Enjoy the Columbia River Gorge - one block from cute shops and good dining
About Martin Burlus
My Husband and I live in Troutdale. We are small business owners and thought we would give this a try too :)
Martin Burlus purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Martin Burlus chose Troutdale
We wanted to share this townhome with others because historic downtown Troutdale is so cute and so close to nature. We thought others should experience it also.
What makes this Townhome unique
Get away to the great outdoors in the Columbia River Gorge. One block from cute shops and good dining. Take a day trip to the Pacific Ocean beaches or Mt. Hood or St. Helens. First Friday art walk happens in Troutdale - meet and speak to artists and have great wine and food. Multnomah Falls, Vista House and Hood River are close also!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great Location close to Portland and Columbia River Gorge
We loved the accessibility of this house for our day trips to various places in and around Portland. Also, we enjoyed walking around Troutdale and making use of the running paths nearby. The beds were all very comfortable and the baths were great. The kitchen was well stocked with basic items. We would suggest more dishware/silverware. We like to hang out and talk--not just watch TV, so we would suggest adding a comfy chair in the living area and more deck chairs around the outdoor table.
It is awesome house
The house is clean, and it is comfortamble to sleep in after a long day of swim meets
Close to everything, very clean
We had a 4 teenagers and 6 adults for a swim meet nearby and this house was perfect for us. The owner communicated quickly and was always accommodating to our request. The house was well stocked with towels and linens, air conditioned, clean and very well maintained. I was very impressed and highly recommend.
Nice and clean
Loves this house. Everything was clean and the house had all the extra stuff you could need. Great location for a quick trip into Portland or the see the Columbia River Gorge. I would definitely recommend.
Excellent townhouse in Troutdale
Martin's place was perfect for our multi-generational trip. It was far enough from the city to feel like we were at the doorstep of nature, yet close enough for if we wanted to stop at the popular sites for a beer, donut (voodoo!) or dinner (I'm looking at you, Pok Pok). The property has a huge garage, perfect for our SUV and gear. The house has all the supplies you need -- the kitchen is well stocked, there is soap/shampoo/conditioner in the bathrooms, and there was even laundry detergent in the laundry room (a plus given that we had toddlers with us!). I would definitely recommend Martin's place and would stay again. Thanks for an amazing week!
Great place. Very clean except the towels which had strong moldy smell. Nice to have different rooms and futon for separate sets of people. Close access to cafes and restaurants. Also close access to Sandy river beaches and trails. We hung out on two of the patios. The one off the living room is cool and quieter though no view.
The one off Master bed looks through trees over highway to industrial area. Not the greatest view but we watched the sunset from there.
Previous guests commented on these:
Steps to enter - yes a flight to main level and another flight to bedrooms. My 83 year old mother had no trouble!
Driveway- yes short and steep but what a nice garage to park in! We had a Subaru and there was plenty of room to get in garage door. I could see if you own a truck it could be an issue. You can park on drive way too.
Checkin- I had to contact owner for keypad access. Martin said the VRBO app automatically sends it 3 days in advance but I didn’t receive it thus contacted Martin who immediately sent it to me.
Kitchen - well stocked with dishes, some staples... bring your own coffee and tea.
Trains- yes you can hear them from time to time. Also a lot of natural light in the morning in master bedroom. Not ideal for “sleeping in”.. if you are a light sleeper and want quiet and dark this isn’t the room for you. Back bedrooms somewhat quieter and darker.
Overall, really nice comfortable stay for 5 of us.
