About Janet Powers

Our family resides in Lake Oswego, a suburb of Portland, Oregon.

Janet Powers purchased this house in 2004

Why Janet Powers chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

This property was perfect for us because it was an hour away, driveway to driveway (unlike Sunriver and other vacation getaways). As a skier, it is nice to reside below the snow line, so there is no shoveling snow-just fun! In the summertime we have a swimming pool and tennis court, and we get the amazing river all year round!

What makes this house unique

Home theatre with reclining theatre seats, swimming pool, tennis court, riverfront and easy access to Mt. Hood recreation. Air hockey table in garage, foosball table. Hiking trails, located directly on the beautiful Sandy River.

Nice getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went this time with my adult daughter and her fiance. It was a wonderful stay, the house is very nice and would be good for year round stays. The river is a little farther than I expected and if you are activity challenged, just take it slow. The river was gorgeous, the deck was excellent! The beds were comfortable and there is plenty of room. The theater was wonderful too and I fell in love with the theater recliners. There is plenty to do for outdoor activities around there. There is also a community center for that neighborhood that is just down the street. The hot tub was being serviced when we were there and we never did make it to the pool, but there were families there everyday frolicking in the water. The firefly bakery which is close is a very good cafe. The tavern on the way there makes a mean bloody mary. Janet is very gracious and always accesible.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your excellent review-I think I need to try one of those bloody mary's -watched the Duck Game there recently! You were lovely guests and we hope to see you back. I have to comment on your "river is further away" comment. I've never been riverfront before this, and these rivers MOVE! The river used to be much closer and during one flood was up to our back steps! THe authorities tell/warn me....it will be closer again! YIKES! Again, thank you!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home away from home. We were there with our two boys (7 and 5) who enjoyed going to the Sandy River, playing in the neighborhood pool, travelling up to Mt. Hood to hike, and enjoy relaxing at this great home. it has all the amenities you need and more. The property is very well-maintained and was set up for a fire inside or campfire outside. Janet did a great job communicating and was wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this retreat and we look forward to going there again. Thank you for a great weekend full of fun family memories.

Incredible getaway in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly amazing. I have stayed in a lot of rentals from homeaway and have never found a place that was as well-maintained and comfortable as this one. In fact, we were so happy with it that after staying one week last year we came back this summer for an entire month. All of our needs were taken care of—I didn’t even miss home. All of the furniture is cozy and it great shape. The beds are also comfortable and the kitchen is recently remodeled and well-stocked. There is even a movie/game room for the kids complete with big screen, video game system, bunk beds, air hockey and foosball. My daughter was entertained in there for hours. Most impressive is the incredible location. You can see and hear the Sandy River from the master bedroom and patio—which is literally right in their backyard. And you are right down the road from the some of the best hiking spots I have ever seen—including Ramona Falls and the Wildwood recreation area. You can’t ask for more. I would never stay anywhere else when I come back to the Portland area.

I can’t say enough about how helpful the owner was. She was willing to go the extra mile to provide information and accommodate our needs. I will definitely be staying here next summer!

Owner's Response: Wow-you are the ultimate guest, in so many ways. We welcome you back with open arms! I now added a printer for you, so you can "work"' from the cabin. Thank you for the kind review, and we look forward to seeing you Summer of 2017!
