Property description

Enjoy a change from your fast-paced life. Relax in a quiet, country setting that is close to the vibrant town of McMinnville and the village of Carlton.

Separate entrances, and back deck under large walnut tree to enjoy an outdoor meal. Easy driveway parking next to a shady flower garden.

The refrigerator and pantry are stocked with breakfast foods, coffee, assorted teas for your use. You may also enjoy a complimentary bottle of our local wine.

Beautiful, warm furnishings with bamboo flooring, in large kitchen and living room, complete with books, television, movie library, games, wi-fi, and piano. Queen-sized bed, built-in sink and vanity, chair, CD player, and built-in cabinets and drawers in bedroom.

Nine goats and two alpacas in the pasture will entertain you from the large sun-drenched windows. Can you identify the native birds from the busy feeders? Pick a bouquet of flowers or herbs from the garden for your dinner table. Lounge on the deck to read a book and admire the views. Enjoy a relaxing country walk.

A large tree house and swinging bridge offer an unusual adventure for children and adults. What a great location from which to sip your morning coffee or afternoon wine! You have full access to all the gardens, porches, orchards and views around the apartment and main house. A new large swing set has been popular!

Your hosts, Sally and Ron, are a friendly, well-traveled couple who hope you will feel right at home. (They also respect your privacy.) Check out our reviews! We have many return guests.

The McMinnville area is an hour away from the pleasures of Portland and the thrill of the Pacific Ocean. Hiking, fishing, and wading in the nearby Nestucca River is a pleasure on hot summer days.

Just a 8-10 minute drive to McMinnville's popular Third Street, Thursday Farmer's Market (summer), and Saturday Public Market (all year). McMinnville is home to Linfield College, Evergreen Aviation Museum with IMAX theater and water-park, and excellent restaurants, wine bars, community theater, and boutique & antique shops in the historic old town.

More than a hundred vineyards and wineries surround the region. Check out the new wine scene in nearby Carlton. Also nearby is the Lafayette Antique Mall. You will delight in the local festivals in the surrounding communities throughout the summer.

Owner info

About the owner: Your hosts are Ron and Sally. We've raised our three children here since 1988, and they're now all young adults. We're not yet retired, but able to do some of our work from home. We're friendly, casual introverts. It has been great to meet a wonderful variety of people from all over the country.

Why the Owner Chose McMinnville:
Sally is a native Oregonian. She lived in Portland during her young adulthood, and hoped to raise the children in a more rural area. McMinnville, 33,000 po., has been perfect. And the countryside is just plain gorgeous! One of our friends dubbed our place Low Heaven Farm. It stuck -- and we have to agree that it IS 'heaven on earth.'

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love our country living, while still being close to town. Sally continues to expand the orchard -- it now has 34 varieties of apples, 8 plums, 5 pears, 4 cherries. Ron relishes his time on the tractor, and he just added 24 solar panels so the apartment's electricity needs are now supplied by solar energy.
