"The House was perfect for our retreat. Everything was as described. We had plenty of room to sleep and gather. We found the location to be ideal for all our needs. We enjoyed a walk to Mikes drive in for ice cream. The youth really enjoyed the game room. I would say we would definitely come again. Lisa was great in all her communication with me."Guest: Liz Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 26, 2014View listing
"Great location! Right on the river, very close walk to The Pearl district, pool and hot tub in the complex. Everything you need is so close."Guest: IanThomstache Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 29, 2014View listing
"My sweetheart and I spent two nights here at the end of our ten-day vacation in Oregon and it was the perfect ending for the trip. The accommodations are excellent and the amenities far beyond what we expected...not only the room, but the private little deck, the hot tub, the river view, the quiet neighborhood, and the lovely garden all made us feel like special guests. Sara and Fred offer that perfect combination of hosting: as attentive to our desire for company and socializing as to our desire for "alone time". We'd love to go back and recommend it especially for couples who want to visit Portland but take time to sit by the Willamette River and relax."Guest: Nancy and Joan Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: September 11, 2014View listing
"This house is fantastic! We came to Portland for the first time to see my niece graduate from PSU with her Phd. We had to rely on pictures and communique with Will, the owner, to determine if this place was our best option to accommodate our large family (ranging from age 4 to age 74), every room was full! The pictures posted enabled us to plan accordingly and the correspondence with Will (I sent many emails with many questions) enabled us to determine we were right where we needed to be. Will was accommodating, helpful and kind. The house was beautiful, charming, had everything we needed and then some! The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, linens were plentiful, kitchen was stocked, coffee houses, restaurants, transportation all nearby and within walking distance! Something we are not used to in Phoenix! We enjoyed sitting on the patio for hours as well as gathering in the lush backyard and watching the kids play. In short, it was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in fact we took family portraits on the front steps with the beautiful historic house as our background. Our stay was perfect from start to finish. We are hoping for another opportunity or reason to come back and stay here in the near future!"Guest: Sam B Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 26, 2014View listing
