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 dogs (golden retriever) Honey, and (chocolate lab) Sadie are 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 Willamette Valley

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.

A charming, lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

I wish we'd been able to meet our hosts, but we ended up coming & going late/early. It's a comfortable and peaceful place to stay. A nice supply of some staples in the bathroom and (though we didn't really use any) the kitchen too. Pretty morning views over the river. Would love to be here when balloons are floating by! We'll happily stay again on a future visit to the Willamette Valley!

Beautiful place, very attentive hosts, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property immensely. The kitchen had more stocked items than we were even expecting and the place was clean and spacious. Being able to look out the back to the beautiful lawn and river below was great. The hosts were very attentive and gracious to our questions. This is a great place for a little get away!

So glad we stayed!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this charming apartment over a hotel and are so glad we did. It had all that we were looking for, which included being in the Newberg area and having the comforts of a home away from home. Owners are friendly and very easy to coordinate with. Would definitely recommend!
