Why Allen and Jill Methven chose Dayton
This is a unique property in that it is surrounded by vineyards and has views of the Valley and the Cascades with no subdivisions in sight. Very private yet close to everything you need. We were looking for property for a few years and then found this perfect location by chance as it was not listed at the time. It was 100% raw land and gave us the challenge and opportunity to create our own home, landscaping, vineyards and Winery. Jill grew up in the country on a horse ranch/farm and Allen loves living on and off the land and large open spaces. As soon as we saw this property we new we found what we were looking for.
What makes this Villa unique
The location of this rolling hills property in the heart of wine country, the beautiful spacious villa, pastoral, mountain and vineyard views, pool, hot tub sauna and the many amenities. Many comment they feel they are in Tuscany and are able to easily relax and take in the local attractions within 5 to 20 minutes. There is no comparable sight in the region as far as the size of the Villa and the tranquil privacy it offers. Leave the property and enjoy Oregon's many wineries and highly rated restaurant scene. Attend a downtown open market with local vendors showcasing their fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, art etc. Come home and BBQ by the pool, enjoying local wines or Oregon Brews and the local fare. Oregon is known for it's amazing array of fresh produce and the berry scene is abundant! The children can safely walk to the blueberry patch and pick while you enjoy the evening by the pool and BBQ. There are fruit trees and fruit available for the picking when in season. You may just want to pick some fresh herbs to cook with from our garden or grab a tomato or two to go along with the fresh herbs. You can also help yourself to the fresh vegetables if they are ready to pick as well. We are only one hour from the Coast and one hour from Portland! Smack dab in the middle of wine country. We won three best of shows in 2014 and 2015 for our wines. We were number 17 out of over 1,000 wines in the Oregon wine awards. Stop by for a free tasting when you stay at the Villa.

Had a delightful 4 days in your beautiful home and enjoyed every minute. We really appreciated the personal tour by Allen of both the house and the winery. And the wine tasting. So many wineries, so little time! Will have to return.
The Berkeley group.
Thank you. It was nice meeting all of you. I would have liked to have spent some time learning about each of you. Interesting group. Travel safely. Allen
Great house in the middle of wine country.
A very comfortable house for a large group. It was in a great location and the views are amazing. We are already planning our next trip to this house!
Thanks for your review. We look forward to seeing you in the future. Cheers Allen
lovely home. great location.
great spot for 4-5 couples. Allen was very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. In the middle of wine country- the house is at the Methven Winery. Great restaurants nearby. All in all, a great experience!
Thanks so much for your kind words. The cleaning ladies were so impressed with how you left our home. They and we have never had it left in such a wonderful state. Thanks so much for choosing our home to enjoy Oregon wine country. You are always welcome. Thanks again Allen
What an amazing house and amazing hosts. Allen and Jill are absolutely great hosts Allen went out of his way to make sure our stay was special. There was plenty of room for six couples to spread out. We had a spectacular stay enjoying a new found togetherness in the spacious, well appointed kitchen; gathering in the great room; the privacy of the bedrooms; and the patios, pool, downstairs games, etc. The wine 101 tour that Allen took us through was one of our highlights of the Trip. All the couples are asking when can make a return trip and stay at the villa again!! Allen & Jill thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality!!
Thank you Scott for the great review. You and any member of your group are certainly welcome to stay again. It was a pleasure meeting you and your guests. I enjoy talking about our wine and our vineyard as you can tell. Thanks again for staying with us. Hope to see you soon.
what a wonderful repeat stay. The house is great, the location is perfect, and the pool is unbeatable. We had a bunch of kids and spent HOURS at the pool each day, with kids and adults enjoying the beautiful weather while staying cool, in a relaxed and serene environment.
One of the highlights of our year for sure.
Thank you again for the kind remarks. Allen
The Methven Villa is grand. Finishes and decor are beautiful while also being comfortable and welcoming. There was plenty of room for five couples to spread out. We had a spectacular stay enjoying a new found togetherness in the spacious, well appointed kitchen; gathering in the great room; the privacy of the bedrooms; and the patios, pool, downstairs games, etc. The tastings at the winery were above and beyond and we gained more knowledge from Allen than I think we had in the last four years. Many thanks to Jill and Allen for making our stay so very great! New North Carolina Friends.
Hello N.C. friends. It was so nice spending time with your group. You made it very easy to be around all of you. I am hoping that you put together a tasting dinner in N.C. Jill and I will bring the wine and share stories. Safe travels my friends Allen
