About Stephanie Tolk
We are a family of four living in Portland, and we're happy to host you in our vacation home. Stephanie works in the nonprofit world; Scott is in engineering, and daughters Penelope and Mira spend most of their time giggling, weaving tales including woodland fairies, kings and queens, and magical creatures, and getting to know the mosses and trees around Hummingbird Lodge. We were thrilled to purchase Hummingbird Lodge in March 2017 and provide a place for our girls to run and explore, to augment their experiences as city kids. We are a traveling family, and while Scott and Stephanie, pre-children, have been as far as Cambodia, Mali, Brazil, and more, Penelope and Mira have had their first couple of journeys to Airbnb homes in Mexico. We dream of taking them much farther. We hope you enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Hummingbird Lodge, and we look forward to hearing about your experiences. Stephanie, Scott, Penelope, and Mira

What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the land before we fell in love with the house. The 100+ tall trees tower over visitors, and they provide homes for blue jays, squirrels, deer, bats, chipmunks, and of course, hummingbirds, all of which we see quite frequently. Beyond the porch lies a meadow filled with edible berry bushes like huckleberry, blueberry, and salal. The southern and western part of the property is thick with forest in which we've begin cutting narrow trails. Eventually, we'll put in small seats, more hammocks, and cozy spots to encourage solitude and contemplation among the Douglas fir and cedars.

Hummingbird Lodge is beautiful

So glad you enjoyed your stay, Matt, and we'd be happy to have you back!
Great cabin, quiet. Best sleep in a long time.
Spring break 2019
We very much enjoyed staying at Hummingbird Lodge. It was just the right amount of seclusion & convenience. With abundant snow still on the ground & warming temps we enjoyed seeing the snow melt back a little each day. The place felt private enough to sleep with the windows uncovered at night & wake with the natural daylight. The hot tub was perfect after skiing each day & you can hear moving water from one of the nearby water sources. We spent cozy nights by the fire reading books on the couches. I was skeptical of drinking well water at first, but it was actually good. I wish I could have some everyday...I read it has heath benefits! We loved wandering around the property & noticing all the sweet details. Very good experience!
Wonderful place to relax
Wonderful. Clean quiet had a very nice time
Tranquil setting. Well maintained and clean.
Beautiful and serene setting! Cabin was very well equipped and the layout was ideal for the seven of us. Plenty of videos and board games especially for young children. Surrounding property is spacious and allows for everyone to wander off and explore.
Thank you for the kind words, Barbara, and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay!
