The Fourth Flat, simply put, is amazing. Housed in the second story of the McMinnville Bank Building (1885) above Wednesday Wines, this flat blends the best of historic character with modern convenience. With exposed brick throughout, a formal dining room with a built in wine bar and a huge skylight, walls with floor to ceiling windows, and a fire place in the living room--this Flat truly is The Retreat. The 750 square foot one bedroom apartment has been designed with a luxurious mid century modern feel in shades of gray, and is evocative of an era defined by elegance and romance. The sumptuous king sized bed is the center piece of a gorgeous bedroom, with views of the Willamette Valley Vineyard Wine Center below. Located on the corner of the building, the 4the Flat has views down two streets in Historic Downtown McMinnville.
The 4th Flat underwent a completely 'green' renovation 2010, using such products as bamboo flooring in living areas, marmoleum flooring in the bathroom, Paperstone counters (made from 100% poster consumer recycled paper) in the kitchen and bar, and low VOC paint throughout. Great care was taken to maintain original features however, including windows and woodwork. The finished product is both gorgeous and environmentally conscious. The flat also features local products throughout, ranging from hand made soap in the bathroom, to luxurious linens purchased just down the street and features original works from local artist Sandi Colvin.
We want you to feel welcome when you stay with Third Street Flats, and so we go the extra mile at every turn. Keys to the flats are available downstairs at Wednesday Wines, where you also receive a complimentary wine tasting.
When you get upstairs to your flat, you'll find a complimentary bottle of our own Third Street Flats Pinot Noir and Sea Salt Caramels from Honest Chocolates waiting for you. Guests will also enjoy the honor bar hosted by Abbie & Oliver's Artisan Cheese, room service provided by La Rambla Restaurant & Bar and an in-flat book exchange. Additionally, we've worked out deals and discounts throughout downtown McMinnville, so just tell someone you're staying with Third Street Flats, and good things start to happen--$5 off the drop in rate at Yogi's Studio, a free coffee at Red Fox Bakery, discounts on massage, and the list goes on.
With the perfect location in the heart of Downtown McMinnville, you will enjoy the best food, wine and shopping that the Willamette Valley has to offer, right at your doorstep.

Be sure to stay on Thursdays in the summer, when a local Farmer's Market floods the street below the flats. We also offer a 10% discount on stays of a week or more in all of our flats, so settle in and get comfortable. You'll love staying at Third Street Flats! (We have three other flats available as well which can be viewed on our website).
My name is Erin Stephenson and my husband Travis and are avid travelers who have loved experiencing Europe by staying in apartments. From Poland to Portugal and many places in between, we have rented apartments on a nightly basis and LOVED the independence, and the feeling that we were a part of the community, rather than a mere observer. We decided that we wanted to bring this style of accommodations to downtown McMinnville, and allow tourists in our own community enjoy travel the way we do, through a mixture of independence and hospitality.
We decided to start Third Street Flats to help give tourist a truly local experience--to allow them to live life in Downtown McMinnville like a local, experiencing the best that the Willamette Valley has to offer.
