"We couldn't have asked for a better location to visit the beautiful Willamette Valley! The house sits in a great spot and feels like you are in your own world up there but still close to everything. The house itself was great. It really does have everything you need and the owners were great to work with! We were very comfortable and I would stay here again as well as definitely recommend to others. It was just my husband and myself for 3 nights (6 nights in the area but 3 nights at this property) and we were in and out a lot so we didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked taking advantage of this great property. We really would have liked to enjoy the great fire pit and the beautiful area at the top of the hill, but we did spend time in the evenings and in the mornings on the deck taking in the beautiful views! As far as location, it really is right in the middle of everywhere you want to go especially if you are there as we were to visit the awesome wineries in the area. We have been to Napa many times but I have to say the Willamette Valley is just as beautiful, maybe even more so. We spent one day at Cannon Beach on the coast - a drive I highly recommend (eat at the Wayfarer!) - and another day driving to the Columbia River Gorge and the beautiful falls. Wow there really is no bad or boring drive in the state, just more beautiful scenery everywhere you go. Area restaurants we liked, Babica Hen, for breakfast and lunch especially. Ruddick/Wood Grill, Jory at the Allison Inn and Tina's. Red Hills Market is great for sandwiches and snacks- we stopped in there a lot! Oh the wineries - Some favorites -Archery Summit, Domaine Serene, Sotor, Lange, Alexana and a little further away towards Salem I recommend Illahe, Cristom and St. Innocent. While in this area I highly suggest, if you are a cheese lover, a visit to the Willamette Valley Cheese Co. You can taste everything before you buy -and the list is long. Crazy good. We froze what we bought, packed it in our suitcases the morning of the flight and by the time we got home everything was still good and cold to go back in the fridge. Such a wonderful trip, we can't wait to visit again! Thank you Robert and Paula for sharing your beautiful home!"
