The >1250 sq ft apartment opens on to a small garden, and overlooks a wide sweep of the Willamette river, with an abundance of wildlife-viewing and fishing opportunities.
Guests have access to kayaks (with life jackets), an outdoor BBQ, and direct river access through the adjacent public easement. Fishing rods and bicycles may also be available (with a limited selection of helmets).
The host is generally available to answer questions, or offer suggestions for local venues and activities.
Our home is centrally located between downtown Portland (by car or the recently opened MAX orange line), and historic Oregon City, close to the Willamette Falls, Milwaukie Farmers market, the Sellwood shopping and dining area, Mount Hood and the Columbia Gorge. The Milwaukie/Oak Grove trolley trail is close by, offering a safe, scenic artery by which to explore the area, by foot or bicycle.
The apartment comes with a dedicated parking space, and nearby public transportation includes the Orange line, for easy, parking-free exploration of the greater Portland area.
