About Cathleen Walker
I am a realtor that works in Lake Oswego and North/Northeast Portland. My daughter grew up in this home and now my grandchildren enjoy it. This is a house for kids and dogs or a quiet adult getaway. You won't be disappointed.
Cathleen Walker purchased this Bungalow in 1983

What a beautiful home, property and great location! There were 5 of us staying at this property, we had plenty of room and everything we needed.
Cathleen was more than accommodating to us during our stay.
Such a great family. They kept the house spotless and it was fun seeing the kids get their new puppy there.
I was extremely disappointed with this property. My husband, myself and our toddler had pre-booked (and pre-paid) for the property and we were scheduled to stay for a week. Within seconds of stepping foot onto the property we immediately discovered that the house was plagued with a myriad of safety issues that effectively rendered the house uninhabitable. For beginners, the house was not properly sealed and there was an infestation of creepy crawly critters both inside the property and on the surrounding deck. Next, the railings on the second floor were spaced so far apart, an adult could easily slip through (and this was just not an acceptable or safe condition for any child; and I cannot image this would be up to “code”). Next, the dock was in complete and total disrepair. That being said, this was not a grave concern because we were told in advance that the property did not have lake access. However, there was no meaningful effort to seal off the deck from the backyard and (once again) this posed an extreme safety hazard for any children. The remainder of the property was generally unsightly and disheveled.
There is some glimmer of hope. I can see how this property could be revitalized or transformed into a wonderful place. However, in its current condition, we simply could not take the risk of staying at this property.
Loads of character and potential.
Nicely appointed older home on the southwest portion of the lake. Pros: unbeatable lake view, backyard hammock, fireplace, comfy beds, loads of character, cable TV, Uber Eats delivers. Cons: spiders and spider webs both inside and out, somewhat neglected and dirty- couldn't use patio table because it was covered in dirt and spider webs, no house guide or instructions (besides wifi password), lack of privacy (insufficient window coverings throughout), another person staying on the property (not disclosed at booking), train noise in the middle of the night.
Despite a few setbacks and my irrational fear of spiders, this was a good property to spend a week. With a little cleaning and pest control this home could be great. In my opinion, any other people staying on the property should be disclosed. Someone was staying in a studio above the detached garage (they were quiet as a mouse, though).
Owner was responsive to questions. A house guide would be hugely beneficial: we didn't know how to utilize the three separate trash/recycling bins; we didn't know if we could use the wood for the fireplace; and parking in front of the house was a little awkward.
Sorry about the spiders but living on the water is where they like to be. We do knock down the spiderwebs but they can be back in an hour. The use of the trash bins are marked on the bins but I will take your suggestion and write out a manual for the home. Our home is completely surrounded by foilage except for the back bedrooms which do have curtains. We love the scenery so we don't cover it up with window coverings but that is a matter of choice. The film company that taped the new Pretty Little Liars spin-off put up window coverings and asked if we wanted to keep them but we declined because the beauty of living there is being able to see out to the lake in the twelve foot Hedges that surround the property . The garage and the apartment above are not included in the rental and as you said she was quiet as a mouse and lots of times we stay on the property. The patio table should have been cleaned but when the gardener comes then it gets dusty again. I just cleaned it yesterday for our new guest so I hope it made it through the day. Thanks for your feedback we try to make it better all the time. It's a cabin on the lake designed for kids and dogs as it says in our promo. It also says in our promo that there is plenty of firewood for both fireplaces so of course you could have used the firewood. Thanks for the review we strive to make it better all the time.
Beautiful Lakefront home!
Had a very nice time, everything was as described, and had everything we needed for a pleasant week stay. Very pretty views of the lake, a large fireplace for the rainy nights, enough room for myself and two children to feel comfortable. Thanks, hope to stay with you again.
Location is heavenly!
We stayed in this home for 2 weeks while my girl friend recovered from surgery. Though the home is older the location made up for any deficits noticed due to its age.
The location on the lake is like a mountain retreat. Much of our time was spent on the back porch enjoying the lake view--watching fish jump, the bird activity, etc. One day an eagle was circling over the lake & dipping down to the water right in front of the porch. The house was fairly well stocked--plenty of towels, laundry detergent, fire wood and the kitchen had every thing needed for prepping & serving meals. A couple of days when the weather cooled & was raining, we had a wood burning fire in the gorgeous stone, oversized fireplace which contributed even more to the charm of this home. The only negative note was at 8:15ish, check out morning (without any heads up) one of the owners brought their large dog back to the home & left him loose on the porch which prevented us from being able to enjoy the porch our last few hours. Other than this one issue, we would definitely book this home again.
