BunkHouse Retreat, Salem, Oregon
Looks just like the photo and was very comfortable. Such a beautiful, quiet and restful location. Easy, short walking distance to Minto-Brown Island Park. Looking forward to staying there again.
A nice, quiet, cozy place near enough to the city of Salem that feels like you are in a nature preserve. There is a beautiful pond right outside the door, and we were lucky enough to see rabbits and water fowl.
We would definitely stay here again.
Tracey, Thank you for the lovely review and for loving the bunkhouse. We think the place is a true sanctuary and so happy when we get to host guests that think so also.
I appreciate you and your business! All my best, Angela Jones
We enjoyed our stay. The setting is beautiful. My only suggestion is to add a brighter light somewhere in the room. It was cosy but a little darker than I liked.
Thank you and good idea especially as the days get shorter. Thank you for staying and being our guest! All my best, Angela Jones
Very good location
A little tricky to find, though directions accurate. Hidden, though (driving) close to downtown. Manager very helpful and accessible.
In 1857, Isaac "Whiskey"Brown established his home on what came to be know as Brown's Island, near the west bank of the Willamette River. Here the colorful and untidy Brown raised livestock, farm produce and tobacco. In 1867, John Minto purchased and cleared land on an island near the east bank, turning it into productive farmland, it would later come to be the named Minto Island. Today this beautiful place is a tranquil wildlife sanctuary!
