Beautiful Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Really very difficult to sum up all the fine qualities this lovely Cottage provides. Beautifully decorated and appointed with extremely comfortable bedding and quiet peaceful surroundings within a short walk to downtown Lake Oswego and beautiful trails within Tryon State Park. Suzie is a wonderful accommodating hostess. We have stayed with her twice during our visits to see our grandchildren. Very, very comfortable inviting atmosphere in a peaceful tranquil setting.

A Five Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, state-of-the-art cottage. It is impeccably clean, decorated beautifully and is very comfortable. The owner has provided luxurious amenities and thought of all you might need to have a memorable stay. The location is wonderful for visiting local towns and is a quick drive to Portland. We will definitely be back!

Nicely located, perfectly appointed with everything we needed and more! This host takes so much pride in her cottage and it shows. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, no question about it. If it's available for your dates, you'd better book it before it's gone!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage seems much larger inside than the square footage would suggest. It's light and bright with many skylights and a soft color scheme that brightens the rainiest days! Susan takes great pride in keeping the cottage immaculate; it always seems brand new when we walk in. Clean towels and sheets are plentiful and Susan will even change your bed if asked. We never do, but it's nice to know it's an option. We've stayed here twice for a week at a time while visiting our grandchildren and enjoyed every minute!
