A backyard retreat!

  • 4 of 5

The home was comfortable and was really quite larger than it looked. The favorite was the backyard. It was so inviting to include the herbs and tomato garden. We so enjoyed relaxing out there.

Great location, easy arrival, easy exit to pretty much everything we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, modern appliances, the bed I used was a little too bouncy for my taste, but comfy. Back yard is terrific!

Fabulous cottage in lovely neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage with the most amazing backyard! Loved sitting out with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening listening to the birds. Just gorgeous garden!! And the fire pit is awesome for s'mores! We have stayed at several local places during our move and this was by far our favorite. Close enough to walk downtown and awesome neighborhood with super friendly people. This home is beautifully appointed and the owners are incredibly helpful and attentive! Make this sweet home your spot for your next visit to wine country!

About Chalet Gris

We are long-time McMinnville residents -- in fact, a local street is named for the mother of one of us. Our interests include beer-making, gardening and cooking. We are fans of The Linfield Wildcats, Trail Blazers and Oregon State Beavers. As we remodeled the house, we focused on comfort and functionality -- they're important to us and we think our guests will find that they can kick back and relax in this perfect "home away from home" in a friendly neighborhood.

Chalet Gris purchased this house in 2015

Why Chalet Gris chose McMinnville

Anyone who loves domestic tranquility will immediately see what drew us to this property. Not only is it spacious enough to accommodate three couples, it has a lovely patio and garden area to bask in the mild Yamhill Valley weather (which contributes to the wonderful Yamhill Valley wines!). The opportunity to create a quiet family/reading room that can be closed off from any bustle in the main part of the house was also something that attracted us. We think of this room as the Sanctuary, and purposefully left the TV out of it! McMinnville is an inviting town, and strolling the main streets (less than a mile from the house), dropping into wine tasting rooms or bookstores (or a knitter's paradise at a yarn shop) is a favorite activity for members of our extended family.

What makes this house unique

When you make Chalet Gris your base of operations, you'll be able to enjoy its proximity to a variety of attractions. When you're home, the indoor/outdoor convenience of food preparation and eating is enhanced by the sliding glass door from the kitchen to the covered deck and patio, allowing the smooth flow of traffic from stove to plate. After a day of exploring or wine tasting, guests can have time to themselves in the peaceful garden, the comfortable living area, or the quiet Sanctuary. Inquire about possible 1 night stays when needed.
