Property description

FEATURED ON HGTV's LIVING CHANNEL AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 HOMES - Have you ever wondered what it would feel like living aboard a floating home? Imagine waking to the gentle cradle of a river's current and feeling blessed enough to be able to experience the tranquility of life on the river. Serenity awaits you at our home.

Whether you are a business traveler seeking rejuvenating solitude, a romantic couple looking to rediscover one another, an artist waiting to be inspired again, an adventurer looking to explore God’s country, or a family in need of precious time together, just to share with one another, this is a home-away-from home guaranteed to sooth your soul.

Can you imagine, vision yourself basking in the stillness of the morning sun, stretched out on a cushy lounge chair, drinking a steaming cup of freshly brewed, Northwest coffee from our panoramic floating deck? Breath in the beauty of nature as the sun rises before you reflecting off the tranquil water. Witness the morning routine of our resident otters and beaver as you soak in our second story 'Lookout Tower' spa.

In the evening feel free to defy the darkness by lighting a bon-fire in the custom fire pit, while your line drifts with the river’s current anticipating a tug on your line from a nocturnal channel catfish swimming deep below. Gazing at your pole, your mind congers up visions of pan-fried channel catfish over roasted potatoes, mmm, dinner awaits you.

You will experience nature as never before, without ever leaving our home. The Pacific Northwest is known as Salmon Nation, from the house you can witness these majestic fish throughout the seasons as they breakwater searching to find their way upstream to spawn, fulfilling their life’s destiny. You will hear the Osprey cry out as they call to one another, circling high above, surveying the river for their prey. The Great Blue Herron, Bald Eagle, a variety of Geese, and exotic Ducks are no strangers to our back yard. Come experience river life for yourself.

This is much more than a vacation, it is an opportunity allowing you to take in the beauty of nature. If you had previously considered taking your family on vacation elsewhere, reconsider. You can forget about the theme parks in the big cities with their unavoidable crowds; this is one vacation that you will never forget. Bring your family to the end of The Oregon trail where the real adventure begins.

Oregon, The Original Adventure Land.

P.S. The house is nice too.

The VRBO Bear Visits the Portland, Oregon Area & Stays in a FLOATING HOUSE! 04/26/2005

VRBO Bear stayed here:


What a blessing it was to stay this BEAUTIFUL FLOATING HOME. We enjoyed the lovely scenery looking through picture windows throughout the home. We spent peaceful time on the spacious deck out back on the Willamette River. We watched water-skiers ski up and down the river... WOW!

This floating home was featured on HGTV's Living Channel 80 Homes. The home has all of the amenities we could ever want... Three bedrooms including a spectacular master suite. Located in Oregon City, this home is close to everything. We visited downtown Portland, the vineyards in the surrounding area, and the beautiful falls on the way to the Oregon coast.

What a relaxing and enjoyable vacation... We would love to go back again soon!

Signed, VRBO Bear
