Our home and business is Territorial B&B& Barn and Synergy Stables, located in the heart of Oregon wine country. We began as a family owned stable, focusing on beautiful gaited Paso Fino Horses and natural horsemanship, established in 2007. Beginning in 2012 we established a bed and breakfast with guest rooms in our cozy farm house, and RV/horse trailer parking and a barn available for folks traveling through with or without horses. In the fall of 2015 we added a great new travel trailer guest house for "glamping" on the farm.

Owner Mary Schoenheit grew up on a farm in Missouri and has been passionate about horses and country living all of her life. Even as a child, she dreamed of owning a horse farm one day. As a young adult, life took her to Alaska, where she spent 34 years focusing on a professional career in the public and nonprofit sector and raising her family.
When the younger children were launched, Mary joined her older daughter Jerri in Oregon. In partnership with Jerri, she bought her farm near Junction City, OR, and together they established Synergy Stables. Mary continued her career in the nonprofit industry in Oregon, and then moved on to the wine industry, which became a new passion.
In 2012, Mary refocused to bring together her love of horses and wine and country living all together with the launching of Territorial Bed & Breakfast & Barn.

Near or far, Mary's children are her support and inspiration in this family business. Daughter Jerri lives on the farm and launched a successful consulting company in 2015, focusing on project management. She is a dog trainer in addition to enjoying the horse passion and supporting Mom with farm and B&B management. Son Anders, a recent graduate of the University of Oregon, launched his IT career in Eugene at a software company and recently made the move to a new company in Seattle. Younger daughter Julia made the ultimate adventure leap to living in Australia. She has begun her career in psychology, and looks forward to marrying her Australian fiance Philip in 2017, along with making plans for graduate school. She keeps her family connected to the excitement of living "down under."
Please bring your family and your friends and join our family on the farm.
