About the Host, Danna
IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS: DON'T LET YOUR GPS SEND YOU ON A GRAVEL ROAD! Go to the town of McMinnville then set your GPS for my address. Too many guest have arrived wide-eyed and blanched from the gravel road trek!
I am a retired teacher who still enjoys taking on various jobs with the local school district to stay up to date in the field. I recently moved back to my home in the foothills of the coast range, having learned that I am not cut out for city life. Since I love the Oregon country so much, I decided to share my paradise with other travelers.
I recently traveled through India for nine weeks and Australia for five weeks spending much of my time in home stays or B&B's. It allowed me to see a side of the life and culture that otherwise remains hidden to most vacationers who stay on the beaten path. I could be as public or private as I wanted in each situation, but still had access to the local point of view and insights. Please know that I will be sensitive to your needs whether it be quiet, alone time or questions and answers about the local culture, sights and events.
My long term passions include horseback riding (since I was four), boating, reading and traveling. Recently, I have fallen in love with scuba diving which has led me to some interesting places.
I look forward to hosting you in my home and making your trip as pleasant as possible while discovering the beautiful sights of Oregon's Cascade Range, the Willamette Valley Wine Country, and the magnificent coastal beaches and viewpoints.
