We recently visited for the first time, while attending an outside flea market event. The grounds are gorgeous! We could have stayed for hours just enjoying the gardens & taking pictures of the flowers. We didn't get to go inside, but the outiside architecture was beautiful. The history of the estate is interesting and we'll definately go back to do... More

What a hidden Salem gem! Kay was our guide and she took us all over the house, pointing out her favorite parts as well as answering all of our questions. I was surprised to learn it was only her second full day! The dining room is so lovely, it's just as if the former owners have stepped out for a... More

Strolling through the garden and admiring the beautiflly maintained Victorian home of Deepwood Estate was a lovely way to spend an hour on a resent trip to Salem. It's worth the time to explore.

We lucked out because on the day we went on this tour, we got Sara, who was the person who trained all the guides, so she knew her stuff. She took a small group of us on a $4 tour ($3 if you have AAA) of this Victorian home and gave us lots of history about the home and the... More

Hubby and I have gone to two events in the last year - their Jazz and Wine Festival - and both time were just such fun. Flowers, trees, gazebos, birds, terraced trails through forest along a stream! what more could you ask for in a garden?

We didn't make it in time to walk through the historic building, the torus run from 9am to 12 noon on the hour; the gardens were quite beautiful. This would be a beautiful place to hold a wedding, if you don't mind the highway noise in the background. The gardens and nature paths could use a bit more upkeep. It... More

A free guided tour is scheduled a couple of times a week. It was great to learn about native Oregon plants. There was a plant sale in the greenhouse where you could buy native Oregon plant starts. It was also nice to walk around the property to see a few other garden areas.

It was built in 1894 in a Queen Anne Victorian style. It has extensive gardens on four acres of property. You climb about eight steps to get to the impressive... More

The perfect event to celebrate the holiday season. The historic home is all decorated for the holidays and the tea is lovely. The tea is hosted by a team of friendly volunteers and is well organized. The food is generous and champagne is offered as well as tea. A tour of the home follows the tea. Because it is a... More
