A magical spot for relaxation and nature
The Mossy Cobbles cottage is the perfect getaway. Deborah has it filled with everything you could need. The bed is cozy and super comfy. The kitchen is stocked with wonderful cookware, sharp knives, and a gas stove. The garden window seat with a view was my favorite place to chill, read, and have coffee. But her garden is over-the-top gorgeous—roses, jasmine, pear trees, ferns, clover, and a small stream— and we got to share it with her. Walking distance to grocery store, excellent Thai restaurant, and more. Loved the location and the fresh eggs we enjoyed from Michaela and Lucy right outside our door. Learned much from Deborah about raising chickens and making a garden thrive. Hope to visit again, hopefully for a longer stay next time.
Truly enjoyed our return visit. The cottage is very cozy and the garden was lovely. Quiet and peaceful.
Mossy Cobbles Review
Beautiful and peaceful setting, clean and well equipped cottage with everything you need, and a thoughtful host who respects your privacy. We loved every minute of our stay here.
AWESOME Place to Stay
What a great place to stay. I had to be there for over a month and can tell you that it was a great place. Very quiet and peaceful.
Super cute but might need some “things”...
We really did like this place. Tucked back in an area of Beaverton that is close to downtown, Tigard, etc., but seems like your away from it all in the woods. It’s right off a walking/biking/running path that is frequently used.
Deborah provided coffee for the mornings and some welcome snacks which was a very nice touch after a long drive to Portland from home.
The cottage has little to no privacy. The walking path that looks over the curtains and into the loft so the only place to change is in the bathroom. Not that big of a deal 9 out of 10 times, but the bathroom is ADA accessible so has no shower stall so water goes everywhere and doesn’t drain quickly. Id recommend bringing shower sandals.
It lacked an iron and ironing board as this was a “work trip” for me while my wife was on “spring break” (teacher).
Other than a few smaller things we needed to side step, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
There is an iron and small ironing board stored in the cottage at all times. There is a folding screen available for the asking. Please ask if you have any questions or concerns.
Perfect little getaway.
Great small place to get some peace in the city. Easy access to everything in Portland, but the quiet of nature surrounds you. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook for yourself. The window seat is an amazing way to spend downtime just relaxing and being in the trees.
This cottage is definitely great for a couple or one person. The bed is very fluffy and warm. It was warm and cozy. The tv is tiny and their is a dvd player. I did not use them at all during my 20 day stay. Parking was easy there is a spot right in the driveway. The path at night is a little dark and you need to be careful especially when it rains it is slippery.
It was a great place to stay a hidden gem in the city.
Mossy Cobbles is located between the west border of Portland and the east border of Beaverton. Here in Garden Home, it is a short walk through the woods to the Garden Home Community Center with a small library, gym, soccer field, playground, and classes. Across the street are a Starbuck's, Shari's Café, open 24 hours on weekends, Ploy's Thai Restaurant, a supermarket, liquor store and dry cleaner. Nordia House, the new Scandinavian Cultural Center is one mile away. Beaverton Farmers Market is open Saturdays from February to November. Next to the farmer's market is a random-pattern fountain noisy in the summer with happy small children, while across the street is a 2-story glass front library which includes a quiet sitting area and 100's of current periodicals. Guests can access downtown Portland and all it has to offer in 20 minutes, barring rush hour traffic. Be sure to see Powell's City of Books, stroll and shop in the Pearl District, the Hawthorne District, and Nob Hill. Portland Art Museum is in the South Park blocks near Portland State University. Also down town, the Schnitzer Concert Hall and Keller Auditorium showcase the Oregon Symphony and world class touring musicals. Many local theatrical events are available in more intimate settings. Ride the aerial tram from the South Waterfront to Oregon Health Science University for a spectacular 180 degree view of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and the active volcano Mount St. Helens. Enjoy a meal at one of the many creative and competitive restaurants and food carts that put Portland on the culinary map. Guests may venture further east to historic Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, or famous Multnomah Falls in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Hood River, Oregon's windy city, hosts world sail-boarding events. Driving west, it is not far to the wine country for a glass of Oregon's world famous pinot noir. Drive further west to the Pacific Ocean for a stroll on the beach, shops, or seafood caught the same day. Nature hikes can be found outside the back door on the Fanno Creek Trail, in Forest Park, on Sauvie Island, and Oaks Bottom. Oregon's old growth forests provide inspirationally beautiful hikes; wily foragers can find chanterelle and morel mushrooms, crayfish and huckleberries. Lovely local gardens include Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, Washington Park Rose Test Gardens, the Japanese and Chinese Gardens, and The Bishops Close (Elk Rock). Children enjoy the Oregon Zoo and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Go swimming at the Southwest Community Center or try ice skating at the Portland Winterhawks skating center a few miles away. Search the internet for the winery tours, walking tours, antiques shopping, cooking classes, rowing, kayaks and canoes, standup paddleboards, horseback riding, caving, and rivers to swim in.
