About this listing
Our cozy studio cottage offers an affordable comfort in a great neighborhood within walking distance to historic Third Street in McMinnville. The cottage overlooks a large private yard and garden with BBQ, fire pit and plenty of room to relax.
Our cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood in McMinnville. It takes 10 minutes to walk into town, pool, library, or city park. It comfortably sleeps two people. The cottage faces into a large private backyard.
When we have guests, we give them full use of the backyard and BBQ area.
Interaction with Guests
The cottage is located behind our house. We do respect the privacy of our guests as much as possible. We lead very active lives so many times we are not at home after check in.
We live in an older neighborhood in McMinnville. It is a good place to have children, close to school and town.
We walk to town or ride our bikes to the local market and many days we may not get into our cars.
Other Things to Note
McMinnville is located surrounded with beauty. With vineyards, ocean, orchards, city, mountains and a small town atmosphere, it really is hard to beat.
We do no allow smoking in our cottage. On occasion we have had smaller well behaved dogs visit. It is not a party place, but more of a relaxation get-a-way place.
This cottage was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting wine country. Adorable, clean, comfortable, and with lots of little touches (coffee, tea, granola bars, etc.) that set it apart! Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to meet Connie, but Mark was a charming host, and made everything easy and comfortable. The neighborhood is perfect to walk to, or take a short drive to, downtown McMinnville, and the backyard was gorgeous! We spent quite a bit of time there enjoying a glass of wine. We hope to visit the area again soon, and if we do, will definitely stay with Connie and Mark once again!
We loved having a large, well kept, private yard at the front door of the guest house. The accommodations suited us perfectly.
The place with clean, cute, and in a great location! Def would recommend this spot to anyone staying in McMinnville! Loves being able to walk around the town!
Connie is an incredibly gracious host. She warmly welcomed me to McMinnville and allowed me the peace and quiet to enjoy the town.
I had a great time at the garden cottage. It was a private, peaceful retreat for me during my stay. I sat outside in the sun, slept so well on the comfy bed and enjoyed the perfectly appointed cottage. Would certainly stay again and highly recommend it!
Perfect! Sweet space, great location in a lovely neighborhood, super comfy bed with soft sheets. Highly recommended :)
Connie's garden cottage is a wonderful place to stay in the Willamette Valley area. Warm, clean, and quiet. A very comfortable McMinnville neighborhood spot with easy access to local restaurants and the surrounding wine region. I booked the cottage within a few days notice and the place was ready for me upon arrival. I would definitely stay here again.
About the Host, Connie
I am a retired school teacher living in a wonderful spot on earth, McMinnville,Oregon. Located between ocean and mountains in a valley full of vineyards and orchards, it is a beautiful place to visit and call home. I love meeting people who come to my cottage. I can guide their stay or learn from them as they explore the many vineyards and restaurants and sites that fill this beautiful valley. I feel so fortunate to live in a spot where I can walk to most anything I need; library,pool, post office, restaurants, health food store, wine tasting, brew pubs and many shops to browse. It is a great place to live.
