"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
"The Butternut Condo was a lovely place for our ladies (3) trip to Portland. Fabulous location with plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, & grocery stores all within walking distance. Bus transportation was equally good and easy to navigate. The Condo was very clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. All that said, I would be remiss not to mention a few things a potential renter might need to know. The king size bed is quiet comfy, but the pull out couch is absolutely awful!!! The owner did, after I asked, provide a twin size thin egg crate foam pad. It helped a little, but not much. Do not expect more than one person to sleep on the pull out bed and definitely don't expect to get a good night's sleep. So truthfully, the condo comfortably only sleeps 2 people. You are paying for air conditioning, but don't expect too much! If the air outside is 75% or less, it automatically shuts off!! And finally, there's the check in time. The 4 - 6 p.m. time frame allotted stinks!!!! We were charged an additional $100.00 more because we did not arrive during the check in time. I firmly believe the fee was over priced and not necessary at all. The condo has a number code lock that is programmed with your cell number to allow entry. There is a notebook full of detailed information to acclimate one to the details of the condo. The owner's daughter lives on the other side of the condo and could have easily let us in or visited with us the next day. So, be forewarned, if your flight arrives after 6p.m. be prepared to pay a hefty late fee! Other than that, Portland is a fabulous city to explore & you should definitely enjoy your stay."Guest: tina j. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 4, 2014View listing
"Our family spent a wonderful week in the main house when we came to Portland to visit a daughter and her husband for the first time since they moved there. It was great to have space for our kids/spouses and grand-children. We made a lot of great memories and had a relaxing time - especially out on the deck or in the hot-tub, enjoying an evening fire and making S'mores, canoeing, swimming, fishing, listening to the sounds of nature (and the trains going by on nearby tracks which we easily got used to), etc. etc. The house was well furnished and we were able to do most of our cooking there. We enjoyed touring the nearby waterfalls, rode Segways to tour Portland, took the kids to the Oregon Zoo, and did some other site-seeing while there. Joyce was very helpful in answering our questions and Peter, the caretaker, was great as well. We would highly recommend staying in this unique home on the water!"Guest: Jules Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 14, 2014View listing

Even though Portland is Oregon's most populous city, it has as its claim to fame being America's most environmentally friendly city. Green space planning was implemented as far back as 1903 and since 1995, the city has been actively acquiring key natural areas to be used for the preservation of fish and wildlife and for recreational use by its residents.
