About Jerri Gillean

I grew up in Anchorage, AK, but Oregon became my home 13 years ago. I've lived all over Portland & Eugene, but my heart is in Hillsboro. I love how easy it is to access nature, but still enjoy the amenities of a small city with a big city nearby.

I have spent most of my career working in High Tech and am now own a consulting company, specializing in project management and business operations. I compete with my dogs in Agility and Obedience and can often be found visiting my friends with horses in the Hillsboro area.

I have an apartment in the back of the house which I stay in a couple of times a month either visiting friends or for business trips. I have my own entrance and own yard, separate from the main house.

Jerri Gillean purchased this house in 2010

Why Jerri Gillean chose Hillsboro

I purchased this home in 2010. It has a unique location on the border of a commercial and residential neighborhood. It has been used as a residence, daycare, and commercial printing business, but it had been badly mistreated. I saw its potential and have been on a fun journey ever since.

I have put my heart and soul into updating the property, refinishing the hardwoods, updating the bathroom & kitchen, painting the walls, updating the electric and plumbing. For my handyman and I, it has been a labor of love.

In 2013, I finished up my personal apartment in the back half of the house with the intent of short term corporate and vacation rentals in the front.

What makes this house unique

Unlike most vacation rentals, the kitchen is incredibly equipped because when it is not rented, it is my personal kitchen. I love to cook and bake and for family events I can always be found in the kitchen.

The working fireplace adds ambiance and a close friend provides me firewood she cut herself with her partner. Please let me know if you would like some firewood.

The bathroom has heated floors and the house is equipped with a brand new state of the art heat pump with AC. You can program the thermostat to whatever you desire.

I have traveled for work all over the US and always miss the comforts of home. At the Linden Inn, it is my hope that you feel right at home and can enjoy your short or long stay in Hillsboro.

Our Hillsboro retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion, recital, birthday party in the Hillsboro/Newberg/Beaverton area with 34 people coming from California, Illinois, Wisconsin, Colorado for lunch at a nephew's house in Newberg, a music recital (I come from a family of musicians: several pianists, a couple flutists, a couple guitarists, saxophone, vocal, cello) in a church in Newberg, then the 75th birthday dinner at a restaurant in Hillsboro. From the photos on the walls, I gather the owners' family were also musicians. Wish you could have joined us. It was wonderful.

We had sufficient cooking utensils and equipment to invite a few family members for dinner on Friday night and two kids built a "teepee" with several bamboo sticks complete with bamboo telescopes to view the eclipse ahead of schedule in the backyard. It was adorable.

Then on Sunday, we headed south to be at the center for the total eclipse outside of Madras. That worked out nicely, too.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 was very pleased with our stay at The Linden Inn. It is very clean, beds are comfortable, and the kitchen has anything you may need. We were out every day adventuring and exploring Oregon and Washington, and by the time we came "home" In the evenings, we were so exhausted and looking forward to our comfortable beds. Our girls, 7 and 4, shared the queen bedroom and loved the toy box. The room with two twin beds was perfect for our boys, 11 and 13. Jerri was very responsive and hospitable. I didn't get to meet her, but she seems to be a very welcoming and kind person. If you are staying near Portland, I would most definitely recommend this home. Quiet neighborhood, close to stores and restaurants.

Great place! Highly recommended.

  • 4 of 5

We came up for a wedding and stayed here. One couple with kid and two singles. It worked out perfectly! The bed I was in was so comfortable and the kitchen had lots of gadgets. There is a nice back yard (even though we didn't have a lot of time to enjoy it). The living room is very spacious, so there's room to hang out if you stay in.

Thank you for the great stay!

Car: recommended

Day to day life in Hillsboro is so simple and easy with all the amenities of both mall and boutique shopping within a 5 minute drive. Whether buying in bulk, buying organic or a trip to the 'regular' grocery store, Hillsboro's relatively light traffic makes it easy to run several errands in just a couple of hours. We have beautiful parks, walking paths, both chain and Zagat rated restaurants. Our award winning professional theatre company is the highlight of our diverse arts program and you can always find a way to be active: rain or shine.

Hillsboro is an excellent spot just outside the city of Portland. 90 minutes to the coast or mountains, easy access to State Parks or a fun night in the city. As the 'Silicon Forest' we take pride in our high tech community anchored by Intel, but also home to Yahoo!, Synopsys, Salesforce and many other high tech companies. Hillsboro also boarders farmlands mixing the best of a rural and high tech lifestyle.
