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!

Great house. Everything was close, owners helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Great house, location, and town. Everything was close, owners helpful. Anything we wanted was within walking distance. House was quiet and cozy, plenty of room for the five adults and visitors dropping by. I'd book again when in McMinnville. Thank you.

Wonderful location for winery visits

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful four days at The Bob House. The kitchen was well equipped, beds very comfortable and the backyard was a cool place to spend the evening. We know Mac well as we grew up there so were appreciative of the short walking distance to town. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5


The owners were great. Very quick with responses and seemed to care about our stay. Great location, very clean and neat, well appointed, plenty of room, comfy beds, had most everything you can use. Minor non issues for us, but the porch badly needs to be sanded and painted, the street was a little bit busy, but not bad on the weekend and the daycare next door wasn't open so no problem there. We only used the top floor, but, the basement bedroom had a light dank smell, the doorway into that bedroom is about 5'10" tall and the ceiling is about 6'5' tall. We didn't need or use it, but for those tall folks who might???

Overall, we had a great time and the house fit our needs perfectly well.

Great House Rental!

  • 4 of 5

Rented The Bob House for a girls weekend. It's a great house, walking distance to everything in town, lots of wine tasting options nearby. Holli was very helpful with some recommendations for local activities, a bottle of wine and home made jam when we checked in. We're hoping to make it an annual event!

Great comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a graduation in McMinnville and stayed at the Bob house two nights. This is a great home with a super well equiped kitchen. We hosted a group after graduation and found everything we needed to cook and serve for a group. The backyard was nice with plenty of seating. We were close enough to downtown to walk to restaurants and shops. The owners were easy to work with and responded quickly to questions that I had. I would stay at this rental again.
