Guestbook comments from the owner
By the second day our little grandson was feeling right at home and especially loved the books and cabinet doors in the kitchen. We all felt comfortable whether gathering in the living room, preparing meals in the kitchen or eating them in the dining room. The house was very clean (a real plus) and well-equipped. We enjoyed the views of the garden from the inside and hope to be there again sometime to fully enjoy your beautiful landscaping. Thank you for providing such a nice home away from home.

Hi We are Joanie and Dean. We are the owners and managers of the WaterHouse. We both fell in love with our WaterHouse the first time we stepped in the front door! We felt so relaxed and comfortable. We hope you get the same feeling the first time you come in, you will want to come back again and again as we do!

Joanie and Dean purchased this cottage in 2006

We chose to buy a vacation house in the City. It's only about 5 miles from where we live! We are both retired, and keep busy with our small seasonal plant nursery.Here we grow our flowers and plants for the WaterHouse. We also keep a few horses for the grandchildren at our house/nursery/farm! So you see, getting too far away takes a lot of work! We find it nice to drive to town, spend the night or two, hang out and relax, but close enough to drive home and care of the animals and come back!

The setting was as described - the outdoor sitting spaces were wonderful, the kitchen was spacious and well equipped, beds were comfortable, everything was clean. The location was perfect for our 20+ family gathering for a 90th birthday. Great to have the Mill Race Stream as part of the environment.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Hosts are great. so much so we stayed a second time. We stayed in Nov 2012, now aug 2013. Nothing was too much trouble. The washing machine had an issue and the hosts were onto it straightaway.

They were very accommodating with your daughters- 2.5yo and newborn.

Would highly recommend staying there.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL VISIT, THANK YOU,

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful, restful, convenient home to stay in. We enjoyed our stay so much we extended one day. The house has all that one needs. The kitchen was well equipped., he beds were comfortable. The garden, patio and screened porch is where we ate spent most of time. We were able to walk to "Word of Mouth" for breakfast. The location is convenient to downtown Salem and access to freeways. We were in Salem to attend a wedding at the Rogue Farm Hopyard in Independece, a wedding site, but also a great tourist location.It would be a great place for a day trip. Watch the hops growing and taste many kinds of beers.

MILL RACE STREAM CRAFTSMAN HOME

  • 5 of 5
We attend the OSU graduation and did not want to pay the high cost of hotels/motels in Corvallis. We decided to stay in Salem an easy 30 minute drive to OSU. We had 7 people staying at the home and it exceeded our expecations. The owners were very nice and were there to meet us and give us an overview of their property. Close to resturants (we didn't use them since we were in Corvallis) and close to stores ie. Walmart.
