Feel like you're getting away to the country in this early 1900's-era farmhouse, just 10 minutes to downtown Portland, and 30 minutes to world-class Willamette Valley wineries.
Here, you'll enjoy solitude and room to breathe before heading out to explore the city. You'll be centrally located to make easy day trips to wine country. Sip your complimentary Peet's coffee on the porch swing overlooking the native Northwest front garden. Or stroll around the 3/4-acre, fenced, back yard teeming with birds, frogs, butterflies and sometimes deer.
Inside, you'll feel the warmth and charm maintained in this home, complete with a bay window and oversize original windows, arched doorways, fir floors and a wood-burning fireplace.
Retreat to the master suite, located away from the main living spaces. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows offer a private view to the back garden. The two other bedrooms, each with full-size beds, share a jack and jill bath.
From here, it's a short two-block walk to the grocery store, Starbucks, and neighborhood pub specializing in handcrafted microbrews. Check out the eclectic mix of independently-owned shops and restaurants in Multnomah Village, less than a mile away.
Freeway access is a breeze from this central location: I-5, Hwy 217 and Hwy 26. Close to the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Lewis and Clark College, OHSU . . . and all that is funky Portland.
The house is on a bus line and bike lane. Downtown Portland is only a 20-minute bike ride away.

This house is truly the best of both worlds. You'll enjoy the privacy, solitude and relaxation of being in the country . . . while all the city has to offer is only minutes away.
Great spot. Quiet, clean and affordable. Proximity to Portland a huge plus. Loved it.
Good clean house. A little out of town, however. Very quiet and great neighbourhood. No joke, probably the some of the best drinking water I've ever had in my life. Great brewpub just a short walk away. Nice to wake up to country sounds and fresh air.
Hosts were professional and very good communicators.
House was as advertised.
Our stay at the Little Red Farmhouse was great! It is an old house, probably built in the 1930's. But, it had everything we needed & more! The completely fenced in back yard was huge & amazing,(maybe an acre) with lots of grape vines covered with all the grapes you could eat. Beautiful roses too! It was perfect for our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, who ran around & explored every inch of it every day! There is no bath tub, but we made due with the 2 showers.
My husband, who normally will only stay in new hotels, actually really enjoyed this old house. We have many fond memories & lots of pictures with our granddaughter playing & exploring this place inside and out. So much better than staying in a hotel!
There are 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms (both have showers, which are kind of small). Nice size comfortable living room & dining room. The kitchen is good size, with a glass top stove (looks pretty new), lots of dishes, pots & pans. There's lots of different teas, condiments, spices & even paper towels, plastic wrap etc. There is no dishwasher, but we didn't mind doing the dishes by hand. There is only one TV, which is in the living room with very limited channels. This ended up being actually good for us! We found plenty of other things to do - games, going for walks, playing in the yard, etc.! It really made us think & imagine what it would be like to live there back in the 1930's. The swing on the front porch added a nice touch, too. Very peaceful setting, to just swing or read a book.
We stayed for 9 nights & would have stayed a few more days, if it hadn't already been booked for someone else. We hope to return next year!
Our family of 6 stayed here for a few days for our daughter's graduation from Lewis & Clark College. It was close to the college and a short drive to downtown. House is on a quiet residential street, but we walked to the nearby grocery store and the brewery/restaurant.
The house is older with character, but with modern amenities. The only negative would be that the showers in the bathroom were rather tight, but that's pretty typical in older homes. We managed just fine and my husband is 6 ft tall.
Our family gathered here from Washington and North Carolina to celebrate my Dad's 90th birthday. The house was clean and comfortable and the surroundings made you feel like you were removed from the big city, even though it only took 15 minutes to get to town! The weather was a little cold, so we didn't get to enjoy the big lovely, backyard as much, but we did takes walks around this charming neighborhood. Grocery and other stores within walking distance as well as a few local restaurants. Multnomah Village is a quaint area with fun shops and local eateries only a couple miles away. Great location and Carrie was helpful in answering all questions. We hope to return soon!
Yes, soooo much better than staying in the 'slammer' (EVERY hotel with heavy self-closing doors that no guest seems to give a rat about gently closing; showers running, toilets flushing, hair dryers blowing, and thud, thud, thudding from above/hallways, etc.). Who in their right mind would EVER want to stay in a hotel EVER again! We LOVED staying in this charming farmhouse in such a nice quiet neighborhood (I'm sure the neighbors appreciated our courtesy and quietness too). Being foodies we enjoyed being able to cook in, dine out in the lovely, very spacious backyard, as well as head out to Multnomah Village Downtown; you must try Otto and Anita's German Restaurant; we ate their twice and thoroughly enjoyed both occasions (Antia, the grandmother, makes all the deserts, pastries and coffee cakes...too die for). As well as, of course, all your others choices in and around Portland. A great central location to explore the magnificent Columbia Gorge/waterfalls, fabulous hiking trails, and wine tasting. Do not miss the International Rose Garden if you are a botanical gardens or rose buff...beautiful! The owner has every little amenity you can think of and was always communicative and responsive. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. We LOVED our stay. Jan, Tessa, and Aunt Donna!
