About Tim and Lee Hutton-Welch
My wife Lee and I are 70-something escapees from California who believe SERVICE is the highest satisfaction-driving investment MAPLERIDGE HOUSE can make. SERVICE unlocks the value of our enterprise. That's our competitive edge; that's our crown jewel! SERVICE isn't something that supports our business, it IS our business. I am a retired book and software publisher and Lee has given up a small ranch to be my wife-companion ! We are very proud of the fact MapleRidge House was selected by National Geographic to film witnesses to the Mt St Helens eruption for their movie 'American Volcano', to be released world wide in 2020.
Tim and Lee Hutton-Welch purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Tim and Lee Hutton-Welch chose Woodland
We love MapleRidge because it is a BnB FOR ALL SEASONS, private and close to all the big city things we love, and yet is serenely rural on a private 20-acre wooded mountain ridge... ~we love it for the same reasons National Geographic picked it as a site to film witnesses to the Mt St Helens eruption for their feature movie 'American Volcano', to be be released world wide in 2020! We are a natural blessing for the guests who choose to stay with us. Come see for yourself!
What makes this Apartment unique
MapleRidge House is grand setting for family HOLIDAYS! If you have kids or parents living within 35 miles of our setting you can, as many have done, get everyone together for daytime or evening events. It is perfect if your family's home does not have sufficient room for you, or if you would like to get a breather from, shall we say, family events!! Because we are in rural Clark County, just 30 minutes from Portland, you do NOT have to pay the egregious surcharges for booking in Portland... an additional $4.00 per night plus another 2% tax! Urban Robbery! And last but not least, visits of seven (7) days earn very good discounts from our base price, and TWENTY EIGHT (28) days or more give you a deal you cannot refuse! Please check it out!!

This property was Amazing! The view was outstanding, it was hard to look away from the windows. The place was well stocked and sparkling clean. We loved sitting on the covered patio to visit with Sambo the family dog.The owners were attentive to our needs. I highly recommend The MapleRidge House.
Joni and Team Peterka! ~this is Sambo! I hate to do this, but I must confess Sky was the best tummy rubber, and if you come back it would be worth while to ask him what his technique is, and that way I can schmooze Tim and Lee and Sharon (forget Jigger) to lower your prices!! ~all the best!
Thank you so much Tim and Lee for the wonderful welcome and for allowing us to stay at such wonderful and serene place. Everything was outstanding... Reyna
Reyna, it means everything to us that you enjoyed your visit and was able to see your sister get married at the Empress in Woodland. We appreciate that you picked MapleRidge House: A BnB For All Reasons!

Great Location, lovely owners
We stayed here recently for a work project and we could not be happier, lovely location, beautiful cabin & the owner Tim could not have been more helpful. Can't recommend highly enough - thanks Tim & family!
Lin Lin, Charlotte, and all the thoughtful crew members who filmed here on behalf of National Geographic; ~we were really excited you chose us as your setting to shoot film for the forthcoming one hour special American Volcano, celebrating Mt St Helen. You left everything in order, neat and clean! It's a long way to come from London, but we welcome you back anytime!!
A little slice of Heaven
WOW! What an amazing slice of Heaven! We thoroughly enjoyed our too short of a stay in this beautiful home. I remarked to my husband that there was not one thing that we wanted/needed that was not thoughtfully provided by Tim & Lee—including a much needed occasional snuggle from Sambo the dog that resembles a Grizzly Bear Cub—since we were missing our two pups at home. Thoughtful and gracious care taking of a wonderful home in the woods. We hope to return for a longer stay.

Kelly and Kurt, and Vicki too of course: it's true the house seemed lonely and too quiet after you left, but Sambo has been moping around, his lower lip getting into his food dish, and now we have to pay a dog doctor to ease him out of his angst. Even so we would be delighted to see you again. Kelly, remember it's the BEES KNEES you seek!
Well, where do I start. I came to this area for a wedding and found a GREAT place to just come to relax and enjoy the surroundings. This apartment has all high-end appliances and accouterments, the owner Tim, I believe prepared this place as though he were going to stay here, not typical of A bnb's that I have stayed in. Also, Tim was available to answer any questions and offer places to eat and places of interest, if only we could have stayed longer.....We will have to come back. Thank you again Tim for your wonderful woodsie hideaway.
To get another review like that I would be willing to remarry so I could invite you to the wedding! Thanks Very Much Laura... there is joy in this business, and it doesn't come from doing the laundry... it's meeting and making new friends! Come Again!!
Views that can’t be beat
We loved our stay here. We were there for a wedding and it was nice to have our own place to stay for a few nights to have some rest and privacy. You really can’t beat the views this property offers. The owner Tim is such a nice and welcoming guy. We even had family come over for dinner one night and it wasn’t an issue at all. Only thing I would say that could be made note of is that I was woken up 2 out of 4 of the mornings to the footsteps being pretty loud above us at 5 in the morning, but it wasn’t really that big of a deal. We loved it here and would definitely come back in a heartbeat! Last but not least, Sambo and Jigger were the perfect addition to our stay. ;)
Casey... We don't get up that early, so it might be the Ghost of MapleRidge House!! Just kidding, wouldn't want the rest of the world to think we are haunted! Yes, it was me, and I was stumbling around trying to get coffee before the incredible sunrise started! We loved having your family, and feel like Ohana for certain!! Mahalo, and come again please!! ...and I promise to tiptoe!
