If you want quaint, inexpensive and love historical homes, this is a great place to stay. Our family was in town for a wedding at Green Villa Barn and we were able to check-in early, store wedding rental items in a nice back room and have space to put together flower arrangements and still have room to live. The full bath is large and downstairs along with one bedroom for those who can't do stairs. Upstairs has four rooms and the half bath. There are lots of bed options (twin, bunk, queen) and room for a pack 'n play for a baby. While the home does not have air conditioning, fans are provided and windows can be easily opened. Keep in mind, this is an old house that has been updated in some ways but still has a lot of original charm. Another great feature is that it's a short walk to several restaurants, a park, and the movie theater.

Our family loved staying in this beautiful historic home in Independence. My whole immediately family was meeting up for a wedding in Salem, and the distance from Salem was perfect. The town was nice and the house is in walking distance from the Main Street where most shops, the farmers market, and restaurants are. The house was clean and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and the living and dining room were great common places. I definitely recommend Denise's house if you're traveling with family and even kids! My daughter loved running around the yard and watching the birds.

This place is so charming and has a ton of character. It is in a great quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to downtown Independence. The backyard is spacious and I enjoyed just hanging out on the porch and relaxing. Denise provides you with everything that you need to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anybody who wants to capture what Independence is all about, the quintessential slice of Americana.

Beautiful home with a friendly, accommodating host. Denise was available whenever we had a question. The home was the perfect place for our family to gather during the celebration of our daughter's wedding. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again!

Defies belief! You think you know how amazing this place is from the photos, but it's more charming, more perfect than you can imagine. It's so close to to downtown Independence, with its delicious food, beers and tons of fun. Walking distance to movie theater. The house is stocked with everything that you can think of, plus comfy beds, a large (nearly) closed in back yard. Oh, and the claw foot tub! Our hosts were on top of everything! Jeff and Diane were the best! Wonderful stay!

Denise and Jeff are very friendly and accommodating. The house was ready earlier than posted which was great since we got to the area sooner than expected. The house has an old time charm to it that makes it feel very warm. My only word of caution to future bookers is that there is no A/C. The windows are split so it provides great natural circulation. However, in the hot summer months, I could see this becoming uncomfortable warm. Otherwise the stay was great and everything that we could expect. I would highly recommend "renting" from Denise and Jeff.

Hello! My name is Denise and I am delighted to welcome you to Independence, Oregon and the Fluke House. Raising 3 kids in this circa 1895 historic home and quaint town brought many joys in the last 20 years. I continue to reside in Independence and am excited to open up the Fluke House to guests. I love and continue to develop the yard and gardens. Guests will be invited to take advantage of the outside seating areas of the home to relax and rejuvenate. I love Oregon and enjoy living in the central Willamette Valley with easy access to the coastal areas, mountains, and cities. At home I enjoy knitting, yoga, and trying new recipes. I look forward to sharing my favorite flavors of Oregon with guests.
