The MerryOtt's Owl's Loft is special, not just because it is new and private, but because of the 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, the wineries, golf, trails, fishing and the charming smaller towns (and Spirit Mountain Casino). 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"). 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. 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!
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 (all on 5+ acre parcels). 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 local friendly goat that likes to roam with a few very old and people-loving dogs (who like to bark and pretend to chase cars). Make a day of it--visit the few shops in Willamina and then head to the next little town (Sheridan) for the J Wrigley wine, then onto McMinnville for their quaint shops downtown, and don't forget the Dundee wine tasting.
