                                                            Very comfortable stay

                                                            Amy S.Williamsburg, VA

                                                            Such a cozy, clean, quiet place to vacation at.

                                                            A peaceful little cottage in a spectacular garden.

                                                            Larry B.

                                                            Coming from upstate New York to visit our Son, Daughter in-law, and our newly born first grandchild, the cottage at Mossy Cobbles was an ideal location for us and worked out very well. The cottage was impressive with its woodwork and windows with spectacular views of amazing gardens. The furnishings made the cottage comfortable, charming, and efficient. Thanks to the owner for making us feel welcome. From the moment we walked into the cottage we felt at home. We certainly hope to return some time in the future.

                                                            Amazing locale, perfect hideaway in the city

                                                            George M.

                                                            Fantastic little cottage! perfect for a couples retreat. very nice and quiet location. Deborah was helpful, answered all the questions we had over the phone, and responded very quickly. The cottage was very clean, and she had only simple, common-sense rules. Bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen appointed well enough for most anything you would need. If you're looking for a place with some downtime with a book, or quiet space at the end of the day running around the city - this is a no brainer. Wake up, have some of the excellent coffee we were given, and sit on the porch and admire the green space before you head back out. If we end up back in portland. This is where we will stay again.

                                                            The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer.

                                                            Peaceful, Comfortable and Convenient Cottage

                                                            Roberta M.

                                                            Mossy Cobbles cottage has been my home away from home for the last 8 years during the month of May. I absolutely love staying here while on business, as is a peaceful and super comfortable oasis. It’s located at the dead end of a quiet street next to the beautiful Fanno Creek trail, and is convenient to Portland (15 minutes without commuter traffic) and Willamette Valley wineries. The tall cathedral ceiling and windows looking out to the woodland views and Deborah’s beautiful garden with horticulturally rare shade plants are a delight. Deborah is a terrific hostess, providing snacks on your arrival and lots of great info. I love the amenities: underfloor heating, fully equipped kitchen, wifi included (along with TV and stereo), comfortable bed in the upstairs loft, long window seat looking out on view, very well maintained and clean. Shopping is close by (grocery plus the Washington Square mall) and my favorite gym. Now you know why I return to this cottage every year!

                                                            We loved our stay at Mossy Cobbles!!

                                                            My husband and I stayed at Mossy Cobbles for a week for a friend's wedding. We absolutely LOVED the seclusion, the large picture window looking out at the garden, and the walking trails behind the house!! The owners were super friendly!! We have nothing but fond memories of this adorable cottage!

                                                            Mossy Cobbles is located between the west border of Portland and the east border of Beaverton. Here in Garden Home, it is a short walk through the woods to the Garden Home Community Center with a small library, gym, soccer field, playground, and classes. Across the street are a Starbuck's, Shari's Café, Baskin-Robins, Ploy's Thai Restaurant, and a supermarket. Beaverton Farmers Market is open Saturdays from February to November. Next to the market is a random-pattern pavement fountain noisy in the summer with happy small children, while across the street is a 2-story glass front library which includes a quiet sitting area and 100's of current periodicals. Guests can access downtown Portland and all it has to offer in 20 minutes, barring rush hour traffic. Be sure to see Powell's City of Books, stroll and shop in the Pearl District, the Hawthorne District, and Nob Hill. Portland Art Museum is in the South Park blocks near Portland State University. Also down town, the Schnitzer Concert Hall and Keller Auditorium showcase the Oregon Symphony and world class touring musicals. Many local theatrical events are available in more intimate settings. Ride the aerial tram from the South Waterfront to Oregon Health Science University for a spectacular 180 degree view of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and the active volcano Mount St. Helens. Enjoy a meal at one of the many creative and competitive restaurants and food carts that put Portland on the culinary map. Guests may venture further east to historic Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, or famous Multnomah Falls in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Driving west, it is not far to the wine country for a glass of Oregon's world famous pinot noir. Drive further west to the Pacific Ocean for a stroll on the beach, shops, or seafood caught the same day. Nature hikes can be found outside the back door on the Fanno Creek Trail, in Forest Park, on Sauvie Island, Oaks Bottom. Oregon's old growth forests provide inspirationally beautiful hikes; wily foragers can find chanterelle and morel mushrooms, crayfish and huckleberries. Lovely local gardens include Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, Washington Park Rose Test Gardens, and The Bishops Close (Elk Rock). Children enjoy the Oregon Zoo and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Go swimming at the Southwest Community Center or try ice skating at the Portland Winterhawks skating center a few miles away. Search the internet for the winery tours, walking tours, antiques shopping, cooking classes, rowing, kayaks and canoes, standup paddleboards, horseback riding, caving, and rivers to swim in.
