My stay here was perfect. It has a large backyard, while not fully fenced, was still fine for my dog. Parking is a bit tricky but its not anything to worry about. Very walkable area, easy to get to the shops and restaurants downtown. It was quiet, and relaxing and Id recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Carlton!

This was a gorgeous charming cottage. It reminded me of my home town county cork, Ireland. Very Irish in style. I was at home and cant wait to stay here again. I will be recommending this to many. If there were testers I will give it ten out of ten. Thank you for everything.

Lovely old house with beautiful wood floors & lots of windows. Wish the weather had been better so we could have enjoyed the yard more (it must be wonderful in Summer). Comfortable bed, very clean, nice kitchen with a lovely breakfast/dining nook.

Within walking distance of the quaint Main Street in Carlton, this home served as the epicenter for our winery experiences across the Willamette Valley. If you are a couple that loves antiques, clawed footed cast iron bathtubs, wood floors, and a beautiful yard, this place is for you. It is well-appointed, clean, and roomy. Would definitely stay here again!

Ruths cottage was a darling house on the corner in a very quiet town. It had a nice big backyard. We did a lot of winetasting, and there are many many wineries in the area. Not just the tasting rooms in town all through the hillside. A couple of very nice restaurants as well.

The Lifestyle team was very professional, friendly and did everything they committed to do and did it well. From reservation to checkout the communication and technology was awesome. I had special requests for a 35 th wedding anniversary that involved a specific flower arrangement and chocolates. The team really delivered and kept me informed along the way. My wife and I have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over decades. This team was the best by far.
Amazing cottage. Very clean, well decorated, good value and just two blocks from the Main Street with all the tasting rooms and restaurants in Carlton. We loved it and will be back for sure. We would be comfortable with an extended stay there for sure.

Basically did everything on line or texting so not a lot of direct contact but the website is easy to use emails timely and informative about check in and check out location of property, etc. Immediate responses to texts. I did call one time with a question and got a "human" which is not always possible with VRBO or Airbnb, they were super helpful. The special welcome wine and coffee are a nice touch too.
Ruth House is absolutely a PERFECT home away from home. The layout is open and airy with lots and lots of windows. Super clean and we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a bag of local coffee too. The yard is well maintained with lots of beautiful flowers of every color and lots of big shade trees. The whole house has been beautifully remodeled with modern appliances but still has the historical feel with the antique furniture, clawfoot tub and other special touches. The fun part was playing old vinyl on the turntable hanging out in the evenings drinking wine. We loved the location the locals in Carlton are super friendly and this home is walkable to great restaurants and many wine tasting rooms. We will definitely return.
