Spacious 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath Elegantly Furnished Creekside 1895 Farm House
About Ellen Williams
My husband Larry and I have been in the cattle business since 1972. We are active members of the Douglas County Farm Bureau and enjoy our relationships with our "fellow farm friends". We are members of the Chamber of Commerce and support projects and community activities within Douglas County. I am a former school teacher and have always enjoyed being creative in the classroom and life. This historic house has been a new outlet for creativity.
Ellen Williams purchased this Farmhouse in 2013
Why Ellen Williams chose Roseburg
We purchased this farm house and 80 acres in January 2013, because it was continuous with the 730 acres of ranch property that we already owned. We did not want a housing development next door to our ranching operation. We sold a ranch in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004 and moved our cattle operation to Roseburg. Our home is a half mile south of the Pearce home. The Pearce home was terribly neglected, and the restoration project has taken two years. It has been a creative endeavor and a labor of love.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This home is uniquely situated just outside the Roseburg city limits on the north side of grazing lands and forested areas. A two mile drive west from the farm house on Douglas Avenue brings you to the historic downtown of Roseburg. Brix 527, Salud, and Dino's Ristorante are all great places to eat downtown. Day trips east to the beautiful waterfalls of the Umpqua River or west to the coast are easily made with the Pearce House as your home base. Winery tours or fishing expeditions are things that even/especially the locals enjoy. Graffiti weekend (old car event) and the County Fair attract many visitors to Roseburg. Umpqua Community College and Umpqua Actors Community Theatre provide excellent theatre experience throughout the year.

The house was charming and the property is so beautiful. We were able to pick wild blackberries and enjoy breakfast outside on the deck.
My only complaint is that there were cobwebs all over. Mostly outside, but several inside as well.
Perfect Roseburg Retreat
We stayed here to see my Dad and be in Roseburg for the fun Graffiti event.
We couldn't have stayed in a more perfect place. It was clean. the Owner stopped by to check in on us and was very kind. The location was convenient and the ambiance was fun and historical! We would love to stay here again when we come to Roseburg! Thank you!
We had a lovely stay! The space was clean, comfortable, and perfect for our needs.
Great Get Away
Had a wonderful time. The house is amazing and beautiful. Loved the landscape also.
Wow best VRBO yet!
This was such a great property to stay at. We didn’t even use half of the house it seemed like because the porch was calling our name. We had lots of room for 7 with room to spare. Had everything we needed and more.
Great Graduation Weekend with Ellen
I booked this wonderful house for my family over graduation weekend. It was a great place for them as it allowed them to be together and re-connect since they are all from different parts of the country.. No hotel could have done that. Thank you so much Ellen!
This home is centrally located for day trips west to the Oregon coast or east to the many waterfalls and fishing sites on the Umpqua River. Hikers, cyclers, white-water rafters, and kayakers are drawn to these scenic areas of Douglas County. Diamond Lake and Crater Lake are popular destinations for day trips. There are many wineries in the Umpqua Valley. Wildlife Safari is a short trip south of Roseburg in Winston. We find it exciting to live in an area where so many outdoor activities can be reached without being mired in heavy traffic to get there.
