Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Feel like you're getting away to the country in this early 1900's-era farmhouse, just 10 minutes to downtown Portland, and 30 minutes to world-class Willamette Valley wineries.

Here, you'll enjoy solitude and room to breathe before heading out to explore the city. You'll be centrally located to make easy day trips to wine country. Sip your complimentary Peet's coffee on the porch swing overlooking the native Northwest front garden. Or stroll around the 3/4-acre, fenced, back yard teeming with birds, frogs, butterflies and sometimes deer.

Inside, you'll feel the warmth and charm maintained in this home, complete with a bay window and oversize original windows, arched doorways, fir floors and a wood-burning fireplace.

Retreat to the master suite, located away from the main living spaces. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows offer a private view to the back garden. The two other bedrooms, each with full-size beds, share a jack and jill bath.

From here, it's a short two-block walk to the grocery store, Starbucks, and neighborhood pub specializing in handcrafted microbrews. Check out the eclectic mix of independently-owned shops and restaurants in Multnomah Village, less than a mile away.

Freeway access is a breeze from this central location: I-5, Hwy 217 and Hwy 26. Close to the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Lewis and Clark College, OHSU . . . and all that is funky Portland.

The house is on a bus line and bike lane. Downtown Portland is only a 20-minute bike ride away.

Wonderful cozy home!

Loved our stay. Beautiful home, conveniently located. Big backyard that makes you feel like you're out in the country. Beautiful flowers and many varieties of fruit to checkout in the backyard. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Portland!!!

Great home with easy access to everything

  • 4 of 5

My family loved staying at this home. It was clean, well-organized and stocked with all the essentials. Fantastic kitchen too. The yard is huge and my dogs and kids had so much fun exploring all around. The neighborhood feels semi-rural yet is close to Multnomah Village and downtown Portland. Fun!

Perfect for our family visit

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with several of our young adult children and their small dog. The house was perfect for spending some quality time together, cooking some of our meals (great grocery store just down the street) and a large fenced back yard for the dog. It was also convenient for driving into the City. My wife especially appreciated the large laundry room.

Quiet place with character

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Portland. This property is a short drive to downtown attractions and has easy access to Route 5.

The house is clean and comfortable with all the necessities to make your stay stress free.

The neighborhood is quiet.

We were able to venture to Mount Hood (east) and Astoria (West) for day trips.

There is a Brew Pub in walking distance that has great pizza and two grocery stores within a mile or so.

Multnomah Village is a mile or so away, which has several shops and restaurants and a killer bakery named Grand Central.

We will stay here again if we visit the area again in the future.

The property was so quentistial Portland

  • 5 of 5

Carrie was very responsive with email. "The little red farmhouse" was just that. Not new and modern. Portland funk, cool and very clean. It was perfect for us. Great location. Grocery store 3 min drive. You could walk ti neighborhood pub. Yard was huge for our dog. We loved our stay. Enjoy

Great get-away near downtown

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Little Red Farmhouse. We weren't there very much, as there is so much to see and do in Portland, but it was wonderful to come back to after a busy day. The backyard is a great size, with beautiful flowers. Carrie had a vase of fresh cut flowers waiting for our arrival. One of the beds was very squeaky, and the pillows could have used more fluff, but overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt we picked a perfect place. The grocery was so close and a brewery was in walking distance. I would definitely recommend it to friends.
