About the property

Gorgeous 7 bedroom, 6 bath 7600sf lodge with farm in the woods, sleeps 30

This unique property sits on 40 lush acres with it's own river front beach and forest. A giant fireplace is the centerpiece of an enormous great room that boasts 24ft ceilings, The log lodge was built with wood cut and milled right on the spot. Words cannot do justice to the beauty of this place.

We are a working organic farm with goats, chickens, ducks, barn cats, and 2 giant Great Pyrenees protector dogs. But once you get into the lodge, you'll just think you're in a 4.5 star resort with spectacular views from every window.

Ask us about special event rentals, including weddings, milestone birthdays, retreats, and more. Please note that the weekend of July 29th is available, however, we will be having a family campout, so you will only be able to use the far river access. Ask if you have questions.


The kitchen is a chef's dream. a total remodel was completed in May of 2017. Porcelain tile, stainless steel, and open fir shelving bring the beauty, the Wolf and Subzero appliances bring the functionality and elegance. Two refrigerators (chefs will appreciate the 48" Pro Subzero), two dishwashers, a three compartment commercial sink, two Wolf ranges, one with a grill and one with a griddle sit under a massive island hood vent. You will want to cook in this kitchen, or hire our chef and baker.

The dining room opens to the living room and can expand to accommodate very large dinner parties.

Master Suite 1 has a deep soaking tub for two, a shower, and a private deck overlooking the river below. The suite can have king size bed or be customized to contain multiple beds, depending on your needs.

Master Suite 2 has a bath tub with shower and the most amazing view of the park-like estate grounds.

The Bunk Room can sleep up to 10 people. It has an attached 3/4 bath with a shower and access to two shared toilets and a shared shower.

There are four other bedrooms. Two connect via a Jack and Gill bathroom. One connects to the main bathroom, and the other is across the hall (makes a great office).

The family or lounging room, as we like to call it, is a large mezzanine or loft area that is perfect for smaller groups to break away., play cards, watch a movie, enjoy social media, or read a book. Also room to sleep 8 more people on mats, should you have extra guests.

There are two covered porches in the back of the house? One of them is used for al' fresco dining, the other is often used as a yoga/exercise area and a sleeping porch in the summer. The front porch is the perfect place to watch the sun stream through the manicured forest.

There are areas to camp if that would be fun for you, and we have some tents, pads, and sleeping bags you can borrow. Camping for up to 40 people is possible.

(Yes, we accept weddings and parties, please ask about the additional charges)


A Sonos sound system delivers music throughout the house. You can play the same music, or play different music in different zones.

We're on a well, so the water is mineral rich and pure.

We're on a farm, so you are likely to be able to purchase fresh eggs, goats milk (starting in August, we hope), fruits, and possibly a selection of vegetables (though this is our first year, so we might not have extra produce right away).

You may be able to get to meet our farmers (they live on the property in a tiny house) and spend time with the farm animals. You might even be able roll up your sleeves and pitch in if that sounds like fun for you. Love goats?

We're very close to downtown Portland and the airport - only 30 mins for either - but you will feel a million miles away. We're only 20 minutes from trendy parts of SE Portland, like Hawthorn and Division. Being at the end of our own road means you'll not see neighbors, only the land stewards.

We're very close to a New Season's (Oregon's version of Whole Foods), restaurants and coffee shops (including Starbucks). It's a quick 12 minute drive. But you wouldn't know it once you're on the property.

We have rafts and kayaks, life vests, and coolers. We can arrange to take you up the river and drop you off so you can drift on down. We'll show you how to recognize our beach, and you can pull right on in, just in time for lunch or dinner. Or just enjoy lazy days splashing in our little slice of the river which is safe and secluded. You see, we own the seven acre island that separates our strip of river from the rest of the Clackamas. No one seems to know about our "private" beach and swimming hole, we think because, it's hard to get to. Your group or family will have the place all to yourself! (We will ask you to fill out our liability waiver, and to acknowledge that you use the river and all equipment at your own risk.)

We have a keyboard, djembes, and hand instruments if you want to make music around the campfire (between June 15 and October 15 only fire containers allowed, but the rest of the year, bonfires rock!) or in front of the hearth.

We're building a hot tub, should be ready by next summer (keep that in mind for next year!)

We have the most adorable barn cats. They don't come in, but if you love cats, they love to be petted.

We have a geothermal heat and air conditioning system. It's environmental and it keeps the lodge very comfy.

We have a Porto Potty down by the river between June and October - you can stay down there all day if you like.

There is a camping area below which you can reserve as part of your rental. Just contact host. Campground may be occupied during your stay, however, your private beach will remain exclusive to your use.


Events are okay as long as you provide event insurance, agree to not get crazy. Up to 75 people can be on the property with owner permission and additional per person fee for day use of camping. Ask about additional fees.

There is an executive suite that is not currently included in the rental. In the future it may become available to rent. Or it may be occupied by us via an exterior staircase. However, you will not be interacting with us unless you invite us to do so.

Why Gabriella Cordova chose Oregon City

This is paradise! It's close in, and it has everything we could want. The earth is fertile. We have a private stretch of river separated from the main river by the island we own. We love this land and are committed to restoring it to it's native condition. We have a 30 year forestry plan.

The rooms and open spaces make this a perfect place for gatherings.

"AMAZING!" We hear this over and over again, from the moment people enter, to the moment they say goodbye.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This is the perfect place for:

~ family reunions (up to 50 more people can camp or stay in RVs),

~ corporate retreats,

~ weddings,

~ intimate friendship gatherings,

~ 40th, 50th, and other milestone birthday celebrations

~ workshops and retreats

We have plenty of parking, privacy, and we're very close. There is no other property like this that is this close to town.

Dream Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was beyond perfect! This house has all the essentials and such beautiful workmanship! Comfy beds, plenty of lounging spots, a barn cat that I fell in love with, a kitchen with all the essentials. I can't say enough. It is one sexy house.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering/memorial service at this home. The lodging/bathroom/kitchen/huge great room / added conveniences were amazing. I can't say enough!! Comfortable beds - even the single beds were wonderful. Plenty of bathrooms - the kitchen had 2 stoves, a huge fridge, pantry, 2 dishwashers -- it served our huge group of 20 perfectly, and when we had the large gathering of 50 people -- no problems at all -- plenty of space, parking, seating -- AND - on top of all that the home is stunning -- the setting so tranquil and beautiful -- this rental is worth every penny. You will also love working with Gabriella - she was wonderful and responsive.

The property and its location were truly outstanding and absolutely magical.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was absolutely amazing. The building itself was so much more than we ever expected, the photos really don’t do it justice. We hired Gabriella’s house for our wedding celebration, and from the outset our communication with her was great and she was very happy to answer any questions that I might have. Gabriella was there on arrival and was so friendly and accommodating. Our friends and family were completely bowled over by the setting and the huge expanse of the house itself. The garden is gorgeous and picturesque, overlooking a beautiful river and forest land. All the rooms are spacious and well kept. The open plan living/dining/gaming room is the perfect space to hold big dinners with your nearest and dearest whilst also giving people enough space to do their own thing. All in all I cannot speak more highly of Gabriella and this property, we would stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you once again for a wonderful stay Gabriella.

Owner's Response: You are so welcome! Your group was so kind and warm, it was a pleasure taking you to visit the dogs and goats and seeing they children light up. I really appreciate you clean and tidy you left the property. You are five star guests. If you should return I would like to invite you to have a fourth day free, and I will certainly wave the deposit and cleaning fee!

Incredible house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at the house with a large group of friends and kids. It was the perfect place for our group, with plenty of rooms and beds for everyone to be comfortable. The house is beautiful, with large rooms and huge wood beams everywhere. The photos online don't do it justice.

And the kitchen! Oh the kitchen! A truly gourmet space fit for a professional chef. Our group is big on cooking, and this was one of the best spaces to prepare food we've ever used.

The grounds are huge, with views of the Clackamas river, and a grove of trees to wander through. It's a wonderful place, with lots off privacy. We are already thinking about another trip to the place to enjoy the warmer weather on the river.

We had a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: Your group was awesome and we very much look forward to hosting you again. Sad to say, but weekends for summer 2018 are already completely booked up. Get in your 2019 reservation and I'll add a fourth night free and waive the deposit. All the best. Gabriella

A weekend in Utopia!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary and I couldn't imagine a more spectacular backdrop to enjoy it in. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and I can't think of enough wonderful things to commend them on. The dreamy house literally had everyone in awe and I'm so happy we got the opportunity to relax and love the incredible scenery. Thank you beyond words!
