                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Period renovation and fixtures/features & modern plumbing, wiring & HVAC. Our vision was to offer space for families/groups to stay at one location with Inn like amenities - Outdoor gathering areas, indoor event facilities and lovely accommodations.

Forest Grove has quaint shops, restaurants, brewery, billiards, frisbee golf, theatre and a European feel. Our Inn is another component to those offerings.

                          Why the Owner Chose Forest Grove:
                          Love it here. Samuel is a successful contractor and I a property manager/realtor in our area and in portland. We love houses. We are hoping to continue current offerings, add a few more and partner with local businesses to grow the attraction to the wineries and our community. We stay well connected to the downtown, university, wineries - our areas establishments.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
