About Linda or Tom
We built this custom home on a secluded .5 acre lot in our favorite small town of Milwaukie where we've resided for over 30 years. We love the area and our quiet retreat and have built the Cedar Grove Cottage so that others can enjoy it as well.
Linda or Tom purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Linda or Tom chose Oatfield
Tom has lived in this area all of his life; Linda for 30+ years, a California transplant. We love the proximity to Portland and all it offers, plus being an hour from Mt. Hood and slightly longer to the beautiful Oregon coast via the renound Willamette Valley wine region. This area has everything!
What makes this Cottage unique
We are quiet people and love our privacy which is what this home offers. There are 3 neighborhood deer and several chickens (no roosters!) in neighboring yards. We built our home two years ago and kept the landscaping natural and relaxing. As we're nearing retirement, we were looking for a quiet retreat and have truly found it.

This cottage was exactly what we needed for a mini getaway. Spotless cleanliness and friendly hosts
Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable place to stay.
This was such a lovely place to stay for a couple of days while visiting the Portland area. The owners gave very helpful information before and during our stay. It felt like we were staying in a cabin in the woods, even though it was in the middle of a city. The property backs up to a wooded ravine, and is covered with trees, flowering shrubs, berry vines, and ferns. The gazebo next to the cottage is charming and comfortable. We were visited by squirrels, a raccoon and two adorable, playful coyote pups. The owners said they also see deer, though we did not see any on this visit. The air was filled with the sound of a variety of bird songs. It sounded like we were in a rain forest. The cottage was very clean, and equipped with everything a person might need, other than groceries (and there were some snacks, condiments, coffee, creamer, and chocolates provided, so you could get by with only a few groceries). We would definitely stay here again!
Lovely and quaint
This was a wonderful place to stay. Private, quiet, and comfortable. Had everything we needed and then some. Thank you for providing this lovely cottage.
Was a perfect getaway for our short trip to portland
Although we were in Portland for a sad reason, it was so nice to come back to a clean, quiet and adorable home. Thank you for having us!
We look forward to our return to the Cedar Cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cedar Cottage in Outfield outside Milwaukee and a short drive to Portland. Linda and Tom were very responsive. They have clearly put a lot of thought and investment into the design, finishings and supplying of the single room, window treatments, bathroom, shower and kitchen. The cottage felt new; it was so clean and well maintained. We sought the privacy and the “woodsy” environment at the end of the road; great birds. The steep drive was quite manageable once we got used to it. Shopping was nearby. We look forward to returning. Thanks Tom and Linda for your very kind hospitality. We look forward to our return.
We loved it
The cottage was very clean and nice. It was a private and relaxing place to use as a base for our trip to Oregon. We recommend the Cedar Grove Cottage wholeheartedly.
