About Terry or Cindy Forney

Our names are Terry & Cindy and our son's name is Jonathan (15). We have lived in this area for almost 18 years. We moved here from Colorado where we met and decided to move to Oregon to pursue a job opportunity. We enjoy the outdoors, including hunting, fishing, crabbing, the Oregon Beaches and the OSU Beaver sports, especially football and baseball!

Terry or Cindy Forney purchased this Studio in 2000

Why Terry or Cindy Forney chose Benton County

We chose this property simply because of its highly desirable Northern Corvallis country side where we are far enough out to enjoy a quiet area with wildlife, more space and probably the most unique 3.3 acre parcel you will find in the area! We love Corvallis because of its diversity, OSU and HP. Corvallis seems to hold a very highly educated population! :-)

What makes this Studio unique

We really think you will enjoy our vacation rental and our unique property. We have enjoyed meeting previous tenants and answering questions about what the area has to offer. You will enjoy the views and the comfort of our vacation rental. You will enjoy the most unique piece of property in Corvallis! We provide two complimentary bakery items, a start for coffee & cream, dish and laundry detergent for our guests.

                                                            Very nice

                                                            Eric M.Dallas, TX

                                                            This is a very nice apartment above garage in a wooded setting. If you're looking for something a bit different than a hotel but for same price range, this is the place. It's essentially a loft style apartment perfect for single traveler's or a couple. Comes with functional kitchen (stove is a toaster oven) including dishwasher and what I really like was washer/dryer included. It's just outside of Corvallis, no more than 10 minute drive. Owners are very easy to work with and you get a lot of great info through Home Away app.

                                                            Hi Eric,

                                                            Thank you for taking the time to complete a review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We hope you enjoyed Corvallis and would welcome your return to our Studio in the future.

                                                            I hope you have a very Happy NewYear!!



                                                            Beautiful setting & area; very comfortable accomodations; wonderful hosts!

                                                            Terry & Cindy, our hosts, were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed 5 days during the total eclipse & were enchanted with the event, and also the surroundings. We enjoyed several hikes in the area. Corvallis is a beautiful city. It was a magical vacation in every way!!!

                                                            Hi Bob,

                                                            We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are so glad the weather was fantastic for the "magical" total eclipse! We really enjoyed visiting with you and your lovely wife and hope you have found other reasons to come back and visit Corvallis, we would definitely love to be your host again!

                                                            Have a fantastic day!

                                                            The studio away but close to Corvallis

                                                            Marleen W.

                                                            The house is in the north part of Corvallis, in the hills. The space takes up all of the upper level of a recently built three car garage. The entrance is separate from the house. Everything you need to cook and relax is provided. It was the perfect base for my husband and I to explore the natural beauty of the area. Since the space was upstairs, it was nice to have air conditioning. Much nicer than staying in a hotel. We were happy. The owners are lovely, gracious people. They are wonderful hosts who made us feel welcome. We do like to read so another lamp by the chair or bed would have been nice.

                                                            Hi Marleen,

                                                            We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our studio and that the AC was adequate for the hot days we had while you were staying with us. Thank you very much for your recommendation on adding another lamp, that's a great idea! we encourage our guests to let us know of their recommendations, without their input our places wouldn't be ranked a 5 star stay! :-)

                                                            Have a great day and thank you for choosing us!

                                                            Very cozy and clean

                                                            Julie R.

                                                            The property is beautiful. The studio apartment is well done... nice finishes and amenities. The gardens are lovely and the bed is very comfortable. The owners are very easy to work with. Would love to have another visit and more time in this cozy spot!

                                                            Hi Julie,

                                                            Thank you for your review and we too hope you will come back and enjoy our place again soon. It was a pleasure talking sports with you and we wish your boys the best of luck in Football and Baseball.

                                                            Have a great Day!


                                                            Love, Love, Love

                                                            My daughter had a volleyball tournament in Corvallis and places were filling up. Everything that I could afford seemed a little too sketchy for me and my girl. I feel soooo fortunate that we came across this listing. Terry and Cindy were true lifesavers. When traveling with my daughter I need to know we are good and safe. This place was that and so much more. As soon as we got out of the car and took a breath of that fresh air we were both like, yep.. this is the place. We absolutely loved it. It was super cozy and had everything we needed. Communication was spot on. Both Terry and Cindy made us feel welcome and were so very helpful. And to top it off we saw some beautiful birds and deer the day we left. This place was like home away from home. Only better! I think I might move here. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little piece of heaven.

We promise to make your next stay as good or better than the last. Thank you so much for taking the time to complete a review, it really means allot to us! Have a great day!

                                                            Perfect stay for OSU Family Weekend

                                                            The Old ROck Quarry Studio is located in perfect location for OSU parents weekend. Easy to get there. The place is cleaned and well appointed. The skylights keep the studio bright and airy. Probably need better Velcro for the shades at night and early morning. Other than that we highly recommend the place.

                                                            Corvallis Oregon is Home of the PAC-12 Oregon State Beavers! It's a very cool town, Population of 58,000 and we get to enjoy big time sports! Our property is about 1/2 mile north of city limits so close enough for convenience but far enough away to enjoy country living. Our home's neighborhood is homes with an average of 2 acre parcels. We have 3.25 acres of an old rock quarry from back in the 1930's. You will enjoy a natural setting and almost guarantee you will see deer on our property. We have plenty of blackberries in the late summer months and our property host a family of foxes every year! We live very close to mountain hiking/biking trails that has an incredible scenery. And don't forget the wine tasting or the Rogue Hop Yard all in the Williamette Valley!
