Great for our family

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful spot was perfect for our family. We wanted to escape the Texas summer heat for a long weekend before my stepdaughter goes off to college in the fall. My husband is very into trail running right now and loved that he could step out the door and run trails in Forest Park. We used this as home base while we explored Portland, and it was perfect for relaxing with a movie or playing some foosball after a day of adventuring. I really appreciated the attention to detail that enhanced the stay. In addition to the helpful welcome packet and lovely surprise welcome basket, there were also nightlights, plug covers, power strips, plentiful towels, and extra batteries in the desk (useful when the Roku remote went out). Even a small fan that could be used for white noise when sleeping. We were grateful to have coffee and coffee filters provided, as well as aluminum foil and saran wrap. Very useful for leftovers, but not items that you want to purchase at the store for just a few days. I knew about the high chair, which was very useful for our 9 month old, but hadn't realized there was also a pack-n-play and umbrella stroller available. We used our jogging stroller that we brought from home for walks in the park anyway, but got quite a bit of use out of the pack-n-play instead of our bulkier play yard we had brought with us. Next time we will leave that at home and just use the pack-n-play! (It was also useful to block the stairs from our adventurous new stair climber.) We loved our time in Portland and hope to make this a regular Summer trip. Check out the St. John's Beer Garden and surrounding food trucks. Close by, delicious, and family-friendly. We ate there multiple times.

Better than any hotel

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to get away from it all. It's close to Portland and other attractions. There's plenty of parking and security was never an issue. Everything we needed was provided. The steam shower was an extra bonus especially after moving my daughter into her dorm. I look forward to staying here again.

Peaceful Forest Surroundings in the City

  • 5 of 5

Love this property! Second time to stay here and will be back the next trip to Portland. This location is quiet and has convenient access to the places you want to visit. The deck overlooking the forest is the perfect spot to enjoy a mug of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine and dinner in the evening. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and this spacious loft is very comfortable. The owners are great to work with and respond quickly to any questions. Highly recommend!

Very spacious and clean! Beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay. Had more than everything we needed and was clean. Winding roads and the drive up in the dark could be a problem for some. Just have to pay close attention to the twists and turns to arrive at secluded and beautiful location. Overall very pleasant stay and would recommend!

Great getaway with the family

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling for work to Seattle and brought my husband and one year old daughter along with me for a short detour through Portland for a few days. We are so glad we did!

We didn't have any trouble finding the loft, but we weren't used to Portland having remote forested areas so close to urban city centers. This loft is in a pretty remote forested area but is still very close to downtown Portland. We had a great time visiting the Tillamook cheese factory, Canon beach and downtown Portland.

Traveling with a one year old presents its own challenges, but the loft was perfect - plenty of space for her to crawl around, a fridge and freezer for her milk and any other food, even a bottle brush to clean her bottles! Most importantly, Bryant provided a pack and play (!!) for us so we didn't have to bring our own! This was a HUGE help. He even offered their high chair and umbrella stroller, which we didn't end up needing but was very nice to have available.Our daughter loved going through the large number of kids books available and reading a new one every night.

Our daughter doesn't sleep well in the same room with us so the loft was perfect so we could put her in her own room, shut the doors and we slept in the larger open room.

This place was perfect for us. The only downside was the skylight that couldn't be covered, meaning our daughter sometimes woke up earlier than usual because of the bright sunlight coming in. Other than that it was great and perfect for what we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
