I found everything at the Pacific NW Retreat to be just as described...peaceful, spacious, and private. Debbie is a wonderful host--friendly and welcoming, but most of all flexible. Due to flight delays I ended up arriving in the wee hours, which she was fine with. She had everything that I needed for a comfortable stay, and more. Definitely a great place to stay!
Debbie's place is easily the best place we visited on our trip through Oregon! We expected a small apartment with a view; instead, we had a room, a living area, private entrances and porches, and a spectacular sunset. The best part is that this retreat is minutes from downtown Salem, which was a pleasant surprise.
Debbie met us as we pulled up, then gave us a quick tour of the space and an overview of her house rules. After that, we had complete and total privacy to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun set. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom came equipped with shampoo, body wash, towels, and a hair dryer. The dining area included a hot plate, microwave, kettle, coffee pot, cereal, and light snacks. We also had access to a sitting area, which we didn't take advantage of; we opted for the deck seating.
Thank you for a great stay!
We rented the room at Debbie's place for out-of-town family during our wedding in Salem. Our guests who stayed at her place had nothing but rave reviews! Highly recommended.
Our host was very accommodating to our needs. We have a one year old and we had to experience some super hot weather while in Oregon and she and her husband were able to provide AC for my family. Very nice people and a beautiful relaxing experience.
We had a wonderful time at Deb's place in Salem. She was a gracious hostess who provided everything you might need - snacks, breakfast, laundry, and a clean and comfortable place with a beautiful view. If you are lucky enough to stay when she has a yoga class in the morning, she will let you sit in. I was very grateful for this after so many days in the car and my body screaming for some stretching! We did a little wine tasting close by. I would love to visit again soon.
My fiancé and I had a very relaxing stay with Debbie. The bed was so comfy and the linens so fresh and clean. There were even robes available! Very luxurious! It was a great getaway for a wedding weekend tucked in the country, but only 5 min. from stores and town. Thanks, Debbie!
Thank you so much for such a peaceful, serene, relaxing environment. It was just what I needed. When I visit Salem again, I will be planning on staying with you.

We hike so this year we are going to Yosemite and staying at airbnb homes. Love meeting people. We have lots of friends. Love traveling in the Pacific NW. Went to Costa Rica last year and yes, we stayed at airbnb places. Such a much more fun experience than motels,etc.
