About Mark & Monica
An east-coast girl who worked in Portland and a mid-western boy who travelled the world, met and found a magical place in the woods. We both love old houses and travel. Mark can fix just about anything, and Monica is happiest hosting a table full of friends. Monica is an advertising creative and Mark is an IT consultant.
Mark & Monica purchased this Guest House in 2018
Why Mark & Monica chose Welches
Classic, old-fashioned property full of charm that feels unspoiled. A man-made creek from the 1920s, garden paths, outbuildings, greenhouse, stonework. It is a beautiful piece of land with river frontage that abuts wilderness. Truly unique. We have traveled a fairly large swath of the Earth and think this is one of the most beautiful places we have seen. More than one visitor has called this place an "enchanted forest". The previous owners have a lot of heart & soul. In the 5 years they hosted the guesthouse, it has been consistently a 5-star review-getter. We hope to continue in their spirit.
What makes this Guest House unique
Being secluded at the end of a dead end gravel road, having nothing but wilderness on 2 sides --- Salmon River frontage in one direction and the Salmon Huckleberry Wilderness in another direction. Neighbors on 2 sides, but you will not feel crowded. Romantic and wild, with acres to explore. But there's a shopping center 5 minutes away, in case you need some milk or batteries. A resort with golf & a spa is a very short drive away. It also is only an hour's drive from the attractions of Portland in one direction and the Columbia River Gorge in another. The best of all worlds.

Sweet Autumn Getaway
Loved the property, the brook and River. The Autumn leaves kept our pup’s feet clean! ❤️
Enjoyed the historic areas, and restaurants. Love being able to bring our dog! The only problem was the VRBO website who seems to be unable to update owner information, and process the 2nd half of the payment!
One of our favorites!
We love it here. So private and peaceful. It is heaven for dogs
Please note- the Bridge over the Salmon River is being replaced in 2018. This will mean some construction delays coming and going. There may be some noise but it is about 1/2 mile from us. Generally we are quiet and secluded at the end of a private gravel road, abuts wilderness, property extends to the Salmon River. The small village of Welches has both fine and casual restaurants, a golf course and resort, many beautiful hiking trails, and is about 20 minutes from historic Timberline Lodge located at the 6000 ft. level on Mt. Hood. The views are extraordinary from this historic structure.
