About the Property

750 SQ feet. 2 Bedrooms both with queen beds. Small kitchen, washer & dryer.

You will feel like all you need for the rest of your life is 750 sq. feet of comfort and simplicity. Our well appointed guest house dates back to 1890, one of the first homes in First Addition of Lake Oswego. Walk score of 95. Side gate entrance.

Kitchen: Apartment sized (7.3 cu ft) refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven , kuering, toaster oven, washer/dryer.

Bathroom is downstairs, both bedrooms are upstairs. There are about 10 stairs with railing.

In window A/C units (2) and fans, no central air conditioning.

Remodeled in the early 2000s. House was situated street side and moved to backyard to allow construction of new home. Outside patio lights and fountain add serenity. You will appreciate the privacy, yet so close to the heart of Lake Oswego. Queen bed in each room with comfy linens and down comforters. Good size closet in one. Nice furnishings...Restoration Hardware, Anthroplogie, West Elm, Wisteria, comfortable and colorful. Cute kitchen/dining area.

Wi-fi, 2 TV's with cable and DVD.

Shower/tub combo.

You will love the uniqueness and charm of First Addition. Very safe, mostly quiet, street parking. Close to Lewis and Clark College and Law School, many hospitals, downtown Portland - about 7 miles up Hwy 43. The walk score is 95! The immediate neighborhood is mostly residential, but a few commercial places Kyra's (Gluten free) bakeshop across the street! Barre 3 studio (pilates/ballet) and Spincycle, bars with live music too. The city itself has an amazing art on most corners, fun to explore those. Gosh, I could go on and on. I hope you can tell it is a vibrant little village.

There is a bus line stop at the Safeway, 1.5 blocks away. You can walk to shops, restaurants, frozen yogurt, farmers market, library, banks, post office, Tryon Creek trails, Safeway, 7-11, exercise studios and the Lake itself! All within 6 blocks.

Recent reviews:

This little guest house is too too cute. It is much cuter than the pictures suggest and looks like a Martha Stewart magazine spread come to life with the most comfy beds. Julie

A wonderful little cottage! Peaceful yet convenient to restaurants and shops. Nice decor and just the right size. Photos represented the house well. I will definitely return. Ann

The guest house was spotless and very welcoming. The bedding was hotel quality A+, same for the bath products and morning snacks. The neighborhood was quiet, quick walk to the lake. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Andrea

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hi! We moved to Lake Oswego about 6 years ago. We lived in Klamath Falls, OR for many years. We were so fortunate to find this charming neighborhood of 'First Addition' in LO & fell in love with this property and our guest house from the 1890's - when families from Portland would travel to Lake Oswego as a getaway. Our location is super convenient, I rarely drive, everything I need is within walking distance. Great trails if you like to run/walk too. I work from home and love meeting new people but I am fine leaving people 'be' if that's your style. Joy, excellence and kindness sum up this family well. See you soon!

Why the Owner Chose First Addition, Lake Oswego, OR, USA:
