FERN HILL LODGE-LUXURY LOG RETREAT ON 25 ACRES IN WILLAMETTE VALLEY WINE COUNTRY

Dallas Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5,300 sq. ft., 6 bedroom, 4 bath log home on 25 acres with fishing pond & views

Fern Hill Lodge is perfect for family gatherings and retreats. The themed rooms, rustic decor, gourmet kitchen and theater room offer something for everyone. There are 3 levels with beds for up to 20 people. The main level of the house is wheelchair accessible with 3ft doors throughout the whole house and a long outdoor sloped pathway to the downstairs rooms.

For relaxation, take a quick walk down to the dock at the one acre fishing pond and catch bass, blue gill and crappie (be sure to release them, too!). Or take a stroll through the seven acre forest on the other side of the fishing pond. The trees will refresh your spirit and energize your body. It's also relaxing to watch the goldfish swimming around in the smaller pond in front of the house.

Or you might like to watch the sunrise on the 700 square foot covered slate deck along the southeast side of the house overlooking the fishing pond. In the evenings you can build a fire and roast marshmallows in the fire pit or experience a movie in the theater room that will seat 18. Be sure to bring your favorite flicks!

Bedrooms: the Master Suite has 2 queen beds, walk-in closet, access to the deck outside and 46 inch flat screen TV with satellite service that can swivel to be viewed from the jetted tub. We call the big walk-in slate shower 'the Cave.' You'll love the massaging effect the smooth river rock floor has on your feet. The room has a heated slate floor and double granite vanity with raised copper sinks and waterfall faucets.

The Parlor bedroom is also on the main floor. It is the feminine counterpoint to the rest of the house with quilts, needlework & frillery. It has a king bed and uses the main floor guest bath with tub/shower combo, heated slate floor and raised copper sink with waterfall faucet.

The Loft sports a full size Murphy bed, game table, reading nook with sofa, games, air hockey and foosball.

Through the Loft is the Nest, a large room with two sets of XL twin beds usable as 4 twins or 2 kings. It also has a couch and flat-screen TV with satellite and Wii game console. There are some games available but feel free to bring your own.

Downstairs is the Fishing Room with a king bed and its own private bath with granite vanity and tub/shower combo. It has an outside door leading to the covered patio for early morning coffee.

Also downstairs are the Hunting and Cowboy rooms. The Hunting Room has a king bed and also opens out onto the patio. The Cowboy Room has a queen bed and a set of log bunk beds. It does not open to the outside, perfect for children. These two rooms share a bath with granite vanity and tub/shower combo.

The theater room seats 14 in genuine theater chairs and another 4 on small couches. With its 10 foot screen, Blu-ray/DVD player, VHS player, satellite TV, HDMI hook-up for computers and 7.1 surround sound, it's the perfect setup for movie watching or presentations. Complete with popcorn machine & wet bar area with refrigerator and microwave.

The gourmet kitchen includes a six-burner Capital gas range with oven, an electric wall oven, warming drawer, dishwasher, TWO refrigerators, Advantium microwave oven, Kuerig coffee maker (bring your K-cups) plus a regular coffee maker, cherry cabinets, granite counters, two copper farmhouse sinks, handmade copper hood, pantry, dishes and glassware for 20, two electric griddles, two waffle irons, a rice cooker and a full array of cooking utensils and small appliances.

You'll never want to leave the Great Room with its 25' ceiling, huge log trestle, rustic decor, comfortable leather couches with built-in recliners, and 60 inch flat screen TV with satellite service and Blu-ray player. The room has three levels of lighting: ambient ceiling lights for TV viewing, fan lights for socializing, and reading lamps for, well, for reading. It also has a massive real river rock gas fireplace for chilly evenings.

The garage is equipped for exercising with treadmill, rower and weight machine. A ping pong table makes for fun tournaments!

Fern Hill Lodge is bound to become your favorite destination for family gatherings and church and company retreats. You will surely enjoy Oregon's country atmosphere!

About Polly McCrea

Polly and her late husband Jerry fulfilled a life-long dream of building a log lodge in the country. It was a fun experience with all their neighbors and friends donning hard hats, steel-tipped boots and tool belts to help with the log-setting. Jerry & Polly hand-crafted many of the features in the home like the genuine elk antler chandelier, the massive barn plank front door, the pounded copper hood and the large braided wool rug in the great room made from old articles of clothing. The venue for much entertaining in the past few years, Polly now wants to share this gorgeous home with the world. She would love to meet you and answer any questions you might have about the house and property.

Polly McCrea purchased this lodge in 2008

Why Polly McCrea chose Dallas

In 1994 Jerry & Polly started searching for property away from the hustle & bustle of the big city of Portland. Their search kept widening until they came upon 160 acres nestled in the hills between Dallas & Monmouth. It was exactly what they had been searching for. Through the years they have sold many 5 acre home sites and created the friendly community of Fern Hill. You might meet some of them walking down the road or out for a stroll down to the fishing pond which is shared with all the neighbors. Jerry & Polly, their friends and family, personally planted most of the 22,000 trees on the property. In addition to these 'younger' trees are numerous majestic 300+ year old oaks.

Family reunion at Fern Hill Lodge

  • 5 of 5
Polly’s Fern Hill Lodge, situated in the tranquil, rolling hills east of Salem, is a perfect place for a big family retreat or reunion. It easily accommodated our group of 18 people and gave us a place for a happy and comfortable reunion. The lodge is beautifully hand- crafted with a spacious living room, an inviting, covered porch and a well equipped kitchen. It is surrounded by acres of lawn, meadow and forest which are great place for kids to play. The home theater was a perfect venue for sharing family pictures and movies and the exercise room with a ping-pong table was a good place for younger ones to burn off energy. Polly was a gracious, accommodating host and attentive to all our needs. In all respects, we were delighted with Fern Hill Lodge and highly recommend it to others.

Wonderful family reunion setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family reunion experience at Fern Hill Lodge. It felt spacious even for our group of nearly 20. We enjoyed rowing boats and canoes on the pond, watching movies and sports in the theater, playing games, taking in the view from the back patio/deck, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, hiking and more. The kitchen was beautiful, and we also took advantage of the terrific barbeque. The setting was beautiful, and the whole experience felt like a special escape. The homeowner was outstanding; everything was terrific. We highly recommend Fern Hill Lodge, and look forward to visiting there again.

One Lucky Family

  • 5 of 5
What can we say about Fern Hill Lodge? It was a FABULOUS week!! The pictures of this lodge can not do it justice. The owners have truly created a work of devotion and love. The lodge is stunning, the details in construction are amazing, the decor is just as it should be. We found that even our large, active family of 17 never felt "on top of each other" and everyone was amazed at the amount of privacy with so many together. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen is a dream with everything clearly labeled so you never have to spend time searching for things, the loft and garage great for games and exercise, the pond a favorite with all ages as the fish bite on virtually every cast, and the theater room was as advertised. Overall we could not find a down side. We worried being out in the country may make it difficult to find enough to do...don't worry. There is more than enough and it is within 30-60 minutes of the beaches, Salem, Portland and other state parks. We just feel fortunate to have spent this week together at this truly fun, amazing lodge. Thanks to Polly and her son.

Wonderful Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing! Eight of us stayed here to go wine tasting for a girls' weekend before my wedding. We had a blast! None of us wanted to leave. The grounds are beautiful, as is the house. The beds were comfortable. Everything was really clean too! We loved the movie theater! We stayed up far to late watching movies each night. The kitchen is incredible! Polly was super accommodating too. All of us want to make this an annual trip!

Thanks so much!

Warm and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5
Every year our family and friends of 18 get together for a retreat. This only being our second year, has set the bar for places to choose in the future. Pictures do not do this place justice for its welcoming and open space. The rooms are wonderful and very comfortable to sleep in. We spent much time on the main balcony looking over the hill onto the lake and enjoying the sunsets. The guys spent many hours in the theater watching digital movies from our usb drives and playing video games from our xbox and playstation. The projection screen and stadium seats were a real treat. Again, the pictures don't to the size justice when it comes to the theater. The screen is huge!
Polly, the owner was very sweet and willing to accommodate our family in whatever way she could.
The fire pit was a treat and we even made an extended slip in side for the hill in the backyard. (a small one was already provided) The three kids we had and the grown ups enjoyed everything together. Very kid friendly.
The fully equipped kitchen and double fridge was perfect and more than applicable.
We cant say enough about our stay and thank Polly and her family for building and sharing such a wonderful home with us. It feels like a home away from home.

Remarkable!

  • 5 of 5
I had been looking for a place for my immediate and extended family to stay under one roof to attend and celebrate my daughter's graduation from OSU in Corvallis (30 mins away). I ran across this gem just a week before our trip. The descriptions and photos of the Lodge were accurate and just can not capture the warmth, detail and beauty of this Lodge and property. Polly was extremely gracious as a host and even came and rectified the Wi-Fi for us in the evening so we could Skype our older daughter who lives abroad. The attention to detail and full amenities was more than expected. Although we spent most of our time at the Lodge or in Corvallis, we did get a chance to visit a few wineries close by. Great place for a group wine tasting home base for a weekend!
I would recommend this Lodge to anyone considering it. Thanks again Polly for helping make our daughter's graduation special.
