About John Marling

Welcome to our beautiful home in the coast mountains of Oregon.

John Marling purchased this house in 1976

Why John Marling chose Gales Creek

We bought the property as an escape. Yet it's close to the beach and Portland.

What makes this house unique

Seclusion. Beautiful setting. Very relaxing. Love going to sleep listening to the stream.

Great location for travel to Oregon wine country, the beach and the city of Portland. Hundreds of miles of biking trails adjacent to property.

Nothing to add ...

  • 5 of 5

Pictures, description and reviews are spot on. Most importantly, our kids (6 and 8) really enjoyed playing in and around the house.

Amazing location -Friendly Owner - Good facilities

  • 4 of 5

Location is very accessible and the outside is wonderful. Owners are great to work with and left good instructions. There are plenty of suggestions for activities if you do not have your own agenda. Kitchen was clean and had enough dishes/pots/pans to provide family meals. Bathrooms were in good shape and clean. Bedrooms were comfortable.

Perfect for our group of 7!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of 7 friends, and it was absolutely perfect for us. Such a great location, lots of bedrooms, great living space, and a peaceful stream and beautiful green space in the backyard. We loved our stay and would recommend this place to anyone -- John was so attentive and helpful and kind!

Gorgeous place!

  • 4 of 5

The place is gorgeous! So relaxing, day or night. I would of given it 5 stars but it does need some deep cleaning and new mattresses. The house is huge which helped us since we were a big family. The owners are very friendly which i got to meet personally and also live next door. I would definitely stay again!

Ummm...not a do over. Beautiful Location. Filthy House.

  • 1 of 5

beautiful location but the place itself was FILTHY... I spent 3 days Cleaning so my family was safe. You literally are instructed to clean up everything yourself before you leave, and I do mean EveryThing...and it was REALLY obvious no one had washed the sheets/bathrooms/dishes/floors, etc cripes, in Forever! Seriously, I doubt the carpets have been vacuumed in 18 years. YUCK!

Owner's Response: Guest, Katie Brown, was very positive about at our home. She sent me a very nice VRBO note right after her stay on December 14th, 2016 that said: "THANK YOU FOR A MOST PEACEFUL AND RELAXING WEEKEND" Her comments were only positive. Now six months after she stayed at our home, she posts a vicious, negative review. My wife and I are absolutely dumbfounded. Did she recently stay at another VRBO rental and accidently post a negative review to our home? The contradiction of comments and the timeline, doesn't make sense, being so positive six months ago and this posting Of the 25 reviews from our guests, 16 have been 5/5 and another 4 are 4/5 making 20 of 25 very positive ratings. The reason for the couple poor ratings was because we were out of town and not able to check between guests. We now have a professional cleaning lady to clean the house between guests and make sure that everything is 110% ready for you. If you want a home to getaway in a beautiful, secluded setting this is it. If you want a "citified" 5 star hotel, our home is not what you are looking for. You will love your stay at our home as 20 of 25 guests have. Please call us at 503.784.5772 if you have any questions. Thank you very much for your consideration. WELCOME!
