Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Jim and Carol have owned their cottage for 23 years. We love to travel both domestically and abroad and know that staying in comfortable unique place can make a vacation magical. We can be found cycling through the neighborhood, hiking through Tryon Creek, eating at a favorite restaurant, or attending one of our children's many school and sporting events.

Why the Owner Chose First Addition, Lake Oswego, OR, USA:
Proximity to parks, access to Portland, and a safe friendly community with great schools attracted us to this neighborhood over 23 years ago. We love it and have raised a family here taking advantage of all the community has to offer. We still live just 5 blocks away and are here to help you enjoy exploring the beautiful northwest from the comforts of our sweet cottage.
