My son and I picked this place due to its location in regard to wine tasting in the Willamette Valley and for us it was perfect with 2 beds separated by a wall which gave us both a bit of privacy. Comfortable beds, nice bathroom and a beautiful house with a fantastic view over the valley and a garden that was absolutely lovely and planted years ago by the owners. We shared wine and a very nice healthy salad and lots of life stories. Be sure to take the advice from the hostess on what to see, do and eat because it was a perfect itinery she created for us......from riding a ferry, beer tasting, eating at an organic farm and wine tasting near Salem. We had a perfect stay! Do not hesitate on booking with Deanna and Glen, it was much more value than we expected. Astrid and Adam Sonora, CA

Deanna and Glen's home was really comfortable, beautiful, peaceful and clean. I actually slept better than in my own comfy bed. Our hosts were thoughtful and considerate. Honestly, I can't think of anything I would change, because the home far exceeded my expectations!

Don't forget your key because you'll be locked out and it is not their problem. Be able to tolerate temperature variations when you sleep. 80's to 50's. Know that their bedroom is right next to your bathroom. So you need to dress appropriately to get there at all times.

Response from Deanna And Glen:
Wow, we wish we had know you were unhappy with the temperature, because we have AC. It was in the low 80's the 4 days you were here and with the evening breeze, it cools down at night, so if you leave a window open it will be cooler. if you had let us know we would have made every effort to make you happy. We left that last day Before you did, so you were the last to lock the door and would know to bring along your own key. We were in Portland for the afternoon (an hours drive each way), and thought you were off on an adventure of your own. When we got back at 5:00 you said it was "no big deal" and returned your tux. There is an extra screen in your room if you had wanted to block off the hall.

Glen and Deanna were the most welcoming hosts I've experienced through all my airbnb stays. They made us feel at home and went the extra mile if there was anything we needed. Their home was incredible and there was tons to do on the property :)

Lovely, clean & cozy place!! And sooo quiet--all your hear are birds & seeing deer roaming through--so peaceful! For quiet & beauty--stay here. :) My husband & I stayed for a weekend--to be close to the Salem fairgrounds for a convention. Location--great! Away from it all-yet still only 10 min drive for us. Glen is a kind, pleasant, & helpful host. The view from the suite is just beautiful!! And having breakfast ready for us--worked out great! We enjoyed strolling the gardens & the porch swing--so relaxing! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home Glen & Deanna. And thank you again Glen, for the hospitality! :)

Deanna and Glen love the beauty of the Willamette Valley and enjoy gardening, nature hikes, art, photography and local wineries. Their home has a large deck with a beautiful view of the valley and Ankeny Bird Refuge and is great for relaxing with a good book, binoculars and glass of wine. There is abundant wildlife and over 30 species of birds with a big vegetable garden and fruit trees. They enjoy traveling, good food and living in the center of the valley allows them to drive an hour in any direction to play at the coast, the mountains or Portland for the plays and dance productions they frequent.
