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 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 bunnies and deer.

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

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.

                                                                We arrived early at the house and were welcomed by the owner which was a plus. Carrie is a wonderful host and very informative as to good local restaurants. The house was very comfortable and homey and our dog loved the back yard. The neighborhood was nice to walk our dog in and the close proximity grocery store was convenient. Thank you for a house that lended itself to a nice relaxing weekend.

                                                                Excellent for families

                                                                Colin M.Bethesda, MD, USA

                                                                The house is characterful, up to date where it matters, was spotless when we arrived. Carrie has plainly put a ton of effort into setting up the house and is very responsive to questions. We were visiting family who had just moved to the Portland area - in fact we booked before they had chosen a house - and this location was really convenient both for general visitor basics (airport, downtown, etc) as well as getting to neighboring towns. We weren’t able to take advantage of the garden but that’s a plus as well. I’d absolutely stay again.

                                                                It was great staying in the property during our visit to Portland. It's not far from downt

                                                                It was great staying in the property during our visit to Portland. It's not far from downtown. The owners made sure we had everything to enjoy our stay.

                                                                Farm House in Portland

                                                                Bryan H.Spanaway, WA

                                                                First off, this is an absolutely darling little house, in a great location, with an amazing backyard (oh, and also amazing owners). We enjoyed our stay there, and it was a great for our family of 5 and our little dog, too. With that being said, we did have a few issues that I think future VRBO renters might want to know about. First off, the house is very old, which means the heating system is not as effective as today's newer homes. It takes forever to heat the house, and when the heat turns on and off, there is a very loud clunking noise from the basement (this happened many times during the night, causing everyone to wake up). We dealt with a lot of ants in the kitchen. The owner responded and said that she would take care of it as soon as we left, so I assume they are gone now. Finally, the shower in the master bedroom makes a very loud squealing noise when the hot water is on (again, I assume this is due to the age of the home. Not that big of a deal, unless someone was taking a shower, while the others were sleeping). Just to reiterate, we had a wonderful time on our vacation, and the backyard is phenomenal. :)

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We're grateful when our guests let us know when anything at the house isn't working properly so we can immediately fix or replace it. The squealing shower head has been replaced with a new one, and sugar ants have been taken care of and are gone. We've called in a specialist to diagnose and repair or replace the furnace. Thank you!

                                                                City retreat

                                                                Cyndy G.

                                                                A very relaxing retreat from the city with easy access to all Portland and the surrounding area has to offer. The home is on a huge lot with great privacy – perfect for family gatherings that include children and pets.

                                                                The newly remodeled kitchen was a dream to cook in with enough space for multiple chefs. Carrie has the kitchen and house stocked well. We enjoyed browsing through the bookshelves – something for everyone with lots for those who have caught the travel bug.

                                                                The house was very clean and the fresh flowers were a welcoming touch.

                                                                Groceries, liquor, restaurants and a brewery within walking distance.

                                                                I hope to stay here again.

                                                                We stayed at this well equipped and comfortable and tastefully decorated home for a Thanksgiving family reunion. There were 6 of us and the house provided us with a newly remodeled kitchen so we enjoyed cooking up great meals. The kitchen was well stocked with nice dishes, glass wear and cook wear. The home was cozy but was plenty spacious for all of us. It was in a quiet neighborhood but well situated for walks or quick trips to nearby stores. Carrie was available for questions but we had few as the instructions were thorough and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this VRBO and hope to stay there again if we are in the Portland area.
