Property description

Very beautiful, private and romantic getaway! Cozy and comfortable with all the amenities including a fully stocked kitchen, plush towels and linens, spa robes, beach towels and washer/dryer. Walking distance to Milwaukie's Farmers market, shops and restaurants. Minutes to many local breweries and restaurants galore. Natural cedar hot tub right on the riverbank under a beautiful one-hundred-year-old weeping willow tree is complimentary with your stay. Optional on-site Spa treatments are available such as Massage, Couples Massage, and Thallaso Hydro-Spa Treatments. Massage therapists are on-call and the charges are the same as we charge at our downtown Spa ~ Spa Sasse'.
Keurig Coffee & Treats are supplied with your stay as well as Chocolates on your bed. Your bed is located right next to a natural wood-burning fireplace and looks out to the beautiful Willamette River view through large windows. The bath has a shower and a bath tub. The decor is very romantic and soothing. Everything is supplied for you including candles.
You have a private deck with a grill and lovely seating area, as well as full access to the entire lovely grounds.
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 are mindful of things such as on-street parking, excessive drinking and/or loud music. We limit the size to 70, and charge an additional venue fee of $20 per guest with a minimum of $1000, plus venues must rent both suites on this property: #377569 and #431527.

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