About Christa

Hi we are the Hailwood family we moved here from Southern California and bought a farm. We love every minute of it. We would love for you stay in our cozy cottage and enjoy the farm scenery. Cottage may be rented for short or long visits. Check out Independence Facebook page or City of Independence calendar for up coming Fall, Spring and Summer events. This little town has a lot to offer. Cottage is 20 mins outside of Salem, 25 mins from Corvallis, 35 min. from McMinnville, 1.2 hr from Portland and 1.2 hr from the coast. Also local winery's and beer breweries.

Christa purchased this house in 2015

Why Christa chose Independence

We traveled through Independence and fell in love with the town. When this fixer upper property came up for sale. We sold our house in California and moved to the country. We have enjoyed fixing up this little farm. The property includes the cottage, work shed, barn and the main house where we live. We started with the cottage. Took it down to its studs and built it right back up. It's the first house built on the property in 1942.

What makes this house unique

The cottage is located on 2 acre with views of the barn, and the property along with our furry friends. We have two dogs, two cats, chickens and three ducks.

Diamond in the Ruff

  • 5 of 5

This quaint place is centrally located between Corvallis and Salem. A little bit of a drive to each town but if you want an exceptional place to stay at a reasonable price this is your spot. Clean as a whistle, nicely furnished and with great beds.

Convenient, Clean, and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This unit was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. The blackout blinds were a great! Small, but well designed and has everything for a family (kitchen, laundry, bunk beds). We only stayed one night but would stay longer if we're back in the area. Thank you!

Convenient, clean and private

  • 5 of 5

Great location for us to attend an event at Western Oregon University. Loved having the privacy of our own little place. The cottage was clean and well stocked. Spent some time walking around the beautiful campus at WOU and then walking around the streets of Independence on a Saturday morning. We will definitely return and bring our golf clubs. Enjoyed getting to meet the kids and the animals.
