About the property

5 bedroom 3 bath home sleeps up to 12. Quiet setting, amazing river views

Our 5 bedroom, 3 bath home is situated in a quiet country neighborhood to the east of Oregon City with amazing views of the Clackamas River. Choice of paths on the terraced lawn to take you to the river's edge. This home was recently constructed in 2016 and the floor plan of the new home was created with the view and our guests in mind. The house has 3 full baths with showers and also a tub in the master, 5 bedrooms with queen beds, and a full futon with memory foam mattress in the upstairs entertainment area. The home will sleep up to 12 with all linens and bedding provided.

There is wheelchair accessibility to the main floor, but it is not ADA compliant. An electric heat pump provides central heating and cooling, and the home includes an impressive gas fireplace and granite counters throughout. Floors are tile and hardwood. There is a large covered balcony off of the upstairs entertainment area for birds-eye viewing of the river and woodlands. The entertainment area has plenty of seating with a futon, reclining sofa, and 2 recliners. A DVD player and DVD library accompanies the 55" LED TV with internet connectivity. Books for adults and children and board games are available for use as well as outdoor sports equipment and games.

The full laundry room includes an additional refrigerator. Gas grill on covered patio off of living/dining area. Property features beautiful river and forest view and outdoor area with picnic tables and fire pot for toasting marshmallows, as well as easy access to the river for fishing or rafting depending on the time of year. Large, private yard great for gathering extended family. We are on the Clackamas River between Milo McIver State Park and Barton Park, and nearly at the end of a dead-end road. This is a favorite location of international fly fishermen.

About Ivan

I am a middle-aged person with a vacation home (and a mortgage) instead of a retirement account. I enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and the privacy of my little bit of paradise. I think you will enjoy it too.

Ivan purchased this house in 2011

Why Ivan chose Oregon City

It is the most perfect private country retreat on the Clackamas River with amazing views of river and woodlands unspoiled by progress.

What makes this house unique

One of the extreme few places available for rent on the Clackamas River. Very private setting and quiet. You'll forget you are only 20 minutes from the city.

Breathtaking home!

  • 5 of 5

This location is so picture perfect! The house has beautiful architectural design and every room is very well appointed. You will find this place luxuriously nestled in the heart of nature. Our weekend women's retreat was richly blessed and nurtured with beautiful ambiance. Every corner of this house is our favorite place to hang out. We took a ton of pictures! We all like the first floor as much as the second floor, spacious kitchen and plenty of supplies , stainless appliances, unique hard wood dining table, big living room area and family room plus the wrapped around big windows. We were so warm and comfortable! We shared awesome moments admiring the Clackamas River.

We are planning to comeback and capture more of this breathtaking experience!

We appreciate our lovely host Ivan and Joelle who are very graceful to welcome our retreat.

Beautiful setting, great house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot. There's a gorgeous view of the Clackamas River, a nice big plot of land with beautiful trees, and the house itself is comfortable, spacious, and well-maintained. Everything in the kitchen actually works(!), the rooms are comfortable, and the whole setup is accommodating.

Beautiful home, Remote location

  • 5 of 5

This home has been remodeled fairly recently and is beautiful inside and out! It sits on Clackamas River and Milo McIver State Park is about a 15 minute drive away; we had a wonderful half-day hike there. Home is spacious - accommodates 12 comfortably. Be prepared for a decent drive to get anywhere from this house; it takes a good 45 minutes to get to downtown Portland and 15 minutes to the nearest grocery. Also be prepared for a long (3 typewritten page) list of rules for the house.

Owner's Response: This home, newly constructed in 2016 is 13 miles east of I-205, 14 miles to a major shopping mall and 25 miles to Portland airport. Anyone familiar with Oregon will realize this is not a remote location but will appreciate the quiet county neighborhood and private setting with river and nature views unspoiled by progress. Our guests receive entry & arrival instructions (1 page front & back) with half the first page being directions to the house and instructions on using the electronic lock. The balance of the document includes where to find and/or use various items and amenities, operating of heating/cooling and gas fireplace. Sprinkled throughout are reminders of our house rules, most of which were included in the rental contract the guest signed when making the reservation. An additional page of departure instructions is included as a checklist for the guest to use when departing. Its purpose is to help the guest avoid charges against their security deposit and to promote a good experience for all parties.

Beautiful home, perfect for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely wonderful and was perfect for a college roommate reunion with babies and small children. Not a single detail was left out in the design and ammenities, from the books, games, linens and well thought out instructions and home guide. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but that's what made it feel like a true getaway. Tammie and Ivan were incredibly responsive and thorough as well! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful house right on the river.
