Lake Oswego vacation rentals

An oasis, but not where you'd expect it

While "the 'burbs" might not evoke the perfect getaway, this suburban neighborhood just 30 minutes south of Portland is exactly that. After a scenic drive, visitors can breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the locally owned boutiques and restaurants situated on the banks of Lake Oswego. Art galleries and theaters bring new life to the area, too, with constantly changing exhibits, productions, and performances. As one of Portland's most affluent suburbs, there are plenty of upscale Lake Oswego vacation rentals to please even the most discerning of travelers.

Where nature lovers and culture vultures unite

Whether escaping the city in search of small town charm and local hidden gems, or just seeking some fresh air, Lake Oswego delivers. Nature lovers will enjoy the city's surrounding hiking trails and the many public parks and gardens. Culture vultures, meanwhile, will stay busy hopping from boutiques to galleries, or taking in a show or concert. Everyone can end the day with a delicious meal at one of the town's many charming lakefront restaurants, or in the comfort of a Lake Oswego vacation rental.

Food, art, and culture thrive on the banks of Lake Oswego

If someone claimed Lake Oswego invented farm-to-table, you just might believe them. Nearly every restaurant touts its "farm fresh" quality, and those eager to learn more about the local organic and sustainable agriculture scene should pay a visit to the city-run Luscher Farm. Cultural highlights include an outdoor public art exhibit called the Gallery Without Walls, and the annual theater season at the Lakewood Center for the Arts. Visitors looking to get even further away from city life will enjoy scenic drives through nearby wine country, or hiking one of the city's 5 main trails that loop around Lake Oswego.

Don't let the rain get you down

Like Portland, Lake Oswego is known for its rainfall - but don't let that stop you! April showers certainly bring a burst of May flowers, while the summer is your best bet for sunny and dry days that aren't too hot. The fall is perfect for a flash of autumnal color, but keep in mind that a spot of rain is usually on the horizon, too. Winter visitors should use the gray, damp weather as the perfect excuse to hole up in a Lake Oswego vacation rental with an Oregon-made Pinot Noir or a locally-brewed craft beer.

Small-town charm in this lakefront gem

Situated on the banks of its namesake lake, Lake Oswego is practically picture perfect. With sprawling homes nestled among the hills and hiking trails that loop around the town, it's the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Portland. The town has the added bonus of being on the edge of wine country and under 2 hours from the coast, for any travelers interested in venturing just a bit further to explore the rocky coastline of the Pacific Northwest.
