When you picture your perfect vacation, do you imagine staying in a trailer? Probably not.
But The Vintages Trailer Resort is an adorable little place to set up camp in the Willamette Valley, just 30 minutes south of Portland, Ore., and near historic downtown McMinnville.
These trailers are the perfect way to spend a fun couple of days with the family or on a romantic getaway just for two.

Explore the Willamette Valley
Willamette Valley is one of the United States' top wine-producing regions, so The Vintages Trailer Resort is literally surrounded by hundreds of wineries.
During your stay, you can visit lots of wineries and discover why Oregon's Pinot noir has become world famous, while using your vintage trailer as a home base.
Also nearby is the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, home of the world-famous Spruce Goose. Not only is the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum packed full of planes, thus offering an educational experience, but it's also home to Wings and Waves Waterpark.
This is an indoor, all-season educational waterpark that includes 10 water slides , a wave pool and a hands-on museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water.
Here, you can slide out of a real Boeing 747 aircraft sitting on the roof!
The Covered Bridges Scenic Highway also calls the Willamette Valley home, and The Vintages provides you with cruiser bikes that you can use for exploring.
On this bike path, you'll pedal past four historic covered bridges along the loop and view two more right in town.
You can even ride through the Mosby Bridge and the Chambers Bridge, which is the only covered railroad bridge west of the Mississippi.
Come Back to Quiet
Each of the 17 vintage trailers at The Vintages Trailer Resort offers a unique lodging experience tailored to complement your wine tasting, dining and exploration. No two trailers are alike, and each can accommodate different sized parties.
All of the trailers have been remodeled and updated. And one of the trailers dates back as far as 1947!
Amenities inside your trailer include gourmet pour-over coffee from Caravan Coffee, luxurious terrycloth robes, comfortable mattresses and hotel-quality linens.
Your room also includes tableware, utensils and a wine opener.
Outside, each trailer features a propane grill and sitting chairs. On-site is a pool, hot tub and game room.
Pets are allowed. In fact, the resort sits right next door to a dog park, where your four-legged friend can run around while you pick wild blackberries.
The resort also offers beautiful views, including dramatic sunsets over neighboring vineyards.
This park resort is quiet and peaceful, and it's overall a lovely place to get away.
