The space
The MerryOtt's Owl's Loft is on 5 acres with million dollar views atop a secluded hill in a rural, serene and wooded setting. No big city lights, no big city traffic. Easy access to the main roads that head to the best of Oregon like the beach, wineries, golf, trails, fishing, charming smaller towns, Spirit Mountain Casino, and Portland and Salem. When the weather allows, you'll have no trouble seeing a star-filled-night-time sky. Looking through different windows in the loft, you can see either the tops of trees, Ollie's (the Owl) Big Old Oak tree, or our part of the Willamette valley with the nearby coastal-hills backdrop. It is common to see birds of prey flying nearby, beautiful sunsets and visiting rainbows after a fresh Oregon rain. Listen for the chirping birds, the howling coyote, the donkey, and other sounds not commonly heard by most city dwellers! The Loft has a fully equipped kitchenette (i.e. small refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, toaster oven, blender, dishes, pans) making it possible to prepare basic meals while you are "in the boonies"). It is equipped for short term AND long term stays. And for when you don't want to prepare a meal, you are 3 miles from a small town grocery store and restaurants, or 12 minutes from around-the-clock food service at the Spirit Mountain Casino, or 25 minutes from highly rated wine country restaurants in McMinnville. Our MerryOtt's Owl's Loft is conveniently located to access some of the best that Oregon has to offer. We are AWAY FROM IT ALL BUT NEAR THE BEST!

While our cleaning and sanitization practices might not be unique (as we hope all AirBnB hosts follow standard guidelines), there are many things that we consider unique to our location, including:

1. Seclusion & beautiful vistas, very rural on 5 acres, but cell signal is almost always stable using WiFi. Quiet and serene environment.
2. Centrally located and easy access to some of Oregon's best places to visit.
3. High Speed Internet that allows working from home even though we are rural. We have high speed internet with 1 gigabit. All is run using WiFi. (Devices that are not gigabit ready will likely experience 3-400 mbps). Our bandwidth is high and we have not had typical country living complaints from those staying with us. Deer Haven Guests: Please bring your own ethernet cables if you'd like to plug in instead of being wireless. Loft Guests: I've been told you can play video's at 720 megabits/sec (1080 is not likely).
4. LOFT: 1 flat screen TV Loft with an Apple TV device so you can access your own subscriptions (such as Netflix). DEER HAVEN: 2 flat screens.
5. Mid-stay cleanings can almost always be arranged--for another cleaning.
6. More lodging is on the property: If you are traveling with others and want lodging near each other, see if our other options are available: MerryOtt's Deer Haven (located on the bottom floor of the main house): 1 bedroom apartment with great amenities with the option of an additional twin bedroom/office suite (adjoins the basement apartment) .
7. Over 100 trails are a short drive away and good for walking, ATV's, motorcycles and more.
8. Spacious Studio Apartment set up for short and long term stays.

Where you’ll be

Willamina, Oregon, United States

The tree and fern-covered hillside on which the MerryOtt's Owls' Loft is located shows the rural beauty of Oregon. Only 5 other homes share the hill (each on it's own 5+ acre parcel). Once you start up our driveway, the seclusion really begins. Neighbors are rarely seen or heard (unless planned) and no other homes are in sight. It is very quiet but sometimes you'll hear the neighbor's donkey or horses (just beyond the scrub oak tree forest), the coyote and sometimes a dog. If on a walk, you might meet a goat or two, and maybe even a few roaming people loving dogs. Make a day of it--visit the few shops in Willamina and then head to the next little town (Sheridan) for the J Wrigley Winery, then onto McMinnville for their quaint shops downtown, and don't forget the Dundee wine tasting.

40+ years in Oregon and we still love it. My husband and I grew up together in Iowa, each with big families, and we subscribe to traditional common sense values. We spent almost 45 years helping to create effective education. Retirement is allowing even more time to explore Oregon's beauty (and beyond). We enjoy being with our friends and family, volunteering, reading, and more. I like strumming the ukulele and singing with friends. Greg stays active with sports like tennis, golf, basketball and bicycle riding. (I now have an electric bicycle--bye bye Greg)! We travel (even in the RV) and play pickle-ball. I love being available to share knowledge of the area (including the wineries & the best nearby restaurants!) or to be more on the invisible side if preferred by guests.

We are more than willing to share our ideas for for day trips (i.e. possible activities, good wineries, golf courses, fishing and restaurants).
