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.
