CHARMING COZY COTTAGE SECLUDED IN PRIVATE WOODS IN GREAT CLOSE IN LOCATION.

Portland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Green construction cottage with Murphy bed on main level + sleeping loft.

This wooded property is uniquely situated and close to many attractions that include golfing on courses too numerous to mention, hiking, skiing on Mt. Hood, waterfall viewing in the Columbia River gorge, fishing, on nearby Sandy, Columbia, Clackamas, Willamette and Zigzag rivers, rafting, wine tasting, shopping and more. You can stay at Caramore Cottage and go to the Oregon coast and back one day, or Mt Hood (45 minutes) or fishing in the numerous nearby rivers. There are no other homes visible from this green (straw bale) cottage in the woods. Lots of squirrels, deer, owls, birds, trees and ferns. A great spot less than 30 minutes from Portland airport and city center that lets you feel you are away from it all in your own wooded retreat.

If you are planning a remodel in the vicinity and are considering staying in a hotel for a few months, this would be a great alternative. Need to make arrangements well in advance.

Owner/proprietor lives in separate home on gated private prem

Want a Romantic Get Away?: Make arrangements in advance and have flowers and champagne, chocolates or other favorite surprises waiting in the cottage when you arrive.

Guys or girls Get-Away-Nite?: Perfect place to hang out and reconnect with special friends, go for a walk, chat it up and sit around a fire at night.

Like being at a private campground.

In the doghouse and need a temporary retreat?: Quiet contemplation, or need to scream in the woods. Have it your way at this private cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for letting us stay last minute. It was a wonderful getaway for the weekend and much needed. The added touches (wine, chocolate, snacks, fresh eggs) were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed a love hike, breaths of fresh air and that amazing shower!

Thank you for sharing the history of this building with us as well - it made u appreciate it that much more.

THE PERFECT LITTLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I were heading to Portland from Arizona for a week of vacation. We had looked at several different places to stay and this was the one that won our hearts! The place looked perfect for us. When we got there we were blown away by the beauty of the place, it definitely was the perfect fit. It was so secluded and surrounded by plush forests with nothing but green. The cottage was so cute & quaint with everything you could possibly need. Carolyn was so welcoming and adopted us right away! We spent an evening in her basement getting and receiving dance lessons, such a blast.
We hiked around the Columbia River Gorge for most of the week but always loved being able to come home to the little cottage we came to call home. It was the perfect place, warm and cozy. Carloyn was there if we needed her but also gave us our privacy. Gresham is nice and close by and even Portland isn't a far drive. It was so nice to stay out in nature rather than a bustling city. Exactly what we were looking for. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay on a vacation or a better host! She was so good to us, one regret we had was not spending more time with her.
The property is huge and you could go for hikes just on her property and not be disappointed. A great hike to not miss if you like hiking is Eagle Creek, exit 41 on the I-84. It was a beautiful cottage with a great view into the forest. You wouldn't want to miss staying here! One restaurant to definitely try is Bumpers in Gresham/Fairview! We absolutely loved it and we will be staying here again for sure! A most wonderful, relaxing, beautiful, serene vacation!! Thank you again Carloyn!!

CLOSE COZY COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I chose this wonderful cottage to celebrate our 27th anniversary. It was close to home so we were able to go out after work without wasting a lot of time traveling. Carolyn met us when when we arrived and showed around the cottage. From then on we had complete privacy.

The cottage is just a few miles outside of Gresham, but it feels very remote. The cottage is nestled into the trees with no other buildings in sight. The location is very quiet and relaxing, you would never know you were so close to town.

Inside the cottage is warm and inviting, with lots of little details that add character. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, the bathroom was roomy and unique, and the kitchen had everything we needed.

We had a great dinner at Boccelli's Italian restaurant in old town Gresham, just a short drive away from the cottage. The rest of our stay we just cuddled up inside the cottage and enjoyed each other's company. It was a great little place to relax and celebrate our anniversary. Thanks Carolyn!

AMAZING COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
The property appeared as it did in the photos. THIS PLACE HAS CHARACTER! The owner Carolyn takes care of you as if you are like her family. The bed was comfortable, and the movie system netflix was great. This was a great retreat! There is alot of wildlife around the area, and you will probably see the deer and rabbits, and in the evening you will hear the coyotes. This property is close enough , yet far away enough to the cities and population areas. THANKS Carolyn!

AWESOME, COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic place. Carolyn was such a sweetheart and made up feel very welcomed. But, we also had our privacy. It was nice and secluded, but close to the city. In my opinion, it was the perfect place. Not to mention, the rate was amazing for what we actually received. The next time I am in the area, I will be sure to contact Carolyn again.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cottage! It's in a beautiful location - very quiet and relaxing. Quick and easy drive into Portland....got into traffic a couple of times leaving the city, so need to plan around evening commuters. The cottage was clean, and well appointed. Carolyn was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed! We Loved the fresh eggs from the chickens every morning! Especially our grandson! Really enjoyed the fresh berries, from the corner road side stand, and our trip to Mt. Hood, and all those Hood River cherries! Washington Park, in Portland, is a gem...we spent a lot of time exploring there. Thank you Carolyn, for your hospitality!

LOVED OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks and had one of our best vacations ever. We arrived and were pleased to find the cottage to be exactly as described and as presented in the photographs. The cottage is completely charming and peaceful. It was a perfect place to come back to at the end of the day during our extended stay. Carolyn was very welcoming and made sure that we were situated right away. She was a generous and helpful host throughout. The cottage has a lot of privacy, but Carolyn also made sure we knew she was there for any questions and offered many helpful suggestions that made our stay even more enjoyable. She brought fresh eggs,, allowed us to pick blue berries on her property and made us feel very welcome. We also enjoyed the small flock of young hens in a coop just a few yards outside the back door.

The cottage is conveniently located for explorations of the Columbia River Gorge, the Mt. Hood area and for visits into Portland. The hike to Angel's Rest, Sherrad Viewpoint and jazz at Jimmy Mak's in Portland were highlights. We loved our stay here and this would be our first choice to stay for a return visit to the Portland area.

Fresh caught salmon from Native Americans is almost always available in Cascade Locks at the foot of the Bridge of the Gods. Or make the circle in the other direction and go the Mt. Hood first, maybe go skiing or fishing, and end up in Troutdale for dinner at Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplin's! Movies have been made in this timeless restaurant on the Sandy River and our guests always have a window table.
