Many bird species are attracted to the sound of our bubbling water feature and bird feeder right outside your window will keep you busy for literally hours.

About Jeanine

We are an active couple that loves everything Oregon! We hike to dozens of amazing waterfalls and parks, ski in the winter on Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachlor, take our boat out on the Willamette and Columbia rivers in the summer, visit interesting restaurants, wineries and breweries of Portland or the Willamette Valley and visit the beautiful Oregon coast, often!

Jeanine purchased this house in 2002

Why Jeanine chose Bull Mountain

We love our location, nestled on a hillside on Bull Mountain that is located close to access downtown but far enough to feel like you are in the mountains. The forest behind us and mature trees in our yard offer privacy but still offers an expansive patio area to bask in the sun. During the winter you can sit in the hot tub and view the twinkling lights through the trees or watch the full moon rising. Our home is located in a newer but established neighborhood with wide streets and sidewalks. Perfect for a morning or evening walk. Or just down the street is Summerlake park where we take our evening walks. We have many fantastic parks for hiking. Forest Park is the largest in-city park Just a short drive we have easy access to the Nike world campus and the silicon forest, home of many well known high-tech companies.

What makes this house unique

Shuttles are available nearby to Mt. Hood ski areas in the winter and spring. We are literally, right down the street and around the corner from gourmet groceries and restaurants. New Seasons Market an fantastic grocery/deli is one of our favorite stops for a quick bite to eat. They even offer wine and beer tasting. An upscale shopping mall, is just a 10 minute drive, which includes Nordstroms and Macys. Just down the hill is Cinetopia, a plush, living room style theater with restaurant and wine bar.There's a new, amazing 'Big Al's sports center for family entertainment that includes a bowling alley. Several fitness centers, 24 hour fitness is a mile away, indoor aquatic center, 1 1/2 miles away. Tennis courts one mile, Bookstores, Starbucks and McMenamins brew pubs. Progress Ridge TownSquare is a two minute drive from our home. Everything you need is nearby. Summerlake is a great park in Tigard to take a morning or evening stroll.

TROPICAL OASIS on Bull Mountain - Hot Tub - Fire Pit - Gateway to Wineries
average rating of 5.0 based on 45 reviews

Beautiful property, quiet and secluded. Truly a tropical oasis in southwest Portland, Oregon

  • 5 of 5

The interior of the guest quarters are beautifully appointed. You will not want for anything. The owners have clearly paid great attention to all of the details that elevate a stay from okay to awesome. So very comfortable and inviting. I would highly recommend this lovely place, perfect and very secure. Nice location too. Out of the city but close enough to get wherever you need to go conveniently.

We stayed for three amazing nights and we absolutely LOVED the unit! It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing, just what we needed! A comfortable bed is a high priority for us and we were not disappointed, the only struggle was getting up! It was so cozy we wanted to stay snuggled up under the luxurious down comforter all day! The unit is so clean, very private and fully appointed with everything you need for a great vacation. The owners are very kind, accommodating, and available if you need them. We can’t thank them enough for making our anniversary trip very special!

A true oasis! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredibly wonderful place to stay! It’s VERY clean and the owners have taken every opportunity to create a homey atmosphere! Every corner of this place has been thoughtfully designed and the owners have even created an extensive list of places to go and food to eat. So helpful! If I ever return to Portland, this is the only place I’d stay!
