About Kathryn and Greg Sobotka
Greg and Kathryn are long time residents of Portland. Greg, originally from Oxford, Mississippi, graduated from University of Mississippi and is a realtor with Think Real Estate. Kathryn is from Cleveland, Ohio, graduated from Northwest University and is Senior Event Coordinator Vibrant Table Catering & Events. Because of our mutual love of the Willamette Valley and their passion for Oregon pinot noir, we purchased The Historic Dayton Wine House in 2014 to have a second home in the area we love. We have been coming to Oregon wine country for years and still get excited each time we go, discovering a new winery or exploring backroads to find a new favorite restaurant. When not in wine country we love to travel and enjoy all things outdoors.

Why Kathryn and Greg Sobotka chose Dayton
We feel incredibly fortunate to be the owners and caretakers of this beautiful historic property. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the wine house is a beautiful example of Victorian style architecture. Known as the “Gabriel-Will house” on the historic register, this is a prominent house in Dayton overlooking the town square on a large 1/2 acre lot. It has been a dream come true having a home in wine county and are so excited to be able to share it with our guests. Perfect in size for large groups or with a smaller group, each couple can have their own floor. Please note we get requests for events and large gatherings that we have to turn down all the time as there is a strict rule of only the guests staying at the house can be on the property. If you have any questions please reach out.
What makes this House unique
Dayton is like stepping back in time, and vacationing here feels a world away from the big city. Dayton residents take great pride in their town and hold special events throughout the year that are fun to participate in. The summer concerts in the park on Friday nights are our favorite. Come experience what both we and our previous guests have loved about vacationing at the Historic Dayton Wine House.

Birthday bash weekend!
Fantastic owners who were very considerate and proactive. There was cold weather and they assured that we had the fireplace functioning. The home was truly a welcoming weekend for our family. Great place to come and enjoy the wine country!
Annual Girls weekend
The property was perfect for our group. We loved the high ceilings, vintage home details, comfortable living area, large farm house table and proximity to restaurants around the town square. We appreciated the welcome email and bottle of wine.
A couple of items that would improve the experience: 1) add a window covering to the downstairs bathroom. More privacy from rear yard and neighbors is needed. 2) Lower the mirror in the upper bathroom. It was too high for any of us to see anything but the top of our heads.
However, both those small items can be easily remedied and would not prevent us from renting again.
For a small town, Dayton has a surprising number of restaurants within walking distance. We ate at Mamma Italia Restaurant and they were very accommodating to two in our group who are gluten free. The food and wine was both delicious and reasonably priced.
We had a great time and look forward to our next visit.
Way exceeded expectations! Wow!
We had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday in this remarkable residence! Definitely plan to return in the summer.
Amazing wine house
We stayed in the Dayton wine house for a 50th birthday party. This home exceeded our expectations. The bedding was top notch, the decor was beautiful and the location was perfect for relaxation. I am already planning my next stay in the summer time.
We came with friends for a quick wine weekend and this house was in the perfect location.
Come wine tasting and stay in a historic 1885 Victorian home located in the true heart of wine country. This breathtaking property sits directly on the charming town square of Dayton, Oregon, about 35 miles from Portland. Perfect home base for winery exploring of the Willamette Valley surrounded by hundreds of world class wineries!
From the front door you can walk directly to several great restaurants including The Joel Palmer House, The Barlow Room, Blockhouse Cafe, or Archie's Ice Cream Shoppe and Seufert winery's tasting room.
