About Sue Brandt

Stuart and Sue live on the property. We like to travel, more the outdoor/camp tourists than city tourists, and need to get out and do more of it!!

Stuart was born and raised in McMinnville and works locally as a landscaper. When he's not working for money,he's doing yoga, working on our property, reading a book or magazine, helping friends work on their property or involved in local volunteer activities.

Sue has lived in Yamhill County for the last 30 years, born and raised in the Midwest. She works in McMinnville. When she's not working, she's taking walks with girlfriends, going to the occasional yoga class with Stuart and also volunteers.

Sue Brandt purchased this house in 1999

Why Sue Brandt chose Sheridan

Stuart bought this property back in the 1980's. It was a back to the land sort of era and he had massive gardens and assorted pet farm animals. The property is geared for wildlife habitat with extensive planting of native plants and habitat restoration. It is quiet, beautiful, just enough room to not have to see what the neighbors are up to, and we love the view of Mt. Hood when we're driving into McMinnville and the coast range and sunsets driving home.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, beautiful break from the day to day hustle of things. Consider the lack of internet access a welcome break.

3rd times a charm

  • 5 of 5

Our. 3rd trip to Wilammette Valley and as usual, it was. AMAZING! The house is in the perfect location to all the wineries. The weather and scenery were spectacular. We brought my. Mom this year, who absolutely fell in love. Stuart and Sue, our hosts are always a pleasure. Swoosh the cat was there to enterrtain us on the porch at night. It's the perfect spot to kick back and appreciate life.

Country Charmer

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we were looking for. Clean, quite, off the beaten path but not too far. Surrounded by wineries it’s a wonderful place for a long weekend or longer.

Home had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Well stocked kitchen and clean.

Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a beautiful location. It is close to town and great wineries. The house itself had everything we needed to stay with our family. The home is stocked with great toys and games. They also had high chairs and other baby gear available for our use. The owners were so friendly and helpful and even set up an extra bed for our toddler. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation.

Nice clean house & property

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen is well equipped! House is clean and cozy. Master bedroom bed is comfortable. The home has lots of games and a good variety of movies. Comfortable couch and recliner chair in the family room. No cable available but we did not care. Movies were great! Hope you we can return someday! The house is surrounded by a well manicured yard. Only thing I missed was a blow dryer but I am sure I could have requested one.

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfectly located for us and had everything we needed from toys for the kiddos, a pack and play, highchair to everything we needed in the kitchen. The owners were very available and friendly. Our kids loved running around the property and seeing the cat and chickens. I would highly recommend this place!

Incredibly beautiful area with rolling hills and vineyards. Wineries open year round for wine tasting, sitting outside in the summer, slowly working your way through a flight of wines as you watch hawks soar is just the ticket to deep relaxation and contentment. Each small town in Yamhill County seems to have a local history museum with passionate, knowledgeable locals who have the whole afternoon to answer any and all your questions. McMinnville is packed with award winning restaurants like Thistle to Community Plate for delicious breakfast or lunch and monthly, oh-so-delicious, chefs dinners. There are 11 county parks, most located along small streams and kids can make a day of tangleboxing, a summer outdoor treasure hunt. There are city parks with special features and skate parks. Farmers markets are in McMinnville throughout the summer on Thursdays and Saturdays. Lots of specialty shops for clothing, art and trinkets. All year round there are art festivals, food festivals, UFO festival (look it up!), quilt shows, the community is bursting with creative people. Your hosts are a great resource for recommendations and updates on things to do.
