Allen and Jill Methven purchased this villa in 2001

Why Allen and Jill Methven chose Dayton

This is a unique property in that it is surrounded by vineyards and has views of the Valley and the Cascades with no subdivisions in sight. Very private yet close to everything you need. We were looking for property for a few years and then found this perfect location by chance as it was not listed at the time. It was 100% raw land and gave us the challenge and opportunity to create our own home, landscaping, vineyards and Winery. Jill grew up in the country on a horse ranch/farm and Allen loves living on and off the land and large open spaces.

As soon as we saw this property we new we found what we were looking for.

What makes this villa unique

The location of this rolling hills property in the heart of wine country, the beautiful spacious villa, pastoral, mountain and vineyard views, pool, hot tub sauna and the many amenities. Many comment they feel they are in Tuscany and are able to easily relax and take in the local attractions within 5 to 20 minutes. There is no comparable sight in the region as far as the size of the Villa and the tranquil privacy it offers. Leave the property and enjoy Oregon's many wineries and highly rated restaurant scene. Attend a downtown open market with local vendors showcasing their fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, art etc. Come home and BBQ by the pool, enjoying local wines or Oregon Brews and the local fare. Oregon is known for it's amazing array of fresh produce and the berry scene is abundant! The children can safely walk to the blueberry patch and pick while you enjoy the evening by the pool and BBQ. There are fruit trees and fruit available for the picking when in season. You may just want to pick some fresh herbs to cook with from our garden or grab a tomato or two to go along with the fresh herbs. You can also help yourself to the fresh vegetables if they are ready to pick as well.

We are only one hour from the Coast and one hour from Portland! Smack dab in the middle of wine country. We won three best of shows in 2014 and 2015 for our wines. We were number 17 out of over 1,000 wines in the Oregon wine awards. Stop by for a free tasting when you stay at the Villa.

This home exceeded all of our expectations of a first class vacation rental.

Group of 10 friends used this as base for winery visits. The well equipped kitchen, private bedrooms with baths, and swimming pool added to the experience. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Complete Oregon Wine Country Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Jill and Allen’s home was the perfect “home base” for discovering the beautiful Willamette Valley! Their hospitality from the minute we arrived was top notch. The home is spacious and had all of the amenities we needed and more! Jill arranged a wine tasting at their winery, which we really enjoyed, especially as a kickoff to our trip. Allen provided us with recommendations for wineries, restaurants , drivers and even a chef! Having a personal chef come and cook for us was wonderful!

The house was perfect for our party of 8 (4 couples), and we had space for even more! We loved the game room, theater room and of course the pool!

My husband and I are already considering going back to the Methven Villa with our kids for a family trip to explore more of Oregon. We had such a lovely time! Thanks again to Allen and Jill for contributing to another successful wine trip for this group of wine lovers! Cheers!

Villa in the Vineyards

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful few days. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our group enjoyed the property in it's entirety . Walks in the vineyard, tastings at the winery on property, game room, on and on.

The owners were extremely nice and easy to work with.

Can't wait to go back again.

Amazing Spacious Warm Villa for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 celebrating a few 40th birthdays. We could have not found a better home to spend our 5 days. We loved how spacious the house was - everyone had their own bathroom/bedroom. We utilized the gorgeous kitchen and spent every afternoon/early evening in the pool and hot tub. Alan and Jill were gracious hosts making sure we had everything we needed. We appreciated Alan providing a fun and informational wine tasting for us. This home is welcoming and a great location to spend time with family or friends. If you are thinking about booking - don't hesitate - it was spectacular!

Wonderful Home in a Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in May of 2018 and had a wonderful experience at the Villa. Pretty conveniently located relative to Portland if you need to be there (1 hour to 1:30 drive depending on traffic) and also not to far to the coast (about 1:30). The setting is breathtaking and the home is beautiful. Our host was very nice and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us helpful tips about the area. The experience was five star from check in to check out. Highly recommended.

Welcome to our Villa located on the hilltop of our 100 plus acre property overlooking our vineyards. We enjoy spectacular views of Mount Hood, the Cascades in the distance and a beautiful stand of old growth White Oaks.

The setting is very reminiscent of being in Tuscany with the rolling pastoral countryside and picturesque vineyards that surround the property. Our Estate Villa is a full 10,000 sq ft. not including the 4 outside patios. It has two full kitchens, five spacious private suites, each with its own bath and sitting area. We have a bonus bedroom that shares the lower bathroom if needed.There are five fireplaces, two hot tubs, a sauna and home theatre.

We invite you to recreate and relax around our property, swimming in the outdoor pool, hiking, strolls through the vineyard, a relaxing soak in the hot tub.Head to the game room for a game of pool, shuffleboard or foosball. Enjoy a movie in our home theatre. You may also sit on a covered deck or in the Library with a good book to read.

Feel free to come to our winery and tasting room and try our award winning wines and barrel taste with our winemaker or one of our staff. Wine tasting is free when you stay at the Villa.

We are happy to assist you in booking your golf outings, dinner reservations, theatre, tours, private chef dinners and spa visits.

We are located in the heart of wine country within 10 minutes of some of our favorite wineries and tasting rooms along with several restaurants that are perhaps the best in Oregon! We are only one hour from the Coast, the Portland airport and downtown Portland!

You will feel pampered in your room in the comfort of luxury linens, towels and robes. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea out on the deck, out by the pool or in our breakfast dining room.
