Just off of the south side of the St. Johns bridge, this non-smoking no-pet property, is in Forest Park, just 10 minutes by car to Portland's Northwest District and Thurman Street, 8 minutes to the University of Portland, 10-15 minutes drive away from the Pearl District for all of the bars and restaurants one might desire, 15 minutes to OHSU, and Portland State, as well as just a minute or two over the St. John's bridge to grocery stores, the post office, shops, and restaurants. This location is just three minutes (over the bridge) to your nearest Safeway!
Across the street from one of the largest urban parks in America with over 5000 acres, Forest Park provides endless paths and a wilderness experience (might prefer a car for reaching trail heads). This townhouse offers views of 3-4 volcanoes, the Willamette River and St. John's bridge. You will want a car - you really NEED a car - at this location to go pretty much anywhere, but there IS a bus if issues present themselves: http://trimet.org/pdfs/schedulemaps/016.pdf
This location is perfect for four or fewer people! One small bathroom is downstairs off of the living room and kitchen area for guests, while two additional full bathrooms are upstairs with three carpeted bedrooms. The bedrooms upstairs include one queen bed (room #1), two twin beds (room #2), and there is an empty third bedroom for yoga or just extra space. The patio offers water and volcano views, and the kitchen features granite counter tops, SS appliances, dining table for four plus two bar stools, as well as a complete set of dishes and cookware.This location is not ideal for BBQ time, and there is no BBQ equipment.
High-speed wireless service is available. In addition, there's one television with very basic cable in the living room, but otherwise is is a fairly low-tech space - there are not speakers for music or that sort of thing.
This is a non-smoking residence, and animals/boats/trailers/motorcycles/etc. are NOT permitted here (with the neighbors’ bedroom windows over the driveway, big fun toys can actually be problematic). Except in the case of animal reports or smoking/noise/parking/neighbor complaints, key loss or damages to the property, security deposits will be returned within 7 days of check out.

About Catherine Brooks
I am a working professor who likes to spend time away from home - this is my writing retreat.
Catherine Brooks purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Catherine Brooks chose Linnton
Having spent time remodeling a 1950s condo and then a 100-year old home, I like new construction. This is a large town home with a warm fireplace in a very quiet location.
What makes this Condo unique
The views of the volcanoes and river are stunning, and I enjoy jetting out for a quick hike in Forest Park. This condo is relatively new, so it is just a nice place to spend some time.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect for 2 months
I absolutely loved this condo. I stayed for 2 months and it was awesome to have a place that felt like a home. The view is amazing especially when you compare it to other listings. You do need a car or at least a bike to get around. I personally like that it's out of the way and away from the chaos of downtown. The owner is fantastic and keeps the condo clean and supplied with little amenities. In the end, I would 100% recommend staying in this condo. There's tons of room, awesome view, and plenty of peace and quiet.
Oasis in the city
We had the pleasure of staying in this safe, secluded & quiet spot on the bluff, conveniently located minutes from St. Johns and downtown. We were pleasantly surprised we could avoid most of the rush hour traffic, too. We could order delivery from a variety of restaurants, even though it's a bit further out from the city. My favorite part was seeing Mt Hood on clear days and my kids enjoyed watching the ships unloading across the water.
The door has an easy access code so we didn't need keys during our stay. We enjoyed the gas fireplace many mornings & evenings. The only drawback was the lack of places to walk around outside with kids. The stairs down to the sidewalk led to the busy road below which wasn't very walkable with small kids. We ended up driving to St Johns alot for the great parks! This VRBO was a great little place for my family.
The apartment was very nice and clean. I love the view of the river and watching the activity on it.
Would stay again
We stayed here Oct 2017. It was a good deal and the condo was very clean. We had a little issue getting in using the lock, however the owner answered right away and we figured it out. It was cloudy during our stay, so no view of the volcanoes. Location was good, depending on where you'll be traveling, however be aware that traffic is pretty bad in that area during the rush hours. If you can plan around that, you'll be fine.
A little hard to get in and out with the street traffic.
Well equipped and furnished. Could use a 2nd blow dryer. Catherine was very easy to deal with. Convenient location to explore from.
A Good Choice
My wife and I stayed here for a week and were very comfortable. The condo is almost new, large, and nicely furnished with the essentials. Good location, convenient to explore Portland and surrounding area.
This relatively new townhome is clean, new, quiet, safe, and very comfortable for small family or romantic getaways, as well as for executive travel. Just a few minutes from shops and grocery stores, this property is near St. Johns (TWO minutes over the bridge to St. Johns) but technically in Forest Park (Just off of the south side of the St. Johns bridge). You do need a car, but you will be right across the street (and down the road a bit) from Forest Park trail heads, a large wilderness space with endless trails for walking, running, and hiking. Hiking in Forest Park, enjoying St. Johns and views of its bridge, as well as dinners in the Pearl District are all very easy from here.
