Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay! Linda was flexible with our arrival time and got us set up quickly and easily. The home is lovely, very private and secluded with beautiful ceramic artwork throughout. Fantastic views of Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, and the Willamette Valley from the deck on clear days. Linda very kindly had coffee, tea, cream, oatmeal and a couple bananas out for us- and later dropped off some vegetables from her garden! Great kitchen fully stocked with pots/pans/utensils. Very well located for wine tasting with many vineyards nearby. I highly recommend Eola Hills Hideaway for your next trip to wine country, and hope to be back myself!

  • This has got to be quietest place in western Oregon, at the end of a road with no traffic, surrounded by farms and vineyards. We had a delightful rustic getaway: visited a couple of unassuming wineries with fantastic product: bought some local cheese: but mostly just sat on the porch and enjoyed the view from the Eola Hills over the Willamette Valley. Delightful - exactly the break we needed. We'll go back.

  • Let me just say that if you're looking for a lovely, cozy place to 'get away from it all" and still have access to great wine, food and the farmland of Oregon, this is the place. LOVED our stay! Thank you!

  • What an amazing place to stay if you are in Willamette Valley. Linda was super flexible with check in and had a beautiful, clean, and comfortable place to stay for two days while exploring wine country.

    Leading up to our arrival, Linda was very responsive and accommodating, greeting us with fresh fruit and vegetables from her garden upon arrival.

    She was always nearby if we needed anything, but we honestly never did. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway as a couple or family these are great people with an unforgettable place.

  • This was perfect for our little wine foray. The apartment was spacious, clean, and welcoming. The location was convenient for us to visit wineries in Newburg, Dundee, and McMinnville, as well as to try some restaurants in Salem. Linda and Craig were very friendly.

  • Thank you Craig and LInda! Our stay was outstanding. Great privacy! Wonderful watching sunrises with Mount Hood on the horizon. Your accommodations are centrally located to enjoy the 'fruit' of the Willamette Valley; cheese, fudge, farmers' markets, beer and wine tastings! And the added bonus of 'shopping' your hand crafted pottery and glass! We enjoyed our selves immensely Thank you! The Mielke's.

  • Lots of nice amenities here, with a relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful view of farm country and Mount Hood in the distance. Close to several wineries, and a reasonable drive to dozens more. There is a staggering amount of art in this apartment from many different artists, including the owners. Just about anything you could think of that you might need is provided.

  • The Hideaway in Eola Hills is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The view from the deck was gorgeous! We watched the sunset and sunrise and finally understood what purple mountain majesty means. The inside of the house was so beautiful and interesting. I think you could stay here for a month and still find some artistic aspect you had missed. Linda had breakfast food and snacks ready for us when we arrived and Craig ground us fresh coffee. We were lucky enough to see Craig and Linda's workshop and buy some of their beautiful artwork. Best part of our vacation!

  • Do yourself a favor and check out Linda and Craig's amazing place. Our only regret is that we couldn't spend more time there (my wife and I had to work during the daytimes so we only got to enjoy our early mornings and evenings there). The place is very spacious, well-equipped and chock-full of incredible art at every turn. It's like staying in a very comfortable museum. There is a huge kitchen/living area with gorgeous bathroom, large bedroom with spacious, separate sitting room, huge deck overlooking pastoral fields, with Mt Hood in the distance. The house is at the end of a longish but smooth dirt road, so privacy and quiet are guaranteed.

    Linda and Craig are artists, as is clearly evident by the amazing array of art in their hideaway.

    I cannot recommend this place highly enough and we will be sure to try and stay there again if we find ourselves in the neighborhood. A true delight.

  • With one adult and two teenagers (18 and 16), this space was a perfect fit. It was like staying in a museum with so much to delight the eyes inside. It was like staying in paradise with the sweeping outside view. Binoculars were thoughtfully provided by the hosts. So very quiet and secluded. Linda is such a fascinating person that our introductory chat ended up lasting several hours because we were both so engaged. In general, I don't like to stay at a place twice because there is so much to see in the world. I *will* come back here again as the peace and serenity are unparalleled. Really enjoyed no wifi!

Pottery and fused glass
I have been a craftsperson most of my life and have worked with jewelry, clay and glass over the years. I was born in Eugene. My husband and I live on the farm I grew up on near Salem. I like to garden, travel and read. I currently have a shop on Etsy selling mostly vintage clothing. My husband is a studio potter. He played drums in a R&R band in the '60s and has renewed his interest, currently taking drum lessons and sitting in at local jam sessions.
