Great stay and nice hot tub beside the river!

  • 4 of 5

It was quite a nice stay at the house! Everything looks the same as shown in the pictures. It was such a treat to have a hot tub experience after a long day of hiking in Portland forests! The only issue is that if you are not a morning person, your morning sleep might be disturbed by your neighbors who are cooking breakfast or doing laundry next door.

Total Bliss!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! There is just not enough I can say about this property. The rental was cozy, serene, comfy and the perfect place for relaxing. There was everything we could want and more in the home. Sara is a wonderful, thoughtful hostess. The special touches like fresh flowers and chocolates on the bed pillows were so sweet. The views from the suite are stunning and the property heavenly. You can't get any better than sitting in the hot tub looking out over the river! My only warning to guests is you might want to change any plans you have made while here because you won't want to leave this piece of paradise even for a moment!!

Close to everything yet, miles from it all

  • 5 of 5

This property is close to everything with easy access, yet so private and quiet that it feels miles from it all. And better than pictured, the photos do not do it justice.

I spent a few days here during a heat wave in Portland. The suite is cozy and comfortable with a beautiful view, comfy bed and central a/c.

It was the perfect size and decorated beautifully. Rather than going outside into the heat to sit in the outdoor hot tub, I stayed inside, lit several of the supplied candles, opened a bottle of wine, and relaxed in my private Jacuzzi tub. I enjoyed my stay here so much that I extended my stay for 4 more days. Sara was very attentive and responsive.

Highly recommended.

Beautiful View of the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Sweet Suites. The view of the lake from our room was amazing and really made us feel like we were on vacation. We had the all the amenities we needed. There was a small frig and microwave. There were even plates and utensils. I would definitely stay here again. We walked around the beautiful garden. Thanks for a great stay.
