About Shannon Thorson

I've lived in McMinnville since 1994. The restoration completed on this home is an example of the design and remodel work that I now enjoy doing as a full-time business.

I have one son who's 12 and enjoy painting, kayaking, hiking, and watching my son's sporting events!

Shannon Thorson purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Shannon Thorson chose Willamette Valley Oregon

I restored this 1912 house in 2004 and love each and every inch of it.

It's a pleasure to preserve it and offer it to new friends.

What makes this bungalow unique

The house is so warm and cozy! I'm sure you'll enjoy going out for food and drink, but you can have an equally enjoyable time just hanging out with a great glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you, we had a wonderful time in McMinnville and the house was one of the big reasons why. Really cute and convenient. We actually spent a lot of time on the front porch just enjoying the sun and taking in the neighborhood. Hope we make it back again sometime.

Great place right downtown.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family a week or two ago. The place was an old house with great charm and most importantly right downtown. Walking distance to everything! It was clean and everything it was supposed to be. The house had about all the things needed. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was two things. One it has one bathroom that was between two bedrooms. There was no way but through a bedroom to get to the bathroom. Not a huge deal but a little odd. The other was the quiet hour rules. I didn't know about this in advance or I probably wouldn't have stayed here but there are quiet hours between 10PM and 9AM. Naturally, my aging mother can't be bothered to follow rules and gets up early and makes lots of noise in the kitchen. It was really a very nice charming home in a great location. Thanks for having us. I would stay here again.

Perfect wine country home

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location and despite its location on a busy street, is very quiet. It was the perfect place for a reunion with a dear friend.

Beautiful home within town

  • 3 of 5

We have passed this house for several years and were excited to have a chance to rent for the weekend in October 2016. It was restored beautiful and good location to main areas in town. We found the main bedroom bed should be replaced as it dips in the middle. We also wanted to note that there is someone in the converted basement area below. We were not aware of this and arrived in the pitch dark to the house at 11pm and this scared us. We never had concern with the person below but there are quiet hours requests for inside the house I am assuming because someone is below. Just needed to mention this so someone else does not arrive to this surprise unaware.

Owner's Response: Katherine, Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. We just replaced the King bed in the master and the new one is delightful! The description for this property clearly states there are two units in the building. The fellow in the basement unit is a single, middle-aged college professor who is very clean-cut and quiet. I assume you found this to be the case? Best wishes. Thank you for your feedback.
