You will truly fall in love with it here!

The new MAX Orange Line is now open, making travel without a car a breeze! The MAX stop is walking distance and will take you to downtown Portland in a 20 minute scenic ride. Travel to and from the airport is also a breeze with the new MAX rail.

Enjoy the nearby Milwaukie Wunderland & Moreland Theaters, Milwaukie Farmer’s Market, Oaks Park, New Seasons Market, Fred Meyers, Saburo's Sushi (I promise it's the world's BEST sushi!), and a variety of restaurants including brew pubs, coffee shops, family-friendly and fine dining.

Enjoy comfort and privacy in our beautiful oasis and enjoy all that Portland has to offer!

Our house is nestled within a quiet, friendly neighborhood located just a short drive to downtown Portland (12 min.), and the heart of Sellwood-Moreland (3 min.) with nearby freeway entry allowing for convenient access to the airport (20 min.). Mass transit is just a few blocks away.

The Portland area abounds with wineries and we are only 20 minutes from the North Willamette Valley and Dundee Hills wine country.

Hop on the freeway and be at Multnomah Falls and beautiful hiking in the Gorge in only 40 minutes.

Go another 30 minutes and you will be in Hood River, windsurfing capital of the world. Enjoy wineries, see the windsurfers and kite boarders, do the Fruit Loop, eat, drink and be merry ~ they have quaint bistros, fabulous dining and numerous festivals.

For mountain enthusiasts, Mt. Hood's Government Camp is only 1 hour 11 minutes from our home, (or continue on from Hood River and be there in 30 more minutes) where you will find SkiBowl, Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows ski resort, lake and river fishing, hiking, and much more. Take the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway for a very full day!

* Please note: I do keep my calendar up to date, so if it looks like it is available, then it is!

*Note: This is a gorgeous property, and we get numerous requests for holding events here such as weddings, bridal parties, family reunions, etc., etc.

We are in a neighborhood and must be respectful of our neighbors, so we no longer allow events.

This home is convenient to several medical facilities and is perfect for Locum Tenens accommodations.

The setting and sounds and feel of this place was fabulously peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Our birthday "Maprils" (March and April birthdays) weekend adventure was made complete with our stay at this beautiful place. We especially loved hot tubbing while it lightly rained and we could relax down by the river. The fresh eggs were a special touch. And having spa services on-site was a treat! Thank you! -- 3 Ladies from Alaska

Beautiful, relaxing place right on the river

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location on beautiful grounds right on the river. We felt far from the busy Portland scene but actually close to so much. What a great relaxing place to spend the week. We will be back!

The view is amazing,... but the inside of the house is different.

  • 3 of 5

Gorgeous property, on the lake. I will never forget the view, but the inside of the property needs a lot of work. It was very dusty and smelled of antique when we arrived, so we had to leave the door open the whole day to air it out. It really wasn't very clean on the inside, but the view from the bed out to the lake made the difference. Unfortunately we probably won't be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Myya, I am glad you enjoyed the view of the Willamette river. Thanks for the heads-up, we got right on the deeper, meticulous Spring cleaning and it is now immaculate! I appreciate all feedback, as it helps us improve. We want to provide the best experience possible in our beautiful, quality space here on the river.

Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I needed a getaway to finish a master's thesis and this was just what I needed. One of my favorite places on the Willamette. Breathtaking view, the furnishings are beautiful, the kitchen was well stocked. Every time I need something I turned around and it was right there. The bead was super comfortable and the fireplace set a nice atmosphere. And right upstairs is the world's most wonderful masseuse! I will definitely be back for a getaway with my wife.

A peaceful hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

This home made for a perfect weekend getaway. While you're surrounded by the city, it's location and hedges create a sanctuary from the noise. We woke to geese out on the yard one morning which brought delight. Overall a great time.
