About Holli Wagner

The Bob House is owned and operated by Mick and Holli Wagner. As long time residents of McMinnville, they love this town and want to share it's bounty with others. Mick is an avid gardener so during the growing seasons, you will be sure to receive fresh vegetables and fruits when you visit. Holli loves to can! So during the winter months you could be surprised with a jar of fruit jam. The Wagner's maintain a large garden and small orchard, called Security Farm (find us on Facebook), at their own home right around the corner from the The Bob House.

Holli Wagner purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying at The Bob House. This house has such a warm happy feel! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for thinking of every accommodation and the little touches; wine, jam, etc. we had gals from all over Oregon and Arizona, so this was the perfect place for us to relax between wine tasting and over eating at local restaurants.

Absolutely Awesome!

With love, Dea and the Gang!

The Bob House is the best place to stay downtown

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely fell in love with Bob House after our stay last month. In February, we came to town and stayed in the Ferris House, and it was wonderful, but on our return trip we had different sleeping needs. After how nice Mick and Holli were, and how great their home was, it seemed like a no-brainer to try them again.

Best decision we made. The Bob House has tons of room to spread out if you have a larger group coming into town. The location was ideal, being just a few minute walk from downtown, but far enough away from 3rd Street to be calm and serene.

I can only imagine how nice the backyard must be to lounge in during the summer, we were met with a steady rain during out trip, but it gave a great vibe to the home.

Bob House was great!

  • 5 of 5

In town for a 100th birthday celebration and The Bob House was perfect for us. It was a block away from the event and easy walking everywhere. Holli was a great host; answering questions immediately and coming over about the TV- partially unplugged! The welcome jam & wine were a delicious treat! The kitchen is so well stocked with multiples of everything, lots of wine glasses and has a great dining area. The front living area is great for visiting with the TV lounge area off the back kitchen. Very nice to have two separate gathering areas. Definitely would recommend The Bob House.

Great Property!

We gathered in McMinnville for thanksgiving holiday -- it was a perfect house -- warm and cozy. The entire family was able to gather and enjoy the holiday. Perfect location, close to downtown's restaurants and local wineries. On our next trip will definitely stay there again.
