Damascus Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Green construction cottage with Murphy bed on main level + sleeping loft.

This wooded property is uniquely situated and close to many attractions that include golfing on courses too numerous to mention, hiking, skiing on Mt. Hood, waterfall viewing in the Columbia River gorge, fishing, on nearby Sandy, Columbia, Clackamas, Willamette and Zigzag rivers, rafting, wine tasting, shopping and more. You can stay at Caramore Cottage and go to the Oregon coast and back one day, or Mt Hood (45 minutes) or fishing in the numerous nearby rivers. There are no other homes visible from this green (straw bale) cottage in the woods. Lots of squirrels, deer, owls, birds, trees and ferns. A great spot less than 30 minutes from Portland airport and city center that lets you feel you are away from it all in your own wooded retreat.

If you are planning a remodel in the vicinity and are considering staying in a hotel for a few months, this would be a great alternative. Need to make arrangements well in advance.

Owner/proprietor lives in separate home on gated private prem

Want a Romantic Get Away?: Make arrangements in advance and have flowers and champagne, chocolates or other favorite surprises waiting in the cottage when you arrive.

Guys or girls Get-Away-Nite?: Perfect place to hang out and reconnect with special friends, go for a walk, chat it up and sit around a fire at night.

Like being at a private campground.

In the doghouse and need a temporary retreat?: Quiet contemplation, or need to scream in the woods. Have it your way at this private cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay last minute. It was a wonderful getaway for the weekend and much needed. The added touches (wine, chocolate, snacks, fresh eggs) were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed a love hike, breaths of fresh air and that amazing shower!

Thank you for sharing the history of this building with us as well - it made u appreciate it that much more.

Cute and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Caramore Cottage while visiting the Portland area. Very comfortable and inviting. We loved the privacy and wooded grounds. The TV programs were streamed, not the usual cable TV. Anyone who is not familiar with streaming on a TV would not know how to do it. There should be information and directions available by the TV. The other issue was that two of the pillowcases for the murphy bed appeared stained and unwashed. Luckily I had my own pillow with me so didn't have to use them! Maybe new pillowcases are needed. Other than those two issues, we enjoyed our stay very much!

Owner's Response: Our first ever less than 5 review. The instructions and original box for Amazon are adjacent to the TV so not sure what more to do there. There are always extra pillows cases in the cottage. Perhaps something was in the dryer that created a stain. Will need to check that out.

Quaint and cozy little gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here so much! It was the perfect size and had everything we needed. Heater worked so good to warm up the whole place quickly and the bed was really comfy. Views out of each window were so pretty and the blue birds were gorgeous. Close to food and great little restaurants and portland was fun too. Thank you again for a wonderful stay and being so accommodating. She even offered to pick us up some wine while she was in town so we didn't have to leave the little haven.

Beautiful, restful, cozy. So relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn was so cordial and generous, making us feel right at home. The property has the tone you get from the pictures and the cabin is cozy, well ventilated, and so peaceful. We had a hard time getting out for the day because we were so content to be there. We will absolutely stay there again!

Just wonderful! The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My teen daughter and I wanted a quick weekend getaway for some school shopping and relaxing before the bustle of a new school year begins. We just loved staying in this quaint little cottage outside the city. It was private, quiet, relaxing and exactly what we needed to refresh. There's plenty of room and everything you need for a sweet home away from home. We've decided to make it an annual tradition and cannot imagine staying anywhere else! We loved it!

Peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We came from Chicago for a four-day getaway just my wife and me. We were very pleased with the location, the coziness and amenities. Carolyn was very helpful. I'd recommend this location for any couple looking for a quiet release.

Between Portland and Mt. Hood. This cottage is ideally situated for anyone who appreciates fantastic geologic wonders. Beginning from the eastern Portland Metro area, witness the fabulous views of the rivers and waterfalls, the Vista House and Multnomah Falls. In one day you can easily travel the Historic Columbia Gorge Highway, circle behind Mt Hood and drive up to Timberline Lodge for dinner. You may want to make many stops along the way for picnics, hiking, photography or visits to the charming shops in Hood River, home of the International Windsurfing contests. Fresh caught salmon from Native Americans is almost always available in Cascade Locks at the foot of the Bridge of the Gods. Or make the circle in the other direction and go the Mt. Hood first, maybe go skiing or fishing, and end up in Troutdale for dinner at Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplin's! Movies have been made in this timeless restaurant on the Sandy River and our guests always have a window table.

Other Activities: Hot air balloon rides, weekly waterfront events in downtown Portland, Saturday Market, Farmers Markets and fruit stands abound, nearby biking trails (Springwater Corridor).

Resting, relaxing, smelling the fresh air of the forest, listening to the sounds of nature, seeing the stars at night, spending one on one time with your special someone.

Golf: Many!!

Ski: An hour or less to all ski areas on Mt Hood. Ski during the day and party in Portland at night.
