We love to bike, camp, and camp by bike. We're near the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway and initially joined AirBnB because we thought other cyclists would enjoy a place to stop for the night.

Dennis and Rachel were great. They were extremely welcoming and we enjoyed our stay. The room was prefect for our trip. We only wish we could have stayed longer to check out some more of the surrounding area.
Amazing people with a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Dennis and Rachel kindly accommodated my unusually long stay while I searched the Salem area for a permanent home. From the friendly conversations and the delicious dinners to the awesome trail run through a nearby state forest, there was always fun to be had. Their recommendations for local food, shops, and sightseeing were always great and best of all they made my stay comfortable and stress-free. Highly recommended - and doubly so if you enjoy pedal powered transportation!
Dennis and Rachel have a little slice of heaven. Their place is super cute and the bed is great. They are both friendly and are awesome hosts who are willing to help you as much as they can. We would recommend staying here as well if you need advise on starting a hobbie farm as theirs is awesome!!
Wonderful hosts, great home, comfortable bed. Fascinated with the wine brewed on site and how sustainable the farm and home are.
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying with Dennis and Rachel, the house was amazing and the bed comfortable. Great communication, and they had warm homemade bread for us in the morning. Rachel told us about a local coffee shop that was wonderful. Would love to stay with them again on our next trip through Oregon!
These folks have created a little piece of heaven for themselves in the middle of farm country. Even better they are willing to share it with travelers! This is also a friendly stop for cyclists needing information or a place to pitch a tent for the night. I loved the farm animals! The menagerie includes goats, alpacas, chickens, ducks, a sheep and a couple of nifty cats. The red barn is especially iconic. In the early mornings I could hear the owls calling. At night constellations were easily seen in the dark country sky. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and I give them my highest recommendation!
Dennis and Rachel are two of the sweetest, most accommodating hosts I've ever met. They open their lovely home (including beautiful gardens, a scrubbed and well appointed modern aesthetic, CUTE animals, and cool friends) to guests with open arms. They care about everything they do-- from the bread and wine they make to the thoughtful social environment they cultivate. Theirs is the best Airbnb experience I've had and I recommend them with the most heartfelt enthusiasm. The place is a gem and should be on everyone's list of places to go. Is close enough to the coast, the Willamette Valley, and even Portland to be a Pacific North West home base. I recommend with no hesitation whatsoever

I've pedaled the Willamette Valley Bikeway several times now and have memories of several places along the route that were drop-dead gorgeous. Rachel and Dennis's farm, by coincidence, is situated along one of these places; up in the hills, pastoral, quiet, little in the way of traffic, noise.
It is @ 47 miles from the start at Champoeg Park and a perfect distance for the first day of a three day ride to Eugene.
We enjoyed the nice drive though the Salem country, and arrived at this cute farm. We stayed the night on the lower end of the farm, next to a stream, and were southed with the sound of crickets and frogs all night. Only downside is the nearby train tracks, but the trains don't use their horns (it was actually exciting to hear the two trains go by that night). Rachel was very accommodating and nice to talk to. We want to come back, but this time with our bikes to enjoy the country that way.
Dennis and Rachel are amazing guests. They stayed for one night to wake at 4am to run the Wildwood Trail in Forest Park for Rachel's Birthday; the total distance is 30 miles...and yes... they ran the entire trail in less than 8 hours. I met them after their run and they surprisingly didn't look tired at all; they seemed refreshed and ready to start their day. Very nice couple and an inspiration to meet them.
