The Secret Garden is a farm house built circa 1915, hidden behind a kiwi and grape arbor. This two story house has all the comforts of modern living as well as country style. As a Certified Wildlife Habitat, there are birds of all kinds living in the trees and bushes creating wonderful sounds to the environment. With the Fish House (a large outdoor playroom) you can sit in the garden house and enjoy the nature.
With seasonal food that flourishes from May to November you can share in the bounty during your visit. The property has 60 year old apple trees, a 75+ year old Rainer Cherry, Bing Cherry, Asian and Bartlett pears, strawberries, 2 figs, blueberries, honey berries, old red table, Muscat, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Concord grapes, hazelnuts, peaches, nectarines, plums, hops, 2 kinds of kiwis (Kiwi AND grape kiwis) and quince trees you can get lost in the nature. We have chickens that we care for on the property, and you are welcome to all the fruits of their labor. We also maintain a working vegetable garden to share with our guests, friends, family and the community. All of this is great fun for the kids too.
4 walk-able blocks to the historic downtown. This house has all the conveniences needed; cable, Internet, microwave, washer/dryer and all the amenities needed for modern comfort.
We provide key-less entry to the property, so you can have all or no interactions you want from us. We live adjacent to the property and we are here when you need us.
What can be said about McMinnville? All the art, the wine, the antiques, the food! All within a 10 block radius! Venture out of town, and you are ten miles from farmers markets, a casino, a water park and an amazing air museum, and the Oregon coast.
