Everything in this area is about the beauty of outdoor living. Start your day by stepping out the back sliding doors and sip your morning coffee or take a break in the afternoon for tea while taking in the view on to your own outside deck.

When you are ready to call it a day, you will find accommodations for 6 on the upper level of the home. Each bedroom and bath is fully stocked with linens and towels and an extra capacity side by side front loading washer and dryer for your cleaning needs.

See Multnomah Falls just a few mile East on I84 or Hike Eagle Creek to punchbowl Falls located near the Bonneville Dam.. You wont be disappointed.

THE MOUNTAIN- Want to play on the mountain? The mountain calls to locals and visitors alike. If snow sports are more your style, nearby Mount Hood has all the answers. With four ski resorts and North America’s longest ski season (including 90 summer days), this 11,235-foot peak is a mecca for skiers, ice climbers, snowboarders and hikers.

The surrounding wilderness boasts spectacular trails for snowshoeing – Oregon’s newest winter sports rage – as well as cross-country skiing Year-Round Skiing - Each summer and fall, skiers and snowboarders flock to Oregon's snowcapped Mount Hood, site of North America's longest ski season - an average of 345 days per year. It takes just over an hour to get from a sidewalk café in Portland to the chair lift at Timberline. Prefer to leave your skis in storage? No problem. Just ride the chair lift and enjoy the spectacular views.

A leisurely drive back to Portland affords the proper ending to an adventurous Pacific Northwest day: a pint of local microbrew or glass of Oregon Pinot noir, and a fresh salmon dinner.


Let’s start with one of the city’s main bragging points – its parks. The Portland area is home to an unrivaled number of open spaces (37,000 acres to be exact). Even in the heart of downtown, you’re sure to see more green than gray as you invariably stumble across grassy oases.

About Helen & Thaddeus Deitriech

We are avid snowboarders and just love visiting Mt. Hood for that reason. We decided to let others enjoy our wonderful townhouse at 'DaGorge' during the times we are not there. It is so close to all the metro Portland activities and the many natural sites to see. It is one of our most favorite places to enjoy. We hope you do too!

Heading for the Sun??? If you are travelling in the SW FLorida area, we also have excellent home rentals on Ft. Myers Beach. Ask for info!!!

Helen & Thaddeus Deitriech purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Helen & Thaddeus Deitriech chose Troutdale

This townhouse is truly located in the Gateway to the Columbia Gorge. Just take a drive East on I-84 and see for yourself. We can hit Mt. Hood and Timberline easily from our location while still being part of Portland- One of Americas best places to live. Many of our guests enjoy the many golf courses and water activities during the summer. Come see and fall in love with it for yourself.

What makes this townhome unique

Besides all the fun you can have in the downtown Portland area for outstanding music, food, art and entertainment, we love the little town of Troutdale and its location next to the Sandy river. SO many bridges to see in the area and public transportation is at the end of the block. We are close to Hood River which is a little artsy town that has terrific kiteboarding and wonderful restaurants to day trip through. Lots of places to find/make your own adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at DaGorge house! We had a mini family reunion with 4 of our 7 siblings getting together for fun and lots of pinochle. Attached is a picture of my sisters, Colleen from Tacoma and Dona from Kona, with the best hand of the weekend... 1500 trump, which automatically wins the game.

Thanks again for providing us the opportunity of having a lovely family weekend!

Inviting, comfortable and a pleasure to stay in

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you rent a furnished property and sometimes you're lucky enough to get a well taken care of home, owned by someone who wants you to feel welcome the minute you walk in the door.

We had a lot of family coming from all over so we rented two condos around the corner from each other for our daughter's wedding at Troutdale house. This one (DaGorge Townhouse) and one associated with Troutdale House. While very similar properties, the experiences were very different.

The other condo had not been cleaned. My wife and I arrived at 10:30pm after a long day of travel. Luckily for us, our sister in law had checked it earlier that evening, saw the problems (no clean sheets) and went to work getting it ready for us. The next day the owner had Merry Maids come in and do a quick clean. It was ok. Just ok.

This condo (DaGorge Townhouse), however was a positive experience the day before anyone even arrived. The housekeeper contacted us letting us know she was getting the place ready and asked if we had any special requests. She also mentioned she would be done that day so if we arrived early the following day, we were welcome to show up. My mom and dad were the first to arrive after a 5 day, 2000 mile drive across the country. They're 86 and 83 and have never stayed in a vacation rental. They walked in to comfort, soothing jazz and a very welcoming home. DaGorge Townhouse was done right.

Everything was as it should be and more. You can always tell when a vacation rental is cared for as a home. My dad still can't stop talking about it.

It also turns out that the other condo had stairs leading up to the main floor as soon as you walked in the door, then another flight of stairs up to the bedrooms. DaGorge Townhouse's living area is on the ground floor so that was much better for my 86 year old mom. There was only one flight of stairs to deal with up to the bedrooms.

The owners were very responsive to communication and a pleasure to do business with. We would definitely stay again.

Portland Getaway

I stayed with my family of 8 at the Dagorge Townhome and had a wonderful experience over Thanksgiving. The home was very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped making Thanksgiving dinner preparation a breeze. Would highly recommend this rental for anyone visiting the portland area. Thaddeus provides excellent customer service and there is a very short turnaround time for questions/concerns.

Owner and caretaker go above and beyond to make you feel at home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house! Highly recommend and would happily stay here again! The space was great with plenty of room for our family of 6. The kids loved the board games and comfortable furniture, and my husband and I loved all the special touches and extra mile that the owner and caretaker went to really make us feel welcome. My husband and I both have back problems but slept great on the master bed - all beds seemed to be in excellent condition and comfortable. The location was ideal and traffic always seemed to be in our favor. Ideal for visiting the many waterfalls, downtown Portland (some commuter parking fills up so we drove to Cascades shopping center and took the Max in from there - very convenient), Vancouver, and up to Mt. St. Helens. Kids enjoyed seeing trains during the day but none of us ever heard any at night. Even without a kid in a pack-n-play anymore, I remember always searching through the photos/reviews to see if we could use a closet as a bedroom for a little one and this house definitely has a perfect closet. Cute little downtown walking distance away (highly recommend Ristorante Di Pompello). The owner offered a number of payment options and I nervously used Paypal - owner was very trustworthy so we nothing to worry about. Excellent communication.

Great 3 Bedroom, Walkable Troutdale!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this lovely 3 bedroom in downtown Troutdale. We were looking for something close to the wedding venue, and this was 2 blocks away. The house has great vibes, the master is very large, and the two bedrooms in the back are smaller but both very comfortable. Large bathrooms, large kitchen well-stocked with quality kitchen gadgets, small but comfortable back patio for summer living or smokers, and a nice living-garage space with a comfortable futon and diner-style booth. The owner was a great communicator via e-mail, and provided a very welcoming experience.

Clean, good location, well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the close proximity to our wedding venue first of all but the Townhouse was also very comfortable, roomy, clean and well-layed out for what we needed. Helen Deitrich was very good to work with and made the reservation and payment for our 3 nights very easy. I would recommend it to my friends.
