About Sally L Godard
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 Sally L Godard 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 (pop. 33,000) has been perfect. And the countryside is beautiful! One of our friends dubbed our place Low Heaven Farm. It stuck -- and we have to agree that it IS 'heaven on earth.' Three large black walnut trees frame the house, and we added evergreen trees to bring some winter color.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love our country living, while still being close to town. Have a busy day, then return to relax. 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.

Beautiful country setting & Gracious hosts!
Lovely setting, friendly, accommodating hosts. A great place for relaxation or taking day trips to surrounding area. The garden is a bonus.
Great Wine Country Destination - Family Friendly too !!
We took a trip to Willamette Valley with our 21 month old son and couldn't have found a better place to stay than with Ron and Sally's charming apartment. The property itself is conveniently located minutes from downtown McMinnville but is quiet enough to get away. Ron and Sally are perfect hosts and were super communicative through the booking / checkin / checkout process. The unit was very clean, and well appointed - the swingset and tree house were great treats for kids, and the kitchen was well stocked with more than adequate appliances to fix a breakfast or even a full meal.
We would gladly love to be back and heartily recommend to a small family looking to have a quiet getaway.
Spacious, quiet retreat.
Spacious, light-filled residence, far just far enough outside McMinnville to be totally quiet. Comfortable in every way with easy access to Dundee, Carlton and Newberg. Highly recommend.
Oregon Farm living
Beautiful scenery at this country home. Wonderful hosts Sally and Ron provided wonderful advice on restaurants and local happenings. We even took in UFO parade!
We highly recommend this home and can’t wait to return. Thanks
Wonderful! The home has everything we needed. It was comfortable, quiet, with beautiful surroundings. Owners asked for our breakfast preferences, and they provided them and a bottle of wine. We will stay here again the next time we are in town.
Great place in the country.
Spacious, well-equipped and bright large apartment. We would definitely stay here again.
