I mostly host single travelers, and I pay the 10% transient lodging tax that all room rentals do under 30 days. Built in 1924 with loads of character, white picket fence, porch swing, yard and gardens. 1/2 mile to downtown 3rd Street and a few blocks from Linfield College. The jumping off point to Oregon Wine Country. The bed is a futon, comfortable for most, but I want to be up front as some people don't find it firm enough.
I truly love my home, because of its old bones. However, the floor boards and doors creak and it has its quirks. Close it gently and firmly; you can use the lock at the top of the door if doesn't stay shut. Your bedroom looks over the backyard and garden, with windows facing east and south. Really nice light!
There is a shared bathroom, not connected to the bedroom. Fridge in the laundry room. You're welcome to do laundry while you're here.
You will most likely be sharing my home with me. I have had all different types of guests, some that have become my friends and we're super chatty and friendly. But others just need a nice place to stay while they do their own thing. I am happy with both. However, this is my home, not a hotel!
I am mainly interested in hosting single visitors, although I will occasionally accept couples. After years of hosting in my space, I've found this to be the most comfortable for me in my house. There is room for a group to stay, but I will only approve guests that seem to mesh with me. I will offer you a custom price that will be more then the listed price, which is intended for a single visitor.
Please remove your shoes when you come in the house and especially when you go to the bathroom.
I have wonderful cookware that I'm happy for you to use if you know how to use it. Cast iron needs special care. If you don't know how to clean/care don't use it. No metal utensils on teflon/ Le Cruset. Hand wash wine glasses. I will often leave a bottle of wine for you to drink, but please don't drink my wine otherwise!
I was a public school teacher for about a decade, but now I have transitioned to the wine industry. Currently, I work at a small winery in town. I do a little bit of everything. I moved from Portland in September 2015 and I love living in small town America.
I love food, wine, coffee, travel, art, and absurdity. I speak Italian poorly.
I'm an artistic, creative, well-read person. Please read some of my blogs at talktom about wine or openingourparac about my career transition or about a Southerner living in the Pacific Northwest southeastinthepacificnor
