Interaction with Guests
I want to be flexible for our guests. I enjoy stimulating conversation but if you prefer your privacy that is okay too.
Across the street from the house is a greenway and walking path that travels across town. Guests can walk, run, bike or roller blade their way to McMinnville's downtown.
Our city is wonderful! Whether you enjoy shopping, dining, wine tasting, micro brews or just hanging out in a coffee shop, you'll love McMinnville and the surrounding area!
McMinnville is a wonderful small city. Half way between Portland and the Pacific Coast it's in the heart of Oregon wine country. It is the home to the "Spruce Goose"built by Howard Hughes and made famous in the movie "The Aviator."
Within 2 hours drive of McMinnville there are five distinct ecosystems great for exploring and hiking.
We are 2 miles from downtown McMinnville. It's a nice, but longish, walk on the public greenway and through the park.
Public transit is available but we are about 2.4 miles from the bus stop so you'll likely want your own wheels.
Other Things to Note
Bobby and Elsie are our cats. They are indoor/outdoor cats who have free range of the property. The cats will not, however, have access to your guest space. If you are allergic you'll be able to avoid them and we have air purification in the guest space for your health and safety.
A 1% state lodging tax is paid when booking. An additional 8% local lodging tax is due upon arrival made payable to the owner.
Please no smoking indoors and we do have 2 cats so please leave your pets at home.
The combination of the master bedroom and the connected living room area worked perfectly for our stay. My mom and I each had our own space, with a pocket door between that we could leave open or closed. The fold out couch in the living space has an amazingly comfortable air mattress! Easy to inflate and deflate.
Living space is superbly, warmly appointed. The breakfast nook has delightful and plentiful options for breakfast, and fresh fruit, and snacks for later. A small dining table added a touch of home. This space was just ideal. Neighborhood is very quiet and safe. We quickly made friends with Elsie and Bob, house cats, who take on hosting duties when their human is away. And also can be kept out of the space if one is not so inclined. Thanks, Bill, for thinking of everything. (Even an ironing board!)
This was by far the best experience we have ever had as Airbnb members. Bills home is lovely and well appointed, located in a quiet neighborhood with a field behind the house. The suite was well stocked with a wide selection of items for our continental breakfast. The king sized bed was very comfortable with the en-suite bathroom adding to the luxury feel.The living room was large with plenty of natural light and possibly the best looking TV we have ever watched.
Bill makes every effort to ensure his guests have everything they need to have a pleasant stay.
We will be booking with Bill again, anytime we are in the area.
Bill response to questions was very timely. Accommodation was very neat & comfortable. It is in a very beautiful neighborhood. McMinnville is very beautiful town and Bill's hospitality made the trip memorable. We did not communicated much with Bill as he had to leave, we would definitely like to revisit and talk more if we plan another trip in that area.
Bill Wilton's wonderful home is becoming as popular as the fine wineries in the Willamette Valley. It couldn't be a better experience because of Bill's great human warmth and thoughtfulness toward his guests. There's always an abundance of health-giving foods in the kitchen but Bill always extends an invitation to tell him our preferences. This results in the most memorable fresh fruits--incomparable blackberries and strawberries and other seasonal fare--in Oregon. The property is perfectly maintained with an abundance of all those things necessary for a happy, restful and relaxed stay. The walking areas are abundant right out of the front door and we often see beaver in the stream a short walk from the house. Bills location also represents a perfect departure point for the phenomenal wineries all through the Willamette and particularly the magnificent Eola-Amity AVA. Bill's home is, for us (and apparently for anyone leaving feedback for him) a genuine "home away from home." The environment is comfort incarnate, a neighborhood and host filled with kindness, and our fervent hope is that you will enjoy it as much as we always do.
We had a quick but pleasant stay at Bill's. He was welcoming, helpful and easy to communicate with. The room was very clean, bright and peaceful and we really enjoyed the sound of the birds in the morning. Very relaxing place. Highly recommend.
About the Host, Bill
Hi there! I was born and raised in the Upper Midwest (Michigan) and moved to McMinnville in 2001. I enjoy reading, food and wine, ethnic cuisine, movies, equine breeding, baseball, hockey, international travel and fishing. I love to explore new places, have new experiences and meet new friends.
I absolutely LOVE to go out for breakfast so I can share my favorite breakfast or brunch spots around the valley. I will also point you in the direction of the best Mediterranean, Persian, Indian, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, French, German and Italian food within 50 miles. If you are really sly you might talk me into revealing my favorite little hide away at the coast for wood fired pizza. It's just an hour away.
Out of doors is important to me. Whether it is fly fishing or hiking, I love the majestic creation! I love to catch a nice trout on a fly rod in a mountain lake or stream. Occasionally, I make it back to Michigan's Upper Peninsula to fly fish where I learned at my family's cabin. One day I plan to visit Alaska, New Zealand and Chile for some world-class fly fishing!
As a former State Park Ranger, I am an excellent tour guide and host. I'll help you find the perfect vineyard tasting room to enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over the Willamette Valley. I can point you in the right direction for a beautiful drive in the mountains, toward a great hiking trail or waterfall, and tell you the best place to stand on the coast for a picture you'll enjoy the rest of your life.
When you stay I will offer pleasant conversation or give you your privacy, whichever serves you best! Welcome to my peaceful home.
