About Carol Linderman

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.

Carol Linderman purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Carol Linderman chose Lake Oswego

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.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to the Lake Oswego house. It was close enough to Portland that we could visit our son every day but out of the city enough that it was peaceful and quiet. Carol was great, she contacted me several times during the week to make sure our visit was going well. We will definitely stay there again.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed here in the rainy spring, and it was delightful. The house is clean, cozy, and well-stocked. The owner was responsive to questions, and the location is ideal for accessing Lake Oswego or other Portland suburbs. The backyard was under some modifications while we were there, but given all the rain, we didn't miss it much. Will definitely stay again.

Great peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean, super cute and we loved the yard! I especially appreciated the natural dish soap and the foam mattress on the master bed. Very comfortable. We would definitely come back!

Run down property in a great neighborhood

  • 1 of 5

This home has had some cosmetic updates but is in general very run down. The single bathroom is very tiny, almost play house size. Kitchen is functional, but tight for more than one person at a time. There seemed to be construction going on in a second story, and no screens on the windows. Don't be fooled by the nightly price, with cleaning and fees, it was almost $200 a night. It would have been nice if there were some necessities like Kleenex's provided. Lake Oswego is a wonderful place, great parks, paths. But I would not stay in this home again.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry our fully renovated cottage did not meet your expectations. We try to set expectations realistically regarding the size, and have noted on the website that that the bathroom is indeed small, but cute and clean with a full-sized tub. The unfinished second story is not part of the rental and not under construction. We always leave a welcome card with cell phone numbers for both Carol and Jim so guests can call or text us with any questions or requests. We could have easily told you how to use the window screens (yes, they are provided) or brought you Kleenex tissues as we only live a few minutes away. We try our best to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable and will always respond to requests as quickly as possible.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful! Cute, comfortable and clean. Wonderful, convenient location. The only thing we wished for was a kettle to heat water for tea, but of course, a pot did the job. :-) Highly recommend!
