Enjoy a peaceful stay in part of a 1938 cottage one block from Englewood Park. The neighborhood is an easy mile or so by foot, car, bus, or pedicab to the Oregon State Capitol, Willamette University and downtown Salem and a half mile to the Oregon State Hospital. Consider flying into Portland, taking the Hut Shuttle Bus to the Salem Airport, riding in a pedicab, or your host's car, to your charming provisional Salem home. Transportation is available from the nearby Amtrak station as well.

This was our second stay & we liked it even more the 2nd time around. Many artistic touches, it's obvious that Ruth puts thought & care into the space. As you pull up to the cottage you'll see a wood deck with antique furniture, art & mood lighting. Once inside you'll be charmed…

Exactly what I hoped for using air bnb. Friendly people small space that is clean and full of good art and local info readily available. Kind of wished Ruth was home because she sounds great from the reviews. The process was simple and well explained. WAY better than a hotel for …

Had a great experience at Ruth’s place! She was very welcoming and the rental was very clean. The bed was super comfy and she even had breakfast foods for us! She went the extra mile with books for our daughter to read. Highly recommend!

Hows was cute and clean. Lacked a kitchen but since it was just for the night, that was fine. Felt a little lack of privacy but Ruth was very nice and we felt safe. Back room was very cold unless you left the door open.

Response from Ruth:
Gee Jennifer, my ad doesn't mention a kitchen but says it has a mini kitchenette so I"m surprised you expected a kitchen. It also states that the rooms are connected to the main house and that sound can be heard between the airbnb and my house. What more could I have done to describe the accomodations? More importantly, what felt like a lack of privacy? I'd appreciate your help with these questions. Sorry you felt very cold. I would have been glad to give you the electric heater had I known you were uncomfortable. I think I"d mentioned you could text or call at any time if you needed anything. Wishing you had had a better experience. Ruth
