Interaction with GuestsWe do like like to meet and greet our guests when they arrive, interaction after that is more to the discretion of the guests. We are always willing to answer questions about the area and what activities are available. If the guest(s) wish we can provide interaction with llamas, mini horse, and details on wine/brewery tours. The NeighborhoodA quiet rural setting: farm land, livestock grazing, vineyards and lots of open space. A place where one can see the stars shining brightly at night. Getting AroundWe are located between Salem and McMinnville off a main county road. There is no transit available to this area. The closest transit would be either the McMinnville bus system which does connect to the Portland Transit or the Salem bus system with its park and ride stations and access to Amtrak. Other Things to NoteThere are over 30 wineries/breweries within a 15 mile radius (tours anyone?) and a myriad of art galleries and museums (Hallie Ford, Mission Mill, Antique Powerland, Evergreen Space etc.), plus the Willamette Mission State park (hiking, horseback riding and bike friendly) is just across the Willamette River via the Wheatland Ferry. The Oregon State Capital, Willamette University and Linfield College are about a 15 minute drive. The Schreiner’s Iris Gardens, Adelman Peony Gardens and the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm are just a short drive and seasonally there are several pumpkin patches, fresh produce stands and farmers markets. McMinnville has an active theater -Gallery Players and Salem often hosts events at the restored historic Elsinore Theater. We are within reasonable driving distance of many diverse activities: wine-making, horseback riding, fishing, boating, theater, cinemas, live music venues, casino, museums, formal gardens, art galleries, universities, and the list goes on....
