About Laurie Davis

Van and I have lived in the Northwest for 22 years. We fell in love with the beauty and outdoor activities.

Laurie Davis purchased this house in 2013

Why Laurie Davis chose Washington State

We wanted a view of nature, a large outdoor living space, lots of natural light, high ceilings, wood floors, and we like the craftsman style of our home. We can walk down or bike to the Salmon Creek Trail and a short drive downtown to restaurants, cafes, and the waterfront along the Columbia River. We enjoy going to Portland, which is nearby. We hike in the Columbia River Gorge and ski at Mt. Hood. On weekends the beach is a 2 hour drive. We love the Northwest!

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and quiet. We slept serenaded by an owl and woke to have tea looking out of the forested hill below.

I had difficulty using the Apple TV and entertainment center, but that's more comment on my technical skills that on the electronics.

The property owners made us feel welcome with a written note and a bottle of wine and a bottle of cider. They always responded quickly to our questions. When our travels bring us back to the area we'll definitely look to see if this property is available.

Daughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We live in the Midwest and traveled out to Vancouver for our daughter's wedding which was in Portland. The open floor plan of the home was very inviting and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed the back deck overlooking the say it was peaceful and quiet would be an understatement. The owner, Laurie, was very attentive to our needs and stayed in touch throughout our stay...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again. Thank you Laurie!

The Perfect Place To Spend A Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great 7 nights at this house. It was the perfect place for us to do some sightseeing from. It was an easy drive to Mount St Helens and down to Oregon City and Silverton. Spent a morning playing on the Par 3 Golf Course, just behind the house, and really appreciated the use of the golf clubs. In the evening we were able to relax in this lovely house and made good use of all the comfy sofas. We also had good sleeps on the very comfortable beds and in the morning the patio was the perfect place for breakfast. The house is very spacious and in excellent decorative order and the sun shone through the windows every day, sheer bliss.

Laurie the owner was fantastic to deal with and it was a pleasure to meet her and her husband. They were superb when we had a slight problem with the A.C. unit. I would highly recommend this wonderful house as a base for a vacation.

Royal Oaks Invitational Golf Tournament

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful clean, fully stocked and nicely appointed property inside and out. The ONLY thing we lacked was the ability to adjust the AC as it was very warm and humid during our stay. We expect and hope to be able to secure this property for next year during the same timeframe and will ask the owners to help us with AC adjustment.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed playing golf here and liked our home. The directions to adjust the thermostat are in the home instructions notebook and when I talked with you on the phone on your 2nd day you said everything was great. I wish I would have known you needed help turning it down. Please don't hesitate to call me for any issue as we want this to be a pleasant experience for all our guests. Warm regards, Laurie

Great Family Gathering Spot.

  • 5 of 5

How happy we all were to get to stay here at this perfect home! It was our daughter's 40th birthday, our 44th anniversary, and our 2nd grandson turned 6 months old. Such a special place to celebrate all these milestones! Thank you so much for everything even down to the details a family could possibly need. The serenity and the sounds of the woods in the back, flowers for eye candy, such comfortable beds and furniture, a cozy fireplace on a cool evening, and lots of glorious light streaming through plenty of windows in the morning. What more can anyone want? Thank you so much!
