About Dan Smith
Dan Smith is the owner of Sweet Cheeks Winery and a few other properties in the Crow Valley. In 1976 Dan escaped the concrete and traffic of LA County. Dan arrived with that wide eyed appreciation of the beauty and diversity Oregon has to offer. He has devoted the last 36 years planting and nurturing his vineyards, building a successful winery and refurbishing several homes in the valley.
Dan Smith purchased this Farmhouse in 1984
Why Dan Smith chose Lane County
This property was part of the original McCulloch Homestead that spread over 100 acres. The old McCulloch Cemetery is about 1/4 mile south of the estate. The home was built in 1904 and a picture in the sunroom of the farmhouse shows the McCulloch family and the original version of the house. There is an orchard the family planted visible from the westside deck of the house. Dan has remodeled the 'Farmhouse' to luxury status with a level of comfort that is felt when you walk through the door. When asked about what attracted Dan to this area, he said honestly it was the Ch'i of the valley that left an impression on his soul. Dan would like others to experience the peace and beauty embedded in this land.

Beautiful home in Willamette wine country.
We stayed over Thanksgiving and the home was perfect for the five of us-large well-appointed kitchen with room to spread out. Terrific views, many windows. Beds/baths roomy/modern. We had a great stay. 25 minutes to both airport and DT Eugene.
Nice spacious rooms, but needed some more attention to the details. Only one hair dryer in house yet bedrooms and baths on both the first and second floor. Found two chipped glasses in the cupboard. Issue with keys when we first arrived which was taken care of with first call. We were in wine country had thought there might be some complimentary tasting tickets left or at least a bottle of the wine associated with the Farmhouse. The washer and dryer was great.
My fiancé and I rented the farmhouse for our wedding party, and it was absolutely perfect! The house is gorgeous and spacious, perfect to spend the day getting ready for a wedding! I would highly recommend staying here!
Thank you, we are so pleased you found the Farmhouse a joy. It is the perfect location for wedding parties and families attending events at Sweet Cheeks Winery and the other local winery's in the area. We appreciate your positive feedback
Beautiful property and setting!
Beautiful home in a lovely valley near Eugene. The wineries, vineyards and scenery are gorgeous, as was the home. Perfect for a wine tasting or relaxing on the deck; serene and peaceful. Well appointed kitchen, beautiful master suite and plenty of bathrooms. Highly recommend!
So happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the kind words
We were in Eugene for the NCAA Track and Field Championships and found the Farmhouse the perfect place to stay! It was a 15-20 minute drive to Hayward Field - but it was worth it. The place was very serene with lots of wildlife in the area. We had 3 couples and 1 teen and had more than enough space. And if someone wanted a little "alone time," there was space for that as well. Everything was in perfect working order but could have used a little mowing and weed eating. Of course - with all the rain in the PNW - it would be difficult to stay on top of! We would definitely stay here again!
The only complaint we would have is the lack of means of communicating if you have more than family staying there. Due to the lack of cell service - we weren't able to let anyone know when we would or wouldn't be arriving. The landline phone would not allow any incoming calls so that didn't help out much. If internet service were available - that would at least allow texting. It wasn't a huge issue - but would have been an added plus!
Happy you enjoyed the serenity that is this home. Yes, 2017 has been a wet one and it has been a challenge to keep up on the grass in the fields. We are blessed to have all the rain this year :). The landline telephone works for outgoing local and incoming calls. The number is provided in the rental information before arrival and family can contact you during your stay.
My family and I rented the Farmhouse to attend a wedding. We had an awesome time. The accommodations were perfect. We came into a nice cool home as it was a searing 87 out. It was spacious and we did not care about tv as we visited and played games. Kitchen had everything we needed. Tami was friendly and a pleasure to work with we would definitely stay there again.
