"This property is located on the Willamette river in a little community on the outskirts of Sellwood. The deck offers a great view of the river, beautiful trees, a neighboring island (great for exploring), and, on our visit, the opportunity to watch eagles teaching their little ones to fly. Fred and Sara, the owners of this idyllic location, take meticulous care of the property and even better care of their guests. We stayed for almost two weeks and really did not want to leave. We give this place and its gracious stewards our highest endorsement."Guest: Jacque F. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: November 19, 2014View listing
"We came to Portland over the Thanksgiving weekend to visit with my son in college. The house was warm, welcoming and fully stocked. The owners were accommodating and pleasant to work with. We were able to cook a nice Thanksgiving meal for our family and friends. There weren't a lot of large pots, but we made do with the pots and pans they had. We enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace and spent a little bit of time on the deck when it warmed up to 50's. We would certainly return to this lovely home on a future Portland trip."Guest: Dina S.

"Thank you so much! We drove to Portland for a quick 2 night getaway from Vancouver, Canada. The cottage is located just a quick 10 min drive from the heart of DT. In addition, the neighborhoods that are close to the cottage SE Division etc.. have so much to explore, we only went into down a couple days. Best is they have bikes for you to use and explore the neighborhoods!! Great little loft rental- definitely willing to recommend + stay again. Only one small glitch by Homeaway when setting up our code for the lock box to get our key. We had 2 different people call for reservations and they used one ph# for the box but emailed us the wrong code. We arrived late (11pm) and had to fumble in the dark for 30 mins trying to figure out how to get in + call around and email to try to get access to property. We felt bad because it was late and didn't want to wake the neighbors. BUT the owners were amazing! They found out the issues we had and next day had a plate of brownies + cake with a sorry letter. Great care of their guest. Thank you."Guest: Vancouver folk Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 8, 2014View listing
