1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Portland, Oregon
We offer an airy ground floor apartment, in the home where we live. Walk down the rock stair path through the gardens to your private entrance. The oversized windows bring the outdoors inside.

We live in a uniquely sited place that will soothe your spirit. Come to write, to explore, to read, to unwind.

Our home sits on the edge of Forest Park in NW Portland, which makes it feels as if you were miles and miles from no-where, and yet is 5 minutes by car from the night-life and shops of the Nob Hill area, and the city public transit system.

The apartment.... Walk into the great-room. It has an office working area and dining area at one end and a living-room area with gas fireplace and HD TV at the other. The couch converts to a second queen futon bed at night, if needed.

The moment my daughter and I were greeted by Margie and Dave, we knew this was a special place. Warm, wonderful people who have a beautiful, handcrafted, tasteful space surrounded by nature. Hiking on some great trails just at the driveway's edge...one of best experiences ever.

Management response:

We love it when guests take advantage of our location in the park and go hiking! And Alice, the golden retriever, loved going along!

Where do I begin, we actually did not stay in the lower area of the house but the upper one bedroom, bath area but literally could not be better, heated floors, check, large oversize comfortable bed, check, wonderful owners, check and one outstanding breakfast let me tell you. You will not be dissapointed, this is one of the most beautiful houses, hand crafted I have ever seen, we felt like we were staying in a wooded lodge away from home, loved it and David and Margie were great!!
