About the property

One bedroom, one bath, sleeps 3

This home is a new and beautifully furnished cottage in historic Oregon City. The living/dining area and the large bedroom overlook the back patio, which offers nature at its best. Enjoy the garden and the visiting birds with a breathtaking mountain view.

The modern kitchen and dining area boast gorgeous marble counter tops. Appliances include a side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, micro/convection oven, electric counter top two burner stove, coffee pot, a 4 slice toaster, and blender. It is a full use kitchen for take-out or a home cooked meal.

The living room is furnished with glider and recliner chairs, and a sleeper love seat. A large flat screen tv is over gas fireplace. Slider doors open to a peaceful patio surrounded by nature and a view of mountains to the east.

There is a comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom with lots of built in cabinets for clothing and storage. Watch a large flat screen cable tv underneath a ceiling fan for a gentle refreshing breeze. Large windows open to a private back yard.

The bathroom has a tiled shower, marble counter top with single sink. The under sink and mirrored medicine cabinets provide plenty of storage for toiletries.

There is off street parking for one car. Our two lovable golden retrievers may greet you at the patio door and solicit your affection.

About Debbie Derusha

We (Craig and Debbie) care for 10 senior citizens in two nearby adult care homes. Friends often say they want to be in our care when they get old - or reincarnated as one of our dearly loved pets. The 600 sq ft cottage was built as an in-law unit located on our property. We have worked hard to create a beautiful peaceful atmosphere. We relocated from New England 24 years ago and have been living in our home since then.

Debbie Derusha purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Debbie Derusha chose Oregon City

In town for a wedding? Visiting family? Staying in a hotel? In town for sightseeing? Great country location in a bedroom community close to so many area attractions and destination points.

Cozy cottage was exactly what we needed and then some.

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to the Portland area, then look no further for a place to stay. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. We traveled in all directions from this location and enjoyed returning to the cottage each night. Day trips were made to the Maritime Museum in Astoria with a drive down the coast to Ecola State Park. Be sure to go to the Bonneville Dam and Multnomah Falls on the Columbia River. Our trip to Mt. St. Helen's in Washington was a full day trip. One of our best days was hiking at Silver Falls State Park where we saw 9 beautiful waterfalls. The full kitchen provided us with the ability to prepare all of our meals right at home. Grocery stores and gas stations were nearby. Debbie was such a plus to our stay!! She answered all of our questions and suggested points of interest that were not on our original itinerary. Lucy was the highlight for my husband who is a "dog magnet". We would text Debbie asking if Lucy could come to visit, if she was not sitting patiently looking in the door from the back yard. We plan to return to the cottage to explore more of Oregon in the future.

Gorgeous cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the nicest VRBO property that we have visited, and we've been to quite a few. It's even nicer in person than the pictures show: very clean and beautifully docorated with many fine touches, like the gas fireplace and well-appointed kitchen. Being greeted at the sliding glass door by Lucy, the owners golden retriever, was a great bonus! We were very happy we chose to rent this cottage over the much more expensive local hotel.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at the Cottage. We love this place and plan to stay here again. It was wonderful to be greeted by "Jack" and the next morning had a visit from "Smoky". Debbie and Craig have such a well maintained place, it just feels like - home!
