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.
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

About Shelly Kintzinger
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!
Shelly Kintzinger purchased this House in 2010

Fabulous Cottage in the Heart of Lake Oswego
This is such a lovely cottage! It is in the ideal neighborhood for walking everywhere! The hosts are wonderful and make sure you have every comfort and convenience! This is a delightful place to stay and I enthusiastically and recommend this cottage for a perfect stay in Lake Oswego or Portland.
Charming well equipped cottage in quiet walkable neighborhood.
Wonderful cottage on great Lake Oswego neighborhood. Easy to walk to shops and farmers market held on Saturday mornings in the summer. Cottage was well equipped with everything like shampoo, conditioner and soaps in the bathroom and even some waters, beer and soda in the fridge. Beds were very comfortable to sleep in and AC was available in upstairs bedrooms. Shelly kindly turned the AC on for us for our late arrival since it was 90+ degree during the day. Cottage was clean and very charming located in quiet neighborhood in a garden setting. If you are looking for a place to stay in Lake Oswego area this is it!!!
Shelly was an amazing hostess! Very friendly and helpful!

Great location, comfy home, gorgeous outdoor space
Our family of 4 stayed for 10 days at this little oasis. Cute cottage with comfortable furnishings within walking distance to all of Lake Oswego (restaurants, groceries, farmers market, etc). The hosts are warm and welcoming. It is very clean, nicely decorated and has everything you will need. The outdoor space is really great...enjoyed coffee in the "outdoor living room" on many mornings. The neighborhood is super cute and we enjoyed many evening walks. We certainly hope to return!!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. It was so fun to meet you all. You have a wonderful family. Come again"-)
