Why Wendy Ferguson chose Woodstock
Wendy has lived in Woodstock for 18 years. Having moved here from San Francisco, she was drawn to the town-within-a-city feel of the neighborhood. Most everything one could possibly need is within walking distance, and most of the shopping gets done on foot. Woodstock is also a fabulous place for families, and the recreational opportunities within just a few miles are truly amazing. We bought this house with my parents so they could visit for long stretches. When they're not here, we want to share the house with others eager to visit this great piece of Portland. We're very flexible hosts, and will give you as much or as little direction as you desire. Already familiar with the area and just need a comfortable place to work or relax for a bit? We'll hand you the keys and leave you to it. Never been to Portland and need ideas for food and fun? The house is stocked with guidebooks and maps and we'll bend your ear as long as you'd like to listen (we have lots of opinions!).
What makes this House unique
We love the easy access to Safeway and Trader Joe's and New Seasons with its unique rooftop dining area for grocery shopping, and the many restaurant choices all within walking distance. The park down the street and other walking trails enhance our enjoyment of the area. And we love “antiquing” in Sellwood and Westmoreland. OMSI is a favorite outing with our granddaughter.

Lovely home with nice yard in fun neighborhood.
This was such a great place to stay to get to know Portland. Nice cozy downstairs with comfy couches and everything you need in the kitchen to cook. Wonderful backyard that you can enjoy rain or shine, with covered area and lighting for night time. Woodstock has a nice selection of restaurants, coffee shops and bars/breweries that are walkable to get to. Double Mountain brewing for Pizza/beer and Tom Yum for Thai were two of our favorites. Two grocery stores, a bakery and Otto's meat market who could ask for more! (ok I'm kind of food oriented). Woodstock park a block away is a pretty tree filled park with nice off leash dog area and playground for kids. Quick drive/Lyft to Division, Sellwood, Mt. Tabor, 15 mins to Downtown / E Burnside etc.
So glad you loved the space and the neighborhood (and food!). It was great having you in the house, and we appreciate you taking such good care of it.
We stayed here for 3 months while our own home was being remodeled.
It was an excellent choice. The house had everything we needed.
The house is well furnished, well supplied and very well organized, including books, jigsaw puzzles and games.
Nice little fenced side yard with a protected overhang covering a picnic table and barbecue.
There is a big park 2 blocks away with a no fence off leash dog area.
Just a few blocks to New seasons Market and Safeway. Cloud City Ice Cream next to Safeway with great ice cream. Grand Central Bakery just another block away. Good restaurants also walking distance.
Wendy was very responsive for any issues that came up.
We were very happy with the entire stay.
Thank you for taking such nice care of our home. We're so pleased you enjoyed your time and got a good taste of the neighborhood as well.
Best VRBO ever
All the important features of a short term rental are covered here. This VRBO is CLEAN, COMFORTABLE and CONVENIENT. It lacks nothing and has everything. Rent it with confidence. You will not be disappointed.
So happy to have people stay who love the house as much as we do, and care for it like their own home. We especially love being a hub for neighbors, helping family connect. So glad you had another great visit!
We spent two months in this wonderful home, and felt very much at home from Day 1. The house is fully equipped, which makes living there easy. The location - near stores and bus lines - is perfect. And the owners could not be more helpful.
We're so happy to have such lovely people making this their home away from home. Many thanks, again!
The Perfect home for our Portland Stay
My husband and our two young children, ages 4 and 2, stayed in this rental for 6 weeks this summer. Wendy was superb with communication both before our stay and during. The home was clean, charming and outfitted with everything we needed from laundry soap to a coffee bean grinder to a stroller for our little one. There was a wide array of toys, books and puzzles for our kids to enjoy, and we had tons of fun grilling, laying on the hammock and picking blueberries in the backyard. This rental is walkable to a great park, a library (you can take your little ones to story time even if you don't have a library card), an ice cream shop, coffee shop and a few nice grocery stores and restaurants.
It is a short drive from tons of things to keep you occupied during your stay from trails to hike, waterfalls to visit and lovely indoor museums. Portland is a foodie's dream location, a coffee lovers haven and a beer brewers paradise.
During a hot spell the air conditioner stopped working and Sue had someone to the house to fix it within an hour! Both Wendy and Sue have done a great job setting up this place and making sure tenants are comfortable. I would highly recommend this home to anyone wishing to stay in Portland for a spell. You will not be disappointed! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. If we go back to Portland, we will definitely plan to stay here again!
We're so glad we could be your home away from home. It was lovely to have your family and we appreciated your patience when we had to deal with house challenges. We hope you have reason to come stay again!
A True Home Away From Home!
My husband and I spent several weeks in Portland, staying in this lovely house. Wendy was wonderful to deal with and she had thought of everything we might need to make our stay perfect. We chose this location to be within walking distance of our son's home and of the up-and-coming Woodstock area that has restaurants, grocery stores, and interesting shops. We highly recommend this location for a perfect stay.
We so enjoyed having you at the house, again! Thank for you taking such nice care of everything in your home away from home.
