Delightful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

While my friend and I were planning our trip to the Portland area to attend a wedding, we debated about staying in a hotel or looking for some other type of lodging. I had heard quite a few positive comments about VRBO. It didn't take to much searching on the website to find this little gem called "The Travelers Retreat."

Shortly after arriving we were greeted by Jim, the owner. Jim took us on a tour of the Travelers Retreat, showing us how to operate all of the amenities. He answered all of our questions as well as suggesting some good restaurants in the area.

Jim was willing to help with any needs that came up. However, that wasn't necessary as this little "home away from home" came with every need already provided.

The Retreat is extremely clean, decorated in good taste, was very peaceful and nestled in a beautiful country landscape. This is a top-notch spot. We were so happy to have chosen the tranquil Travelers Retreat over a noisy hotel in downtown Portland.

This being our first experience with VRBO...the bar has been set very high. Hopefully our next VRBO rental will measure up to this lovely location. We highly recommended staying here.

Thank you Travelers Retreat and Jim & Betsie for a wonderful weekend.

A very appropriately named property - It was indeed a relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The rental owners were so responsive, accommodating, and accessible, and they completely respect the privacy of their VRBO clients. The Traveler's Retreat provides a peaceful respite, and is located in an area with wide open spaces, and gorgeous rolling hills. It is also conveniently located, where one can access major interstates in a couple-minutes drive. The rental itself was immaculate, and was supplied with all the amenities we needed. This rental does not have a full kitchen, but a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine are all available. Overall, the Retreat was fabulous, and exactly what we were hoping for. We would absolutely stay there again!

Great location, comfortable and inviting

  • 4 of 5

Great cozy place to stay while in town! My daughter and I were only there a couple nights but it was very warm and inviting. Just far enough off the beaten path but in the middle of everything we needed.

Thanks Jim and Betsie!
