This lovely open and bright, 1 bedroom (queen size bed), 1 bath cottage is complete with all the amenities you need. It is detached from the house and nestled in the back yard so you and the birds have all the privacy you want. (Landscaping is currently being done by the squirrels) With a fully stocked kitchen, and washer and dryer it is the perfect home away from home. Heat and air conditioning. Smart TV and WIFI. Park right in front of the house. Visiting children or grandchildren? Flying in for business or pleasure or house hunting? My cottage is 15 minutes away from the airport and downtown Portland. Walk to our local volcano, Mt. Tabor Park and stop for coffee or food at our nearby cafes and restaurants. (See "why this property" below for restaurant ideas.)
The Powell Bus #9 will take you right into downtown Portland and the Division Bus #4 will take you to the "scene" on Division. Then you can retreat to the serenity of the cottage.
The cottage is minutes away from Interstate 205 which takes you to Interstate 84 out to the Columbia Gorge. Most hikes are only 45 minutes away and the views in the Gorge are so lovely, ever changing. Driving to Mt. Hood is easy from the cottage by going east on Foster Rd, a lovely 1.5 hour drive through Pleasant Valley, Damascus, Boring, then back on to Route 26 (missing all the stop lights/traffic congestion). Mt. St Helen's is a wonderful day trip, only 2 hour drive away.
