Feel the nostalgic vibe as you relax at Wimsey Books Cellars, our vintage 1940s apartment in the daylight basement of our old farm house.


We are located in an Old Town DIVERSE neighborhood of Newberg, within walking distance of several quality wine tasting bars, parks, eateries, George Fox University and Naps Thriftway [with its awesome selection of craft beers.]


We have created a haven of time travel to the Oregon of the 1940's (when our old farm house was built), you will feel that you are stepping back into homey, comfortable times with mid 20th century decor all around.

Our 1940's Decorated Retro Apartment is a unique experience in store for you, perfect for the anniversaries, a birthday getaway, wine tasting weekends & for those who love "off the beaten path" experiences. Let us know if it is a special occasion for you, we want to make it memorable in every way.

We have restored the vintage vibe of the apartment with many classic retro items, but still have the connivence of WiFi, microwave, refrigerator, etc. So you don't have to suffer through the 1940's, just enjoy it!

When you come you will have your own separate entrance to your basement apartment. ***There are stairs down, so please note that. ***

Our "Wimsey Book Cellars" apartment is roomy with a fully functioning kitchen, dining room/living room space.

One point to note is the small bathroom (see photos) with shower and toilet, THE SINK IS OUTSIDE THE BATHROOM AND IS PART OF THE KITCHEN DIVIDED SINK (while this is unusual these days, keep in mind that in the 1940's this was not an uncommon use of small space; this bathroom arrangement reminds me of a fire-watch cabin that my brother worked in for the forestry department in the early 1960's, super efficient!)

The bedroom is roomy with a double-bed (meaning a full size bed, not a queen size) with a lovely retro frame and many 40's accents.

The entire apartment is richly decorated in 1940's style, since we wanted to honor our old house, built in the mid 20th century. Be prepared for a time-warp experience of big band music, black and white movies, best books and magazines of the 40's and rooms full of retro style ambiance, but as one guest said, "not too kitschy or precious, more real."

Guests are welcome to enjoy the hop-shaded [in season] patio located on the entrance side of the house with the lawn furniture provided. In the late fall and winter we are always busy with garden projects for the coming spring and you will find us trimming, raking, winterizing etc. so as to have an improved yard the next year.

Our "lawn in the rough" [has weeds as we do not use herbicides or pesticides] in the back yard is available with a fire pit. During the summer lawns are not usually watered in an effort to conserve water. BUT we do have a garden with many herbs, fruits, veggies which we are happy to share. Plus their beauty in being watered and loved distracts from the dry lawn. With water shortages throughout the world we cannot justify watering the lawn.

The apartment is non-smoking [including vaps and hookas] although you should feel free to puff away at a courteous distance from the outside entrance.

Please do not bring firearms or weapons on the premise or use incense, candles, or any other open flames inside.

Our house is older as is our funky retro apartment and not baby or child proofed, we ask for child safety that there be no children under 12.

Though the apartment is separate from our living space, we live a quiet life and would expect you to be sensitive to that just as we will strive to be considerate of you. Our living room floor above the apartment is wood so there is some ambient sound that emanates therein when it is traversed, even if ever so lightly.

Please refrain from having any visitors on the premises unless prearranged with the host. Please ask. Communication is very important to us. PLEASE NOTE: We will be attaching an additional fee for your stay if you have guests without prior written email or text permission from the hosts.

We would ask that you join us in recycling and conserving the world's
precious and finite resources.

Please arrange your check in time with us 24 hours in advance so we can be home and greet you. We will be delighted to give you a quick tour of our distinctive RETRO APARTMENT and hand over the keys. Our check in times are from 3-8pm, outside of that window please make special arrangements.

PLEASE NOTE: If arrangements are not made there will be an additional charge for late check-in of $25.00. Any check in after 11pm will have an additional $35.00 charge unless pre-arranged and waived in an email or text by the hosts.

Our stay at Sandi and Tim’s AirBNB was great - the place was quiet, clean and cozy. The basement apartment had everything we could ever need including a full kitchen, movies, books and games; our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer to take advantage of it all. Our hosts greeted us warmly upon our arrival to give us a quick tour and offer their assistance for anything we might need for our stay – they even had muffins made especially for us (Gluten Free for me). We will definitely be back to stay here in the future and would recommend it to any and all!

Very comfortable and well equipped place. Great location for winery visits and Northern Oregon. The 1940-50s theme was really good and the literary theme was also very good. Well equipped, well kept. Easy to recommend.

Sandra and Tim have the cutest place! We would definitely stay there again. The shower was average sized and using the kitchen sink was no biggie. The ambiance is well worth it. They had raspberries they had just picked and everything and beyond what we needed to make breakfast. I couldn't say enough nice things. We put on one of the CD's they had available and went with the 1940's vibe!Thank you so much.

Our stay was just perfect and Sandi & Tim are wonderful hosts. The space is so creative in its 1940 decor. They go above and beyond with little special additions that just make you feel so welcomed.

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The rooms are decorated in a really fun (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)'s decor which takes you back in time and makes you reminisce to simpler times. The room had all the amenities you could need and was very clean. Lastly, it was ideally located in wine country and the hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and kind. We highly recommend a stay here to other Airbnb travelers!

Very friendly and hospitable hosts. You'll stay in the basement with poor ventilation. You shave and wash your face in the kitchen sink.

Thank you, Thanh and Robert, for making it even more clear to future guests that, as our listing states, our apartment is in the basement and that the very small bathroom has no room for a sink. As to the ventilation issue, we have never had complaints but will certainly apprise future guests of the fans and the windows that open. May all your future Airbnb adventures be lovely.

We are from the Willamette Valley in Oregon near Portland. We are a couple with three grown children so we have a bit more freedom to travel now. We love books, like to garden (in that we appreciate flowers and veggies, but hate weeding), and Tim writes a bit.
