Forest Grove vacation rentals

Gateway to the Oregon wilderness

Halfway between bustling Portland and the verdant Tillamook State Forest lies Forest Grove, once a small farm town that has blossomed into a thriving suburb for Portlanders looking to escape big city life. A Forest Grove vacation rental is the perfect base for exploring the town's historic buildings and the gorgeous landscape beyond. Whatever your outdoor activity of choice, from hiking, to rafting, to scenic drives, you're sure to get your fill of fresh air. The indoor options are just as great if kicking back with a nice red or a local brew is more your style.

Where spectacular nature meet perfect harmonies

Surrounded by forests that are chock full of hiking trails, a centrally located Forest Grove vacation rental puts nature at your doorstep. Adrenaline junkies will love the rock climbing and whitewater rafting, while birders will find plenty of feathered friends at Fernhill Wetlands. Plan to bring your bike to take full advantage of the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. Don't worry, there are water activities, too _ the beaches of Henry Hagg Lake are alive with swimmers and boaters. Closer to home, soak up the charm of small town life at the regular farmers' markets and annual barbershop quartet competition.

Relax and toss a few back

If your idea of a perfect vacation involves an adult beverage or two, you've come to the right place. With several wineries nearby, including David Hill Vineyards and Montinore Estate, you'll have no problem finding the perfect vintage. The party doesn't stop there _ Forest Grove has its own craft brewery and the state's only sake brewery. Clear your head with some fresh air as you explore the Pacific University campus or stroll through the 19th-century buildings of Pacific Avenue, the town's main drag. Oregon's Skyline Trail is a must-see for nature lovers (foot and horse traffic only, so leave the bikes behind).

Trade in the snow boots for galoshes

If you're not a big fan of the white stuff, you're not alone. You'll be happy to know there's very little of it here. Forest Grove vacation rentals are in highest demand during the summer months of June to September, when high temperatures are comfortably in the 70s and 80s more often than not. You can expect to see rain from September through March, but rarely snow, as the lows generally only barely dip into the 30s. Summer brings a break from the rain and you'll have plenty of warm, dry weather for your outdoor activities.

Don't miss the forest for the trees

Visitors to Forest Grove will quickly see why the town got its name. The surrounding low hills and mountains are dominated by picturesque fir trees. Explore deeper and you'll find hidden lakes with sandy beaches or roaring rivers with rapids for rafting. You don't have to head far to find some truly impressive trees, though -- the largest sequoia in Oregon is right in town. Head east out of town and you'll see the landscape become more and more urban until you hit the heart of bustling Portland in just 45 minutes.
