A rural setting on the edge of Salem. Because of the tall trees and surrounding acreage, civilization seems far away. Easy access from I-5, plenty of restaurants nearby, as well as larger stores and food markets. We are one hour south of Portland, one hour east of the coast, one hour west of Cascades, one hour north of Eugene.
5 miles south of downtown Salem. City bus stop 1/4 mile away.
