The space

Quiet, roomy home with views toward the river and easy access to downtown Salem, or the highway to Cascade Mountains or Pacific beaches. Roomy closet, comfortable single bed, work table; shared bathroom across the hall; living room, deck and kitchen all available. Family neighborhood with low traffic and good neighbors close to conveniences and places of interest.
A ten-minute walk brings you to coffee shops, quality grocery store, library, hardware, parks, restaurants, bookstore, transit mall, etc. In fifteen more minutes you can walk to downtown Salem via the lovely pedestrian bridge across the Willamette River. Bus service, bike paths or your car can take you to your destination or exploration.

Guest access

Kitchen, bathroom, living and dining room, deck above garden, front porch and front yard.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy having morning coffee or evening glass of wine with a guests depending on our schedules. Usually I can help answer questions, make suggestions, provide directions to meet the guest's needs

The neighborhood

Located on an older non-through of street of family houses with views of the foothills across the river, the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. A 10 minute walk leads to a large park with stream, natural hillside, playground and walking paths. Or 15 minutes the other way leads to a very large park along the Willamette River where national softball tournaments and local soccer matches can be seen. A quality supermarket, coffee shops, restaurant, banks, post office, library and more are all walking distance.

Getting around

The West Salem transit mall or a bus stop are each about 10-15 minutes by foot. Downtown can also be reached on foot or bicycle mostly on a designated pathway. Parking available either on or off street.

Sara was a fantastic host! I met her on arrival and she showed me around the house and recommended somewhere to eat in downtown Salem. This was a short distance from her home. Sara is a wonderful person to sit down and have a chat with. She couldn't have done more to make me feel welcome. On the day I departed she left out some of her dried fruit for snacks on my onward journey. I would highly recommend staying with Sara.

Sara was very accommodating and welcoming, she made sure I was comfortable and even offered me some delicious mango lemonade! The house was clean and inviting, just what I needed for a quick stop in Salem.

Sara User ProfileSara is a superhost.

An avid traveler and lover of the outdoors, I teach English to non-native speakers at the community college in Salem. Nowadays I do that parttime, making way for winter skiing, summer hiking , road trips or river trips, music, reading and favorite small children. History, gardening, poetry and literature, food, agriculture are some of my interests. Turkey, Greece, Ukraine, Mexico, Switzerland and France are places I've traveled alone and spent at least 2-8weeks each. In fact, staying in one place while exploring all around suits me better than continuous travel, and that's the experience I'd like to enable as a host. From here, there are so many day trips: to the Pacific, to wineries of all sorts, cities north and south (Portland and Eugene), the Columbia Gorge and Mt Hood, waterfalls and forests, art galleries and museums.
One of my strengths is connecting folks with resources and opportunities. At work, that's been my focus in helping newcomers with cultural adjustment. Helping guests get the most from their time here appeals to me, but I also value independence and privacy, so knowing what they prefer can make a good stay for us both.
