There is a spacious front porch perfect for relaxing, reading, bird watching, or enjoying a taste from the day’s winery tours.

What makes this Farmhouse unique
This house and property have been in our family for 3 generations – first bought by my grandparents in the 30’s, then owned by my parents, now owned by us. We have just recently completed a 3-years-long remodel of the home, keeping as much of the original architecture intact as possible. Many of the interior walls are still lath and plaster. This house was a Sears and Roebuck kit home – these were popular home kits from the turn of the century through the 40’s. So far, we have not yet been able to exactly identify our home’s plan and name, but you can see many of these identifying architectural features in our home. As you walk through our country home -look for these features! And, the remodel continues! As we have time, the next project is a rebuild of the old red brick garage my grandfather built in the 50’s. Also, the upper backyard area is still a works-in-progress.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Truly a Home Away From Home
We stayed for one month for the birth of our first grandson and we were still not ready to leave. It was so peaceful and the owners thought of everything. It was wonderful to have our own space to host guests and have all the necessities provided. The home is immaculate and everything worked perfectly. We had a fantastic time visiting all the little towns and wineries and especially the water falls. I will definitely be back!
We stayed at this property for my daughter's graduation from Willamette. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and the home was immaculate. My best experience ever with VRBO!
A Home away from home
This was our 3rd visit to Oregon since our daughter moved to Salem, and our 2nd week stay at this cozy wine cottage. You feel welcomed and at home from the first time you unlock the door. The home is very well equipped and comfortable with many ammenities. We enjoyed a family Holiday dinner then shared the fruits of the Willamette Vineyards after dinner with a starlit sky and the Cascade Mountains as a back drop. It is as incredible as it sounds, thank you Marilyn and John, I hope that your home is available each and every time we visit Oregon.
perfect holiday location
Just returned from a month in this beautiful place and we are homesick for this lovely little house. It was just the right choice for our family to get together for some memorable family time. Location was great for trips to the ocean, city and all sorts of outdoor activities. Beautifully maintained property!
Great Family Weekend
We rented the home for our family when in Salem for a Willamette graduation. We had a wonderful picnic out on the lawn, relaxing evenings indoors and a great time. We were surprised how much was provided in terms of the kitchen -like a blender, a toaster, etc-not just the basics. It made it easy to just arrive and enjoy.
Very nice and clean with some wonderful little touches. A few goodies in the fridge helped since we arrived late in the evening and didn't have to worry about breakfast. I would definitely recommend it to others and I'd stay here again if the opportunity arose.
