PEACEFUL RETREAT, MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN

Portland Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

CUTE OLDER HOME

  • 4 of 5
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.

GREAT STAY - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
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!

SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN STAYING IN THE 'SLAMMER' !

SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN STAYING IN THE 'SLAMMER' !
  • 5 of 5
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!

CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
The little red farmhouse was a charming, cozy little house. The back yard was beautiful and we really enjoyed the gardens. Our grandson loved watching the squirrels in the pear tree and eating grapes from the vines. The house was easy to find and very comfortable. We were able to make ourselves at home, and it was convenient to the vineyards for our son's wedding. The owner left a complete list of instructions and helpful hints. Wi-Fi was available and we were given the necessary information for all of the amenities. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family traveling in the area. The house was convenient to a grocery store, which made it very convenient for an extended stay.

CHARMING, PEACEFUL RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the little red farmhouse. Our children had such a great time exploring the gardens. It reminds me of a secret garden, so whimsical especially with the flowers blooming. I loved waking up to look out onto the backyard. Such a difference to get away from the noise of the city. The accomodations were great. The house has lots of character of an old house. A good place to retreat. We hope to get back again soon to visit. Thanks so much!

THE PERFECT PLACE FOR MY FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
We immediately felt at home in this charming farmhouse. There was plenty of space for our family to sleep and relax in this well appointed home with all of the necessary amenities. It is close to everything you wish to get to in Portland or the surrounding areas, but quiet at night and a great place for an after dinner stroll throughout the neighborhood. We stopped at the family style brewery our first night for dinner, after traveling for a long day from the East Coast, and picked up groceries at the shop another block down. There are more than several ways to access Downtown Portland, so don't fret about the comments that list road construction. We had a map and smart phones and enjoyed exploring the area on our way to the Japanese Gardens (beautiful and serene), Saturday Market (also on Sunday and very fun), the Portlandia Statue, Powell Books, Sauvie Island, the Columbia River Gorge and its plethora of amazing waterfalls, etc. We didn't get to everything on our list and with family in the area I know we'll be back. I hope the Little Red Farmhouse is available to rent when we go!
