The People

Since purchasing land in Oregon’s Willamette Valley 12 years ago,  Paul and Maria Wronski have dreamed of opening a pet friendly vacation rental in a historic building conveniently located to shops and restaurants.  That opportunity came last year when they purchased the Frank E. Roger’s Queen Anne Victorian at the corner of Baker and 10th.  Built in 1896 and designated with the highest significance on McMinnville’s Historic Register, the building was in dire need of extensive restoration.  Maria could see the potential of this tattered and worn building and had a vision of bringing the Grand Dame back to her original glory and quickly paired with Cellar Ridge to get the project under way.  For more information about The Victorian on 10th visit
