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.

This house is truly the best of both worlds. You'll enjoy the privacy, solitude and relaxation of being in the country . . . while all the city has to offer is only minutes away.
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
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.
We had a lovely stay in Portland and loved the house and garden of this charming old house. The house had everything for our stay and the garden is the crown jewel. Our dog loved the yard as much as we did and he was very safe in the fenced in yard. So much nicer than a hotel. The house was centrally located to my daughters graduation at Lewis and Clark college and down town. We will definitely be staying again.
Great spot for a family. Huge yard! great for kids,warm and cozy home. Close to all conviences. Easy access to fwy and cross town. Would we stay there again In a heart beat !!!
We came over the Holidays to celebrate New Year in a relaxing home near Portland with our 2 kids. Here were some of our concerns:
- The house is old and not well maintained. Doors were all tight and difficult to close/open. We were surprised that the master bedroom did not have a lock on the door for us to keep the kids out and give us any privacy.
- It was the winter with a lovely fireplace (albeit next to the dining room table), but no firewood. We were told, when asked, that there iss a stack of firewood outside and uncovered. With Portland's weather, the firewood was obviously all soaked and unusable. We had to buy firewood. Also, it snowed, and there was no shovel.
- Heat was set to 64 degrees and would automatically pop to that temperature at various times throughout the day and night. My wife and kids were usually cold.
- Showers are very small where it's impossible to pick up the soap, if you drop it, without knocking the door open. The toilet in the second bathroom is so tight against the wall that you can't fit your left leg on the left side of the toilet.
- The TV only had local stations although we were told there was cable. I had hoped to watch football games over the New Year's weekend. I emailed the day we got there about the cable TV (with other concerns) and got no response back on the cable. When we talked toward the end of the stay (because we needed a shovel for the snow in the driveway) and I brought up cable, I was told there's a local package. At that point, she called and got the standard minimum cable package for our last night (after all games and New Year's Eve was over). Never had seen cable before without CNN, ESPN and TBS.
- There was very little lighting from the driveway to the front door. With ice and snow on our trip, it became treacherous and dangerous with a number of us falling or running into things. When the light went out on the front porch, I was told I could change it. My wife didn't want me climbing on a ladder in the snow on a wet wood porch, and we thought that the owner should take care of this. It wasn't done during our stay.
I'd not rented on VRBO before, but was disappointed and my wife now doesn't want to risk it again. We were surprised how few amenities were considered or taken care of. Maybe this is the norm for VRBO, but was surprising to us. There wasn't even any kleenex in the house.
This is our family's 2nd stay at the Farm House and we, again, enjoyed our stay. The house itself was clean with nice bedding and details (good knives!, for one). The backyard is very big so our boys really loved playing ball with ample space to throw. The grounds are also nicely attended which made the house very comfortable considering the heat that week. The location was perfect for us as we tended to do activities on the NW/SW side. It's also great to be walking distance to Fanno Creek for my morning runs.
Wineries, golf, tennis, parks, skateboard park, Multnomah Village, Hillsdale & Beaverton Farmer's Markets.
