THE LASTEST REVIEW JANUARY 2017

This place was as great as advertised, if not better. I came out with a big group of friends (10) and it was our first time in Oregon/the Portland area. We were looking for a place that wasn't in the heart of downtown Portland, yet not too hard to access downtown, and this was the perfect place. The house is very spacious and has a comfortable, welcoming vibe. My friends and I joked that we couldn't even choose a couch to sit on because there were so many. The host was very responsive and had instructions throughout the house on any questions you could have. I definitely will be staying here again, if possible, on my next visit to the area.

"Our 11 person extended family stayed here for a family reunion over labor day weekend and I just can't say enough about how fabulous this Riverfront vacation property was for us!! There was plenty of room for our group gatherings. We sat on the downstairs couches and talked for hours. The several of us watched a few movies upstairs in the large open very nice common area. The kitchen was sufficiently well equipped and the large grill was on the deck. We swam every day in what were the warm, calm, slow moving waters of the Tualatin River off the backyard dock. We rented kayaks for one whole day from the park just upstream of us and explored up and downstream -- all loads of fun, exceptionally beautiful, and exciting. (We found a secret rope swing for more fun!) "

What a gorgeous place this is. The Raccette family had a fantastic Thanksgiving here. We could not have asked for a more beautiful home or a more gracious host. Thank you so much for everything Debbie."

"We had such a great time. We celebrated with a grand dinner, evening of fishing, topped it off with marshmallows around the fire pit. There was plenty of space to stretch out and never felt crowded. We loved sipping coffee on the deck in the morning. Many memories."

"This is a very comfortable home, in a beautiful and fun filled setting!! There are homes on either side, but one was totally hidden by mature evergreen bushes, and the other is largely oriented to ensure a level of privacy. And, while we were there we felt as though we were far from civilization, in fact we were only 10 minutes from Costco, Whole Foods Market and all sorts of shopping! Not to mention, only 20 mins from downtown Portland and all the many excellent restaurants in the area."

Tualatin is an upscale community just 15 miles south of Portland. This riverfront property is ideally located between Portland's two main freeways, I5 & I205, which makes this home 15-30 minutes to anywhere in Portland. Private and comfortable, this is country living with easy access to everywhere.

Riverfront House: This large riverfront property has all the comforts of home. The modern kitchen with granite counters opens onto the wrap around deck overlooking your own private dock. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, pots & pans, even spices and condiments.

The main floor has the master bedroom (with tv) and guestroom with large living room and living area...while the upstairs has it's own family room (50 inch flat screen) and bedrooms.

The wrap around balcony overlooking your own private dock waiting for all the fun summer activities. Swim, kayak, paddle, or just float. There is plenty of outdoor space and ample outdoor seating for meals. You may even want to fish for dinner from your private fishing area. End your evening with s'mores around your own fire pit.

Attractions: We are conveniently located to all the major shopping malls in Portland. Only 10 minutes away is the new and upscale Bridgeport Village along with Clackamas Town Center on the I205 and Washington Square off I5 are only 15 minutes away.

Portland: Big city excitement and small town charm make Portland, Oregon, known as 'the City of Roses', one of the favorite destinations in the West. Portland is situated approximately 70 miles from the Pacific in a magnificent setting between the sparkling waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Portland's historic old town, galleries and museums, Saturday Market, and theatre companies will keep visitors busy for weeks! Its lush green parks are perfect for a picnic or an afternoon stroll.

Also, Portland is just a short distance from Willamette valley wineries, skiing at Timberline Lodge and all of the excitement and beauty of Oregon's spectacular ocean beaches. Portland was built with walking in mind. The short blocks, combined with public art and old fashioned statuary, fountains, bridges and parks offer opportunities for leisure and contemplation for the casual stroller.

Spent 3 days here with my family for my grandson's wedding. Wonderful house, comfortable and peaceful surroundings with a wonder view view. Thank you for sharing this very special space.

Thanks so much Debbie. Our family had a great time. We so appreciated the pantry and the spices and it made it so easy to prepare our meal. Thanks for being so flexible during our final contracting when our headcount changed.

Thank you so much for your gift of this awesome river home. It was the perfect place to host my family for my son's wedding. The home is the perfect location for it's proximity to the airport, Salem, wine country and especially the wedding venue. We had a very peaceful & relaxing visit and will fondly remember our time here. The Lamons

We arrived at the River House for a 5 night stay for our son's wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend and return to the River House. It was wonderful.

There is room for at least 5 cars, so parking wasn't a problem. The living quarters are on the 2nd and 3rd floors, so stairs are unavoidable. As a child we used to canoe and swim in the canal off Lake Oswego and swimming here was pretty close experience to this. But, if perhaps you are unfamiliar with this type of setting, young children should be wearing a life jacket anytime they are within access to the water.

Our stay at the River House was wonderful. Family vacations go much smoother in a house than a costly hotel. All of us enjoyed making smores at the fire pit and sitting by the water. The house suited all of our needs. We would recommend the River House to large groups with children as our party had four children. The location is beautiful and the roads made for great walking paths. Very wonderful experience and many memories were made here at our stay in Portland.

We are ten women who went to high school together – Class of ’69 Albany High, California. River House was a wonderful place to laugh, share and bond. Thank oyu for providing such a lovely and welcoming house.

This house has it all. It’s large, comfortable and very well stocked. The pictures highlight all the rooms the house has to offer. There is space for those who love to read, space for those that love to watch TV, the kitchen is large enough for several people so you have company while cooking, there is a room upstairs to play games, put puzzles together and you have access to a computer to research what to do in the area. The location is great! You’re close to shopping and incredible restaurants in downtown Portland. If this is your first visit to the area and you have a sweet tooth, check out Voodoo doughnuts. It’s quite the experience. If you like to read, a trip to Powell’s Book Store is a must. It’s the largest used & new bookstore in the world. Enjoy!

This home is cheerful, comfortable and fun! Even though it rained while we were there and we couldn't use the outdoor fire pit, there was a wonderful wood stove we could have used. The home had a great view of the river and it was so quiet and serene, yet close to everything you would need to eat, do or see. There was plenty of everything you could need to feel right at home--from pantry items, to extra blankets, to toiletries

Our family stayed in this home for a weekend while in Oregon for a wedding. The home is beautiful, comfortable, and has everything you could need. Debbie is a fantastic host and one of the most throughout we've stayed with. Just a short drive from Portland, this would be a great way to experience the city, but also have plenty of space.

Great weekend with family

We love this place. It was convenient for our needs, lots of room and the beds were comfortable. No problems finding the place. We only wish we could have been there in the summer on a sunny day so we could have really enjoyed the amenities of the property. We'll be back.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We came from Missouri to Portland to celebrate Christmas with my son and his family who live in Portland. My daughter and her husband came from San Francisco to join us. My son lives in a small apartment so we needed a place to stay for the week that was big enough for all of us. We had six adults and two kids and we had more than enough room. The house was very nice and had everything we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable. Usually i dont sleep well when i am away from home but the bed was so perfect i slept better than i do at home. Thank you Debbie for sharing your home.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

For Thanksgiving, my family reunited near my sister's University, and we stayed together in this Tualatin property. The location made it easy to get in and around Portland and the house itself featured plenty of space for our large family, including gorgeous outdoor space. The little things made a huge difference as well. The kitchen was fully stocked with various cooking implements, for example, and the WiFi was fast and easily accessible. Finally, communication with the owner was seamless and we had no problem accessing the property. Highly recommended.

An excellent place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the river.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful weekend at Debbie's lovely property in Tualatin. The house us near several good grocery stores for stocking up on supplies as well as being close to access for the 205 and the 5 for easy traveling back and forth to the city and the airport.

The house is well appointed with plenty of cooking supplies and towels. We found it easy to make meals for our group and to clean up afterwards.

The location was beautiful, quiet, and so relaxing. As a fairly light sleeper, I appreciated the quiet nights far from any street noise. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to vacation with a sizeable group. Lots of places to sleep comfortably and to. socialize.
