About Dale Donovan
I was born and raised in Corvallis. After high school, I spent 4 years in the military. Upon discharge, I enrolled and graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in art. I purchased the farm from my parents and built my studio and display room here. I have been a practicing ceramic artist since 1969. My wife and I now manage the farm, pottery and rentals together.
Dale Donovan purchased this House in 1953
Why Dale Donovan chose Corvallis
My mother's family came to Oregon via covered wagon in 1852. They settled in the Willamette Valley. In 1936 My father Arthur, moved from the mid-west, married my mother Lucille and they settled in Corvallis, purchasing the farm in 1953. I bought the property from my parents when I graduated from college. I planted Christmas trees and I have been selling pottery and trees here since.
What makes this House unique
Though the city has grown up around us, the tree farm remains a peaceful refuge. There is a ring of 200 year old Oregon white oaks around us. And almost every evening in the summer, a beautiful wind from the Pacific blows across the valley and through our oaks and firs.

Great Hosts and Property
Came to Corvallis for the weekend to visit the OSU campus and attend a Beavers game. The Donovan's were great hosts and very helpful with suggestions about the area and how best to get around campus which is only a few minutes away. The property was very quiet and relaxing, a perfect place to stay for our family.
We are glad you had a relaxing stay. Fall is beautiful in Corvallis; we love to bike around the campus this time of year and admire the autumn colors. Hopefully we can serve you again on another visit.
Peaceful place close to town
Perfect place for our weekend getaway - comfortable and peaceful, close to town but feels like you are away from everything. Kitchen well stocked and beds are comfortable. Lovely wood floors feel good under your feet. Beautiful large updated bathroom. Gorgeous grounds. Hosts are very kind and accommodating. We would come again.
We are so happy you had a comfortable, quiet stay on the tree farm. We are glad you were able to visit the Fall Festival and take time for a hike while you were here. Hope you enjoy the mug and bowl you purchased from my display room. Best regards, Dale and Peggy
Large Flat in combo with farm house stay
This was the perfect addition for our large group in the farm house. We were in Corvallis for my son's wedding, and this unit helped accommodate our large group.
We are so glad you had a comfortable stay on the farm. Congratulations on the marriage of your son. Hopefully we can serve you another time. Dale and Peggy
A Lovely Stay!
Dale and Peggy were wonderful, welcoming hosts. The home is lovely, large, and has all the needed amenities. Very well located in Corvallis, and what a treat to be amongst the Christmas trees. Dale’s beautiful pottery is an added plus!
So glad you enjoyed your visit. Summer in Corvallis is hard to beat. We look forward to seeing you on another visit. Dale and Peggy
Our stay at this property exceeded all expectations. Dale and Peggy are wonderful hosts, the property is wonderful- to walk out the front door and see the greenery is absolutely healing.
We would recommend anyone to go visit. We would go back again in a second ❤️
We are so glad your family enjoyed your stay. It is a pleasure for us to meet new people and share the farm and pottery with others. Thanks for your kind words. Dale and Peggy
This is a beautiful home just minutes from downtown Corvallis but with the feel of a country retreat! Clean, quiet and comfortable with helpful and friendly hosts--we look forward to an opportunity to come back and stay here!
Thanks for your kind words. We enjoy the quiet of the farm too. Dale
