Centrally located, cosy, quiet getaway with all the comforts of home and more!
About Therese Tuohy
Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I have lived and traveled in the US for over 25 years, before settling in Portland in 2013. Portland is the city that is most reminiscent of home, and we enjoy sharing it with new friends. I enjoy cooking and baking, and am slowly learning about gardening in the pacific Northwest.
Therese Tuohy purchased this Guest House in 2013
Why Therese Tuohy chose Oak Grove
Our home is centrally located between downtown Portland (by car or the recently opened MAX orange line), and historic Oregon City, close to the Willamette Falls, Milwaukie Farmers market, the Sellwood shopping and dining area, Mount Hood and the Columbia Gorge. The apartment comes with a dedicated parking space, and nearby public transportation includes the Orange line, for easy, parking-free exploration of the greater Portland area.
What makes this Guest House unique
The apartment is a separate building from the main house on the property, and was completed refurbished in 2014, with new carpets, appliances and furniture. The location on the river is even better than we had hoped for and we're still loving it.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Great experience for our first time using VRBO
The place was even better than we expected, the hostess was gracious and the home was very clean with lots of little extras that we did not expect, we will look for this VRBO every time we come to visit Portland
Nice and quiet
Clean and comfortable (except for the heat wave) was fun and relaxing watching the river activities.
We loved staying at Therese's place by the river! The location is central to many Portland activities yet is in a quiet and beautiful location on the river. The guest house is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, very well equipped and even stocked with a nice variety of breakfast foods and coffee. Also very nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others!
The >1250 sq ft apartment opens on to a small garden, and overlooks a wide sweep of the Willamette river, with an abundance of wildlife-viewing and fishing opportunities.
Guests have access to kayaks (with life jackets), an outdoor BBQ, and direct river access through the adjacent public easement. Fishing rods and bicycles may also be available (with a limited selection of helmets).
