About the property

Private stuido apartment, queen bed, futon sleeps 2, complete kitchen, deck

Winter is a great time to experience the wonderful state of Oregon. Come and enjoy the beautiful wine country, and when your day is done, come back to relax with breath taking views of the Willamette River.

Our home is right outside the small town of Newberg. We love living in the coutry where you can sit on our deck, drinking your morning coffee or evening wine, while you watch all the water activities as boats drive by. Ready for a quiet walk? Our mile long road is just what you need, where you will only hear a tractor or accasional horse whinny. During the summer one of our favorite treats living here, is waking up to the hot air balloons that pass right by our house. They drift down the river thru this amazing courtyside every weekend, and go where the wind carries them.

The apartment is located above the garage with a private entrance. There is a queen size bed, bathroom, and complete kitchen.

At your arrival, the refrigerator is stocked with bottled water, and most condiments. We also have coffee and tea for you. If you would like to make breakfast, you can collect fresh eggs delivered daily from our pet chickens. ( or I will get them for you! )

We want you to feel comfortable and welcome at our home. There is a deck off the apartment that leads into our backyard. There you will find our family deck whick overlooks the river, the BBQ, and gardens. During the summer you can walk thru the garden, and choose from a variety of berries and fresh vegetables to pick and enjoy. We also have a washer and dryer for you to use, that is located in our garage.

We enjoy meeting our guests, and getting to know them and their stories. Although, since the apartment is separate from our house, there is quite a bit of privacy. Should you need anything, we are always available in the house, or by phone. Of course, our golden retriever, Kona, is always here to Welcome You and share a much loved toy.

*** this apartment is NOT suitable for young children, due to steep stairs.

About Tracy and Jack Bischoff

We have been married for 35 years. We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. We are lucky all of them live in the Portland area so we are able to see them often. We also own 2 produce markets and 2 daycare centers in the area.

It was always our dream to build a house and live in the country. In 2001 we began that dream. We moved the tiny cottage-style house that was by the road, back near the river and added much needed space. Then my husband and boys starting building our home, and it seems like we have always been doing something to improve it since! Whenever friends or family come over, they always say how relaxing and beautiful it is out here. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by God's beauty, and are excited to be able and share it with our guests.

Tracy and Jack Bischoff purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Tracy and Jack Bischoff chose Newberg

Newberg is a small town with a small town feel. Book stores, antique, bakery, and coffee shops line the streets of old town. There are also many attractions available near us. The Vista Hot Air Balloons, Evergreen Air Museum and Waterpark, Spirit Mountain Casino, Woodburn Outlet Mall are all within 30-40 miles. The Oregon coast is just a little further, and an easy day trip from here. Above all, wine tasting is the most popular... and Yamhill county proudly represents the largest amount of wineries and vineyards in Oregon. There are over 80 wineries, and 200 vineyards!

What makes this apartment unique

If you are visiting for a special occasion, please let us know. It could be your birthday, anniversary, retirement, or just celebrating a No Kid weekend. We would love to have a romantic room ready for you with wine and roses. Just contact us to let us know what you would like, we will let you know the additional cost.

Perfect out of the way yet close enough to everything needed!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to land! The balloons really do go overhead while sitting on the deck watching the river go by and having your morning coffee! Clean, tidy, everything you need to set up a homey landing after exploring the Oregon attractions. And Kona is the ultimate greeter! :-)

Privacy and all the comforts of home are waiting when you arrive - nothing was left out - I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Tracy and Jack ~ you have a beautiful property and setting!

Beautiful and relaxing spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Newberg to visit our son at George Fox! The property was perfect for our long weekend and I wish we could have stayed longer. Our view to the water and the fall colors on the trees were breathtaking! We will definitely try to stay here next time we come to visit!

A very nice, very QUIET place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nice. It's clean and away from any sounds of traffic or noise. The yard has humongous black berries (very sweet) and it's quite scenic. We spent most of our time visiting our family but we slept here and enjoyed the peaceful quiet it offers. I highly recommend this apartment if you are planning a trip to scenic Oregon! There is plenty of fresh air and wide open spaces, if you like to hike, there are trails in abundance.
