Allen and Jill Methven purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Allen and Jill Methven chose Dayton
This is a unique property in that it is surrounded by vineyards and has views of the Valley and the Cascades with no subdivisions in sight. Very private yet close to everything you need. We were looking for property for a few years and then found this perfect location by chance as it was not listed at the time. It was 100% raw land and gave us the challenge and opportunity to create our own home, landscaping, vineyards and Winery. Jill grew up in the country on a horse ranch/farm and Allen loves living on and off the land and large open spaces. As soon as we saw this property we new we found what we were looking for.
What makes this Villa unique
The location of this rolling hills property in the heart of wine country, the beautiful spacious villa, pastoral, mountain and vineyard views, pool, hot tub sauna and the many amenities. Many comment they feel they are in Tuscany and are able to easily relax and take in the local attractions within 5 to 20 minutes. There is no comparable sight in the region as far as the size of the Villa and the tranquil privacy it offers. Leave the property and enjoy Oregon's many wineries and highly rated restaurant scene. Attend a downtown open market with local vendors showcasing their fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, art etc. Come home and BBQ by the pool, enjoying local wines or Oregon Brews and the local fare. Oregon is known for it's amazing array of fresh produce and the berry scene is abundant! The children can safely walk to the blueberry patch and pick while you enjoy the evening by the pool and BBQ. There are fruit trees and fruit available for the picking when in season. You may just want to pick some fresh herbs to cook with from our garden or grab a tomato or two to go along with the fresh herbs. You can also help yourself to the fresh vegetables if they are ready to pick as well. We are only one hour from the Coast and one hour from Portland! Smack dab in the middle of wine country. We won three best of shows in 2014 and 2015 for our wines. We were number 17 out of over 1,000 wines in the Oregon wine awards. Stop by for a free tasting when you stay at the Villa.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The Methven's home is gorgeous. A wonderful place to stay with a group while tooling around Oregon wine country. They are highly communicative, all the how tos were nicely organized in a book, and the house and property was even more stunning than in the pictures. You must go down the hill to the Methven Winery during your stay, do a tasting there, and buy a few bottles!
We're definitely coming back to the Methven's for future stays with friends & family.
Thank you so much for having us!
Thank you. Glad that you enjoyed our home as much as we do. Come back anytime 👌
Willamette wine tour
The house is perfect for touring the Willamette Valley. We enjoyed the large deck off the kitchen area. The house and each individual area are large. Kitchen is very well equipped. The landscaping is beautiful!
Thank you for your review. We were sorry not to be in town to meet you. I am glad Ken was there to help out. Safe travels home. Allen and Jill
Great Villa, world class amenities, if you can't have fun here you should probably ask yourself why!
Perfect for a milestone birthday celebration!
The villa Gould not have been more perfect for our group. The bedrooms were large, the meeting areas through the property were comfortable and inviting, the kitchen was set up well for s large group and the pool/lanai made enjoying the outdoors a must!
Jill and Allen were wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and we will definitely be back!
Thank you for staying with us. I enjoyed celebrating Gary's B-day weekend as much as he did I think. You are always welcome back. Cheers Allen and Jill
Amazing villa in Willamette
We had several couples share this villa and do some wine tasting in the valley. It is perfectly located and Allen could not be a more gracious host. He frequently checked in, via text, to make sure we didn’t need anything to make our stay more enjoyable. He was a great resource for restaurants, wineries, and local sight seeing. I would recommend this villa and overall experience without hesitation.
I am glad that your second stay was as enjoyable as your first. We look forward to your next visit. Cheers Allen and Jill
Excellent location for Wine Tasting
Just got back from a very relaxing, enjoyable stay at the Methven property. Could not say enough wonderful things about the homeowners, the property and the location. Allen and Jill were wonderful to work with. They met us at the home and gave us a complete walk-through and answered all questions we had with graciousness and a wonderful sense of humor. We went for a long weekend with 4 other couples and everyone had their own well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. The chefs kitchen was so much fun to cook in and there were many seating areas for everyone to relax and enjoy. Game nights were so much fun - as there is a well stocked game room with pool, foosball and shuffle board. Will definitely recommend staying here to anyone going to the Willamette Valley.
It was great meeting all of you. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again. Allen
