Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Hello! My name is Denise and I am delighted to welcome you to Independence, Oregon and the Fluke House. Raising 3 kids in this circa 1895 historic home and quaint town brought many joys in the last 20 years. I continue to reside in Independence and am excited to open up the Fluke House to guests. I love and continue to develop the yard and gardens. Guests will be invited to take advantage of the outside seating areas of the home to relax and rejuvenate. I love Oregon and enjoy living in the central Willamette Valley with easy access to the coastal areas, mountains, and cities. At home I enjoy knitting, yoga, and trying new recipes. I look forward to sharing my favorite flavors of Oregon with guests.
