Living on the river is wonderful. It is so beautiful, private and quiet, yet only minutes from the city.

Very special

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most relaxing stays we have had in a long time. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and seeing the different colors from the trees reflected in the river. The room was beautiful. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our 3 days at Sara and Fred's home...our first visit to the Portland area. Even with the cool temperatures, we were able to use the kayak and firepit in the sensational backyard right on the Willamette River. I can only imagine how beautiful the yard and gardens (plus hottub) are in the summer when everything is in bloom!

The kitchen was fully, and I mean fully stocked... we were able to start each morning with a home cooked breakfast before venturing out to the Portland Saturday market downtown and to the Mt. Hood area the next day. Sara gave us great recommendations for sushi one evening and fine dining seafood downtown after the market as well.

When our son and his girlfriend joined us with their dog, we rented the additional apartment upstairs so we'd have our privacy. It worked out perfectly!

Best part of the stay was waking up each morning to the incredible view on the river! Wow! As a writer, I could easily spend several days working without having to leave...have to think about that!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this awesome review! Just so there's no confusion for future guests, this suite has a kitchenette, where #377569 has the fully stocked kitchen you referred to. It was fun having you rent both suites for your family, and it certainly gave you that additional privacy time without the kids :) We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return.

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived late at night, it was great to have one of the little snacks Sara and Fred had set out. The place had everything we could have wanted. The view from the room was spectacular - just like the photos on this site.

We will definitely stay there again if we ever need a place in the Portland area. It was convenient to the Sellwood and Ross Island bridges.

Wonderful oasis tucked away in a pretty special part of the world

  • 5 of 5

This property is located on the Willamette river in a little community on the outskirts of Sellwood. The deck offers a great view of the river, beautiful trees, a neighboring island (great for exploring), and, on our visit, the opportunity to watch eagles teaching their little ones to fly. Fred and Sara, the owners of this idyllic location, take meticulous care of the property and even better care of their guests. We stayed for almost two weeks and really did not want to leave. We give this place and its gracious stewards our highest endorsement.

Luxurious Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My sweetheart and I spent two nights here at the end of our ten-day vacation in Oregon and it was the perfect ending for the trip. The accommodations are excellent and the amenities far beyond what we expected...not only the room, but the private little deck, the hot tub, the river view, the quiet neighborhood, and the lovely garden all made us feel like special guests. Sara and Fred offer that perfect combination of hosting: as attentive to our desire for company and socializing as to our desire for "alone time". We'd love to go back and recommend it especially for couples who want to visit Portland but take time to sit by the Willamette River and relax.

Excellent!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! Wanted a romantic place to get together with friends and let our hair down for a few days and this place was such a surprise hit! The rooms were immaculately kept, the landscaping was perfect, and the hot tub ... oh the hot tub ... Placed near the water and perfectly situated under a large willow tree, this was the highlight of an awesome romantic getaway. For sure go back!
