonderful and different each day."

 

" I requested a vegan breakfast and OMG was it delicious! The bed was the coziest I think we've ever slept in. We even took their advice and ended up at the Farmer's Market in Corvallis and stopped in to meet Kathy at White Wind Superfoods to thank her for recommending the yummy smoothie Kelly prepared with our breakfast. It was just a really nice 24 hours of peace and relaxation that was much needed! We even took home some tomato plants as well as some lightly roasted walnuts fresh from their produce farm."

 

"Bob and Kelly were the best hosts I've experienced in Airbnb! They were very welcoming and down to earth people! Kelly made us the best and a very delicious continental breakfast including her amazing muffins!! She gave us a tour of the greenhouse and garden in which we were allowed to pick from. Thank you for that!" 

 

"The breakfast delicious. Kelly makes the best granola I've ever tasted; put blackberries and strawberries picked from their garden that morning on top with some yummy yogurt and smile. This was our first Airbnb experience and we're sold on it. No more impersonal hotels and motels with noisy heating/a.c. units with indifferent staff."

 

"We were greeted with fresh baked cookies, berries and ice cold water. Corvallis was one of the stops on our bike tour and it was a perfect place to relax after a long days journey. There were little surprises all over, like Pico, the macaw, who is very friendly and the dog is a total sweetheart. The bed was very comfortable and the room was serene and super clean and cozy. Breakfast was wonderful! Kelly is a great cook and baker. We had freshly baked bread, muffins, local fruit that was better than anything store bought (Yum!), homemade granola and coffee.  I would definitely stay here again! Thanks so much Kelly & Bob!
