The Bunkhouse Retreat is proudly owned by a founding Salem family whose history, beautiful grounds, and skilled landscape architecture dates back to the 1900’s. The downstairs space, which is entirely yours, features a bathroom with a shower, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, and basic utensils for dining. While wandering around on the grounds and you might catch a glimpse of the resident pony.
The Bunkhouse Retreat is located in the north end of the 1,200 acres of the lush, natural, open, and wooded area known as Minto-Brown Island Park. Walk, jog, or bike along 19 miles of hard and soft trail through native timber and grassy meadows. Enjoy fishing spots, a paddleboat area, and paved bikeways.
Minto-Brown Island Bunkhouse Retreat is a beautiful place and a tranquil wildlife sanctuary. Improvements have been kept unobtrusive to preserve this rural land, which serves as a reserve for waterfowl and wildlife. Observation platforms along the sloughs provide unique bird-watching opportunities for visitors, and many species call the park home.
