About Anthony Hager

I grew up in NorthEast Portland with Family roots in Corbett, which is just east of Fairview where my Lake House is. I fell in love with Blue lake a few years ago when I came across another home a few years ago. Now I have a family home on the lake and this one that I have chose to share with travelers who want to explore a piece of Oregon. Interlachen is a very quaint community where families have passed down their homes for generations. Once you experience the sunsets, the peacefulness of the area, and the home, you will understand. Blue Lake is only 20 minutes to downtown Portland and 10 minutes to PDX, so you can experience the lake life, with still having access to amenities of the city.

Anthony Hager purchased this house in 2015

Why Anthony Hager chose Fairview

This property has been all updated/remodeled. I have lived in Portland my whole life and wanted to purchase a home that is outside of the city with access to all of my favorite Oregon locations. Hood River, Cascade Locks, Multnomah Falls are all easily accessible. The Columbia River Gorge is an amazing place to call home.

What makes this house unique

This home has a great floor plan for entertaining. As you walk into the home, you can enjoy a view of the lake from the entire main floor. Every window looks out to the lake. The dining room has french doors which leads out to an oversized deck on the main floor. It is equipped with a beautiful patio set w/ Lounge chairs. The sunsets are absolutely amazing on all three decks that the home offers. The Hammock on the private boat dock is the perfect spot for an afternoon nap or to catch up on a good novel.

Peaceful & Beautiful Lake house in Portland!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying at the Blue Lake when visiting Portland. The location and this beautifully updated lake house offered a new and tranquil experience which we all enjoyed very much. The house is very comfortably furnished with peaceful lake views. We were blessed with great weather and hung out on the well furnished deck for breakfast and dinners during our stay. The owner, Tony, is responsive with great recommendations. My friends commended me for this great pick for our vacation! Thanks to all the great & helpful reviews! Thumbs Up!

We highly recommend this beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Area is quiet, pristine lake with geese, ducks and even a crane! The owners stocked their home well with plenty of towels, linens, laundry detergent, kitchen well appointed, etc. PLENTY of room for 5 of us to spread out. Two couples and one single all felt like we had our own bedroom/bath suites! Furnishings are beautiful. Loved waking each morning to an all window view from kitchen to dining area to living room overlooking the lake and a full length deck to step out onto. They have plenty of games to play and neighbors are friendly. I REALLY wanted to give this awesome place a 5, but the microwave and dishwasher gave us fits. Tony responded quickly with ideas on how to make them work properly. Oh, and a fabulous continental breakfast was waiting for us. I should say breakfasts, because the food lasted for many morning munchings and coffee that lasted through our whole 8 day stay. Would rent this property again in a heartbeat.

It was just so so lovely. Location is perfect for traveling to Hood River, Portland , the waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge, wine tasting in Willamette Valley, Mt Hood, Mt St. Helen’s, Cannon Beach on the ocean, and a fun “adult playground” called McMennemins Edgefield in nearby Troutdale! Rent this house on Blue Lake. You won’t be sorry!!!

Very nice house to stay in. Patio off the kitchen and living room was very nice. Abundance of linens. Bedroom and bath separation was very nice and convenient for 3 couples. Only downside was noice from airport. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

Spacious, clean, and well appointed house perfect for adults or families.

  • 5 of 5

We never went out for dinner because we loved staying at home and having wine and dinner on the deck overlooking the lake. Watching muskrats swimming between lilly pads and hearing bullfrogs at night was also a bonus. We also enjoyed catch and release bluegill fishing from the dock in our spare time. Highly recommend the house.

Chinook landing is 1 mile from the lake house. This is one of the two Columbia river access points in the Portland area. There are salmon guides that can facilitate fishing trips. The home is 10 minutes from McMenamins Edgefield which is a restaurant/bar/hotel/concert venue. Also close to Troutdale outlet Mall, Salty's on the Columbia is a waterfront restaurant with great seafood/brunch/happy hour. Multnomah Falls is 20 minutes down the 84 Freeway, Cascade Locks is 40 minutes and Hood River is about an hour away east. Fairview is along the Columbia River and the gateway to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge
