Our second visit...

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to Portland and were happy to find the 1908 House available for our use. Thanks again for a wonderful place to make a "base" camp for our Norther adventures. Once again it was stocked to the hilt with all that we could possibly think of. We love your kitchen and the fact that you have included all we need to prepare our meals at the house. And what a great BBQ! We sat by the firepit in the rain! It was just too nice.

See you again in the Spring.

Very clean, very equipped, wonderful for children!

  • 5 of 5

We used the outside kitchen area and fire pit and loved the atmosphere! The kitchen area was well organized. The beds were comfortable, and the set up was advantageous for putting little ones to bed, i.e. One family in the finished basement, one family on the second floor. Our 3 grandsons loved the bunk beds! The 2 arcade games were a big hit! Air hockey too! Finally, the house has a real historical feel and so quaint!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for out of town relatives and we couldn't have been happier with it. Much more comfortable then motel rooms. Lisa has thought of everything to ensure our comfort. The family enjoyed the backyard and the game room. We would definitely rent this wonderful home again. Thanks!

Perfect HomeAwayFromHome for our Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We have four local PDX families and three families that live out of state, so this was the perfect hub for our gang. We had something for everyone. Lisa equips the home with just enough familiar items and odds and ends to make it feel like you are able to relax.

Thank you, Lisa, for helping us to unite our loved ones. The 1908 House was very special. My husband celebrated his 60th and our grandson his 6th (on the same day). We also managed to schedule the solar eclipse while we were there (I had to do something extra special for his 60th!).

When we returned from our adventures, we felt that 'ahhh' that you feel when you are coming home. Thank you! We will be back!

About Lisa Dodson

I have been a flight attendant for 25 years and have traveled extensively - I have stayed in every imaginable type of vacation rental. I feel that I have created a home that will exceed any travelers expectations.

Lisa Dodson purchased this house in 1996

Why Lisa Dodson chose McLoughlin

I love historic homes and places and Oregon City - 'The End of the Oregon Trail' being located just minutes from downtown Portland was perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you Thanl-you Thank-you! Everything was perfect. You have thought of EVERYTHING to make anyone feel right aat home in "your" home! I had planned on unpacking and going straight to the store to pick up "necessities" - but you had everything we needed already here. The kids were so excited about the "stocked" fridge in the game room! We used the bon fire, the hot tub, and the game room! I couldn't believe you even had a GPS for us to use. (I could have left mine at home) We even had our family come out to visit one day - we were so proud to show off your beautiful home! We especially enjoyed sitting on the front deck in the sunshine. I was so lucky to find your house to rent. Thank you so much for sharing it with our family - I am SO happy we did not end up at a hotel! It was perfect!
