Winemaker's Property offering Private Cottage in Gorgeous Setting
About Will Hamilton
Originally from Western Maryland, I have been living in McMinnville since 2006, after getting a position to help manage production at NW Wine Company, a custom wine-growing operation that was formerly based in town, (now in Dundee). After my son Olin was born in the Fall of 2007, I bought my home on Washington Street and have happily made SE McMinnville home for more than ten years, now serving on the board of our local neighborhood association called SODAN (South Downtown Association of Neighbors). We boast more historic homes than in any part of McMinnville. I started Violin Wine in 2013 to continue my passion for crafting Pinot Noirs of the highest integrity possible, focusing on fruit sources based primarily in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, only fifteen minutes South of town. I produce my wines and manage sales in Oregon, (both wholesale and personal tastings for customers), and try to spend as much time on the soccer field with my son as I can. We look forward to sharing some goodies from our garden depending on the Season.
Will Hamilton purchased this House in 2013
Why Will Hamilton chose McMinnville
In 2012, my Family purchased two adjacent tax lots to my property, which are also the only buildable lots in the flood plane behind my home. My Uncle (a Charlotte based architect) put together a design for the cottage in 2013 with the idea of a space that my Parents would occupy on their visits to Oregon. A superior local company called Cellar Ridge Construction built the structure between April and August of that year, and we have enjoyed it since. The tranquility and solitude of the meadow is always surprising considering how close to town we are located. This is the dual beauty of our space; it feels like the country but you can still walk to downtown in a few minutes.

Great Apartment Great Location
Cottage is wonderfully appointed with all you could need for a stay in wine country. Situated in a great location for walk-ability and access to the rest of the Willamette Valley. Would stay again!
Amazing Private Retreat in McMinnville!
We stayed with another couple for 2 nights and couldn't have been happier. The house was a great size with ample room for relaxing in the living room/kitchen areas and really nice sized bedrooms with high quality beds, linens and pillows. Plus everything in the house was quite new, including a magnificent walk-in shower in the master bedroom. The view of the grassy field from the deck was very soothing and it was so nice to be a five minute walk from all of the shops and restaurants - all of the advantages of staying in McMinnville with none of the noise and activity. Such a peaceful cottage and location. The pictures really don't do it justice! Also, Will was a pleasure to deal with. He was very responsive and extremely generous. You can't go wrong here.
Wonderful property. Everything was just perfect.
Everything just perfect. Great views. Comfortable and better than description. Would rent again. Centrally located to everything.
The home was very clean and quiet. The host very kind and kept to themselves. Also appreciated the quietness of the area. I would recommend this home to others.
