Overview

McMinnville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy a change from your fast-paced life. Relax in a quiet, country setting that is close to the vibrant town of McMinnville and the village of Carlton.

Separate entrances, and back deck under large walnut tree to enjoy an outdoor meal. Easy driveway parking next to a shady flower garden.

The refrigerator and pantry are stocked with breakfast foods, coffee, assorted teas for your use. You may also enjoy a complimentary bottle of our local wine.

Beautiful, warm furnishings with bamboo flooring, in large kitchen and living room, complete with books, television, movie library, games, wi-fi, and piano. Queen-sized bed, built-in sink and vanity, chair, CD player, and built-in cabinets and drawers in bedroom.

Nine goats and two alpacas in the pasture will entertain you from the large sun-drenched windows. Can you identify the native birds from the busy feeders? Pick a bouquet of flowers or herbs from the garden for your dinner table. Lounge on the deck to read a book and admire the views. Enjoy a relaxing country walk.

A large tree house and swinging bridge offer an unusual adventure for children and adults. What a great location from which to sip your morning coffee or afternoon wine! You have full access to all the gardens, porches, orchards and views around the apartment and main house. A new large swing set has been popular!

Your hosts, Sally and Ron, are a friendly, well-traveled couple who hope you will feel right at home. (They also respect your privacy.) Check out our reviews! We have many return guests.

The McMinnville area is an hour away from the pleasures of Portland and the thrill of the Pacific Ocean. Hiking, fishing, and wading in the nearby Nestucca River is a pleasure on hot summer days.

Just a 8-10 minute drive to McMinnville's popular Third Street, Thursday Farmer's Market (summer), and Saturday Public Market (all year). McMinnville is home to Linfield College, Evergreen Aviation Museum with IMAX theater and water-park, and excellent restaurants, wine bars, community theater, and boutique & antique shops in the historic old town.

More than a hundred vineyards and wineries surround the region. Check out the new wine scene in nearby Carlton. Also nearby is the Lafayette Antique Mall. You will delight in the local festivals in the surrounding communities throughout the summer.

Keywords: Large, bright, independent apartment attached to owner's country home.

About Sally

Your hosts are Ron and Sally. We've raised our three children here since 1988, and they're now all young adults.

We're not yet retired, but able to do some of our work from home. We're friendly, casual introverts. It has been great to meet a wonderful variety of people from all over the country.

Why Sally chose McMinnville

Sally is a native Oregonian. She lived in Portland during her young adulthood, and hoped to raise the children in a more rural area.

McMinnville, 33,000 po., has been perfect. And the countryside is just plain gorgeous!

One of our friends dubbed our place Low Heaven Farm. It stuck -- and we have to agree that it IS 'heaven on earth.'

What makes this apartment unique

We love our country living, while still being close to town. Sally continues to expand the orchard -- it now has 34 varieties of apples, 8 plums, 5 pears, 4 cherries. Ron relishes his time on the tractor, and he just added 24 solar panels so the apartment's electricity needs are now supplied by solar energy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for another great stay! Enjoyed the garden and tree house. We didn't bring the sun with us this trip, but enjoyed the sun breaks. Will re-schedule our cancelled fishing trip and return to your paradise soon.

Wonderful Treehouse Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the McMinnville apt for one week. It was a wonderful home base for exploring the valley, coast and Portland. We enjoyed the wine, great food, the landscape and good weather.
The apt had everything you could need. A great kitchen, deck, and large bedroom.
Sally and Ron were great hosts.

Amazing Place, Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in late August. What more can I say about this place that the other reviews haven't? The pictures makes it look very nice, but in person it is even nicer and more spacious. They have a guide book with all the info about the area you could ever need. They even asked us for breakfast food wishes and had everything we asked for and more when we arrived! The grounds are very nice, including the tree house and the goats/llamas which are awesome! Maybe a 5 minute drive to downtown, which had several nice restaurants and shops. My only regret was that we were only there for 2 nights. If/when we make it back, we will definitely stay longer.

This is everything one could hope with Large pictures sun-soaking the beautifully appointed condo. A 3 story adult tree house with suspension bridge and numerous patios beacon. As I write the goats are happily bleeting from the backyard. Sally and Ron are wonderful hosts.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the week of July 14 to July 21,2014.
The place was so much more than we had hoped for. The space was just as nice as pictured but the grounds and farm was so much nicer. We felt at home in the secluded large patio area.
Sally and Ron were amazing hosts and make us feel like guests in their home.
They even include wonderful breakfast items with fresh local fruits like marionberries.
This place is perfectly located for wine tasting with stunning vistas, visiting the coast and Portland. We want to go back.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my wife for three nights at the end of May beginning of June and we had an amazing trip. The place was a fantastic value and we couldn't have asked for more. The place was clean, very well kept and well appointed with anything you would need for cooking and relaxing. Most of the time we travel we are always in a rush to get out of the place we're staying because it's cramped and not interesting. Here, we were happy to just take our time and enjoy just being in such a peaceful getaway. When we return to this area we will not even look for anywhere else to stay, we will be returning here.

Beautiful Rural Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 15 month old son and I stayed at this beautiful apartment in McMinnville. We had a wonderful experience! Our son loved swinging on the swing set, sitting in the tree house, and visiting with the goats. The owners also provided us with a Pack n'Play, high chair, toys, and books for our son. This made our trip much easier! We enjoyed all of the breakfast items that were provided exactly as requested, The apartment is very convienently located close to McMinnville but still a very remote and country feel. Our son's favorite part was watching all of the birds eat from the feeders right outside the main windows. It was a wonderful trip and we look forward to returning.
