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.

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.

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.

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.'

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.

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.

COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as described and then some. The very large and well stocked kitchen, expansive windows, and gorgeous natural light were wonderful. The blooming forsythia right outside the window was brilliant and filled with cheerful bird activity. We plan on returning when the majestic black walnut tree is fully leafed out. And the tree house!!! What a structure. The whole property is well cared and a delight for plant lovers. Sally and Ron were gracious hosts, made us feel very welcome in introducing us to the features of the apartment, providing a lovely bottle of wine and breakfast items just as requested. We've done many VRBO rentals and this one exceeded expectations. I'm always interested to see the book and CD collections and it was a treat to find both contained several favorites...well beyond the generic pop titles. We enjoyed Nick's Italian Cafe, Bistro Maison, a nice walk/hike in Millers Woods, and wandering the shops on Third St.

This was our second stay, and we couldn't have asked for nicer accommodations, hosts or memories! Such a beautiful view, and we loved making our own meals in the kitchen! Thank you Sally and Ron!

EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATIONS WITH PRIME WINE COUNTRY LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
For a first time visit to the McMinnville wine country, this property could not have been any better! We brought our one and a half year-old daughter with us and she absolutely loved playing with the goats and in the swing and on the tree house.

The hospitality extended to us by the owners was wonderful. They made us feel extremely welcome and even provided such foods as we requested to make our stay even easier. Additionally, the views from the kitchen/living room areas are stunning as they look out to the farm and Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson beyond. The property is located just outside of McMinnville so as to feel out in the country but close enough to town for all of your shopping needs. It is also a short, five minute drive to Carlton. It's perfectly situated for a week of winery visits, but also within an hour and a half to the coast.

Basically, we can't say enough good things about the property and we will definitely be visiting again very soon!

Thank you very much!

COZY COUNTRY COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
We rang in the New Year at Ron and Sally's delightful cottage in the McMinnville countryside. Our kids had so much fun playing in the treehouse, on the swings, and with the animals. The grownups enjoyed cooking in the perfectly-appointed kitchen. From the gourmet coffee to the generous breakfast food supply to the delicious bottle of wine, we didn't want for a thing. We were all comfortable and spoiled by the excellent linens, sparkling bathroom, and on-site laundry. Our only complaint? We didn't want to leave! Farewell--we'll be back for sure!
