We LOVED staying here! The house is warm, inviting and has plenty of room. The surrounding grounds are BEAUTIFUL!! My son loved wandering around the grounds, finding hidden treasures everywhere... & he loved the outdoor ho tub!! Lush gardens, interesting paths and beautiful tress/plants everywhere. We slept in the Captains Room & found it very comfortable. The room is warm, cozy & inviting & the bed was very comfortable. The house has all the amenities you would need & easy to get to. The owners could not be more lovely. I highly recommend a stay here!!
We spent two wonderful nights here. It was very comfortable for four adults and a couple of kids. It is so serene, peaceful and beautiful. You could wander the grounds all day and always see something that you did not see before. The owners are very special hosts who make sure your every need is met. A truly enjoyable experience. Thank you
How did I get so lucky as to choose this special property for a family vacation.
My Granddaughter chose Portland but somehow I found the perfect rental for our stay. Well, serendipity is one of my favorite words, We began and ended our days in this cottage that vibrates with warmth.. The cottage reflects the owner's eclectic personal taste and is a treat for the eye. There were four of us and we each seemed to find our own personal space. There are two bedrooms and a pull out queen sofa bed in the living room. My granddaughter chose the bed in a window and found it just right for her. The kitchen is fully equipped and there was coffee, bread, fruit and much more in the refrigerator and cupboards.
We all agreed that we were in a special place and wanted to stay longer. My daughter-in-law said we had found some enchanted cottage. My only regret is that we were unable to meet the owners as they were out of town during our visit . I can only imagine how welcoming and unique they are to have created this refuge of tranquility.
If we could rate Farmhouse Cottage higher than 5/5, we would! It has a beautiful character and feel to the cottage, and the garden setting is superb. The beds were quirky, but comfortable, and exactly as described. Everything to make you feel at home has been supplied, including coffee and condiments.
The house is in a very quiet treed neighbourhood, with a small forest to walk in at the end of the road, and a gourmet supermarket to shop in just a few streets away.
But it is the owners that really made our visit memorable. We were visiting Oregon from Australia to view the total solar eclipse, and were unsure exactly where to best view it from. Sally and Jake very kindly invited us to join their family and friends at Schreiner's Iris Gardens, near Salem. They were so hospitable and inclusive of us, and made an amazing event even more amazing and enjoyable. Thank you so much from all of our family for giving us such happy memories of our visit.
My family enjoyed 4 nights at this lovely cottage, it is under the main house but feels completely private and surrounded by a nice garden and abundant trees. It was pretty ideal to be in a quiet neighborhood but also very short drive to downtown (about 10 minutes) and other areas of Portland, we loved coming back to our retreat after a day in the city. Our hosts were very nice and helpful, and we especially liked our visits with Joe the dog! Hope to return someday soon.
