I stopped by Meritage Meadows the other afternoon for their open house. They are located in Redmond at 21407 NE Union Hill Road, Redmond, WA 98053, close to Woodinville Wine Country, They are looking for wine lovers, B&B fans, and the business traveler to fill their five beautiful rooms. All the rooms are named after Washington AVA’s; Puget, Columbia, Yakima, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla. Did I mention the Red Mountain room has a jetted Japanese soaking tub? You can get a Continental or full breakfast during your stay.
Meritage Meadows is owned and run by husband and wife team Bob and Karen Spencer. Bob was an Engineering Manager in the medical field and cooked his way through college. Karen has a Geology degree and became a stay at home Mom when their two boys came along. Naturally, they decided to open a B&B for the next phase of their lives. Bob has also been making wine for about 10 years. You can look for his first commercial releases in 2011 & 2012. He makes a crisp tropical fruit & grapefruit flavored Sauvignon Blanc and his 2007 Cab Merlot blend is very good. His winey is Union Hill Winery.
