Bright, airy and with a completely private entrance, this studio is proximal to the famed wine tasting region, Willamette Valley. Go for the day, take in the scenery, and bring back a bottle to enjoy while you soak in the large tub. Everything you need to prep simple food resides in a small kitchen area. It’s a great little spot to call home for a few days.
Inexpensive for the amount of space you get, which includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home is well-rated for its clean modern style and amenities that will make guests feel like they are at home. Cook up a meal in the full kitchen, or just make the short trek to downtown and try out the restaurants.
The blend of coastal decor and 1940s craftsman construction just works extremely well in this welcoming abode. Everything feels new and fresh, which is what we need when retreating from real life. Being just one hour from the coast, it could be the best of both worlds for those on an Oregon adventure.
An absolutely solid budget option, this precious bungalow has a private suite housed in a converted garage. The entrance is separate from the rest of the house, and the landscaping and interior are nothing short of charming. A minimalist feel carries throughout the Airbnb, and an outdoor patio space is a continuation of the open feel.
Inside is homey enough, but oh my, that backyard steals the show. A hot tub, sauna, fire pit and crisp landscaping will make you want to toss a sleeping bag out there, under the stars. A budget-friendly choice, guests have access to the full home, with three bedrooms and two baths.
This 1905 home has recently been renovated by a chainsaw artist, and the totally private guest quarters feature earthy wood floors and doors, along with some awesome pieces from the actual artist. Guests can tour the gallery while watching some of the pieces be created before their eyes.
A yurt is both connected to nature and very “house-like” at the same time. It’s warm in the winter, protected from the elements, but still has the essence of camping. This Salem based yurt is quite swanky, with wood floors, a beautiful bath and a whimsical sleeping space. Affordable, and set amongst stunning oak trees, it’s a fun, proximal to civilization choice.
Somewhat rustic, somewhat European farmhouse, this collision of subtle but distinct styles makes for a truly romantic space to getaway. Take in the blooming landscape from the polished porch, or have coffee near one of the massive windows while soaking in the warmth of the sun.
Small yet totally funky and affordable, the home is ready to accommodate for an extended stay. The patio has great views of the plants in the backyard, while you could also go sit under one of the beaches to soak up some sunshine.
Right on the border of Salem is this pleasantly odd gypsy tiny abode that’s full of warmth and color. Shingled siding and endearing deep blue touches round out a visually pleasing exterior. Inside features surprisingly spacious living space and snuggly loft up the ladder. Set amongst the Willamette Valley, and right on its own urban vineyard, get excited to try some of the northwest’s best varietals.
Eclectically artistic, this woodsy cabin sits on the outskirts of the Salem area. Rushing by, feet from the scenic porch, is a sparkling river, making this little dwelling the ultimate fishing or kayaking getaway. Soak in the large tub, enjoy the intricately tiled shower, or relax by a warm fire—everything one could want in a peaceful forest getaway can be found right here.
The quaint Airbnb serenely overlooks a blue-hued lake, which attracts a wealth of wildlife that can be seen from the privacy of the porch. Inside is designed with vintage in mind, and the full kitchen is an exciting addition. Located on a farm, the house is equipped inside and out with everything you’ll need for a comfy stay.
