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.
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.
Stayed September 5-7, 2016 and the cottage was everything I was hoping for. Everything was clean and cozy- french country- absolutely perfect. The location could not have been better located for my plans- road tripping to see the great PNW. I arrived a little earlier than planned and to my surprise Carolyn invited me to visit the apple orchard with her- along with a up close view of Mt Hood. The next day I ventured to Cannon Beach; again, very pleasant experience. If it hadn't been for needing to complete the remainder my trip, I could have stayed MUCH longer. This was my first trip to Oregon but I will be back.
Thanks Carolyn ( and family).
We loved our visit - perfect location and decor. The cottage has everything you need to cook-sleep-work-and relax. It is close to activities, services, food and entertainment. Portland is a special place and this cottage is a perfect basecamp. You drive up to the door and know it is special and unique.The surrounding area is beautiful to explore and enjoy. Located outside the city yet easy access. Thank you to the owner who is available and always helpful. We will come back.
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!
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.
My husband and I stayed in the cottage and we could not have found anything more perfect! The amazing atmosphere was exactly what we needed and it was very relaxing!
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!

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